TITLE - Melt For You
AUTHOR - 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.
“The ugly duckling and the rugby player, 5 stars”
Joellen is not classically beautiful like her sister or model mother. Her whole life she’s been put down by her family for not fitting their standards and being “sensitive”. She’s been secretly in love with he boss for over ten years and has never really given anyone a chance until Cam. Under the ruse of helping her score her dream guy Cam takes her under his wing and turns her into the swan she really is. The question is will she stay with Cam or go for the guy she really doesn’t know but believes she loves?
I loved Cam. He was a freaking champ and honestly, I don’t think I’ve read a character in quite some time who can play the game like Cam can. He was worming his way under her skin without her ever noticing and it was brilliant. The question is will it click into place before his time is up in the states?
