Except there's something off with Kale. He wears her shoes in the shower, is overly fascinated with things like DVDs and vases, and acts like she'll turn to dust if he touches her.

Kale has been a prisoner of Denazen Corporation--
A secret Kale will kill to protect.
Praise for Touch:
★★★★½ stars, RT Top Pick. "Accardo's debut, first in the Denazen series, is infused with pulse-pounding action, attitude, charm, romance, suspense and enough witty dialogue to crown it one of the best YA novels of the year."
~Diane Morasco, RT Book Reviews
"Memorable characters, heart pounding action, and sizzling hot romance - Touch has it all!"
~Jennifer L. Armentrout, Author of Half-Blood
"Raw and emotional; just like it's heroine, Touch packs a mean right hook. Jus Accardo's action-packed debut is sure to win her a legion of fans." ~Inara Scott, award-winning author of The Candidates and The Marked --book cover
“This is one of those books that you'll not put down. And when you're done, you'll need more. I'm now a Touch superfan. Just saying. If you haven't bought this book, you're so missing out. And if and when it makes it to the big screen, I'll be able to say, "See, told you it was that good."
“...start to finish Touch was one of the finest pieces of young adult genre literature that I’ve had the honor of reading.”
“It. Blew. Me. Away.”
"I'm seriously blown away over the way people are responding to Touch, says Jus from her home on the east coast. The Denazon novel has sold translation rights to France in a three book deal, and Jus is also contracted for two additional novellas with Entangled Publishing.
