5 Insatiable CROWNS
This is the first book by Melanie that I have read, and I have to say it won’t be my last. Melanie has created the perfect mixture of heat, heart and angst that will keep you wanting more. This story seriously checked all the boxes for me, and I couldn’t be happier. Melanie’s words will draw you completely into the story and won’t let you go until the last page!!
But she was like gravity—no matter what I did, I couldn’t fight the physical pull of her. I was never going to win.
Noah and Meg were complete Perfection. Friends since high school they are at home with each other and utterly comfortable. They don’t want to mess up their friendship but at the same time there has always been an attraction between them, one that they’ve fought for years. Well when Meg comes home for her sister’s wedding they cave into their attraction and all bets are off. I’m not normally a huge fan of friends to lovers, but the way that Melanie wrote them you can’t help but fall in love with them.
The intense heat between them was pure freaking FIRE!! You could feel the chemistry jump off the pages and heat your skin with its intensity. Melanie wrote it so well it felt like a completely natural progression from their interactions in the story.
“Cum again for me,” I demanded. “Let me feel you.”
I loved everything about this book. The whole story felt natural and the progression from friends to lovers was perfect. Melanie has a phenomenal way with words that will draw you in and hold you completely captivated. The raw angst from this story will have you aching down to your soul. And only Melanie’s words will help sooth that ache. As I said before this is the first book by Melanie that I have read, apparently, I’ve been living under a rock. So please excuse me while I go and read her entire back list…. Don’t miss out on this sensational friends to lovers romance that will give you Every. Single. One. Of. The. FEELS……
4.5 HOTTTTT CROWNS
HOLY!! This has to be one of the hottest Melanie Harlow books I have read. I always tout Harlow as being the perfect blend of sweet and steamy. She brings the small town romance feel with all the heat I need in the bedroom, but this one. This one. I wasn’t prepared.
The steam factor is upped due in large part to Noah. I died for this hero. He was perfection, with his care for his brother, his profession as a cop, and his predilections in the bedroom. There wasn’t a bad thing I could say about him. His hang-ups are understandable, well-developed through his characterization.
Meg is the next Sawyer sister to find love. I enjoyed her character overall, and I loved that she took ownership of what she liked in the bedroom. She is also brave enough and willing enough to take a chance on her heart and the future she wants.
Insatiable is a bit of friends to lover, small-town, second chance-ish all rolled into one. There is a bit of it all. And while, the conflict is expected, I did love the overall idea behind the heroine’s choices. I love that she made decisions based on more than just her feelings for Noah, but also for herself. I do wish that the groveling and apology, the redemption was a bit longer or more poignant. It was a bit too quick.
Insatiable has been my absolute favorite of the standalones in the Cloverleigh Farms series. I love the family, the world, and this couple in particular.
I didn’t mean to see him naked–it was an accident.
It had to be, right?
Because Noah McCormick and I have never been anything more than friends. In all the years I’ve known him, he’s never once laid a finger on me. And even though he was a cute lifeguard at 16 and a hotter-than-hell sheriff’s deputy at 34, he’s always been that protective guy I could trust to keep his hands to himself. I never wanted to mess with that.
Until I walked in on him getting out of the shower and saw his hard, muscular body totally bare and dripping wet. At that moment I never wanted to mess with anything so badly in my entire life.
I should have covered my eyes. Said I was sorry. At the very least, I could have handed him a towel.
After all, I was only in town for a few days, and he was just doing me a favor by escorting me to my sister’s wedding. It wasn’t a real date.
But I didn’t apologize. And he didn’t cover up.
(Talk about a hot mess.)
After all those years of being just friends, suddenly we’re insatiable.
He’s made it clear he’s not interested in romance. Which is fine with me because
I’ve got a plane ticket back to my real life at the end of the week.
It’s all in fun…or is it?
