Reviews Melt for You (Slow Burn, #2)

  • 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...

    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 Sco...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...
  • 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...
  • 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...

    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...

    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...
  • 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...

    “You’re the reason God created the middle finger.” Sexy, sweet, heartwarming, hilarious, and so damn witty, MELT FOR YOU by J.T. Geissinger was an unputdownable romance! With characters that will fill your heart and a storyline that will have you grinning from ear to ear, Joellen and Cameron couldn’t have been more perfect! The chemistry went from antagonistic, to steamy, to ON FIRE in the span of just a few chapters. This was a sexy and ...
  • Kiki
    Update: 7/5/18This was one of those reformed playboy teaching wallflower heroine how to be a seductress trope. Which is an overly exhaustied trope. And frankly speaking a disturbing one at that.The player, in both figurative and literal sense, as hero is a rugby player, has controversy following him, therefore the change of scenario. To say he was cocky and arrogant would be an understatement.However despite my blatant double standards and an obv...

    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...

    Every book I read leaves an impact on me in some way or another. Melt For You touched me in so many ways that I know I will always reflect on the great message this story carries and how much I loved the experience of reading it.Joellen is 36, single and lives with her cat. For the last 10 years she has been in loved with her married boss. In her mind he is the definition of perfection. She has been admiring him from afar, hoping that one day he ...

    At work, Joellen was the yes woman. Never declined an assignment and always on time. Then there’s the unfortunate fact she’s been in love with her married boss for a decade. And all I was thinking was girl, please get a life! There’s so much more out there! Outside of work, she had this snarky vibe that I just felt was hiding someone who had the potential to be more, except she lacked the self confidence to find and explore it. When her new...

    The Mountain grins at me. "That's the second time I've left you speechless, lass. Imagine what would happen if I dropped the towel. I'd probably have to call you an ambulance." I absolutely loved Burn For You, so I was so stoked to be able to receive an early copy of Melt For You.Melt For You is about a thirty-six-year-old woman, Joellen with self esteem issues. She has been pinning over her boss for ten years years and suddenly he has an interes...
  • Nadia
    I was ready to rant and rage about this book, but then I read the acknowledgments at the end of the book, and talk about taking the wind out of your sails. So, without the anger all there is left is actually pity. I don't know if the author's intention was for us to pity the heroine, it doesn't seem like an emotion suitable for a romance novel.And while I understand that the inspiration for the heroine was drawn from real life, it did nothing to ...

    “Dear God, he’s a Scotsman. A huge, half-naked Scotsman in a kilt. Smiling at me like he knows all my secrets, what colour my panties are, and that I’m curious what it would be like to have a man pull my hair during sex.” This book was the ultimate slow burn, and hilarious. Absolutely hilarious. I would like to make it known that I want Joellen Bixby to be my new BFF!! I could relate to her SO much, especially the socially awkwardness!!! ...

    HOLY SHIT! This book was about me!!!!!!!! 🙋🏼Oh. My. GOD! I can't believe my luck to have received this ARC. It was more than amazing. It was amazing x 100.Oh, damn, how I wish I was more eloquent and had more words in my vocabulary to express everything I feel about this book and its awesome author!The heroine was totally me. I'm like that. Exactly like that. Maybe not as smart as her, as I don't usually find my words in a crazy banter. I c...
  • Naughty Mom Story Time
    5+ StarsThis was such a MARVELOUS book! I SO adored the characters. Told from Joellen’s POV, we are given a heroine filled with sass and spark, but so introverted very few people get to see that side of her. Like most women, she’s plagued with body image and self-esteem issues that keep her held back from developing many relationships- friend or otherwise. She was awkward and clumsy and funny as hell! A true spitfire when she had her moments ...

    I’m in love with J.T. Geissinger right now! Stupidly in love. ”Love is war, darlin'. Only thing in life worth sheddin' blood over.” Review to followwwwwww!
  • Treena
    Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher, Montlake Romance, for giving me an ARC of this book. The review below is entirely my own opinion.I really enjoyed this ugly-duckling-turns-into-a-swan romance. I loved that the transformation emphasized that it's more important to be happy with yourself and not because you want to please others or to conform to a certain standard of what is deemed to be beautiful. I loved that this story was a slow burn a...
