    With Hold My Hand, Paloma Beck spins the threads of a new erotic romance. The perfect balance of sweet romance and erotic kink, the love of William and Aubrey captures a reader and commands their story be heard. Touch My Heart takes those threads and weaves a tapestry that carries the reader to another level. In many ways, Ms. Beck delivers the story that the reader was left wanting at the end of Book 1.For those who are afraid Touch My Heart is a rehash of Hold My Hand, fear not! Despite being told completely in William's voice, only a few pivotal moments are retold. To be perfectly honest, having the dominant male explain his motivations helps to create a deeper bond with the reader, one that was lacking in the initial telling. The induction of Aubrey into the domestic discipline lifestyle takes on a more sensual tone as William cultivates the woman of his dreams in the submissive blank slate that is Aubrey. Perhaps most enticing is the man's desire to build up the shredded self esteem of the young barista, almost at any cost. His passion for his work, his family and his love make the anti-hero of book one the dominant dreamboat of book two. Aubrey's growth and sense of self, as seen through the eyes of William, are more palatable in many ways. (Call it the rose colored glasses of love, but William's voice quiets the self-doubting, self-berating of the previously abused woman).As the story unfolds, the reader meets William's friends and family. The true significance of Aubrey in his life dazzles the reader into hoping the culmination will be a traditional HEA. Without divulging any story details or spoiler alerts, it is safe to say the author leads the reader to believe William's strength and the love of his family will finally heal the broken bird that is Aubrey....until the unforeseen cliffhanger. For certain, all readers who are hooked by Touch My Heart will be clamoring for the final installment in this surprisingly romantic erotic tale of a man, a woman and the needs that only each other can fulfill.I give Touch My Heart FIVE (5) Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries and one of our precious Ultimate Indulgence Awards! Well done Ms. Beck - you have hit your stride! Originally written for the Guilty Indulgence Book Club blog site: www.guiltyindulgencebookclub.blogspot...

    Check out this review and others atwww.Twinsietalk.comwww.Twinsietalk.blogspot.comwww.Facebook.com/Twinsietalk@TwinsietalkI got this book from the author for an honest review.First I must begin this review with a SCREAM to the author....Shaking my fist i will yell...PALOMA!!! you can't leave me hanging like this......Ok now with the review.....So I fell head over heals with William when I read the first book in this series. He is a Dominant who knows what he wants and he wants Aubrey. The first book of the series is all Aubrey's POV. We learn why she is so insecure and how William get her over it. This book is Williams POV. We see him grow more and more in love with Aubrey as she grows more and more confident in herself. There is overlap between the books but I loved it. I remembered the scenes and where Aubrey's head was so it is cool to see William's take on everything. This book does take you out past book one to see William and Aubrey finally admitting their love for each other. I will admit to tears at that point. We, the reader, knows how they feel but to finally see it.....priceless.......William finally gets to take his little elf home to meet his parents. no shock that they adore her!! She also is supportive of everything he is dealing with in terms of his mother...sniff sniff......I was glad when William got to finally talk to Aubrey's parent to see how AWFUL they are in regards to her.I was so happy with the way this book was moving and grooving that when the last few pages are read I had to back track and re-read to make sure I read it right. I was GASPING at this cliffhanger....I didn't see it coming and I will tell you that I cannot wait to see what the heck happens!!!

    Probably 3.5 stars. It wasn't bad, but it is a cliffhanger which irritated me. This is a male POV story (the female POV story is published but I didn't read it) about two people entering a domestic BDSM relationship. She's a walking, barely talking obvious submissive and he's the dominant, son of a man and wife in a similar D/s relationship. We read as he "trains" her in his wants and needs, and "disciplines" her when she breaks the rules. It really is pretty light BDSM compared to a lot of the books I've read.It was a nicely written story, the H was a compassionate man especially now in dealing with his mother who is afflicted with Alzheimers. But I know I could never be a submissive because it was never so obvious as in this book how man-centric it is. He feeds her off his plate, even in a restaurant. He punishes her when she forgets not to get up out of bed until he wakes up to see what his needs might be (except she can go to the bathroom, how nice of him). And, the punishments seem to be more to turn him on than correct a terrible wrong.But that said, there is a cliffhanger and the book got me just enough into it that I'm pretty sure I'll buy it to find out what happens.

