Book 3, Fusion - A Fusion Novel
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
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…?
Kat & Mac's Story
Does what happens in Napa Valley stay in Napa Valley? Kat Myers sure hopes it does because her plan for a sexcation is of upmost importance for her business trip, especially if she has to get on a plane to do so.
Mac Mackenzie is a conservative, bossy man who doesn’t do relationships, so a week of sex with a stunning woman is exactly how he wants to spend his nights in Napa, knowing that he can control her in the bedroom and banter with her outside of it because Kat is not a passive woman, even if she enjoys Mac giving her orders during sex.
But one week doesn’t seem to be enough for them even if that was the superficial agreement they agreed on, so when Kat and Mac find themselves in “relationship territory,” the unexpected opportunity for more…to date…isn’t something they can say no to because letting go of the crazy chemistry they have is not something they can do.
I seriously want to be Kat Myers when I grow up!! I love everything about her…she’s extremely independent and strongly opinionated; she owns her quirky and edgy style, showing off her colorful tattoos, and her beauty, intelligence, and friendly personality draw people to her, and as a bartender and co-owner of Seduction, all of her attributes set her customers at ease and allow her to use her knowledge to provide advice and a safe place for them to share their troubles.
I’m absolutely loving Kristen Proby’s Fusion series; it has a great mix of steam, sass, and a bit of suspense that keeps readers intrigued. The relationships that the co-owners of Seduction have with each other is beautifully displayed in each book and that bond continues to grow the further into the series Proby takes her readers. Mia seems to be up next and it will be interesting to see if she changes her mind about the opportunity that is headed her way!
4 Poison Apples (The Fairest of All Book Reviews)
All the Kristen Goodness!!!
So excited to share the third book in Kristen Proby’s Fusion Series, Blush for Me. This is book is a (very) hot, sexy romance that will sweep you off feet. Mac MacKenzie and Kat Meyers are a couple whose story will keep smiling and fanning yourself to the very last page.
Kat is every bit her own woman. Strong, brilliant and sexy, it is impossible not believe that she won’t pop off the page just by shear will alone. I loved her heart, it was big and open, especially to those that she held most dear. But getting to know her through the eyes of this besotted man was just amazing –like opening a series of gifts, she constantly surprised him.
Mac. MacKenzie. In a word, he is DIVINE. From the moment, we meet him, he is this gentle force that literally makes you swoon. He wasn’t interesting in changing Kat, but simply offered her a place to land, free of the world’s noise. He took care of her in ways that were so beautiful and yet so simple, it took my breath away.
Kat and Mac together are glorious. I adored their banter, it was quick, funny and crazy-sexy. But their chemistry? That fire burns so white-hot. But deeper than that, Mac and Kat were two kindred souls who connected and complemented each other in ways that neither realized that they were craving.
The heart of Blush for Me (and series) is this amazing quintet of women and their friendship, which is their North Star. While they may not be related by blood, make no mistake, they are sisters who share a deep and abiding love. They are there for each other through the joys, sorrows, hell and high water; always at the ready with a good vintage and a proper frozen dairy product. Come after one, you come after them all. Fair warning — you better be ready, because these women are armed with sharp minds and words — They will cut you to the quick. With each book I am convinced I can’t love them more, but I can and I do. I can’t wait to read the stories that Kristen weaves for Riley and Mia.
This is such a fantastic series! The girls at Seduction are everything you’d want in a group of friends. This book is a standalone, though it’s part of the Fusion Series (all standalones) and I recommend al of them!
Blush For Me is light on the drama, which a plus for me. Though it’s not without it’s angstful moments, giving depth to Mac and Kat’s story. This books is all kinds of sexy and delicious!
Kat is a spitfire. Her personality is big and loud, right down to her funky style. She’s full of humor and life, although it was nice to see her more humanized in this book, with her fear of flying. Nobody’s perfect, so Kat became that much more real for having flaws.
Mac…let me say this, Kristen Proby knows how to write an alpha. I’m constantly, drooling, swooning, and burning for her heroes. So yeah, Mac is the epitome of alpha with his dominant and possessive personality, sprinkled with sweetness. I lve a man who figures out what he wants and goes after it with everything he’s got. He can uncork this bottle any time he wants…
A “sexcation” is all they are after, so neither one is expecting the lasting feelings once they’ve departed from Nappa. Kat can’t get him out of her mind, no matter how hard she tries.
Mac is in much the same condition, except he decides to act on it and shocks the beautiful Kat by showing up in Portland!
These two are perfect for each other. Their story is fun, witty, full of it’s ups and downs, and lands on my favorite part, the happily ever after.
Kristen Proby is a brilliant storyteller. She brings her characters to life and draws you into a story whether through drama or laughter. This book is another one for the re-read shelf!
