Love is a risk.

Roman has never been willing to take those odds, until now.

A beautiful stranger, overheard telling the desk clerk she’s on her honeymoon alone, arouses something in him. Something primal. Something protective. He finds himself doing and saying things he swore he never would in an effort to understand the pain in Aria’s sensual eyes.

His scars are so deep, the

description

1.5 Stars

Honestly, this book was a bit of a hot mess. This couple had ZERO chemistry. Aria started out as a likable heroine but then turned into some weird alcoholic. Plus, I didn't understand why she was marrying her ex when all she did was talk badly about him. How he mistreated her. How he has a small dick. She didn't seem to like the guy even BEFORE she found out he was cheating, so why exactly did she stay with him for SIX years? Roman was OK, but his character came off formal and stiff. Pl

This was an interesting read. The storyline grabbed me when I read the synopsis.

It was a quick read....which kind of made the character relationship quick but I thought the author did a good job of developing that relationship.

Him & I is the debut novel for Melody Eve and I did enjoy it. This is the first book in the duet and the storyline was interesting. This insta-love novel took you on a journey with Roman and Aria. They were complexed well-developed characters who had some great chemistry and they really balance out each other with how different they were.
There were lots of steamy scenes throughout the novel and some twists and turns in this story which will shock you but will keep you hooked until the end.

I couldn't finish this one. The characters were not that likable to begin with, and their actions continually got worse.

Here are a few of their bad deeds:
-Roman "punishes" Aria with a sexual act and it felt icky
-Aria gets drunk and falls asleep in the sun without sunscreen or a covering! Asking for cancer
-Aria continues to drink and drink - kind of worried about her liver here
-Roman gets mad at Aria when she isn't happy he "kidnapped" her

That's enough for me and I was out. DNF @ 56%

Wow, wow, wow! What a helluva introduction to a new author!  

Him & I is the debut novel from Melody Eve.  I am an avid reader and newly minted blogger so I can say with confidence that this author is going to be huge!

This is the story of Aria and Roman.  This is a page turner!

After extracting a great revenge on her fiancé and best friend, Aria takes off to enjoy her honeymoon by herself to lick her wounds and recover in her own misery, but she isn't given the chance with the handsome as sin, slightly overbearing Roman waltzes into her life refusing to let her sulk alone. While she fights him throughout the two form a genuine connection mixed with off the charts sexually chemistry that is a sure fire win.

Melody does a wonderful job telling a great love story. You meet Aria after she’s put through a day of devastation. She decides to take a trip, by herself, and ends up meeting Roman, a hot, sexy, controlling in and out of the bedroom kind of man. He knows how to make Aria feel good with his words, his look and definitely his sizzling touch. If you like crazy, hot sex then this is a definite read! It will not disappoint. Roman and Aria’s chemistry is flaming hot. I was left wanting more, which is ...more

A sweet, sexy and easy to read contemporary romance...

I love discovering new authors, and a debut author is even sweeter. I hadn't heard anything about Melody Eve before the option to review came up, and that's no surprise considering Him & I is her debut. As far as debuts go, I liked it and it was a good read. I think the story itself has a lot of promise, and in my opinion had it gone a little deeper and had the story been drawn out a little more, I would've loved this book.

For the two weeks leading up to the ceremony, she pretends things are still wonderful, while planning her revenge in secret. Once her revenge is served, she heads off on her honeymoon alone for some relaxation and to escape reality for a bit. Once at the resort, she has caught the eye of a sexy stranger who is n

Writing comes easily to some authors and I believe that Melody Eve is one of those.
Her debut book, Him and I is proof of how easily she can capture my attention.

The book starts off at a run and just kept moving at a steady pace which made it grueling when I had to stop and continue on with daily life.
It begins with Aria finding out her scumbag ex has been sleeping around on her. She enacts revenge on a epic level that had me laughing. Okay, not so nice but who can thinking clearly in that situa

A different kind of second chance romance.

Usually when we think of second chance romances in books we usually think it’s a story about ex’s who found each other again. But to me this is a different and unique approach to second chance love.

We learn that Aria was cheated on right away, she lost her chance of a HEA before her wedding. She becomes a little cynical when it comes to the opposite gender. I mean who wouldn’t after what happened? She thought she loved ex douchecanoe at that time. Then

I’m not really sure how to review this book. There was some things that I liked and the. Some things I really struggled with. Roman and Aria were pretty much an instalove type gong and I didn’t have an issue with that. I thought it was sweet and predictable but cute. The banter between the two was great also. The sex was hot and I love that Roman could be domineering, but at the same time he was caring.

Him & I had all the interesting, swoon worthy aspects of a good romance book but it lacked in several areas. I felt the beginning was a great opening and immediately had me hooked/wanting to know what was next but it was super rushed. I'm all for two characters quickly falling in love but the way Aria and Roman started off just didn't make sense to me and was super unrealistic. To be fair, it is a romance book and there are a lot of romance books were similar things happen like in Him & ...more
