By Her Touch by Adriana Anders

He Will Always Bear the Scars

Undercover cop Clay Navarro left the Sultans biker gang a changed man. Its ringleaders may be awaiting trial, but he wears the memory of every brutal act he was forced to commit tattooed across his skin. He doesn't have space in his messed-up life for anything gentle—not now, maybe not ever.

Dr. Georgette Hadley is drawn to the damaged stranger's pain, intimidated but intrigued by the warmth that lies beneath Clay's frightening exterior. But when the Sultans return looking for revenge, she finds herself drawn into the dirty underbelly of a life forged in violence...that not even her touch may be able to heal.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is the second in the series, and after being very impressed by Under Her Skin, I was delighted to read this latest release. It is set in the same town and we see a little of the previous protagonists, but this time it is Dr. Hadley who gets her story told.

She is asked by a very big, scary, biker type to remove some truly awful tattoos, which we discover have a very dark provenance. In spite of her natural fear, she recognises a man full of hurt and cannot turn him away.

And so starts an amazingly slow, meaningful, tortured relationship between two very wary individuals. The build up to the climax is unbelievably long, but completely addictive. Knowing that something has to go wrong gets under the reader’s skin and draws out the angst to crazy levels.

If you like a book to give you full intense reading value, then this will do it in spades. I was, by turns, so engaged that I could not put it down, and then so tense that I did not want to read on... of course once I got to a certain stage, a hurricane could have blown through and I wouldn't have noticed!

Thank you Ms. Anders, another fascinating read.
