    One thought on “Touch”

    1. ARC provided by Net Gallery in exchange for an honest review.I found that there was some improvement to the writing in the fifth installment, but that improvement for me; just doesn't carry to the story. The connection to any character is missing and desperately needed. Grace should be somewhat pitied at this point. She is weak and easily manipulated and DavidDavid has to be one of the jerkiest males (Hero is not the term for this guy) I have come across. Although I doubt Grace will come to her [...]

    2. Short review for a short read.  I toggled between 1 and 1.5 stars for this installment of Marina Anderson's "The Dining Club" serial novel - "Touch".  Not very much eventful happened, at least not apart from what I expected.  Thus there wasn't any suspense when I saw the overarching events came to be.  It's not the worst written part in this series, but it's not only predictable, but a little lacking and redundant.  It does give resolution to one part of Grace's trial situation, so Amber an [...]

    3. ARC provided by publisher through NetGalley for an honest review.3 Conflicted stars At the third trial, Grace is determined to succeed even though she realizes completely that Amber will do everything in her power to thwart her. When both Amber and Andrew conspire to keep Grace from winning the competition with Amy, even David seems aware of what they are doing. But what is confusing is David's own response. He does a few thing that go against wanting Grace to succeed. He feels that he will beco [...]

    4. *Copy received through Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* "Touch" was easier to read than the two previous books of the series I've read. The part of the story I felt interested in was the doubt about the possibility that Grace is going to leave David for Andrew (let's hope she will). However, there were a few moments who bothered me in the book.

    5. I'm so confused. I don't see how David is a catch? Am I missing something? He's certainly NOT a charmer, he doesn't have Grace's best interest at heart. He seems cold and lack emotion, empathy. At this point, I wish Grace would see what a tool David is, and that the challenges she faces monthly are for HER and not for HIM. To me, it's like David is blackmailing poor Grace.

    6. Book provided by the publisher. Again it finished sooner than I would have liked, half way through a conversation no less Starting to become very annoying. I was hoping Grace would toughen up a bit but no she just goes along with what David says and lets him manipulate her. I understand he struggles to "love" but I think his attitude is completely unnecessary.

    7. 1 star.Touch, the fifth installment of The Dining Club Series, begins right where we left off and ends on the biggest cliffy so far, and has Grace thinking that she wouldn't be opposed to Andrew joining in whatever is planned for later in the evening. Which. Whatever.That's pretty much the way I felt about this novella's challenge. And the series as a whole. I still don't understand David's motivations--does he want Grace to succeed or not? He doesn't even know. He says things like this:"Remembe [...]

    8. This installment picks up right where the last one left off. Grace is set to begin her fourth trial and knows that it will be a tough one, especially knowing that Amber is enemy number one. Nevertheless, Grace carries on through the trial with a mixture of nerves and excitement.This story didn't grip me the way the others had. Yes, it had some of the elements of passion and expectation as the others, but I think it lacked on something I can't quite put my finger on.First, there were the twins. I [...]

    10. *This honest review is done in exchange for an ARC through NetGalley and Forever (Grand Central Publishing)Did you ever have so much pleasure that it hurt? Touch picks up where the fourth novella left off. Grace is continuing in her trials at the dining club to try and succeed at finding her spot at David's club. But we find David now try to self sabotage himself as he realizes he has feelings for Grace he didn't think possible. When Grace is set up by Amber and Andrew during her trial she finds [...]

    11. You can find this review at My Favorite ThingsTouch by Marina Anderson is the fifth book in The Dining Club series. As before, this picks up right where the last book left off.Grace is starting to believe that David is sabotaging her third trial. He is doing all he can to make it more challenging for her. This test is one of stamina and he's already pushed her to her limit long before the trial begins. Can she outlast Amy, who works at the Dining Club and has been through these trials many times [...]

    12.

    13. Part 5 of Marina Anderson's DINING CLUB SERIES is here and it does not disappoint. Grace and David are still at it and part 5 opens with the next trial. The trial does not disappoint and neither does all the scheming that's occurring behind the scenes.Grace's determination to succeed and pass each trial in order to be closer to David, to be able to fully and openly love him and hopefully receive the same in turn is being thwarted with every available chance. What do you do when who you most desi [...]

    14. In the fifth part of the Dining Club, Grace is entering her third trial. In this trial she is competing against one of the twins – Amy – who has a strong endurance. With experience, knowledge and strength on her side, Amy is the sure winner of this challenge with immensely delights Amber, Andrew and…David? Grace is fueled though by her jealousy of Amber and is determined to do what is necessary to keep David’s affections focused on her. David doesn’t play fair thought and excites Grace [...]

