The Beauty of Us by Kristen Proby – Review

reviewThe Beauty of Us

Synopsis

Riley Gibson is over the moon at the prospect of having her restaurant, Seduction, on the Best Bites TV network. This could be the big break she’s been waiting for. But the idea of having an in-house show on a regular basis is a whole other matter. Their lives would be turned upside down, and convincing Mia, her best friend and head chef of Seduction, that having cameras in her kitchen every day is a good idea is daunting. Still, Riley knows it’s an opportunity she can’t afford to pass on. And when she meets Trevor Cooper, the show’s executive producer, she’s stunned by their intense chemistry.

Trevor’s sole intention is to persuade Riley to allow Best Bites TV to do a show on her restaurant. But when he walks into Riley’s office, he stops dead in his tracks. The professional, aloof woman on the phone is incredibly beautiful and funny. But can he convince her that he’s interested in Riley for himself? Or is he using the undeniable pull between them to persuade her to agree to his offer?

My Thoughts

I loved this beautiful amazing book. it was in many ways like our heroine, Riley. it was strong, confident, smart, sweet, sexy, funny and genuinely fun to be around. my favorite part of this book though is Riley stating again and again that she doesn’t do drama. Every time drama came to her door, she was like nope. it was amazing and refreshing to read such an adult attitude. Even the story didn’t contain much excess drama or when it did it was handled maturely and calmly. I loved how Riley took charge of her life and was a strong woman with a strong group of women supporting her. The group dynamics are always one of my favorite parts of a Kristen Proby book and this was no exception. The women shine in this series and the men support and love and don’t have to step in and take over. it is a wonderful, beautiful healthy dynamic that she has created and it is what keeps me coming back each and every time.
I highly recommend this book for a light but amazing read. Each character shines in their own way and make each book better than the last.

About the Author

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.
