‘Tarot’s Touch’ (Investigating Love Book 3) by @LMSomerton #Review #LGBT

Bethany reviews ‘Tarot’s Touch’ by LM Somerton (Published by Totally Bound Publishing January 1, 2015)

Why I read this book:  After reading book one and two I couldn’t just stop there.

We were offered this book in exchange for an honest review.

mateBlurb: Can truth be found in the cards?

DI Alex Courtney and his lover, DC Conor Trethuan are under enormous pressure as their team investigates an arson case and a murder.

It soon becomes apparent that the two cases are linked and the race is on to find a vicious killer. A tarot card is placed with the first victim and the detectives are left to interpret the clues it provides. When Conor receives a note from the killer making reference to another card, the whole team is shaken. Their worst fears are realized when a second body is discovered, along with another tarot card.

Conor suspects he has been followed then a hit and run leaves him injured. Alex wants nothing more than to wrap his lover up in cotton wool and protect him from the world. But is Conor the killer’s target or just a pawn in a much more sinister game? As the clues come together, it seems that the motive for murder might be revenge. 


ReviewAfter reading books one and two I knew that I would be reading book three to she what LM had in store for Alex and Conor this time.  And once again I was not disappointed.

I love the natural progression of their relationship and how they have to find a balance at home as well as work.  Alex is still very much a dominate at home as well as work, but he must realize that Coner is capable enough to take care of himself while at work.  Though all he wants to do when he thinks Conor might be in danger is wrap him in bubble wrap and keep him locked up safe.

Conor is still submissive to Alex, though he does have a tendency to make him work for it.  I have loved watching him at first struggle with the need to submit to Alex, but then how he grows to trust not only Alex to give him what he needs, but also himself in understanding that it is ok to submit.  It doesn’t make him weak, but strong by letting someone take control.

The balance between their relationship and the suspense of the storyline is wonderful.  The mystery doesn’t overpower the couple, just like the relationship is not the entire story.  Oh don’t get me wrong, the story is one that will have you hooked from the beginning, leave you guessing who did it.

I am so glad I had the chance to read and review these books.  They were just what I was looking for.  A bit of suspense, throw in some HOT Ds smexy times, of a lot of romance and love, that is a recipe for a good time.

I highly recommend this series, it is one that I know I will be reread often.  I hope we will be seeing more of these two.

Lucinda lives in a small village in the English countryside, surrounded by rolling hills, cows and sheep. She started writing to fill time between jobs and is now firmly and unashamedly addicted.

She loves the English weather, especially the rain, and adores a thunderstorm. She loves good food, warm company and a crackling fire. She’s fascinated by the psychology of relationships, especially between men, and her stories contain some subtle (and some not so subtle) leanings towards BDSM.
