For fifteen minutes each night a portal opens in Tamara’s barn and a horde of ghosts spills into her yard. She and Dex work together to find a way to help Cal and the thousands of spirits stuck in the void to cross over. When she learns she has the ghost touch—the ability to touch the ghosts as if they were corporeal—and she accidentally helps a little boy cross, she believes it might be possible. But not all the spirits play nice and when they learn they can sip energy from her ghost touch, they become greedy putting her life at risk.
Each time Cal has to pull her from the mass of ghosts, her touch restores him more and more until he is at danger of being stuck on earth—forever, which is very enticing to Tamara the better she knows him. Will she and Dex figure out how to help the spirits cross and if they do, will she be able to let Cal go?

First I should say that I was given this book in exchange for an honest review on ebooksforreview.com. I wasn’t too sure about this one when I requested it. A love triangle between a man, a woman and a ghost-seemed a little bizarre. This concept was just curious enough that I had to try it out. Tamara has recently purchased an old farm. One night, she notices that there’s a strange glowing light coming from the barn and to her amazement, hordes of spirits come out. Although fearful, her curiosity wins and she goes out to get a closer look. There she meets a spirit named Cal. Cal and Tamara quickly bond-although the portal is only open for 15 minutes per night. During these visits, it becomes apparent that she has a gift called Ghost Touch. When the spirits touch her or she touches them, the ghosts physically rejuvenate but when done too often-they become too solid and can no longer return into the portal and also will never be able to crossover. After the spirits learn of her gift, her touch becomes similar to a drug for them. This weakens Tamara and could to the point of death. Tamara is determined to find an answer on how she can help the spirits cross over, but is coming up with nothing. Cal has hinted that he knows how she can do it, but refuses to tell her. She asks Dex, a coworker, for help and he gladly accepts. Now Tamara has two huge issues: trying to find a way to help the poor souls crossover and her growing attraction for both Dex and Cal. (I know the whole Cal thing sounds bizarre, but it really is done very well.) She wants to help Cal reunite with his family that’s on the other side, but selfishly doesn’t want to let him go. And of course, there’s sweet Dex……..
Ghost Touch by L.A. Dragoni is a fantasy and a romance novel. It is also a love triangle, weird I know but it works. It is a rather short read but has a lot in it. A great plot, romance, heart break, thought provoking, great fantasy, and more. A young adult novel but I think adults would like this too, I know I did and I don't like romance but with the great fantasy thrown in there, it made it so much more exciting and richer. I received this to read and the review was voluntary.
