Hey world remember me?! I’m back! and I finished a new book! Well new to me one anyways. This is the second book in the fallen ladies series by Amy Sandas her first book Luck is no lady was amazing and I loved it so hard. Sex on a card table? yes please!. That book was main reason I went to get this one, the Untouchable Earl had a very interesting story line.
Here’s the deal our hero. Avenell, The Earl of Harte. I loved his name by the way. cannot be touched. literally it causes the man pain. So he avoids being touched at all costs. Now this is interested because he goes to a brothel to learn how to tolerate touching other people and being touched causally. He knows one day he will have to marry to he is basically taking one for the team.
Our Heroine Lily on the hand wants adventure and passion like in the erotic novels she reads and is all for becoming the earls mistress.
The good. it was interesting story line with a very damaged hero, who basically fought himself and his past to be with the girl who wouldn’t give up on him.
The not so good. This book picks up basically in the first one, toward the end so if you haven’t read Luck is no lady then you are going to be slightly confused. I found that annoying. I also didn’t like how the Earl wanted Lily to only calling him “my lord” like really buddy? keeping it cold and causal not sexy. Also this book came off very tense for me and I was hoping for more a sexy feel. I didn’t get it.
Sadly this book for ally my high hopes fell flat for me. But never fear there are somethings you might like!
Virgin hero, oh yes that’s right our hero was a virgin which I was like “oh, hell yes!” I loved it! Damaged hero! don’t we all just love man who damaged and broken in some way? Like Boy I am going to fix you! The Earl not only has a physical affliction but he also has the unloved/unwanted son thing going because of it. So he basically feels worthless (naturally Lily fixes that)
Bondage! He doesn’t like to be touched right? so what happens when our heronie can’t control herself and touches him after he told her not to? he ties her hands up of course. it was a very nice and very surprising twist.
Before I wrap this up let me just the cover is amazing! Sexy and just all around hot. I gave the book 3 stars on good reads but sadly it did fall short I didn’t feel for either character and was thrown off by the interlocking story line. Also I love a good broody man and hero but really The earl was bit of an asshole at times, which made me almost put the book down.