    Touch My Heart is the second book in the Heart & Soul series by Paloma Beck. It tells the story of William and Aubrey, this time from William’s POV. I wasn’t’ aware that there was a first book from Aubrey’s POV, so I experienced their story for the first time with Touch My Heart. While I will now plan to go back and read Hold My Hand to learn more about Aubrey, reading Touch My Heart did not leave me feeling like there were gaps – or at least not like there were gaps that made the story incomplete.William is a dominant, and he’s been content with playmates to satisfy his tendencies. But when William sees Aubrey, he not only recognizes in her the spirit of a natural submissive, but there’s something about Aubrey that captivates him in a way he’s never experienced, and William starts to think about the kind of domestic discipline arrangement like his parents have – a permanence – with Aubrey as is partner. I loved the chemistry between these two characters. Aubrey’s nature is submissive, but she also has deep-seeded emotional wounds. She trusts William, but her own insecurities keep her somewhat closed off and reticent when it comes to William. Despite his dominant nature and his sometimes frustration with Aubrey for failing to recognize her own beauty and worth, William is both tender and patient (even in punishment) as he nurtures Aubrey’s inner-submissive. I must warn the reader that the story ends on a rather shocking cliffhanger. I kept watching my percent meter and was starting to become a little concerned as I hit the 90% mark, as it was clear that the story was really developing and moving along nicely and couldn’t possibly conclude so quickly. Then, BAM! She did it. Paloma Beck ends Touch My Heart without warning. The conclusion of the series – Heal My Soul – is scheduled for release this summer.Four enjoyable stars.

    Touch my Heart is the second book in the Heart and Soul series and provides William’s side of the story to Hold my Hand. What was great about this story is how the author wove in a few BDSM 101 points for those readers who are not as acclimatized to the BDSM lifestyle, as well as defuse some of the immediate assumptions associated with it. This story is a perfect introduction to the BDSM world for those curious but cautious about BDSM related books.William is a dominant that wants what his parents have; someone special to live in a domestic discipline relationship. His search is over now that he has discovered Aubrey, who he believes to be a natural submissive. William must slowly seduce and persuade Aubrey she needs him just as much as he has grown to need her. Although there is the underlining need to dominate, William surprised me by how gentle and calming he was with Aubrey. *shivers* I could almost hear his deep velvet voice soothing me into submission. I can not wait to find out if William and Aubrey can overcome their demons and begin to heal each other in the next installment!

    I was expecting more in this read and the first book in this series was okay. Aubry and William are a couple and the first book is her POV and this one is his. I was surprised he showed so much restraint and his feelings were so strong from the beginning. William has come to love her and he is trying to help her emotionally. Her parents have some major issues with her and William gets a peek at how they are with her. I wanted more interaction between William and them. I guess we will find out in the next read. I will not be surprised if her parents have something to do with the ending of this story. I received this ARC from the publisher via Net Galley for my honest review. Thank you, Net Galley.

    Touch My HeartHeart and Soul #2by Paloma BeckGiven by author for an honest review.I loved Hold My Hand, book 1 of the Heart and Soul series, which was Aubrey's POV of William and her meeting and starting a relationship. A relationship that is quite different from what you normally hear others talk about.Touch My Heart is Williams POV of his and Aubrey's meeting and the start of their relationship. You might be thinking "why would I want to read the same story twice?". Your not. William was fantastic in Hold My Hand and I didn't think he could get any better, but oh Wow! You know, sometimes cliffhangers can be a good thing. I am really looking forward to 'Heal My Soul' coming out. Hope it is soon.

    Oh my gosh! I thought I was in love with William in Hold my Hand, I KNOW I'm in love with him now! I loved reading Aubrey's pov, but let me tell you. Williams thoughts are even better! I knew he cared for Aubrey but the extent he cared for her was beautiful. Other things nice about the book, we got to see William interact with his friends and family and see what makes William the way he is. Also the book goes beyond where Hold my Hand ended. So we get even more William and Aubrey.Bad news. Cliffhanger. Goods news. I wasn't ready for their story to be over yet. So I will be eagerly waiting for the next installment!

