Blush for Me
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 ...more
Blush for Me is the third book in Kristen Proby's Fusion series. When I'm in the mood for a fun and steamy romance, this series has really hit the spot. Ever since I met the girls at Fusion, I was excited for Kat's story. It didn't disappoint. Kat was just as fantastic as I thought she would be.
Kat is one of those women who is perfectly content being single. When she goes away on a work trip, she decides she needs a little sexcation. Vacation sex without strings. She meets Mac who f ...more
Reading this series is like sitting down with a group of friends and chatting for hours. These characters become so real for me and Kristen Proby manages to weave her readers into this series and make them a part of it. I can't honestly say how or why this happens, I just know that when I pick up one of her books I'm prepared to be taken away to another place and experience the characters stories along with them.
Blush for Me follows Kat and Mac, two wine ...more
Blush for Me is an amazing, lighthearted, thoughtful and sexy story! The third installment of the series, and I have to say, my favorite so far, tells us the story of Kat, the independent, sassy and overall kickass bar manager of our Seduction restaurant – the setting of all the series -, and Mac, the handsome, caring, and charming wine tour businessmen and how a simple sexcation becomes so, so much more!
Kat meets Mac in her worst nightmare come true, her first flight, and he ...more
Kristen Proby, is one of my go-to authors when it comes to contemporary romance, this is an author that for me has delivered again and again when it comes to her couples, series development and the story-lines she gives them.
Blush for Me delivered on all three counts as expected, and the Fusion series just goes from strength to strength as each of the Seduction girls meets and falls in love with their matches, and quirky Bar Manager Kat’s co ...more
Kristen Proby fuses together another sweet, sexy, and steamy romance that will make her readers blush as hearts will be fluttering for Ryan "Mac" MacKenzie in her latest release,Blush For Me. If you have been following the Fusion Series, then you would understand why I love this series so much because Kristen does it again as whips up one sophisticated modern romance that weaves friendship and passion on the forefront.
In this th ...more
“Have you flown before, Kat?”
“No.” I swallow hard and tighten my hands into fists.
“Okay, take a deep breath,” he says. He’s not touching me, which is good because I’d have to break his nose, and this is already stressful enough. But his voice is soothing.
I fell in love with Katrina Meyers from the first moment she was introduced in Listen to Me. She’s one of the partners of Seduction, the one who runs the bar. Kat’s cynical, very smart, tough and a bit of a bad-ass. I love the way she dre...more
I m just luv in this series so much. It just keeps getting better and better. This book is Kat's I was dying for her book she is totally bad ass and I was dying to know more about her. She is just brilliant she as great personality and her style is just fab. She is great at her job she is coming owner if the bar with her best friends. Kat is highly intelligent but isnt cocky she chose what she luvs and i luv that about her. The way she meets Mac is so funny it's ...more
Don't get me wrong I loved getting to know Kat and Mac and spending time with them they are a kickass couple and I loved catching up with the rest of the gang and being introduced to some new people. This is a classic KP romance with her usual format.
I wonder if Riley and Chase will end up together ...more
This is my favorite book from The Fusion Series!!!! I've found it and I am sooo glad I waited until this one to give my 5 stars to Kat and Mac. They truly deserve it:) After reading the first 2 books, I was so drawn into this universe that Kristen created and I wanted to stay a little longer. The friendship between Addie, Mia, Cami, Kat and Riley is amazing and the stories they share are steamy and enjoyable.
"Blush for Me" is my favorite, not only in plot but also in characters. I loved Kat for ...more
But the last hour of the book, ruins it. The twist is just so out of the place and confusing everything. So i drop my rating to 3 stars.
What a pity. I like Kat. She maintain her fiestiness through out the book. And Max is such a patient sweet man.
BLUSH FOR ME is book three in the series, but it can be read as a standalone. Personally, I think it would be EVEN BETTER if you read it in order, because there is so much characte ...more
“I’m not some damsel that needs to be rescued from the storm. I am the goddamn storm.”
Loved the heroine.
Not every day I have a pleasure to read a sassy girl :-)
“Stop being romantic, you’re supposed to just fuck me blind.”
The hero was ok I guess. Couldn’t connect with him.
He lost me at “passive women” comment. Completely and unrecoverable lost me.
