    1. Memorable characters, heart pounding action, sizzling hot romance--TOUCH has it all! Definitely fresh and new. You need to read this book like yesterday. If not, I'll send Kale after you.


    2. I'm afraid I was not a very big fan of this one. The book starts out with a great action scene, the beginnings of an intriguing mystery, and I really liked Deznee's punky look and sarcastic attitude. Unfortunately, I felt as though she believed everything she was told, asked far too few questions, ran away with Kale far too quickly, and she started to get a little too boy-crazy for my taste. While some of the events are certainly fun and kept my interest at first, they seemed to be so loosely pl [...]


    3. OMG OMG OMG!!!!!1000000000000000000000/5 stars!!!!!My brain has exploded after reading TOUCH!!! It has the best ROMANCE, best STORY, best COVER, best KICK ASS GIRL and most swoontastically, best SHIRTLESS GUYFirst, our rocking girl Dez (I love that bitch!!) she is just The best thing?? SHE LIVES TO PISS HER DAD TO HELL well, I love ma dad, but if I had a father like that, I would surely be worse than Dez ;p. She is totaly kick-ass, expert at sarcasm, a super sexy girl with a brain. One of the st [...]


    4. I love it when you don't know what to expect from a book and it ends up being awesome. Touch was the perfect example. I picked this up thinking it would be just another passable YA paranormal, but it was fantastic. It reminded me a lot of the TV show Heroes - people with supernatural abilities get locked up by this agency who want to use them for testing or for their own purposes. The energy vibrating from the book, though, was very much like The Summoning series by Kelley Armstrong - and had a [...]


    5. OH HOT DAMN!!!!!!! *wiping off sweat* That was some crazy intense shit there! Sorry, for the foul mouth. But, HOLY HELL! Okay so seriously, I had no idea what to expect when I bought this. I stumbled upon it on my nook and saw it was like 5 bucks. So I figured, hey what the hell. I will give it a try. Not to mention, the guy on the cover. DO YOU SEE HIM??? Yea, he is definitely some eye freakin candy alright. So I went for it. After seeing mostly all FIVE STARS, I figure what do I have to lose? [...]


    6. I THINK I HAVE SERIOUSLY LOST IT. TOUCH IS AMAZING AND I DON'T KNOW HOW TO WRITE THIS REVIEW WITHOUT TURNING IT TO A FANGIRLING DIARRHEA WITH ME WRITING IN ALL CAPS (IN BOLD LETTERS) AND USING GIFS SUCH AS THIS I MEAN FOR REALZZZZZZ!It's Crazy!!!With a capital C.My fabulous friends from twitter, namely Janette, Kristy and Cindi pushed (Virtually, of course)me to read this book. They said it was awesome, butHOLY SHIRTLESS KALE!!! , I didn't know it was THIS AWESOME. SO NOT READY FOR THAT. I will [...]


    7. "They do not control you. You don't kill for them anymore."His voice came in soft, cracked rasps. "No, I don't. But I would kill for you. Only you."I'm fascinated with stories in which people can harm another person with a touch. I loved the way it was executed in Holly Black's Curseworkers series, so I was happy to see a similar concept introduced in this book as well. Even though the first half of Touch started sort of shaky, I felt like the second half really stepped it up on the action. My h [...]


    8. THAT was awesome. Action-packed with so many twists and turns that you don't know who to trust from chapter to chapter. And high-level sizzling sensuality. I adored Kale's mix of innocence and allure. And Dez's sassiness and spunk. A super fun YA!!!


    9. “As long as I know this" - he lifted our joined hands - "is mine to hold, I'll wait for you forever.”Re-read: 20.12.15 Man I still love this book! It's still bloody fantastic, and Kale is still amazing! <3 I seriously love how fresh Kale is. How new the real world is to him, how he handles it. Simply amazing. Love it! Sure I'll re-read it yet again in the future ;)“If I had the ability to touch anyone else in this world, I still don't believe I'd want it to be anyone but you.”


