You scream. I scream. We all scream during … well, you get the point.
After a failed eight-year relationship and a cross-country move, the last thing I’m looking for as a single mom is a new flame. In fact, diapers, walls marked in crayon, and daycare pickup are the only things on my to-do list.
Enter Jake Brady, your friendly neighborhood food truck owner whose dimples and delicacies won’t seem to leave well enough alone. With more popularity than the president, his wine-infused sweet treats have our nation’s capital hooked. He’s spontaneous, smug and all-American gorgeous; a dangerous combination considering he has no interest in taking on the responsibilities that rule my life.
But when we can’t seem to sample enough of each other’s … desserts, things start to get complicated. Jake is biting off more than he can chew, and when I watch him with my daughter, I can’t seem to freeze my melting heart.
Maybe it’s his waffle cone. Maybe it’s his … banana split. Either way, I think I’m in trouble with a cherry on top.
I requested this ARC for the cover alone. I’m not going to lie. It’s just so pretty with the colors of the ice cream and the pinky coral background. And the pages between the covers certainly did not disappoint!
Jake and Samantha have a chemistry that just melts off the pages (see what I did there 😉😉😉). I loved their connection and I especially liked the road that Aarons’ took to get them together. It wasn’t predictable, and didn’t make me feel like I was reading “just another romance.” The approach was fresh and completely entertaining. Plus I love that it centered around a food truck and ice cream. It’s really the perfect read to finish off these last few weeks of summer!
Aarons writing was smooth and the story flowed really well. I read it in mostly one sitting, not even realizing how late into the night it had gotten. It made me forget where I was, and completely immersed me in the pages!
All in all, I really enjoyed Melt and thought it was a fun, enticing read that anyone could enjoy!
