When physical touch is impossible, intimacy may become a powerful work of art or a devastating nightmare—but, above all, it's an act of trust.
Struggling writer Kelly Blake has a secret life as a sex tutor—it pays the bills. Celebrated sculptor and recluse Alexander ‘Lex' Valentine can't stand to be touched. When he seeks out Kelly's advice incognito for what he sees as his ‘self-abuse problem', the results are too hot to handle.
Kelly terminates their sessions due to her unprofessional behavior, and Lex takes a huge risk, revealing his identity to her at a gala exhibition, his first ever public appearance. After Kelly helps the severely haphephobic Lex escape the grope of reporters and paparazzi, rumors fly that the two are engaged, rumors encouraged by well-meaning friends and colleagues.
The press feeding frenzy forces Kelly into hiding at Lex's mansion, where he convinces her to be his private tutor. They discover quickly that touch is not the only road to sizzling, pulse-pounding intimacy. But intimacy must survive the secrets uncovered as their sessions become more and more personal.

Author K.D. Grace gets top marks for delivering a fresh storyline featuring a man who can't stand to be touched. He meets his match in the form of a sex tutor who has no problems using fruit in her demonstrations.
THE TUTOR provides sizzling chemistry between Alexander and Kelly. I was amazed at how well the author fanned the flames without the characters even touching.
I found Alexander's diagnosis of haphephobia to be incredibly interesting. His depiction as a troubled man was incredibly well done, easily conveying his frustration.
As Alexander and Kelly grow closer, clues to Alexander's past are revealed. They are thrown together by chance, but they both stand to benefit from private lessons. Not even a spiteful radio host determined to dig up dirt can stop their momentum.
From well-detailed interactions to the steamy interludes, this is a story that is blazing hot.
