From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby comes the second novel in her sizzling Fusion series.
Camilla, “Cami,” LaRue was five-years-old when she first fell in love with Landon Palazzo. Everyone told her the puppy love would fade—they clearly never met Landon. When he left after graduation without a backward glance, she was heartbroken. But Cami grew up, moved on, and became part-owner of wildly popular restaurant Seduction. She has everything she could want…or so she thinks.
After spending the last twelve years as a Navy fighter pilot, Landon returns to Portland to take over the family construction business. When he catches a glimpse of little Cami LaRue, he realizes she’s not so little any more. He always had a soft spot for his little sister’s best friend, but nothing is soft now when he’s around the gorgeous restauranteur.
Landon isn’t going to pass up the chance to make the girl-next-door his. She’s never been one for romance, but he’s just the one to change her mind. Will seduction be just the name of her restaurant or will Cami let him get close enough to fulfill all her fantasies?

“I get lost in you.” “But it’s the kind of lost that’s like being found.”
“I love you.” And there it is. every time she says those words, it’s as if my world is kicked off its axis and I have to catch my breath. I am one lucky son of a bitch.”
Kristen Proby is one of my go-to, automatic one-click authors. No one and I mean no one delivers sexy, swoon worthy romance quite like Kristen Proby. When you pick up one of her books, you know you are going to get an amazing read that is going to give you all the feels.
Close to You is the second book in the Fusion Series, but can totally be read as a stand-alone. Close to You is Cami and Landon’s story and is told from dual points of view. Cami has been in love with Landon for as long as she can remember, but nothing has ever come of it. Now, years later, Kate is not only a successful business woman, but also single again. Her life is exactly what she wants….that is until Landon blows back into town. Landon has always had a thing for Cami but never acted on it because she was younger than him. Now Landon has returned home and once he sees Cami again, all bets are off. They’re both grown up and nothing is going to stand in the way of making Cami his…..
I have to say, I really loved this book. It gave me sooo many feels and exceeded my expectations. Close to You is going to pull you in from the very first page and hold your heart hostage. This is a fantastic friends to lovers romance. The characters are a lot of fun and so easy to love and connect with. This story is one that is going to make you laugh, put some tears in your eyes, swoon and of course fall in love. There is some angst, but for the most part, it is just a light, romantic read.
Close to You was an enjoyable read from start to finish. This book was easily devoured in one sitting and gave me all the feels. I loved that this book was a bit more romantic and swoon worthy than Kristen Proby’s other books, but at the same time still gives you the sexy alpha male and steamy moments. And in the end, this book not only left me with a smile on my face, but has me super excited to get my hands on the next book in the Fusion Series.

“Are you packed?” my sister, Mia, asks through the phone. Her voice is husky with sleep, which makes sense since it’s the middle of the night back home in Portland, Oregon.
“I leave tomorrow, Mia. Of course I’m not packed.” She snickers. I just finished up my last debriefing meeting, my last day as an officer in the Navy. I grip the zipper of my flight uniform and sigh. “It’s not right.”
“I know,” she says quietly. “But you’re safe and whole, and you could be dead, Landon, so I’ll take it.”
I frown, staring at myself in the mirror as I unzip my uniform for the last time. I’ll never wear it again, never pilot a plane again.
What the fuck am I supposed to do now? The Navy gave me options, but if I can’t fly, there’s no sense in it. Flying isn’t just what I do, it’s who I am.
“You’re overthinking,” Mia says.
“I’m a pilot, Mia. This is what I love. It wasn’t supposed to end like this.”
“You’re alive,” she says.
“Am I?” I murmur, then shake my head and wince at the neck pain that still nags me from time to time. Ejecting from an F- 16 will cause a crick in the neck. And a loss of an inch in height that may never return, along with an entire Naval career.
Son of a bitch.
“This has been the longest four months of our lives, Landon. We’re all anxious to see you.”
“I’ll be home in a few days,” I reply as I pull a T- shirt over my head and throw the last of my belongings in a box that the Navy will have sent to me from Italy.
I loved being in Italy for the past few years, and God knows I didn’t plan to leave it like this.
But I am. Maybe Mia’s right; at least I’m alive and I can walk and live a normal life.
I just can’t fly.
And that’s what hurts more than any injury from the crash.
“What time should I come get you from the airport?”
“No need,” I reply, regretting calling my sister and waking her up. I just didn’t know what else to do when I came in here and was faced with boxes and the end of a career I love. “I’ll get there.”
“It’s okay, really. I’ll see you in a few days.”
“Be safe,” she says. “And, Landon?”
“It’s going to be okay.”
I force a grin and a nod, though she can’t see either. “Of course it is.”
We say our good- byes and I sit on the edge of the bed, scrub my hands over my face, and take a deep breath. I hope she’s right.
