**Touch Me 1 is a novella. It is the first installment of an ongoing new adult paranormal romance serial filled with twists, turns, and dark surprises. Each episode ranges between 14,000 to 20,000 words long (approximately 40-80 pages).**
**Due to strong language and some sexual situations in this and later installments of the series, it is appropriate for readers 17+.**
Touch Me was a very interesting novella! When I first read the description for it I knew it was right up my alley. When the story starts, it jumps right into the action. We are immediately pulled into the story where Caitlin and her friend are about to go into a nightclub. What I really liked was that Caitlin is completely unaware of what is about to happen to her, meaning we are witnessing the first time something out of the ordinary happens to her. It also means that since she has no idea what is happening to her so, we get to figure it out with her. I absolutely loved that element of it.
The characters in the story were also great. Caitlin seems like a super nice girl who likes to blend in. She hasn't had the best upbringing which makes her very withdrawn and inverted. We don't get the full story of her childhood in this short novella, but it definitely provided enough where we could understand the gist. We only get a few chances to get to know her best friend, but she seems like the type of person to always have Caitlin's back. Amar is very elusive. He obviously knows what is going on with Caitlin, but he also seems to not want to get involved. We can definitely tell that there is more to the whole story than he is willing to confess.
I felt that this novella was a really nice beginning. Key word: beginning. We are just being introduced to the story line and characters so, there really wasn't a lot to judge. So far the story was great, but again it's only introductions which is why I have to give the novella three stars. I really liked it, but nothing happened to wow me. I do have a feeling that the novellas to come are going to be great, and I also really think I will end up loving this series.
I really enjoyed the story. I knew from the description that this was a great pick for me. I love the paranormal elements, the suspense, the unknown, and the smut lol. Caitlin seems like a great main character and I can't wait to learn more. Since this was just the first novella in the series, and only 50 pages, you don't get to learn a whole lot. It's the intro to the series so, I have to give it only three stars. I really liked it, I highly recommend it, but there just wasn't enough there to wow me. I have high expectations for the installments to come and I have a good feeling I will really enjoy them.