    Not a total rehash of Hold My Hand but a change of points of view from Aubrey's to Williams narration. I have to say that I'm glad I read this one because I ended up liking William much more after reading this one than I did at the end of HOLD MY HAND. And we have a cliffhanger to propel us into the next in the series.

    Quick readThis book was recommended by my book club on Goodreads.com so I decided to read it. It starts off really quickly into a dominant male character and the submissive virgin plot but then it gets better. I felt connected to William right away and understand him and his decisions. It was a good book after all.

    The second book in the HEART AND SOUL Series gives William's perspective. For readers who wanted to know more about William than Aubrey told us in the first book, Touch My Heart gives that insight.

    Since when is it okay to call a self centered egotistical bastard a dominant instead of an ass hole? I found the whole premise of this couplet (two books describing the same event from two different points of view) aggravating, annoying, even disturbing. I decided to read the books Hold My Hand and Touch My Heart by Paloma Beck in tandem. The idea of presenting one story from both the male and female viewpoints was interesting, but could probably have been just as easily achieved in one book instead of two (although it was simple enough to create this illusion by going back and forth reading a bit of each). Since together they tell one story, I am only writing one review for both titles.Right up front, the characters were not endearing. Aubrey was whinny and pathetic. Her dark secret was a verbally abusive father and a mother who always seemed to take her father's side. Boo hoo. At twenty four you would think she could have moved past her "rough" privileged childhood. Even after achieving a college degree, she was only working as a barista making low wages at a coffee shop. Perhaps her father actually had some legitimate insight into her character. While he may have derided her throughout her childhood, her home life shouldn't have been traumatic enough to prevent her from making friends as an adult. It wasn't as if he had tied her up in the basement. Instead of feeling sorry for Aubrey, I was angry at her lack of gumption.Then there was William. After watching her for months, almost to the point of stalking, he has determined Aubrey is the woman for him. The attraction was not just for her good looks, although that was a plus, it was her naturally submissive personality. William searches for a way to reach out to her and reveal his role as a dominant. Even while he claims to care for Aubrey, William's thoughts are always on his own needs and desires. When he decides to please her, it's because that gives him pleasure. When she doesn't follow his instructions, she is punished. She has no free will - he tells her what to think and what to wear. He feeds her like a baby. When he tells her to jump, she says "Yes Sir" and complies. For William there is only black and white, no excuses allowed. And his bad temper colors his decisions, which are often not in Aubrey's best interests. William keeps telling Aubrey she is worthy and desirable, yet she is not allowed to express any feelings which are contrary to his idea of the truth. When she does share her innermost thoughts, William uses them to control her actions. In many ways William is worse that Aubrey's dad who may criticize her choices, but still allows her to make her own life decisions.To top things off, William's idea of a good time (for Aubrey) is to allow her to pleasure him, Sorry, that is not a turn on for me. I had to double check to make sure the author wasn't a man, it was that biased. To be fair, there were a few titilating scenes where Aubrey's gratification is the focus of William's attention.I have read other BDSM novels, but never one where the dominant is so domineering. The girls would have some sense of individuality instead of being constantly micromanaged. When the heroine in a story seems to be the victim of a sexual predictor, it becomes more of a story about abuse than kinky love.Needless to say, I won't be reading book three of the Heart and Soul Series, Heal My Soul, where William and Aubrey resolve their relationship. A thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for an ARC in exchange for an honest review. One and a half stars. This review also appears on my blog, Gotta Read.

