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

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.

4.5 'Blushing' Stars

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!

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

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.

I have been thinking about how to rate Blush for Me since I finished it last night and I have gone with 4 stars this is the first time I have rated a Kristen Proby full length novel lower than 5 stars.

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

This book could be an easy read. Sweet, low angst,low drama and just short easy sweet romantic steamy romantic that kind of read.

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.

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
Can I just take a moment and express just how much I ADORE this series?! The Fusion Series by the amazing Kristen Proby is absolutely WONDERFUL! These characters are EVERYTHING and book covers are some of my all time favorite book covers ever! Ms. Proby knows just what her fans like and she delivers EVERY SINGLE TIME.

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

“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.

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.

The Fusion series keeps pulling me more into as I get more attached to this dynamic groups of five friends and and co-business owners and them men who have started claiming them. We've seen Addie and Jake, and Cami and Landon fall, and now it is Kat's turn.

That I forgot the heroine's name while writing this review (and needed to check her name) should have given me some warning signs. Is there a way to admit less bluntly that 'Blush for Me' bored me throughout?

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

Blush for Me is the third book in the Fusion series. This series is contemporary romance and the books are interconnected. Each book has different narrators. But all of the previous narrators appear in the subsequent books.

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.

Blush for Me was straight up awesome. The witty banter between the hero and heroine was off the charts perfect. I wanted to hang out with this couple and be best friends with them! The intelligence it took to write such fascinating dialogue blew me away. I bow down to Kristen's ability. This couple was unique and refreshing but realistic too. An amazing love story that I'd absolutely read again and again.

"Wicked hot, charming, and wittingly captivating. Kristen Proby made me blush several times
4 Mac & Kat Stars

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.

This author is one who I have most of her books that she has written and one of those authors that I keep meaning to read. I have to admit; I was like once I had finished Blush For Me - what took me so long? As I loved Kristen Proby's writing. It had just the right touch of romantic comedy but romance and even better the lead female character Kat was smart as she is a member of Mensa and her parents are Rocket Scientists.

DNF @ 25%

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

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

Blush for Me everything you expect in a Kristen Proby novel. Fun, flirty, sexy and full of heart and heat. I get giddy when I get a new novel from Kristen on my kindle and Blush for Me is no different.

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

5 Blush for Me Stars

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!

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.
