Kristen Proby is known for writing heartfelt characters with deep connections and sizzling passion. This April, she will seduce readers’ senses with a brand new series, Fusion, from William Morrow Paperbacks, in which five best friends open a hot new restaurant together. Today, we are thrilled to bring you the Review & Excerpt Tour for LISTEN TO ME, the first book in the Fusion Series releasing April 12, 2016. LISTEN TO ME finds a hot former rock star looking for a steady gig at the restaurant, but he’ll have to convince the prickly front-of-house manager to take a chance on him—with her business and her heart.

In New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby’s brand new series, five best friends open a hot new restaurant, but one of them gets much more than she bargained for when a sexy former rock star walks through the doors—and into her heart.

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?

A man walks onto the stage and sits on the stool, strums his guitar. The MC didn’t announce his name. 
The singer is wearing a black T-shirt and jeans. No shoes. A hat is pulled down his forehead, shadowing his face.

But I’d recognize those tattoos anywhere.

“Oh my God, I think that’s Jake Knox,” I whisper to Kat in disbelief.

“The tattoos,” she breathes and I roll my eyes. “God, I used to be in love with him. I had his posters on my walls when I was in high school.”

“Most did,” I reply and watch as his fingers play the strings on his guitar as if he’s making love to a woman. “God, he can play.”

“What’s he doing at an open-mic night?” Kat turns wide eyes to me. “Does he live here?”

I nod. “Yeah, I heard somewhere that he lives nearby. Maybe he needs an ego boost?”

But then he begins to sing a familiar Lifehouse song, and my chest tightens. I love this song. I love his voice. It’s raw and rich and just a little bit raspy. It’s pure sex.

“He’d be absolutely perfect.” Kat’s voice is a whisper. She probably didn’t mean to say it out loud.

“I know we can’t afford him. He probably plays at celebrity weddings and shit.”

Jake glances up, showing his face and those amazing green eyes for the first time, and aims them right at me. He sings at least five lines, holding my gaze, then winks and lowers his head again.


“Speaking of egos,” I murmur. “That would be a hot mess.”

“A sexy-as-fuck hot mess,” Kat replies. “God, look at the way his muscles bunch as he plays.”

Trust me, I noticed. You’d have to be blind with an IQ of minus 20 to not notice the way Jake Knox moves. He makes everything in me come awake. Which makes sense because he’s probably been trained to do that. He has to sell music, after all.

** I received an ARC in exchange of an honest review **

What can I say? I've been fan of Kristen's books since... a really long time. And this book didn't disappoint me. Listen to Me is the first book in the Fusion series, and it's a contemporary romance with a lot a lot of good moments.

If you know or don't, Kristen's male characters, let me tell you that they're sexy, sweet, funny, sometimes they can be dumbs, but at the end they're pretty sexys. And well, the female characters are... the best!! I love them, those girls can make a boy cry -in a good way, sometimes.

So now we have Addison Wade and Jake Keller; Addison is the co-owner of the new restaurant in town, she and her friends are a family, they really support each other and they're ready to hide a body if they need to, all to protect a friend. The book is about Addison and Jake's relationship but at the same time is the "introduction" for us to know more about these five girls, they have the best kind of friendship you can desire, and I really loved it.

Addison thinks there's something bad with her, due to her lack of good luck when it comes to men, and it may well be her attraction for the bad-boy kind, so now she wants someone completely different from that, someone who loves her -or at least, who doesn't hurt her. But when Jake walks in her life she can't deny their attraction from each other. Jake was -is- a musician, even when he's not performing anymore, he's making music, but he knows he miss the feeling/emotion of performing in front of a lot of people, and when the opportunity of start performing again appears, he can't say no, and the sexy, sarcastic co-owner of the restaurant is the best plus to his life.

This book plunges us into their story, in the good and bad moments of their relationship, the ups and downs, the funny moments, all that and so much more! Kristen has created another amazing story. Both main character have their past stories, but love is much more powerful, and for what people say, it always win.

Overall, this sexy, sweet, funny, sarcastic, truly, lovely story can give you a good time. And I'm looking forward for the second book that is going out in August! As always, I loved Kristen's writing.
