Publisher's Summary

As the go-to therapist at Elite Therapy, Dr. Hayley Sims is the best in her field. It's exactly why she's just been assigned her most challenging patient yet, hockey player Elizabeth Stone. Not because Stone's injury is complicated, but because she is intense to work with and needs someone to keep her in check. 

When Hayley's personal life starts unraveling and she realizes she might be developing feelings for her patient, she's torn between finishing her assignment and walking away to protect herself. 

Can Hayley get Stone back on the ice in one piece while keeping her heart from breaking?

Hard to listen to the narrator.

The story may have had some value to it if the narrator hadn’t been so monotone. It was very difficult to listen to. Try the story again with a new narrator.

Another Gift from Kris Bryant!

ok I'd give this book a 4.5 if I could. I love Kris Bryant and I absolutely loved "Taste", so I was patiently waiting for "touch" to arrive on audible. finished it in two days (in the car a lot). my only complaint was the narrator's voices for the main characters were sort of similar. at times I was trying to figure who just said this and that. the book was great, though! I loved that Stone played a sport! I'd much rather have an athlete as a character than some rich lady. in an office, or a CEO. In this book, I truly liked both characters almost equally. I liked Stone more, but there are plenty of books where the one character is uptight or cold and you usually like her a little less the rest of the book. this book starts with Stone, a professional hockey star who meets Hailey as her new physical therapist. they like each other, but Hailey is engaged to a woman who she's not overly crazy about. sparks fly. engagement ends, but Stone quits therapy... dont worry. they get together and there's lots of sex and by the end I wanted to watch some women's hockey. great listen! get more kris Bryant audiobooks :)

Good Story Horrible Narration!

I read the reviews before buying this book. I was torn because many said the story was good and hot, but the narrator was awful. I love a good story laced with the right amount of hotness so I bought it. The reviews were right. Nothing can ruin a good story like a narrator who seems to sleep through the story. She almost killed it for me. It was hard to tell who was speaking at times because nothing about her voice changed. And when she did try to make a distinction for Stone’s voice she really made it sound like Stone was an entirely different character than we had come to know, and not in a good way. Not sure why the author or someone didn’t pull the plug on this particular narrator and found someone who was more into the story to read it.
I also felt the obligatory static between the main characters was too shallow. I knew there would be something that makes a beautiful love story have a conflicting moment with the lovers, I just thought it would pack more of a punch in this story, or I hoped it would. When I found out what it is with these two, I was so disappointed.
What kept me going though, was the sex, the hot sex. Many reviews point that out so I’m putting my two cents in on that. If not for the steamy sex I would have 100% hated this book.
So if you can handle horrible narration and the boring ancillary characters, and enjoy some good, all out sex between what I made up in my mind to be two beautiful and sexy women...this is the book for you!

Good story, narration not so much

I usually am not into sports stories but this one was a good one, unfortunately the narration was boring, monotone and uninspiring.
Kris Bryant wrote a great story, well developed characters, but Brittni Pope was too bored to read it well... to slow, to monotone, no enthusiasm whatsoever.
Narrators need to know that it is not enough to have a great story when it is an audio book, a lot depends on the narration.
If ou are thinking of reading this book, read it and skip the audio of it...

Good. But, I wish....

The story was a good one. The characters were pretty well developed and relatable. The only drawback for me, sorry to say, was the narration. A nice sultry voice which was perfect for the romantic parts. But, there was very little, if any, change during regular dialogue or even between characters. There were many times I found myself wondering which character was speaking at the time. Even still, I would recommend the book.

Excellent!

I loved Touch by Kris Bryant. A great story. Loved the details of a Physical Therapists office, a women’s hockey team and an apple orchard. Just add love and romance and you have the makings of a great book. Brittni Pope does an excellent job with the narration.

Hockey Anyone?

Wow! Wow! Wow! I will never see hockey in the same way again in my life! I had no idea about anything about hockey!! What a deep story!! I loved it!! In-depth and real MS. Bryant pushes the envelope of emotions and arousal that is off the charts! This book is great to read - so with the read! Looking for more Ms Bryant! The reader was ok — just ok - the words did the rest! Excellent story!!

Book is awesome, narration not so much

All the characters sound exactly the same, and there was no way to tell when something was "thought" or said out loud. Story was fantastic and more than made up for it.
