Melting Into You by Cassandra Carr ~ (Blog Tour + ARC Review)

Melting Into You by Cassandra Carr ~ (Blog Tour + ARC Review)

Melting Into You
by Cassandra Carr
Genre: MM Romance

Seth Mason's life as a macaroni and cheese food truck owner in Austin, Texas, is pretty good, except for one thing: he'd like to find a man to share that life with. As part of an organization Seth founded, he donates leftovers to the local homeless shelter, and meets Ben, a new employee. He's a preppy guy, and very much not Seth's usual type, but the attraction is strong and not going away.

Ben's just moved to Austin from Connecticut to take a job as a case manager at the Austin City Mission, the first time he's left home and family. But only a short time after he starts work, he meets a man who, though he looks like an extra in a surfing movie, intrigues him. He's hardly seen what life in Austin has to offer, and yet finds he wants to discover that with Seth's help.

The passion burns hot between them--hotter even than Austin in the dog days of summer, and neither man can deny it. As they grow closer, both must decide if they have the necessary ingredients for lasting love, or if the relationship will go up in smoke.

Tracy's Review:

3.5 Stars

Well, I have been looking forward to reading this book for a couple of months now, and I am so sorry to say, it was a disappointment :( I wanted to love this book, but I just couldn't.

Seth is a laid back surfer type and a Chef, and Ben is an uptight preppy, who is one of the managers of a homeless shelter. They meet when Seth delivers his leftover food from his food truck to the shelter.

The plot was good but the execution of the plot was not. There was a ton of dialogue which I usually love in books, but unfortunately it all felt unnatural and didn't flow, maybe even a bit cheesy (small pun intended). These aren't things people say to one another. Seth's character was WAY too pushy. The books needed some angst, it was just kind of BLAH..

There was no heat between the characters. No real chemistry either. They did a lot of talking about sex, but if the ever actually had it, we the readers weren't privy to it.

There were unresolved issues, and a bunch of things left open. It ended quite abruptly, I was shocked to turn the page and see the end. This just wasn't a well written book. It needs to be cleaned up and the dialogue needs to be more natural and flow better.

The one thing this book did do is make me want Macaroni and Cheese! I am giving this 3.5 stars, I loved the cover, the MC's were likeable, the plot/storyline was good, and the food sounded awesome!!
