Until We Touch (Fool’s Gold # 15) by Susan Mallery
From New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery comes the story of secret desires finally fulfilled…
After a family tragedy, former football hero Jack McGarry keeps the world at arm's length—a challenge now that his PR firm has moved to neighborly Fool's Gold, California.
Larissa Owens knows where she stands—Jack sees her as just another one of the guys. No matter what her heart wishes, Jack's her boss, not her boyfriend. But then Larissa's big secret is revealed…by her mother!
When Jack discovers the truth about Larissa's feelings, her touch suddenly becomes tantalizing, and he's not sure he wants to resist. But if he gives in to desire, heartache is sure to follow. Friendship or true love—will Jack go for the ultimate play?
I have wondered about the relationship between Jack McGarry and his girl Friday Larissa Owens. They hang out together, work together, Larissa seems to run Jack’s life but is there more. Well neither would admit it until Larissa’s Mother confronts Jack telling him that Larissa was in love with him. If she had just stayed out of things everything would have continued with no problems. But she did not and a lot of problems popped up. Larissa stays strong throughout but Jack falls apart. Look for him to slam every door to every relationship that is important to him. You can also look for Jack to be wearing a pink dress once he comes to his senses and starts trying to make amends.
Until We Touch is another great Fool’s Gold story. I got to visit with some characters from previous books and see Jack finally grow up. You can read this as a stand-alone. I think if you do you will want to read more about the people in Fool’s Gold. If you do there are 14 other books already written and ready to read.
Harlequin published Until We Touch by Susan Mallery in 2014.
I received an ARC of Until We Touch from Netgalley.
