by Stoni Alexander
~ SYNOPSIS ~
Mirror, mirror, on the wall…
Taylor Hathaway is Mitus Conglomerate’s sweet, timid event planner and has always played it safe. But when forced into the spotlight at a DC fundraiser and auctioned off to a gorgeous stranger from out of town, she makes a bold choice. No strings. No regrets. And very little sleep…
Hospitality Magnate Jagger Loving sexy, bad boy of Loving Resorts offers everything from exotic to erotic at his luxurious, couples-only properties. Days before the launch of his first US-based hotel, a sudden setback throws his world into chaos and the grand opening promises to be a colossal flop. In walks his short-term fix…the strikingly beautiful Taylor Hathaway. But he knows her as Raven. And that’s not all he remembers about her.
Thrust together, they can’t deny their powerful attraction. While Jagger is forced to confront past sins to save his empire, Taylor must conquer a lifetime of insecurities to ensure he succeeds. Everything hinges on trust…and the obstacles each must overcome to prove their love is eternal.
*** NOTE: THE LOVING TOUCH, Book Three of The Touch Series, is a Novella. ***
~ EXCERPT ~
ALONE WITH JAGGER.
A low rumble ripped from the back of his throat, like a growl.
He’d hid his massive ego well the night they’d met, but here, on a Loving property, he was, without question, the one in control and the one with all the power. He exuded confidence. He oozed sex appeal. And she squirmed under his commanding gaze.
The giant wall clock ticked slowly compared to her speeding heart. Should she confess? Should she apologize for not telling him her real name and for vanishing the next morning?
“I’ll need your phone number.” His words were a command, not a request. “And this time, you’re going to give it to me.” Damn if he didn’t arch his eyebrow at her.
As soon as she did, her phone buzzed.
All thumbs, Taylor fumbled in her handbag, found her phone, and read his text. “Welcome to Loving.”
“Thank you, Mr. Loving,” she murmured.
When he stepped into her personal space, her breath quickened. She wanted to nuzzle the exposed skin in the V of his white dress shirt. Those damned kissable lips would be the death of her. When she peeked up at him, he was waiting.
“Call me Jagger.” His piercing glare cut right through her. “Do you go by Taylor or is there another name you’d prefer I use?”
For a long moment, they stared into each other’s eyes as the unspoken truth danced on the tip of her tongue…

Fly Girl’s Review:
This is the third book in the Touch Series I’ve reviewed for Stoni Alexander. Check out the review for The Mitus Touch and for The Wilde Touch. This is a novella in in the series so it was actually a very quick read. There was still the steamy sex and character development we expect from her writing, so you won’t be disappointed.
Jagger and Taylor’s romance starts out a little unconventional in this one. Neither were looking for love, in fact a one night stand with no strings attached was the plan. Until they got thrown together by Colton Mitus unbeknownst to any of them that these two had already met. And so the fireworks begin. This one takes place in Malibu with such excitements as nude beaches, sex theater, and of course, it isn’t California without, an earthquake…or two. That was all outside of the bedroom games.
For serious HEA though, Jagger has addiction and reputation issues to overcome while Taylor works on her self confidence and assertiveness issues. Both come up smelling like roses. I will say she added a little toxicity to the romance near the end that I’m not sure needed to be there, but it works. Also, the jabbering assistant made for a good laugh as well. Who doesn’t love a little sex on the beach to put the cherry on top?
My only issue was the length, I feel like Jagger and Taylor’s story could have been a full novel so for that it is a 4.5 of 5 propellers from me. Stoni, I know the next installment, The Hott Touch, comes out soon, so I’m expectantly waiting to see how Maverick’s romance turns out. I know it will be as good as these last three so bring it on.
