When a strange boy tumbles down a river embankment and lands at her feet, seventeen-year-old adrenaline junkie Deznee Cross snatches the opportunity to piss off her father by bringing the mysterious hottie with ice blue eyes home.
Except there’s something off with Kale. He wears her shoes in the shower, is overly fascinated with things like DVDs and vases, and acts like she’ll turn to dust if he touches her. It’s not until Dez’s father shows up, wielding a gun and knowing more about Kale than he should, that Dez realizes there’s more to this boy—and her father’s “law firm”—than she realized.
Kale has been a prisoner of Denazen Corporation—an organization devoted to collecting “special” kids known as Sixes and using them as weapons—his entire life. And, oh yeah, his touch? It kills. The two team up with a group of rogue Sixes hellbent on taking down Denazen before they’re caught and her father discovers the biggest secret of all. A secret Dez has spent her life keeping safe.
A secret Kale will kill to protect.
If you are a fan of X-Men or Heroes, then you are going to love Touch by Jus Accardo!
Touch brought out so many emotions in me while reading it. I finished reading it in one sitting and loved everything about it. Putting it down was not an option for me. I couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen next, and how it ended. The characters were super funny, especially Dez. Her life was completely turned upside down by bringing a stranger home as a joke to her father. By doing that she opened a box of pure craziness. Things that she wasn’t quite prepared to deal with.
Now all Dez has are questions and she wants to get to the bottom of everything. Her whole life was a lie and everything that never made sense before, now does. She also has a secret of her own that she is keeping. Trying to get to the bottom of everything while trying to keep her secret safe, Dez realizes that she is walking across a very dangerous line.
There is just so much more I want to say about Touch, but then I would give away spoilers. Let’s just say Touch is full of betrayal and secrets, lots of action, a little bit of romance, and a group of people who are different and have a very unique power. It is unpredictable and had me at the edge of my seat. The characters are fearless and everything about the story was very believable. I would love to see Touch become a TV series or a movie. A MUST READ!
