A wallflower gets seduction tips from a playboy athlete—until love changes the rules.

Socially awkward Joellen Bixby has a date every Saturday—with her cat, a pint of ice cream, and fantasies of the way-too-handsome Michael Maddox. She’d give anything to win over the unattainable CEO of her firm, but how can she when she blends in so well with her cubicle? The answer may

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.

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 point of view. I would give just about anything to have go ...more

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 Scotland to get away from his troubles. He

Review at Of Pens and Pages.

Melt for You is a sweet and funny slow-burn romance between a wallflower ready to bloom and the infuriatingly charming Scotsman next door.

After ten years of pining for her boss, thirty-six-year-old copyeditor Joellen Bixby might finally have her chance at winning his heart. She's going to need all the help she can get to lose weight and become an expert seducer by the time the office Christmas party comes, and who better to teach her the art of fitness and se

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.

Melt 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 tells Joellen he is getting a divorce and starts showi

J.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 crown from The Wall of Winnipeg And Me.

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 is one of the most sexy characters I have ever read,

I love this author's work...so, actually, It would have been a 1-click book for me, if I hadn't gotten the ARC in between ;)

Oh, sweet baby Jesus...

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 self-esteem and self-worth from early years, when you

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 with multiple characters and different accents. I ha

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.

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 she finds out he is getting divorced, she is elated, this is h

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 first to say that I don't normally love when heroine

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 slow-cooked homestyle meals that pepper the pages of

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 never expected to find herself being blackmailed into

"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 this book in one sitting.

My kryptonite is a slow burn romance, add a heroine who thinks she is a plain jane when she clearly isn't, and a sexy arrogant athlete (who also happens to be Scottish), and I am in a place where I hear angels sing and I am laying on a fluffy cloud.

I absolutely adore a journey through the many changes of a new relationship. In this case, it's an enemies-to friends-to unrequited love-to lovers-to actual full-blown love. It was a fabulous ride to be on, and whilst it was funny,

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)!

Wow...I certainly wasn't expecting to like this story as much as I did! It was funny, sweet and oh so romantic...it 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.

ARC received for review

I 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 please read the book first...Cameron would never wear

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 from fun-loving to sleazy is one of the tropes all too common in

It's been awhile since I've read a five star contemporary, but this just ticked all my boxes. Honest to goodness curvy, nerdy wallflower and the uber sexy alpha who loves her. Slow, slow, slow burn romance. Check, check, and CHECK. Amazeballs.

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 from having a decade long infatuation for her marri ...more
