KU Sunday Spotlight by KUBR + OCA

It’s time again for the KU Sunday Spotlight, brought to you by KU Book Reviews + the 1-Click Addict Support Group. This week, I revisited a story I read in anthology, and fell in love all over again. Enjoy!


“If I was the kind of guy who talked to people, I’d talk to you.”

A couple of years ago, I read my first Brenda Rothert story. It was called Healing Touch, and it appeared in the Night Shift Anthology. It surprised me then how much I loved it—so much so that I commented many, many times that I wanted more of Joss + Carson.

HTcover-683x1024Well, it’s been a while, but that more I was hoping for is finally here. And it’s wonderful.

This was a one-sitting read for me. Like the first time I met this couple, I was instantly drawn to their chemistry. I loved—then and now—that Carson was wounded, gruff and sweet, just as I loved—then and now—that Joss was bruised, insecure and kind. They worked together {literally and in the these two souls match kinda way}, and now that their story has grown, they worked together even more.

The maturity in Healing Touch kind of wowed me. Ms. Rothert crafted a story that felt real—like a roller coaster complete with misunderstandings and miscommunications—and she did it in a way that felt natural. Not overwhelmingly angsty but authentic. It tugged on my heart without making it implode, and that’s just the way I like it.

Because it allowed me to feel this story. I smiled and swooned—oof, Carson—and I ached and angered. But mostly, I was simply unable to put it down, to walk away without knowing what happened next for this couple I fell for so long ago—but who I haven’t yet forgotten, and am unlikely ever to.

“You only live once, right?”
“That’s true,” he said softly, “but I kind of feel like I came alive again when I met you.”

As of 08.12.2018, Healing Touch is available with Kindle Unlimited.
