of them start out, even as Raj is doing some soul searching, particularly after his son, Arun, comes home to say he s met someone he loves I thought their sex scenes were tender and Stephen tried very hard to make it pleasurable for Raj, which was appreciated I liked especially that these two started as friends, not as bed partners That seemed realistic for Raj s personality I thought the blurb a bit misleading because it didn t seem the cultural differences were all that much of an issue These two don t face a whole lot of angst or problems, so this is a quick, soft read In the interest of

excellent at avoidance, so if I didn t honestly love this story, I would have found an excuse not to rate review it Now to try and write a review that isn t my usual squee which is about as good as I usually get for books I like Touch Starved is a lovely, straightforward, simple story By simple I mean there are no supernatural elements, no explosions, murders, angst, drama, cheating, time travel, whatever, just a sweet little story about two lonely men meeting and falling in love When first given the opportunity to read Samantha s story I was a little nervous What if I didn t like it What if I had to force myself to read it But two sentences in I was already engaged and quickly coming to love Raj, and when Stephen came into the picture I found myself just as enad of him Without resorting to explosions yes I might be stuck on explosions, I quite like them, maybe I can beg for an exploding microwave or something, for the next book flutters eyelids or anything flashy this is a true romance It is carried on the weight of the characters and the relationship they build together I fear this review is a rather sorry effort to explain my love for this story I don t do serious well and trying to suppress my need to aimlessly ramble is a struggle, but I really want to properly convey my enjoyment And while I hate to descend into trite phrases, heartwarming rather fits Sweet, beautiful, lovely That is how I would describe this story Simply put, it just made me happy reading it 4.5 simply because Contemporary isn t my favorite genre, that being said I must admit that this one suited me and I honestly liked itI m not sure I m using right expressions but I feel words that best describe this book are sweet cute and happy There s no angst, villans or drama Just two guys trying to figure out their lives and future and if said future will be together ( READ EPUB ) ♽ Touch Starved ♜ Recently removed from the life he knew, from his family, and from the land that saw his birth,

this is what I truly like as a female yaoi reader.In brief, a story that makes you coo and smile P Really lovely, slow paced ambulation through the journey of friends to lovers, with ethnic diversity and different cultures meeting Wish there had beendepth though a bit too gentle by the end.
