This was such a sweet, low angst read and I really enjoyed it. This book sets the scene for what the Neighbourhood Shindig is and introduces us to other food truck operators and not just Isaiah and Joel. It already has a happy extended family feel and I’m looking forward to reading more in the series. Isaiah and Joel are lovely together and it truly is a story of shared passions and second chances. The banter between the two is easy going and fun. A perfect one sitting read!

I loved it! Joel and Isaiah have such great chemistry and all the food recipes and experimentation made me so hungry lol. It's such a heartwarming, feel-good read that I just couldn't put down!
Joel is just wonderful, such a big heart and having gone through so much, to being betrayed like that and being able to open his life and heart again was just wonderful to read. This is a book of healing, happiness, and love. I couldn't stop smiling when I finished reading and I look forward to many more re-reads and all the other books in the series. I can't wait to see the other members of Neighhood Shindig find their happily ever after's too!
Such a great read, with the perfect but truthful happy ending. I loved it!!

Melting For You is the first in what looks like a funny series by Ms Arthur. Neighborhood Shindig is the mastermind of Isaiah Morrel's father. Isaiah has return to Reynolds, temporarily, to help his ailing father recover from an illness. Joel Fisher has return to Reynolds after being away from his business for almost a year, to discover that his business partner/lover has cleaned him out. Joel is without a home and a business. What starts as a kind gesture when Mr Morrel offers Joel a room in his home, turns into so much more. The banter and chemistry between Joel and Isaiah was great to read. Melting For You was a fun, easy read and I can't wait for more in this series.
I have been so looking forward to a new story by this author and this one doesn’t disappoint. This is a great start to a new series. Well written and you will love Isaiah and Joshua. The character development is on point, you know where each man is coming from in regards to their pasts and they way that has shaped them. I really enjoyed the food truck storyline as it’s definitely something new and different. Can’t wait for more in the series.

I really liked the chemistry between the MC’s and the plot was engaging. Overall, it’s a well written book. On the downside though, everything felt a little rushed. I wanted to spend more time with these characters and I ended up feeling a little short changed. Nevertheless, I will continue with this series.
This is an amazing story about Joel whose life has fallen apart and Issiah who has returned to help his father who suffered a heart attack. The food truck concept was a great story line and I loved the way the A.M. Arthur pulled it all together and I am so looking forward to reading more in this series. I highly recommend this book.
This is a great concept, settings and character build up for a first book. Loved Joel and Isaiah connection and relationship from the start and the communication between them as to the food truck and future.
