Review: Untouched by Lauren Hawkeye

Summary:

Alexa Kendrick has no recollection of the car accident that left her scarred and sent her life careening wildly off course. When the half-sister she thought she’d never meet shows up at her door with an invitation to a new life, Alexa finds herself in Florence, Arizona, a town notorious for being populated with more prison inmates than actual citizens…a town that has done its best to hide its own dark secret.

After Ellie is called out of town, she leaves her sister with the keys to her flower shop and Alexa finds herself swapping lives with her sibling: running Ellie’s business, living in the house left to them both by their absentee father…and forging a smoldering relationship with sexy-as-sin penitentiary officer, Nate Fury—a man with his own demons.

But arranging flowers by day and tangling with the only man who has ever seen her real self by night isn’t enough to silence the mysterious panic that fuels Alexa’s dark dreams. When Nate brings home a book written by an inmate, one describing an unspeakable crime, the shackles binding Alexa’s own lost memories begin to shatter. And as the devastating truth comes to light, she realizes that Nate holds the key to unlocking her past, as well as her heart.

Untouched was a quick and enjoyable romantic read! I really liked the two leads of the story: Nate and Alexa. The author made me feel an innocent connection to them and I found myself rooting for them early on. Both characters have a lot of trauma in their pasts and I found myself touched by how they helped heal one another.

My only complaint was the speed of the romance. I prefer a little more build-up. Although I wouldn’t say insta-love, they did seem to fall way too quick. However, I still thought they made a sweet couple.

I actually loved the setting in the book. I felt the small-town situated next to a prison helped add to the central mystery. My favorite portions of the book were Alexa trying to unravel the secrets in her family’s past.

Overall, Untouched was a great contemporary romance from an author who has a knack for descriptive, ethereal writing.

Rating: 4/5 Stars

Thanks to the publisher for a copy of the novel for review!
