Dangerous to Touch Review

Dangerous to Touch is Jill Sorenson's debut for the Silhouette Romantic Suspense line, and let me tell you, it's hot, hot, hot! Heat level is highly sensual, and you feel it all the way through the book my friends!

Sidney Morrow opens the book by getting a psychic reading off of a lost and angry dog. I thought it was brilliant to show her power, one might say, with an animal, rather than an awkward handshake or some such thing. It's so natural to lean in and touch a dog that's in pain, and when she does, she gets a flood of emotion and information. That's when we know that Sidney feels other people's (or animal's) memories from a touch. And because it's a dog... she doesn't know really how to communicate this to the authorities. There's been a murder. The dog knows what happened. She can't very well just waltz into police headquarters and say that the dog told her, especially not to Lt. Marc Cruz who is skeptical to say the least. In fact, before the book is over Sidney is more suspect than informant.

But, let's just say that the important thing is she doesn't go unnoticed by Marc. Did I mention this is a sensual book? It's a really fun book to read and I don't want to give away much more of the plot, since it is suspense. Enjoy!!

If you like this book, I'd also like to suggest: Protecting His Witness by Marie Ferrarella and anything by Janet Evanovich, but especially the first four Plum novels.

Good job, Robin! Now the title makes double-sense to me.

Thanks for taking the time to read and review my book, Robin. I'm glad you enjoyed it! My editor at Harlequin said the same thing (hot, hot, hot) so that part made me smile.

Touching an animal to get the psychic impression...that's kind of cool.
