Waiting on Wednesday: Close Enough To Touch

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that highlights soon to be released titles.

This week's pick:  Close Enough To Touch by Colleen Hoover
Due out: February 14, 2017

Synopsis taken from Amazon:

From the author of Before I Go comes an unconventional but beautiful love story perfect for fans of the emotional novels of Jodi Picoult and Jojo Moyes.

One time a boy kissed me and I almost died... 

And so begins the story of Jubilee Jenkins, a young woman with a rare and debilitating medical condition: she’s allergic to other humans. After a humiliating near-death experience in high school, Jubilee has become a recluse, living the past nine years in the confines of the small town New Jersey house her unaffectionate mother left to her when she ran off with a Long Island businessman. But now, her mother is dead, and without her financial support, Jubilee is forced to leave home and face the world—and the people in it—that she’s been hiding from.

One of those people is Eric Keegan, a man who just moved into town for work. With a daughter from his failed marriage who is no longer speaking to him, and a brilliant, if psychologically troubled, adopted son, Eric’s struggling to figure out how his life got so off-course, and how to be the dad—and man—he wants so desperately to be. Then, one day, he meets a mysterious woman named Jubilee, with a unique condition...

Oooo, what an interesting cover! I like how the words are made up of different books put together. I've strayed away from Hoover's books, but I liked one of her original ones (Hopeless). I hope you enjoy this book when you get a chance to read it!

Have a fabulous week. :)
