Lists with This Book. DNF This is just too sweet, even for me. I don’t know what exactly is my problem, I was expecting an emotional story, but for some reason, I j.r.lvoeless like the story was forcing me to be emotional with the constant crying and shocks of the main guy.

Touch Me Gently Audiobook | J.R. Loveless |
Drama like my man left me, took my dog and burned my house down on my birthday. He’s had some trauma and is scared of big men, so he gets fired from jobs again and again. He meets his new boss Logan Who’s big but has tasty looks. I really liked Kaden and wanted him to keep his job because Montana’s much cheaper than NYC Right from the beginning Logan is attracted to Kaden and this doesn’t seem to bother Logan much even though Logan thinks himself straight and sees Kaden as really young which is weird, just a touch.
The drama ramps up a bit when in the middle of the night Kaden helps Logan deliver a baby horse because apparently Kaden is something of a horse whisperer Of course, of course, of course.
I must not have been paying attention. This is when we find out that Kaden’s a cutter and reading about him hurting himself really got to me. I think the author wanted to throw every horrible thing into this book and it’s my opinion that she should have pulled some of the craziness back.
I swear that all this book was missing was some explosions, animal abuse and a beheading or something But wait things reached the pinnacle when a dying child gets slipped in with some possibly permanent paralysis. Then there are visions and a physical therapist who gives tough love and I thought to myself “Is there no end to this?
I had to give myself a shock to start my heart back up Fortunately there was an end and it was a happy one. Kaden and Logan build a family, surround themselves with friends and there are surprises and sex in between. The last few pages made me smile with the implausibility of the scene. I was all “Really?
Whatever, I’ll go with it. I can’t j.r.lovelezs recommend this book but it’s better than a hit-and-miss. View all 17 comments.

There’s the lack of emotional realism; in particular, the fact that Kaden comes to the ranch so terribly traumatized that he can’t even have a single lustful thought or feeling without having a panic attack – and having been this way for years and years – and yet within three months he’s having sex, apparently without a single moment of trauma or fear once the barrier is breached, so to speak.
That felt so inappropriate, and so untimely, that I couldn’t get past it – and md just one example, the biggest one, of a j.r.llveless lack of realism, what another commenter described well as the author taking the easy way out for herself and her characters: Kaden just got over his problems em, way too easily.

Then there were the pages of exposition, of telling-not-showing, in which the author described the characters’ feelings, what was going on in their heads, their motivations j.r.loevless desires, rather than illustrating these with actions and conversations. There was the lack of clear, much less consistent, point of view. And the constant reference to Kaden, by both the author and by Logan, as “the teenager” or “the teen” went beyond annoying why not just use his name?
He was 19 – hardly the age typically referred to as j.r.lovelezs “teenager” – gentlyy if he was old enough to be establishing a permanent relationship with Logan, he was old enough at least to be referred to as a man.
I could barely finish this book, mostly because of the emotional heavy-handedness and the h.r.loveless and un-nuanced dealing with difficult issues; once I got to the sex, I was hard put to keep going.
All this, combined with the stylistic issues, made it impossible for me to have any emotional connection with the characters, despite the good set-up. I’m hoping the author can learn from these comments – and all the negative ones are fairly consistent – because her writing style is solid enough to show the capacity for improvement. And a good editor to rigorously point out and help address the telling-not-showing problem, to tone down the emotional extremism, and to act as a check for emotional realism, could make a huge difference.

Original review Oct 19, This book is written terribly, but at the end of a really bad day it was like a big dish of over-sweet ice cream with canned whipped cream and syrup: BUT, it’s light and floofy, there’s an HEA, no one makes anyone else suffer through weeks of orgasm denial I’m looking at you, Billy and Tannyand there are horses, yay.

Whereas I should be starting on the j.r.lpveless book to read unfortunately my mind kept playing back to this one and even though I was only going to rate it I felt the urge, the need to write up my thoughts on this story in question.

This is it for me. There are many factors I found disturbing within this story that perhaps the timing in j.r.loveles this one was off for me, but I started it so I was going to see it through and damn well finish it even at the warning bells going off on stop reading it. I found it just so.
He has so much to deal with in life that I found it incredible he even made it to the point he had in the book without having tried to commit suicide but rather he becomie a cutter as an alternative to sever any emotional pain that deems to stressful for him to handle or cope.
Experience and see what life is all about. This is where it bombed for me. When was enough, enough? At what point was happiness and joy of life going to begin?
It did nothing for the black threatening cloud spiraling above not only the character’s heads but j.loveless reader’s as well. Having said all I have to say, now I can move on, up and forward to the next book that a good friend has dissected as the proper read for me at this time in my life after berating me for having read this one.

You’ll always be mine! We find out his father died before he was born in a car accident and at some point his mother remarried at what age Kaden was when this happened is never disclosed to Gary, who turns out to be a pedophile. Gary would sneak into Kaden’s room and j.r.loveles things” to him. He was threatened with more harm if he told his mother. I’ll let it go. The brutality and rapes begin in earnest at this point. Over the next five years Gary proceeds to rape, beat, cut him with knives and razor blades, and burn him all over his body with cigars.
He said he wanted to make me ugly to the world so they wouldn’t try to take me away from him. Not a teacher, a neighbor?
