You scream. I scream. We all scream during … well, you get the point.After a failed eight-year relationship and a cross-country move, the last thing I’m looking for as a single mom is a new flame. In fact, diapers, walls marked in crayon, and daycare pickup are the only things on my to-do list.
Enter Jake Brady, your friendly neighborhood food truck owner whose dimples and delicacies won’t seem to leave well enough alone. With more popularity than the president, his wine-infused sweet treats have our nation’s capital hooked. He’s spontaneous, smug and all-American gorgeous; a dangerous combination considering he has no interest in taking on the responsibilities that rule my life.
But when we can’t seem to sample enough of each other’s … desserts, things start to get complicated. Jake is biting off more than he can chew, and when I watch him with my daughter, I can’t seem to freeze my melting heart.
Maybe it’s his waffle cone. Maybe it’s his … banana split. Either way, I think I’m in trouble with a cherry on top.

Melt is a great romantic comedy. I loved that there was no unnecessary drama in the relationship between Samantha and Jake. We get to see two people fall in love and they didn’t let their past relationships ruin the one they were in. I felt for Samantha at times with her being a single mother. It’s hard to date and have a kid because you never know if the person you are seeing wants kids or not. Lennon is a rambunctious three-year-old and I thought she was funny.
Also this book combined two of my favorite things: ice cream and alcohol. I wish there was an alcoholic ice cream truck that came through my neighborhood!

A lover of good manicures, Riesling and the beach, she enjoys chasing her puppy through the dog parks of New Jersey, or trying to make her husband binge watch the latest Netflix craze.
