Review: Love in Touch

Love In Touch - Lucy May Lennox

Love in Touch has some so-so moments, mainly with the way Jake, who is blind and deaf, is handled. He's the bright spot in this story and very dimensional with a strong personality. Unfortunately the heroine, Kassie brings this entire story down. Kassie is a woman in her mid-twenties, but acts more like she's in high school. She comes across as screechy and whiny. Also the abundance of exclamation points (!!!!!) when Kassie yells or gets excitable, which is the majority of time. She also comes across as defensive and standoffish, and because of that she is unlikable.

The other characters, which the exception of Jake, the secondary cast comes across as wallpaper. Kassie's annoying co-worker, Dave, who may or may not have a thing for her doesn't really make any sense being in this story, and her lovable serial dater gay roommate, Erik, comes and goes without any real purpose either. There is a lot of preachiness and too much telling not showing.

The writing is very green and weak. It needs a heavy dose of editing. What should have been a wonderful romance with a handicapped character fails in the execution because the author doesn't have a good enough grasp of the written word to make this work as it should have.

A pass
