I Liked It!
Tia Louise has done it again! When We Touch is a beautifully written second chance romance that has everything you could possibly want. Secrets, sexiness, drama, and characters you can’t help but fall in love with.
Ten years ago Jackson and Ember promised they would always be together and him leaving for college wouldn’t change that, but everything changed the day he left, and now he’s back in town and so much hurt is now between them. With so many secrets and betrayals between these two, and so many things put between them to keep them apart, it’s amazing that their connection is as strong as it still is. Neither of them have ever truly gotten over one another, but there is a distance between them, and Ember definitely has her walls up against Jackson.
Watching these two dance around one another in the first part of this book, and seeing both of their points of view, we knew that there was definitely a misunderstanding that kept them apart, but holy crap, when you find out the depths of betrayal and the lies that kept them apart, it angered me, and I was glad that these two were able to finally talk. These two definitely belong to one another, but there are so many forces, ten years later, still trying to keep them apart. They truly do deserve their chance, and each time they finally start to get it, something comes up. I loved Ember’s friend Tabby and how she forced Ember to be happy, and give her happiness a priority in her life. It seemed as if Ember just seemed to go with the flow and let others make the decisions for her, so she wouldn’t rock the boat, but as the book went on, she definitely found her voice again, and I loved this.
This book definitely had many twists and turns, and we got to see so many secrets and lies come to light from many characters in this book. Small town life is definitely in play in this book, and I fell in love with most of the characters in this book. Watching Ember and Jackson finally reconnect, and see the love they have for one another is beautiful. The lengths that Jackson will go through to keep Ember in his life now that he has her again is amazing. This is truly a beautiful second chance romance and I definitely fell in love with these characters and their story.
If you’re looking for a second chance romance full of sexiness, secrets, drama, and a bit of suspense, then When We Touch by Tia Louise is definitely the book you need to pick up!
