From New York Times Bestselling author Kristen Proby, comes a steamy new standalone romance in her bestselling Fusion Series…
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…?

Where to start with this review because I have so much to say. First off Blush for Me was amazing and just so great. Second, this is the second book I’ve read by Kristen Proby and the first one was a short story. I am totally kicking myself for not reading this amazing authors books sooner. Just beyond amazing.
Katrina hates flying but she wanted to go on this trip to these vineyards. She ends up almost having a panic attack while Ryan aka Mac helps her calm down. Kat never thinks she’ll see Mac again but surprise he’s actually at the conference for the same reasons Kat is. So, Kat insists on a sexcation type deal where because they’re on vacation and will probably never see each other again and neither are looking for anything serious they get it on for the week they’re together. Well soon feelings become a thing even in their short time together and they’re so cute, but sadly vacations always end. So, they fly back home and Mac decides he needs Kat in his life so he shows up at her work and they begin seeing each other.
I loved Mac and Kat. For one they both push each other and they both realize while being together that they haven’t really focused a whole lot on themselves and instead focused on working hard and being perfect at work. Kristen Proby does an amazing job making sure that these two have a realistic relationship with dates, arguments, and character quirks. These characters aren’t perfect, they have their own personal crap that goes on, but it’s cute and it’s real and I loved it.
Kat is a total bada**. She doesn’t take crap from anyone. She ends up defending one of her friends and punches someone in the face. I just loved her. Mac is so cute too. He kind of struggles a little bit with Kat because while she submits to him during sexy times Kat doesn’t allow him to kind of dominate her any other time. Not that he’s a controlling dick he’s just used to getting what he wants all the time. I thought these two characters were so awesome. Like I have said before in other reviews, I love when characters are realistic and when they are relatable. I could not put this book down and it had so much to do with these characters and amazing writing that went with this story.
Wrapping up everything in case you missed it, this story was great. The whole package of writing, story line, surprises, plot twists, and characters were fantastic. I will definitely be adding Kristen Proby to my list of have to read authors if that tells you how good this book is.
Time flies when you’re having fun. It’s an old cliché, but I never realized just how true it is until this week. It’s flown by, touring vineyards and sitting in on classes during the day, and going to bed with Mac every night.
The man can fuck like nobody’s business, bless him.
But now it’s our last day together. I’m not silly enough to think that we’ve fallen in love this week. I won’t pine for him after we leave here like a lovesick teenager.
But I will remember him fondly, and the amazing week we spent together in wine country. I guess it is rather romantic, even though a sexcation is anything but romantic.
“We’re here,” Mac whispers in my ear as the bus pulls up to our final vineyard for the week.
“Where were you just now?” he asks and drags his hand up and down my thigh. He makes me want to purr. The things this man can do with his hands should come with a warning label.
“I’m right here,” I reply.
“No, you were somewhere far away,” he murmurs.
“Just thinking about all the things I have to do when I get home,” I lie easily with a smile as we all file off the bus.
I’m not drinking much today. I’ve been beyond tipsy every day by the time we made our way back to the hotel, and while it’s been fun, I’m feeling the effects of too much alcohol.
I may not be over the crazy sex with Mac, but I’m quite over the wine, and that’s a sentence I never thought I’d say in my life.
“You’re far away again,” Mac says, smiling down at me and holding a wine glass out for me to take.
“Sorry.” I shrug. “It’s been an eventful week.”
His green eyes flare in lust. “Indeed it has.”
