Love Untouched by Anne Leigh ~ Blog Tour and Giveaway


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?



“Kieran, are you okay?” I asked. I could have read his pulse wrong or I might have counted wrong but when the machine and my own count were synchronous with each other, then the patient must really be having a rapid pulse.

I removed the BP cuff from his right arm, pushed the vital signs machine to the side, and grabbed an ER admission packet.

His voice was clear inside the room. “My resting heart rate is50. After 25 laps in the pool, it may increase to a whopping 52.”

Why was he telling me this?

I stared at him for a few seconds.

He continued, “My pulse is fast because a gorgeous nurse is standing in front of me and she smells like vanilla... I haven’t had vanilla in a while.”

His dark stare burned through me, igniting a fire inside of me that actually had me struggling to find my next words. “Oh.”

He gave me a small cocky grin, his dimples slightly showing. I chose to ignore his statement. He was just another patient, right?

“Umm, can you lift your shirt up for me?”

He gave me a bigger smile as he followed my instructions.

Holy hell.

The muscles on this man were indescribable.

His shoulders were not bulging but they were solid. Well, they looked really solid, like rock solid, to me. I peeked lower, and saw his abs, striated with lean, packed muscle. If I had the benefit of pinching this man’s stomach, I was a hundred percent sure that there would not be an inch of fat. He sat up straighter,and I may have caught a sneak peek of the top of his dark blue boxer short with the words ‘Calvin Klein’ across the band.

“Do you need me to completely take my shirt off?” His voice broke through my dreamy state.

Yes, please.

This is my first book of Anne Leigh's and it was great, loved the originality of the story. I'm sure I missed a little of the back story of the previous characters that we get a glimpse of in this book, but it didn't affect Kieran and Bryann's story in Love Untouched. 4 stars

Love Untouched is Brynn and Kieran's story.  Brynn Tanner is the former roommate of Sedona (Kieran's best-friend) and she is a traveling Nurse with a feisty attitude, she is beautiful inside and out.  Kieran is the #1 swimmer, he's in swimmers training for the World Championships. Brynn and Kieran meet several times and have great chemistry and an intense attraction when together but there is just one big problem....Milo Tanner the #2 swimmer, Brynn's brother and Kieran's rival.  How does Brynn choose between she loves and could be her future and the other is her blood and has been there for her through thick and thin?

"There are many types of love in this world. Some we were born into, some we grow into, some we fight against, and some we fight for. Then, there were the kinds that touched every fiber of our beings; that we would wilt away without it if it were lost. Lastly, there was a type of love that we could leave untouched"

I loved this book and I would definitely recommend it. Love Untouched was a well-written love story and Kieran was smoking hot! Can't wait to read more books by Anne Leigh.
