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.”

Proby  first book in her new Fusion series didn’t disappoint.  There something about her writing that draws you into her work and she has been a favourite of mine but I never seem get the chance to read her books. She there always at the back of my head and this contemporary romance was the perfect way to get back into her work.

This book is the typical Proby that fans have come to now for and won’t disappoint one bit. As who doesn’t like a tattoo musican. Well that only part of the story but Jake Keller is  a book boyfriend that you want to meet in a hurry. As he is perfect and cocky.

Jake isn’t one of those broody men, he may have baggage but this man knows how to keep things light  despite the baggage. He was the perfect guy who knew how exactly to push the button although  it may have been a flaw as well. It just made him endearing as he wasn’t just after just any girl

But the it girl for him, who  isn’t fan over the fact that he is a musician. It may actually go against him as Addison has own baggage when it comes boys like Jake. She may banter with him and give him as good as serves. But she  wants to find some one  and Jake may be the answer for her.

However with baggage comes issues and Listen to Me is a fun book that has it moments that will  leave you swooning and the next moment have a grin on your face. As Proby knows how to play with our heartstrings whilst giving a fun book about five friends who own an restaurant together mash up the two to give this entertaining story.

As whilst the focus is on particularly Addison and Jake, Proby does give this book a slight chick-lit feel with the comradeship with the girlfriends. I love how they are close knit and live life to the fullest together , as family. It makes for some interesting times and I can’t wait to see where Fushion goes as this series  is perfect for those summer days or winter nights when you want some thing light and fun but with heart.
