About NO RESERVATIONS:
New York Times Bestselling author Kristen Proby takes us back to her highly acclaimed Fusion series.
Chase MacKenzie is not the man for Maura Jenkins. A self-proclaimed life-long bachelor, and unapologetic about his distaste for monogamy, a woman would have to be a masochist to want to fall into Chase’s bed.
And Maura is no masochist.
Chase has one strict rule: no strings attached. Which is fine with Maura because she doesn’t even really like Chase. He’s arrogant, cocky, and let’s not forget bossy. But when he aims that crooked grin at her, she goes weak in the knees. Not that she has any intentions of falling for his charms.
Well, maybe just once…

I also liked another thing you find out about both of them one night by a fire. I will not give it away as that would be a spoiler, but I loved it and I loved that they were each accepting of the other, and of the way they felt. That is how it should be, and this really made me connect both with the characters and the story.
Kristen Proby is a favorite of mine as there is always something about her books, and her writing, that draws me in quickly and holds on to me for the entire story. The main criticism I have of this story is that it was short, as it was a novella, and I would have been just fine spending more time with these characters.
I recommend this title.
“Why do you ask?”
“Because you’re intense, as if you’re angry.”
“I was worried.” He sighs and tips his forehead to mine. “I’m not used to being worried. I’m not used to feeling invested. You could have been hurt today, and I hated the thought of it.”
“I wasn’t hurt.” I let my hands rub up and down his sides soothingly. I haven’t felt the need to soothe someone in a long time. “Thank you for coming to my rescue.”
His lips twitch just before he plants them on my forehead, then he pulls back to look down at me. “I want you. I know you said yesterday that you don’t want sex, so if the answer is still no, I’ll go.”
I frown. I’ve been thinking about what he said all last night when I couldn’t sleep and today when I had a free moment. He’s not the playboy that I’ve thought he is. But I still don’t want something permanent.
Or maybe I do, and that’s the problem.
Hell, I’m confused.
“Please don’t say no,” he whispers, and I look up to find him smiling down at me. His eyes lower to my lips and narrow when I bite them, and I know the answer.
I knew the answer the second he walked up to my car.
“I don’t want you to go.” It’s not a whisper; it’s as clear as day. But rather than push me up against the wall or lead me to the bedroom, he steps back, not touching me at all, and taps his forefinger on his lips, thinking.
“Take your clothes off.”
I blink rapidly and glance around. “My blinds are open.”
“No one can see in here,” he says and waits patiently, and for the first time in a very long time, I’m shy.
He makes me freaking shy.
And we can’t have that. So I raise my chin and grin, happy that I chose the wrap dress that I did today. I reach to the side and pull the string, untying it, and then let it fall in a heap around my feet.
