I don’t  date alpha males.
Especially not alpha males with egos the size of Jupiter, who also happen to be my boss’s
big brother.
Deacon 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.
Surely 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
again?
No,  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?

Kara's Review

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.”

 

Sandra's Review

The Panty Melter is the fourth book in the Hunter Brothers series by one of my favorite authors, Lili Valente. The Panty Melter can be read as standalone but I highly recommend reading the previous book as well. They are so fucking good. Lili has a way of making me laugh and swoon all at the same time.
Deacon is back to being a civilian after serving twenty-five years in the military, twenty of those he was in and out of the county on deployment. Violet was married for twenty years and it’s been two years since her divorce. She has been dating duds since then so when she found herself in an attic with a man who sets her body on fire she wants more. Until, she figures out who the sexy stranger is. Deacon Hunter. Her boss’s older brother. A man who most definitely isn’t looking for what she is. A meaningful relationship.
(Yes. She knows going to an attic with a stranger isn’t exactly giving him that vibe either.)
Deacon wants her. So bad. Even if she drives him absolutely crazy! He can’t stop thinking about her. The way she felt. They way she touched him. Her smile. Her sweetness. Her crazy. But, can he show her that he could be the man she is looking for?
Omg! I loved this one. Deacon and Violet’s chemistry is off the charts hot! Their banter is hilarious. And it is awesome that the characters are older. Deacon is forty-five and Violet is forty. They are both single parents to grown ass kids. They know what they want. They don’t want to play games. Well, unless it’s on the bedroom.
Overall…it’s one of my favorites in the series! The characters are lovable. The story is beautiful and sexy. The writing is so good! Lili always throws in some unique situations that make me laugh, cry, and swoon.
P.S. it’s very cool to read about the County I live in! Even the city.
Quotes:
She can give me the cold shoulder all she wants today, but we both know that last night I set her on fire.
“I’m a lady on the street, Mr. Hunter. Save your dirty jokes for my kitchen, where they belong.”
Life, man. Sometimes you have to say fuck this shit and just eat all the ice cream. All of it.
