Touch Me by Celia Kyle
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
So, I accidentally read these books in reverse order. This book certainly would have helped me better understand book 2, as this introduces the world as a whole. In this future (?), there are people with abilities and the expected backlash from the "normal" population. Through all of this, Eric D'Amore has inherited the ability to identify people who are destined to fall in love. Unfortunately, it proves difficult to convince other people of his skill, so he's got to wrap it in a different package. Using the story that he is assigning "extraordinaries" to reward the normals that support their cause (and letting people believe he is part of some big bad council), he creates "the office of kink and karma."
In this other world it is totally OK to assign people to reward people with their kink - if you can't get over that, the rest of the story is a bust. I gleefully extended my belief and was rewarded with the story of Josh and Emily. Emily is a librarian who has a touch kink. Josh is the extraordinary who has fallen completely in love with her. Sure, society might not be accepting of their union, but these two have a chemistry that guarantees a great relationship to come. Oh, and the bonus of Emily's adorably overprotective family made this story even more fun to read.
