Being over thirty is not an issue for Corey Paige. Being frigid and a virgin, however, is a huge problem for the only son of a newspaper magnate. No matter the risk, Corey's intent on resolving both problems in one go.

Enter Lucian Allard, a wealthy hedonist with a notorious reputation at club Boudoir—and an unconventional sexual mentoring program for those who suffer from dysfunctions. As the two men begin a sensual journey to awaken Corey's libido, Corey's frigid body isn't all that begins to melt. His untouched feelings also spark to life.

Though a family emergency puts a halt to awakening Corey's senses and desires, Corey and Lucian grow closer as friends. Then an unexpected kiss from Lucian in Corey's most desperate hour changes everything. Now Corey must decide if the program is still an aid or an obstacle to two lonely men trying to maintain a professional detachment but falling hopelessly in love.

At age 33, Corey Paige claims he is a frigid virgin. In his efforts to gain understanding, he finds himself in the hands of Lucian Allard, who is a hedonist.

Author Susan Laine creates an interesting story in THE SENSUALIST & THE UNTOUCHED. While there's plenty of steamy action accompanying the storyline, the focal point centers around the emotional rather than physical dynamic.

Indeed, the reader gets a backseat as the characters evolve and move beyond their boundaries to no longer requiring any labels. While Corey finds the answers he seeks, he also learns that in spite of their outward differences, he and Lucian are very much alike.

While many of the gay romances I've read have tended to be rather superficial in nature, Susan Laine demonstrates an unusual level of depth with the story as her characters explore their sexuality.

Ultimately, this is a story of exploration set against the backdrop of sensuality.
