The Time Will Come #7

Every Thursday, Jodie at Books For Company hosts The Time Will Come, a weekly meme in which we list a book that we really want to read or keep meaning to get to. These are mostly books that have been on the TBR shelf for awhile now but also they can be books that have just come into my home.

If you'd like to join in?

  • Pick a book you have been meaning to read
  • Do a post telling us about the book
  • Link the post up in the linky on Jodie's blog.
  • Visit the other blogs!
Here is my choice for this weeks Time Will Come:

Touch (Denazen #1) by Jus Accardo

Goodreads Synopsis:
When a strange boy tumbles down a river embankment and lands at her feet, seventeen-year-old adrenaline junkie Deznee Cross snatches the opportunity to piss off her father by bringing the mysterious hottie with ice blue eyes home.

Except, there's something off with Kale. He wears her shoes in the shower, is overly fascinated with things like DVDs and vases, and acts like she'll turn to dust if he touches her. It's not until Dez's father shows up, wielding a gun and knowing more about Kale than he should, that Dez realizes there's more to this boy and her father's law firm than she realized.

Kale has been a prisoner of Denazen Corporation, an organization devoted to collecting the Afflicted and using them as weapons his entire life. And, oh yeah, his touch? It kills. The two team up with a group of rogue Afflicted hell bent on taking down Denazen before they're caught and her father discovers the biggest secret of all. A secret Dez has spent her life keeping safe.

A secret Kale will kill to protect.

My friend Dani at Pen To Paper recommended this book to me as she had been given a copy of this book to review.  I trust Dani's opinion as we have very similar reading tastes.  I really enjoyed reading Dani's Author Interview with Jus Accardo.  When Dani told to me that this book had been released for the kindle on Amazon, well, I just had to get a copy.  I really like the sound of the story and it sounds just my kind of book.  I'm really looking forward to getting round to reading this soon :D

I'm really glad that you're looking forward to this one! Jus is a lovely lady and I recommend reading the interview with her, she gave some fantastic answers to my questions!
Touch is £4.43 on Amazon UK - unfortunately it looks as though it's not in paperback in the UK at the moment though.
Julie - it's a fantastic read - you should go for it :)

Thanks for spreading the word Jen! :D I know Jus will appreciate it!! xxx
