Review of When We Touch (Whiskey Creek Trilogy, #0.5) by Brenda Novak

Thanks to the publisher, Harlequin, and NetGalley for the chance to read When We Touch early!

I loved Brenda Novak’s Stillwater Trilogy and Last Chance series – so when I discovered she was releasing a new series I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to give it a read.
There are four main characters, each very well-developed considering this is a novella. You have sisters Olivia and Noelle Arnold; step-brothers Brandon Lucero and Kyle Houseman.

Wedding planner, Olivia, always intended to plan the Arnold and Houseman wedding – she just assumed she would be the bride – not her older sister Noelle. However, while Olivia was in Sacramento building her business – Kyle was busy knocking up her sister.

Neolle has always coveted what her sister had – (1) Brandon took Olivia to his Junior Prom; Neolle stalked him. (2) Kyle and Olivia dated; Neolle is marrying him. She is a little nutso.

Kyle and Brandon haven’t ever really gotten along since Brandon’s mom, Paige, married Kyle’s dad, Bob. They have always been competitive; seems to be a pattern in Whiskey Creek – Sibling Rivalry. Kyle knows that he screwed up his chance with Olivia but, he doesn’t want to see her hurt again…especially by Brandon. Even though Kyle’s poor choices landed him in this predicament – I pity him. The author does an AWESOME job of generating real emotion within her characters – even the would be villain…Kyle. I absolutely fell in love with Brandon’s character.

Sample thoughts of Brandon’s about Olivia;

“Just one kiss, one taste, one touch…” 

OoooooOh Sexy!!!!!!
