Publisher's Summary

He was the best thing that ever happened to him...in the worst way.

West Balkany lived his life by one rule: make your own luck. And that means fighting his slum lord when his building starts falling apart, forcing himself to finish school no matter how much he wants to quit, and most importantly, never do something as stupid as falling in love.

Unfortunately, that last part isn’t so easy when his gorgeous one-night-stand who dragged him into a bar supply closet and made him see god, keeps turning up everywhere he goes.

But he doesn’t have time for Jake- no matter how much he wants to. His father’s health is failing, his deli is barely getting by, and now he’s facing a massive legal suit against Larsen Property Management for trying to kick everyone out into the streets. He also knows that Jake is hiding something, and he’s pretty sure whatever it is, it’s enough to turn his life upside down.

But Jake also makes him want to try, and that’s what scares him the most.

Jakob Larsen spent his life running from the man his father always wanted him to be, but that all comes to a stop when the man announced he was leaving LPM. He finally has a chance to prove to both his brother and to St. James that he can turn Larsen Property Management around and do something good for the people his father has been tormenting all these years.

The problem is, he’s just not quite sure how, when no one trusts him to do the right thing.

And it doesn’t help that Jakob has found himself distracted, falling for a gorgeous, stoic deli owner who has no idea who he really is. All Jakob has ever wanted was to be truly loved, but now that he’s found the one person he could see himself growing old with, he has to face the truth: everything they have is based on a lie.

Will he ever be a man worthy of forgiveness, or will he have to face the fact that everything he touches turns to dust?

All You Touch is the second book in the low-angst, humorous, steamy series, Love Starts Here. It contains no cheating, and a happily ever after.

A New Favorite

I really loved this book so much. I finally realized what it is about EM Lindsey's books that I enjoy the most is how she portrays all characters as real people that you could meet everyday. The heroes have flaws that you and their significant other must learn to accept/deal with, she shows people with a different range of physical/mental/emotional challenges living life and still being able to have an HEA. This book showed all of those things while still at times being humorous and having steamy times. Nick Hudson also does a great job of bring each character to like.

Jake and West

I really enjoyed this story. I liked West from the previous story I'd read and was so happy to have his story and I wasn't disappointed.

I liked the story built between West and Jake. How West thought Jake had no money when he met him and how kind he was about it. West is a good guy. then you have Jake who is trying to do the right thing but is in a rough place with the way his father is. It was a great story and the narrator did a good job of telling it.

Jakob and West Find Love

As the second book in the ‘Love Starts Here’ series, and not having read Book 1, I feel that this book stands alone well. There are hints of the previous book’s couple, but I don’t feel that I missed crucial details from that book that are necessary to understanding this one.

Each person perceives the amount of angst differently. Lindsey is calling this series low-angst, but my angst-o-meter needle points firmly to ‘medium’ for this story. West and Jakob have a lot of identity-angst, both searching for the ‘spark’ to show them their life's direction. It’s not until they meet that they're able to leave the ennui of their mundane lives behind. It struck me after finishing the story that Lindsey has provided readers with a subtle twist on the fated-mates trope.

The story is filled with interesting, likeable characters. It’s primarily an enemies-to-lovers story (which only Jakob is aware of throughout most of the book because he’s lying by omission to West). There are a few steamy scenes, several fun getting-to-know-you scenes, a short road trip with meet-the-parents, and the happily-ever-after ending includes the entire found family.

Other than a little inconsistency in West’s accent, Nick Hudson delivers a terrific performance.

I requested this audiobook be given to me for free as an ARC. This post includes a few of my honest and voluntary opinions on it.

I loved this audio from EM Lindsey! It was excellent from the beginning to the end. It was slightly angsty, steamy, just a perfect blend! I have found a new top narrator for sure! Nick Hudson does a fantastic job!

Enjoyed!

Nick Hudson knocks it out of the part narrating this story!
West and Jake are meant to be. They just work together. The chemistry and connection between these two jumps off the pages.
This mistaken identity/secrets coming out story kept me glued to the book.
Both men are dealing with life choices and their decisions will affect their future relationship.
Watching them figure things out and grow together is wonderful.
Great addition to the Love Starts Here series.

