If we follow the laws of the Brothers, our sins will be forgiven, and they will take us with them to The Promised Land. All I have been taught is that I’m bad, shameful and a whore.
But, in the deepest part of my heart I can’t help but wonder about life. Is the way of The Order really the only way?
I listen to the teachings. I watch my sisters as they dutifully do what they’re told.
With every passing day I can feel my faith slipping away. How can I believe in something that feels so wrong? I feel like an outsider.
I feel like I don’t belong anywhere until I meet Liam. The first man to show me what love is turns out to be just like the rest of them.
I’m done putting my faith in men. I’ll save myself. LIAM Cults – I have this intense hunger for revenge against them.
Because of them, my sister took her own life.
Instead of getting my revenge, I get Mila. She changes things. But when I begin to unravel the secrets of her past that revenge comes back. I can’t forgive her for belonging to a cult. I blame her.
There’s only one problem, somehow that love I felt for her is coming back and my hate is turning to lust.
In the end I’m the one who needs saving.
My first instinct is to cover myself, but the scorching look in his eyes makes me stand still.
My conscience screams at me that this is wrong, but it’s quickly silenced by the sinner in me.
“Don’t look at me like I’m your ticket to the promised land, babe. I’ll only lead you to hell.”
Heat spreads through my body and tiny tongues of desire lick at my skin.
“You make me want to be a bad girl,” I whisper. My voice is hoarse with sinful need.
I want to feel his touch. I want to be defiled by him.

A Touch of Lust by Michelle Horst is the story of two individuals, Liam and Mila. Both of them have had to deal with tragic events as they lived as part of a religious cult. Both of them carry scars as they try to form a new life. Mila has panic attacks and Liam carries a heavy burden of guilt.
I really liked how this story started out. The characters were interesting and well rounded. I found it was easy to like them and root for their success. The steam between Mila and Liam is hot.
There is a lot of build up to the story and some new adult angst, which I’m a fan of. I can understand why Mila is so secretive but I wanted her to give in a little quicker. In contradiction, the ending seemed a little bit quick to me and should have been drawn out longer. All in all, I really did like the book. I liked the story line and the angst. This is a stand alone novel. I see so much potential for other stories to be a spin off from this book. This is a good read. It captured me from the beginning and held me in suspense until the end. 4 stars.
