Only For Your Touch is the second installment in the Licks series. This is a stand-alone novel, you can start reading the series right here. This installment is the story of Corrine and Sasha. Sasha runs a sex club along with his two business partners. Sasha and Corrine meet at the club (although, Corrine is in the part that is just a regular club and is only aware of the sex club part by rumor).
Sasha managed to escape a life of crime in which he was somehow connected to the Irish mob. His goal in life, that he carefully manages, is to remain on the legal up and up and run his club and peace. Sasha has a Viking Warrior look, a need for control and an ultra alpha male exterior. In other words, he is kind of my perfect guy. Sasha had a difficult time leaving the criminal element of his past. He still yearns for the excitement of that life. So the last thing he needs is to tempt himself by going anywhere near his past deeds.
Corrine has had her whole world turned upside down. She thought she was the daughter of an upstanding businessman who had a very proper upbringing. Corinne did not realize that her father was the head of a mafia family and that her entire family are mobsters. She has recently been outed in the press and her father is in jail. Corrine's whole world has been turned upside down. After living her whole life repressing all of her sexual needs, she meets Sasha at a time when she is both looking for domination and to be dominated.
This story is exciting from the first page because Sasha immediately realizes who Corrine is. He knows the last thing he needs is to have Corrine bring mob attention to his club. The second to last thing he needs is a mob princess in his bed. Sasha wasn't prepared for Corrine to be everything he didn't know he was missing. The relationship between these two start out as pure sexual chemistry and exploration. It is very smoking hot but it is not supposed to go beyond a good time. Both quickly learn that their addiction to the other is more than just physical. I always love a heroine who can unlock a hero's damaged soul. I also loved that Sasha taught Corrine that it was okay to be herself in the light of day. Did I mention there is smoking hot sex?
This book is a super short, very fast paced read. It's not going to change your life but it will titillate and entertain you for a few hours.
