New York Times and USA Today bestselling romance author Lauren Hawkeye serves up a captivating story of loss, self-discovery, and deep-seated desire.
Some secrets are best left locked away in the past….
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.

Agonizingly slow start. When, at long last, you get to the meat of the story it is glossed over and rushed. Grammatical errors and misspellings make this story very hard to read. Not worth the $6.
On the edge of my seat...
I am a huge Lauren Hawkeye (yes, you can say rabid) fan and IMHO Untouched is different from any of all the other of her books that I have read.
It is truly amazing and let me try to tell you why. I read many different genres and stories with a mystery have always been a favorite. I like to try to understand or figure out what is going to happen, and then see if I am correct. I did not figure out the ending and it was because Ms. Hawkeye blew me right out of the water. It was a race to finish it as I wanted to know what was happening and I was SO hooked.
This story is so much more than “just” another book. The words seemed to flow seamlessly from the pages but we all wish it were that easy. Ms. Hawkeye put her heart and soul into this story and it shows; it is an amazing book and so very well done.
I loved Nate and Alexa. Their characters had so much depth that they literally jumped off the pages. And there were some shady characters that will make you root for the good guys; that’s what makes a great author – the quality of writing makes you fall in love with some characters and dislike others, all in one book!
I truly enjoyed this story and how well I believe it is written. I can only say to Lauren Hawkeye, "MORE, woman!! You need to write more of these.”
