A wallflower gets seduction tips from a playboy athlete—until love changes the rules.

Socially awkward Joellen Bixby has a date every Saturday—with her cat, a pint of ice cream, and fantasies of the way-too-handsome Michael Maddox. She’d give anything to win over the unattainable CEO of her firm, but how can she when she blends in so well with her cubicle? The answer may be closer than she thinks.

Cameron McGregor is a cocky, tattooed Scottish rugby captain who just moved in next door. He’s not Jo’s type—at all—but the notorious playboy is offering to teach the wallflower everything he knows about inspiring desire. Though a lot of women have rumpled Cam’s kilt, Jo is special. Far from the ugly duckling she thinks she is, in Cam’s eyes she’s sharp, funny, and effortlessly sexy. Now, thanks to him, Jo is blooming with confidence and has the man of her dreams within reach.

Unfortunately for Cam, he’s just helped to push the woman of his dreams into the arms of another man—and now he’s in the fight of his life to keep this beauty from getting away.


My kryptonite is a slow burn romance, add a heroine who thinks she is a plain jane when she clearly isn’t, and a sexy arrogant athlete (who also happens to be Scottish), and I am in a place where I hear angels sing and I am laying on a fluffy cloud.

I absolutely adore a journey through the many changes of a new relationship. In this case, it’s an enemies-to friends-to unrequited love-to lovers-to actual full-blown love. It was a fabulous ride to be on, and whilst it was funny, sweet, and sexy – it was also quite emotional.

Two perfectly imperfect main characters who find their way to each other through insecurities and a lack of real self-belief.

Cameron was the perfect champion – he saw the beauty in Joellen, as I the reader did, but most importantly he helped her see the beauty in herself that she couldn’t see before and taught her that until she loved herself and stopped pleasing others to her own detriment, she would never be happy.

Joellen, on the other hand, saw through Cameron’s confidence and saw the really kind and generous soul beneath his media persona and I felt so bad for him when she could only see him as a friend, it was pure angst.

A fabulous book that teaches us that being our true selves is the only way to be truly happy.

I need more, I adore this series, and the talent of Geissinger has impressed me completely.

Melt for You is a standalone contemporary romance, told from first person POV.
