Review: Touch If You Dare by Stephanie Rowe

Touch If You Dare is the second book in the Soulfire series by Stephanie Rowe and a Paranormal Romance from Sourcebooks Casablanca.

Book Blurb:

He’s just about ready to explode...

Jarvis Swain is fast turning into a hate machine, and if that happens, the whole world is doomed.  Unless he can get Death’s sexy assistant Reina Fleming to help him...

She’s in desperate need of a badass warrior on a mission...

When Death presents Reina with a dreadful ultimatum, Reina knows she needs to call in someone ruthless, powerful, and confident...

Jarvis Swain is the warrior Reina needs at her back, and she’s got the magic touch that ameliorates his dark side.  But the two of them together are one heck of a volatile combination...

My thoughts:

Reina Fleming has spent her entire life watching the people she loves the most die from a curse placed upon them when she was a young girl.  The only member of her family to escape the curse, Reina has made it her mission to find a way to break the curse before she loses her last sister.  

And time is running out.

Jarvis Swain has been the Guardian of Hate for one hundred and fifty years.  That is a really long time, considering most Guardians die after only fifty years on the job.  But things are getting dicey, and Jarvis has begun leaking hate to those around him. 

No problem.  

He just needs to find his brother, the Guardian of Love.  Once he finds his brother - the Love should balance out the Hate.  Well, that’s the plan, anyway.

There is a problem though.  Death has taken Love - and Jarvis has no way to find him..unless he can get Reina to help him.  That works for Reina, because she needs a little help herself.

Now the two just need to work together to accomplish their separate goals.  Right?  Right.

Touch If You Dare is a fun, quick read.  I like the humor and the players and I’m looking forward to the next installment - Hold Me IF You Can - coming in 2012.

I give Touch Me If You Dare 3 out of 5 stars.

Death is your favorite? :) He is a bit quirky - not unlike his grandmother - just not so evil. LOL
