REVISED COVER & TITLE PREVIOUSLY A TOUCH OF LUST.
You deserve to trust someone unconditionally and that someone is you.
Not only does Michelle Horst write beautiful story's with heartwarming and heartbreaking moments she never fails to impart touching messages to her readers.
her words are chosen with finesse and care even after the Epilogue.
From the cover to the Title it wasn't what I expected at all.
I was quickly pulled into the story and Liam's agonising memories from the loss of his sister.
When Liam and Mila meet its in a college setting and from the moment his eyes see her there's a magnetic pull but he watches her from afar for two years and the last day of college he finally makes his move before his chance is lost.
Mila is from a similar background to Liam and slowly everything unfolds and you follow the journey of two people destiny brought together.
"Just a touch of Lust, that's all it takes to prove to you that you belong to me"
Liam's sweet words and phrases is enough to make any girl swoon but Mila has a hidden dark past and is too afraid to expose it to Liam's light. A damaged girl unable to move forward because of what she left behind, and a fear that consumes her into pushing even those she loves away.
I was gripped and taken on Liam and Mila's emotional journey told in dual pov's.
I felt there was a jump in the plot from Liam and Mila's time apart and a sudden twist that occurs without build up but other than that there is a brilliant balance of emotional pull throughout the plot and the intensity within the intimate moments are well written.
Michelle Horst never fails to introduce me to a Heroine and hero who not only tug on my heart but give me joy when they save each other.
Liam was right - People are like feathers some keep you flying for a short while before they leave, and then a new person takes their place.
A recommended emotional heartwarming read that touches on sensitive issues containing cult involvement but does not go into to much into depth on such but focuses on the future and the journey forward of the characters.
Authors words:If you're going to give it all, then give it your all for you.

Liam Wright is the playboy at college. He’s part of the screw-crew.
It’s better to stay away from him, but you can’t tell your heart what to want.
He’ll judge me.
He won’t understand.
It’s easy to judge someone because of their past. I’m scared Liam will be just like all the other people.
But he doesn’t judge me. He comes into my life and refuses to leave. He doesn’t give up on me.
He helps me accept the guilt that lives inside of me, because it also lives inside of him.
We’re both damaged by the past.
We’re both looking for someone who will understand.
We’re both looking for someone we can surrender to.
But it’s hard surrendering all your broken pieces.
“Some feathers will fall along the way, but new ones will always grow back. It doesn’t make the old feathers less important because they kept you flying for so long – they kept you alive.”
