Jenna had been kidnapped as a child and raised in a cult,
but knowing that she is about to be sold gives her the
courage to finally make her escape. She knows no matter how
horrible her life had been she knew what was coming next
would be a lot worse. She never imagined that JUST ONE TOUCH
would really set her free.
Isaac Washington, a member of Devereaux Security, becomes
part of her last ditch effort to evade recapture and finds
out why this little "angel" is so sought after. He then
plans to protect her from everyone who would harm her,
despite her wanting to run to protect him and his friends
JUST ONE TOUCH is going to put you on a roller coaster ride
that is emotional as well as action packed. This is is the
fifth of Maya Banks Slow
Burn series and the impact is just as strong as the
first. The men who belong to Devereaux Security are tough
men, but when it comes to women they have definite soft
spots. All the wives are sisters to the members and they
would do anything and everything to protect them. Isaac is
the same, after meeting Jenna and she saves him, he knows he
can do nothing more than to put his life on the line for her.
I am a strong believer in love at first sight and I think
the way this one was handled was perfect. Once Isaac
realizes she is totally innocent in everything to do with
this world, he steps back and wants to teach her, especially
how he and his friends treat women. I also loved that
Shadow, one of his teammates, let her know that he was now a
part of her family by helping to teach her about affection
and explaining things. Something about Shadow drew me in as
much as the plot involving Jenna and Isaac. I guess because
I am a sucker for any kind of camaraderie and this was
perfect for me as the guys considered each other family.
There are a number of unforeseen twists and turns in this
story and ... wow ... I was not prepared for the ending of
the danger to go the way it did. Nor could I have ever
anticipated the truth of her kidnapping to be explained the
way it was. But JUST ONE TOUCH is just what Maya Banks'
readers have come to expect, especially in this series.

bestselling author Maya Banks continues her suspenseful and
sizzling Slow Burn series with the fifth book featuring the
men and women of Devereaux Security Services.
Raised in a strict religious cult since she was a young
girl, Jenna has no connection to the outside world beyond
vague flashes of memory that seem to be from another life.
Memories she clings to when the cult leaders discover her
extraordinary ability to heal—and punish her. Years held
captive and forced to do the cult's bidding have turned
Jenna into a meek, timid woman…or so they think. In truth,
she is merely biding her time, waiting for the perfect
moment to escape.
When a terrified young woman tries to steal the SUV of
Devereaux Security’s toughest recruit, Isaac’s anger quickly
turns into a strange sort of protectiveness for the
beautiful, bruised stranger. But when they are caught in a
firestorm of bullets and Isaac is hit, he’s sure the end is
near, until Jenna touches him and closes his wounds. As he
tries to bring Jenna to safety, she refuses to tell him what
danger haunts her or how she healed him, but Isaac vows to
do whatever it takes to gain her trust…and her heart.
Because with just one touch, Isaac knows he wants Jenna to
