Melt for You (Boys of the South, #7) by Marquita Valentine

Melt For You

In small towns, dirty little secrets have a way of being discovered… 

I’m not proud of how I make my money. Never in a million years would I have imagined myself making thousands of dollars escorting society women around, but pride comes second to survival, and my family needs the money.

I only have one rule: I won’t take money for sex.

When a beautiful girl with sadness in her eyes moves into the house next door, I’ll be her handyman. But I won’t let her get close to me--no matter how much I want to. There are enough problems in my life already.

Now I have a second rule: I won’t taint anyone so pure.

But as the days lengthen and I continue repairing her house, Brooklyn also finds ways to break down my walls. The sparks between us are undeniable. Her loss and my lies may not sound good on paper, but they are explosive in bed.

And when my secret gets out, we'll have to fight to survive the fire it ignites.

Parker and Brooklyn find each other when they are both broken down emotionally. Parker is hiding a huge secret and he his running as fast and far as he possibly can go. Brooklyn is grieving her military husband's death. Neither one is looking for love, but the physical attraction is absolutely combustible between the two of them. Can they figure out how to make it work? Will their love end before it has even had a chance? Loving the Boys of the South Series. I'm definitely looking forward to reading more books in this series. I was given an ARC of this book in order to give an honest review. All conclusions are mine and mine alone. Lori P

Need You Tonight was a great little second chance story. It started off sad, with the death of Brooklyn's husband and her trying to cope with the loss, but we don't spend a lot of time mourning his death. I was glad to see that. If the book had stayed in the sad and depressing too long, it would have been a very different read. Instead, it was more hopeful, with a two-year time gap we didn't live along with Brooklyn. When we are introduced to her again, it's when she's moved into Forrestville and meets Parker. She's not entirely moved on from the loss, but she's willing to make changes and try to live again. There are some sad moments throughout, but overall the book has a positive and hopeful vibe. I'm glad it was that, and not overly angsty.  I loved Parker and Brooklyn together. I mean, I loved them separately, but they were even better together. Their relationship did move a little fast for me, but when it's right, it's right. I definitely wouldn't consider it instalove, more like giving in to attraction. They were both moving on from painful things in their pasts and I liked how they helped each other through, even if Brooklyn might not have known his history when they met. These two were sweet and sexy together. It wasn't all sunshine and roses, but it was real and believable.  Need You Tonight was a quick and sexy read. Fans of the series will enjoy catching up with some of their favorite characters and couples from the previous books. I know I did. Marquita Valentine's Boys of the South series has grown into one of my favorite in the genre. It's sexy and sweet with likable, relatable characters in a small-town setting that reminds me a lot of home. I'm excited to see what's next!  I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

The Boys of the South series by Marquita Valentine is one that I have thoroughly enjoyed.  The latest installment, Need You Tonight, is Parker Morgan's story, and I have been dying to read it.  Parker is the brother of Cole Morgan, who we met at the very beginning of the series in Live for You and Only for You, the books that started it all.  In each subsequent companion novel we have gotten to know one of the guys, who are all friends, and the girl he falls in love with.  Parker Morgan has appeared in each novel and I've really grown to love him.  He's had a rough life, and in Need You Tonight, we find out just how rough he has had it and the things he has felt he had to in order for his family to survive.  We also get to find out just how hot, sexy, and drool-worthy he really is.  The female main character is Brooklyn Reeves, a young war-widow whose world had been shattered a few years previously.  Moving to Forrestville is supposed to be her new beginning, but the last thing she expects is to meet the hot new neighbor/handyman with his panty-melting smile, eyes that mesmerize you, and broody attitude.  Then again, Brooklyn is far from the old white-haired lady Parker was expecting to.  There story is heartbreaking, beautiful, romantic, and of course steamy.  I thoroughly enjoyed watching these two characters who thought their pasts would forever keep them from loving anyone again, come together and find love despite the fear and all the hurdles, bumps, and boulders they have to face in the process.  Need you Tonight is a wonderful addition to this series and is something than both fans of the series and fans of contemporary romance will want to check out.

A young widowed woman finds love again with a man with his own dark past. A short, simple storyline for such an emotional read. Between that and the cover, I decided to try it out. I can't really expand on the storyline without giving anything away really, just suffice it to say, it was simple, but it didn't need to be much more involved. The dramas, misunderstandings, and hurt between a blooming couple all come in this novel and in such a way as to not leave you disastified. I like Brooklyn although I didn't relate well with her, exactly. I felt a bit disconnected from her. I really liked Parker, but then again, I do like damaged men in novels. Both were well rounded and had thorough histories, although I'm still a bit confused on why exactly Brooklyn was a bit distant with her parents. Sad to say, though, my favorite character in the novel was not a major character. It was Brooklyn's boss. ^_^; The chemistry was definitely there, although I felt they went from confusion to jumping each other in such a confusing way sometimes, I wondered if I had skipped something and would go back to reread the scene. The writing overall was well-done, although some of the more dramatic dialog felt a bit forced to me. A few other places had some awkwardness but the overall feeling disappeared once the story moved along. Overall, I really enjoyed the read and want to go back and read the rest in the series. 4 stars! *I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review*

Parker and Brooklyn are made for each other and not only do they make great friends but they help heal each other.  Brooklyn is a widow who lost her husband (a U.S. Marine) just days before he was due home and two years later moved for a fresh start.  Parker has just finished his last job as an escort and is planning on moving out of state at the end of summer.  First Parker is going to help the widow moving into Miss Voilet's house but he is in for a shock when he meets Brooklyn. The ride they go on together is definitely worth the read and I recommend it! Of note, this would have been a full on 5 star rating from me if it wasn't for the constant changing POV which I found confusing and dizzying and the spelling errors.

I love this series and I've been waiting for this book for a long time. This book tore my heart apart and mended it over and over. I'm so glad we got to learn Parker's story and he truly got the ending he deserved.

Loved, loved, loved this book! Parker's story is a great addition to the Boys of the South series. Parker is ready to get out of Forrestville as soon as he can, until Brooklyn Reeve's shows up. She's a grieving widow and he knows he should stay far far away from her but he can't. The pull is too strong but is it enough to overcome her grief and his sordid past? A fantastic story that I recommend to everyone!
