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

Blush for me?

Why yes I will blush for you. At least I know that’s what I would say to Mac if he was to do even a few of the things that he did with Kat. That man is all alpha male but with that sweet romantic side that makes him swoon worthy. Sure he’s got mommy and daddy issues that make things complicated in his relationship with Kat.

Kat has all the confidence that I would have liked to have. She goes after what she wants with Mac and doesn’t let anyone (or anything) try and stop her.y favorite thing about her is that she talks to herself to talk through problems and I always do that. Nice to see I’m not the only one with that habit.

The romance will certainly make you want to blush because it’s hot and heated quickly that it makes you want to fan yourself after you get done those scenes. So be warned you may not want to read the story in public if you blush easily.

I love this story the best so far in this series because I feel like I can relate to not only Kat but Mac. For me, the stories I can relate to the most are the ones that get me to dive deeper into the story and make me want more for the characters. I absolutely loved these characters and can’t wait to see where Proby takes us next.

Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/33831869-the-play-mate?ac=1&from_search=true

His best friend’s little sister is all grown up … and ready to play in a whole new way.

Smith Hamilton has it all—he’s smart, good-looking and loaded. But he remembers a time when he had nothing and no one, so he’s not about to mess up, especially with his best friend’s little sister. That means keeping Evie at arm’s length … even though the once pesky little girl is now a buxom bombshell. A sexy blonde who pushes his self-control to the limit the night she crawls into bed with him.

Evie Reed knows she’s blessed—with an exclusive education, a family who loves her, and a new job managing social media for her family’s lingerie company. But she wants more, like a reason to wear the sexy lingerie herself. She has just the man in mind to help with that. She’s crushed on Smith forever. Surely tricking her way into his bed will force him to see her in a new, adult way.

Except that when Evie’s plan leads to disaster, she and Smith must decide—ignore the attraction sizzling between them, or become play mates and risk it all.

#3 – Stripped Bare by Heidi McLaughlin

Out: 3/28

Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/31358845-stripped-bare

They don’t call it the Strip for nothing. . . .

In this sinfully sexy Las Vegas romance from bestselling author Heidi McLaughlin, a man who has it all reunites with a woman who takes it all off.

Living in Sin City, Finn McCormick is no stranger to one-night stands, but the last person he expects to find losing big on the casino floor is a former high school fling. Even though Macey Webster’s clearly down on her luck, she’s still a knockout, and she’s dressed like a stripper—because she is one. Drunk off an unfamiliar cocktail of lust, pity, and compassion, Finn offers to pay Macey’s debts if she cuddles up to him around town . . . and does whatever he wants between the sheets.

Macey came to Vegas for one reason only: money. She’s got a young daughter to support, and the tips really are bigger in Vegas. But when she blows her earnings on blackjack, her guardian angel is the rich boy who once stole her heart and never called her back. Although Macey would love to turn the tables on Finn, she can’t afford to refuse his proposition—and soon she’s enjoying herself much more than she cares to admit. Macey’s used to baring her flesh, but baring her soul will take far more courage.

#2 – An Act of Courage by KC Lynn

Out: March TBD

She’s the light from his past.

He’s the one her heart has always longed for.

Trained by the best, Christopher Walker has fought hard for his country and even harder to forget the only girl he’s ever loved. He spent countless nights submerged in death and destruction only to find himself clinging to the memories of her when the darkness crept in.

When her life is threatened, Christopher will stop at nothing to protect her. Even if it means having to confront his past.

Alissa Malone never thought she would find herself face-to-face again with the only boy she’s ever loved. But she soon realizes Christopher is not the same man he once was.

His touch is still electrifying—his voice still earth shattering. But there’s a darkness about him that wasn’t there before. A pain he harbors so deep that she can feel it all the way to her soul.

One fateful moment destroyed his very existence, and only one person will be able to make him realize that what he considers an act of dishonor was truly an act of courage.

#1 – The Struggle by Jennifer Armentrout

A bloody path has been chosen…

The war against the Titans continues, and they remain determined to wreak havoc on the world, but Seth has become something all gods fear. Now the most dangerous, most absolute power no longer resides in those who have been freed from their tombs.

