Review – No Reservations by Kristen Proby

Review:

I freaking love this series and the well-pair couples this author has introduced us to and Chase and Maura are no exception.  They bring an element to the Fusion family I didn’t really anticipate but it is a refreshing and honest relationship that complements the books in this series very well.  Chase is the skirt-chasing womanizer who has been lusting after Maura for quite some time.  Of course, you don’t realize this at first but when you get to read his side of the story, I was amazed (and slightly in love).  Chase is real and honest about his wants and needs and he wants Maura desperately.  Maura…now I flat-out adored her!!!!!  She is so upfront and confidant in everything she does.  She is a woman who knows exactly what she does and doesn’t want and she is not afraid to go after what she desires most.  This, being, Chase.  These two have some pretty mind-blowing chemistry and their banter is both erotic and hilariously brazen.  Sometimes you would think they really don’t like each other but it works out to be some strangely decadent foreplay.  Seriously, I don’t know how my panties survived this book.  They both find that once, twice…hell, even numerous times between the sheets does nothing to cool their attraction towards one another.  Throw in a little bit of angst and a whole lot of loving….and some dirty talking sexy time and you have a phenomenally sinful book that can be read on your lunch hour.  Just be sure to bring a bottle of water…and a fresh pair of undies!  5 stars!

About NO RESERVATIONS:

New York Times Bestselling author Kristen Proby takes us back to her highly acclaimed Fusion series.

Chase MacKenzie is not the man for Maura Jenkins. A self-proclaimed life-long bachelor, and unapologetic about his distaste for monogamy, a woman would have to be a masochist to want to fall into Chase’s bed.

And Maura is no masochist.

Chase has one strict rule: no strings attached. Which is fine with Maura because she doesn’t even really like Chase. He’s arrogant, cocky, and let’s not forget bossy. But when he aims that crooked grin at her, she goes weak in the knees. Not that she has any intentions of falling for his charms.

Definitely not.

Well, maybe just once…

Review – The Beauty of Us by Kristen Proby

REVIEW:

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.

From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby comes a sexy, new standalone contemporary romance in her Fusion Series, THE BEAUTY OF US, releasing August 22, 2017! Order your copy today and get to know Trevor and Riley!

 

 

 

 

 

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.

Review – Blush For Me by Kristen Proby

REVIEW:

I am head-over-heels in love with this series and Blush For Me is a fine example of why this series is so amazing.  Full of strong and supportive women meeting and falling in love with wonderful, sexy, and charming men.  Kat has intrigued me from the very beginning with her take-no-prisoners attitude in regards to life so to start this book off by showing us that she is very human and has a true fear (especially when her character has always seemed so fearless) just made this book an instant favorite.  I could relate to her on so many levels in that moment!  Mac…what a completely swoon-worthy hero he turns out to be.  From taking control of Kat’s fear to seducing her with his witty banter and sexy humor, I fell in love with Mac at his very first words!  He is the perfect counterpart to Kat’s bold and vivacious nature but I seriously melted for this couple because of the peace they brought to each other from the very beginning.  What starts out as a “sexcation” turns into something neither one of them expected and it was beautiful and moving to read about.  You can expect some hilarious conversations between them as Kat is sassy and bold and Mac is alpha yet tender, but it’s the truly quiet moments between these two that sets this book apart from all the others.  I literally melted at the heat between the two of them both in the bedroom, and out of it.  Their chemistry is that explosive.  The sex scenes are intense and erotic, without being over the top.  Mac is sex-on-a-stick, but seriously, this man can boss me around anytime he wants to!!!!  There is a little bit of angst to their story, a fast moving and easy to follow plot, and even the return of previous characters.  I also really enjoyed the addition of Mac’s brother Chase, and can only hope we get his story as well.  Blush For Me was flawless, from beginning to end! I can’t get enough of this series and I highly recommend it!  5 stars!

