Review: Listen to Me (Fusion #1) by Kristen Proby

Listen to Me 

Listen to Me (Fusion #1) by Kristen Proby

Release Date: April 12, 2016




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?




5 out of 5 stars


6 stars! This was incredible! Perfection. Loved the story and characters so much. It was entertaining, witty, and sexy. It was my first Kristen Proby book and I feel like I need to apologize to her for being late to the game because seriously, I have been missing out.


There was nothing about this I didn't enjoy. It was an absolute joy to read. At 10% I had a really good feeling. At 20% I was thinking it was pretty darn perfect and it just got better and better from there. Jake and Addie were so real to me and they had the best banter, so fun and playful. And oh man Jake, talk about a guy who gives great flirt. Totally swoon worthy! I loved Addie's wit, and how smart and determined she was. I loved the build between the two of them. Sexy and fun and flirty and hot... then really, really hot! ;-) Besides the fun and sexy, there's a lot of emotion happening as they open up. I thought they had a beautiful story.


This was just so extremely well written and developed. Loved all the characters and how they played into everything. Addie's friends and business partners each have great personalities that really shine through. Getting to know them makes me super excited for their stories. I am so completely pulled in. Those girls together are priceless! Jake’s friends were great too. Loved their interactions and the healing process Jake went enough with them for past issues. 


The end had my heart in my throat, caught up in the moment and emotion. I was in this weird place where I couldn't read it fast enough but at the same time, I didn't want it to end. It was just an amazingly well rounded story with great details and bits of whimsy throughout. 


I don't give many 6 star review but this one, right from that very first chapter, I was all in, thinking it just doesn't get better than this. But it did! Every single moment of it I was 100% invested and I completely caught up in everything. I just kept thinking to myself, this, THIS is awesome. 


Seriously, this is a MUST READ. I highly recommended it. Kristen Proby has a new fan in me. 6 stars all the way!
