Melt for Us is the second novella in Molly Doyle’s Holiday Masked Men series. This one is set during Christmas, so it’s a Holiday Themed Dark Erotic Romance with Reverse Harem. If you are not familiar with Reverse Harem, it is when the female MC has multiple love interests and doesn’t choose from them. If this is not your thing, I wouldn’t recommend reading the Holiday Masked Men series. This book does have several triggers, so make sure to check out the triggers listed in the book synopsis by the author.
Storyline/My Thoughts: The female MC, Quinn, has been swept away to a cabin with her masked men (unmasked during most of the novella) for a getaway during Christmas. It’s during a blizzard, too. There is plenty of time for Quinn to get to know the men who swept into her life during Halloween. Things come to light in this short novella on what happened to Quinn in the past, and there is one scene that may bother readers where she has her masked men reenact what happened to her.
Again, this book didn’t have much plot but lots of spice. Christmas lights are involved, knifeplay consisting of carving, and a small MM scene between two men in Quinn’s life. There are additional spicy scenes, but those are the ones that stood out the most. Yes, there is breath play/choking, too, so if you are bothered by it, this book may not be for you.
I got more detailed information on the masked men individually, names, and each has a different personality. Quinn definitely has her hands full with each of the men.
I give this novella three stars. I wish I could give it more, but it was a-okay read for me. I’m hoping there is a full-length novel so that I can read more about all the characters, not just the female MC. I need to know why the men are dark and twisted in different ways. They are very protective of Quinn, though.
Standalone or Part of Series: It’s part of the Holiday Masked Men series, but each can read as a standalone.
