The Beauty of Us
Riley Gibson is over the moon at the prospect of having her restaurant, Seduction, on the Best Bites TV network. This could be the big break she’s been waiting for. But the idea of having an in-house show on a regular basis is a whole other matter. Their ...more
Kristen Proby’s Fusion series is sexy, sweet, and a whole lot of fun! That’s what I expected when I started The Beauty of Us and I wasn’t disappointed. Riley’s book was fantastic! And the hero in the story was my favorite of this series to date! I love nerdy guys!
Riley Gibson is one of the 5 best friends who own and operate Seduction, a popular and sexy restaurant. Riley is the genius behind the marketing. She’s gotten the restaurant a huge break in the form of reality tv. They are b ...more
Fusion keeps getting better and better! The Beauty of Us was so wonderfully refreshing in whole its geeky sexiness!
Kristen Proby always gives a very heartfelt and genuine love story, and this book is no exception, therefore a pleasure to read from start to finish. From the moment they met, I really felt in Riley’s shoes: her feelings, her doubt, her resolution and her craving for love and connection.
Riley, Fusion’s PR and one of the quintet of beautiful women that ...more

Kristen Proby just can't go wrong with this series. Book after book she flawlessly captivates me with these characters and makes me jealous that they aren't my friends. I loved getting to learn more about Riley and getting her horrible dating stories had me laughing like a crazy person. She and Trevor had a close relationship from the very beginning and I enjoyed that they started off almost as friends before anything else happened.
Overall, this is a big recommend ...more
Sassy,independent, and feisty heroine. Check! Nerdy, sweet and sexy hero. Check! Yup, combine those two, you have a recipe for one delectable and swoonworthy romance. The Fusion Series has been a delight to read but I got to say The Beauty Of Us is hands down my favorite of the series.
Dating sucks and that is something Riley Gibson can happily agree on. Trying to meet guys is kinda hard when she is always busy working and so when ...more
I wish there was less unnecessary OW-drama, and make it double 😴. His ex-wife and his game partner (yes, the man killed zombies online). And the only OM from h's past was a total jerk. As if they "pumped" hero's character and the h was with only losers in her life...
Nevertheless I would have clicked 4 when not for these 2 points:
- he forgot the condom as they had sex for the 1st time. Of course they were both clean and she's protected -> h ...more
I loved it! It was sweet, sexy and super HOT in the bedroom... or wherever. Two great characters and a gang of family and friends. Just exactly what you expect in a Kristen Proby book. It was a bit dramatic there for a minute and there was some serious inta-love working here. But as previously stated. I loved it. KP is an auto but for me. She doesn't disappoint me.
I mostly listened to the audio book for this one because, REAL LIFE GONE CRAZY!(and there is no ...more

He kisses my head, and I feel so safe. So pampered. I can’t remember the last time a guy picked me up.
I don’t know if I’ve ever dated a guy strong enough to pick me up and carry me.
That’s kind of sad.
I’ve dated pussies.

The Beauty Of Us is the fourth installment in this fantastic series the "Fusion" and boy I am having a blast with this group of women and their men. If you are new to this series, Fusion is a series that is centered around five women that starts a romantic and sexy restaurant called "Seduction" and Kristen Proby has done a superb job with developing this series and showing the female friendships that develop and I love seeing these five wom ...more
From the very first book in this series, I’ve said it is the relationship between the women behind Seduction that made these books special and that continues in The Beauty of Us. While this is a romance (and we’ll get to that in a moment), it is these smart, funny, successful women who love and support one another without fail that make this series special even as their lives add husbands and children. I enjoyed The Beauty of Us, but not as much as I’ve enjoyed the rest of the series as there we ...more
Hmm, I realllly wanted to like this book as much as the others in this series.
But it just fell flat for me, I didn’t hate it just didn’t LOVVVVE it. I like Riley, but she seems a little needed in this book.
And there was dramalama ack you all know how much I hate drama for drama’s sake.
Two things I don’t like about Trevor, One I thought he was an alcoholic for 10 year.. Yet he was drinking beer and something else on other night.. That was confusing.
Second, he has th ...more
It's back to Seduction we go with Kristen Proby's Fusion series. The Beauty of Us features Riley's story. Five best friends - Cami, Kat, Riley, Addie, and Mia each using their skills and passions decided to open a restaurant/bar called Seduction, and as they are all passionate about their areas, it has become one of the most successful businesses. Riley is the marketing and communications side of the business and has managed to score the restaurant a segment on the TV Show Best Bites. The thing ...more
One of my favorite things about Kristen Proby's books is that the characters just plain love one another. They fall in love, it's genuine and heartfelt, they are honest about it (at least in their internal dialog) and they don't play games. This makes it, in a lot of ways, a smooth ride. I know when I am reading one of her books, it always makes me feel like I have curled up in a comfy chair, with a glass of wine and a book. It's comfort ...more
If you haven't read the Fusion series before, I think it's a perfect summer series. It's sweet, fun and sexy contemporary romance. The stories aren't all that complicated and that lack of angst makes them a joy to breeze through. The fun characters are a plus as well. THE BEAUTY OF US is close to being my fave in t ...more
“Are your knees feeling weak?” “They always feel weak when I’m with you.”
“When you smile at me, it’s like a light has been turned on in a dark room.” “I’d do anything for that smile.”
From sassy and strong women to swoon worthy alpha males, The Beauty of Us is amazing story.
Told from dual points of view, The Beauty of Us follows the story of Trevor and Riley. Riley couldn’t be more thrilled over the possiblity of Seduction being featured on TV. It will be hard wo ...more

The story is worth 3.5 stars. It is engaging, has good humor and the background set in the past books make it easy to get the whole dynamic; however, when it came to the main couple... *sighs*
During the first half of the book I found Trevor absolutely enchanting: he is hard-working, good-looking and the perfect gentleman. Then we had to see OW stuff and I just got annoyed with the time it took to solve problems that are actually quite simple ...more
The series features five best friends who run the popular Seduction restaurant together. The books are interconnected. Each book is narrated by a different one of the women. The Beauty of Us could be read as a standalone. Riley's romance begins in this book. However, all of the narrators from the previous books are featured in this book. And the four other women are in this book a lot. A ...more
