When a Six saved Kale's life the night of Sumrun, she warned there would be consequences. A trade-off. Something taken for the life they gained. But Dez never imagined she'd lose the one thing she'd give anything to keep... And as if it's not enough Dez finds her immunity to Kale fading, the Six brought in to help Kale learn to control his killer touch starts drooling on him the moment they meet. Worse than that? Jade can touch Kale. But bimbo Barbie is the least of Dez's problems.
After Dez and Kale got away at Sumrun, her father lost not only his most powerful weapon but an important piece of the Supremacy project. Forced by Denazen to remedy the situation, he poisons Dez and offers her a choice--surrender to Denazen for the cure...or die. Determined to find a solution that doesn't involve being bagged and tagged--or losing someone she loves--Dez keeps the poison a secret. But when a rash of Denazen attacks hit a little too close to home, Dez is convinced there's a traitor among them. Jade.
Sacrifices, broken promises, and secrets. Dez will have to lay it all on the line if there's any hope of proving Jade's guilt before they all end up Residents of Denazen. Or worse, dead...

FINAL RATING: ★/★★★★★
After awesome first book Touch comes a cool short story Untouched, which i loved (because it was Kale's POV) and then we have the next book in the series Toxic..Today's star is TOXIC!!!!
Well, it's not what i expected or wanted. It was totally unnecessary. Seriously. Just read the synopsis and the last 3 chapters (33, 34 & 35) in which the main point is.
I was sooooooooooo sooooooo disappointed. I expected more of everything, not a freaking love triangle in which case the third wheel, aka, triangle no. 3 person is a red-head-out-of-hell-annoying-JADE-go-kill-yourself. Soooooo, this book was more based on the emotions between Kale and Dez, and also on fecking love triangle. The biggest thing that disappointed me was NOTHING REALLY HAPPENED IN WHOLE BOOK. Oh and the author is genius in confusing people with her characters, i don't even remember who Dax is!!! Really, i had no idea. She could have made a short paragraph of who he was/is to remind readers. But she just put them all in and you HAVE to remember who that person was.
P.s. cover is well done. It is Dez, when she changed hair to those colors. Yaaaaaaaaaay >:D
IF you want to save yourself of boredom here are the events of the whole book (save yourselves and read my summary):
-Kale loves Dez, Dez loves Kale(like we didn't know that);
-Kale can't touch Dez anymore, insert Jade in story(why the hell?);
-Jade can touch Kale, makes Dez jealous, and is reaaaaaaally irritating girl(Let me at her, let me at her!!!);
-Dez gets poizoned by Able, and Aubrey is the only one who can heal her, if she surrenders herself and Kale to Denazen (hell yeah);
-Dez says no (oh,so she does have brain);
-Dez hides it from Kale (why?you only made it worse, idiot);
-Kale thinks she is hiding something and kisses Jade (pissed me off);
-Dez rages and throws tantrum everywhere (as she should);
-Kale confesses that his feelings didn't change when he kissed Jade(i...get it?);
-Jade rages (finally);
-Oh, and btw, there is a traitor somewhere (maybe it's Jade, but it's not, i guarantee);
-Dez is sure it's Jade (because she wants to steal Kale from her);
-Jade is fishy (because she is a pure blooded bitch);
The list continues under SPOILER
(major spoilers begin)
-Kiernan kicks their asses (as she should);
-Kiernan is traitor and Dez's sister (now this i didn't expect);
-Kiernan reached over 18 years and survived with cure (could have guessed);
-From chapters 33-35, Kale had to go with Denazen, so Aubrey would heal Dez (cliche);
-Aubrey honored his word, but almost didn't(why did you heal her???);
-Dez is saved, Kale is taken and voila(poor Kale, really)--
(major spoilers end)
THE END = ANNOYED AND BORED TO THE CORE.
Really, Touch was soooooooo cool, i loved it!!! But Toxic was totally unnecessary. Still, i want this series to end so i am waiting for third book, yaaaaaaay :D (Do not disappoint me, please)
