While Max’s biggest fear is being touched, his greatest dream is to be loved. Can he let Jeremiah close enough to heal, or will he turn away all that he wants for the safety of what he knows?
Max Eisner suffers from haptephobia, the fear of being touched. He refuses to let that stop him from living, though every second outside his house compounds his distress. Nor does it prevent him from yearning for that one man who will crash through those barriers and make Max his in every way.
Jerimiah Sandburg has watched the handsome man walk past his office door every morning for the past three months. Every day he has the same pained look on his face, flinching whenever someone brushes against him. Jerimiah isn’t sure if Max will trust him enough to work through whatever is bothering him, but he’s not willing to wait another day to claim the smaller man for his own.
Will Max listen to the call of his heart, or will he shut himself off once and for all?
Max suffered a traumatizing experience at the hands of an ex-boyfriend and has developed the fear of being touched. His past relationship left him with scars on the outside as well as the inside. Taking a job for a software company was suppose to be a new beginning for him but being around his attractive boss is just a reminder of what he will never have in his life again.
Miah has been plotting for months to find a way to get to know the recluse that works for him. He is unaware of Max’s past and thinks it’s simply that Max isn’t attracted to him. Miah is a good man who wants nothing more than to get to no Max and maybe spend some alone time together and see where things may lead.
Impossible to Resist is a sweet love story. Ms. Woods did an excellent job of telling a touching and realistic story in so few pages. This author has the ability to write about characters that leaves you wondering what will happen for them next. This was a very satisfying read that I would highly recommend adding to your collection.
