The beginning of the story leaves you wanting to know more. By the end of the first chapter, I could not wait to finish the book. The world the author created is very realistic and I was easily pulled into the world the author created. The pace of the story was fast paced right from the start and kept you engaged right from the start. The main characters and the secondary characters were fascinating and true to life. Both Ty and Zane had faults that they each had to battle making them realistic. The point of view alternated between Ty and Zane, giving the reader a glimpse inside both characters. The changing point of view was done with care so the reader did not get lost or repeat story lines.

The conflict of the story not just kept the story moving but and the conflict increased it seemed to pull the reader deeper into the story. While there was a lot of conflict it was always the perfect level, and I never seemed too overwhelmed by the story. The dialogue between the characters was genuine and distinctive. The characters voice matched not only the setting but fit their overall personality. The ending was a bit predictable but the author takes the reader on a wonderful journey. I hope we get to see these characters again in the future.

Touch and Geaux is the seventh book in the Cut and Run series by Abigail Roux. While this book is part of the series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel. However, this book is best read as part of the series.
