Publisher's Summary

Born and raised in Cherry Creek, Edmund Fitzgerald was the sort of man who tried to find the good in all things. As a natural leader, Fitz reclaimed his trauma after half his body burned in a fire and worked his way up to fire chief at the local department. He had a good home and good friends, even if his romantic life left something to be desired. In spite of his bad luck in love, he managed to keep a cheerful smile on for everyone. At least, until Antoine Tremblay crashed into town.

Literally.

As the older twin with absent parents and a chip on his shoulder, Antoine and his brother grew up nomadic - the inconvenient offspring of traveling teachers who wanted nothing more than to spend their lives seeing the world. While his friends were dreaming of road trips, Antoine was dreaming of a home to call his own.

Retreating into his consulting career, Antoine dedicates his life to stabilizing small-town economies and doesn’t hesitate to take a job in Cherry Creek - a town that makes it very clear it doesn’t want Antoine there. Before he even crosses the city limits, Antoine is run off the road by a wild goat, and he’s forced to accept a rescue by a wary man who makes it very clear that Antoine’s presence in Cherry Creek is not welcome.

And what’s worse, the ridiculously attractive, absolutely infuriating fire chief seems to be at the center of every single one of his disasters that happens after - and unfortunately there are many. All Antoine wants is to do his job and go home, but Cherry Creek seems to have it in for him, and Edmund Fitzgerald seems thrilled to watch him fall apart. It might be real hatred, or it might just be pigtail pulling, but Antoine isn’t sure which, and he’s not really sure he wants to know. After all, a place like Cherry Creek will never be his home.

Fitz has never found someone worth fighting for, and Antoine has never found a reason to stay, but they know that looking at each other leaves them absolutely breathless. Will that be enough to make a relationship work, or will they decide that their love isn’t worth the fight?

Love Him Breathless is the second book in the series On the Market. It contains no cheating and a happily ever after.

A wonderful story in the Cherry Creek universe.

Love Him Breathless is book 2 in the On The Market series. I really enjoyed this wonderfully written enemies to lovers story about Fitz, the Fire Chief in Cherry Creek, and Antoine, who comes to the small town for work to try to boost their tourism. From the beginning the town seems to want to kill Antoine has he has many accidents, but Fitz is always there to save him. Though Fitz doesn't want someone coming in to change his town he can't help but fall for Antoine. I really enjoyed getting more background about Antoine and his twin brother Marcel. (Marcel's book is Temptation book 2 in the Breaking the Rules series.) Even though Antoine and Fitz didn't like each other in the beginning there was so much chemistry between them. Their journey to love was a delight to watch. I love the end as Fitz follows his heart. I recommend this book. Narrator Nick Hudson does a marvelous job in bringing these characters to life.

Antoine and Fitz

Though I really enjoyed this story as a whole, there were times I didn’t feel the connection between Antoine and Fitz. I also have a few unanswered questions. I did like the characters in this story and how everyone genuinely seemed to care for each other. All I know is if I were Antoine I would have be pressing charges left and right. He's a much nicer person then I am. I did have a good laugh regarding Parker and his prosthetic. As for the narration… WONDERFUL. Nick Hudson did a fabulous job with the characters voices, hitting the emotions at just the right moment, and setting a nice tone throughout the story. Hudson is definitely becoming a fast favorite of mine.

Another great story

Start with narration: This narrator isn’t a favorite of mine but I don’t mind him either. Takes me a bit to get settled with his voice but not a reason to pass on this listen. Really enjoyed Antoine and Fitz story. Poor Antoine just doesn’t seem to be able to catch a break but Fitz is always there to rescue him. I’ve always enjoyed this authors way to tell a story and she doesn’t disappoint with this one. Taking difficult topics and brining them to light. Another great story.

I Liked It

I liked the 2nd story set in Cherry Creek town filled with interesting characters and beautiful sites. I LOVED book 1 in the On The Market series and was very excited for this book. I was not disappointed, even though I enjoyed Love Him Free a lot more than this book, Fitz and Antoine's romance was a nice story with a touch of enemies to lovers development and some hot and steamy moments. In this story Antoine encountered many injury causing accidents where Fitz was the one to come to his rescue every time. I liked both Fitz and Antoine as well as enjoyed cameos from characters from first book. I felt that there are other books that I missed with love stories of these characters, but it didn't impact my enjoyment of the story. Narrator did a great job with voices & story, he is fast becoming one of my favorite narrators after his performance in both books in this series. Overall this was a good listening experience and I am looking forward to more stories set in Cherry Creek.

