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?
4 Star Review by Ashley
While I'm no stranger to Kristen Proby's work, the Fusion series is still relatively new to me, this being the second book I've read from it. I was swept away in the sweet, comical and light heartedness of The Beauty of Us.
Riley was a bit of a silent assassin. Quiet, sticking to the background, not so much the in your face presence of Seduction, but for sure the glue that held it together. She's also a hopeless romantic who happens to be sick of the game. She wants something more. She wants love. Enter Trevor Cooper (and sigh). This guy's first run-in with Riley and the rest of the crew wasn't ideal but it was comical. To say Riley wasn't at her best would be a wild understatement.
While there was no denying the attraction, the kicker was, Trevor is at Riley's place of work for his job. He's not one to mix business with pleasure. Determined to prove to Riley that there are still good and decent men out there, Trevor hatches a plan to woo her socks off. And it worked, a little too well. It was flirty, sexy, fun and most of all easy. Neither one was trying too hard to impress the other, they were just themselves. And in turn, it became more than a little something to pass the time. But there was an expiration date on their fun from the start...
Told in Kristen Proby's fantastic dual POV, The Beauty in Us was a sweet and sexy journey. Riley and Trevor's romance proved that if you want anything bad enough, you do whatever it takes to make it happen. Full of laughter, steam and love I was totally captivated. I am so ready for more of the amazing group of women who make up the core of Seduction, especially the fiery Mia!
About the Author
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.
