About this ebook

Deacon Hunter is domineering. Condescending. Infuriating.

And yet I can’t seem to keep my panties on for five minutes when we’re alone together.

He keeps melting them right off. With that sexy voice, those confident hands, the way he brings my body wildly to life, he’s proved my libido hasn’t gone into permanent, post-divorce hibernation after all.

Surely there’s no harm in being enemies with benefits… Right?


When Violet Boden asks me to take her Divorce Virginity, the only thing I can think is—come again?

No, seriously, come again.

And again and again, until both of us are so satisfied we can’t remember the people who did us wrong.

Best if we keep conversation to a minimum, though, considering I drive her crazy. She drives me crazy sometimes, too. But she’s also sweet, loyal, fearless, and so much fun she’s making it damn hard not to fall for her.

But how to convince a woman who’s put me in the emotional no-fly zone that I deserve a place in her heart? As well as in her panties…

I was completely consumed with Deacon and Violet’s story from prologue to epilogue. Though they start out as enemies, neither Deacon nor Violet can deny or ignore the electrical currents that soar through their souls whenever they are near one another. The explosion of fiery passion between them literally leaps from the pages turn after turn. And their witty banter is so entertaining and fun to read, I didn’t want to put my kindle down. I also loved that Deacon and Violet are older (both are in their 40s with grown children) and how they find a deep and true love together that will last forever. The novel is also replete with lots of secondary characters which rounded out this story beautifully, and it also included a few surprises I wasn’t expecting. In true Lili Valente fashion, The Panty Melter is a hot and steamy romance with touching and emotional moments as well, and a definite must read. Another fantastic addition to her Hunter Brothers series which, as always, leaves me wanting more.

I melted for this rom-com! I had no idea this was a series of books with different brothers, but you do not need to read them to understand this book. I did not read the earlier books & understood everything. I enjoyed this rom-com! I laughed out loud, melted (or swooned) at the romantic gesture then smiled at the happy ending. I loved that this book was two adults in their early forties, Deacon & Violet, who knew who they were but were not afraid to find love again after getting divorced & raising kids. At first they were hesitant for reasons you will have to read, but their chemistry was too strong. Once they got to spend time together & know each other then the real love was found. They found each other even though they thought their time had passed, & I loved that message. If you want a rom-com about adults, then this book is for you!

Happy reader here. We get another Hunter brother to devour and drool over. This is Deacon Hunter's turn at HEA but will he find it with the gorgeous Violet Boden? Violet works for his brother Tristan and he has seen her once or twice but when they run into each other at a party, masquerade party, the sparks fly. That is until Violet realizes her masked panty melter is Deacon. She slams on the brakes for this oh so delicious moment to only regret it later. This series has given me so many swoon moments and this one follows suit. This story gives us an older couple. Deacon is the oldest of the Hunter men so he is full grown and all alpha man. Violet has raised her daughters and dealt with her husband leaving for a younger woman and now it's time for her to take her life by the reins and head for her future. She is just surprised what her future holds. Loved the story of "adults" for a change. Nice to read about a couple in their 40's instead of 20's. There are lots of twists and turns to their story and surprises for sure. I loved Violet and her independence and love for animals. I loved Deacon and his strong will but also sweet soft side. My only real drawback, which isn't bad, is I wish we would have gotten to catch up with the rest of the family too. They are all such great characters it would have been nice to reunite with all the Hunter men and their families. I received an early copy to read and review and give my honest opinion. I loved it and recommend it.

About the author

 Author of over forty novels, USA Today Bestseller Lili Valente writes everything from steamy suspense to laugh-out-loud romantic comedies. A die-hard romantic and optimist at heart, she can’t resist a story where love wins big. Because love should always win.


When she’s not writing, Lili enjoys adventuring with her two sons, climbing on rocks, swimming too far from shore, and asking “why” an incorrigible number of times per day. A former yoga teacher, actor, and dancer, she is also very bendy and good at pretending innocence when caught investigating off-limits places.


You can currently find Lili in the mid-South, valiantly trying to resist the lure of all the places left to explore.


Lili also writes super naughty books as L. Valente.