(view spoiler)[ “Good. You’ve been fucking around with too many passive women,” he (H’s brother) says with a smirk, and leans his shou ...more
this missed in quite a few places for me, it didnt expand on the story it sorted of skimmed over verything
yes it a lovely sweet read & it was just too nice i suppose
it was a book served with a massive portion of cheese :) xx ...more
Book Review: 5 Million Stars
I love the Fusion series so much! I adored the first two books like crazy—you can see how much in my reviews of Listen to Me and Close to You —, and I knew I’d love Kat’s story, but Oh. My. God. this book was perfection! I was hook from the very beginning, i transported myself to the Fusion universe and I didn’t want to get out of there. The romanticism and eroticism in this story was flawless, I fell in love with Kat and Mac and I didn’t ...more
Kat runs the wine bar at Seduction. She is like a colorful, pretty pin-up girl with a quirky sense of style and tats. She's sassy, stubborn, but also sweet. She's stepping out of her comfort zone by getting on airplane to attend a wine confere ...more
There are bits that I liked and bits that I couldn't find myself interested in: I liked Kat's individuality and how Kristen Proby took pains to highlight it; her compassion and her spunk stood out most of all. But Mac somehow faded into the shadows for me. As a typical male protagonist (the ...more
These books are about a group of women (best friends) who opened a trendy Portland restaurant together. The friends are: Addie, Cami, Kat, Riley and Mia. The first book was about Addie. The second book was about Cami. And this book is about Kat. Kat runs the bar at Seduction.
"Wicked hot, charming, and wittingly captivating. Kristen Proby made me blush several times ...more
Easy to read romance - although I actually listened to chunks of this on audiobook. Mac and Kat have an instant chemistry and embark on what is supposed to be one week of hot sex. A sexcation. No strings. No last names. But Mac finds he can’t stay away from the captivating redhead.
Mac was a more deep thinking hero than I’d anticipated & he was very likeable. Kat is badass and I thought she was well written.
I’ve jumped in at book 3 but this is easily read as a standalone.
Rarely do I have the joy of encountering a book in which I hate both the hero and heroine, but that was the case for this book.
The hero initially seemed decent, until he dropped this line:
I don’t do serious relationships,” I say, wanting to make sure she knows the score here. “I like you, but I won’t be pursuing you after this.”
Kind of an asshole thing to say to a woman you’re about to sleep with, but the heroine up until this point has made it clear she only wants a fling as well, s ...more
Blush for Me is the third installment in the Fusion Series and follows the story of Mac and Kat. For wine bar manager, Kat, there isn’t much that scares her. Between her strong and impressive IQ and devotion to her friends and job, she is a total no-nonsense type of gal. But when Kat finds herself on a flight for a wine tour, she quickly discovers that there is one thing that could bring her to her knees….Flying. As luck would have it though, she was graced with the best p ...more
In book 3 of the Fusion series, Proby delivers what she does best. Some memorable characters with steamy scenes. Although Kat is not my favorite of the 4 Fusion friends, she was fun, funny and, I think a lot of women will find her relatable. Kat is free spirit that connects with Mac while on a Napa bound vacation/work research trip(first of all, where do I sign up for that!!). The vacation served its purpose, she met some new friends, drank some win ...more
Kat and Mac meet on a flight to Napa and have an instant connection. Mac helps her survive her flight. So when the two end up at a convention together for a week, they decide to let the attraction come out full force and have a week of no-strings attached "sexacation". And Kat hit the jackpot with ...more
I loved this story, Kat & Mac are fantastic!
I love that Kat is this big strong character. She knows what she wants who she is, but she is human too and she has fears just like the rest of us.
And well Mac just happens to be there when she needed him. They form this connection that can’t be denied and I loved that she resisted just a bit not too much.
Very little drama I love that. And come on Sebastian York is the voice of Mac need I say more. Yum!
Though Abby Craden isn’t ...more
What can I say? I'm a sucker for a hot rockabilly chick! I knew from the start that I would enjoy this book. There's something about Kat's personality that I really wanted to explore more and when we first see the setup of the romance being a hot fling at a wine convention that she attends for work, I was sold.
Kat is quite confident (except when she has to fly) and has no problem going for what she wants. Whether that's just a fling with Mac, or realizing she wants to explore more later on.
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 ...more
