Release Blitz & Reviews - The Panty Melter - Lili Valente

Title: The Panty Melter
Author: Lili Valente
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Enemies-to-Lovers

Release Date: March 26, 2019


I don’t
date alpha males.
not alpha males with egos the size of Jupiter, who also happen to be my boss’s
big brother.

Hunter is domineering. Condescending. Infuriating.

And yet I
can’t seem to keep my panties on for five minutes when we’re alone together.

He keeps
melting them right off. With that sexy voice, those confident hands, the way he
brings my body wildly to life, he’s proved my libido hasn’t gone into
permanent, post-divorce hibernation after all.

there’s no harm in being enemies with benefits… Right?

When Violet
Boden asks me to take her Divorce Virginity, the only thing I can think is—come

seriously, come again.

And again
and again, until both of us are so satisfied we can’t remember the people who
did us wrong.

Best if we
keep conversation to a minimum, though, considering I drive her crazy. She
drives me crazy sometimes, too. But she’s also sweet, loyal, fearless, and so
much fun she’s making it damn hard not to fall for her.

But how to
convince a woman who’s put me in the emotional no-fly zone that I deserve a
place in her heart?

Louise's Review:

The Panty Melter is the 4th book in the Hunter Brothers series, I haven’t previously read books 1-3 but I don’t feel like I missed any vital part of this story as it appears, they are all standalones; I will go back and read them though as I like the sound of all these brothers.

Deacon and Violet are both trying to find their feet; both divorced and parents. Getting back into the dating game isn’t easy especially when your stood up. Having a quick roll around with a masked stranger to find out he is everything that Violet does not want or need in her life. When their paths continue to cross, they start to catch feelings; when they finally find their ground both of their worlds are rocked leaving them wondering if there is any future for them.

This is a new to me author and I personally enjoyed reading their story; it was fast paced and refreshing to read a story about a couple in their 40’s. 

I look forward to reading more from Valente.

Erin's Review:

I was excited to read this book! I had the pleasure of reading a book Lili Valente co-wrote with Pippa Grant and loved it, so I couldn’t wait to read something by just Ms. Valente. She did not disappoint. She brought a later in life enemies to lovers book to a laugh out loud happily ever after. 

This starts out as a enemies to lovers type of book, but with so many subtle plot twists that keep you reading and working hard to keep all the details straight! I could tell this was part of a series, and wish I had read from the beginning first, as I did have a bit of trouble keeping all the characters straight, and I feel perhaps reading them in order would have helped with that. 

Violet is a lovely divorced mother who is ready to move on and get some sexy on. She seems like a great mother to her daughters, and does her best to co-parent. She has a strong love of animals and is a vegetarian. She’s strong in her beliefs and attitude, and has an amazing set of friends to see her through her divorce and her life after. Deacon is a cocky, self sure, no filter, alpha kind of guy. And unfortunately he keeps running into Violet and their verbal sparring and ability to annoy each other keeps them spinning in circles. Despite Deacon’s ability to rub Violet the wrong way, he is a good man and widowed father. And when they take the time to stop annoying each other, they find each other a quite intriguing.

These two definitely have chemistry, which starts out as annoyance and moves to more. But as their interactions continue and they see each other in new light, and Violet makes her move. It starts out a bit forced, but honestly, that works for these characters and their situations. And then things heat up quite nicely with their heated words and actions. Gives me hope for my age group!

While I loved the overall story, there were a few slow spots to the story, or spots where I couldn’t keep everything straight. Again, possible due to not reading the first three books in the series first. But overall I loved the storyline and interesting plot twists. Ms. Valente definitely writes some very comedic dialogue and situations, but can also make the serious situations relatable and understandable.

I think I’d like to go back and read the beginning of the series. My tastes in books keeps evolving and I’ve read the gamut from historical to young adult to college and this one of my first books with characters that had older children and were older than me. It was well written and I enjoyed it
