Reviewed by Desere Book provided by the author for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book The third book by a fabulous author! This plot is even hotter than the books before. I loved every second of this one. It had passion like no other, love and intrigue and best of all one heck of a set of characters. I loved reading how Rafael overcomes his hardships that life has dealt him and made him into the strong man he has become. Even more I loved reading about Sophia.  She is the woman that all woman from around the world want to be, smart, funny, successful, confident and to Rafael, simply irresistible. The way the author smoothly guides you into the lives of the characters is done with such beautiful elegance that I was completely stunned that I actually felt like I could grab them and give them such a shake to wake them out of their “I’ll resist you mode”! Another thing I loved about this book was the fact that the author does not drag out the story.  She gets to a point and gets to it quickly, where as some Harlequin books take a family secret/scandal or scene and drag it on for almost 4 chapters, not this author she keeps your attention on every page and ensures that I never lost interest. Favorite Quote: “One of these days your going to believe me,one of these days your going to trust me”.

Rafael Chaves was a most unusual hero in Forbidden to His Touch. I had to hold my breath while reading the first chapters of this brilliant love story as is was so unique for this “tortured” man. He would do anything for Dante Turino, anything as there was an unspoken agreement between them because Dante had saved Rafael’s life, had given him a home. However, poor Rafael was tortured by Sophia, Dante’s daughter. Honestly, they were both tortured from the time they were teenagers, they both wanted each other but it was forbidden. What can one say about Sophia Turino? She had been spoiled all of her life by a doting father. However, she loved Rafael with her entire being and he broke her heart, each time she tried to approach him and share her feelings. In the end, in a fit of rage, she left her father and home and moved to London. Each time she tried to approach her father; he disowned her so when he died she returned home to California and the family business, a successful winery. Natasha Tate is an amazing author and she takes their journey to so many levels. For Sophia her painful journey of loving a man who refused to love her back. Her father, who she felt never, loved her. Especially during her adult years when she pushed herself so hard to make him proud of her, to notice her. Time and time again she felt the two men in her life, Rafael and her father, what would it take to get their attention? Leave? What was hardest for me to read was Rafael’s painful childhood and how much he loved Dante, the man who rescued him, gave him a new meaning for living. Raf was devoted to Dante and the winery and had helped to make it a success. Now that Dante was gone, he had to deal with Sophia’s return and her desire to work side by side with him and it drove him crazy. This part of Forbidden to His Touch was painful to read because Raf didn’t feel he deserved Sophia and Sophia, in the end, was determined to get the man she loved, the man who deserved to be loved. So, with that all being said, prepare yourself for tears and a little heart ache while reading this extraordinary love story; especially when Rafael bares his soul to Sophia.
