“His name is Salvatore Rossi. He’s a vampire. And he’s my true mate.”

By not relying on anyone except himself, Salvatore Rossi escaped a dead-end existence and reached the height of corporate success. But just when he has everything he always wanted, fate throws Salvatore a challenge he can’t solve alone and a young wolf shifter comes to his rescue.

Since childhood, Yoram Smith’s family was certain he would grow to become Alpha and save their beloved pack from its slow demise. When the time comes for a new leader, Yoram is forced to juggle his duty to care for a splintering pack with his duty to care for an absent mate, and his own strength suffers.

Being turned into a vampire didn’t alter Salvatore’s life philosophy: if you don’t rely on anyone, nobody can let you down. But when the boy who saved his life becomes a man who needs his help, the icy vampire must find his humanity.

Belens Audio Book Review

Charlie David returns to narrate the fourth, and final, book in Cardeno’s wonderful Mates series. Many of the characters from the series also return for this installment making it a reunion for the reader. I love that there’s continuity throughout the series by using the same narrator so you have consistent character voices, which makes this even better to listen to on a binge with all four books.

I really appreciated the dual POV, especially with the audio, because by telling the story from both Yorry and Sal’s points of view the reader gets a better understanding of where each character’s coming from throughout the story. I loved the story, the characters, the cameos, and how everything eventually plays out.

I feel like To Touch You is a really wonderful ending to a truly entertaining series (even though I still hope this isn’t really the end).

“I’ll gladly give up forever to touch you.”

If you’re looking for paranormal stories with passion, humor, multi-dimensional characters, and terrific HEAs, I’d absolutely recommend this series.

I am an unapologetic book addict/lover. I'm happiest when reading and I spend most of my time with my Kindle, which is never far from my hand. I love to be told a good story! I mostly read fiction: Romance, Erotica, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal (shifters? Yes, please!), a little BDSM when I'm in the mood, and I love a good ménage story. I DEFINITELY PREFER A HFN/HEA! My biggest no-no's are cheating, miscommunication / misunderstanding plots, unnecessary angst, and cliffhangers.
