To Touch You is the fourth book in the series and although it runs partly parallel with the third book (In Your Eyes), it can absolutely be enjoyed as a standalone. If you are a fan of this series you will not be disappointed as all three couples from the previous books are present and have great scenes together. If you are new, like me, you will have fun getting to know everyone and learning about life in CC’s shifter/vampire universe.

I truly loved this book. Cardeno C. writes romances with a lot of heart that never fails to give readers that feel-good feeling we all love and crave in our romance novels.

This was a beautiful love story full of lust, angst and sexiness with hot mix of intrigue. It made me anxious, it made me tear up and it definitely made me HOT as heck! Cardeno's writing was just smooth and beautiful one of he best telling of shifter story I have read so far. I look forward to reading more of his work and I'm excited to experience more. Absolutely LOVED it! Go get it and enjoy!


Oooh, I just loved this one you guys! ...What is so wonderful about The Half of Us is the way author Cardeno C really elevates the story beyond just this fears commitment/wants a relationship dynamic in a way that makes for a fascinating story and wonderful characters. ...Jason doesn't see a future for himself with anyone long term and it never occurs to him he can have that. But as the relationship with Abe slowly builds, Jason goes with it. ...It scares him sometimes, and definitely surprises him, but Jason goes with it in a way that is really appealing. What also makes this work so well is the complexity of both of these characters. ....Jason comes across arrogant and quick tempered, but he is also so warm and loving underneath. He dotes on Abe, he is caring with his ex-wife, and he is determined to make a relationship with his kids. For his part, Abe is also more than he seems at first. ...What is interesting about Abe is that deep down, there is a much wilder side to him than he lets out. ...There is this wonderful undercurrent of dirtiness between them, of hard, intense, messy sex that makes both of them crazy. ...The men are crazy hot together and it is so much fun to see them really explore both of their desires....I just adored Abe and loved him and Jason together. I really liked seeing how Abe makes Jason a better man, makes him reach for…

What a fun and interesting read! There are some definitely steamy moments, but the focus here is on the story and these two endearing and wonderful characters.
