Eden didn't expect Az. 

Not his saunter down the beach toward her. Not his unbelievable pick-up line. Not the instant, undeniable connection. And not his wings. 


So long, happily-ever-after. 

Now trapped between life and death, cursed to spread chaos with her every touch, Eden could be the key in the eternal struggle between heaven and hell. All because she gave her heart to one of the Fallen, an angel cast out of heaven. 

She may lose everything she ever had. She may be betrayed by those she loves most. But Eden will not be a pawn in anyone else's game. Her heart is her own. 

And that's only the beginning of the end. 

I had a hard time getting into A TOUCH MORTAL. I found myself wanting to put it down or skip sections throughout most of the book. It was a bit confusing at times and there are a lot of names to keep track of that are kinda just thrown into it without enough explanation. I enjoyed the main characters personalities and the storyline was unique. There is a lot of action towards the end which was nice, but the first half of the book seamed to drag and drag. I also wasn't crazy about the ending, I felt there was still a lot left undone which left me unsatisfied. I'm at a loss of anything else to say It just wasn't for me I guess. I dont think I will continue the series at this point but I will check out the blurb for book 2 when it comes out.

I gave it 2.5/5 stars