    http://a-reader-lives-a-thousand-live...Title: Touch My Heart Series: Heart & Soul (#2) Author: Paloma Beck From: Netgalley Genre: Romance, BDSM-lite Release Date: 25th October 2013Challenges: 2015 Reading Assignment, 2015 Netgalley & Edelweiss Challenge, 2015 Prequels & Sequels Challenge (2 points) Links: Goodreads - AmazonEver since he first saw Aubrey, William has been smitten. Though he won't admit it to his friends, all he really wants is a wife and someone to share the BDSM lifestyle with. But he realises that he has to go slowly with Aubrey, and as he breaks down her barriers he learns new things about her that only draw them closer together. I've read Paloma Beck's books before and really enjoyed them, but something about Touch My Heart frustrated me a little bit. All through William's narrative I thought that there were a few moments where he would fixate on something and repeat it several times within a chapter where it wasn't needed. It was something minor, and maybe I was just in that kind of mood where I was picking up on things like that but it did detract some enjoyment from the book. I don't read many books from a male point of view (whether that is just because they are fewer or something I'm not sure) but I didn't really think there was much difference with William. I was just reading his world and it didn't matter that he was male. What was slightly different was that it was from the POV of the dominant, which I wasn't convinced worked quite so well in my opinion. I think I left it too long between reading Hold My Hand and Touch My Heart because I found it quite difficult to remember the plot points (and the books happen more or less simultaneously) which is actually quite unusual for me. So I was glad that this book did let me learn about the characters all over again. The thing that I really did like about Touch My Heart though was the fact that William's friends and parents got a look in, and he was actually quite open with how he felt about them. I like seeing more to characters like this.

    Touch My Heart is the second book in the Heart and Soul series, and boy oh boy is it a good read. I enjoyed the first book, Hold My Hand, but this one is even better. I really like Paloma Beck's writing style, and her take on the domestic discipline lifestyle. Her characters are well rounded, and she really knows how to draw you into a story and make sure you can't put it down.Shy barista Aubrey meets rich, enigmatic William and we follow their journey in a BDSM domestic discipline relationship. William works hard to improve Aubrey's confidence and self-esteem, which is almost non-existent thanks to her emotionally abusive father.Hold My Hand was told entirely in Aubrey's voice, and now we get William's point of view as Touch My Heart is told in his voice. It does overlap with the first book, but I didn't mind this at all as it was fascinating to get William's perspective on important events in their relationship. This book takes us forward in their relationship and we really see the love and bond grow between the pair, and it is heartwarming to read.In the first book William was somewhat mysterious and enigmatic, and it took me a while to connect to him. In this book I totally fell in love with him! Seeing how he felt about Aubrey and the love he had for his father and sick mother really touched my heart. There are some steamy moments in this book which I really enjoyed, especially the spanking scenes. The BDSM scenes are quite light, with some bondage and some sexy spankings. The author deals with these well and succinctly explains the domestic discipline lifestyle to readers who may be new to it.But Oh My God what an ending! I was expecting a HEA and really didn't expect the cliffhanger! Paloma what are you doing to me?! I can't wait for the next book and really hope it is released soon! Touch My Heart gets five big stars.I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.

    Touch My Heart is the second book in the Heart and Soul series. It is a decently written domestic discipline/light BDSM romance. This book has less editing errors than the first book, but there was one chapter where a character's name was changed several times. This was an ARC, so I didn't allow those errors to affect my rating.The first third of this book was a recap of the first book, except in the Hero's POV. He is still attempting to build up the heroine's self esteem (which was damaged by her abusive parents) and move their relationship forward. This book does end with a very abrupt cliffhanger.Two things made reading Touch My Heart a bit difficult for me: The Hero speaks in such a stilted, formal way that he comes off as being stuffy and self important. He is constantly pushing the heroine beyond her comfort level without respecting her desires.If you enjoy domestic discipline novels I think that you will enjoy Touch My Heart. There is going to be one more book in this series and I look forward to reading Heal My Soul.ARC provided by the publisher via Netgalley.

    This is the sequel to Hold My Hand, and it is everything I wanted - the story from the hero's viewpoint. I absolutely am enamored with Paloma Beck's writing style and her ability to balance sex and romance. This book again tackles the lifestyle of Domestic Discipline with grace and dignity, adding elements of D/s and BDSM but not at the risk of the story. The underlying theme I pick up is tenderness and care. The lead couple is extremely compelling, their back stories are explored and fit the picture of who they are at this point in time and explains their actions and reactions. Their journey to happily ever after is well plotted and satisfying. I looked forward to revisiting this couple and their world, and I was not disappointed.*I received my copy from NetGalley.com in exchange for an honest review.

