5 star review by Allison East

I am never disappointed when I read one of Kristen Proby's books. I take that back. When they are over,  that's what disappoints me. The With Me In Seattle series is probably one of my favorite series of books, so I knew that the Loving Under the Big Sky series had some big shoes to fill. I knew the Montgomery's I was quite close with them.  And my love for Nate and Jules is hands down one of my favorite stories to date. I still recommend reading that book when people ask for a steamy love story- period.  And while Loving Cara was super fantastical- I could not wait to get my hands on Seducing Lauren, but most of all, Ty.

We meet another "family" of characters in this series, so I was already introduced to Lauren and Ty, and I couldn't wait to find out more- and I can tell you I was more than pleasantly surprised. It had all the goods. Sexy, hot alpha male, check. Strong and sassy female, double check. Hot as hell sex scenes, don't you know who we are talking about here? Its Kristen Freaking Proby, Queen of the Sex Scene. But not only were the "superficial" things on point- so was the development of the story, the believability of the main characters relationship, the plot was fantastic, and my favorite part- the epilogue. Brilliant.

Lauren Cunningham just got served by her bozo ex-husband over a trust fund that is rightfully hers, and she ends up taking the matter to her lawyers office, which happens to be
the same place where Ty Sullivan is a lawyer! He declines to help her out, upon her request to switch- because of a conflict of interest. Little does Lo know- it's because Ty has been biding his time all these years waiting until she was a single woman to move in for the taking!

Ty wants nothing more than to see Lauren happy- and if that means taking out her creepy ex, Jack, that's just what he will do. He is super protective, super alpha, and all around
steamy sensational. I loved Ty sooooo much, I wish I could give him my heart- but it still belongs to Nate- even though Ty is my second favorite Proby Hero!

It had the perfect amount of everything and it is shaping up to be my number 2 Proby book behind Fight with Me, obviously. It's not very often an author can hold my attention and keep it, Kristen successfully manages to write fantastic books that I want and crave, I am never bored, and I am usually a little sad when they end. But I always trust her to one up herself from the last time- so I have nothing but high hopes for the conclusion to this series. Buy this book, you won't regret it!

As I approach his house, I see his Jeep parked in the drive, the hood up, and a tight, jean-clad ass bent over the side. Okay, he’s definitely home. I tentatively wander around the other side of the Jeep and lean against the side, looking at the engine. He hasn’t noticed that I’m here yet, and I’m not even sure how he’ll react to seeing me here, but I can’t seem to stay away. His dark head is bent low, his arms buried in the engine, tinkering with something. His arms are bare as he’s pulled off his T-shirt, which is draped over the windshield. A thin sheen of sweat covers his shoulders and back, and his entire sleeve tattoo, which runs from just above his wrist all the way up to the top of his right shoulder, is on full display, making my girlie parts all tingle and come to life. Holy Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. He’s so fucking toned it’s crazy. Jeez, his muscles bunch and stretch as he pulls on the wrench in his hand. “Come on, you motherfucker,” he mutters. I have to bite my lips to keep from laughing out loud. “So, what seems to be the problem?” I finally ask when he doesn’t notice me, keeping my eyes trained on the engine when his head whips up to look at me. I slowly lift my eyes to his and grin. “I didn’t hear your car,” he murmurs with a smile. “I walked.” I shrug and look back down into the bowels of his Jeep. “What’s wrong with your car?” “You walked from your house?” he asks incredulously. “No.” I shake my head and chuckle. “From Sips. I had coffee with Cara this morning.” He stands up straight and leans his palms on the side of the Jeep, watching me. My eyes immediately fall to one drop of sweat slowly making its way down his hard chest. “You had coffee with Cara?” He smiles. “Yeah.” I shrug shyly. “I’m sorry to just stop by like this. I was out for a walk and just sort of found myself here.” I feel my cheeks heat and I back away, but he shakes his head and smiles widely. “I’m glad you came by.” He raises his brows as I continue to stare. I shake my head and raise my eyes to his, then bust out laughing. “Why are you laughing?” he asks with a wide grin. “Because I don’t think I’ve ever seen you without a shirt. I didn’t realize the tats went all the way up your arm. Who would have thought that under it all you’re just a bad boy?” His eyes flash with heat as he narrows them on my face, watching me. He pulls a rag out of his back pocket and begins wiping off his hands, but his gray eyes stay on mine. Did I offend him? “I’m not such a bad boy. Looks can be deceiving, Lauren.” He smirks as he lowers the hood on his Jeep. “But from the look of you right now, you don’t seem to mind the tats.” “I don’t mind.” I shrug nonchalantly and try to ignore the way my heart picks up speed as he slowly saunters around the hood of the vehicle. “Do you have any tats?” “Yeah.” His eyes widen in surprise and then rake over me from head to toe. “Where?” I grin, enjoying this flirtatious banter. “Here and there.” “I have ways of making people talk, you know.” “Bright lights and rubber hoses?” I ask with a raised brow. He tosses his head back and laughs, an all-out belly laugh. “I’m not a cop,” he smirks. “You might get to see them. Someday.” He closes the gap between us and kisses me gently on the forehead, not touching me anywhere else. “I hope someday comes sooner rather than later,” he whispers before pulling back and smiling softly down at me. “I would hug you, but I’m dirty.” I wave him off, as if it’s no biggie, although I don’t mind so much that he’s a bit dirty and sweaty. “What were you doing?” I gesture to the car. “Changing the oil.” “There are places you can go,” I inform him with a perfectly straight face, “where you pull into this big garage, and then you leave your car and go into this small room with five-year-old magazines and stale coffee, and the people there will change your oil for you.” “Or, smart-ass, I can do it myself in my own driveway.” “Suit yourself.” I shrug. “Did you sleep okay on the couch?” he asks, changing the subject. “Yeah, actually, I did. But I could always sleep just about anywhere.” “Hence the chaise in your office.” He chuckles. I nod and stuff my hands in my pockets. “I’m sorry that I interrupted your morning. I was just out for a walk and found myself here.” “I’m glad you did.” He scratches his stomach, and my eyes follow the movement. His abs are just delicious. For being so dark haired, he has little hair on his chest and stomach, but a light trail of hair falls from his navel and disappears into his jeans. He’s also sporting a V in the muscles on his hips that the heroes in my novels would covet. “Lo?” he asks with a wide grin. “Yeah?” I drag my eyes up to his again. “I lost you for a second.” I blink rapidly and feel heat fill my cheeks. Jesus, get a grip! You’ve seen hot men before, Lauren. “Sorry, my mind wandered.”
