    1. 4 Seeing Beyond What's In Front of You Stars* * * * Spoiler FreeI just have to say This author was NOT a one hit wonder for me. Adriana Anders delivered an extremely strong second entry to her series Blank Canvas. Sometimes a second book in a series which starts out clear and strong can be just another entry with nothing outstanding about it. This was Not the case with By Her Touch. and I am so very thrilled it wasn't. Because Adriana Anders has a way of drawing you in from the starte will set u [...]

    2. Four and a halfI think we all carry scars of one sort or another. For some they are invisible , dark and unseen. For others they are present, bright as day and undeniable . Undercover agent Clay carries both, the ink and scars of his life so far and the ones that line his soul. Now hiding out he prepares for that one final push that will see those who have hurt so many finally getting what they deserve. George has such a need to help others but no one can help ease her sadness. Existing yes but [...]

    3. By Her Touch is the second book in the series, however, it can be read as a standalone. I have read book 1 and since it's based on a small town, you do see the characters from that book into this one but you will not be confused if you skip it. However, I would recommend reading both books, just because I really like this authors style and enjoyed both stories. They may have some triggers for readers. Main characters, as well as some of the side characters, have lived through abuse and real life [...]

    4. An emotional erotic story that digs in deep and doesn't let go. By Her Touch by Adriana Anders is book two in her Blank Canvas series and in my opinion better written than book one. Just as emotionally erotic, I really felt Anders goes above and beyond with her in-depth characterization of both hero and heroine, the joint background reveals, and the verbalization of their pain, and their individual issues with intimacy. The hint of mystery and suspense only adds to the appeal. A sure fire winner [...]

    7. 4.5 Stars'By Her Touch' by Adriana Anders is book Two in the "Blank Canvas" series. This is the story of Clay Navarro and Dr. Georgette Hadley 'George'. Clay barley made it out of the Sultans biker gang when he was an undercover cop. Part of being in that gang and also being tortured was to be forced to take a tattoo. Clay had come to George to get the really bad ones taken off. Clay finds George very attractive, sweet and total different than what he has been used to. George knows to that Clay [...]

    9. 4 Stars - 3 Flames I'm not even sure how to begin this review. I guess I'll start by mentioning that, although it's not a major theme in this story, there are some flashbacks that are dark. Not in a disturbing way to warrant a disclaimer, justemotionally hard to take some times. Especially once you start to really like the character.Much like the first book in this series, the story revolves around unwanted tattoos. Ink that was forced or manipulated on to the persons skin. Clay is an undercover [...]

    10. Much of Clay Navarro’s story is written on his tattooed and scarred body. As undercover ATF agent in a violent criminal biker gang, he has seen and done things that haunt his waking and sleeping memory. Hiding out in a small, rural town while waiting to testify against the gang and recovering from wounds sustained during their takedown, Clay meets Dr. Georgette Hadley, a dermatologist who removes tattoos. Forced on him by a brutally evil Sultans’ member, Clay has some tattoos he is desperate [...]

    11. I was a little hesitant about reading the second book in the Blank Canvas series because I knew the plot involved undercover cops and violent biker clubs. Not really my cup of tea, but I loved the first books so much that I finally gritted my teeth and started it. And boy, am I glad I did! The book is way more than suspense and not at all a damsel in distress story. There was real emotion in this story, redemption for both H/H and the women saved the day! So happy I read it. Looking forward to b [...]

    12.                   The Blank Canvas series continues in the fascinating Virginia small town with the doctor who removes tattoos for those who need it. Clay needs to remove his so he gets back to looking respectable, for the court case against the Sultan motorcycle gang where he was under cover. The gang members still not apprehended are trying to find him and kill him. Another team member has already been eliminated so Clay knows he can't trust anyone.Wendy Tremont King continues the [...]

    13. Some wear large and often ugly scars on the outside, others hide the ugliness that they feel on the inside with complex artwork on their bodies, visible reminders of moments they will never forget. Oh sure, a tattoo can celebrate something good and wonderful, a cherished memory, or even a ‘what the heck’ moment, but for Clay, these tattoos mark every bad and evil moment in his life. Evil that he sees every day, reliving it, feelings of guilt that override the pride he should feel in being a [...]

    14. This review was copied from my romance novel review blog: romanticallyinclinedreviewsFirst, if you haven’t read the first book in the series Under Her Skin I suggest you pick it up and start reading immediately because it is a masterpiece that needs to be worshipped. You can read my review of it here.Now onto the good stuff: This book will hold you spellbound. SPELLBOUND. I don’t know how Ms. Anders does it, but she is going to make you feel things that have you wondering whether you’ve ev [...]

    15. I just loved Clay in this story, he sure knew how to get what he wanted."I can't get involved with patients. It's completely unethical." say's Dr. Georgette, to which Clay answers "Okay"."You're fired". Lol. He really had his moments.Clay Navarro is an undercover cop who has spent several years with the Sultans MC. He's had to do unimaginable things to fit in and wears the memory of his atrocities tattooed on his skin. Now he's on the run from the club, his biggest giveaway is his tats they have [...]

