If we follow the laws of the Brothers, our sins will be forgiven, and they will take us with them to The Promised Land. All I have been taught is that I’m bad, shameful and a whore.
But, in the deepest part of my heart I can’t help but wonder about life. Is the way of The Order really the only way?
I listen to the teachings. I watch my sisters as they dutifully do what they’re told.
With every passing day I can feel my faith slipping away. How can I believe in something that feels so wrong? I feel like an outsider.
I feel like I don’t belong anywhere until I meet Liam. The first man to show me what love is turns out to be just like the rest of them.
I’m done putting my faith in men. I’ll save myself. LIAM Cults – I have this intense hunger for revenge against them.
Because of them, my sister took her own life.
Instead of getting my revenge, I get Mila. She changes things. But when I begin to unravel the secrets of her past that revenge comes back. I can’t forgive her for belonging to a cult. I blame her.
There’s only one problem, somehow that love I felt for her is coming back and my hate is turning to lust.
In the end I’m the one who needs saving.
My rating: 4 of 5 starsI have to admit that I haven’t been so confused and left with mixed emotions as I’m now, 100 % done with Touch of Lust.This book had me go through a whole range of emotions from anger to love. I loved the characters and I hated them for how they treated each other and themselves. I grieved for and with them and smiled through my tears when they were happy.
Michelle Horst has written a novel that tastes like real life, everything from sweet to bitter. That is the reason I loved this book because just like in real life, the characters make stupid choices thinking they know what is best for others. And they’re full of contradictions; they feel the pull and still turn away, they’re told they are nothing and still they are confident enough to fight for their happiness, they’ve learned not to trust anyone and still they open their hearts to the one they love. And although not all have a happy ending and some of that life-long guilt will always be there, they have strength to carry on, never giving up on life.
This is the story of Mila and Liam. A story of survival, persistence, hope and love.
My first instinct is to cover myself, but the scorching look in his eyes makes me stand still.
My conscience screams at me that this is wrong, but it’s quickly silenced by the sinner in me.
“Don’t look at me like I’m your ticket to the promised land, babe. I’ll only lead you to hell.”
Heat spreads through my body and tiny tongues of desire lick at my skin.
“You make me want to be a bad girl,” I whisper. My voice is hoarse with sinful need.
I want to feel his touch. I want to be defiled by him.
