Melt for You (Slow Burn #2) Reviews
★★ 4.5 stars! ★★
Amazing slow burn, a fun "Bridget Jones meets Beauty and the Beast" storyline (with a great message to boot), and a delicious hunk of a Scottish hero (aka the Mountain)!
[full review to come]
I found the relationship between Joellen and Cameron totally fascinating, and loved following their story. The author has a brilliant writing style that had me laughing aloud on a few occasions. The story was fun although a bit slow at times.
I did have a very significant problem with this book though; I missed Cameron’s POV. I’d love hearing both sides of the story and understand better his strong feelings for Joellen. Cameron is one of the most sexy characters I have ever read, ...more
Starting ‘Melt for You’ was quite an apprehensive step to take, I’ll readily admit.
Considering that I loved the spunk and the unexpected but fun retelling of Beauty and the Beast in J.T. Geissinger’s first book in this series (which made me request this ARC), the blurb to this one—so different from the first—gave me pause. The inexperienced woman vs. the experienced commitment-phobic womaniser CEO/athlete/military man etc. ranging from fun-loving to sleazy is one of the tropes all too common in ...more
This book was awesome. I really enjoyed it. I laughed a lot through this one, I swooned, man did I swoon for Cameron McGregor.
JoEllen has been secretly crushing on her married boss CEO for the last 10 years, yes you read this right. She’s 36, single, her best friend is her cat, she talks to her elderly neighbors friends, this poor girl has no life. Until her neighbors cousin (who swapped flats for a month over the holidays) comes over from Scotland to get away from his troubles. He ...more
"Melt for You" had me in a pool of liquid !
This was one hell of a juicy read. The so very delicious and wickedly sexy banter between Joellen and Cameron is what pushed this rating up, off the charts for me.
I love snarky and biting humor and this book had it, I smiled and laughed my way through this fabulous read.
Perfect slow burn/rom-com. One of my favorite book-couples. The writing is wonderful and everything I could hope for-I read this book in one sitting.
Since my all time favorite by this author is an incredible heartbreaking and intense novel I sometimes tend to forget that J.T. Geissinger also has a different side when writing. But you may believe me when I tell you – for future reference : after reading Melt for You , the second book in the Slow Burn series it will be a LOT harder to forget.
But let me get out one thing first … at first the female character annoyed me so much that I actually found myself talking aloud with the book questionin ...more

First... LOOK AT THAT COVER! I'm seriously obsessed with it. It's the reason I picked up the book to be honest, and I'm so glad I did because oh man, I LOVED this one!! 💜
I honestly didn't expect to be laughing as much as I was, but Joellen was hilarious.
I suddenly understand how otherwise rational people can lose their minds and commit murder in a fit of rage.
