"His name is Salvatore Rossi. He's a vampire. And he's my true mate."
By not relying on anyone except himself, Salvatore Rossi escaped a dead-end existence and reached the height of corporate success. But just when he has everything he always wanted, fate throws Salvatore a challenge he can't solve alone, and a young wolf-shifter comes to his rescue.
Since childhood, Yoram Smith's family was certain he would grow to become alpha and save their beloved pack from its slow demise. When the time comes for a new leader, Yoram is forced to juggle his duty to care for a splintering pack with his duty to care for an absent mate, and his own strength suffers. Being turned into a vampire didn't alter Salvatore's life philosophy: If you don't rely on anyone, nobody can let you down. But when the boy who saved his life becomes a man who needs his help, the icy vampire must find his humanity.
To Touch You by Cardeno C. has brought the Mate series to a close and this book was well worth the wait. Yoram and Salvatore were a special couple, meeting for the first time when Yoram was seven years old, the young wolf knew his destined true mate was the man his uncles needed to save.
As a child, Yoram was devilishly adorable, and through Cardeno C’s writing the precocious wolf shifter lit the pages with his straight forward sense of right and love. Salvatore, his destined mate, and turned vampire was in need of love and companionship which he found in the adult Yoram- who waited twenty years to unite with the man.
The flow of the storyline paralleled the other books in the series, with many of the main characters graces the pages of To Touch You. Ethan and Miguel are an integral part of Yoram and Sal’s life and added depth to the overall arc of the series.
Cardeno C never bores me with her witty writing and charm. To Touch You was a wonderful culmination to a very well developed and written series.
Narrator Charles David was fantastic! His voice delivered a beautiful rendition of To Touch You. I imagined the bright little boy meeting his mate for the first time- his new friend. Salvatore’s impeccable character and slightly holier than though attitude made me chuckle. Mr. David made the words leap from the previous written pages, as I closed my eyes and visited their chosen town. A tale worth the listen.