Interconnecting Stories

It's hard to review this story. I wish there weren't so many characters from another series from a different author throughout the story. I haven't read/heard those stories and I don't plan to. I was lost and it takes away the enjoyment of the story. I enjoy Nick Hudson's narration, but I couldn't get past the characters.

Perfection

I loved the book, and the audio was superb. This was my first Nick Hudson listen, and he did so well. As always, EM Lindsey has created a beautiful world with wonderfully real characters. And Nick Hudson did a great job bringing those characters to life.

Enemies to lovers

I’m torn about this one. I really like Fitz and Antoine but I felt their story was overshadowed by all the other things that happened in the book. And there were a lot of characters. I had to go and look up the author to see how many books I had missed before this one and from what I could tell it was only 1. Fitz is Cherry Creeks fire chief. As a teenager he got burned badly in a fire but he worked hard to overcome his injuries. Antoine is coming to Cherry Creek to help them come up with ways to bring in money to the area. The poor guy has the worst time in Cherry Creek! Car accident, he almost drowned, he gets hit by a car... They both have things in their past they are dealing with. Fitz had a boyfriend that didn’t love him and left, Antoine has a twin brother who he had a falling out with. I did like how they reconnected. When they finally get together it’s pretty hot. I liked them together. There is a little drama towards the end of the book. I think part of my issue was the pacing of the book. I got bored in parts. And I felt like it just ended. Nick Hudson was awesome! I had never heard of him. I will be looking for other books done by him!

Fitz + Antoine

Nick Hudson is vastly becoming one of my favorite narrators. This book as well as any other he has narrated is so good and the book is just more with his narration. To keep this trend this book left me wanting. I wanted more. More time for Fitz and Antoine to explore their feelings, more time for their banter, and definitely more of their HFN...that seems like their HEA...this book was still sooo good, I just felt rushed at the end and I didn’t want that for them. They were opposites who were listing after each other and really they were falling for each other. Great book and love this author!! ARC received by GRR in exchange for an honest review.

Enjoyable

This was a heart warming and breaking all in one. I enjoyed the storyline it was interesting and keeps you guessing what’s going to happen next. The characters Fitz and Antoine are both strong independent characters and blend well together by the end of the story. Great addition to the series. The narration was good.

Addictive

A super addition to the series by EM Lindsey. Chery Creek is a magical place, so happy to get to know the residence and their stories. Nick Hudson did a great job with the narration. Be prepared to keep checking when the next book is released. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Perfect in audio!

Ahhh so much love for this one! This series is shaping up to be one of my absolute favorites. Since Marcel’s book was one of my favorite stories Lindsey has ever written, I was a little worried that Antoine wouldn’t be able to redeem himself, but oh boy was I wrong. Right from the get go he acknowledges that it’s his own issues that caused all the tension between the two and so I was able to embrace him with a clean slate. And then he went to Cherry Creek and the small town magic happened. I’ve said it before, but it takes a lot for me to like an enemies to lovers story, I just don’t usually find them believable. But it so worked here. Even as they were falling for each other, they weren’t sugary sweet with each other, and I loved them for it that much more. Fitz was a stand out in the previous book in the series, so I knew I’d like his story, but I absolutely loved the way it was done. 10/10 would recommend! Nick Hudson is able to add an extra layer to this story that you definitely don't want to miss!

really enjoyable enemies to lovers story

This was an enjoyable enemies to lovers story. It's dislike at first sight for Fitz and Antoine. Antoine is in Cherry Creek to give the town's image a revamp and fire chief Fitz tries so hard to keep him at arms length. Despite a few mishaps, Antoine begins to fall in love, not just with Cherry Creek but also with the grumpy firefighter. I also loved catching glimpses of the some of the other characters who have their own books but cameo in Fitz and Antoine's story.

