"Listen to Me is a phenomenal start to a new series that will hook the readers to the point of no return." -Fiction Fangirls
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?
"The story is fresh, the characters are hot, the chemistry between Jake and Addison is through the roof, and the picture that Ms. Proby paints is vivid and energetic." -Literati Literature Lover
Listen To Me is the first book in the Fusion Series.I would give it a 4.5 stars and highly recommend to others.
I love every book that Kristen Proby writes and this one is no different it was great!
This author brings her characters to life in her stories and makes you feel like you are living what they are experiencing.
Addison and her 4 best friends open up a sexy club called Seduction... each have there own specialty in the business and Addy's is the front area, so she is determined to make it better and what better way than to have a live singer/band...
Jake Keller (Knox) used to be a famous rock star... but a tragedy happened and his life changed forever... he misses the music the feel of the audience singing along with him to songs... but he doesn't want the spotlight he wants simple and what better way than to do something simple like sing at a club....
Neither will expect the sparks and the chemistry that will flow from there pours when they meet... but the past has a way of creeping in and making the doubts they already harbor even stronger.. can they make it more than just casual?
Get to one clickin this great story... and I am hoping the next book is about Cami and Landon! Thanks for a great story and I look forward to much more in the future!
Addison is a co-owner with five other women of a new, trendy sexy restaurant in Portland. Each of the five girls have a different area that they specialize and bring to the table making this restaurant widely popular. Addison is on the hunt for a live act... a singer to perform on Friday and Saturday nights. Nothing loud but something that melds with the ambiance and vibe they have going.
Jake Keller used to be a famous rockstar and hasn't performed in over five years. He gets the itch to perform but not like he used to; he wants something more intimate. Upon hearing about Seductions job opening he applies.
Addison recognizes him immediately and wants nothing to do with his bad boy image/persona. But Jake has changed over the past fiver years.
Both harbor hurts from the past that make them hesitant to have more than an employee/employer relationship. But Jake slowly dismantles Addies untrusting walls.... I loved the sass and wit of their tête–à–têtes.

It’s quiet in here now, and the silence is too loud. He’s staring down at his drink, his eyes a deep green in the low light of the bar. A crease forms between his eyebrows in a frown, and then he shakes his head, just a tiny bit. Jake sips his drink, and I can’t help but wonder what he’s thinking.
And I’m a woman, so I ask.
Because who ever heeded the whole, don’t ask the question if you don’t want the answer warning?
“What are you thinking?” I ask softly.
He chuckles and shakes his head.
“You don’t want to know.”
He swivels in the stool, facing me, and rests his hand on the arm of my own stool, leaning into me, and it takes everything in me not to back away. His eyes lower to my lips.
I lick them, and watch his eyes dilate.
This is a very bad idea.
I swallow hard as he continues to watch my mouth.
“It’s quiet in here,” he says evenly.
“I was thinking the same.”
“Are you comfortable in the quiet, Addie?”
I frown and feel my nipples pucker when he reaches up and tucks my hair behind my ear. His fingers are warm.
And when he’s this close, I can’t help but breathe him in and enjoy the scent of him.
“Why shouldn’t I be?”
“Some aren’t. Some need chaos, noise. The quiet makes them nervous.”
You make me nervous.
I lick my lips again.
“I don’t mind quiet. You?”
“I love the quiet.”
I smirk. “You’re a musician.”
“And I love music too. But the quiet is where the truth lives.”
I blink once, twice.
“Where the truth lives?” I’m whispering now.
He simply nods. “There’s no distraction. No way to deny what is. It’s honest.”
“And you claim to be honest?”
“To a fault,” he confirms. “I’d also love to hear more about this sexcation you’re scheming.”
I feel my cheeks flush and turn away, taking another sip of my wine.“I was simply being silly with my friends, Jake. Drop it.”
He doesn’t answer. Damn the fucking quiet.
