Touched By You by Summer Evans

Publication date: July 1st 2017

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Rose Thorne had a perfect life. Beautiful. Fun. Vivacious. She had the perfect husband. And the perfect sprawling mansion in the poshest part of town. Until a perfectly viperous size three in heels walked past her Adonis of a husband and left her as sad and pathetically broken as an old country tune. After months of sobbing over her broken life Rose is learning that maybe “perfect” isn’t all it’s cracked up to be anyway. More than ready to get her groove back Rose joins her best friend’s gym. She’s bound and determined to learn to live again. And to be the awesome person she knows she still is. That’s where she meets her panty melting, personal trainer, Jackson Moore.

Jackson is used to women throwing themselves at him. He’s fit. Tall. Smart. And has a smile that could charm the panties off a saint. Rose Thorne is like no one he’s ever met. She’s brash. Hilarious as hell. She’s also a very voluptuous size sixteen. But there’s something about the saucy woman that sparks his imagination. Jackson is a good time guy, he loves women, he loves sex. Relationships are for pansy-ass losers. He’s got aspirations, goals, and a secret. A big one. One that prevents him from letting any woman too close. But Rose makes him want to throw his rules out the window. She makes him want to open up. She makes him want…everything.

~Description~

When Chicago real estate tycoon Harvey Zale pings a “friend of a friend” with a flirtatious text, he never expects to start an addictive sexting affair with a complete stranger. He’s a billionaire who can get any woman he wants, but he can’t have her—his mysterious, sultry Contessa, who inspires his nightly confessions and soothes more than just his conscience from the consequences of his own shallow ambitions.

He’s determined to build the tallest towers in the world and he needs to sell his Chicago riverfront property to finance it. But when Alma Castillo, the Lara Croft of antique hunters, shows up on his land, claiming the existence of a priceless Tiffany stained-glass window and doing everything in her power to muck up his deal, he knows he’s got more than a stray cat to collar and tame. She’s not only on a mission to save long-lost antiques; she’s also on a personal crusade to hate his guts.

He would know. She served him divorce papers a year ago, just to prove it.

And he’d care a helluva lot more if his ex-wife’s sassy tongue and wicked intelligence didn’t turn him on every time she called him “a**hole” and if she didn’t look so damn cute in those baggy overalls, disguising her affinity for being naughty as much as being nice.

Perhaps even as naughty as his Contessa, who unlike Alma, doesn’t know anything about his real identity or flawed, billionaire reputation, which flames his desires to escalate their fantasy relationship into the reality of one scorching night of mindblowing…

If he could just get his mind off his ex-wife—the only woman he’s ever truly loved. God, woman…if she would just let him pleasure her scornful frown and turn it oh, oh, oooohhhh so upside down, maybe he could convince her to marry him again.

But no one ever said it was easy being a greedy opportunistic billionaire bastard, especially one who happens to know there’s nothing better than make-up sex with an ex…

Please note that all of Ms. Hawthorne’s billionaire romances are stand-alone novels set in Chicago with minor subplots and secondary characters that intersect, but each book can be read and enjoyed in any order.

~Review~

*a copy was provided via Netgalley*

First off, I looove the cover. ^-^

I wasn’t sure what to expect at first.. but from the title (Ex’s – A Second Chance Billionaire Romance) I could kind of guess.  It is funny, emotional and sexy. This is the first time I am reading a book by Aria Hawthorne and I am glad I did.

Alma & Harvey are the main characters, they were previously married for almost five years before they divorced. I thought Harvey and Alma had great chemistry and enjoyed this story thoroughly.  The writing just came alive with their chemistry. I don’t know who I loved more – Aria with her stubborn intelligence or Harvey with his cockiness and humor.

Alma is a preservationist who loves and specializes in stained glass windows. She is hired to make a determination on whether a building is historical and needs preserved or allowed to be torn down by none other than her ex-husband, Harvey, ahhhh sooo awkward! haha!  They end up on a treasure hunt but, what they discover throughout their journey is so much more than what they expected. A year after her divorce, she’s stooped to sexting a mysterious man…which actually may be the best thing going in her life. This guy has to be better than her ex, even though he’s a rich powerful ass.

Harvey’s flirty, funny, sexy and sweet. Harvey isn’t like the typical alpha billionaires usually seen in romance books, which is what I loved the most.He is human with his flaws, but not without his cockiness 😉 He has a great sense of humor and I loved his witty conversations with Alma! When he loved he gave it his all, without giving up.He’s a billionaire architect in the process of demolishing an old train depot. has lost his flair for finding treasures in the rough and fixing them up with Alma’s help. It became more about the money to him, which Alma couldn’t get behind.

To be honest, there were a few parts that I felt were unrealistic; when Alma first talked on the phone with the “mysterious guy” (who’s actually Harvey, her ex husband…) she’s been texting. They did in fact see each other the same day.. In real life people’s voices don’t necessarily sound different on the phone.. sooo just really unrealistic…like how the heck did they not recognize each other’s voices!? :c  Also,wondering why Alma couldn’t tell it wasn’t him in the first place?.. I mean, Harvey is a billionaire, and he told her and made her know that when they were texting. How many billionaires are in their city, jeeeez. And visa versa, Harvey not noticing this “mystery girl” (Alma), acting exactly as Alma would.  🤔🤔🤔🤔

Overall, kinda annoying at times, but It’s an enjoyable story. This is the first book by this author but I will defiantly her give her books another try! I recommend it!

Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance

Synopsis:

Tess used to spend more hours than she’d care to admit playing her favorite computer game, using the nickname Angel. She could pretend her life was different, and she could pretend Arion was just a friend. But a girl needs more to keep her warm at night than pixels and she traded her virtual heaven for a real life hell. Now she’s on the run from a past she won’t talk about, and the only place she has to go is the doorstep of the friend she’s never actually met.

When Angel disappeared from their nightly games, it nearly destroyed Arion. He threw himself into work and women, but he can’t help knowing the one night stands will never compare to the angel who haunts his dreams. At first, when she shows up soaking wet and scared-shitless on his doorstep, he thinks his prayers have been answered.

But the more Arion tries to keep Angel close, the more her fear drives her away. If they are ever going to have a chance for a future, they’ll first have to deal with the past that hasn’t forgotten her any more than she’s forgotten it, and Arion will have to learn how to let her go.

Review:

I really enjoyed No One’s Angel. I loved how the book jumps right into the story. I loved Arion he was so open, caring and patient with Angel. She is so broken and scared when she shows up at Arion’s place but he takes things slow with her and lets her take the lead in everything they do together, slowly giving her back the power that she has lost. There were a few times that Arion did get on my nerves. When Angel decided it was time to deal with her past by herself, he became so needy and a little whiny. The first time it was cute and sad but then by the third time it was just annoying. He needed to man up and get over it. Besides the building romance between Angel and Arion, there was mystery and action to the story that was tied to Angels past. . No One’s Angel was a fast paced book that never had a boring moment that I think everyone will enjoy. 

Overall I enjoyed immensely. Axel/Arion wants nothing more than to fix the broken girl he fell in love with over a computer game. While Tess/Angel doesn’t want someone else to fix her, she wants to do it herself.

I would definitely recommend this novel!
