From Back Of The Book:

He’s just about ready to explode…

Jarvis Swain is fast turning into a hate machine, and if that happens, the whole world is doomed. Unless he can get Death’s sexy assistant Reina Fleming to help him…

She’s in desperate need of a badass warrior on a mission…

When Death presents Reina with a dreadful ultimatum, Reina knows she needs to call in someone ruthless, powerful, and confident…

Jarvis Swain is the warrior Reina needs at her back, and she’s got the magic touch that ameliorates his dark side. But the two of them together are one heck of a volatile combination…

My Review:

Touch If You Dare is book two in the Soulfire Series. I have not read the first book, but I didn’t feel that I needed to in order to enjoy this one. Stephanie Rowe did a good job of explaining things for the new reader to the series, but not so much that established readers of the series would get bored.

I thoroughly enjoyed the characters in this book and plan on getting book one just so I can read more about them. This book was about Jarvis and Reina, but I love Death. What a mixed up man! He is in the business of death and guiding people to the afterlife, but worships love. His house has paintings of Cupid. His logo is interlocking hearts. And he wears PINK in his bedroom! So conflicted. I love it. I hope Death gets his own book in this series.

Jarvis is the Guardian of Hate and his younger brother is the Guardian of Love. Jarvis learns by the end of the book that love and hate are two sides of the same coin and that no one can live without the other. He also learns that not all women are out to torture him.

Reina wants to save her sister, but in order to do that she needs Death to promote her to Reaper. She discovers that she truly is not the killer that she needs to be in order to get that promotion. But Jarvis is and he is willing to help her, only because her touch keeps the darkness of Hate away.

I give Touch If You Dare a 4 Horseshoe rating.

Touch If You Dare is available from Amazon in Print and Kindle editions. Also from Barnes And Noble in Print and Nook editions.
