Synopsis (Goodreads):
He Will Always Bear the Scars

Undercover cop Clay Navarro left the Sultans biker gang a changed man. Its ringleaders may be awaiting trial, but he wears the memory of every brutal act he was forced to commit tattooed across his skin. He doesn't have space in his messed-up life for anything gentle--not now, maybe not ever.

Dr. Georgette Hadley is drawn to the damaged stranger's pain, intimidated but intrigued by the warmth that lies beneath Clay's frightening exterior. But when the Sultans return looking for revenge, she finds herself drawn into the dirty underbelly of a life forged in violence...that not even her touch may be able to heal.
Thoughts on By Her Touch: This series slays me. It just shoves a knife in deep and makes sure to twist it around a little to really put the hurt on. Man, it's painfully AWESOME. Honestly, I've read all three books now and I can't decide which one I like best because they're all so wonderfully wrenching.

This time around, we have Clay and George. Clay's lying low as he waits to give his testimony after his undercover gig in a biker gang. He's...not in the best emotional place when we first meet him. He's trying to come to terms with some of the things he did while undercover and he's worried he has a target on his back. Given that he was very openly marked while in the gang, that whole lying low thing is harder than it would normally be.

Enter George, the doctor who can help him get rid of evidence of his time in a gang. The doctor he's undeniably attracted to after the first time they meet. On her end, she's kinda itching for him too. But the whole doctor/patient thing makes her throw on the brakes. Plus, she's dealing with her own personal issues that make getting involved with someone problematic.

I'm seriously SERIOUSLY in love with this series and how shattered these characters are. Their journey out of their own personal darkness is captivating and sad and I'm very, very glad we get to revisit these guys (in later books) once they've found their HEA to see how they're doing.
