Sandra's Review

The Deal is the third book in the Manhattan Nights series by one of my favorite suspense romance authors, Natalie Wrye. Even though this is the third book, it can be read as a standalone. If you did read the previous books then you have already met Jesse and Marilyn and like me, you have been waiting for their story.
Five years. That’s how long it’s been since Jesse and Marilyn were in the same room. She was back in Manhattan after scandal hit the internet. This one bigger than the others. She was an actress in L.A after-all. But this time it was too much. She planned to be in Manhattan a day later to kick off her best friend’s wedding weekend. So what if she leaves a day early, no big deal, right? Wrong. That one day must cost her everything she worked hard for in LA.
Jesse is working on the biggest case of his life. And it’s personal. Chris Jackson needed to be locked up for the rest of his life for what he has done to so many families. He didn’t have time for distractions. And walking in on Marilyn in the shower was a big one. It’s been five years since he has seen her up close but over the years he has thought after her. Her sass. Her body. Her bite. And now she was here. He was so fucked. He doesn’t want to want her. She is off-limits. Always has been since her brother is his best friend and boss. But, maybe a deal will change everything.
They both needed a cleaner reputation. An engagement might just do the trick. It has to. I mean what could go wrong? It’s the perfect plan. No feelings. No rules. No forevers.
Damn. Natalie gets me every time. When I think I solved the puzzle, I get hit with a big fat…no you didn’t! And I love that. I want to be surprised. Even the characters surprise me. I knew Marilyn wasn’t a delicate flower but I didn’t realize how kick ass she really is. And Jesse. He is hot and cold on the outside but on the inside he runs hot, hot, hot. But that doesn’t mean I don’t want to smack him once in a while.
Overall…it’s a great addition to the series. It’s sassy, flirty, sexy, and suspenseful.
Quotes:
Her fingernails scrape the surface of my scalp, almost sinking, and the little scratches turn me on, making me want to punish her, pleasure her—possess her with everything I’ve got.
“Stop?” I bend at the knee. “Duchess, I’m just getting started.”
It’s a fear I never saw coming, a fate I’d hoped I could avoid.

The Deal is the third book in the Manhattan series by the fabulous and talented Natalie Wrye. We met both Jesse and Marilyn in the previous books and I have been waiting for their story! They have a history that I was dying to know! Now they are seeing each other after five years and the attraction is still there. But so are the secrets. Jesse needs to concentrate on his job and Marilyn needs to get her life back on track after a scandal. What’s the perfect way? Make a deal with the sexiest woman you’ve ever met. What could go wrong? You definitely won’t want to touch her and kiss and her you won’t fall for her. Marilyn is still living in the past. She sees something in herself that no one else does and she can’t seem to get out of her own way sometimes. But Jesse sees her and she doesn’t want that to stop. Too bad he doesn’t want her the way she wants him. Right? Oh so wrong! I loved this story! The flirting and sexy banter was perfection. Jesse is sexy, brooding and a little sweet. Marilyn is gorgeous but flawed in the best way. Together they balance each other out. I’m already looking forward to what’s next!

Excerpt

 

“Jesse, wait,” she breathes. “What are we doing here?”
I don’t hesitate. “What every soon-to-be married man and woman would do.”
She closes her eyes slowly, opening them again with a sigh. “But we’re not married. We’re not actually engaged. We’re not anything.”
“Don’t say that,” I almost bark. “We’re not ‘not anything.’”
Her stare narrows. “Then what are we?”
“I don’t know what you are,” I confess. “But I’m a man who can’t keep his hands off you. Who might die if he has to spend another second not doing to you all the things he’s dreamed…”

I should have died.
I should have been
forgotten.
But I didn’t, and I
wasn’t.
Living the life most women only dream about, I was madly in
love with my soulmate—Asher Valentine—amazing husband, loving father, and
rock’s favorite kick-ass front man. A man who loved me every day, in every way,
since we first met as teens fifteen years ago. We were blessed with a beautiful
daughter who was the light of our life. My all-female rock band was tearing up
the charts.
Then tragedy struck, and I lost it all.
Now all I have is a stack of journals, an antique key, and a
big black void where my memories should be.
Used to be.
And I have him—this man with wild hair, tattoos from head to
toe, a soft voice, and an even softer touch that gives me butterflies. He’s
clearly hopelessly in love with his wife.
I’m told that’s me.
But that wife is gone, and she took everything they once
had, leaving me in her place.
A broken replacement. A new version that doesn’t quite fit.
I’m slowly falling in love with him, but will he ever truly
love me? Or will he forever be in love
with her, the phantom woman who
haunts us both?

Remember
that time you accidentally sexted your in-laws?
Yeah. I just did that. Except worse. Now my million social media followers are reading
and sharing the rude, smartass message I meant to send privately to my little
sister…and I’m officially public enemy number one.
I’m Beck Ryder. Former boy bander. Underwear model. Fashion mogul. And I just buried my

didn’t see coming.
Now it’s time to grovel and apologize publicly on social media and hope that those same
followers who helped start the raging shitstorm will help calm the waters.
Because Sarah doesn’t want the spotlight. For very good reasons that I can’t tell you

Trying to start a relationship in the era of the twitterazzi isn’t all that it’s cracked

But when a routine blood test comes back with a false positive, she decides to
take some time off to do the things she’s always wanted to do: taste the famous

Genre: Contemporary Romance/Enemies-to-Lovers
Release Date: March 26, 2019

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.

Release Day Blitz, 5 Heart Reviews & *Giveaway* – The Panty Melter, Lili Valente

March 26, 2019 By

 

Title: The Panty Melter
Author: Lili Valente
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Enemies-to-Lovers
Release Date: March 26, 2019
Blurb

 

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.
