Emotional
Untouchable: An Unacceptables MC Standalone Romance - Kristen Hope Mazzola

I'll be the first to admit that I don't read many MC romances, but this series has me hooked. It's a rare treat to find such complex characters in book of this length and the emotions that the author packs into those pages run the gamut. This group of people is more than just a club, this is a family in every sense of the word. The club is still reeling from the loss of their president when Sloan rolls into town and meets Trent. This pair certainly has some obstacles to overcome - he's a recovering addict and she's on the run from an abusive ex - but when they come together, the sparks fly. There is reference to the abuse that Sloan has suffered and the story of how Trent was introduced to heroin is absolutely heartbreaking. The romance is some pretty quick love and fan yourself sexy, but these two seem so right together. Overall, Untouchable is a novella length read that is beautifully written, and packed full of action, suspense, emotion, romance, and steam. I can't wait to see what's next for this series. Note that the story does get violent and there are some graphic descriptions.

Untouchable Darkness - Rachel Van Dyken

Not special, not bad either. Well, that about sums it up.

it grows on you!
Untouchable Lover - Rosalie Redd
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. A few short months ago, on the world of Lemuria, two Gods declared war over Earth. Some 10,000 years later on Earth, that battle still rages. But time is drawing to a close, and there must be a winner. King Noeh leads his people, in the war. Melissa is on the run from a leader who wants to enslave her. Together, they bring to the table unique abilities and insight, that might just sway the war in their favour. For me, this took time to build into Noeh and Melissa's story. There is much back story at the beginning and at first I thought, yeah, okay, this is good, but not brilliant. BUT, as the story unfolds, both the Melissa?Noeh arc and the much bigger picture, I appreciated that beginning. I really did! The much bigger arc is huge. Like MASHOOSIVE, and spans all three books so far (I read them all, THEN wrote the reviews) And you gotta be on your toes, keeping up because in places this book runs at rocket speed! And if I have to slow down my reading, thats a darn good thing, trust me! Melissa and Noeh's story moves at a much more sedate pace, and I did like that, since the bigger picture moves so fast. They take time to get to know each other but still are butting heads all the time. A thoroughly enjoyable read, for sci-fi and paranromal fans alike. I apologise if I say the same thing in all three reviews! 4 solid stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

Untouchable Lover (Worlds of Lemuria: Earth Colony #1) by Rosalie Redd
Untouchable Lover - Rosalie Redd
Untouchable Lover is the first book in the Worlds of Lemuria: Earth Colony series, and takes its time to introduce you to a whole new world! Lemuria and it's inhabitants are numerous and individual. There is one thing that draws them all together though, and that is the need for water. When Alora, a Colonizer, finds Earth, she hopes to make it a free planet. However, an ex-lover also lays claim to it, wanting it to a be a slave planet. They have one Lemurian year - or twenty thousand Earth years - to win the war against each other, to decide the fate of Earth. Noeh is the King of the Stiyaha, happy with his single life. He has no plans to bond with anyone, not after seeing his father die once his mother passed. However, the Gods, or rather Alora, has a different plan for him, which involves a member of the Dren species, Melissa. With a time limit in place, both Melissa and Noeh have choices to make if they are to survive.
 
This is a fast-paced book, with a well written history, and a smooth plot that is just the right speed. Yes, the attraction is instantaneous between Noeh and Melissa, but both of them fight it. With plenty of characters and species to get your teeth into, there is a wonderful story-line being fulfilled. With no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow, I would definitely recommend this book. An excellent start to the series.

Untouchable (Blake Harte Mystery #1) - DNF @ 22%
Untouchable (The Blake Harte Mysteries Book 1) - Robert Innes

I could've muddle through the dry prose, I really could have. It lacked emotion, but it wasn't all telling/no showing. There was an attempt at showing in between all the info-dumping. But there were two things I just could not deal with:

 

1) The domestic abuse angle. It requires finesse and skill to tell this kind of story right, and I just wasn't feeling it here. It was very textbook. Maybe the execution of this plot line gets better as the story progresses, but I didn't have the patience to find out.

 

2) The grammar is terrible. Words are randomly capitalized in the middle of sentences. And Innes consistently, without fail, uses incorrect punctuation in all his dialogue. All of it.

 

"I'm going to the store." She said. - Incorrect.
"I'm going to the store," she said. - Correct.

 

This is Basic English 100.

 

Still, there are good bones here, considering this is the first story by this author. A better editor and some more filling in the corners, and you've got a promising story. It just isn't this story.

 

I can't comment on how the mystery aspect of it unfolds since I didn't get to that part before I gave up.
