The fight for Supremacy is about to begin…
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 involved 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…
"As a writer, Ms. Accardo demonstrates an exceptional ability to make readers “see” everything that is happening. Her prose is fast paced, her detail is meticulous, her characters are believable, and her storyline is packed with tension and sprinkled with humor." ~ Rita Lorraine Hubbard, New York Journal of Books
“There are surprises, betrayals and moments so heart wrenching, I wanted to cry. Toxic sucks you in immediately and keeps you on the edge of your seat right up to the last sentence.” ~Jen, YA Book Central
“Full of heart-pounding action, suspense and emotional turmoil, Toxic is a fantastic addition to the Denazen series that you will NOT want to miss!”
~Mostly YA Book Obsessed
“Toxic will steal your breath and your heart and leave you begging for more. This is one phenomenal series that you DO NOT want to miss out. I loved every single second of it. A must-read!” ~Kayleigh, K-Books
WOW! This book rendered me speechless.
After two days of trying to come up with a proper review for this, I am still empty-handed.
Well, maybe not. I may have one thing to say.

More like a 3.5 stars, Toxic is the long anticipated sequel to one of my favorites books last year; it was good to get reacquainted with Dez and Kale in this fun, emotional sequel. Dez is back to her full glory, and now she has competition; Jade is here to try to teach Kale control, but she's als... ...more
i cant wait for this book. Kale is like a cute innocent little baby that i wanna pinch and kiss...
and finally, a "third party" who's a girl! i'm getting tired of the 2 guys 1 girl love triangle...
and is it just me, or is Dez really HOT in this cover? wow. ...more
All I can say is that this was SO worth the extra wait. Amazing sequel! Loved every moment. And Kale, so HOT.
Sad ending but major cliffhanger, so can't wait for the next book.
Plus did not guess the traitor, man that was a shock.
Full review to come later!
Toxic Review on K-Books
"Sometimes I can't breathe when I'm near you. Knowing we can't touch steals the air from my lungs. It hurts, and it's all I can thing about."
Woah! What a phenomenal and emotional book. I was so excited when I received Toxic, the second book in the amazing Denezen series,... ...more
I'm really digging this series. Dez is just my kind of chick. And yeah, she wasn't her best this time but give her a break, she had poison flowing through her veins for almost an entire book. She can be a little cranky. The situation with Jade wasn't making it any better. That girl is a menace.... ...more
Character chat with Kale, Dez, and Alex up on my blog + signed swag giveaway!
Ahh that ending blew!!! What a very frustrating and emotional ride. I need more <3 Kale!
Uhh..... I'm srsly not in a proper state of mind to write a proper review. I would just say.....
To the bitch named Jade
After reading the book:
Yeah, that about sums up how I am feeling. A proper review coming as soon as my head stops spinning.
"I love the way you look at me. There's purity in it and I don't want to ruin it."
Jus Accardo is back with the next instalment in the Touch series - Toxic, and let me tell you, it's better than ever and when you finish this book you will be pulling you're hair out because you want more...yea, it'... ...more

(Spoilers for Touch)
It’s no secret that I LOVED Touch by Jus Accardo. How could I not? With a tough yet vulnerable MC like Dez and the super hot and deadly yet clueless Kale, I was immediately hooked! After eagerly anticipating Toxic and... ...more
I really liked this book, I liked book 1 better, but this book was also great. The story was really good and I wanted to keep reading to see what problems Dez and Kale would encounter now.
I did liked the story, but I think the story of book was more action packed an fast paced. In this book there... ...more
Ahh! This book was everything I expected and more! After waiting and waiting for this book I finally read it this past Thursday and loved it. Touched was amazing but Toxic was even better. Kale and Dez's relationship is growing but everything isn't perfect especially when a new girl comes into th... ...more
Arghhhh! I'd like to give this a 5 because I really loved the first one but this book frustrates me too much. And the story is getting redundant. I don't want to tarnish the image of Touched and Kale for me so I think I'm gonna drop this after reading a review about the 3rd book. I don't think I... ...more
This Jade bitch, I hate her guts!! I couldn't even imagine how I would feel if a girl like her would be around my boyfriend all the time. I'd destroy her.
Other than that, this was a very good second book. Lots of action and emotion, it was very exciting! ...more
I really enjoyed this fast paced book and the bonus part (Kale's POV) as well but Ginger (Hello, the future isn't set in stone!) and the whole love-triangle aspect (Or this one was more of a love quadrangle...) were annoying a little bit. ...more
Lots of drama in this installment - but it was of the good kind. I definitely did not expect it to be such a blast. Book three, I'm on my way! ...more

Thank you to Entangled Teen for asking me to be a part of the Toxic blog tour (I'll be posting on November 1 an interview with Jus Accardo) & supplying me with an eARC of Toxic. I am very excited for this opportunity as I am a very big fan of this... ...more
I received a pdf arc of this book, in exchange for my honest opinion and review from Entangled Teen. This is the second book in the Denazen series, though there is a 1.5 novella called Untouched that can be read in between Bk#1 and Bk#2.
The cover on this book continues in the same colour... ...more
Last year, when I read TOUCH, the first book in the Denazen series, it left me anxious for more. This year, now that I’ve read TOXIC, I feel the exact same way and I gotta say, the novel definitely did not disappoint.
It seems with this series the books just keep getting better and better and har... ...more
Wow! I seriously fell in love with Touch last year and waited very impatiently for Toxic and I have to say, it was really worth the wait. Toxic absolutely blew me away! Filled with action-packed scenes and heart-stopping moments, Jus rocked my world with her twisted story of Sixes and the Denezen... ...more
A singular word that can pretty much sum up exactly how I felt throughout most of Toxic.
Let me explain.
AAAARRRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH! JADE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BOOM! BASH! KABOOM!
Those last three words? Yeah, that was me imagining smashing her head a... ...more
The wonderful thing about this book is that there are so many exciting bits it's so hard to put down. I really engaged with the story and the characters. But man, what a shit ending.
I was pretty sure Alex was unredeemable after the way the first book ended, but he does a lot to make up for it in... ...more
WHAT KIND OF ENDING IS THAT !
"worse to come" ... YOU CANT' JUST LEAVE IT LIKE THAT... great the wait for the next book just got a whole lot longer.
What can I say about this book, but wow great read. The opening scene.. phwoah so hot. If you aren't sure if you should be reading this book, just the... ...more
