  • Bibi
    JTG has excelled herself! I loved the evolution of Cam's and Joellen's relationship; from enemies to friends to lovers. Further, not only is this story extremely funny, it is also quite emotional.*Arc provided by Netgalley*

    Melt For You is book two in the Slow Burn series by J.T. Geissinger. This book! I loved the first book in this series, Burn For You, so much. Sometimes when you love a first book that much, the second just can’t live up to your expectations. That is NOT the case here. Cameron McGregor managed to have me reduced to a puddle of goo in no time. If I had one little tiny complaint with this it’s that the entire book is told from the heroine’s po...

    5 Miss Snufflebottom and Prancer StarsMelt For You is book 2 in the Slow Burn series by J. T. Geissinger, and I should warn you, it put me through the ringer. I went through every emotion, from laughing at the sexy fun banter between the Joellen and Cameron, to wanting to punch something. By the epilogue, I was crying happy tears. Joellen Bixby has been in love with her boss, Michael, for 10 years, and it looks like things are looking up. He tell...

    4.5 starsJ.T. Geissinger, where have you been all my life?! I now need to go find everything this author has ever written and binge read it. This book is a beautiful slow burn gem! I loved how the author took a tired cliche and not only gave it a breath of fresh air but made me feel like I never encountered the trope before. She did the same with the first book of this series which I also loved. It comes pretty close to getting the slow burn crow...

    I love this author's, actually, It would have been a 1-click book for me, if I hadn't gotten the ARC in between ;)Oh, sweet baby Jesus...*sigh*I FREAKING LOVED THIS STORY!Shouting it out loud makes me sound crazy and unhinged BUT in fact, it's just a burst of emotional insighful fulfillment after reading the story that started out as a romantic comedy and ended up providing such a profound message of the importance of grooming one's sel...
  • Olga therebelreader
    ***4.5 stars***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...
  • Dilek VT
    I loved Book 1 in this series very much and I wholeheartedly recommend it to everyone. Usually, Ms Geissinger's books are a hit for me and I really wanted to love this book, too but it really got on my nerves on many levels. It is too hard to rate this book because it had its fun & sweet moments but the frustrating ones outweighed the good ones as far as I was concerned.***********************************************Characters: Joellen, Cam & Mi...

    Update 11/5/18Safety: NOT safe. Hero has ONS with a stranger he picked up at a bar. Heroine hears them having monkey sex against the door (for a change this one was mortified rather than aroused by it). He then comes to heroine’s flat, almost naked, to confront her about being a “peeping Tom”, dismisses the OW absolutely callously in front of heroine while having a conversation with her (my guess, by now his interest is piqued by heroine, O...

    4 Melting With Laughter Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟Fabulous romance with a huge side of humor... nothing like a hot guy, with a killer accent, who can make you laugh....Cam was all that and more... but he was not the man that JoEllen has been crushing on for the past 10 years.... A ten-year crush, can you imagine?JoEllen really needs to find some confidence, and it does not help that she has been in love with her boss for the past 10 years... so when ...

    Oh gawd I love a Scottish hero!!! And Cameron McGregor is absolutely the best! I’m just so overrun with emotions after finishing this book! I want to laugh and cry and start reading it all over again because it..was..wonderful!Joellen learns she has a new neighbor when the most horrendous music blares from behind the door across the hall. She never expected the mountain of a man, wearing nothing but a kilt and boots, to answer her knock. She ne...

    Bloody Brilliant!!Sometimes, a book comes into your life that at the end of the journey, you are thankful you got the chance to experience it. I absolutely loved my journey listening to Melt for You. It has the perfect mix of humour, sexiness, emotion and a smidge of angst to keep things interesting. This is the kind of book that makes me glad to be a romance reader and is going on my Best-of-the-Bestest shelf.The narrator does a fabulous job wit...