    10. My review of Touch on my blogMy Book Boyfriend-Kale!My 8 reasons why you should read TouchTouch is one of my favorite books of 2011. There I said it. So don’t be surprised in December when Touch shows up on those lists! I have pre-ordered a paperback copy and I bought it for my Kindle. CRAZY!I’m writing this review with my heart beating out of my chest and my hands shaking. I have plans to re-read all of this awesomeness again as soon as I’m finished writing this gushing review!After the a [...]


    11. 4 Stars!Loved this one! Love Kale and how everything was new to him. How he stared at Dez! Swoon! He cracked me up too! Dez is one tough girl! Loved her too!Full of action and had me on the edge of my seat a few times. Can't wait for more!


    12. His eyes were beautiful - ice blue and intense - and I found it hard to look away.Oh fuck me Insta-love on the first few pages of this book!Unbelievable. At first, I thought it had potential, because I sort of (and I really mean the sort of) like the female character Dez short for Deznee or something. She was spunky. I liked that, but when I read further her spunkiness got a little too much that it became really annoying. Another thing, when she said those words up there she lost me that was abo [...]


    13. Touch Review on K-BooksI didn't really know what I expected when I started this book but if definitely wasn't that. Wow. I really enjoyed this book. I definitely didn't expect it to be so action-packed and I was pleasantly surprised with this book.Dez has always believed her father was a lawyer, since her mother died giving birth to her, her and her father have never been close and she will do anything to piss him off. But then Dez meets Kale, the strange boy who seems to know nothing of the wor [...]



    14. 4.5 starsThis was such a great debut!Touch is filled with action, intrigue, excitement and such tenderness that I never expected.Dez is my kind of girl, she's a rebel, an adrenaline junkie, tom-boyish through and through and has some great sass. She was very easy to connect with, maybe it was just how she saw things or maybe it was the way she talked but I found myself really enjoying her from minute one. But Kale is what owned this book for me.He has this incredible vulnerable side that you jus [...]


    15. 3.5 stars I'm going to keep this review short. To begin with the story includes of various individuals with different powers and their fight against an institution that wants to use them allYes, a very used plot but wait a second there is a really sweet hero who falls for a girl who is "special". OK sorry this does sound all familiar, but it's because it works and that is the reason I gave this book 3.5 stars. All books will have something or everything you have heard or read about although the [...]


    16. Touch (Denazen # 1) by Jus AccardoThis is the first book I’ve read by Jus Accardo and I have to say that I am so glad that I had the chance to read it. Jus writing is excellent this story started off with a bang, the plot is great, character development excellent and all I can say is Jus Accardo has me hooked into the Denazen Series. This story is easy to read, fast paced and I couldn’t stop reading it till I was at the end.We meet Dez, who is leaving a party and cuts through the woods, tryi [...]


    17. After only hearing good things about Touch, I decided to give it a shot and hope for the best.It. Blew. Me. Away.In the heart-stopping-can't-put-this-book-down-what's-sleep? kind of way. And I'm calling it, this will make one of my top 2011 books easily.Reasons to Read:1. Stand Out Characters:Kale and Dez completely caught me off guard as characters, and I love them for it. They're nothing like I expected, and break out of the common YA-protag mold. Dez has her own distinct voice and sassy attit [...]


    18. "TOUCH" BY JUS ACCARDOAmazing! This book, start to finish was one of the finest pieces of young adult genre literature that I have had the honor of reading in quite some time. To be quite honest I have been constantly disappointed in some of the more popular writers abilities at conveying the truth of teenage emotion. A lot of times the realities of how they would act in certain situations, the moods that are so viable at this time in their lives were never really shown as if the author had a di [...]


    19. If you are a fan of X-Men or Heroes, then you are going to love Touch by Jus Accardo!Touch brought out so many emotions in me while reading it. I finished reading it in one sitting and loved everything about it. Putting it down was not an option for me. I couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen next, and how it ended. The characters were super funny, especially Dez. Her life was completely turned upside down by bringing a stranger home as a joke to her father. By doing that she open [...]


