ARC Review: To Touch You – Bella J

Rating: 3 out of 5.


I wasn’t supposed to kiss a stranger. But I did.
I definitely wasn’t supposed to like it. But I did.
And now I’m all caught up in the excitement of it.
The thrill and the anticipation of experiencing it again…with him.

Noah Alexander.

But there’s a whole list of reasons I should stay away from him,

One – he works for my father.
Two – he’s much older than I am.
Three – he told me to.

Yet there’s only one reason I shouldn’t… because I don’t want to.

I’m addicted to the fire that burns between us whenever we’re close. I’m addicted to the way he looks at me as if he desires and hates me at the same time. Call me a masochist, but the sound of his voice when he tells me all the things he wants to do to me right before he asks me to leave—it’s thrilling.

No matter how many times he warns that he’ll hurt me, I can’t stay away.

I won’t.


To Touch You by Bella J is a high intensity, highly emotional and incredibly drama-filled story about a young woman and the older man she falls for. This is my first book by this author and I found the fast pacing and constant action good for anyone who wants to be kept on their toes. The pacing also made this a quick read to get through.

While I found I enjoyed the storyline, I’ll admit I did struggle with the individual characters (both main and side). I just couldn’t really connect to any of them or understand their behaviours and attitudes. That being said, I’ve read many other reviews where readers have absolutely loved the characters so I definitely think I’m in the minority with this opinion – and that’s okay, each to their own.

I don’t want to mention any specific plot points so all I’ll add is that I recommend this book to anyone who loves high drama in their stories or wants to give an age gap story a try. Overall, an interesting read that’ll keep you on your toes.
