Listen To Me by Kristen Proby – 5 star Review

Listen To Me


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 Stars

This is my favorite Kristen Proby book yet. This book had all the things I love about her writing and even more. And I’m pretty sure Jake Keller has just replaced Leo Nash as my favorite rocker. This doesn’t come out until April, but I’m sure I will re-read a few times before then. EDIT: I have now read this 3 times and I still can’t put into words how much I loved this book.

My Thoughts

Jake Keller is by far my favorite Kristen Proby character, but Addison comes in a close second. One of my favorite parts of a Kristen Proby story is the close knit groups and their relationships with each other. I am looking forward to seeing a lot more from the Seduction family and the amazing strong women she has created.

I have now read this book 3 times since it was released and I am still at a loss for words. I loved every aspect of this book so much I can’t decide where to start and how to convey my overwhelming love for this book. I’ll leave it to I wholeheartedly recommend you pick up this book. It has all the swoons, all the banter and all the steam you would expect from a Kristen Proby novel and then some.

Notable Quotes

“You have no idea how fast my heart races when I look at you,” I whisper, my lips mere inches from hers. “You turn me inside out, Addison.”

I love music too. But the quiet is where the truth lives.

“Having feelings fucking sucks,” Kat mutters with a shake of the head. “Especially when it comes to men, because when we care, we give them the power to stomp our hearts into dust.”

“I fell so hard for him! Most of the time I don’t give any fucks. Not one. But this time I gave a lot of fucks,” I say to Cami, who nods with wide eyes. “I gave lots of fucks, Cam. I’m a prostitute of feelings.”

“You showed me what I need in a woman, Addison. I need someone who calls me out on my bullshit. I need someone who sees the fire in my eyes and wants to play with it, not try to extinguish it. I need someone who challenges me; in the bedroom, in my career, in my crazy head. And you know what? I found all of that in you.” 

“Addie, I can’t promise you that there won’t be times I fuck up or that things won’t ever feel broken.” His voice is a shaky whisper, his mouth planted against my temple. “But I can promise you that I will never walk away from us.”
Not me. Us.
I hug him tighter as tears form at the corners of my eyes. “That’s the best promise you can make.”
