WHAT THE BACK OF THE BOOK SAYS: Remy O'Malley heals people with touch - but ever injury she cures becomes her own. Living in a household with an abusive father, she has healed untold numbers of broken bones, burns, and bruises. And then one night her stepfather goes too far.
Being sent to live with her estranged father offers a clean start and she is eager to take it. Enter Asher Blackwell. Once a Protector of Healers, Asher sacrificed his senses to become immortal. Only by killing a Healer can a Protector recover their human senses. Falling in love is against the rules between these two enemies. Because Remy has the power to make Protectors human again, and when they find out, they'll be coming for her - if Asher doesn't kill her first.
This is book one in the Touched trilogy.
MY THOUGHTS: A pretty unique concept, and not one overburdening the YA market right now. I'm really curious to see how the relationship between Remy and Asher is going to play out -- sounds like it could get pretty messy!!
