“Touch Me” by Tamara Hogan is a short, quick read at just 50 pages. This is part of her “Underbelly Chronicles” series – the concept is that an alien spaceship mixed with different kinds of paranormals (werewolves, incubus, succubus, sirens, vampires, etc…) crashed on Earth thousands of years ago & assimilated into the human society. They can breed between themselves and also with humans – which, since readers are specifically told that, should make us assume there are also some “halves-ies” in the population. In “Touch Me”, Bailey discovers that everyone she works with (save one other guy, Jack) are paranormals… and that she has been nominated to participate in their Council as a human representative (Carl Sagan was the first one – explains a lot, eh?). She’s given the basics of her new reality but then has to rush off to help her coworkers provide security for a concert – for a siren, naturally. Due to the pheremones she becomes overly…. excited…. and if I tell you more it will ruin this novella for you.

Anyway, short quick read. It was okay; had some humorous moments (like when she finds out about paranormals & asks if Dick Cheney is actually a vampire LOL!). I received a copy in exchange for an HONEST review so I really did not have many expectations, because I didn’t “research” this author/series until I sat down to write the review (didn’t want any preconceived ideas). I have to admit to being a bit irritated that this wasn’t a full “story” – it’s actually stated on her website that it is a “prequel novella” for her Fall 2013 release of “Tempt Me” (not yet up for preorder on Amazon). If you are invested in this series & need a “fix”, be aware that Amazon also offers this as part of its Prime Lending Library – so you can read it for “free”. It appears these books come out every year so this is probably a good way for the author to bridge some of that time.

First two books?

384 pages for $5.38 (eh) – March 2011

352 pages for $5.38 (eh) – June 2012

If you like paranormal series, especially with a variety of types of paranormals, this would probably be a great series for you to start. Interested take on who is hidden in plain sight (makes me think of ‘Men In Black’ where they have all the aliens up on the screen & J is realizing for the first time who is & isn’t human). Nice thing is that there are two long books already in “print” with a third on the way, so you would have some good reading ahead of you! ( )
