There’s a thin line between love and hate… and they’re about to cross it.
Becca Hartson should be used to moody men by now. She grew up with four overprotective older brothers, after all. But nothing could prepare her for the hostility she encounters from her new boss – the annoyingly gorgeous Daniel Carter.
Sure, his first impression of her was bad. She was in the arms of his brother, crying into his shirt. But the whole situation was purely platonic and Daniel knows that.
It doesn’t stop him from scowling at her every time they work together. Or from sending her heart into a crazy spin.
But if she wants to keep this job, she’ll have to grin and bear it.
Coming back to work at his family’s distillery after six years away was a mistake. Daniel knows it from the moment his gaze clashes with Becca’s. With her tumbling waves and soft smile, he knows she’s trouble from the start.
Daniel doesn’t believe in love. And he definitely doesn’t believe in falling for his employees.
But when Becca looks at him with those sweet doe eyes, he keeps forgetting how to hate her…

“Taste it,” he murmured. This was a bad idea. She knew it as soon as his gaze caught hers. She slowly lifted the glass to her lips. He held his breath as she tipped it back, her mouth parting to allow the whiskey to flow over her tongue. She closed her eyes, her jaw moving as she savored, her cheeks pulling in as she swallowed. When she opened them, he was still staring at her.
His gaze dipped to her throat, watching it undulate.
“Tell me what it tastes like.”
“It’s soft. Not too delicate but not too overpowering. There’s hints of vanilla. Not too sweet, just enough to make it feel like the whiskey’s dancing on my tongue.”
“Can you taste the almonds?”
“At the very end. It has a long finish. There are almonds and salt there. They’re sticking to my tongue. It’s delicious.”
“Yeah. It is.”
Every time their eyes clashed it felt like her skin was on fire. This weird, sensual connection between them was so much stronger than before. It felt like it had been distilled until it was almost overpowering.
Her breath caught in her throat, making her chest lift up with the need for air. Daniel’s piercing blue eyes flashed like there was a fire igniting behind them. Neither of them said a word – she wasn’t sure she could speak even if she wanted to.
There are moments when your body knows things that your mind isn’t ready to consider. When every cell in your muscles ache to do the one thing your rational thoughts are screaming against. Becca’s free arm slowly lifted up, reaching for him, her fingers desperate to feel the roughness of his jaw.
In an instant, his own hand shot up, fingers curling hard around her wrist, making her stop an inch short of his face. His grasp burned her, so tight it felt like a vice.

Tara’s 5* review
Omg!!! I have been waiting for this book since I started reading the Heartbreak Brothers series!!
“For a moment, she’d stared right back at him, her eyes wide, her lips slightly parted, her chest heaving in a way he was trying really hard not to think about. And he’d wondered if she could feel the spark he’d been feeling.”
Becca has always been protected by her big brothers. She’s always been surrounded by her amazing family, but she hasn’t really had her own life. Working at her dream job, and recently moving out on her own, Becca is excited for her new life. Enter her new boss, Daniel, who seems to dislike Becca instantly. But as time goes on, sparks fly, and Becca is in uncharted territory with Daniel. Returning from Scotland, Daniel has finally come home. But his guard is up, as anything to do with family makes him build up his walls. Too many secrets and betrayals are what Daniel associates with his family. Seeing bright and beautiful Becca makes Daniel feel something foreign, but he won’t let his past taint Becca’s innocence. But when push comes to shove, Daniel and Becca see each other in a different way and cannot help but fall.
“He hated her. He liked her. Neither of them mattered right now. Because whatever this thing between them was, it was making the air around them fizz and crackle.”
Carrie Elks has done it again! The Way We Touch is such an amazing read. Becca is the star of the book, and rightfully so. She’s always been supportive in her brothers stories, but now it’s her moment to shine. The connection she has with Daniel is so genuine. From their bickering and stolen glances to some heartfelt moments, their story is a realistic fairytale! Please make sure to read the whole series, as the Hartson crew are the kind of people we all need to know!
“He’d fight until he had no fight left inside him. Do whatever it took to be worthy of this beautiful woman with the mossy green eyes.”