The Great War fought by the few is coming…

All may doubt and fear what Seth has become. All except the one woman who might be his final chance at redemption. Josie will do anything to prove that Seth is on their side, but fate has a nasty way of changing lives, of changing people.

In the end, the sun will fall…

The only way they can save the future and save themselves is by facing the unknown together. It will take more than trust and faith. It will take love and the kind of strength not easily broken. No matter what, their lives will never be the same.

For what the gods have feared has come to pass. The end of the old is here and the beginning of the new has been ushered in…

‘Close to You’ by Kristen Proby release day blitz

close to you

Blurb

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?

Review

We join back to the Fusion world that follows a group of woman as they open up a restaurant. In this book, we follow Cami as she gets a second chance with her high school love, Landon. Problem is, he is back because he got discharged from the Navy and has to adjust to life back in Portland.

I had such high hopes for this book. There were times that I got what I wanted, and times that I didn’t. The relationship between Cami and Landon is by far the best part. They are that ridiculousy cute couple that you want to hate but can’t because they are just that cute. Landon is that prince charming that we all hope to find one day (if we haven’t already). Landon is swoon worthy times ten that he makes Jake from the first book look as if he doesn’t even try.

I do wish that there was more ‘story’ to this story. Once Landon and Cami start dating, that’s all we get to see. There really isn’t much turmoil between the couple, that is until the very end. But that was over almost as quickly as it began. There was a lot of potential for Landon and we didn’t get to see. I would have thought there would be more with Landon especially considering the fact that he has a ‘wondering heart’.

The intimate scenes between Cami and Landon are as scorching as ever. If you have read Kristen Proby books in the past then you know that she writes some of the best love scenes. There are plenty of them in this book and considering it’s a love from the past, it makes sense that they would have some explosive scenes together.

The story sets up the next book in the series nicely and it’s going to be a fun ride as we see Kat find her true love.

Rating: C+

Excerpt

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.

Book of the Week – ‘Listen to Me’ by Kristen Proby

listen to me

 

In the first book of a new series by Kristen Proby as a musician falls in love with a restaurant owner. It’s going to be explosive and passionate, obviously. It involves a rock star who will likely come with enough baggage to keep the owner busy. The question will be if he can open up enough to let her help him or if he will continue to hide behind his guitar.

This is the first book of a new series and it’s shaping up to be just as steamy and beautiful as the With Me in Seattle series. That series had a book for everybody and if it’s anything like this book, it might just be the same. Romance novels is all about that passion and finding something that you can believe in. This story should offer that good feeling and get you excited for the rest of the books to come out.

About LISTEN TO ME:

 

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?

Review

It would be safe to say that Addison has a time. Musicians. You hear about her past with musicians and how they are moody and how they can’t stay loyal. She has experienced that first hand. That is where her insecurities stem for. She thinks that every musician can’t be loyal and that makes it harder for Jake to prove that he’s not that stereotypical musician. Jake does follow one stereotype. He is moody. He comes from a past that has guilt-ridden him from thinking that he deserves happiness but Addison gets him to see that maybe, just maybe it’s ok to be happy.

I really enjoyed the back and forth between Addison and Jake. The books I love the most are the ones where you laugh around with them and that you don’t realize that you are reading a story, but are engulfed into the world. Proby has you engaged with the characters and their well-being wanting everything to work out for them in the end. The world reminds me of something like a TV show where it may focus on one couple, but you don’t want to skip over the parts that the couple is not in. You enjoy reading that fluff stuff because it’s fun and entertaining and you like those characters just as much.

Addison’s friends are the best! I love that she had a group of girl friends who support her and aren’t catty like they can be in other romance novels. She has her friends help her with the struggles of her love life while they all deal with their own problems. Since it’s a series, it’s pretty clear that these ladies will likely be the stars of the other books and we get to see glimpses of what those books will be like.

I do wish that there was some more shall we say meat to the climax of the story. There is a point where they break up (as it happens with romance novels) but it felt a little forced. Like it was meant to be there because that’s what is expected. I had hope that with their background that it would be more explosive. The reunion though did make up for the break up.

The series off to a great start with Addison and Jake. The next book is going to involve Landon and Cami (Addison’s best friend) and their love story is going to be fun to read, with the introduction that we got from this book. Stay tuned and get ready.
