Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance
After a family tragedy, former football hero Jack McGarry keeps the world at arm's length—a challenge now that his PR firm has moved to neighborly Fool's Gold, California.
Larissa Owens knows where she stands—Jack sees her as just another one of the guys. No matter what her heart wishes, Jack's her boss, not her boyfriend. But then Larissa's big secret is revealed…by her mother!
When Jack discovers the truth about Larissa's feelings, her touch suddenly becomes tantalizing, and he's not sure he wants to resist. But if he gives in to desire, heartache is sure to follow. Friendship or true love—will Jack go for the ultimate play?
- I first met Jack and Larissa in the previous book, Before We Kiss, and the tension between the two was obvious even then. Until We Touch amps up the tension and I loved it. I also really liked coming back to Fool’s Gold (as I always do with these kind of books).
- Despite the fact that Jack doesn’t want to be in a relationship, ever, he has such a soft spot for Larissa. It’s cute to watch him crumble and give in to all her different causes.
- I liked both Jack and Larissa and I felt like they complimented each other nicely. They had a good amount of give and take throughout the whole book.
- The ending came a bit fast for me in Until We Touch. I felt like everything was a bit rushed regarding Jack and his relationship issues.
Despite the rushed ending, I really enjoyed Until We Touch and I have definite plans to head back to Fool’s Gold in the future.
