Emerson Ray is trouble. Juliet knows it the minute she lays eyes on Cedar Cove’s resident bad boy. Forced to spend her summer before college in the sleepy beach town, she never expected to crash into the most devastating guy she’s ever met—or for Emerson’s blue eyes to strip through her dark secrets, and make her feel a desire she’s never known. Their connection is undeniable, but Juliet is torn. She knows, once she gives him everything, there’ll be no turning back.

Juliet McKenzie is dangerous. Emerson can tell from the way she blows through all his defences, laying bare the demons he’s carried alone all his life. He’s left a trail of broken hearts and empty beds in his wake, but Juliet is different. Her innocence is intoxicating—and the passion she keeps hidden, just below the surface. He wants to be the only one to set it free, but with every kiss, he’s closer to losing control and doing the one thing he swore he never would: fall in love.

One summer. Two damaged hearts. Their story is only just beginning…

I had no idea when I started that this was a novella-- and to be honest, I was mostly reading it so I could read the next book, Unbroken, which I've been eyeing for a while. So I wasn't honestly expecting much.

Because it was so short, I'm not sure that I can write a full review. I enjoyed this one, and I can't wait to read Unbroken. I liked that right off the bat, we find out that Juliet doesn't believe in happy endings and that Emerson has a conscience. It was nice to discover that.

I liked the Juliet and Emerson both had character growth throughout the book, and that they were so crazily in lust with each other immediately. I can't say that it was smart of her to run off with him that quick, but I'll let that go. I also liked that Juliet was so compassionate, and I enjoyed their alternating points of view.

All in all, Untouched was a good prequel to a book that'll should rock. (:
