When We Touch (Whiskey Creek Novella) is the current eBook release from Brenda Novak. From the author’s website.~
Unfortunately, it's the wrong wedding. Olivia Arnold is arranging the festivities—and it's the hardest thing she's ever done. Because she should be marrying Kyle Houseman. They were together for more than a year…. But her jealous sister, Noelle, stole him away—and now she's pregnant.
All their friends in Whiskey Creek know as well as Olivia does that Kyle's making a mistake. His stepbrother, Brandon, knows it, too. But Kyle's determined to go through with it, for his child's sake.
Olivia's devastated, but surprisingly Brandon—the black sheep of the family--is there to provide comfort and consolation. The intensity between them, both physical and emotional, shows Olivia that maybe Kyle wasn't the right man for her….
But is Brandon?
I’m a big fan of Brenda Novak and was really excited to see she was offering up her novella for her new Whiskey Creek series for free. I have to say this story was an excellent start to a new series.
I absolutely loved Olivia Arnold so very much. I have to say she is totally a better person than me, because if my sister had stolen my boyfriend and gotten pregnant, there is no way I would be at the wedding, let alone plan it. Luckily, she runs into Brandon when she first arrives back in Whiskey Creek. She has someone who is on her side, since even her parents expect her to be supportive to her sister. Olivia and Brandon went to prom together and Brandon has wanted Olivia ever since. I found myself falling pretty fast for Brandon. He seemed to always get the short end of the stick from his family and be put in Kyle’s shadow, even though Brandon is very successful in his own right.
I’m pretty sure I’ve never disliked 2 characters as much in any book as I did Kyle and Noelle. I totally believed they deserved each other so much. Anyone who would cheat on the woman they dates for a couple of years with her sister, deserves anything he gets. Kyle and Noelle both seemed to have a major problem with Olivia and Brandon spending time together. Olivia and Brandon have a really strong attraction to one another. While they fight their attraction for a while, readers get some pretty sexy and emotional scenes.
The official release date for When We Touch was August 1, 2012 and can be purchased at any of your favorite on-line retailers. I’m not sure how much longer it will be available for free download, but know it is more than worth the regular $1.99 price.
