New Release: Listen To Me: A Fusion Novel by Kristen Proby


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?

Rhys has been at the top of his game as a major league pitcher for the Chicago Cubs for more than ten years. Baseball is in his blood.

When Rhys’ shoulder has healed and he’s given the chance to return to his team, will he leave the family he’s come to love behind, or will he stay with Gabby and Sam?

Review: Easy Love (The Boudreaux Series, Book #1) by Kristen Proby



The Boudreaux Series – Sexy. Intriguing. Easy.

Eli Boudreaux’s family has built ships and boats in Louisiana for generations. He comes from a hard working, wealthy family and his empire is growing by leaps and bounds. At thirty, he is the youngest CEO to ever head Bayou Enterprises, co-chairing with his eldest brother. His head for business and his no-nonsense work ethic is also quickly making him the best the company has seen in generations. His staff admires him, women adore him and Eli’s family is solid. But he’s recently discovered that someone on the inside of his business is stealing from him and he’s determined to find out who.

Kate O’Shaughnessy is hired by companies all over the world to slip inside and investigate every member of the organization from the CEO down to the custodial staff to find the person or persons responsible for embezzling. She’s excellent at blending, becoming part of the team, and finding the weakest link. She’s smart, quick-witted, and she’s now been hired by Bayou Enterprises, specifically Eli Boudreaux. The attraction is immediate and the chemistry is off the charts, but Kate has heard all about Eli’s playboy past and she has a job to do. Sleeping with the boss isn’t a part of that job, even if just the sound of her name rolling off that Cajun tongue and the way he fills out a designer suit does make her sweat.

Eli’s southern charms surprise Kate. The man whose reputation labels him as a ruthless, callous womanizer is not the man she’s coming to know intimately. He’s generous, protective and makes her smile. Cracking through Kate’s cool, reserved demeanor and discovering her love of sexy, expensive lingerie is a challenge Eli can’t resist, but her sweet nature, love of family and sense of humor pull at him in ways no one else ever has.

But when the person responsible for trying to single-handedly dismantle Eli’s empire comes to light, and it’s time for Kate to move on, to what lengths will Eli go to keep the woman he he’s fallen in love with by his side?

My Review: 

Extremely Sexy. Beyond Intriguing. Easy to Devour. 

This story is about Kate O’Shaugnessy, a sexy, smart, and witty, undercover embezzlement investigator and the sexy as hell playboy billionaire Co-CEO of Bayou Industries, Eli Boudreaux. Kate was hired by the three Boudreaux siblings who currently run their family’s company together, Savannah (Van), Beau, and Eli (of course), to investigate their employees, so they can find out who masterminded the embezzlement scheme that has occurred within their company. Kate and Savannah (Van) went to college together with Declan who is the Van’s twin brother. Kate has previously met all of the Boudreaux’s siblings except for Eli. When they first met the chemistry between them was HOT!

While Kate is working for Bayou industries, she and Eli become close. Kate is recovering from being in a horrible relationship and doesn’t really care to jump back into another relationship, plus she doesn’t live in New Orleans, where this story takes place and where the Boudreauxs reside, she lives in Denver. She’s only in town for this current job that shouldn’t last more than six weeks. Eli, the playboy billionaire extraordinaire, has no desire to be in a relationship as well. So, they become friends with benefits, but Eli doesn’t really care for that label since he has more respect for Kate than just a random booty call!

“I’m consumed with emotion. What the hell is wrong with me?”

Yep, this is Eli’s thoughts after he figures out he has feelings for Kate. The sex scenes are EXTREMELY STEAMY!

And in the end, “But you made the man who was incapable of love fall in love with you.” (*sigh and melt!!)

I really enjoyed how well the New Orleans setting was incorporated to make you feel like you are there. Research for this setting was really spot on!

I absolutely love this book and I highly recommend it!

I MUST ADMIT… I love Kristen Proby! I love her With You Series and I simply can’t wait to DEVOUR the rest of this series! She’s an excellent writer who can craft an entire series where you fall in love with every last character!

This is a MUST READ!

Nothing has ever come easy for Lila Bailey. She’s fought for every good thing in her life during every day of her thirty-one years. Aside from that one night with an impossible to deny stranger a year ago, Lila is the epitome of responsible.

Steadfast. Strong.

She’s pulled herself out of the train wreck of her childhood, proud to be a professor at Tulane University and laying down roots in a city she’s grown to love. But when some of her female students are viciously murdered, Lila’s shaken to the core and unsure of whom she can trust in New Orleans.

In an attempt to move on from the tragic loss of his wife, Asher Smith moved his daughter and himself to a new city, ready for a fresh start. A damn fine police lieutenant, but new to the New Orleans force, Asher has a lot to prove to his colleagues and himself.

With a murderer terrorizing the Tulane University campus, Asher finds himself toe-to-toe with the one woman that haunts his dreams. His hands, his lips, his body know her as intimately as he’s ever known anyone. As he learns her mind and heart as well, Asher wants nothing more than to keep her safe, in his bed, and in his and his daughter’s lives for the long haul.
