Review: Touch~ Jus Accardo

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.

So my first thought- “the author dives into the world of Dez a teenage girl set out to piss her dad off” great…

But then when the story started moving forwards I kind of got used to this idea of Dez and her dad, but hold on a second! There was a lot about this book that annoyed me, like for instance…
At the very start I got so confused, I actually wasn’t sure if Dez was a girl or a boy until about five pages in (I didn’t read about the book I just started it) so not a great start, but when Kale came along it was promising. The beginning was actually really captivating even though I was confused I really loved the action and the promise that it held.
Another thing that really ticked me off was Dez- I really liked her punk look and her sarcasm and just her but halfway through she became so annoying! It seemed like she believed whatever she was told, and she didn’t question anything! It was as if she couldn’t be bothered to think it all through.

So just to get everything out of the way yet another thing that really annoyed me was how easy this whole thing seemed to me! Everything seemed to just land in their laps and all they had to do was follow through with whatever it is they needed to do- it wasn’t at all mysterious or thrilling. Is it just me or did her cousin Brandt just happened to know everything and knew where to find every little thing that Dez needed? 

But fear not! I did enjoy this book quite a bit! And here are the reasons why…

I never thought I would come by a book where the girl has to teach the guy about sex and kissing and everything else that well they should already know. And it was brilliant! It was really cheesy, funny and awkward which makes it even BETTER!

And Kale, I wouldn’t mind running into him any time, he was hot charming and just plain adorable. And the main thing I loved about him was how much he cared for Dez and he wanted to protect her all the time it was just so sweet.

So even though the start and some aspects of this book annoyed the crap out of me I still loved it! Halfway through when action was picking up and I mean both fighting and in the bedroom if you know what I mean
- yeah there was an actual sex scene! Not being creepy or anything but a lot of books lack that the romance just feels well bleh, it doesn’t seem like any teenage romance nowadays. But this book didn’t lack anything! It was just brilliant- and because of the romance and what was going on and obviously because of Kale I do admit I enjoyed it quite a bit. 

~~It looks a lot more creepier then I intended it to! 

Kissed~ I won't mind showing Kale what a kiss is~
