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…?
I fell in love with Kristen Proby’s books a long time ago. They were some of the first romances of this kind I ever read. She has surely climbed into a spot on my list of favorite authors.
Blush for me is the third book in her Fusion series. It tells the story of the restaurant’s wine connoisseur Katrina Meyers and Ryan “Mac” MacKenzie.
I have been waiting for Katrina’s story since the beginning of this series. She is a tattooed pinup badass with the IQ to match, but she has one fear, flying. So when a business trip requires her to fly, she gets pushed outside her comfort zone. But to guide her through her panic attack is the gorgeous man in the next seat.
Mac happens to be on the same plane as the sexy as sin Kat on her flight from hell, but he gets opportunity to spend the week with her. Mac is the classic Proby alpha, with an extra amount of sexy, and when he is forced to manage more than his business, his soft side is shown.
This feels much like the rest of the stories in Ms. Proby’s back catalogue, as this is a sweet and sexy story. However it fell a little flat. I really liked both Kat and Mac but it left me wanting more. This was a little predictable, which is why Blush for Me gets 3.5 stars.
