The more I touch someone, the more I can see and understand, and the more I think I can help. But that’s my mistake. I can’t help. You can’t fix people like you can solve a math problem.
Math genius. Freak of nature. Loner.
Eva Walker has literally one friend—if you don’t count her quadruplet three-year-old-siblings—and it’s not even because she’s a math nerd. No, Eva is a loner out of necessity, because everyone and everything around her is an emotional minefield. All she has to do is touch someone, or their shirt, or their cell phone, and she can read all their secrets, their insecurities, their fears.
Sure, Eva’s “gift” comes in handy when she’s tutoring math and she can learn where people are struggling just by touching their calculators. For the most part, though, it’s safer to keep her hands to herself. Until she meets six-foot-three, cute-without-trying Zenn Bennett, who makes that nearly impossible.
Zenn’s jacket gives Eva such a dark and violent vision that you’d think not touching him would be easy. But sometimes you have to take a risk…
So I got this book from NetGalley purely because the cover was so cute. I’m glad I did! It was such a fun read. While this book takes place during the school year it feels like a great summer read. Smooth, sweet and just a tad nostalgic. There was nothing perfect about these characters, all slightly flawed in their own ways and it reflected into the relationships they had with one another.
I loved that this story brought something a little extra with Eva’s ability without making it such a crazy thing. I do wonder if in reality things would have been so quiet but not enough for it to detract from this story.
I also loved the reference to the cup of tea consent video. Ending is something I could really see happening as well 🙂