Enjoyed It a Lot

I liked the story about men from two very different worlds falling in love. I liked both characters and enjoyed following their chemistry grow and develop from tiny spark to overcoming obstacles kind of love. Narrator did a good job with voices and telling this heart warming story. This was a very good listening experience.

Good Story and Performance

I was given a free audio copy from the author and the GRR arc team for review.

This is book 2 but can be read as a standalone. This book was really good overall but I loved the first book more. I found the first half a bit slow but the 2nd half really made up for it. Regardless of the also start the plot did keep my interest from start to finish. This was a nice heartwarming story. The 2 MCs were developed well and had great chemistry. I really liked both of them. Even though there is some angst I personally found it mild and there were some good steamy scenes. I would recommend it.

Audio = 4 stars

The narrator had a pleasant voice and kept a good pace. He expressed all the emotions well and did different voices for all the diffetent characters that were pretty well done. I definitely enjoyed the story more listening to it.

Loved the book, enjoyed this performance even more

West and Jake have explosive chemistry in their one night stand, but West is fighting for the survival of the family business and to save his and his neighbors' homes from a slumlord. As soon as we know who Jake is, we can see the explosion coming and still it's heartbreaking. It is a rough road to rebuild trust but so worth reading about in this wonderful, heartwarming story. I loved this when I read it,but it is even better to hear the performance by Nick Hudson. Hearing West's pain at what he feels is a betrayal and Jake's desperation to make things right was heartbreaking. I don't think there's an audiobook performer out there who does the HEA joy and wrap-ups better than Nick Hudson.

Unknown enemies to true lovers

I adore E.M. Lindsey and snap up as many books of hers as I can. I missed book 1 in this series and clearly the previous couple had quite a story, but I wasn’t lost as I settled into this one. As always, there are a huge number of characters because she’s setting up a series, but I coped.

I really loved these two men.

West has carved out a decent life for himself. He’s taken over his uncle’s deli and although money is always a worry, and he can’t afford to hire help, he’s also managing some courses at the local college at night. He’s surviving – as he has for most of his life. It’s not a wealthy existence, and life can be stressful, but he’s coping.

Jakob – or Jake as he prefers – has a good life. He’s been in Europe for years representing his family’s interests. Even had a French fiancée. But his father’s failing health has recalled him to America where he finally has to face what his family business has been up to – gentrification that is stealing homes away from impoverished people who can’t afford the new fancy places built when their buildings are torn down. When he comes up against a particularly stubborn tenant, he knows things are about to get heated.

Jake hides his identity because he wants to get to know West without the pressure of his family name. That backfires – of course – and when all is revealed, it doesn’t go well. But love can be a sneaky devil and eventually the men find their way back to each other.

Like I said, I enjoyed the book. Am really looking forward to seeing where this series goes.

And, of course, I have to mention Nick Hudson. His narration style suits Ms. Lindsey’s books and it’s always a pleasure to listen. Can’t wait for the next one.

Sometimes you have to let go

I really enjoyed this story, but I think I would disagree with the low-angst assertion. West has so much angst and turmoil, he is practically drowning in it. To his credit, he's a fighter and he never gives up, but he needs to learn to let others help sometimes. He also needs to learn to focus on himself and what he wants...once he figures out what that is. Jake has his own troubles. He wants to do what's right, but feels unable. Will he find the strength to stand up to his father? Will West and Jake both learn learn that sometimes the only way to win a tug-of-war is to let go of the rope? Beautiful, emotional love story.

The narration was very enjoyable and really suited the characters and their emotions.

I received a free copy of this audiobook and am voluntarily leaving this honest review.

Romance and secrets…

West and Jakob time for romance. West is struggling through life, his studies, his deli and specially his apartment. When he meets Jake, the lonely feeling starts to fade but Jakob has got a big secret to tell. Fake it til you make it. They are both good guys, who have issues. I like that West is so independent and Jakob wants to do the right thing. And yet that secret could destroy them. They do get their hea though. Lovely narration.

