BLUSH FOR ME!
New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby continues to delight the senses with the latest novel in her delectable Fusion series.
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 death trap with wings, the turbulence from hell has her reaching for any safe haven—including the incredibly handsome guy sitting next to her.
Ryan “Mac” MacKenzie hasn’t been able to get his sexy seatmate out of his head. The way she clung to him stirred something inside him he didn’t think existed: tenderness. As the owner of a successful wine touring company, Mac thinks he’s got a handle on what life can throw at him and he’s not prepared for any surprises, especially in the feelings department. And when he brings a tour into Seduction, he sees the petite spitfire he just can’t forget.
Mac is determined to discover what else they have in common besides fine wine and the inability to keep their hands off each other. But what will it take for two stubborn people to realize that what they have is so much more than a hot chemistry between the sheets and to admit to falling in love…?

“You look like you’re feeling better.”
Mac. That’s Mac’s voice in my ear. A shiver runs through me as I turn around and look up, way up, into his green eyes.
“I am,” I reply and take a sip of my wine. Was he that good looking on the plane? “I didn’t realize you were attending this conference.”
“You had other things on your mind earlier,” he says smoothly and motions for the bartender. “I’ll have what she’s having, and another for her as well.”
“What if you don’t like pinot?” I ask and tilt my head to the side.
“I like it all,” he says with a wink.
“Do you know many people here?” he asks, nodding toward Sally who has moved on to chat with another group of people.
“A few. I’ve not met most of them in person, unless they were up in Washington or Oregon. How about you?”
“Same,” he says with a grin. “This is my first conference down in Napa Valley. And it’s off to a great start.”
“Right.” I laugh and shake my head. “Dealing with a crazy chick on the plane is exactly the best way to start your trip.”
“It is,” he says and looks me dead in the eye. “She wasn’t that crazy. She was scared. There’s a difference.”
“Well, she’s fine now.”
“I’m glad.” His lips tip up into a smile and my stomach clenches. He has a dimple in his left cheek.
I want to lick it.
I take a sip of my fresh glass of wine and smirk to myself. Perhaps Mac fits the sexcation bill.
“What just went through that gorgeous head of yours?”
“I’m not drunk enough to tell you yet,” I reply honestly. Mac’s eyes widen briefly, and then he simply smiles at me.
“There’s a lot of wine in this place.”
“Thank God for that.”
A few hours later, after chatting with many people, new and those I already know, including Mac, he escorts me up to my room.
But when we reach my door, he leans in and kisses my cheek. Just the cheek. I frown up at him.
“This is supposed to be a sexcation, not a fucking dating game.” It’s a grumble, but I’m shocked to hear it actually leave my lips, rather than stay in my head where it’s supposed to be.
“A what?” Mac asks.
“Nothing.” I shake my head and pull my key card out of my handbag. “Good night.”
“Yeah.” I look back at him and sigh a little at the sexy dimple in his cheek and the way his shirt pulls against his shoulders as he leans on the doorframe.
“I’ll see you in the morning.”
“It’s already morning,” I remind him.
“It won’t be too long, then.”
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 becomes her save anchor, grounding and calming her when that very thing seemed almost impossible. Even in this less than appealing scenario, they can’t help but notice the immediate attraction, so when they are in their destination and realize they are spending one week together, they decide decide to enjoy it to the fullest, and Kat gets her sexcation, and they are more than happy with their no strings attached sexy times. Or so they thought…
Of course the plan falls flat when after that week they just crave each other more. So, for the first time in his life Mac decides to work for the attention and care of a woman, and Kat was more than worthy of that. It was game on!!!
I need to put some effort into it, and honestly, she deserves no less than that.
Romance just isn’t on my radar because it’s not something I do.
But I’m about to.
Kat had her own reservations, and doubts because of her past, but like the incredibly intelligent and rational woman that she is, soon she realizes that Mac is not just another men, and how could she not? He romanced the sh!t out of her! Swoon worthy, hearts in the eyes kind of romance! And reading Kat her sexy romances? HOT!!!
“I’m falling for you, Katrina,” I murmur against her lips. Her eyes open in surprise, and just when I expect her to say something along the lines of this is moving so fast, she does what she always does.
She surprises me.
“It’s about time you caught up,”
Yes, they are both equally amazing, I can’t decide who I loved more, because Kristen Proby created one of the best female main characters I’ve ever read. I adored everything about her from her rockabilly clothes to her sarcastic wit, she was AWESOME!!! But man, Mac is the romance hero dreams are made of! And OTT sexy to boot!
I want her. I never stop wanting her.
“She’s my life, Jake. It’s like I was just walking through life in a fog until her, and now I see everything crystal clear. She’s put everything into focus for me. My life doesn’t work without her.”
Sweet baby Jesus! See what I’m talking about?!
Ok, I’ll try to restrain my Mac fan-girling now and say it was in incredible to see all the Seduction gang, and they give us some fantastic in depth moments, and a lot of hilarious ones (poor Riley, lol), and some heartwarming scenes. The side plot is well developed, and I loved how it flowed naturally without stealing from the unforgettable love story! Kat and Mac were perfect together and I can’t wait to see more of their future in the upcoming books! And that snippet makes me wonder, who comes next? Mia or Riley? It can go both ways, and I want more Fusion NOW!!!
“I love you, but even those words seem too simple to describe how I feel about you. It’s an ache, right here in my chest, but it’s an ache that you don’t want to end. I look at you, and I’m calm. I hold you and I’m complete.
“Loving you, Kat, is like coming home, and it’s better than any other feeling I’ve ever had.”
“Loving you is what calms me in the storm, Mac. It’s the safest thing I’ve ever done.”
“As long as we’re together, it doesn’t matter the pace. It’s the journey, not the destination.”
