- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon.com: Kindle Edition - File Size: ?? | Expected Release Date: August 1, 2012 | Publisher: Mira Books | Obtained: NetGalley

"When We Touch" [Whiskey Creek Series, Novella 1] by Brenda Novak

My Book Summary : Olivia's life has taking one hard hit after another. First not long after she asks her long-time boyfriend, Kyle, to take a break so she can be sure of their relationship before they move onto the next level (thinking they were going to get engaged and then married) she finds out that Kyle has slept with her younger sister. Then she finds out that her sister is pregnant and because of that, Kyle plans to marry her. To top that off, since she is a wedding planner, to save her parents money she reluctantly agrees to arrange their wedding.

However, when she arrives a few days before the wedding she finds an unlikely alliance in Brandon, Kyle's stepbrother. As the wedding comes, together Olivia and Brandon find themselves rekindling an interest in each other they've shared in high school. Will they find that what they have together is worth fighting for despite everything? Or will they realize that this is just short-time spark between them?

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars, this is a fun & sweet novella that sets you up for what seems to be a great series! I could not get enough of Olivia and Brandon; they were just so cute together!! Then with the story of both their families ... it made it all the better.

However, I really hated Olivia's sister, Noelle, she was such a bitch, and Olivia's mother wasn't much better. Yet I understand why her mother tries to make peace between her daughters but I just didn't like how she always seemed to side with Noelle. =0/

Even so, I would definitely recommend this novella and series to anyone who likes contemporary romances. Or whoever are fans of Susan Mallery's Fool's Gold Series!!

Book Teaser(s) :
Despite the pressure she was feeling to hurry, she could only move gingerly. She made her way to the door before turning back. "Did Kyle come to the bar last night?"
He met her eyes. "He did."
"I thought maybe I dreamed that part."
"No."
They stared at each other for a few seconds. Olivia didn't understand why, but she couldn't look away.
"You could steal him back if you want," he said at length. "You know that, right?"
He was serious. He was telling her that if Kyle was the man she really wanted to be with, she could fight for him and would probably win.
But it wasn't so simple. There were other people involved. Not to mention the baby.
"I wouldn't want to hurt the people that would hurt," she said.
"Despite what Noelle has done to you?"
She sighed. "Yes." ~ within Chapter 7
