“BLUSH FOR ME is my favorite book in this series, and quite possibly my favorite Kristen Proby book I’ve read to date.”

What can I say? I’m a sucker for a hot rockabilly chick! I knew from the start that I would enjoy this book. There’s something about Kat’s personality that I really wanted to explore more and when we first see the setup of the romance being a hot fling at a wine convention that she attends for work, I was sold.
Kat is quite confident (except when she has to fly) and has no problem going for what she wants. Whether that’s just a fling with Mac, or realizing she wants to explore more later on. I loved that these two didn’t reallly fight about their attraction and got caught up in their ideas that they weren’t looking for a relationship. They just went with the flow of how things developed and I was so thankful the author didn’t bog this down with unnecessary tension from that. They have great chemistry that sparks from their very first, and maybe awkward, meeting. So cute together!
I continue to love the friendships and the bonds between all the characters that series is exploring. We don’t just forget about previous couples and this book did a great job at teasing at what’s to come and also keeping us up to date with past couples while introducing the new love interest. I thought that was done really nicely.
This is also not the most complicated plot, but it made the book really easy and fast to read. A one sitting book for sure. There’s a small element of suspense that I saw coming from a mile away and I think that could’ve been done a bit more exciting to spark up something else in the story. But overall this is very character driven and not overly complicated. Just sweet sexy fun. It hit the spot for what I was looking to read on a cold winter morning!
BLUSH FOR ME is my favorite book in this series, and quite possibly my favorite Kristen Proby book I’ve read to date. I can’t wait to see more of the women of Seduction meet their men. I’m beyond excited about Mia’s book.
“You look like you’re feeling better.”
Mac. That’s Mac’s voice in my ear. A shiver runs through me as I turn around and look up, way up, into his green eyes.
“I am,” I reply and take a sip of my wine. Was he that good looking on the plane? “I didn’t realize you were attending this conference.”
“You had other things on your mind earlier,” he says smoothly and motions for the bartender. “I’ll have what she’s having, and another for her as well.”
“What if you don’t like pinot?” I ask and tilt my head to the side.
“I like it all,” he says with a wink.
“Do you know many people here?” he asks, nodding toward Sally who has moved on to chat with another group of people.
“A few. I’ve not met most of them in person, unless they were up in Washington or Oregon. How about you?”
“Same,” he says with a grin. “This is my first conference down in Napa Valley. And it’s off to a great start.”
“Right.” I laugh and shake my head. “Dealing with a crazy chick on the plane is exactly the best way to start your trip.”
“It is,” he says and looks me dead in the eye. “She wasn’t that crazy. She was scared. There’s a difference.”
“Well, she’s fine now.”
“I’m glad.” His lips tip up into a smile and my stomach clenches. He has a dimple in his left cheek.
I want to lick it.
I take a sip of my fresh glass of wine and smirk to myself. Perhaps Mac fits the sexcation bill.
“What just went through that gorgeous head of yours?”
“I’m not drunk enough to tell you yet,” I reply honestly. Mac’s eyes widen briefly, and then he simply smiles at me.
“There’s a lot of wine in this place.”
“Thank God for that.”
A few hours later, after chatting with many people, new and those I already know, including Mac, he escorts me up to my room.
But when we reach my door, he leans in and kisses my cheek. Just the cheek. I frown up at him.
“This is supposed to be a sexcation, not a fucking dating game.” It’s a grumble, but I’m shocked to hear it actually leave my lips, rather than stay in my head where it’s supposed to be.
“A what?” Mac asks.
“Nothing.” I shake my head and pull my key card out of my handbag. “Good night.”
“Yeah.” I look back at him and sigh a little at the sexy dimple in his cheek and the way his shirt pulls against his shoulders as he leans on the doorframe.
“I’ll see you in the morning.”
“It’s already morning,” I remind him.
“It won’t be too long, then.”

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