    5+++ stars."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...
  • Mindy Lou's Book Review
    This. Book. I'm so in love with this book. This started out as a funny romcom and I'm totally enjoying the heck out of it. The more I read, the more I just completely fell head over heals in love with it. By the end I wanted to just swoon! Swoon, I say! Not just from the hero, Cameron, although hello??? How can you not fall in love with this man. But everything about this book I fell in love.This touched heavily on body image and I will be the fi...

    I write sonnets as a hobby. Classically structured, Shakespearean-style sonnets, because I am a pathetic human being with a nonexistent love life who will someday die alone surrounded by my cats.MELT FOR YOU is book two in the Slow Burn series and once again I have more or less highlighted this entire story. Sweet lines, funny quips, hilarious banter, emotional af passages.. Geissinger serves it all up on a delicious platter, alongside all the sl...

    ** SALE for only $2.49 **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. "You're depriving some poor village of its idiot." "If y...

    4.5 ★'s Wow...I certainly wasn't expecting to like this story as much as I did! It was funny, sweet and oh so definitely will make you melt. And what hot, hunky, Scottish rugby player wouldn't make you melt? He's everything Joellen didn't know she wanted. He's so in your face and egotistical and I loved how Joellen didn't let him get away with one single thing. He loved that too. They meet when he stays at his cousin's apartment t...

    ★★ 4.5 stars! ★★Amazing slow burn, a fun "Bridget Jones meets Beauty and the Beast meets Cyrano" storyline (with a great message to boot), and a delicious hunk of a Scottish hero (aka the Mountain)! [full review to come]
  • Jennifer
    ARC received for reviewI actually read book one in a series, but is this really a series when there are absolutely no characters from the first book or no underlying themes that are the same???Joellen wants Cameron's help in landing the "man of her dreams" and it sure does take her a long time to realize that the man of her dreams is Cameron. He was so funny and just all around perfect except for his obnoxious music.Cover people can y'all not ple...

    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 fr...
  • ♡ Jeri's Book Attic ♡ I like
    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 actual...
  • Jultri
    3.5/5. This is my first book by Geissinger and it was off to such a promising start. I love the heated banter between the leads. The hero brought out the best in the heroine. Joellen Bixby grew up in a aesthetically-blessed household with a beauty queen sister, a model mother and fashion photographer father. It is only natural that she has developed quite an inferiority complex when it comes to her curvy appearance, although it doesn't stop her f...

    4.5 stars***eARC provided by Netgalley in exchange for my honest review***This book was a much needed read. I've been struggling lately to find some feel-good reading material, and this one hit the spot. I loved the humor and romance between Cameron and Joellen (also, I'm loving the name Joellen! It's such a down to earth name in the land of strange NA heroine names), and their chemistry was fantastic! I seriously laughed so hard during most of t...
  • Blackjack
    This is a super sweet, sexy, and touching romance with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments as well as emotional ones too. It is also a very convincing depiction of a couple who transition from snarky banter to genuine friendship and finally deep and abiding love. Each stage is so worth taking the time to appreciate for its own merits.Joellen is a reticent and lonely woman at the start of the novel with an absolutely stunning skill for self-abasement...
  • Neha
    My rating is totally biased but I can justify myself I promise! (A REAL LONG JUSTIFICATION) as I want people to read this one.Disclaimer:So a plot where a guy helps girl to get another guy and end up falling for her is my favourite guilty pleasure!Ok so being a reader who hates weak heroines and self degrading females I should hate it right? But apart from being cheezy as fuck this book was the most Feminist book I have ever read. I was constantl...
  • Sam (AMNReader)
    so.well.That last chapter and epilogue really boosted the rating of this book. I love a memorable & funny wrap-up. The Ugly Duckling premise with a twist here. The heroine is insecure in an understandable, relatable, clueless way. The writing style is just so-so for me overall. I don't mind straightforward style, but sometimes J.T.G has a lot of tell and not a whole lot of show. Fortunately, she's growing (IMO) and does a wonderful job building a...
