He was a wizard with his tongue, a gentleman with his actions and a swoon-maker with his words.

Melt for Him is a solid one-handed read, I listened to the audio so I had two hands available which was all the better. This was my first Lauren Blakely book and DANG the steamy parts were scorching. She paints a sex scene well and I was impressed with the build of sexual tension which went along with some very nice creativity and inve

I have been lucky in my life... I had an older brother but because he was 8 years older than me and off being married so he never interfered with my dating or love life... such as it was... so the storyline of "don't mess with my sister" is something I have no personal experience with...That is not to say I don't understand it.

Why of course, you got yourself a sizzling romance! Be prepared to get burned!

Review by Allison East

He was a wizard with his tongue, a gentleman with his actions and a swoon-maker with his words.

Becker has issues, ghosts from his past that continue to haunt him when he moves from the big city to a smaller one. He isn't into relationships- because he can't seem to let past mistakes go- to let go of the blame he feels. Becker is extremely hot, alpha- and just down right good in every sense of the word, but he gets caught up in his own head. Becker li

The next day, secrets are revealed that they weren't expecting and makes them put a stop to their relationship. They can't keep away from each other though and eventually learn to work things out.

Melt for Him is unlike any of the Brazen offerings I've read before and in fairness I've read a lot. But I don't mind different. Different keeps thing fresh. And different brings those unexpected reads that you'd likely read again. If you like a romance with an endearing couple and sizzling bedroom (and outdoor) antics, then Lauren Blakely certainly brings us that.

I have to start by saying a big thank you to Lauren Blakely for the bringing the steam AND the swoon once again in Melt for Him! I am such a big fan of her books, so I jumped at the chance to read and review her latest Brazen.

Blakely has not only created an engaging storyline, but she has developed and created a set of enjoyable characters that I couldn't get enough of. I really liked both Megan and Becker. Their attraction to one another is instant and their banter is both flirty and fun. Mega

I love a story filled with great characters, excellent banter, emotional moments, and major passion. This was it!!!! I was teary eyed and smiling by the time it ended, loved it all!

Megan and Becker where excellent characters with this instant, incredible chemistry. They connected on so many different levels and even when they fight to stay away from one another there is still this magnetic pull. It was awesome! There were all these innuendos and banter between the two of them and it was so flir
3.5 stars

Second in the Fighting Fire series Melt for Him was a quick, sexy, and intimate read. Even though our leads jump into the sack pretty early, they still had a fun, friendly, and gradual deeper growing attraction. For how quick of a read this was and how Brazen books tend to rely heavily on the sexy times, I was impressed with how believable Becker and Megan were outside of the bedroom. There was a camaraderie and ease to the couple that paired extraordinarily well with their bedroom sce

Maybe it was all physical. Or maybe it was more. Maybe it was because she didn't know him, and he didn't know her, and they could be anybody. They could be people without pasts, without stories, without baggage. A man, a woman, meeting by chance. A quick stumble, a brief catch, as if someone or something had wanted them to meet. The night was a blank slate full of possibility.

However familiar or common as that theme might be, Lauren Blakely tells it better, tells it hotter! Becker and

I'm starting to feel like a broke record when it comes to writing my Lauren Blakely reviews. It's inevitable that while reading any of her books, I will require a changing of my panties because they are just that hot.
Becker brought the best kind of heat. Dare I say that I liked him even more than I like Smith? He's hot, he's sexy, he's built like a beast, he owns his own bar and, oh yeah, did I forget to mention that he's a fireman? He's also tortured and broken and just trying to do his best to

MELT FOR HIM drew me in from the first page and I had an immediate connection to Becker and Megan. Becker is a big, strong, attractive volunteer fireman and is also the owner of the Panting Dog, a microbrewery. Megan returns to her home town of Hidden Oaks, California and is at the Panting Dog, when she literally trips into Becker. There is an immediate attraction between them and Megan agrees to go home with Becker. When she does, Megan is pleasantly surprised at Becker’s bedroom skills and won ...more

Meeting for the first time in the back of Becker’s bar, and not knowing anything about each other, Becker and Megan realize they need to get to know more about each other…and right now!! So the only solution is to go to Becker’s apartment and rip each others clothes off! The details in this very first erotic scene were so explicit, the reader felt as they were Megan themselves, receiving this amazing treatment and dedication from the

A fantastic read!
Becker is definitely someone to melt for. A very sexy firefighter, with a magic tongue, a hot body and a past that sometimes haunts him.
Megan, a woman who knows what she wants and runs from a past that she refuses to face. That is until she meets Becker. Thinking him to be a bar owner she wants one hot passionate night with him.
Once they learn the truth, that he is her brothers best friend and a firefighter (the one profession she won't fall for) things get more complicated. No
Short, sweet and to the point. Nothing I love better than a steamy, romance book that gives you no drama, no games played and a whole lot of AH-MAZING!!!

Becker & Megan did not disappoint. It was very refreshing to read about a heroine who was not shy or played coy when it came to what she wanted in bed.

And kudos to Becker for not being your typical manwhore, but a man who also knew what he wanted in and out of bed, risked his friendship with his best friend by falling in love with his little si

Joe Arden and Erin Mallon did a fantastic job narrating this sexy and heartfelt best friend's little sister romance. Though this is book 2 in the series, I had no problem enjoying Becker and Megan's story (even though I have not read/listened to book 1).

Pardon the pun but.... HOLY SMOKES!! Hot firemen. Yes, yes, yes, GOD YES!!! Sorry about that, but seriously? Did you hear what I said? HOT FIREMEN – yes, plural. The title of this book is actually really appropriate because melt is exactly what this book made me do. I melted in a puddle of lust and desire for Becker Thomas – bar owner, lover of raccoons and fire captain. Lauren Blakely is one of my favourite authors and she has once again proven to me why that is. She can write a steamy, sexy bo ...more