Another fantastic love story

Listening to a new E.M. Lindsey romance is always a treat for me, and West and Jakob's story was no exception. I fell in love with them in the very first chapter, and despite the less-than-ideal circumstances it was a joy to watch them find their way together. Neither man was expecting anything to come out of their hot-as-heck anonymous hookup, and that's why their romance felt so genuine despite their completely different lifestyles. Jakob wasn't looking for someone to shower with money--in fact it often seemed like he was trying to escape his upbringing and find out who we was as a person without his inheritance. The fact that Jakob's company was responsible for the majority of West's living struggles was a horrible kind of irony, and while I didn't agree with Jakob's decision to hide the truth I understand why he did it. His and West's connection had the potential to be something magnificent, but the stigma behind Jakob's last name would have shut down their relationship entirely. I'll admit that I was a little skeptical at how easily West dismissed his initial impressions of Jakob, but I can't complain too much when it led to some heartwarming bonding moments and steamy nights together. I've read other stories where the wealthier half of a couple tried to throw money around to fix all their problems, and I appreciate that Jakob never did that to West. Their relationship always felt like it was on even footing, and I honestly found myself forgetting about their different upbringings in the face of their growing affections. If I ever had any doubts about West and Jakob's feelings, their road trip back to West's childhood home erased them. I knew there was no way West could stay in the dark about Jakob's identity forever, but seeing just how good things were between them made me ache for the inevitable betrayal. Thankfully, West wasn't the type of man to hold a grudge unnecessarily, and Jakob had already proven himself to be nothing like his father. Nothing made me happier than when the two of them agreed to give their romance a second chance, and getting a peek at their quiet, happy life together was the perfect way to close out their journey.

All You Touch

E.M. Lindsey did a fantastic job with this story. They really do a very good of giving us what we need while maintaining realness. So good! Jakob and West both have meaty journeys alone, but they are perfection together! Hudson did a great job of narrating. I do always speed him up, but that's a preference thing.

Read as a stand-alone

Not having read/listened to book 1 in this series, I thought I would struggle, but no. The author does such a great job with the story and the characters that I didn't feel I was missing something.

West and Jacob are great characters, well defined and complement each other. The story is good and captures you from the start, add that with great narration, and you have a great book to listen to.

Well narrated, clean and clear. Nick Hudson is always a joy to listen to. I sped up to 1.35 on audible.

Fantastic Story, Wonderful Characters

What an absolutely wonderful story! These characters drew me in from the very first page, and I became completely vested in their happily ever after. Very likeable guys, the chemistry between them is off the charts, and E.M. Lindsey writes some steaming hot love scenes between them.

My favorite so far!

5 Stars!

This was such a fantastic addition to the series. It can totally be read/listened as a standalone, but I think you'll enjoy it more if you read the first book in the series first.

I loved West, he was a sweetheart. I loved how devoted he was to his cause and to his family, even when he couldn't be with them. I liked Jake a lot, and even if my suspicions from book 1 were confirmed and he was hiding who he was from West, the conflict wasn't drawn out for too long, even if it only came to play in the last third of the book. In the meantime, we saw Jake become the man he wanted to be and he was very supportive of West. They were super hot together, too, which was definitely a bonus! They had fantastic chemistry and watching their relationship progress was a treat.

I loved catching up with Carter, Henryk, and Rhys. I hate Jordan with the fire of a thousand suns and I was a bit disappointed he didn't get more of a comeuppance. Same with Jake's father, the man deserves a slow, very painful death. LOL

Nick Hudson did a solid job with his narration. He gave each character a distinctive voice and made the experience even better for me with the emotions he managed to convey through his voice.

Overall, a fantastic audiobook! I was totally invested in West and Jake's HEA and loved seeing them both sharing time with their friends and West's family. Well-written, angsty, sweet, engaging, and steamy, you definitely can't go wrong with this one!
