Multiple #1 New York Times bestselling author Maya Banks continues her Slow Burn series with a suspenseful and sizzling story of a young woman who escapes a terrifying past… into a more uncertain future.

Raised in a strict religious cult since she was a young girl, Jenna has no connection to the outside world beyond vague flashes of memory that seem to be from another life. Memories she clings to when the cult leaders discover her extraordinary ability to heal-and punish her. Years held captive and forced to do the cult's bidding have turned Jenna into a meek, timid woman…or so they think. In truth, she is merely biding her time, waiting for the perfect moment to escape.

When a terrified young woman tries to steal the SUV of Devereaux Security's toughest recruit, Isaac's anger quickly turns into a strange sort of protectiveness for the beautiful, bruised stranger. But when they are caught in a firestorm of bullets and Isaac is hit, he's sure the end is near, until Jenna touches him and closes his wounds. As he tries to bring Jenna to safety, she refuses to tell him what danger haunts her or how she healed him, but Isaac vows to do whatever it takes to gain her trust…and her heart. Because with just one touch, Isaac knows he wants Jenna to be his--forever.

“She’s mine, Dane. No one else’s. I told you I’d ask if and when I need backup or help. Until then, it’s better that none of you are associated with her or are seen anywhere near her. She risked everything to save me when I could have been no better than the assholes trying to get to her. She sealed her fate in that moment because I’m not going anywhere. I need time to hear her side and I have a feeling she’s not just going to volunteer any information about herself, so I’m also going to need time to gain her trust and I’m going to prove to her that she can trust me. I appreciate the offer. More than you know. But she isn’t a DSS client or assignment. She’s mine, and I’ll protect her with my life.”

5 Stars from Renee!

I was pulled right into this story. Book is packed full of suspense and twists and turns you will not be expecting. Maya knows just how to keep you turning the pages.

I would recommend reading the below story before reading this one:
Keep Me Safe (Slow Burn #1)
In His Keeping (Slow Burn, #2)
Safe at Last (Slow Burn #3)
With Every Breath (Slow Burn #4)

This is Jenna and Isaac’s story. Jenna has been raised in a religious cult from a young age. When they learned of her ability they began to punish her for that ability. Year later she is a captive and forces to do the cults bidding. She seems broken and meek but on the inside, she is just waiting for the perfect time to escape the cult. If she can get to the outside world she knows she will be okay. When she gets the chance, she tries to steal Isaac’s SUV. He is not happy but when looks closer at her he knows she needs his help. When he is injured she helps him but will that help cost her? Or will he help her even after he learns of her ability? Can he keep her safe? What happens when he wants her for his own? Is she trading on capture or another prison? 

Lots of secrets and questions are answered in this story but there are still more to be answered and can’t wait to see what Maya has in store for the rest of this series.

Highly recommend this book and this series. 


5 Stars from Brianna!

Maya Banks is a fantastic writer and definitely one of my favorites. I discovered her brilliant words at the beginning of my reading romance career and haven't looked back since. She's never disappointed me and never fails to deliver the some of the most swoonworthy heroes.

The Slow Burn series is magical, intense, passionate, suspenseful, and sexy... while packed with loads of secrets and drama... and don't forget those touches of paranormal that adds that *extra* unique quality to this series that makes it that much more special.

Just One Touch is Jenna and Isaac's story (a complete standalone) and holy smokes what a story it was... I'm talking non-stop reading cover to cover. Best of the series and crazy addicting by the end of the first chapter, the journey they took me on was full of emotions and a chance at... more.

Isaac, swoon! I loved loved loved him! I rooted for these two... rooting for Jenna and him.... loving every moment and interaction between them. Their chemistry was mesmerizing and their love is magnetic.

While I'm not a huge paranormal fan, I'm a huge fan of this author and used can promise you.... it's not what you think. This is one series you do not want to miss.

I highly recommend this book.
