Publisher's Summary

One summer. One touch....

Cadence Riley didn’t have time for boys - no matter how potent their smiles were. School and working at Camp Riley were her only priorities. She knew better than to fall for someone like Fitz Quinn, the spoiled, bad boy son of a wealthy politician. But the second he spoke to her, she knew she was in over her head. He was a gorgeous trouble maker with a cocky attitude. Her heart warned her, but she didn’t listen. There was something protective and good beneath the bad boy exterior that made her insides flutter. Before she knew it, she fell hard and fast. 

Fitz wasn’t prepared to meet a girl like Cadence. She was shy and innocent - and nothing like the girls who usually flocked his doorstep. How could he resist her mile-long blond hair and emerald eyes? He knew he shouldn’t want her. His father already had other plans for him, and a relationship with her could never go beyond the summer. He thought their stolen kisses by the lake were only supposed to be a summer fling. Falling for her shouldn’t have happened. But it did. 

Now the clock is counting down until Fitz has to return to the life that awaits him in Washington, DC. As September draws closer, how will they survive the end of everything they’ve come to love?

Not in anyway what I expected!!!

It was so much more! The bombs that were dropped in this book came out of no where! I though I knew what was going to happen but my thoughts were squashed into the ground with fury! I was completely blindsided and even though I was a bit "ragey" at the time, I now loved every minute of it. The wait for book 2 is going to kill me but it will all be worth it to find out what happens between Fitz and Cadence!

The narration is amazing! Lacy Laurel and Zachary Webber make a great team!

Summer Lovin’

Going in to a book knowing that it’s a duet is always a danger, but Dakota Willink didn’t disappoint in the slightest. Cadence was supposed to be spending a quiet summer. She has her schooling and the camp to fill her plate, but fate has other ideas in the form of Fitz Quinn. Fitz should be hands off with his penance for finding trouble. She finds it impossible to ignore his charms, protective tendencies, and hidden good soul. Fitz has a path that had been drawn up for him before he even had a chance to want anything else. He knows he should avoid the sweet and innocent Cadence Riley and just put in his time at the camp without a scandal. He finds himself irrevocable drawn to her even knowing it can never be more than a summer fling. Their life and love may be fleeting together, but there are just something’s worth the inevitable heart ache.


Narration- Lacy and Zachary brought these two to life. Get ready for chills as they bring to the surface all the feels that are so prevalent in this story.

Sooo Good!

Let me start by saying it took me several days to get my head around this book and be prepared to write my thoughts. From the beginning of the book, I had an idea of where the book was going to end but Dakota never failed to leave me guessing. I had a love-hate relationship with this book - don't get me wrong, I loved it! But I was so frustrated at times for the characters. I have so many parts of this book that stuck with me. I find myself recalling them and getting emotional all over again. The characters were easy to connect with yet so complex. I loved the chemistry and dynamic that Dakota gave us. I don't want to spoil the story for anyone so I will just say, I loved it and I hated it! But- Book 2 will be out in just a few weeks - which is perfect as I need some processing time. Can't wait to continue this amazing story.

Narration was fantastic. Lacy Laurel and Zachary Webber gave amazing performances. They were a pleasure to listen to and really brought the characters to life. Loved it!

Just when I thought I knew what was happening

Dakota Willink is a new author to me and although I have listened to narrator Zachary Webber numerous times, Lacey Laurel is relatively new to me. Cadence Untouched was certainly brought to life by the narrators who did a fantastic job.
This book was not like I expected; just when I thought I knew what was going to happen, boom I am thrown totally for a loop.
Despite herself Cadence Riley finds herself falling for bad boy Fitz Quinn and he is equally attracted to her even though they both know that it can only be temporary,
This book was not like I expected; just when I thought I knew what was going to happen, boom I am thrown totally for a loop. I really cannot wait to find out what happens in the second book.

Breaking my Heart

This is my first book from Dakota and it was so good! I didn’t realize it was a duet and now I need book two to see how it ends!! I do think however the heroine is very naïve and annoying at times and the heroine ticked me off a few times but overall you can feel the connection between these two and that is awesome. The twists and turns were so unexpected and I felt heartbroken for them.. I cant wait to see how life ends up for these two!
The narration is really good. As always ZW delivers on every single emotion! This is my first for lacy, it took a bit getting used to but she grew on me.

I love Cadence!

Ok. This story.. was a wonderful listen! Cadence is deep and very level headed. She knows what she wants and goes after it! I was not sure about Fitz at first.... he made me question. I was so anxious for the story, and anxious to find out what happens, and... you’ll have to read or listen to find out what happens. I will tell you, it’s worth it!

