Emily Wayborn is finally her own woman.

After a string of shameful relationships and reckless partying with her best friend Amber, she’s now a successful voiceover actress, her wild past and everyone in it firmly behind her. Until she receives a cryptic voicemail from her former friend that sends her spiraling into the darkness she thought she had outrun. One thing is clear from the message, Amber is in trouble.

Determined to track down her friend, Emily follows a chain of clues that leads her to Reeve Sallis, a gorgeous and equally dangerous hotelier known for his power games and shady dealings. Now, in order to find Amber, Emily must return to her playgirl ways to uncover his secrets and track down her friend. But as she becomes more entangled with him, she finds she’s drawn to Reeve and his depravity despite her growing conviction that he may be the one responsible for Amber’ s disappearance.

For some reason, I always love listening to audiobooks that I’ve already read as a book, especially when I loved reading the book. First Touch was phenomenal, so when I had the chance to listen to it in audio, I couldn’t wait to! And wow, it was just as good, if not better, listening to Emily’s story this time around. It was just as hot and suspenseful – the narrator did a fantastic job voicing Emily!

Emily and Amber were best friends who lived quite the unconventional and disturbing life. But they split ways years ago, and Emily hasn’t heard from Amber since – until now. When Emily receives a voicemail and hears Amber saying their safe code, Emily knows her former best friend is in danger. Amber could be alive or dead, but either way, Emily does whatever she can to find out what happened to her. And the main suspect in Emily’s investigation is the enigmatic, playboy billionaire Reeve Sallis. Reeve is sexy and dangerous, and even though Emily goes to him with a hidden agenda, she can’t resist falling for him. The visceral connection between the two of them is erotic and the chemistry powerful, but when their whole relationship is built on lies and secrets, can they actually have a life together? Or will those secrets and lies – Amber – tear them apart?

Listening to First Touch was thrilling, addicting, and suspenseful, but Ava Erickson’s narration made it all the better. Her voice is amazing to listen to, very smooth and articulate. Seriously, listen to the excerpt below and tell me you don’t enjoy her voice! I do wish she went a little deeper when voicing the male dialogue, but otherwise, she was perfect as Emily. I’m definitely going to go looking for other audiobooks she narrates.

I wasn’t let down by First Touch in audio. It had a gripping story with a spot-on narrator. I’m definitely looking forward to when the sequel will be out in audio, hopefully with the same narrator. If you’re a fan of Laurelin Paige or romances with mystery and suspense, I highly recommend spending your credit on this audiobook! Just fair warning, there’s a cliffhanger at the end! 😉
