REVIEW: Melt For You by J T Geissinger


Melt for You by J.T. Geissinger

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 be closer than she thinks.

Cameron McGregor is a cocky, tattooed Scottish rugby captain who just moved in next door. He’s not Jo’s type—at all—but the notorious playboy is offering to teach the wallflower everything he knows about inspiring desire. Though a lot of women have rumpled Cam’s kilt, Jo is special. Far from the ugly duckling she thinks she is, in Cam’s eyes she’s sharp, funny, and effortlessly sexy. Now, thanks to him, Jo is blooming with confidence and has the man of her dreams within reach.

Unfortunately for Cam, he’s just helped to push the woman of his dreams into the arms of another man—and now he’s in the fight of his life to keep this beauty from getting away.

Caroline's Review


Oh, wow! This book was sooooo funny! 

"Stop pretending you're a mouse, dragon lady, and go after what you want."

Joellen Bixy is the ugly duckling in a family of beautiful swans. She's been in love with a man, who doesn't know she exists, for ten years. She doesn't really have any friends except her cat, Mr Bingley, and the eccentric, older English lady who lives in her building. She's normally tongue-tied and mousey, until an obnoxious new guy moves in across the hallway disturbing her peace and quiet. 

"I'm in a bad mood every I see you because I'm seeing you."

Cameron McGregor is a big, brawny Scottish rugby player. He's gorgeous with muscles for days. He parties hard, is outrageous, and has the biggest ego on the planet! For some reason, he brings out the dragon in Joellen and her razor-sharp tongue.

This novel was so funny! I was laughing out loud for much of it, as Cameron is annoyingly but adoringly bigheaded and egotistical. You know he's joking the whole time but Joellen just bites every time! Her comebacks are hilarious! 

"You're not weird. You're unique. There's a difference."

When Cameron persuades her to let him help her get her man, the sparks really start to fly, and has Joellen confused and questioning her feelings. He's sexy, forward, and really riles her up, however, the more time she spends with him, she begins to see the pain he hides beneath his cocky bravado.

"His expression and voice are nonchalant, but his eyes. Oh, his eyes. How hotly they burn."

Gah! I just adored this book. The chemistry and sexual tension between Cameron and Joellen was tangible. The dialogue and banter between them was often snappy and hilarious, and sometimes really quite serious. I loved how Joellen's self-deprecating ways made Cameron angry; how she couldn't see herself as beautiful. 

This was a funny, sexy novel but with a real message about self-perception and self-image. Beauty really is only skin deep. Thoroughly recommend!