    15. The Dining Club is more than the name implies. It is a place to discover how far you are willing to challenge your sensuality and discover/expand your sexual horizon. This is erotica at its best.Our story follows Grace as she discovers David, the man she has fallen in love with, cannot commit to his love for her, unless she is able to discover and participate in the kind of lovemaking that makes him complete. The Dining Club provides a series of tests which will expose Grace to BDSM. If she is a [...]

    20. 3 out of 5 for this reader folks!Okay so I have not been very kind with my reviews of this series, and that goes against my own views on book reviews as I have the utmost respect for an author who lays their talent out like that. Yes, they do so with the chance of receiving negative remarks but I have yet to come across any book that I can't seem to find a positive thing to say!You know how I feel about David from my previous reviews, so I will not beat that dead horse, no redemption has been ac [...]

    21. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in place of an honest review.It seems that Grace has passed the third test. She just doesn't know what to think anymore. One minute David is working against her to make her fail and the next he is helping her. She also knows that Amber is wanting David and she vows to not let her win. Now Alexander is starting to start show his feelings for her. He wants her and hates the way David is treating her.Alexander thinks that he needs to tell Grace about Da [...]

    22. This was an ARC given by Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewSo, it goes without saying the lack of personality on David's end is disappointing. I've been hoping for something more from him besides beating his chest, and threatening Grace to leave when she even considers holding her breath at any turn. It's actually getting on my nerves that the only interaction aside from sex outside the club, is him basically threatening that they are finished if she does not complete the trials. Come on [...]

    23. Touch is the fifth installment in the series. David's feelings for Grace are conflicting as she struggles to surpass trial 3. While there are some similarities to previous installments, the reader has the chance to see how much Grace's feelings for David are being manipulated by those around her while Andrew aggressively continues with the scheme he and Amber have concocted.This is a very quick read but the stories are hot. I find David to be so cold that I can't understand why Grace fancies him [...]

    24. ARC received from Netgalley3.5 starsIt is time for task 3 and this is definitely that hardest one yet! Grace is to go head to head with one of the workers at The Dining Club.will she manage to pass this? Everything has been engineered for her to fail, people dont want Grace to passcluding David it would seem! But with all this comes Graces determination to prove everyone wrong and actually pass. She is hurt and confused by Davids response, one minute he forgets to tell her rules that will ensure [...]

    25. The series is heating up. It gets better with each installment. I do d it annoying that this could be one book instead of multiple installments. Now I find that I cannot find the next 3 installments though shows they are published. I M interested to see what happens on the fourth visit to the club and I want to know what occurs to vie for table 5. I am hoping Andrew can win Grace over because I do not trust David or Amber and I dint think David can commit long term. He has even said he knows he [...]

    26. Reviewed for NetgalleyUCH is a follow on from SEDUCE. Grace is a lovely woman, who wants to love and hold her man David. But David just has other ideas with this dark side to him. He wants to CONTROL, MANIPULATE and USE her. I am so frustrated that he is doing this. I feel like I want throw something at him. Amber on the other hand, I want to strangle her. She is another 1 who is manipulative and is out for Number 1. Then we have Andrew who is madly in love with Grace, but it's more than his job [...]

    27. Unlike my other reviews for the first four installments for this series, this book was much better and I was shocked. I was genuinely surprised because I was thinking here I go punishing myself again and reading this series. The writing is definitely more relaxed and no longer forced and things seem to flow naturally. The characters are more realistic with issues. I have to say I do not like Amber at all she is evil. I wish David wasn't so aloof and indifferent. I think his character really hasn [...]

    28. This book was much better than the last two, i felt the story was beginning to drift off and lose it's point however it just picked it's self up and got good :)We hear about the real feeling felt by all of the characters except the twins, Andrew is making his move and it'll be interesting to see what happens in the next book, David seems to be coming undone but there are a few books left to go so i feel we won't learn much more until towards the end, i still feel the need to scream and kick at A [...]

    29. I got this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest reviewThis short story still continues where it left off beforeGrace is on her third table assignment. she is nervous, but starting to get suspicious of David. Amber and Andrew continue their plot to make Grace failGrace main objective tonight is to beat Amy. they can take as long as they want and go as many times as they want. First one to say they cannot take anymore pleasure wins. Grace will start to feel jealous when she see's Davi [...]

    30. As Grace begins the next table, the dynamics shift significantly. David has to confront his feelings about her, whether he really wants her to succeed and the implications if she does. Amber and Andrew allow their personal agendas to interfere as well. I'm still not a David fan and am becoming less enamored of Andrew. It's also frustrating that Grace seems rather clueless and as much as she professes to love David, I can't fathom the reasons why. I need to be able to like or admire at least one [...]
