    I voluntarily read and reviewed an copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.Thanks to the author for providing a copy of this book via NetgalleyIts not you, its me!!!And i’m really sorry!!I see I’m in minority here. I was struggling with this book for more than 2 days, and more than 3 days for writing this review. I have to say, i don’t like to write bad/negative reviews. But this book just didnt work out for me.I’m a huge ...

    ARC received for reviewI loved the first book in this series which has no overlap whatsoever with this one. I didn't see the chemistry between them. Kimber really liked the way he looks and couldn't stop talking about it, A LOT. He was "nasty" to her because he didn't want he to figure out he loved her cause it was too soon. The ending was good, but I think it would have been better if (view spoiler)[ he got to do the big speech at the show inste...

    Huh. Well, that happened."You know what they say. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.""They also say you don't have to be a cactus expert to know a prick when you see one."Despite my serious love for this series (fours & fives people! from me, the stingy witch with a b), ACHE FOR YOU just felt like a straight up departure from the realm of great -- nay, fantastic -- romances that came before it. Both BURN FOR YOU and MELT FOR YOU hav...

    I received an advanced copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.To say it hasn't been Kimber's week would be putting it lightly. First, her high-profile fiance leaves her at the altar, making her the laughing stock of the fashion world. Then she receives news that her father has suffered a heart attack, and she must travel to Italy to see him, only to lose her seat on the airplane. Soon after she finally arrives in Italy,...

    I’m a huge fan of enemies to lovers and this one was definitely that. Add in a bit of a Cinderella twist, a wild cast of characters and a hero that knows just how to push the heroine’s buttons and you’ve got yourself one fantastically fun read.I enjoyed everything about the way this couple meet and continue to meet, how they completely clashed and the resulting steam of chemistry that smolders between them during each confrontation. Matteo ...

    5 Fairytale⭐When Cinderella meets Prince Charming…😍 I literally feel like I’m on top of the world, after receiving this ARC. It was my most wanted book to read of the year and I got lucky to receive it months before the release day. Sue me for gloating. 😋Read the blurb, to find out that it’s a modern fairytale of a young woman who gets left at the altar, then her father dies and her business goes up in flames. Literally. On top of t...

    To say that Kimber DiSanto has had a shitty week is an understatement. She got dumped at the altar and consequently was made a laughingstock in the tabloids. Next her father passed away and she found out that she has a new stepmother whose gaze is frostier than the North Pole as well as two canine stepsisters who have free reign over her father's house. Furthermore, her boutique store in San Francisco has burnt down to a cinder, which is just as ...
  • Dísir
    Down-on-her-luck Kimber—dumped by a wealthy fiancé at the altar—makes it to Italy, though not without more drama following her around, mostly in the form of another rich Italian tycoon. Only to realise that her dying father has remarried a calculative barracuda, left her with 2 stepsisters, and an evil stepmother. If this rings familiar, that’s because ‘Ache for You’ is a Cinderella tale of sorts from riches to rags and riches again, o...

    Despite my love for the second book in this series, Melt for You, and my eagerness to read this one, I can't recommend it. I didn't find the premise or the principal characters believable and much of the plot seems to repeat itself over and over and over and over and over and over and over again. The heroine seems to have a genuine inability to distinguish friend from foe - and has no trouble abusing anyone she fails to understand or like. The he...
  • Lacey (Booklovers For Life)
    This is a hilarious, sexy, enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy that had me giggling so much. It's a modern retelling of Cinderella, set in the gorgeous country of Italy, and of course, has a hunky Italian hero who dirty talks in Italian. Kimber and Matteo are amazing together – they do not get along yet the banter is witty and the chemistry is on fire. The story is a little over-the-top, a lot hilarious, and I had so much fun reading it.Thanks ...

    anyways i bothered finishing it and all i can say is that despite a few kekeke's here & there, it was garbage so. my disappointment knows no bounds right now. im seeing red]:(_________________________dnf. huh i played myself tonight huh
  • nick
    I absolutely loved the first two books in the Slow Burn series and had no idea that there would be a new book out. When I found out that Ache For You was a Cinderella retelling, I was even more pumped. I don't think I have ever read a Cinderella romance retelling so I was looking forward to Ache For You. It makes me sad to say this but unfortunately, this book didn't entirely work for me. Kimber, the heroine, is having a bit of a rough time. She ...

    "I bet he could make me orgasm just by whispering the phone book in my ear." I've been a J.T. Geissinger fan for years. I never know what voices are pitching ideas into her head, but I always enjoy them once I'm introduced. Matteo & Kimber must have kept her up many nights with their bickering. When I was first exposed to their heated verbal barbs I knew that when they finally gave in to their attraction it was going to be epic. So much fire and ...

    I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.4.5 starsWell, this was a pleasant surprise! I had read a lot of negative reviews, so I wasn’t expecting to love it, but I enjoyed almost every second of it! Ache For You was a funny and sexy love story. It was also surprisingly angsty, but not overwhelmingly. This was not 100% a slow burn because the characters kiss early on, but the chemistry was still sizzling. I will address ...

