EXCERPT:“Why didn’t you tell me you were from here?” he asked, holding his hands out in question. She furrowed her brow. “What?" “I had no idea you were Travis’s sister,” he said, and he sounded pissed. “And I had no idea you were a fireman,” she said, parking her hands on her hips. He shoved a hand roughly through his hair, shook his head. “And I had no idea you were the photographer. You said you were an artist.” “I am!” she said, her voice rising. What the hell? “I can draw, and I do tattoos. I also happen to be good at shooting pictures. Besides, you said you were a bar owner,” she pointed out, as if they could both redo this colossal mistake by rehashing the moments they both could have been more honest. “Why didn’t you tell me more about yourself?” she countered. He didn’t answer. He moved closer, maybe a foot away now. The anger felt like a pulsating life force, but there was something else between them, too. Heat. And want. The nearness was intoxicating. She could reach out and touch his chest. That broad, sturdy chest that she’d loved having her hands all over. She was edgy now, nervous, as they stood like two sparring partners, tucked away in the back hallway of the coffee shop near the restrooms. She wanted him to touch her again, and she hated that she was still thinking of last night, and how they’d connected so deeply in bed. But also in their conversations all through the night and up to a few minutes ago when they were texting. She was torn between needing to leave and wanting him to pin her against the wall and bury her in kisses that made her weak in the knees. Too bad she could never do any of those things with him again.
Message from Lauren: I want to let you all in on a little secret about me. I love hotfiremen. I stare at hot fireman. I slow down when driving past thefire station to try to get a better look at the men inside. Whichmight explain why I wrote a sexy firefighter series! But all oglingand firemen lust aside, not only are firefighters sexy, they are alsobrave, courageous and active in their communities. As I wrote MELT FORHIM, I learned more about the work that volunteer fire departmentsaround the country do -- both in responding to emergencies and inhelping their communities. And because firefighters have given me somuch inspiration, I wanted to be able to give back with this book. That's why I will be donating half of all my proceeds from thepreorders and release week sales for MELT FOR HIM to the NVFCFirefighter Support Fund that supports the nation's volunteer fire andEMS departments. Together, I believe we can all make a difference andhelp support the men and women who serve our local communities andcome through for us when we need them most! xoxo Lauren
About MELT FOR HIM: He knows exactly how to make her burn… Fire captain and bar owner Becker Thomas usually spends his nights alone, trying to escape painful memories from his past. When he meets a sexy, free-spirited brunette outside his bar, he knows he’s found the perfect way to forget for one night. But when he later discovers the woman he’s itching for another night with is his best friend’s sister, everything comes to a halt. Just out of a toxic relationship, Megan Jansen is only in Hidden Oaks to visit her brother, photograph the firemen’s calendar, and then slip off to another adventure. The brooding man who gave her the best sex ever is an unexpected surprise. The problem is, he’s her brother’s friend and a fellow fireman, and Megan’s rule is no firemen. She knows she’s going to get burned …but keeping their hands off each other is easier said than done.
My Review: 4 Sexy Stars
I make it no secret that I love Lauren Blakely's books. I don't think that there is one that I haven't read and most are read within a few days of their release (if not before if I'm lucking enough to get the chance like I was with this one). She has a way with words that makes you feel the book, not just read the book. I really enjoyed this one. I loved how Becker and Megan meet. I loved that despite their best intentions to stay away from each other, that they can't deny the connection they feel with each other. I loved that there was a firemen's calendar photo shoot (who doesn't right?!?!). What is great about this book and most of Lauren Blakely's books is that the characters, despite being mostly strong people, have a few vulnerabilities that they are able to share with the other and they don't hurt each other because of those things, but help build each other up to be complete people. This book was fun and sexy and serious and emotional in just the right amount. I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a quick sexy read. On another note, I think Trey and Clay still top the list of my favorite Blakely Boys, but Becker is definitely pretty high on the list now too. -J
