*I was provided with an ebook of this book by the publisher via NetGalley, but my review is all my own opinion and thoughts*
“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…”
Eva: I really enjoyed Eva as the main character, she is pretty snarky and has the type of humor I appreciate. She has never experienced any kind of romance and just touching someone in general is difficult, or impossible for her. So it is really interesting to see how she transforms when she meet Zenn.
Zenn: In my eyes he is how a first boyfriend should be. Very sweet, kind and honest. He is struggling with his past and the way that is influencing his present and future.
The writing really had me engrossed into the story and the romance. The characters were well developed and had their flaws, they made decisions not everyone agreed with, which includes themselves afterwards. The plot twist tide everything together and made things more difficult for Eva and Zenn, but they tried to handle it together and the best way they could. I really enjoyed the ending and the fact that things worked out the best way. And I really enjoyed the touch of magical realism in their. But still the main character was looking for a scientific explanation for it.
I really enjoyed this story. Normally YA characters really disliked Math, but I really enjoyed it when I was their age, so I really liked the fact that Eva was good in Math and enjoyed it as well. Also I was really into the story, it is a really bad thing when you know you have to sleep but just want to continue reading. That was what I was dealing with while reading this. I was engrossed from beginning till end.
