4.5 Sweet & Swoon Worthy Stars! “Are your knees feeling weak?” “They always feel weak when I’m with you.” “When you smile at me, it’s like a light has been turned on in a dark room.” “I’d do anything for that smile.” From sassy and strong women to swoon worthy alpha males, The Beauty of Us is amazing story. Told from dual points of view, The Beauty of Us follows the story of Trevor and Riley. Riley couldn’t be more thrilled over the possiblity of Seduction being featured on TV. It will be hard work and will turn everyone’s life upside down, but she just can’t turn down the opportunity of a lifetime. What she didn’t plan on was Trevor. Riley had just decided to swear off men, when Trevor appeared and turned her world upside down. Men like him are few and far between and even though Trevor is only in town for a short while, Riley can’t stay away….When Trevor originally lands in Portland, he had every intention on just keeping things all about business…that was until he met Riley. He knew he should stay away, but can’t fight the pull he feels towards her…. The Beauty of Us is a fabulous addition to the Fusion Series. I thought this book was incredibly well written and loved the story-line. The characters were fun and easy to connect with. I loved Riley as a lead. On the outside, she is strong and independent with a sassy mouth to boot. But, on the inside, she wants what every woman wants. She want to be loved and cherished and taken care of. The problem is all the men in Portland are a disgrace. But, Trevor was about to prove that there are still some good men out there. Trevor is thoughtful and pays attention. He’s hardworking and determined. And in the bedroom, he is a total alpha. He is the perfect mix of sweet and seduction. Sure, Trevor is not perfect. In fact, he had a few moments where I wanted to slap him silly, but I liked the fact that he wasn’t 100% perfect. It just drew me to him even more. The connection these two shared was just beautiful and I couldn’t get enough of Trevor’s devotion and affection for Riley. Together, these two make a scorching hot pair with chemistry that demands to be explored. The Beauty of Us was a terrific read from beginning to end. I fell in love with the characters and the story from the very first page and could not stop myself from devouring Trevor and Riley’s story. It was sweet, sinful and downright swoon worthy. The Beauty of Us had just the right amount of friendship, drama, steam and romance. A very enjoyable read that leaves you begging for more.
Kristen Proby is one of my favorite authors, she is capable of writing stories about strong sassy women with good taste in shoes and of course in men. This is the fourth book of the Fusion series about 5 friends that are co-partners in a exciting sexy restaurant in Portland, Sedution. I have read them all, Addie, Cami, Kat and now Riley... The marketing specialist of the group, always getting in trouble with dates she pick up at internet sites. She has really bad luck in dates, until she meets Trevor. He is a TV producer, slightly older, wearing geeky black trimmed glasses and a love for games and movies. Riley and Trevor are the ultimate sassy, sexy couple and their story is urban, modern and romantic. How could not love Trevor and his love for Star Wars?! This series is really great and you will love these great characters!
