#Educational and #Emotional – Touching Ed by Allison R Abbott

The blurb reads,

A moving story of love in later life
Touching ED is a great read for those that believe we get older, not as our bodies get bogged down with the age emphasis, but when we give up believing, in life, in love and in second chances.
A Truly Original Romance Story that Will Definitely Capture your Heart and Make you Question Things you had previously Taken for Granted!
How many times in life have you set out on a path and ended up somewhere completely unexpected? That is life’s way of telling us some things are just meant to be.
Abby will soon find out that life has much more in store for her than she thought.
Abigail is a 50-year-old divorced mother that has dedicated her life to raising her only daughter. Abby, as her friends call her, believes that she has fulfilled her goal, after her daughter made it to university. Life had become settled. Abby was happy with her lot and enjoyed what she had. Was she really, though?
Through unexpected turns and twists, her destiny takes her to pathways she never thought existed. After a lot of persistence from her daughter and a strange game of fate, Abby meets with Ed. A not that handsome, but also divorced, man, who although older than Abby lives an adventurous and full life.
Walking in baby steps, Abby does not know if she wants to start a relationship with Ed. He is kind and gentle and with that sparkle in his eyes when he talks about his dreams triggers Abby to agree to another date. One thing led to another and the dates became regular.
In the eyes of Ed, Abby finds a good friend and a man that lives to please her any way he possibly can. He awakens emotions she had buried a long time ago, and opens the doors to a new, fresh, exciting life, full of mutual understanding, companionship, and steamy intimate moments. He tickles Abby’s heart in many rather unconventional ways.

Is it a fairy tale? Not even close.

There is a dark secret that threatens to ruin this relationship. Ed and his struggle with a sexual problem called ED (erectile dysfunction) casts a shadow over them, challenging their intimate moments and threatening their love.
Will they last? Will they find a way to cope with it? Will Erectile Dysfunction take over their lives and destroy their happiness? Or will mature love conquer all and lead the two wayfarers, that life brought together under strange circumstances, to the land of the deepest, most sincere love ever existed?

A must-have book for all women in search of the true meaning of love and that have forgotten how to live or are struggling in a relationship with a sexual dysfunction. Life is full of surprises.”

Touching Ed


This book was so educational and great.

And to a lot of people, it may be taboo.

I’ve never really realised what it meant for someone to feel so strongly (I mean sexually as well) and yet not be able to emote that. I don’t mean an introvert, but a normal person who has dated. Ed is someone like that. And Erectile Dysfunction works like that. You can’t help feel bad for Ed because he does truly have feelings for Abigail. And you can feel Abigail’s plight, even on discovering about the Erectile Dysfunction.

We all have a tendency to believe the worst for ourselves. We believe we can do no good and that any reaction adverse to that is a failure on our part. It is wrong to assume the worst for ourselves but that is human tendency. And that is what I felt myself wondering when I read this book. It was so natural for Abigail to assume she was doing wrong and performing poorly and it was so natural for Ed to think he was beyond help.

This book isn’t one of those fact filled books to pull you down. But it was an inspirational tale of two people who decided to make it work even though things did not go their way. It felt very nice to see how something negative can be encountered by simply twisting your perspective of it.

I felt this book also reminded me in a way about how harsh life was to some people. We are so lucky to be complete and healthy but to those who have problems they cannot fix neither can they help, life becomes so much of a struggle if not with someone who supports them.

In today’s instant gratification age, I felt this book gave out an important message. I realised how important it was to be patient and more so, to never give up.

This is a short and sweet story and I hope everyone realises what it has to say.

My Rating: 4/5
