Paranormal Romance Review & Contest: TOUCH IF YOU DARE by Stephanie Rowe

Time for some snarky, funny paranormal romance today as we look at Touch If You Dare, a new book by Stephanie Rowe—or, as Publisher’s Weekly reviews called it, “paranormal romance adventure comedy.”
THE OFFICIAL BLURB: He’s just about the hottest warrior she’s ever seen…Reina Fleming really appreciates a man who’s on a mission-especially when he’s a badass warrior doing his best to impress her. And Jarvis is charmed by the way Reina’s magic touch can soothe his dark side. But when Jarvis’s attention puts her job, her home, and her family in danger, Reina has to decide whether love is worth the price…

MY THOUGHTS: Reina is an assistant to Death (and boy is he a pain to work with), given a next-to-impossible assignment whose completion is the only way she’ll be able to save her sister. Jarvis is one hot boiling mass of hate—literally Hate personified, although he tries to keep it under control. He, too, has a sibling in trouble, his brother Cam, who personifies Love. They have the inevitable Undeniable Attraction between them, but it’s really, really inconvenient considering the jobs they need to do. 

            I thought Touch If You Dare was a good, fun read. The humor is actually humorous—which isn’t always the case because humor’s really hard to write—but here, it works. The madcap nature of the story goes into hyperdrive a couple of times and I wanted it to calm down but overall it’s a fun read with a tuxedo-wearing Death that will have you laughing out loud. And it’s no coincidence that J.R. Ward blurbs Stephanie Rowe’s writing—if ever there was a tortured alpha male in the vein of Zhadist, it’s Jarvis—although he’s more funny than intense so don’t expect to want to save him in the way we all want to save Zhadist 🙂

  5. This book sounds really good – I’m always looking for new UF & PR authors.

    As much as I felt for Zsadist, I’d still pick Wrath every time.
