Title: A Touch of Lust
Author: Michelle Horst
Genre: Romance, Dark themed romance
I was so excited to read this book. I love everything Michelle Horst. I don’t think I have the right words to do this review justice though. Mila and Liam are from two different cults and ended up finding each other after escaping that horrible life. Both are very strong yet vulnerable characters. Both of their stories touched me. I think Mila was my favorite part of the story. I love a strong female lead. She was definitely that. Mila went through so much and found the courage, even though deathly afraid, to escape at only 14 years old. She went to school and was trying to make a good life for herself even though she lived in terror every single day. She fought that fear to finish school, have friends and fall in love. I admire her strength so so much. I laughed, cried, felt her fear and fell in love all while reading this book. I have found a new appreciation for feathers and loving the people who come into my life, even when they do eventually leave it. I honestly feel this is one of Michelle Horst’s best books she has ever written. I can’t imagine the emotions she must have gone through writing this. When you read it, please be sure to read the author’s note in the back of the book as well. I honestly wish I could give this book 7 stars. It more than deserves it!
