Disclaimer: I had received a free e-ARC of this book for review via Netgalley. All opinions are my own.
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.
This was such a cute story. I normally don’t find these fluffy kind of stories interesting, but I really enjoyed this one. I loved the description of Eva’s ability, I loved Zenn, and I loved the romance. The writing was quite easy to get through, and I finished the book in a day. I thought it was extremely enjoyable.
The only issue I had was with the main character. She seemed a little full of herself, and was constantly talking about how she was not like the other girls. I do get it, being a Maths nerd might make you somewhat of an outcast in high school, but all the same, you don’t have to look down on everyone for that. I did not hate the main character by any means, I just disliked certain things about her.
Overall it was an enjoyable read which I would recommend. Rating:4/5.
