The Panty Melter is the fourth book in the Hunter Brothers series by the talented, fabulous and hilarious Lili Valente. I’ve been waiting for Deacon’s story. He’s the oldest brother, at forty-five, and the one who took care of his younger brothers with his sternness, domineering and jerky tendencies. He’s been single for a long time and a single father who loves his boys. He wasn’t always there for him when he was deployed, but he would do anything for them. Violet works for his brother. She’s a recently divorced single mom at the age of forty. She thinks Deacon is like her ex and she wants no part of that even if just being near him has her clenching her thighs and constantly stopping herself from jumping him. Deacon likes Violet. She gorgeous, smart, a great mom. But she hates him and he has no idea why. He wants her and it’s more than their combustible chemistry. He wants to date her. Take her out. She wants stop wanting him. Violet starts to see that Deacon isn’t who she thought he was. He’s kind, sweet, thoughtful and caring. He’s also the sexiest man she’s ever seen and she can’t stop kissing him. That’s it! She’s giving in and after one date, she stops fighting and lets it happen. It’s fun, it’s sexy, it’s hot. It’s like nothing she ever had before. Maybe being divorced and forty isn’t so bad. Maybe this is her chance at real happiness. Deacon is an adult. He knows what he wants and he goes after. He wants Violet and now that she’s his, he’s never letting her go. When obstacles keep getting in their way, can they make it over them together? I loved this story for so many reasons. One, they are older, in their forties, like me, and there aren’t enough romances out there with older characters. Two, they are mature, rational adults that don’t stop talking, run away or give up. It’s refreshing to read about adults having an adult relationship. Third, it’s hilarious and sexy. Deacon is my favorite Hunter brother and I want him for myself! He’s sexy, smart, fit, can sing (swoon), and would do anything for the people he cares about, no questions asked. Lili Valente is one of my go-to-authors and she always gives me what I need: humor, sexiness, fun, friendship, family, loveable characters and hilariousness!
“It’s ok, man. Some wild horses just can’t be broken.”
“I don’t want to break her; I want to date her.”
There jerking off is getting embarrassing. I couldn’t meet my own gaze in the mirror while I was shaving. Something has to be done. ASAP.
I want to show him with my lips, teeth, and tongue just how much I can’t stand him.
“But we should probably see if we can make it through lunch without wanting to kill each other first.”
“I never want to kill you. Just strangle you a little. Gently. Until you stop fighting with me and let me kiss you again.”
“The kissing is nice.”
“Nice isn’t the word I would use.”
