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.

Ring the alarm because Lauren Blakely has done it again and turned up the heat with her newest release Melt for Him: A Fighting Fire Novel. Ms. Blakely does not give us any ordinary romance but she gave us one hot scorching love story. So what happens when two strangers are met with temptation, lust, desire and sexual tension? 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

Book 2, in Lauren Blakely’s Fighting Fire series literally starts with a bang, and the smoldering and fizzing between Becker and Megan doesn’t really stop right up until the end.

Okay, this was MUCH better than the first book.

Melt for Him introduces us to Becker and Megan. Now they were someone I could get behind. They had such great chemistry and no one annoyed me. So yeah, I liked them. I'm also slightly jealous that a bar or winery doesn't name their drinks after animals? If this is a thing though, trust me I will find it. The winery though, not a big beer drink at all.

Other than that, I just really enjoyed this book. I'm a bit disappointed with how short it was but I

This was a quick and steamy read. Megan, a freelance artist and photographer, meets Becker, a bar owner and fire chief, at his bar Sparks fly instantly and they spend the night together. 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.

This was a steamy, quick read that hit the spot. I liked both of them, the romance between them, and their relations

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

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

Hmm I am not sure what I really think about this book just yet, I am letting it sink in a little as I type this.

I liked the chemistry Becker and Megan have its HOT and that is kind of fitting for this book.
I like that they were honest with each other even if it was uncomfortable I am a sucker for honesty. There were a few lies told but not between Megan and Becker.

I wasn’t a fan of the way Megan comes to see how much she needed Becker I guess I expected her to talk things out and yes in a way

This is definitely a steamy firefighter romance! It's pretty short so the plot moves quickly and I wish we could have slowed down a bit to have more build up. Becker and Megan fit together well and I liked their chemistry. His bar with beer named after dogs was a fun idea and I did enjoy Megan's animal drawings.

The narration for the audiobook is well done and the pacing is quick. Of course there's a happily ever after, you can always count on Blakely for that! Fun read and I'll be checking out
DNF at ~50+%. Couldn’t stand the narrators anymore.

A steamy romance with a firefighter, need I say more? LOL, good plot, great heat between the characters who get lots of physical workouts in and plenty of mind candy. It's definitely a quick escape from reality. The narrators do a good job of helping bring the characters to life. ...more

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
