Blog Tour and Review: Touch Me Not by Apryl Baker

A past tragedy has left Lily Holmes burdened with a devastating secret…

Since the death of her twin sister, Lily can’t bear to be touched. Not accidentally, not casually…and certainly not intimately. This makes it impossible for her to confess to her best friend Adam Roberts that she’s in love with him. She can’t give him the sort of relationship he needs, so she watches in silence while he plans his wedding with someone else.

Enter Nikoli Kinkaid, the campus manwhore…

Nikoli is a self-proclaimed connoisseur of women, and he wants to add Lily to his list of conquests, but she wants nothing to do with him—until he makes her an offer she can’t refuse. He’ll teach her to enjoy human contact again, giving her a chance to win over Adam, while Nikoli uses all his considerable charm to seduce her.

But Lily raises the stakes…

Lily loves cars. Her late father was a racer, and she grew up under the hood of a car and on the racetrack. Nikoli has a limited edition 1970 Plymouth Barracuda she covets, so she informs him the terms of their deal also require he not sleep with anyone for six months. If he does, she’ll win the car. If she surrenders and ends up in his bed, his beloved ’Cuda is his to keep.

In an intricate dance of control and surrender, a reluctant friendship becomes something more. Lily begins to crave things she never believed she could, and Nikoli realizes there is more at stake than his reputation.

If Lily overcomes her phobia, will she crave Adam’s touch as she’s starting to crave Nikoli’s? Or will she only find pleasure from the touch of a semi-reformed manwhore?

My Review

I received an ARC copy in exchange of an honest review

Touch Me Not was an incredible, hilarious and sexy ride...

Is like the whole bad boy/good girl cliche but 100% better, adding the fact that the heroine has a phobia, that she doesn't like to be touched... You get intrigued.

This book, amazed me and I have to tell you that I was into Nikoli in the first page. He was really sexy and this guy with his manwhorish manners made me laugh all the time, and the fact that he hated the word... Yeah, it was really funny to see. He was a good bad boy cliche and so adorable at the same time, also we can't leave behind his dominant side, because to be honest those parts were something I really enjoyed.
And the fact that he was half Russian and he was always calling Lily dushka... And his dirty mouth, well he had me at that (maybe I have a weakness with Russian guys in books *wink) so was a win-win with the whole book.

With Lily, this girl was so cool and a refreshing character, because sometimes the good girl who falls in love with the bad boy is naïve or all about hearts and flowers that it gets old, (don't get me wrong, I enjoy that sometimes but, you know what I mean, right?) read about it so many times. 
And this time Lily was someone I really enjoyed to read, and it was cool that she knew a lot about gaming and cars that added an interesting side to her personality.

So you have the bad boy + good girl formula and you add the fact that the good girl has a phobia to be touched. Yes. You have a good book in your hands, nothing was rush and it wasn't all about instalove... You will find that the author took her time to build everything and create a good storyline.

In the last chapters, the miscommunication was a little annoying but yes, it played really good and Nik was so sweet when he declared his love to Lily, that all I could do was jump of excitement.

I absolutely enjoyed this book, and I can assure you that Apryl did an amazing job, and this book have now a special place in my Shelves, what are you waiting for to add it?

So who am I? Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.

Growing up in a small town, I learned a lot of values and morals, I also learned parents have spies everywhere and there’s always someone to tell your mama you were seen kissing a particular boy on a particular day just a little too long. So when you get grounded, what is there left to do? Read! My Aunt Jo gave me my first real romance novel. It was a romance titled “Lord Margrave’s Deception.” I remember it fondly. But I also learned I had a deep and abiding love of mysteries and anything paranormal. As I grew up, I started to write just that and would entertain my friends with stories featuring them as main characters.

Now, I live Huntersville, NC where I entertain my niece and nephew and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of reach. The cats start yelling something fierce…lol.

I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.