About BLUSH FOR ME:

New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby continues to delight the senses with the latest novel in her delectable Fusion series.

As the take-charge wine bar manager of Seduction, Portland’s hottest new restaurant, Katrina Meyers is the definition of no-nonsense, and she isn’t afraid of anything. Well, almost anything: she hates to fly. When she’s forced to travel on a death trap with wings, the turbulence from hell has her reaching for any safe haven—including the incredibly handsome guy sitting next to her.

Ryan “Mac” MacKenzie hasn’t been able to get his sexy seatmate out of his head. The way she clung to him stirred something inside him he didn’t think existed: tenderness. As the owner of a successful wine touring company, Mac thinks he’s got a handle on what life can throw at him and he’s not prepared for any surprises, especially in the feelings department. And when he brings a tour into Seduction, he sees the petite spitfire he just can’t forget.

Mac is determined to discover what else they have in common besides fine wine and the inability to keep their hands off each other. But what will it take for two stubborn people to realize that what they have is so much more than a hot chemistry between the sheets and to admit to falling in love…?

Review – Close To You by Kristen Proby

Tour Titles 5

What Worked For Me:

I absolutely LOVE this series.  We are only 2 books in, and I’m already salivating for the remaining books.  Close To You is the story of Cami, our numbers girl at Seduction.  Her entire life, Cami has been in love with her best friend’s brother, Landon (see, that right there already makes me swoon).  But Landon has never shown her any interest so when he returns home from the military, his career and life all adrift, and gives Cami no notice, she decides it’s time to move on.  I go crazy when this works and it works to her benefit in a huge way because when Landon does notice and decides to court Cami, all bets are off.   I’ve been fascinated with Landon since he was introduced to us in Listen To Me and he does not disappoint!  He is dreamy and charismatic, even as he is coming to grips with the fact that his military career is over.  He also happens to be the perfect hero for our darling Cami.  I could not get enough of the chemistry and emotion between these two.  Even better, their lives are full of memories of a very great friendship that now is starting to have an added element…smoking hot sex!  But more powerful than the sex (don’t be fooled, Ms. Proby writes extremely decadent and delightful bedroom scenes), is the bond between these too.  They “get” each other in ways that defy the mind and make you witness what true soul mates are really about.  There are lots of poignant moments between Landon and Cami but there are also moments that make this series so much more charming….the times between these five amazing friends.  We have lots of laughter and hijinks between all the characters but when you throw in a conniving cat who just doesn’t understand boundaries, you are entertained and chuckling for hours.  There are some powerfully intense situations in this story that will have your heart breaking but this author is so amazing in her storytelling that even though you are devastated by events in these characters lives, you never give up hope and you are blessed with an amazing ending and yearning for the next book.  I don’t know how she does it but this series has sucked me in and taken hold and I can’t wait to read the next book in this stellar series!

Would I Recommend This Book:

Yes, to everyone who loves contemporary romance.  It’s sexy without being over-the-top and there is virtually no angst.

Final Star Rating:

5 stars

CLOSE TO YOU - cover

Tour Titles 3

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby comes the second novel in her sizzling Fusion series.

Camilla, “Cami,” LaRue was five-years-old when she first fell in love with Landon Palazzo. Everyone told her the puppy love would fade—they clearly never met Landon. When he left after graduation without a backward glance, she was heartbroken. But Cami grew up, moved on, and became part-owner of wildly popular restaurant Seduction. She has everything she could want…or so she thinks.

After spending the last twelve years as a Navy fighter pilot, Landon returns to Portland to take over the family construction business. When he catches a glimpse of little Cami LaRue, he realizes she’s not so little any more. He always had a soft spot for his little sister’s best friend, but nothing is soft now when he’s around the gorgeous restauranteur.

Landon isn’t going to pass up the chance to make the girl-next-door his. She’s never been one for romance, but he’s just the one to change her mind. Will seduction be just the name of her restaurant or will Cami let him get close enough to fulfill all her fantasies?