    20. WOW, my adrenaline is pumping right now. You know how in books the character usually says, “I let out a breath I didn’t know I was holding”? Well, I couldn’t breathe the last half of this book. My muscles were tense and my heart was pounding. I’m so impressed with TOUCH. I was hooked from chapter one. And the cover?! I can’t stop staring at it.Dez is not your typical girl. She’s hardcore. She lives for moments of adrenaline rushes and freedom. Underneath her tough exterior though, [...]



    21. Touch was one of those books that once you started reading it you ignored everything in order to finish reading it. Jus has this way of weaving a few stories into one that captures you from the beginning. Dez is not your ordinary girl. She does some outrageous things like dare devil skate boarding, jumping from a building, train scaling. She hangs with her cousin Brandt and drinks and does whatever she can to irritate her father. She does most of this to get her father's attention. Ever since he [...]


    22. December 24, 2011, 4:42 pm - Somewhere over the Pacific: In Which I Decided Not to Finish Reading Touch.Technically speaking, this book was written flawlessly that it deserved a five star rating. But because I’m an emotional reader, the character’s actions and how he or she made me feel are usually directly proportionate to how I rate a book. I’m seething and I haven’t even finished reading. It’s very unfortunate because this book had me entranced right up until the dreaded love triang [...]


    23. My father was always evil. I knew it from the day I was born. He was always so empty, so cold! We were never able to have that regular father-daughter relationship. Plus, mumsy is gone. I'm so sad. (In a bid for attention, I do all sorts of crazy things like jumping off a 15 meter barn into a swimming pool. Notice me daddy dearest! I still long for your attention even though you are totally evil.) Ohh! A boy with cut feet who came out of nowhere. Better yet, he's HOT. (You're being chased by sus [...]


    24. ***3.5 star***This was surprisingly an interesting read. I wasn't expecting much considering lately almost all the books I've picked up have ended up being either DNF or boring. This made me want to continue. So, that gets a star in my book!! ;)Story overall is not an earth shattering new concept. Evil corporation disguised under a pseudonym. Teens with "special" abilities being kidnapped, held captive, brainwashed/tested on etc. MC clueless of what father "really" does for a living. Of course, [...]


    25. I devoured this book in a single night, refusing to put it down. I instantly connected with the story and characters. When we meet Dez, our main character, she's kind of floating through life, no plans, no goals except one do whatever she can to piss of her dad. She has it down to a science. Enter Kale. I love the way he is written. Kale literally runs into Dez while she's on her way home and he demands her shoes. Kale is a Six, and I won't spill what that means here, but think x-men. He's been [...]


    26. Touch was an action packed book. With very strong characters. That you will like from that start. When you are asked for your shoes from a stange boy, wouldn’t you wonder “What the heck”????After Deznee is introduced to Kale in the most crazy way, she learns that he is on the run. She decides this is the ‘perfect’ way to make her dad furious. Bring home a stranger, would do just that. Plus more than she could have ever imagined.Deznee’s dad has more secrets than she could have ever i [...]


    27. I loved Touch by Jus Accardo! I read it in one day and then passed it along to one of my reviewers. I like it because it's a fresh YA paranormal. It seems like I'm seeing a lot of the same in paranormal lately and I was very happy to have got my hands on a unique story. And, Kale? Oh, I love him. He's been added to my list of fictional boyfriends. :D


    28. 4.5 StarsDisturbing and lovely, Touch by Jus Accardo will leave your heart pounding as the race to live begins. Jus Accardo's unique voice fights its way through the melee that is young adult fiction, braving the streets of fantasy and holding its own amongst the high rollers and big dreamers.A novel that is real and rough as much as it is sweet and emotional, Touch is the story of a girl who wants nothing more than to piss off her father--an emotionally distant man who doesn't seem to care much [...]
