Reviews Ache for You (Slow Burn, #3)

  • Carol [Goodreads Addict]
    Ache For You is book three in the Slow Burn Series by J.T. Geissinger. I read and fell in love with the first two books in this series. Each book is so different. This one is an enemies to lovers story and I could not put it down. I experienced just about every emotion possible within these pages. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.Kimber DiSanto is a seamstress. She has a little dress shop and is about to marry the man of her dreams. The ma...

    This is going on my top ten reads for 2018, for sureReading this book felt like getting a massive dose of chocolate....right in the veins, and I finished it with the widest smile on my face (and possibly a sugar induced coma), but nothing -nothing, I tell you- can take away the joy and laughs that this book bestowed on me. JTG, you’re my favorite person (well, one of) and I love much. Sniff.
  • My Pink Fairytales
    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 o...

    I'm totally, madly, irrevocably inlove with this book!!!! You know a book is unbelievably good when you can't put it down and someone interrupts you and you have to put it down to deal with them but you silently plotting ways to kill them and not silently throwing a shoe at them..... Well that is how I felt! This book gave me all the feels. Kimber (Heroine) and Matteo (Hero) as so adorable together. Their banter and sarcasm between the two were h...
  • Lacey (laceybooklovers)
    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 ...
  • Carvanz
    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 ...
  • Diana
    Oh boy, I know I am in the minority here, but I really struggled with this one. I could not stand the h, Kimber, at all. The back and forth banter drove me crazy. Then again, I must admit I usually do not read enemies to lovers that often, and this was definitely enemies to lovers OTT. I did love the H, Matteo, and he was probably the only reason I did not dnf this one. If you like eneimies to lovers, this is perfect for you!
  • Anna
    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 ...
  • Jennifer
    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...
  • Emma
    I love this author, actually she was my favorite CR author. But she is losing what makes her amazing, a book at a time. Even with my friend's negative reviews I was hopeful. Crazy female MCs would never put me off, if the crazy is balanced with logic. Yes, crazy can be logical, believe me I know. Sadly, it wasn't the case here. The characters were over the top, breathing walking contradictions. They thought or said something then did or said the ...
  • Hollis
    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...
  • Em Wittmann
    I can’t get GR to reconcile my 2 reviews for this book, so here’s a 2nd review that says the same as the original.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...
  • Malene
    **4.5 stars**Ache For You was so damn good! Enemies to lovers and slow burn romance done to perfection. I had so much fun with Kimber and Matteo. Their chemistry and tension was on fire. Wowza. I couldn’t get enough of them. Their bantering only got me wired more up. I looked forward to them sharing a scene together cause I just knew it would be amazing. Their first meeting only proved that what was in store for me could only be awesome and fil...
  • 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...
  • Mg ♥ The Bookishmedialite
    3.5 “Moshi moshi.” stars! Okaaaaay! So, I enjoyed this one but didn’t love it as fiercely as I loved the first two books, and that's SAD. Anyway, full review to follow!
  • Mindy Lou's Book Review
    I thought this was a silly but fun romantic comedy that really played up the whole Cinderella theme. So many crazy things happened to Kimber that you can't help but think she is cursed. You can't take it too seriously. Just sit back and enjoy the comedy of her life after her not so Prince Charming dumps her at the alter, and the domino effect that happens from there. As a hero, Matteo wasn't exactly Prince Charming either. He's drawn to Kimber fr...
  • Snow
    I have been waiting for this book ever since I have read the first book in the Slow burn series, and of course, ever since i have started to read all the previously written books by JT Geissinger...So, I've literally swallowed this book...simply cause, JT Geissinger writes the most witty, the most heart-felt, steamy hawt and absolutely smart/cynical banter/bickering of the "enemies to lovers" trope in romance genre... I shall say no'...
  • Denisa
    So cute!This book was so sweet and cute and hard to put down!Ok, so most of you know this author and know that she writes pretty great books. Well, this time wasn't an exception. Her writing style was amazing, it was that kind of book that's impossible to put down or to take a break from.The story itself was pretty unique (hard to find in romance books these days) but what made it awesome was the two characters. Their chemistry was off the charts...
  • Nicki K.
    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,...
  • Julia
    2.5 rounded up to 3 stars- mainly for the hero and the chemistry. This was just a mess. I really hated the heroine in the beginning, liked her somewhat in the middle, then lost all faith in her character by the end. This was just.... *heavy sigh*... another book in the long line of 2018 "what on earth did I just read" novels this year. Everything from the characters to the plot/situational drama was just so out there. The heroine was written as i...
  • Bookphenomena (Micky)
    4.5 starsThis was a read of pure escapism for me. ACHE FOR YOU came into my life just at a great moment and sucked me into a great story with fabulous chemistry and all the banter. I have loved the previous two books in this series and this book did not let me down. Please never finish with this series, JT Geissenger.ACHE FOR YOU starts with a jilting at the alter, of mammoth proportions and if you think the heroine Kimber’s luck is down then, ...
  • Carol
    3 stars. I had such high expectations for this book based on the other two in this series. Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad !!!!! (to quote Meatloaf)I didn't hate it but I didn't really love it either. Storyline and characters were both a bit of a let down for me. The story was simply too unbelievable and a lot of the scenes just felt very repetitive (because they were). At one point I really thought that I would scream out loud if she mentioned her ut...
  • Stacie
    3 "Loosely Cinderella" Stars!Well, I am certainly in the minority here, but this one didn't work as well for me as the first two did. Mainly because the two main characters got on my nerves. She was overly dramatic and he was like a little boy that kept pulling on her ponytail...There were a lot of funny moments and some very good quotes. Plus, if you decide to listen to the audiobook, the male narrator's voice is just delightful. Overall, not ba...
  • Jennifer
    Edited to fix a safety detail. :)I finished this in one sitting, so it obviously wasn’t hard to read, but I didn’t enjoy it all that much. I don't think it's fair just to state that I didn't like it without giving some spoilerly specifics, so please don't click on the spoiler tag if you want to read this book. If you like this author, and your go-to reads are safe chick lit stories, then this one is right up your alley.Major spoilers ahead:.....

    🌟🌟🌟 1/2 Plot: Kimber is left at the alter and then gets news her father is very sick. He lives in Italy, so off she goes. At the airport she meets a gorgeous hunk of man and an attraction is born. He pursues her endlessly and she has no trust in the male population or even her own judgment. That’s about it. Hero: The hero came off as overbearing. He was instantly attracted to the h and gave off a player vibe. Even so, I liked him, and ...
  • Princess under cover
    DNF @30%NOT THIS AUTHOR TOO!! Knew I shouldn't have binged... at 30%, this h is just too over the top obnoxious! YUCK.
  • Duchess Nicole
    Sometimes soulful and sad, at other times chuckle-inducing, this was another solid sexy, original romance from Geissinger. Our hero Matteo has Kimber in his sights, and he's relentless. I love a hero with his laser beam tracking the heroine. There's something sexy about a romance in which the man knows what he wants. I wanted a little more from Kimber and Matteo's mom...that relationship could have had a lot more going on, but in all, a solid fou...
  • Tasha Mahoney
    How can I describe this book? Two words. Dirty Cinderella. Seriously this is a more modern, sexy, adult take on the classic rags to riches trope, complete with stepmother and a fabulous twist.After being jilted at the alter by petrified prince, our broken hearted heroine hardens her armour against male advances. Of course, another prince (or king of couture) swoops in to sweep our lady off her feet and gets a knock back for his efforts. Not to be...
