I've been reading Lauren Blakely for a long time and have to say that Megan and Becker brought the matches that started the fire which brought the trouble in Melt for Him. The connection was instant and obvious. This is the Sexiest couple Ms. Blakely has written to date. The romance was there but the story was lacking for me. I wish there had been more back story to even out the sexual chemistry. Each character was fighting an inner struggle from past hurts that could have added to this story of taboo temptation. I was looking for more than a hot read.
He knows exactly how to make her burn...
Fire captain and bar owner Becker Thomas usually spends his nights alone, trying to escape painful memories from his past. When he meets a sexy, free-spirited brunette outside his bar, he knows he's found the perfect way to forget for one night. But when he discovers the woman he wants back in his bed is his best friend's sister, everything comes to a halt.
Megan Jansen has one rule--no firemen. Just out of a toxic relationship, she's only in Hidden Oaks long enough to visit her brother and photograph the local calendar before she slips off on another adventure. The brooding man who gave her the best sex ever is an unexpected surprise. The problem is, he's her brother's friend...and a fireman. She knows she's going to get burned, but keeping their hands off each other is easier said than done.
Lauren Blakely is donating half of her author proceeds from the pre-order and release week sales for MELT FOR HIM to the NVFC Firefighter support Fund which supports the nation's volunteer fire and EMS departments.
