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.

Lauren Blakely definitely turned up the heat in Melt For Him! This beautiful, sizzling romance had me grinning from ear to ear. In true Lauren Blakely fashion, she hits us with these smoking hot alpha males and these kick ass, strong heroines that can hold their own. There is no over the top angst in this book, making it a fast-paced, very entertaining, VERY sexy read! Perfect for summer! Perfect for pretty much any season now that I think about it.
A man held back by the horrors of his past, and the woman who forces him to see past it and live in the present. Fire captain Becker Thomas can’t seem to get over the painful memories from his past. Nightmares and flashbacks paralyze him from moving on. When he spots a beautiful woman practically stripping outside of his bar, the only thoughts in his mind is on her beautiful, banging body.
Megan Jansen is just passing through her hometown to help out with a photo shoot. Never one to stay put, she has every intention of getting it done and moving on to the next adventure. When she first meets the hunky, gorgeous bar owner, she has no idea that he risks his life on a daily basis. Just like Becker, her past threatens to halt this relationship before it even starts. Can they both get over their fears and focus on their present…together? In trying to stay away from each other, they are fooling themselves. The connection they share is too strong, too combustible, that there is no denying it anymore.
Melt for Him by Lauren Blakely will set your heart and your emotions on fire with this scorching hot, touching new romance. I certainly enjoyed the journey that Ms. Blakely took us on with Becker and Megan. I’m excited to see what she has in store for Megan’s brother Travis. He seems like a tough egg to crack, and I’m definitely eager to learn more. If I had one request for Ms. Blakely, it would be, can I PLEASE get a copy of the Firefighter Calendar? I will pay TOP DOLLAR woman!
She moaned as he spread his fingers across the soft flesh of her belly. Shivering under his touch, her back bowed and her hips jutted out.
It was an invitation, one he was damn sure he had no choice but to RSVP to. He ran his fingertips along her skin, tracing her belly button, her hips, the edge of the waistband of her shorts. He dipped his head to her neck and licked a path up her neck, her skin so hot. “I want you so much. More than I should. More than I’m supposed to. But I just don’t care because right now I want to hear the sweet, sexy sounds you make when I touch you,” he said, his voice gravelly.
“I can’t stop, either. So don’t you dare,” she said. She grappled at his shirt, her hands frantic as she pulled and tugged at his clothes, as if she couldn’t get him near enough. He felt her fingers grasping at his shorts, jerking him even closer.
He groaned as he pressed against her, his cock hard and heavy, and he wished he had a condom with him, so he could strip off her clothes, pull down his shorts, and thrust into her. He slid his hand between her legs, feeling the heat of her desire through her shorts. She gasped the second he made contact; she was so ready to have him inside her.
She moaned again, and it started as a long, low sigh that became his name.“Becker.”
“Do you have any idea how much I want to be inside you?”
She nodded against him. “As much as I want you there,” she answered quickly, her voice ragged.
“I want to bury myself inside you right now. I want to feel you gripping me,” he whispered huskily against her neck.
“And then?” she asked, rocking against his hand, greedily seeking out his fingers even through the layers between them.
“You’ll give yourself to me, spread your legs wide open, take me all the way in.”
“I will,” she said, as she shuddered in his arms. He wrapped a hand around her waist, keeping her steady.
“Then I’ll kiss you while I fuck you,” he whispered into her ear.
She gasped, and wriggled her body closer to his. “I want that. All of it. I want fucking and kissing,” she said, her breathing turning more erratic.
“I’ll fuck you like I kiss you, and kiss you like I fuck you. With nothing held back,” he said, his tongue darting against the salty skin of her neck as she trembled against him.
“Do that to me now,” she said, her breathing turning erratic, her sounds reminding him how close they were flirting with danger.
Like the moment before a back draft.
Message from Lauren:
I want to let you all in on a little secret about me. I love hot firemen. I stare at hot fireman. I slow down when driving past the fire station to try to get a better look at the men inside. Which might explain why I wrote a sexy firefighter series! But all ogling and firemen lust aside, not only are firefighters sexy, they are also brave, courageous and active in their communities. As I wrote MELT FOR HIM, I learned more about the work that volunteer fire departments around the country do — both in responding to emergencies and in helping their communities. And because firefighters have given me so much 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 the preorders and release week sales for MELT FOR HIM to the NVFC Firefighter Support Fund that supports the nation’s volunteer fire and EMS departments. Together, I believe we can all make a difference and help support the men and women who serve our local communities and come through for us when we need them most!
