The Shatter Me Series by Tahereh Mafi

Contents Book 1

I hate being spoiled myself and that's why I will only describe the contents of Shatter Me.
Juliette has spent the last year locked up, abandoned by her parents because she is dangerous. 
She has not spoken to anybody and tries to stay sane when another captive gets locked in with her - Adam.
There is a bond between them and Juliette craves after being loved but she can't touch him as that would kill him...

My opinion

Tahereh Mafi creates characters that are round and highly individual and I feel like this whole trilogy depends on them. Their actions always felt plausible to me and never constructed or artificial.
The downside is that almost the whole plot is driven by the protagonists, which left the impression that nothing would have happened if the characters didn't do anything. Nothing ever happened to them. There were only reactions and no actions from the other characters and even the antagonists in these books.
