Leagh's Review: Undone by Her Tender Touch by Maya Banks

Pippa Laingley should have known better. When an unplanned evening of passion with Cameron Hollingsworth results in unplanned pregnancy, she's at a crossroads. She knew going in that the enigmatic entrepreneur had built a fortress around his feelings. What she's just discovered is that he's loved and lost before—wife and child. Tragically. 

Now Cam stands to lose it all again. If he lets Pippa get too close. If he pushes her away with loveless arrangements of financial support. Either way, he's doomed…unless he can let himself love again.
Pregnancy & Passion: When irresistible tycoons face the consequences of temptation…

Cam and Pippa’s story is one of emotion, honesty, and courage.  It is a story that will suck you in and keep you reading until the very last pages. 
We have met Cam a few times throughout the series and he has always been the quiet one. You could tell that he had a secret and it was tearing him up inside. He is the fourth of the friends that are partners and the last to find his happily ever after.  Pippa is the best friend of Ashley who we met in TEMPTED BY HER INNOCENT KISS. She is a baker/caterer and is working on setting up her store. When as unexpected pregnancy turns her world upside down she has no choice but to accept Cam’s help. He is hot and cold the entire time. His actions show he cares, his words say he doesn’t. Can Pippa keep up with his mood swings or is it going to be too much and push her to walk away?
 I thought Pippa was an extremely strong woman. She was not afraid to back down, and speak her mind and that was very refreshing in this story. Throughout the story she seemed to lose some of herself and she started caving and giving in too easily. It didn’t really fit her personality but it just goes to show that when a person is emotionally down, it is hard to hang on to your true self.
Cam is damaged so badly that it is controlling his life. Every decision he makes, every action he performs is based on a past experience. He is a very gently, sweet, and generous man but is afraid to let anyone in. He pulls Pippa in and then pushes her away when she gets too close.  It is very frustrating to watch him. Throughout the whole book I just wanted to reach in and smack some sense into him but I had faith that Pippa was gonna get the job done. 
The two of them have chemistry that threatens to burn the house down. They are absolutely perfect for each other but are having a terrible time finding common ground.  When that actually happens is so heart wrenching that you can’t help but feel for them. This is a great all around story with exceptional characters, a riveting plot, and an ending that will make your heart melt. 
The perfect ending to an amazing series. A definite must read!!!
