Review: Untouchable by Talia Hibbert

Reviewed by Caitlin

Unabashed Talia Hibbert fan here (I think this is the third book of hers I’m reviewing?) and Untouchable is no different. The Ravenswood series is fire, and this one is my favorite so far.

Hannah Kabbah was a nurse in small-town Ravenswood, until she smashed her sister Ruth’s dickhead boyfriend’s car the night of his engagement party to another woman. Now she can’t get a nursing job – with the record and all – so she’s stuck in jobs that have absolutely nothing to do with her education.

She’s a smart woman, but she struggles with depression, and it makes her… not great at some of these jobs. When she’s fired from a coffee shop for erupting at a customer, Hannah is very worried about her future. That is, until Nate Davis – her old school crush – comes in to town.

Nate Davis went to school with Hannah and always admired her. He’s a widower now with two rambunctious kids, and he needs help. Between caring for his sick mother and his photography career, it’s hard to get a handle on his two wild children. He hears Hannah needs work, and figures she can move in with him and kill two birds with one stone.

Well, obviously Hannah’s crush comes roaring right back, and Nate’s feelings of admiration grow into a hell of a lot more than that. This is also one of the best depictions of depression I’ve ever seen in any medium, period.

Nate is her boss, so there are some icky factors to be worked through, but Hibbert does a beautiful job navigating through them. At no point does it feel like Hannah wouldn’t have a choice, or that Nate is taking advantage of her. Other employee-employer novels I’ve likedĀ despite that fact; this one, I don’t even have to stress about getting over anything remotely problematic.

I’m very excited about the third book in the series, with Nate’s brother and the new girl in town (I’m assuming). The Ravenswood series is romance at its best. I would recommend to anyone.
