The way of the commune is the only way I know. Born into sin, I have to repent daily.

If we follow the laws of the Brothers, our sins will be forgiven, and they will take us with them to The Promised Land. All I have been taught is that I’m bad, shameful and a whore.

But, in the deepest part of my heart I can’t help but wonder about life. Is the way of The Order really the only way?
I listen to the teachings. I watch my sisters as they dutifully do what they’re told.
With every passing day I can feel my faith slipping away. How can I believe in something that feels so wrong? I feel like an outsider.

I feel like I don’t belong anywhere until I meet Liam. The first man to show me what love is turns out to be just like the rest of them.

I’m done putting my faith in men. I’ll save myself.


Cults - I have this intense hunger for revenge against them.
Because of them, my sister took her own life.

Instead of getting my revenge, I get Mila. She changes things. But when I begin to unravel the secrets of her past that revenge comes back. I can’t forgive her for belonging to a cult. I blame her.

There’s only one problem, somehow that love I felt for her is coming back and my hate is turning to lust.

In the end I’m the one who needs saving.

Angie’s Thoughts:

I really wanted to love this book and I did at first. I read it so fast that I couldn’t put it down. Then a common problem kept happening over and over. Eating away at me and instead of enjoying the book I became annoyed.

What? You ask. Mia’s constant whining and reminding us she escaped from a cult every. single. chance. she. could. get. I wanted to love her and feel a connection with her. I understood her having panic attacks and even being hesitant to open up about her past to others. I just wanted to feel a connection and that I have to sadly say was lacking for me.

Liam came along and my hopes jumped high. I loved Liam. My heart hurt for him and I thought “Finally! Someone so perfect for Mia!” He knew they were perfect for each other and she did too but her reluctance to open up and constantly whining ruined any connection I felt for both of them.

By the ending, it starts to pick up but it feels rushed. I really wish we could have had more build up. I just felt unsatisfied. It was lacking and I’m not talking about an HEA for certain characters.

There was so much promise for A Touch of Lust. I’m genuinely sad that this book wasn’t meant for me. Michelle is a fantastic writer and because I didn’t like this one book doesn’t mean I won’t read others by her.

The Verdict:


My first instinct is to cover myself, but the scorching look in his eyes makes me stand still.

My conscience screams at me that this is wrong, but it’s quickly silenced by the sinner in me.

“Don’t look at me like I’m your ticket to the promised land, babe. I’ll only lead you to hell.”

Heat spreads through my body and tiny tongues of desire lick at my skin.

“You make me want to be a bad girl,” I whisper. My voice is hoarse with sinful need.

I want to feel his touch. I want to be defiled by him.