    Five sizzling stars even without reading Aubrey's version first. William is very proper which seems to appeal to Aubrey's view of the men that are characters in the classic books she likes. William is a dominant in the manner that he craves control and finds his domestic partner in Aubrey. From the first time he laid eyes on her he was caught. I liked Williams pov and enjoyed being able to see his cave man theatrics put to words. Touch my heart is a lite bdsm book which more appealed to me then some I have previously read. It was good for us as readers to know that the punishments hurt his heart and it physically pain Aubrey. Hr felt he was doing best for her, giving her what she needed to be the best person she was capable of. I will now be purchasing hold my hand to see the book from her pov

    I really didn't care for book one in this series at all. But, I request both books 1 & 2 at the same time from Netgalley. So... I'm reviewing it.The first thing I notice was the writing was different in this book. I liked it better than the first book.But, I still didn't care for this book at all. A lot of retelling of events from the first bookJust new little things here and there. I hate that in a POV books! This book was interesting... But I think the first book set the tone for this book for me. I just couldn't get into it. William's nickname for Aubrey just irritated me. The spankings... Ughhh. No... Just no.And, the ending left off in a Cliffhanger.I will not be reading book 3 in this series.*ARC provided my publisher via Netgalley*

    A Love Story about Aubrey and William, now told through William's eyes. William, a Dom, has found the perfect woman to be his partner in life - now can he convince her to accept his lifestyle. I did not read the first book (which I guess is from her point of view) - but from what I could tell it doesn't matter - but I will be reading the first story also now. I found it an interesting read. To me the writing could have been better - seemed to lack something. It does have good sex scenes and the BDSM is lite compared to most. More of showing how the dominate 24/7 lifestyle would be. But the story sucked me in and with the cliffhanger ending I am sure to get the next book to see what happens.***ARC from NetGalley in Exchange for an honest review***

    NetGalley Free BookWilliam was raised by his parents in a BDSM relationship and he wants the same. Aubrey is a shy barista who is financially hanging on. William has been going to her coffee shop for a few months when he finally decided that Aubrey was the woman for him. This is a story of how these two came to fall in love.This author is one of my favorites. This book was not. She utilized a different writing style that I actually appreciate but this story did not seem to benefit from it. It was almost a clinical read. There was no warmth and fuzzy feeling for a sexual love story.The writing was beyond compare, as usual for a Paloma Beck book. The characters were also written well but they still missed that three dimensional pull.

    William wants someone special in his life and knows that Aubrey is that person for him. She really doesn't know much about him or when they first begin seeing each other. He's a dominant with a preference of domestic discipline and wants her to be his submissive. She has some major self esteem issues that he helps her deal with as he trains her for their life together.At first I thought that this was going to be one of those I am stalking you, kidnapping you, and make you love me stories. I was pleasantly surprised by this love story instead. I will warn you that their is quite the cliffhanger at the end of this one though and I am dying to see what happens next.I give Touch My Heart 4 hearts!

    A lot of credit needs to be given to the author were this story is concerned . William's story was so much more involved and travelled the story line so much better , Williams version was fantastic to read . It was great to get into his head to fund out what was going on with him . With the 1st book in this series you could really tell what was going to happen . Due to the girl just being skittish but with William you don't really know what's going on in his head . I really enjoyed this story and how it was written . There isn't much to say about the book that the description doesn't tell you . Just be prepared for the cliff-hanger ending . http://samsreadingaddiction.blogspot....

    Thanks netgalley for a free read in exchange for a review. I have to say the beginning of this book made me think that this synopsis wasn't going to work, but towards the end the story really pulled together. Aubrey demonstrated an innocence you don't even find with a five year old anymore, which put me off the beginning of the book. William displayed a sense of domination down to everything, even what Aubrey ate. As the story pulled together though they worked toward a better story with a more plausible relationship that I could understand. I have to warn also that this book has a really steep cliffhanger, but overall I gave it four entertainment stars.