PROLOGUE

~Landon~

“Are you packed?” my sister, Mia, asks through the phone. Her voice is husky with sleep, which makes sense since it’s the middle of the night back home in Portland, Oregon.

“I leave tomorrow, Mia. Of course I’m not packed.” She snickers. I just finished up my last debriefing meeting, my last day as an officer in the Navy. I grip the zipper of my flight uniform and sigh. “It’s not right.”

“I know,” she says quietly. “But you’re safe and whole, and you could be dead, Landon, so I’ll take it.”

I frown, staring at myself in the mirror as I unzip my uniform for the last time. I’ll never wear it again, never pilot a plane again.

What the fuck am I supposed to do now? The Navy gave me options, but if I can’t fly, there’s no sense in it. Flying isn’t just what I do, it’s who I am.

“You’re overthinking,” Mia says.

“I’m a pilot, Mia. This is what I love. It wasn’t supposed to end like this.”

“You’re alive,” she says.

“Am I?” I murmur, then shake my head and wince at the neck pain that still nags me from time to time. Ejecting from an F- 16 will cause a crick in the neck. And a loss of an inch in height that may never return, along with an entire Naval career.

Son of a bitch.

“This has been the longest four months of our lives, Landon. We’re all anxious to see you.”

“I’ll be home in a few days,” I reply as I pull a T- shirt over my head and throw the last of my belongings in a box that the Navy will have sent to me from Italy.

I loved being in Italy for the past few years, and God knows I didn’t plan to leave it like this.

But I am. Maybe Mia’s right; at least I’m alive and I can walk and live a normal life.

I just can’t fly.

And that’s what hurts more than any injury from the crash.

“What time should I come get you from the airport?”

“No need,” I reply, regretting calling my sister and waking her up. I just didn’t know what else to do when I came in here and was faced with boxes and the end of a career I love. “I’ll get there.”

“Landon— ”

“It’s okay, really. I’ll see you in a few days.”

“Be safe,” she says. “And, Landon?”

“Yeah.”

“It’s going to be okay.”

I force a grin and a nod, though she can’t see either. “Of course it is.”

We say our good- byes and I sit on the edge of the bed, scrub my hands over my face, and take a deep breath. I hope she’s right.

5 Star Review – Listen to Me by Kristen Proby

Tour Titles 5

 

What Worked For Me:

Warning! Warning!  Before you pick up this book make sure you have plenty of drinks and snacks.  Order In pizza. Put on a diaper so you don’t have to go to the bathroom…ok that may be taking things a little far but seriously make sure everyone is settled before you start reading Listen to Me because once you start, you absolutely will NOT want to stop.  This book is purely, 100% addicting!  I loved it.  There is not one single thing I can say negative and so many amazing things, there aren’t enough words in the human language to adequately describe how much this book ROCKS!  Addison, our heroine, is a strong and independent women who runs a restaurant with her best friends.  She got some issues but this woman knows how to keep her head up despite it all.  She has a history of picking bad-boy rockers who leave her high and dry so when our hero, legendary rocker Jake Knox comes into her restaurant to provide some live entertainment, she does not make getting to know her easy.  Jake is sex on a stick personified.  He is so delicious I just want to dip him and chocolate and eat him up.  He is flabbergasted and confused about his instant attraction to Addison, but rather than fight it, he decides to go with the flow and see if he can get to know her.   The banter between these two is hilarious!  They go back and forth and it is pure entertainment.  It doesn’t take long before getting to know one another turns to friendship, which in turn becomes something neither one of them ever expected.  I loved the slow build-up between them because when they finally come together….WHEW!!!  It is mind blowing.  He is a gentleman in public but behind closed doors….he is most definitely a bad boy in a very good way.  Their chemistry is so hot it will melt your clothes right off your body!  But, despite the slow build-up and the raw passion, these two have issues that they must work through in order to get what they both now want more than anything, a future together.  Helping these two on their path to happily-ever-after are Addison’s best friends, one crazy cool spa technician, one of Jake’s bandmates, and Jake’s best friend, Christina.  All these secondary characters make this book even richer and more decadent.  They are fun to get to know and pumped me up even more for the next book in this series.  The plot was fresh and fast-paced and kept me entertained from the first word until the very last.  There is a little bit of angst to keep you on your toes and enough emotional elements to require a tissue or ten.  Trust me when I say that Listen To Me will be one of the best books you will read this entire year.  Kristen Proby is an author who knows how to enthrall her readers and her books should come with a warning label….one that reads Highly Addictive! 

