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?
Kristen Proby is probably my favorite author when it comes to writing a story about a group of girl friends. Her scenes and the way she captures their friendship is on point every time I read one of her books. The Fusion series is about 5 girl friends who run a restaurant together. If Listen To Me is any indication as to how this series will go, I’m gonna put my money on her having another hit here.
Everyone knows I like the darker stuff. I love angst and stuff that throws you out your comfort zone. So why do I like Kristen Proby? She does not write anything near that. Good Question. When I want something that is not my normal I go for the best. I think Kristen is one of them. When I want sappy, swoony (it’s a word don’t worry), heart flutters, and all that Hallmark Movie Channel stuff. I go Kristen Proby every time.
Grab this one and love it as much as I did. Also, if you haven’t read her With Me In Seattle books…HOW ARE WE EVEN FRIENDS. *dramatic sigh*
