Just One Touch
Black Alcove series
Author: Jami Wagner
Reading Level: New Adult
Release Date: April 26th 2016
Secrets … they’re risky business.
Conner Brian was kept in the dark about being a father, so he isn’t a fan of people who aren't truthful. Now, with a four-year-old son, he’s adjusting to life as a dad. He’s getting along with his son’s mother, working at the Black Alcove bar, and he’s ready for classes in the fall. Life is good.
Alexis Parker has finally taken a leap of faith to meet her brother. Only he doesn’t know it. Terrified of rejection but determined to reunite with the only family she has left, she keeps the reason behind her move to Wind Valley to herself. She isn’t going to allow her past to steal her happiness any longer.
When Alexis moves into the apartment across from Conner, they both soon realize how pieces of their own lives affect the other. But even though their connection feels real, some things are better left unshared.
Her secret could break a promise he’s made to a friend and his secret could break her. If Conner and Alexis can’t trust in each other, they’ll be hurting more than just themselves. A fun New Adult romance, Just One Touch fills your heart with love and tests the power of trust.
Conner’s door is ajar. I hesitantly take a step toward it, rethinking skipping out on dinner since he clearly cooked, when the very guy himself comes through the building’s front door instead of his own. He’s caught off guard to find me standing in my doorway.
“Hey,” he says with such a lazy grin that I find myself smiling back too. “Were you looking for me?” He’s wearing a simple gray pair of sweats and a plain t-shirt. Sans shoes.
“Yes, I was actually just going to step out for some groceries when it occurred to me that I don’t know where the closest store is.”
His chuckle is deep as he closes the door behind him. “Well, there is actually a place within walking distance, but it’s getting late and they don’t stay open past 10. If you leave now you’ll probably make it just fine, but you’d miss the awesome dinner I made.”
I feel his hot gaze wash over me as he steps around me. “I made pasta. How about we eat dinner tonight and then tomorrow we can go to the store?”
“Yeah,” he answers, walking into his apartment. He starts talking again, which means I have to follow him inside. “I need to go to the store too. So if I need to go and you need to go, we could go at the same time.” He pauses to look over his shoulder as he pulls garlic bread out of the oven. “Unless, of course, you don’t like to grocery shop with other people.”
“I guess there’s nothing wrong with that, but what makes you so sure you’ll want to hang out with me again after tonight? I mean, I could be crazy and you’re only minutes away from finding that out.”
Pulling two plates from his cupboard, he flashes me a grin that warms my cheeks instantly. “What type of crazy are you talking about?”
Although he makes me nervous, it’s as though my mind and lips have their own plan.
“What kind of crazy can you handle?”