What Didn’t Work For Me:

I have no negative issues.  The book was perfect from characters, to plot, to editing.

Would I Recommend This Book:

Yes….to every single reader I know

In New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby’s brand new series, five best friends open a hot new restaurant, but one of them gets much more than she bargained for when a sexy former rock star walks through the doors—and into her heart.

Seduction is quickly becoming the hottest new restaurant in Portland, and Addison Wade is proud to claim 1/5 of the credit. She’s determined to make it a success and can’t think of a better way to bring in new customers than live music. But when former rock star Jake Keller swaggers through the doors to apply for the weekend gig, she knows she’s in trouble. Addie instantly recognizes him—his posters were plastered all over her bedroom walls in high school—he’s all bad boy…exactly her type and exactly what she doesn’t need.

Jake Keller walked away from the limelight five years ago and yearns to return to what’s always driven him: the music. If he gets to work for a smart-mouthed, funny-as-hell bombshell, all the better. But talking Addie into giving him the job is far easier than persuading her that he wants more than a romp in her bed. Just when she begins to drop her walls, Jake’s past finally catches up with him.

Will Addie be torn apart once again or will Jake be able to convince her to drown out her doubts and listen to her heart?

 

“The story is fresh, the characters are hot, the chemistry between
Jake and Addison is through the roof, and the picture that
Ms. Proby paints is vivid and energetic.”

Addison

It’s quiet in here now, and the silence is too loud. He’s staring down at his drink, his eyes a deep green in the low light of the bar. A crease forms between his eyebrows in a frown, and then he shakes his head, just a tiny bit. Jake sips his drink, and I can’t help but wonder what he’s thinking.

And I’m a woman, so I ask.

Because who ever heeded the whole, don’t ask the question if you don’t want the answer warning?

“What are you thinking?” I ask softly.

He chuckles and shakes his head.

“You don’t want to know.”

“I asked.”

He swivels in the stool, facing me, and rests his hand on the arm of my own stool, leaning into me, and it takes everything in me not to back away. His eyes lower to my lips.

I lick them, and watch his eyes dilate.

This is a very bad idea.

I swallow hard as he continues to watch my mouth.

“It’s quiet in here,” he says evenly.

“I was thinking the same.”

“Are you comfortable in the quiet, Addie?”

I frown and feel my nipples pucker when he reaches up and tucks my hair behind my ear. His fingers are warm.

And when he’s this close, I can’t help but breathe him in and enjoy the scent of him.

“Why shouldn’t I be?”

“Some aren’t. Some need chaos, noise. The quiet makes them nervous.”

You make me nervous.

I lick my lips again.

“I don’t mind quiet. You?”

“I love the quiet.”

I smirk. “You’re a musician.”

“And I love music too. But the quiet is where the truth lives.”

I blink once, twice.

“Where the truth lives?” I’m whispering now.

He simply nods. “There’s no distraction. No way to deny what is. It’s honest.”

“And you claim to be honest?”

“To a fault,” he confirms. “I’d also love to hear more about this sexcation you’re scheming.”

I feel my cheeks flush and turn away, taking another sip of my wine.

“I was simply being silly with my friends, Jake. Drop it.”

He doesn’t answer. Damn the fucking quiet.
