Review & GIVEAWAY: "Touched By You"


Title: Touched By You

Author: T.H. Snyder

Genre: New Adult Romance

Release Date: October 31, 2013



Chloe and Derrick have spent most of their lives together as friends and as lovers; they have formed a connection that few couples can make last. This duo is bound by one thing that no one can destroy. They have been touched by one another and no one can take that away. 

That is until one of them is forced to make a decision and their lives take on a different path. 

Can these two withstand the reality of what lies ahead? Are they able to hold a relationship together with just the mere fact that they may love each other? Is it possible to maintain a bond that no one else has been able to touch?

Chloe and Derrick may have the relationship others dream about, but sometimes things do get in the way and it can be impossible to forgive and forget.


When best friends finally give in to the feelings they have for each other they become first lovers.  There is such a strong pull both emotionally and physically.  How much strain can be put on that pull before it snaps? Once the tear is there, can it be repaired?

Chloe and Derrick have been together as lovers since their Junior year in high school. They manage to make it through the 4 years of long distance during college. Life continually gets in the way. Careers become top priority for both. Can the love they share survive?

This book is written in dual POV. It's nice to see how both people in this couple are reacting to the situation. I like that neither are insecure in the relationship when it comes to fidelity. The only real problem they are having is the distance and missing each other which is a breath of fresh air and separates this love story from so many books out there.

It's very easy to like and fall in love with these characters.  They are caring people that want to do right by each other. The love that Chloe and Derrick share is both passionate and real. I loved t hat we got to see it age along with them. The beginning with them sneaking around as teenagers was a welcome and real addition to the story.

This book is a very Real 5 STAR read.

 It's full of everyday events that young love experience as teenagers become adults. It's love at all it's beautiful, ugly, and nervous stages.

Waiting to board a plane back to Boston, I sit here wondering if I made the right choices in life. Did I follow the path that would take me in the right direction? Could I have done something different that would change the outcomes I’m faced with right now?

I haven’t seen or spoken to him in four months. Four long, torturous months dealing with what I did to us and our happily ever after. I know I’ll run into him soon, but when I do I’m not sure how he’ll react. He could accept me in an embrace or turn the corner and run the other way.

What did I do?

The choices I’ve made changed my life in only a short period of time and I fear I may have lost him forever.

At one time he was all I ever knew. The two of us were so in sync with the other no force field could tear us apart. I can hear him whisper in my ear. “Chloe you and I will stand the test of time because I was touched by you and only you.”

I, Chloe Taylor, am faced with a decision I may not like myself for in the next few hours. Only time will tell what is meant to be and for now I have a much bigger weight on my plate than that of my love life.