    16. The first few chapters of this book, By Her Touch, were tacked onto the end of Under Her Skin, the first book in this series and boy, was that a sneaky thing to do. Because once I started the book, I couldn't put it down. And then the chapters ran out and I had to buy it and devour the rest. Yep, it was that good. I really liked the first book and this was no disappointment. I like some of the crossover of characters though I would have loved to see more. Maybe Anders will take pity on us and wr [...]

    17. Anders took my by surprise when I read her first book,"Under Her Skin", so I was bit more prepared as to what to expect when I started this book. I was so excited to see George's story play out, she was one of my favorite characters from the first book. (I was also pretty stoked to hear some more of Ive and Uma's story!!!!!) George and Clay fit together perfectly and I ran the gamut of emotions throughout this book, in the best way possible. I hope Anders next book is about Ive's sister, Jessie. [...]

    18. I enjoyed this book even more than Under Her Skin. While I typically avoid MC novels I loved the story of Clay, an undercover cop who's now more bikie than law enforcement and George is a former wild child turned dermatologist with a heart of gold. Their chemistry and their affection for one another was incredibly touching and hot.Other things I loved;1. The way Clay described George.2. That George had an abortion when she was 15 and didn't need to spend the rest of the book emotionally or actua [...]

    19. I'm so sad. I loved this author's debut, Under Her Skin, and was wildly excited to read this second book. Unfortunately, the characters didn't come alive for me this time. The story felt very repetitive and a bit one dimensional. It makes me so, so sad to say. Under Her Skin had such an original, gritty touch and story. Please give that book a chance if you haven't read it yet.This gets 3 Stars simply because I know what this author is capable of. I WILL be reading her next book and hoping to fa [...]

    20. This hero has everything I want -- emotional scars, a lone-wolf attitude, and all the brooding hotness of a sultry summer night. His interactions with the heroine --so completely the opposite--left me purring with happiness. :)

    21. A damaged hero who's easy to love, a well-rounded heroine, a distinctive approach to sensual scenes made this emotionally fraught romance a standout. Here's my full review: youtube/watch?v=jj-Bz

    22. From the first page until the last this book keeps you on the edge of your seat watching as the past comes back to haunt two people whose lives and emotions have been tainted by their experiences. For far too long they've felt alone but together they find a bit of peace and quiet from the storms of fate creeping ever closer to the heaven they've found in each other's arms.Clay was once part of a happy family until tragedy struck and took away his sister, leaving him vowing revenge on those who c [...]

    23. What an addictive read. Right out of the gate the book starts out with an intense battle of wills, pain, and betrayal. The first page pulls you in and this book never releases you. I started it before bed which is a mistake you will not want to make unless you don't have plans in the morning. Indian AKA Andrew Blane AKA Clay Navarro is a undercover agent who has started to lose sight on the mission. His biker's are like family, and although they have done some terrible stuff he still loves them. [...]

    24. "Give me a kiss," he demanded, and as she watched, he softened, his gaze running a tender path from her lips to her eyes and back again. "Please kiss me." Clay Navarro, rough and sweet, and very damaged. Working deep undercover has scarred him inside and out. When he seeks out Dr. George Hadley for tattoo removal, he has no idea the connection he will have with her.George has her own heartbreak that she has lived with. Her life may not be where she thought it would be, but she has convinced hers [...]

    25. Josie's ReviewThis book surpassed my expectations! The author has a unique writing style in which she turns ugly into beauty. This story is moving and so gripping. As with the first book I had tears in my eyes while reading Clay and Georgette’s story but the tears weren’t always bad.The prologue to this book was heart pounding. I knew as soon as I read the first paragraph that I would not be able to walk away. Clay and Georgette are two different people and yet so much alike. They both are d [...]

    26. I can pretty much read anything. As a literature student I have to get through books, even if I really dislike them. By Her Touch is one of the rare books that beat me. I just couldn't finish it. I should start by saying that this is not a 'bad' book. There are some interesting things happening here, and I applaud Adriana Anders for creating well rounded, conflicted characters. The problem was the pacing. This book just seemed to go on for ever. 400 pages was just too much for this. There were l [...]

    27. Even though I had a lukewarm reaction to the first book of this series (2 stars), the set up for this one had me excited. I looked forward to it. I didn't like it less than book 1, but it didn't live up to my expectations. Although book 1 doesn't have to be read in order to read this one - it works as a standalone even if slightly related- there is backstory in the previous book that could help understand some of the plot points. The blurb does a good job with the summary, so I'll skip it. I jus [...]

    28. By Her Touch is a lovely small town romance with a dark side. Clay Navarro and George both have their own troubled pasts and were good people. I was so happy to see George find someone who could potentially be the one to help her heal after being a such a self-less and caring person and losing her husband. Adriana Anders does an amazing job at combining small town romance and suspenseful mysteries. I also loved the little glimpses of characters from the first Blank Canvas book 1, Under Her Skin [...]
