BLUSH FOR ME!
About 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’re going to have a great time.” She hugs me close. “There are lots of signs and people to ask if you get lost in there, but it’s not a big airport, so you should be fine. Call me when you get there.”“If I get there,” I say and sigh deeply. “Why do I feel like I’m never going to see you again?”“Because you’re being dramatic,” she replies and smiles brightly. “Have fun!”And with that, she waves and drives away and I’m left alone to figure out this airport hell.But Riley was right. Checking in and dropping my bag off is easy. Finding security is easy.Getting frisked by the TSA guy would have been more fun if he’d looked like Charlie Hunnam, but then again, everything would be more fun with Charlie.I follow the signs, find my gate, and am pleasantly surprised to find a bar directly across from it.There is a god.But once at the bar, I’m just too nervous to drink.That’s a first.Who in the hell gets too nervous to drink? This girl, apparently.So I wander back to the gate and pace, dragging my small black hard-sided suitcase with red cherries on it behind me. People glance my way, but I ignore them. I’m used to it. You don’t dress the way I do, covered in sleeve tattoos, and not get looks.Finally, my flight is called and they begin boarding. Before I know it, I’m sitting on the plane, three rows from the front—if I’m going to die, it’s going to be in first class—in the aisle seat.“Hello,” the man next to me says. I glance his way, taking in his light brown hair and green eyes, and if we were anywhere but here, I would totally flirt with him.But we’re on a motherfucking airplane.“Hi,” I reply and swallow hard. The flight attendant asks us if we’d like anything to drink before we take off, but I shake my head no and stare at the pilot sitting in the cock pit. “Don’t they close that door?”“Right before we take off,” my travel companion says. I’m surprised that I spoke aloud. “Hey, are you okay?”“Fine.”He’s silent for a moment and I keep staring at the pilot. I want to march up there and tell him to make sure that we get there in one piece. What are his credentials, anyway? I want to see his license, and a few letters of recommendation wouldn’t hurt either.“I’m Mac.” I slide my eyes to him and nod, then whip my gaze back to the front.“Kat.”

My Blush For Me Review . . .
Kristen Proby was one of the first authors I read when I jumped into my love for the romance genre. And throughout the years, she has given us so many great, sweet stories about love, hope and second chances.
In the Fusion series, it focuses on 5 best friends, whom happen to own a restaurant together. Jake and Addison were the first book in Listen To Me. And Cami and Landon followed in book 2, Close to You. Here, we get the feisty Kat and loveable Mac. And now that I'm hooked onto this series I can't wait for Riley and Mia's stories.
Kat's an outgoing, loud and bright person but she secretly wears her heart on her sleeve. Now immersed in her wine bar she has little time to date. After a strong push from her friends she finds her self on her first plane ride, scared out of her mind. The only thing that kept her going on this trip was the idea of a sexcation. So, when the lovely charming Mac sits next to her on the plane and helps her throughout the flight, the last thing she expected was for him to be her sexy companion for her sexcation.
Mac's on board for a sexcation but the more he gets to know Kat the more he wants. Unfortunately Kat keeps the first union at arms lengths. But that doesn't stop him from wanting more from her. For the most part I liked Kat but I didn't totally love all her conversations to herself, nor her game playing with Mac at the beginning. She tells him she doesn't want anything further but is annoyed he didn't try and find her. Even though she gave Mac no information about herself.
But since Mac was taken with her, he found a way to get her to see him again. The thing about this series that I love is the sisterhood of the friends/partnerships. They're all so loyal and loving to one another and always have each others backs.
"Well, I don't plan to be an ass, but I'm a man, and sometimes we're assess without meaning to be."
Mac makes his play but he has many friends to convince that he's worth the risk. I did like Mac and Kat's chemistry and I also liked the fact that I thought it was going to be a predictable story line but it was a pleasant surprise that it wasn't filled with tons of unnecessary angst.
