My thoughts:

This is one hard book to describe because so much is going on and it's crazy in a good way. But first, yes this is book two but it can be read as a stand alone novel too.

Where to start now. Jarvis has been tortured for decades by one crazy woman who wanted men to be in touch with their feelings; she just used a bit too much torture and was just way too insane to get it right. He and his buddies are now free and he sure feels that he can never go near a woman again. Not to mention that he is the Guardian of hate and spreads hate wherever he goes. He is as manly as they get (since he must make up for all those lessons in colour appreciation and knitting.). Sure at times he is a bit too much but who can blame the poor guy.

Reina the heroine is working for Death harvesting souls. But she also has family trouble as all the women in her family are now dead after being bitten by one nasty creature. This makes them feel more powerful and free during their last days (one climbed Mount Everest and fell down). Now she wants to protect the only sister she has left. Jarvis will help her as he also needs help getting his brother back. And of course sparks fly since she was attracted to him from the moment she saw him and he can't help feeling things he never thought he would feel.

Honestly the books just have to be read to be understood. There is so much going on, so many beings out there. Like the Beedubs who killed her family because they are Sweets (make the best chocolate), The Godfather who is so good that women die when they orgasm. And of course Death, I love him, he is a total ass and playboy but you got to love him. And here we see that there is something more to him. I can't wait for him to fall in love with a girl and love only her (oh please please give me that book!). And many more. The characters in this book are just the best.

The style is kind of snarky, ironic, sarcastic humour, dark. What I am trying to say it is not haha funny, but funny and incredibly amusing none the less.

Conclusion:

How to wrap this up then...The book is amusing, rich in its world and there is passion and romance that threatens to explode off the pages. it is just one of those books you have to read to fully understand what it is all about.

rating:

nice ( )

If you have read Stephanie Rowe's previous Soulfire book, Kiss At Your Own Risk, you know that the humor is so over the border of absurd that you just have to roll with it and be ready for one laugh after another thrown in with your romance. I really enjoyed Reina in the previous book so it was nice to see her have her own story. Her character was funny and sweet but I was hoping for a little more kick butt coming from someone aspiring to be one of Death's reapers. Granted we find out the true reason behind her career aspirations and they aren't as morbid as expected but still she was pretty weak and too much of a damsel in distress for my tastes. I liked Jarvis but he took the whole pity party for me that I'm hate and my death will doom the world and no one could ever love me too far. That was the main reason I did not rate this story higher.

What I did love about this book were the supporting characters. We got to see more of Death and get a deeper look into his softer side. Who knew he was such a sucker for Cupid and true love. The banter between the assassin, Augustus, and the other characters including Death's grandfather and Reina's sister cracked me up. And how can I not mention the Godfather who apparently kills women with orgasms. Come on, how could you not want to see more of him and get the background on him?

Overall, did not live up to the first book in the series but is still fun to read if you need one of those books that are so over the top that you have to laugh. ( )

TOUCH IF YOU DARE by Stephaine Rowe is an exciting paranormal romance.It is Book 2 the "Soulfire Series",but can be read as a stand alone. See "Kiss at Your Own Risk". It is fast paced,action paced from the first page to the last. It has demons,vampires,a secret society,Death,the Guardian of Hate,Guardian of Love, Satan,demons,nearly immortal warriors, vampires,adventure,comedy,romance,sweet sensuality,and kick butt women. Jarvis Swain,sexy,dangerous,is the Guardian of Hate,immortal warrior, who has survived 150 years of tortureby women, by channeling his emotions into not only an aversion to the opposite sex by into destructive emotions not could destroy not only him but the world as we know it. Reina Fleming,is beautiful,Death's sexy assistant,a kick butt warrior,has a magic touch,trying to save her sister from a horrible death and just as Jarvis needs her,she needs Jarvis. Together they kick butt,find love,save the world and Jarvis learns that he can feel something other than an aversion to the opposite sex. While Jarvis' brother is the Guardian of Love,he also wishes for Death,so Death offers him a bargain he can't refuse,or so he thinks.Reina and Jarvis is on a time schedule before everything is destroyed including Jarvis. Who just might explode.While this is a paranormal story with dark tendencies it is also hilarious at times.Who knew Death,and demons could have a funny side. With an adventure full of comedy,love,some romance,a few kick butt females and dangerous,sexy males how could any reader go wrong with "Touch If You Dare".A must read for any and all paranormal readers who enjoy a trip through comedy demon style.This book was received for the purpose of review from the publisher.Details can be found at Sourcebooks Casablanca,an imprint of Sourcebooks,Inc. and My Book Addiction Reviews.
