By Jax Jillian
Release Date: December 27th 2016
Jillian’s Touch takes readers on a journey with Nathan Long as he struggles to find Jillian, the mysterious woman who wrote him a love letter.
After a near-fatal motorcycle accident, Nathan Long has received a second chance at turning his life around. Battling depression since his parents were killed several years ago, Nathan feels lucky to be alive. With the support of his friends, shrink, and a new girlfriend Stephanie, Nathan feels ready to move on from the suicidal thoughts and reckless behavior that was consuming his life. But when he receives a letter from a woman named Jillian claiming to be the love of his life, Nathan’s focus turns to finding out who she is, and if she is in fact real.
When Nathan finally finds Jillian, he learns that the circumstances surrounding their time together are beyond anything he could ever imagine.
Once again the author Jax Jillian writes a beautiful emotion packed story that will make you cry while feeling warm and fuzzy inside. This author is the queen of feelings and love letters and she did not disappoint me with this beautiful written love story created within a tragedy.
There is not much I can say that will not give away this story so I will talk about how it made me feel. Sad, fearful, hopeful and finally heartfelt thanks.
As I read the story I admired Jillian for her dedication to Nathan and her desire to make sure he lived. Nathan struggled so much and at no time did he appear pathetic or not believable in his actions. There was a mystical feel to Nathan and Jillian’s relationship which does get explained further in the book but it works so well that the reader will start to feel pained by the turn of events and want so desperately for this story to have a happily ever after.
It was written with deep emotions and the flow of the story was executed with a beautiful finesse.
I give this 5 STARS and will always read any book by this author because she knows how to make me cry is such a beautiful emotional way.
My Reviews of her other books:
Jax Jillian was born in Albuquerque, NM but before she turned a year old, her parents moved east to Harrisburg, PA where she was raised. After graduating high school in 1995, Jax attended La Salle University (1999, B.A., Communication), Temple University (2001, M.Ed, Sport & Recreation Administration), and Central Pennsylvania College (2005, A.A.S, Physical Therapist Assistant).
She settled in Philadelphia, PA with her husband and son before she became a writer. Jax found a passion for motion pictures at a young age when she remembers “getting lost” in films, and that passion ultimately led her down the path to writing. she loves “getting lost” in her writing and particularly loves writing heartfelt love stories with a touch of tragedy which she believes is the key to truly reaching readers.
Jax is the author of Larkin’s Letters and Ryan’s Letters, two contemporary romance novels that have seen early success from reviewers, with both averaging 4.8/5 stars on Amazon and Goodreads. She is currently writing her third novel and aspires to write a screenplay one day.
When not writing, she works full time as a physical therapist assistant and as a mom to her three-year-old son.

Author Tara Kingston puts together a well written feisty female heroine and a rough well meaning hero that makes this book work in a spectacular manner.
The MacMasters family is introduced in this first book to the series and as a reader I could see an huge opening created for their stories in future books. Each character had fully developed personalities that will hold the readers attention. This book includes a little mysticism to the plot that enriches the story rather than taking away from it and it makes me wonder if the other books to this series will have the same theme.
I do love a book with intrigue and danger combined with love and this book does it to perfection. The plot is rich with descriptions of the tension between siblings as well as the sexual and personal tension between Connor and Johanna. The numerous villains are well thought out and keep this book from being just another romance.
Johanna was determined to save her niece at any cost and throughout the book her strength while being afraid was continually highlighted. I did find that there was a point that I wanted her to try harder for herself personally.
Connor’s dynamic character just held my attention from the first page. His take charge, give no quarters attitude though annoying to Johanna and his family was not annoying to me. It in fact intrigued me and made me want to figure him out.
The reader will be pleased with how this story ends and all the twists it takes to get there. I give this 4 STARS and would love to have you try this book. Let me know what you think!
