    Great Read

    When you begin a book by recalling the events of a sexual attack of a young man by an older step-parent you know that you are in for quite a ride. Touch Me Gently is the story of a damaged young man Kaden, and his difficult journey to self-acceptance and through that accepting the love of another man.

    Kaden is the victim of a physically, mentally and sexually abusive stepfather. This creates a pattern of self-mutilation, no self-esteem, haunting nightmares and the inability to maintain a lifestyle or relationship, so Kaden wanders from place to place and from job to job. A difficult situation at a new job ends up with Kaden leaving for a ranch in Montana and taking a job as the cook. Logan Michael, the ranch owner and Kaden's employer sees the results of Kaden's life and find himself shocked at his own attraction to his young cook. With the help of his sister Shea, Logan is able to reach the inner soul of Kaden and help him heal his internal and external wounds while both men discover the healing powers of love and conditional devotion.

    In truth, this is an emotionally difficult story to read but so worth it! J. R. Loveless has given us a full plate with every page but combines it all together in a story that will make you cry, laugh and smile. You carry the life of Kaden with you throughout the story and ride his emotional rollercoaster with a sigh of relief when you can finally see that life can go on successfully and happily if you are willing to open your eyes and your heart and accept that you are worthy of all the great things that life can bring.

    Heartwarming

    As with all novels that deal with trauma, it can be hard to read, and sometimes the author writes about it from a distance. I feel like Loveless captured the pain and healing perfectly. The characters were realistic and lovely. Great story.

    Highly Recommend

    This would still be a love story even if the men never fell in love with eachother. Because it also talks about gentle love and kindness that as human beings we each need. Though the book is an m/m romance it's not erotic in nature: it's a very sweet, heart wrentching romance. I do warn though that there is some very descriptive details about abuse in the book, those parts were a little to hard for me to read but was easly skipped over without missing vital items in the book.
