Love has no boundaries....
Jubilee Jenkins has a rare condition: She's allergic to human touch. After a nearly fatal accident, she became reclusive, living in the confines of her home for nine years. But after her mother dies, Jubilee is forced to face the world - and the people in it - that she's been hiding from.
Jubilee finds safe haven at her local library, where she gets a job. It's there she meets Eric Keegan, a divorced man who recently moved to town with his brilliant, troubled adopted son. Eric is struggling to figure out how to be the dad - and man - he wants so desperately to be. Jubilee is unlike anyone he has ever met, yet he can't understand why she keeps him at arm's length. So Eric sets out to convince Jubilee to open herself and her heart to everything life can offer, setting into motion the most unlikely love story of the year.

Too busy to read as much as I'd like, Audible is the perfect solution. I'm a romance reader mostly, but can stray into any story.
I loved the idea of a woman who was allergic to the touch of others. Her character was so endearing and true. I loved her. Then there's the single dad who is estranged from his teenager and also trying to navigate through raising an adopted son that is genius but also is acting out from losing his parents.
The whole premise is just storyline brilliance.
I loved the budding romance that is such a slow burn but when it got to the ending... I was lost. The entire story seemed thought out and considered until the end. It seemed rushed and not story worthy. Then it just ended and I was left feeling underwhelmed and not fulfilled. I just can't understand it.
The narrators were great. They all were perfect for their intended characters. Especially Candace. Her tone and portrayal was spot on.