Fill Your Heart, then Find the Pieces

This is the story of Cadence and Fitz and their heartbreaking, breathtaking, earth shattering love. The narrators were PERFECT, the story line keeps you pulled in from the beginning and makes you feel everything from joy and love to heartbreak and despair. Not gonna lie by the end there were tears!
Dakota weaved a beautiful story of first love, being swept away by each other, and then the heartbreak of reality and the world crashing in. The characters are dynamic, and there are unexpected twists. I love that we get to see the romance unfolding from both points of view! Dakota does a marvelous job of dividing the story to get both sides without making the story feel bogged down or forced.
I would definitely suggest this audio book to anyone!

Good Listen

Cadence did not have time for boys but here comes Fitz and he changes her mind. They begin a slow but powerful romance for it to be only a summer fling. Fitz knows that he is not available but he can not resist his feelings. This book draws you in and leaves you anxiously waiting for more. Great Narration

Cadence and Fitz!! Amazing Story!

This is the first book in the Cadence Duet. This is a great introduction to Cadence and Fitz's story! The story is well written, captivating, and heartbreaking. I love Cadence, she is a great and beautiful character. Fitz is an intriguing character. I have a Hate/Love about him. His story is heartbreaking. The story ends with a cliffhanger. I can't wait for the next book in this duet, to know what happens next! Lacy Laurel and Zachary Webber did an amazing and an emotional narration together. This is a great team author/narrators. I totally recommend it.

Great Read

Cadence Untouched was a great read by Dakota Willink. Cadence goes to school and working at her parents camp. She needs to keep her priorities straight which doesn't include falling for Fitz. They only have one summer together but will that be enough for them. I loved reading Cadence and Fitz's story and loved how Lacy Laurel and Zachary Webber narrated them.

***sigh*** there are no words

This might just be one of my most favorite stories (no other words will do). Just wow. I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Dakota Willink just wrung me dry. It was such a sweet emotional story that had me just in my feelings. Cadence and Fitz have got to be one of the stories i most enjoyed.

The narration was on point. Zachary Webber and Lacy Laurel make an awesome team and gave this story another layer of awesomeness. All in all, a definite must read.

Loved it

The story took a while to get into but once I was into it I loved it! The male reader didn’t have a ton of inflection in his voice which bothered me some but that was my main complaint. Overall definitely worth the listen if you like a story with some good twists!

A Must Read!

I could not stop listening to this story, finding myself up all night listening! It had depth and so much character. The writing was so beautifully done, bringing the characters to life. Not to mention the narrators!!! They were just phenomenal and perfect for Cadence and Fitz. I cannot wait to get my hands on Cadence Defined as this book is just the start to Cadence and Fitz's story!

A chance meeting can change everything

This book is amazing. So tender and sweet and a great journey for young innocent love to blossom for sweet Cadence into true love. Fitz is a typical young good looking man that is used to having what he wants when he wants it. When he spots Cadence she is who he wants, that is until he actually gets to know her then he just wants to protect her. Especially from himself.

Fitz has so much more to him that he shows on the surface and when Cadence breaks through his walls she can't help but fall in love with him. Same for Fitz. Cadence is different from anyone he has ever been around. He has fallen in love with her but knows they have no future.

Lucy Laurel did a fantastic job as Cadence. Her voice was spot on for Cadence's innocence. Zachary Webber, oh my goodness I could listen to him all day. Yummy deliciousness as Fitz. Totally believable for both narrators. Lets not forget Dakota Willink, this was a very well written book. Loved it from beginning to end and now there is the second part to this love story and I can't wait to dive in. I received a code to listen to this book from Audiobook Obsession Review to listen and give my honest opinion. I absolutely loved it and highly recommend it. Just realize it is part 1 of a 2 part book but part 2 is now available.

opposites attract

Fair warning...this is book 1 of a duet, so you need book 2 to get the rest of the story.
College student Cadence Riley spends her summers working at her family's art camp. This summer, college grad Fitz Quinn is the typical rich kid...he's condescending, a playboy and just all around obnoxious. In lieu of a prison sentence for one of his recent shenanigans, Fitz is sentenced to community service at Camp Riley for the summer. When Cadenence and Fitz first meet, she sees the spoiled kid who just needs attention...Fitz sees a challenge. Eventually the duo become friends and maybe more. Remember that I said this is a duet? There's no HEA for now...I look forward to reading/listening to the rest of Cadence and Fitz's story.
I accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

OMG best cliffhanger ever

Two people by chance find romance in the most unlikely place. One is destined to marry another woman, and the other gives away her innocence. When they finally part ways she finds out she is pregnant. Will they ever get together? Can’t wait for book two to come out.

5 Stars!

Omg, this was such a great opening to the beginning of the Cadence Duet! While, I did find it to be predictable (on some things), it was still fun to listen to how the story plays out to the end. This will definitely make you run to get the next book to see how it all plays out. Zachary and Lacy did a great job narrating.