Good enemies to lovers romance

On the Market has become an enjoyable series set in the small town of Cherry Creek. Whilst still interacting with already established couples, we now get to meet and have the HEA for other members of the community and the new people who come into town. Fitz has lived there all his life and is now the Fire Chief at the local firehouse. Half of his body may be covered in burns from a trauma in his teens but he doesn't let that hold him back. Completely opposite is Antoine who lived his life moving constantly around the world. He struggles with relationships and when he comes to town to help sort the town's tourism gets off to the worst of starts thanks to a wandering goat and Fitz who is the first responder, They get off on the wrong foot from the start and are constantly antagonising each other, maybe Fitz more so than Antoine but it makes for a very entertaining relationship that goes hand in hand with how often Antoine finds himself in a situation that requires medical attention. You can sense the attraction between them but both are reluctant for their own reasons, neither having great history regarding romance. Elsewhere, Antoine makes friends with quite a few residents around town, all seeing how much work he's putting in to helping their town. This is a really good slow burn romance that flows well throughout the story and comes together nicely for the MC's at the end. I look forward to more from this series and need to go back and find out more on the original series on Cherry Creek. Nick has again done a great job of narrating an EM Lindsey story. There is one or two accents that were just a little off for me but they were small, side characters and didn't detract my enjoyment of the banter back and forth between the MC's and their determination to not give in to their attraction.

A Cute Enemies-to-Lovers Romance

Love Him Breathless is the second book in the On the Market series. This book can easily stand on its own but reading the first book in the series gives the reader a really good sense of what the town of Cherry Creek is like and introduces the reader to a lot of important side characters. Antoine is a consultant who specializes in sprucing up towns and making them an attractive place to visit. He’s extremely good at his job, but his personal life has suffered in contrast. It takes one trip to Cherry Creek to completely throw Antoine’s life upside down and show him exactly what he’s been missing. The relationship between Antoine and Fitz is tumultuous at first: both men immediately get under each other’s skin and harsh words are exchanged. But then, that antagonizing energy morphs into a powerful attraction that can’t be denied. I absolutely loved the transformation of Antoine’s and Fitz’s relationship from enemies-to-lovers. This trope, if not done well, can feel unauthentic, but the author does a really good job with not only developing the characters but also developing their relationship and making it feel real. Overall, I really enjoyed this book—from the plot to the characters—plus I’m falling in love with all the other side characters who live in this cute town of Cherry Creek. The audiobook was narrated by Nick Hudson who has a great voice and does a fantastic job with the narration. Nick does a great job of keeping each character distinct and also infuses a lot of emotion and energy into his performance. It makes listening to the story really interesting and fun. The audiobook production was well done and also contributed to a great listening experience

A delightful listen

Fitz and Antoine gave me plenty of fits in this book. I found myself laughing, crying, and all around hanging on the edge of my seat listening to this story. Hudson's narration drew me in and I could not put my headphones down.

hate to love

wow the frustration, passion, chemistry, unease, hate, anger and so much more makes for an intense read. I like both characters but felt their hate was more angry and "hateful" than passionate love. I enjoyed their coming together and I love Cherry Creek so much! such small town charm and heart. I do feel like I'm missing parts of everyone's stories...I feel like I should know more about Parker and Ronan (I want to know their story), and Birdie, and the mayor and what is up with poor Owen! so many wonderful characters I want to know them all!!!

Fun story

I enjoyed the characters, they started out with quite the prickly relationship. The way they kept getting thrown together until they stuck together was amusing. By the end I liked their dynamic together. Fun story set in a quirky fun town with quite the cast of characters populating the area.

A perfect enemies-to-lovers story.

A perfect enemies- to-lovers, I mean, they were really enemies in he beginning, apart from the physical attraction they couldn’t stand each other and they were really mean to each other, with barbs and snapping remarks. There was even a bit of hate sex thrown in. And I LOVED IT! It made it so much sweeter when they finally start to thaw to each other and realize that they might actually LIKE each other. And they are both scared, no, even more… terrified! Fitz and Antoine are complex and imperfect characters, but at their core they both are lonely men longing for, but afraid of, love. Absolutely loved the ending, it was just perfect! Nick Hudson is an absolute star and rocked the narration for these two men, he really conveyed all the feeling perfectly!
