Review – The Beauty of Us by Kristen Proby


I adored this book!  This is a wonderful series by Ms. Proby and I’m quite addicted to it.  However, this book was probably one of my favorites of the series!  Riley is a brilliant co-owner of Seduction, a restaurant that is now so popular they are doing a TV piece on it.  She is quite smart and strong but not very lucky at love.  So she is pretty floored with how wonderful Trevor seems to be.  Trevor is the perfect gentleman.  And to prove to Riley that not all men are douchbags, he sets out to win her.  I have to tell you, it’s pretty awesome.  He’s like a best friend and sex buddy all rolled into one gloriously hot package.  Riley is able to be herself with him and it’s very freeing for her.  But something neither of them expected to do was fall in love….because there is not way that could work with them living in different places.  I loved the dynamics of their relationship, how he proved to her over and over that he could be counted on.  But what I enjoyed even more was how unbelievably hot their chemistry was and that they both thought this would just be something temporary.  They were fooling themselves and it was great to watch them figure it all out.  I loved catching up with past characters and the storyline was fast paced and easy to follow along with.  While this book is part of a series, it absolutely can stand alone…but why would you not want to read the other books?!?!  There isn’t a lot of angst, which is great, just simply breathtaking storytelling with lots of emotions and a wonderful happily ever after.  I can’t wait for Mia’s story!  This book sets us up perfectly for it!  5 stars.

New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby delivers another sizzling novel in her delectable and sexy Fusion series.

Riley Gibson is over the moon at the prospect of having her restaurant, Seduction, on the Best Bites TV network. This could be the big break she’s been waiting for. But the idea of having an in-house show on a regular basis is a whole other matter. Their lives would be turned upside down, and convincing Mia, her best friend and head chef of Seduction, that having cameras in her kitchen every day is a good idea is daunting. Still, Riley knows it’s an opportunity she can’t afford to pass on. And when she meets Trevor Cooper, the show’s executive producer, she’s stunned by their intense chemistry.

Trevor’s sole intention is to persuade Riley to allow Best Bites TV to do a show on her restaurant. But when he walks into Riley’s office, he stops dead in his tracks. The professional, aloof woman on the phone is incredibly beautiful and funny. But can he convince her that he’s interested in Riley for himself? Or is he using the undeniable pull between them to persuade her to agree to his offer?

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.


During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.


Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.


Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.
