Tainted Touch Review

Tainted Touch by Lucy V. Morgan


Twenty-year-old Caitlyn McCoe likes logic, cake and breaking a sweat. In that order. What she doesn't like is the fact that her manipulative ex, Dominic, has crawled out of the woodwork after their breakup last summer. She needs to concentrate on passing her business degree, not telling him to get lost. But fantasising about Fist Candy--the boxer she loves to watch at the gym, where she works--is excellent escapism. He's beautiful, untouchable...and safe.

Until he's her new co-worker. And then he's not safe at all.

Art Lyons was a rising star on the boxing circuit and a brilliant student. Then he dropped out, disappeared, and has just resurfaced as the new sports massage therapist at Caitlyn's gym. He doesn't want to talk about why he's no longer at uni; he doesn't want to explain the tattooed slashes across his hip.

But he's troubled by the connection he feels between the punch bag and the brush of a lover's fingers. He wants to use his hands to heal, not hurt. Caitlyn clams up when her friends go to hug her; after Dominic, something changed beneath her skin, twists the things she feels. If Art can find a way to reach beyond that, he could help her. She could heal him.

That's if they don't break each other first...

Holy Hell I'm in love with this book! I am so glad Lucy contacted the blog asking for a review because I may have not read this book otherwise. And now it's my time to tell you why you MUST read this book!!

First off Lucy has the whole first chapter available to read and that's what sold me to read it so here is the link to read it.

I loved every single page of this book. The writing, every single character, well except for Dominic..he is a fucktoad. The storyline is phenomenal!! A well deserved 5 star read for me! 

Art Lyons...oh man how I love this man! I think Caitlyn sums him up well with this sentence.

"He is Fist Candy, and deserving of proper nouns."<---oh b="" hell="" yes="">

Her best friend Vicky gives her this bit of advise.

Caitlyn is attracted to Art and soon learns that he is the new sports massage therapist at the gym where she works. Her ex really did a number on her and she fears the unknown, so she can't believe this man is flirting with her. They start dating and soon they both realize that they are each  harboring a past that they don't want to burden the other with. There is an almost first kiss scene fairly early in the book but at the last minute he pulls back. This devastates Cait's already fragile ego, so she withdrawals back into herself again.

^----makes me tingle in places just reading that!

Dominic suddenly re-appears in her life all of a sudden and it really pisses her off. So she takes her aggression out during her combat class. Only she pulls a muscle in her back in the process. Which lands her in "Fist Candy's seat. Can I volunteer to sit in his seat? I totally need a massage by Art!!!

Rich and Drew are a riot! I think they have become my favorite secondary characters of a book and think that Lucy needs to write their story next! Oh and I saw that Aidan is going to be in a story soon too, he is Art's brother who happens to be an escort. <---sign a="" and="" be="" beautiful.="" bit="" class="separator" every="" for="" is="" it="" laughs="" lot="" me="" of="" one="" p="" secrets="" style="clear: both; text-align: left;" that="" there="" to="" told="" up="" whole="">
Tainted Touch went straight to my favorites shelf, and I can't wait for everyone to meet Art and enjoy all his "Fist Candy"
