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.

Review: When a book opens with a girl almost dying because someone kissed her and that the person that kissed her did it on a bet knowing that it could happen, you know the book is going to be quite a ride.

Knowing from the start the issues Jubilee has, makes things interesting. I mean for 9 years that one event kept her in her house.

Oh let me tell you something, I'd be the same way, if that had happened to me.

Enter a divorced man with an adopted son, who has issues of his own.

This was such an incredible story, especially when you have two characters that just might be falling in love, but can't touch.