    This is first person POV, Alternating Kimber/MatteoThe beginning of the book- no secret, Kimber is left at the altar on her wedding day. Kimber goes to Italy (near Florence) to be will her very ill father. Kimber and Matteo's "meet cute" is fun. Kimber is on the high side of feisty. Matteo is so rrrroar. and very sexy charming. Kimber doesn't fall for his flirting. She doesn't want to. but inside, she's hot for him. He's hot for her. Is Matteo ju...

    Okay, uncle. I'm DNFing this one at 51%, but I'm counting it as read because, you know... majority. I can't tell you how disappointed I am in this book. I loved the first two in the series and this one is a major flop. The characters are annoying, their dialogue is unrealistic and felt very over the top. It just felt like things that were said and done weren't actually things people would say or do in real life. I didn't connect with either of th...
  • Tracey
    So I loved Burn for You (Slow Burn #1) and I gushed all over the place after reading Melt for You (Slow Burn #2), so what can I say to adequately express how much I absolutely adored Ache for You, Book #3!!! This author has nailed the rom-com genre -- I never laugh so much as when I read her books. Kimber and Matteo are certainly slow burn material, but what I loved even more was their snarky banter that had me giggling throughout the entire book...

    Despite my big-time love for the second book in this series, Melt for You, and my eagerness to read this one, I can't recommend it. I didn't find the premise plausible or the principal characters well characterized and/or believable (much less likeable), and the plot seems to recycle itself over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over.... Kimber DeSanto, a little known fashion designer and our heroine, is ...
  • Tracy is a Bookcraver
    A J. T. Geissinger book makes me wish that I could time travel or erase my memory so I could experience it for the first time again. She writes the best characters. I want to know them in real life. Poor Kimber has her feet knocked out from under her over and over. While she does have her breakdowns, they are all laced with humor. Unfortunately for him, Matteo is one of the things that knocks her off balance. He is in for the fight of his life th...

    I’m loving this series so much, and I think that Ache for You might possibly be my favourite so far. I loved our heroine, Kimber DiSanto, a passionate dress designer, jilted at the alter during her extremely public high society wedding. She’s feisty, with a wonderful temper, and a great right hook. Her luck doesn’t get any better when she has to urgently fly over to Florence to be at her ailing father’s hospital bed. When Matteo Moretti a...
  • Heather andrews
    Well isn't Matteo a charming man, "...I’ll look at you however I want.” With a dark chuckle, he spins on his heel and is gone." Matteo is a very passionate man, but more so when his woman is hurting, “I could kill him just for this,” Matteo mutters, taking a corner too fast. “Just for making you cry.” He growls something in Italian. It sounds super murdery and makes me feel a little better." I loved this book, Matteo was persistent an...
  • A Klue
    Maybe I enjoyed the premise of this romantic tale mostly because I was really in the mood for a beautiful, sassy mouth heroine, who has finally had enough of gorgeous men who think they can they con and manipulate women to get whatever they want. Kimber may have been jilted at the altar with cameras catching every humiliating second of her celebrity style almost wedding, but even that wasn’t enough to keep her down for long. No, she came out sw...

    As far as bad luck goes, Kimber is the queen. Left at the altar, her father in Italy ill and dying, her flight was overbooked and now she has no way to get to him before he dies! She was willing to do anything to get on that flight. And she did. She was willing to exchange her sketchbook with all the sketches for her Spring collection for a ticket on that flight. The mysterious Italian that had propositioned her earlier while she waited was now h...
  • Beyond The Covers Blog
    LOVED this book.  Right from the very beginning this story was so entertaining and has a little bit of a Cinderella theme to it.  Just days after getting dumped at the altar, Kimber receives an emergency message from Italy that her father is gravely ill.  While at the airport she meets the most beautiful Italian man she's ever seen, but because she was just dumped she has the attitude that men are scum.  When Mr. McGorgeous asks for her numbe...
  • MiekeReads
    I pretty much loved Burn for You and Melt for You so I was expecting a lot coming into Melt for You. While I didn’t necessarily get the story I was expecting, I enjoyed it tremendously anyway.On the surface this book is nothing new. A jilted bride and a rich Euro Hunk meet and sparks fly. I still enjoyed the ride fully. I liked both Matteo and Kimber and thought that they were both hilarious, misguided and communication challenged. This book wa...
  • Em__Jay
    ACHE FOR YOU by J.T. Geissinger is the story of a woman whose life is unravelling in all manner of ways. Kimber DiSanto needs to keep her wits about her and stop her life from going down the gurgler. What she does not need is exploding ovaries and horny thoughts when she crosses paths with the drool-worthy Matteo Moretti. This was a straightforward read for me. It was funny and heartfelt for the majority of the book. Kimber and Matteo’s romance...
