The Tutor The Tutor by K.D. Grace
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

That was definitely the something different that I was looking for. Love this story and it took sexy to a whole new level!

You know with KD Grace to expect the unexpected and The Tutor definitely carries on in the same vein. From a gorgeous cover, which immediately attracted my attention, came a story like no other. Seeing that one of the characters in this book suffers from haphephobia, following a childhood trauma, I couldn't wait to experience just how the two main protagonists would work around this condition.

Kelly Blake is a writer and moonlights as a sex tutor. Having helped many people understand the complexities of sex and all that it entails, she finds herself drawn in to help sculptor, Alexander "Lex" Valentine, who finds himself unable to touch or be touched by anyone without being sick or passing out. At his PA's insistence, Lex agrees to meet with Kelly and although drawn to her, he struggles to see how she can help his condition, without making matters worse. Despite a hesitant start, Lex soon finds that there are other ways to be with Kelly without actually being with Kelly.

Their working relationship and tentative friendship initially struggles but a public grand gesture by Lex makes Kelly's future take a dramatic turn as she finds herself living with Lex in order to escape the paparazzi. With an unbreakable bond, the duo start to find ways of helping each other and to alleviate their mutual sexual tension. Lex starts to trust Kelly and in doing so finds himself able to get closer to her until he forces himself to make contact with her, albeit briefly, and before he's violently sick.

I really enjoyed the voyage of self-exploration that Lex and Kelly find themselves on. They have both suffered in their pasts but Lex more so as he tries to find the answers that his nightmares are trying to direct him towards.

As expected with KD Grace's books, the sexual encounters are not of the norm but no less expressive or fulfilling for readers. Despite not touching each other, the emotions and sexual encounters experienced were extremely erotic and beautiful and readers will definitely feel the power of sight over touch.

This is definitely a recommended read if you're looking for something a little different.
