New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby delivers another sizzling novel in her delectable and sexy Fusion series.
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 lives would be turned upside down, and convincing Mia, her best friend and head chef of Seduction, that having cameras in her kitchen every day is a good idea is daunting. Still, Riley knows it’s an opportunity she can’t afford to pass on. And when she meets Trevor Cooper, the show’s executive producer, she’s stunned by their intense chemistry.
Trevor’s sole intention is to persuade Riley to allow Best Bites TV to do a show on her restaurant. But when he walks into Riley’s office, he stops dead in his tracks. The professional, aloof woman on the phone is incredibly beautiful and funny. But can he convince her that he’s interested in Riley for himself? Or is he using the undeniable pull between them to persuade her to agree to his offer?
Stephanie’s 4 Blush Review
The Beauty of Us is the fourth book in Kristen Proby’s Fusion Series. We get to know Riley, one of the five awesome friends and owners of Seduction, a trendy, upscale restaurant in downtown Portland. The series is winding down as Riley’s story is told. It can be read as a standalone but the first three books set the scene. Each addition to the Fusion Series gives you glance at what is continuing on in the lives of these five amazing women.
Riley Gibson is focused, driven, intelligent and independent. But she is not so lucky when it comes to dating. Riley works hard as the PR & marketing manager of Seduction so it leaves little time to meet new people.
“You don’t get it,” I reply with a sigh. “Attraction is fine. Flirting is fine. But since when has it been okay not to show any respect for the person you’re with?”
Trevor Cooper is the executive producer of Best Bites TV. His attraction to Riley is immediate as is Riley’s attraction to him. Trevor does not want to mix business with pleasure but their chemistry is too strong to ignore. Trevor wants to show Riley how a real date should happen unlike the disasters of her past few dates.
The writing is smooth and the story flows. The ladies of Seduction are awesome! True friends. There is still plenty of banter between the friends and a touch of shenanigans. Of course there is a small road block, and a twist, but overall – smooth sailing.
This was a sexy and fun story to read. I have enjoyed all of the books in the Fusion series. If you have read the With Me in Seattle series (which I highly recommend) then you will enjoy this series as well!
Ah, but there is still one friend left…..Mia. And I can’t wait to read her story!

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.
During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.
Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.
Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.
