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.

Cadence Untouched

Both Zachary Webber & Lacy Laurel are new to me narrators. While I really enjoyed Zachary Webber's performance, I was not as happy listening to Lacy Laurel. Although her performance was flawless there was something about her voice that I just can't properly describe. That is more of a personal preference so other listeners won't have the same feelings about that.

After the intro to this book I spent the whole rest waiting to get back to what was happening. Because of this anticipation I felt like the rest of the book kind of dragged on. After finishing it, I realize that it was a great build up to book 2. It was the background that this couple shared.

I loved how they met, how they changed over that summer. So many people talk about summer romances or summer flings as inconsequential relationships but this relationship literally changed their lives completely.

Cadence and Fitz meet at a Music & Arts Summer Camp. Cadence's family owns the summer camp, and she has spent her summers running it all her life. Fitz is there as sort of a punishment. Hes to spend the summer volunteering at the camp, then he is to be married, all because of a college mistake. Cadence doesn't know Fitz's story, only that he is a spoiled rich kid as she calls him. Over the summer, their feelings for each other will change and grow. But at the end Fitz must leave her behind.

***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.

Such a sweet and exhilarating story!

Cadence and Fitz had something so special in this summer fling romance read! I loved both characters and their personalities. What I didn’t love was how their time was limited and their future was uncertain.

This book had so much emotion and depth. There were moments of laughter, sadness, heartbreak and lust. The connection these two characters shared was spectacular and raw. I can’t wait to see what happens to them in book 2!

Narration was good not great. I didn’t care so much for the female narrator’s execution of the male perspective/voice but overall the story was well told.

Wow - I wasn't expecting what I got!

I do enjoy the good girl/bad boy book. Cadence Untouched gave me that story but a bit more. Fitz is "sentenced" to work at Camp Riley and the owner's daughter Cadence doesn't want to get involved with the bad boy, but as they get to know each other it's inevitable they will fall in love. This book will bring you back to your own teenage years, remind you of your firsts; first love and first heartbreak.
The ending was a bit predictable but it didn't take away my like of the story. It's not necessarily a cliffhanger - but this is a duet and there is more to their story that I am looking forward to hearing.
The narrators - Lucy Laurel and Zachary Webber were great, they gave Fitz and Cadence a voice and I enjoyed listening to the audible.

Summer romance

This is book one in a duet and it took place over a summer. I found it enjoyable and feel like it left me wanting more. I think the author did a good job with the characters making them relatable. The narrator did a great job with this story. I think this book did a great job setting up book 2.

Sweet young adult summer camp romance

At first I wasn't sure I would love this story as summer camp romance is not my usual thing to pick up, this is a prequel to an adult romance book and I'd heard such great things about it I thought I'd give it a try. Well I'm so glad I did, it took a while to get going but the beautiful scene setting and blooming young love written by Dakota was stunning, she is a new to me author and I will definitely be reading more of her books as she has such a lovely way with writing characters and angst that I immediately loved Cadence and Fitz so much! I can't say much more without spoilers but if you love first-time love, fun and complex characters and a wonderful scene setting then you can't go wrong with this story. The narrators as always were brilliant and helped to add to the story telling and understanding of the feelings of the characters, I'm glad I listened to this on audiobook not just read the book. Can't wait for the next part of the story!

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!
