Some fires never burn out...
After 10 years as America's sweetest celebrity chef, Naomi Whitehouse is enjoying life out of the spotlight, back in her hometown of Summerville, Georgia. She's opening a pastry shop with her sister, housesitting for her snowbird parents, and reconnecting with her roots. Life is good until she runs into her high school sweetheart, Jake Hansen, a sexy firefighter who gives her a reception chilly enough to freeze a forest fire. If Naomi wants her homecoming to remain all cupcakes and sugar cookies, she'll have to win Jake over. But how can she earn his forgiveness when he won't even speak to her?
When the girl who broke his heart buys a month of dates at the firefighter's Hunk-for-a-Month fundraiser auction, only honor keeps widower Jake Hansen from backing out of the commitment. He won't let the firehouse down, even if it means enduring a torturous month with Naomi Whitehouse. And Jake knows being close to Naomi again will be torture. Even after all these years, she still gets to him...not that he intends to let her know it. He'll be civil, honor his obligation, and with any luck Naomi will tire of playing small-town pastry chef and Jake will never see her again.
But as the month passes, Jake and Naomi discover some fires never burn out. Will the heat between them be enough to melt away the pain of past mistakes, or is their second chance doomed from the start?
Fans of Bella Andre, Kristan Higgins, and Susan Mallery will love the Summerville romance series, stories featuring sassy Southern women and the alpha males who love them.

An enjoyable listen!
A great start to the series
Jessie Evans is one of my favorite authors, and I love all of her books. Really, all of them. Melt With You is just as wonderful a story as the rest, and I both enjoyed reading and listening to it.
Other books in the Fire & Icing series, as well as Jessie's Always A Bridesmaid books, in that they revolve around different members of the same family, and are also set in Summerville, GA.
I have a lot of favorite scenes, but I loved the ones where Naomi and Jake work out their differences with each other.
I wanted to, but was not able to. It really is addictive, and I couldn't wait to hear what happened next.
Piper Goodeve does a fantastic job at narrating this book. She just really captures characters' personalities so well.
