Remy O’Malley heals people with touch—but every injury she cures becomes her own. Living in a household with an abusive stepfather, she has healed untold numbers of broken bones, burns, and bruises. And then one night her stepfather goes too far.

Being sent to live with her estranged father offers a clean start and she is eager to take it. Enter Asher Blackwell. Once a Protector of Healers, Asher sacrificed his senses to become immortal. Only by killing a Healer can a Protector recover their human senses. Falling in love is against the rules between these two enemies. Because Remy has the power to make Protectors human again, and when they find out, they’ll be coming for her—if Asher doesn’t kill her first.

This is Book One in the Touched trilogy.

 Touched by Corrine Jackson was a great read! It was a Romeo and Juliet type of story that had twists and turns! I will admit some things in the story were a bit predictable and some even a bit cliché (there’s some mind reading that I understand but could have done without) but it didn't matter because I devoured this story! Oh and don’t get distracted by the Twilightish cover I know it’s not the prettiest thing but the story is good!

I loved the idea of Healers and Protectors and I really loved Remy as a MC, her strength was amazing! I don’t know if I could have been as strong as her in an abusive situation like that. Oh and I really liked that she had to absorb people’s injuries to heal them I think that made me love her even more to see that she was willing to injure herself to help others. I also loved her Dad in this story normally I’m kinda meh about the parental units in YA books but I absolutely loved Ben!  Oh and I loved, loved, loved Asher he was gorgeous, frustrating, brave, infuriating, loving, and mysterious! Oh and a bad boy with a motorcycle to boot!

I loved Asher’s brother Gabe he’s a total ass but there was something about him that just drew me to him. So yep as normal I’m team bad boy I’ll take Gabe and Remy can have Asher ;) ;)

People that love a good paranormal love story will eat this one up!

I chose a passage between Remy and Asher where she finds out he’s been reading her mind.

I stared at Asher and waited. ‘Are you reading my mind?’

He hesitated and then nodded.

I sagged in my seat as I remembered the night at the pool and the times before that when my thoughts had focused on him. On my growing feelings for him. Horror had me cringing at the idea that he’d heard it all.

‘How long? How long have you been listening?’

“Off and on since you healed me,” he admitted.

Humiliation flooded through me, and my thoughts should have set him on fire.

He held up a hand after a moment to halt the mental onslaught.

“Remy.” He closed his eyes and rubbed his forehead as if he had a headache. “I didn't choose this. You know I didn't  We’re changing the longer we’re near each other. I know you feel it.”

couldn't disagree. My mental walls had grown tougher and more flexible after his constant prodding and that other ability—the frightening ability to twist pain and energy back on another—had grown stronger too. Undeniably, he’d changed me. Still, I sensed he meant something more.

With effort, I made my mind a blank wasteland to shut him out.

His eyes focused, and he smiled. “You don’t give an inch do you?”

“What are you trying to tell me?”

“It’s only a matter of time before other Protectors find out about you. It’s a miracle you've lasted alone this long. I didn't want to feel anything for you, but we’re past that now. I’m a Protector, Remy. You’re a healer. You could be the one we've heard rumors about, the one who could make us mortal again. I give you fair warning that I intend to take my duty very seriously.”

‘Whether I want you to or not.’ I could hear the promise implied in his tone.

“I’m sorry, but yes.”

“Get out of my head!” I said, in a fierce whisper.

He shrugged in apology, but his voice had an edge of humor. “I’m not sure I can. Honestly, I’m not sure I would even if I knew how. This link could be the most powerful asset I have since I suspect you won’t be talking to me for a while.”
