Product Description

People keep dying around Harper MacLain. Try as she might, she can’t stop bad things from happening to those she loves. When her closely guarded secret lands her in the middle of her ex-boyfriend’s investigation, she’s in over her head. She hates that Detective Lucas Sullivan is in her life again, tempting her to fall back into bad habits...and his bed.

When Harper left him, Lucas tried not to care, burying himself in his job instead. Then Harper became the job. Now they’re on the run, and all he can think about is keeping her safe...and his hands off her. Lucas knows she's the key to solving his case, if he can keep them alive long enough to do it. And that's the trick...because falling in love can kill you.

Each book in the An Unlikely Hero series is a standalone, full length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Although I've just started reading this type of suspense/romance drama novel, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed Tempted by a Touch by Kris Rafferty. Her storyline kept me guessing on who was dirty/clean, but I liked the underlining romance between H/h (Lucas/Harper) and the fact that I never questioned their love and loyalty to each other. Some frustrating bits here and there waiting for resolutions to some of the issues, but I think the author had a good sense of timing and answered the looming questions in my head before I gave up! No cliffhangers with the main H/h and they get a satisfying HEA. Well written enough for me to want to read more of Kris Rafferty's work. I received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book and can't wait for more!!! 25 October 2016
By Nikki Brooks - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I didn't realise that this was the 2nd book in an arc but I really enjoyed it and didn't feel too much out of the loop as there was enough recap within to wrap my head around.

Harper has had a tough year or so. She lost her sister-in-law, dumped her boyfriend, returned to her hometown and had to watch as someone she regarded as a friend ripped her family apart from the inside. But more than that she has to deal with the fact that she may have been instrumental in giving information to the traitor.

Lucas Sullivan is a good cop, it's all he knows but when he realised that his job would always come between him and Harper, he faltered. But when Harper dumped him, like a little lamb he followed her to NH, just so he could keep an eye on her. Now she is in the sights of the architect of an elaborate scheme, involving crooked cops, and she may no longer be safe. Lucas however knows where she will be safe, with him!!

I loved the fact that even though she was enmeshed in a family of cops, Lucas decided she couldn't handle being a cops wife - what an idiot! But thankfully Harper is made of sterner stuff and she eventually makes her point. That said Harper had her share of the blame to shoulder by deciding to run before Lucas eventually left her, even though he had no plans on doing any such thing. COMMUNICATION people LOL! Strong story, engaging characters and I can't wait for more. I'm going to go find book 1 and get caught up!!

*I received a copy of Tempted by a Touch via Net Galley in exchange for a voluntary review of this book**

Tempted By a Touch is book two of the Unlikely Hero series by Kris Rafferty. I highly recommend reading the first book, Betrayed by a Kiss before diving into this book as it begins where the other one left off. This book focuses on Harper Mac Lain and Lucas Sullivan, I give the book 4.9 stars and there is a hint of who the next book will be about at the end.

Harper Mac Lain is starting to wonder why people die around her family but her biggest regret is breaking up with Lucas. But he follows her to Manchester, he hopes for a reconciliation but first they have to get beyond the interview with Joe Folsom. He's asked to speak with Harper only before giving up information that could bring down alot of people within the police department. What happens next will lead the reader on a wild ride with a kidnapping, finding the coveted journal in an unlikely place, a revelation of a secret Hayden has kept from her family and Lucas and finally a hint of Lucas and Harper's possible happily ever after.

Detective Lucas Sullivan realizes that he still has feelings for Hayden but his fear is that he will end up like his late father who put his job as a cop before his family. He fears that taking Hayden to speak to Joe Folsom will lead to her being in danger, because whomever is on the list will do anything to have it disappear. When Hayden's life is in danger, he will do anything to keep her safe even if it means his own life is in danger.

Tempted By a Touch is a non-stop action packed book that will tie up some loose ends from the previous book but will also shed light on the next book.

This time, we see Dane’s sister, Harper and Lucas. We saw a bit of Harper in the previous book, and like two seconds of Lucas. So, it was interesting to see them again and finally hear what happened between them in the past.

Here, Harper has the worst of luck. She just keeps getting pulled into this bad-guy business situation and all she wants is have a normal life as a teacher. I truly felt for her, but at the same time, she was really careless with her safety. Also, there was a secret she was trying by all means to hide, and in the end, I didn’t find it that bad. I felt she made this huge thing in her head, when it was much simpler. It was annoying at times.

As for Lucas, well, he was a good guy, although not a fan on how he was constantly grabbing Harper to take her here and there. A bit rough, imo. I liked him but, like Harper, he had a few things holding him back that I felt were not that bad either (Harper was the daughter of a cop, she knew the drill).

I don’t know, I liked the action and twists here and there, but I was not that convinced with these two. I felt they were much more dramatic than was necessary.

The ending is rather open and from the way it is set, the next book sounds awesome (if there is another book).

*Thank you to Entangled Publishing for providing an ARC in exchange of my honest opinion*
