Book Review + #Giveaway: "Seducing Lauren" by Kristen Proby

Author: Kristen Proby
Series: Love Under the Big Sky, #2
Publisher: Pocket Books
In the second book in the Love Under the Big Sky series from this USA TODAY bestselling author of the With Me in Seattle series, life in Montana gets spicy when a woman and her divorce lawyer sign off the papers—and sign on to love.

Now that his best friend, Josh, has happily settled down with his true love on a Montana ranch, small-town lawyer Ty Sullivan starts thinking that maybe single life isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. And when Lauren Cunningham’s no-good ex-husband comes after her for an unexpected trust fund, Ty steps in to protect her. But soon he can’t help but think of her as more than a client. Lauren’s in no mood to jump into another relationship, so how can Ty convince her that her mistake wasn’t getting married, but marrying the wrong guy?

5 Stars

At the end of Loving Cara we got a sneak peek to Seducing Lauren, and once I read it – boy, I was highly anticipating its release. I knew this book would be goooood. Sure enough, I was right. I was hooked.  Ty is hands down YUMMY and Lauren (Lo) is a very cool chick!! I loved them both as individual characters and together as a couple, even more.

“Being in love with someone is an unconditional commitment. To love someone isn’t just a feeling, it’s a decision that you make every day, no matter what happens. It’s a judgment. A promise.”

Can I just start right off by saying that I absolutely LOVE that quote??? Because I really do love it. A lot. And that’s just a glimpse of how amazing Ty Sullivan was in this book.  He was protective, caring, HOT (with tattoos to boot!), funny, sexy, and an all-round swoon-worthy guy. His love for Lauren was clear as day and I felt it.

“If something happened to you, it would kill me, Lauren.” – Ty

Lauren was honestly a very cool character; I really liked her. She was filthy rich, but incredibly down to earth, kind, caring, and quite the funny girl herself. If you’ve read book one in this series, Loving Cara, then you’ve heard of Lauren and more or less know about her, but trust me, she’s not what you think.  We got to really know her in this book. In book one she just hung out with the wrong crowd, but thankfully, she realized it and separated herself from Queen Bitch a.k.a. Misty.

Lauren and Ty were honestly a very cute couple. They brought out the best in each other and you could tell their feelings were pure. The sex was HOT. Kristen Proby sure knows how to steam up the pages! Wowza! And the way Ty treated Lo? Swoon!!! The meals!!! My heart melted each and every time he proved to her that he paid attention to details. I mean, life is all about ‘the little things’ and Ty had that down to a T.

“Having you in my life and choosing to be your friend is the best thing I ever did. But falling in love with you has been effortless.”

All in all, this book was well written and had me fully engrossed from beginning to end. You know that feeling while you’re reading where you just know something is going to happen? Yep. That’s how this book was for me the whole time. I was antsy and slightly nervous because I knew shit was bound to hit the fan sooner or later. And boy, did it ever. At this point I simply could not read fast enough. I honestly loved this book. It flowed smoothly, the characters developed perfectly, and the plot kept me 100% intrigued.

Kristen Proby never fails to deliver a must read! If you’re in the mood for a sexy and great book, I highly recommend you read Seducing Lauren. Five wonderful stars!

“He is my solace. He is my home.” – Lauren

Series: Love Under the Big Sky, #1
In this new Love Under the Big Sky series from a USA TODAY bestselling author, Cara agrees to tutor her former classmate's nephew—and learns some lessons in love!

Josh King is an expert at running his family’s multi-million dollar ranch in Montana. (And all that outside manual labor has done wonders for sculpting his six-foot-three body, too.) But as sure footed as he is when it comes to the ranch, Josh doesn’t know anything about how to deal with an adolescent boy—so when his twelve-year-old nephew, Seth, is dropped off on his doorstep, looking scared and acting surly as hell, Josh knows he needs help in straightening him out.

Cara Donovan loves her quiet life as a teacher in her sleepy hometown, so she jumps at the chance to make a little money over the summer as a tutor. But when she learns she’ll be teaching Josh King’s nephew, Cara’s sweet summer job gets a little bit hotter. Cara tries to focus all her attention on tutoring Seth, but Josh proves to be a delicious distraction, while Josh’s memories of the shy girl he once teased in high school are nothing like the beautiful woman he’s facing now. Can he persuade her that there’s more between them than a summer fling?
