Clear some time before it’s even beach-read season, because you’ll want to devour this new, compulsively readable romance in big, satisfying chunks.
Close Enough to Touch is the story of Jubilee Jenkins, a young woman with a rare medical condition—she’s allergic to human touch—who is forced to leave behind her reclusive existence when her mother dies.
From this premise, author Colleen Oakley spins a yarn with all the feels: Hope, when Jubilee gets a job at the local library. Desire, when she meets a divorced dad who is struggling with his brilliant but troubled adopted son. And fear, when she’s torn between protecting her own safety and fulfilling the need for a meaningful connection.
You’ll fly through the pages, cheering on this heroine as she moves beyond reading love stories to living one of her own.
