An athlete on the verge of greatness.
A woman who hit the lowest point in her life and fought her way back to the top.
Twenty four year-old Kieran Stone, the country’s number 1 swimmer, has loved one woman all his life – only to have that love unreturned. He has resigned himself to the reality that when it comes to love, he will never be someone’s first choice.
Twenty three year-old Brynn Tanner, sister to the country’s number 2 swimmer Milo Tanner, has emerged from her own battle and won the fight. But to Milo, she remains his little sister.
Here’s the thing about fate – it can be a cruel master.
When Kieran and Brynn are brought together by an unlikely circumstance, it sparks an attraction that neither of them are prepared for, but neither of them can control.
Three fragile hearts. Two fierce rivals. One woman forced to make a choice.
How do you choose between the one you would fight for and the one you once lived for?
I love you Anne Leigh! You are a rock star! First you made me fall in love with a football player and now you’ve got me all crazy for a swimmer!
What can I say about this book?
It has everything that I look for in a 5 star read.
The plot is perfect and grabs you right away. The characters suck you into their lives and makes you feel a connection with them. The content is a perfect blend of sweet, dramatic, and sexy. I also love the fact that Anne makes learning about the life of an athlete interesting. She also makes swimming sexy! The story flows perfectly and it is really hard to stop what your doing and put it book down.
Now it’s time to talk about the story.
This is the story of Kieran. We met him in the other two books in the series, Love Unexpected and Love Unmatched. (If you haven’t read them yet, I highly recommend them.) I personally begged Anne to write Kieran’s story. He needed his tale told. Thank god she listened because he is an incredible character.
Kieran is a serious swimmer and is training for the World Championships and the Olympics. He lives his life for the swim. This is who he is and it defines him. He never thought he would find love and happiness in his life. Enter Brynn. She is the one girl that makes him come alive outside of the water. She is caring, thoughtful, loving, a true fighter and happens to be the sister of Kieran’s biggest rival. She is not someone he should be involved with. He wants to stay away, but like in any great love story, he can’t make himself.
I don’t want to give too much away but the story is so FANTASTIC! And their love story is AMAZING! And their chemistry is HOT! I don’t know what more I can say. Oh wait- the supporting characters are awesome. I see another story spin off – when you read it you’ll know what I’m talking about 😉 if you agree with me- please stalk Anne to right their story! 🙂
Here are some of my favorite swoon worthy lines.
Just then, I knew, without a doubt, she was the woman who made me come up for air.
I was just Kieran. A guy, who for once is his life was taking a chance on a girl, who was taking all of her chances with me.
Love is trying to find happiness, when she has found her own. Even when that is not with you, especially, if its not with you.
This book had it all! Do yourself a favor and dive into this book, head first, and let your heart fall in love. This bitch loved, Love Untouched!
