Four friends. Four college grads. Four people figuring out that life doesn't always turn out the way you expected. Brielle Reyes may not have post-college life planned out like some of her friends do, but she figures she'll work for her mother's home cleaning service while job hunting for something that makes use of her history and philosophy degrees. It'll work out as long as she doesn't fall in love. Her last relationship was a disaster and she has no idea where she'll be in a few weeks, let alone the rest of her life. Since the only guy in her age range she sees now on a regular basis is cantankerous if handsome client Archer Ward, she probably won't have a hard time sticking to that vow. Probably. Archer Ward likes very few things: illustrating as a somewhat-celebrated comic artist and his privacy. When his meddling mother hires him a cleaning service on an almost daily basis because she doesn't fully trust her son to live on his own with his disability, he's at first annoyed - even if his house cleaner is the most beautiful woman he's ever spent more than a few minutes with. When he realizes her dreams may take her far outside of his restricted orbit, he has to decide whether to stifle his interest in her or risk messing up her plans to explore if there's something more between them. Neither can deny they're growing a little fond of each other, even if falling in love just now makes no sense whatsoever. But how often does love ever make perfect sense?
 Joy Penny writes books, devours stories, and geeks out about everything from classic romance books to manga. When she's not working as a freelance writer and book editor, she's probably immersed in her favorite TV shows, period dramas, and anime series. She also writes YA speculative fiction as Amy McNulty, and one of her books, Nobody's Goddess, won The Romance Reviews' Summer 2016 Readers' Choice Award for Young Adult Romance.

Touch of Fondness (Stay in Touch, #1)
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Super sweet!

I love a man on wheels. Truly. Its sexy. Archer is swoon worthy. Brielle is a good character, kinda reminds me of myself and not sure why. Joy Penny wrote such a sweet tale. There's nothing I want taken out or put in. I stayed up super late to finish reading/listening this book.
The audio was good. I've never heard any of Susan Marlowe's narrations, so this is a first for me. I've mentioned in other reviews that I'm on the fence when a female narrator has a . . . I guess the best description is when a female narrator tries to be sultry and says everything with a breathy tone. Nothing against it. This felt a just slightly over done, but I still enjoyed it and still give it the 5 stars.
