CLOSE TO YOU - cover

 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?


There was no sophomore jinx here. Absolutely another homerun with this sequel. This is definitely a series I will keep up with!

In Book 1, we learned that Camilla “Cami” LaRue was in love with her best friend Mia Palazzo’s brother Landon. He was a navy fighter pilot and flying around the world so Mia gave up hope that they could ever be more.
In this Book 2, Landon has returned home to Portland after suffering a career ending injury. While Landon’s feeling adrift about his career, his feeling for Cami have never been more stable. The time is right, and thus Landon is ready to claim the only girl he has ever loved.

What I valued about this story was the simplicity in theme, yet richness in character. The trope ~Girl falls for best friend’s brother is so common. Yet the author Kristen Proby wove a sweet yet engaging story about romance as well as friendships. It was so nice to read a book with a straight up love story that was uninterrupted by lame misunderstandings. Add this one to that rare group of adult romances without a manufactured conflict. Landon was the guy we thought he was, standup, loyal and loving. Cami was also the same girl from book 1, supportive, funny and giving. Landon and Cami had excellent chemistry yet their sex scenes didn’t over power their romantic journey. I adored them together.

The author did a great job weaving in the subplot of the friendship between the women. I am interested in the rest of the ladies and their respective love lives. Each character was appealing as they were so supportive of each other. It reminded me of the Sex and the City girls. It made me smile a lot. It is a sign of great writing when an author takes a popular concept but still makes it enjoyable to the reader.
I liked this book a lot and look forward to continuing the series.
