After running away from home and the boy who broke her heart, Evan Kennedy has kick-started the perfect new life with her celebrity fiance. So what if said fiance prefers guys? She knew the deal when they got engaged. And with her ticket to The Ranch, an exclusive resort where any fantasy can be satisfied, she can find someone to fulfill her less-than-traditional desires on the side.

She just never expected that man to be Jace Austin, her old heart-breaker–all grown up, hard-bodied, and holding out a collar. She knows it’s a world-class bad idea–especially since Jace has brought along his buddy Andre, who’s every bit as irresistible. But if they can stick to the no-strings rules, so can she.

Too bad Jace has never been so good with rules. Evan is convinced “forever” is a word used only in greeting cards, but Jace and Andre have one last fantasy of hers left to fulfill. It’s time to go big or go home. And neither man has ever been a fan of going home.

1thoughtsEvan’s one of those kids who went through the system and saw it all. Her last stop on the foster train just so happened to be Jace’s home. She lived with his family for a year. Everything was looking up for her, until her and Jace slept together and his parents found them in bed. Jace was kicked out of the house and Evan ran away, never to be heard from again. Now, 12 years later, their paths cross again and the attraction is still there. Only, she’s promised her loyalty to the boy who saved her on the streets. The same guy who is well known for his marriage advice as well as his exuberant relationship with his fiance, Evan.

This is a great addition to Loving on the Edge. There’s conflict all around when it comes to the main characters. Not only is Evan engaged to her gay best friend to keep that perfect image alive for his career but Jace is still torn up over the brutal divorce with his wife, who’s still sucking him dry. Add on top of that his friend, Andre, and menage partner who’s secretly been holding a torch for him, and you have drama bombs blowing up everywhere.

Yeah, there’s a lot that goes on in this story without even talking about all the amazingly steamy scenes. Which by the way, were fan-yourself hot. Roni definitely knows how to write a behind closed doors scene and make the reader feel like they were there. No I take that back, you feel like you were them in that scene. Yup, the woman knows how to write.

The characters had their flaws and I think that was what really the beautiful part of this story. It wasn’t just one dimensional problems either. There was more than meets the eye with these characters.

My only complaint is the whole baby thing. It felt disconnected to the story. The author brings it up like it’s going to be something big with the story and all it does is just add unnecessary drama to an already amazing story. I think the whole thing could have been taken out completely since it didn’t seem to add a purpose to the story.

3 Thoughts on “Review: Melt Into You by Roni Loren

  1. What a complex story. I like the deep history too, as well as the marriage in crisis angle. Why
    Haven’t I heard of this before???

  2. Oh I love this series. I need to go back and read the early ones. I came in mid series and have been keeping up since then and enjoyed their follow up novella that came out recently I’d not seen this cover before. The one I have has people on it which I liked 😀 Now just to read it. lol

    • I will admit I have been jumping in all over the place with this series. I started with the 5th book, then read the 2nd. I bought another book from the series, not sure which one it is. I love that they can be read as stand-alone novels since I’m all over the place. LoL
