Book Review: Melt for Him (Fighting Fire #2) by Lauren Blakely

Fire Captain Becker is a bit of a loner. Sure he has his bar and the guys at the firehouse, but most of them time he prefers being solo. The weight of past losses always on his mind and pulling him down. Megan is a wanderer and doesn't stick around anywhere long enough to put down roots. Or get close to anyone. She is back in her hometown for a few weeks to visit family and shoot the upcoming firemen calendar. Neither of them is looking for any kind of relationship, but maybe a night or two with each other, virtual strangers, is just what they need. That is until they find out who the other truly is. She is his best friend's sister and he is a fire fighter, someone she promise herself to steer clear of.

I love a good, sexy fireman story and Melt for Him was the perfect combination of steamy and a little bit sweet. Becker has got the sexy brooding thing down pat underneath that lies a compassionate men. He is also a giver, and ladies, who doesn't love a giver in bed? I had mixed feelings with Megan as she was just a little bit harder for me to connect with. I understood her fear but I was annoyed with her choices and how she let that fear control her. I did love her quirkiness and her spirit though.

I do love all of Lauren's books and this was another one that I enjoyed. It made for a steamy and perfect afternoon read for me while enjoying the first week of having my kids back in school. I can only hope that Lauren will give us some more sexy fireman and more books in this series.

Favorite Quotes
"Where are my manners? A woman like you - I'm not just going to fuck you. I'm going to pleasure every inch of you. I'm going to bury my face between those beautiful legs first. I'm not going to skip that part."

"Tell me something. Do you want me to spread you out on the bed? Take you on all fours? Bend you over? Or do you want to throw me down on the bed, climb on top of me and ride me into oblivion?"

"I don't want you thinking. I want you feeling, because if you're thinking then I'm not doing it right."
