Melt by Deborah Bladon

“I saw my boss naked.

Actually, most of the women who work at Matiz Cosmetics have. It’s understandable since the pictures went viral almost immediately after being posted online. Ryker Moore and his social media star girlfriend were photographed on a private beach in the Caribbean.

No swimsuits, no hats, and no bad camera angles.

Ryker’s back in New York City and his relationship is over.

The fact that he’s single shouldn’t matter to me, but it does. It’s not because I’ve secretly wanted him since I landed this job. It has absolutely nothing to do with that one kiss we shared under the mistletoe at the holiday party last year.
It matters because of the way he looks at me when he doesn’t think I’m paying attention. That melts my heart but I know enough about Ryker to realize he’s trouble.

He’s the last thing I need, but that has nothing to do with what I want, does it? ”


This book was great in the beginning. From the synopsis, I thought “Wow, I love that kind of book! Must read now!” I’m glad I felt that way, but, unfortunately, it wasn’t the best.

Things were good in the beginning. I liked the characters and how they were introduced. I like their backstory and how things went down in the past. It makes for this kind of story.

Reading on, I felt like there was some lack of chemistry. It was hard to read through because I just couldn’t see it in my head. It was a little too much for me. It was pretty back and forth, which I usually enjoy, but this time, it was just a lot.

Lastly, I am a stickler for editing issues. I will knock stars off if there is one mess up. There are problems with self-publishing because it sometimes doesn’t get edited. That’s how I felt with this one. I wish it was read a little better.

Overall, I liked the idea of this story. It could’ve been better, and I hope in the future, Deborah Bladon checks the editing some more.

Rating: 3.5/5 stars.
