No Reservations – Kristen Proby – Review & Excerpt Tour

No Reservations is the perfect addition to this series! It’s short, sexy, and has two great main characters who know what they want and don’t apologize for being themselves. I’m a huge Kristen Proby fan and this type of book is exactly why. I loved it!

Here’s the breakdown:

Chase and Maura are setup on a blind date by his brother and her friend. But…..they have past history. Chase has asked her out a couple times and she’s always refused. But when a few glasses of wine and a late night ride home lead to more, these two must deal with their undeniable attraction and past history. What happens later is fun to see and enjoyable to read.

What I loved:

The characters are great, but they’re also a bit unconventional. I won’t go into much detail because I want you to read this one for yourself, but it refreshing to see. In real life, every person and relationship is different and to see those variances included in a book like this was really great.

The writing and plot are both great, but the real shining star for me was the sexual chemistry and steamy bits between the main characters. They were off the charts scalding! LOL

I adore Kristen’s book and this is a great addition. It’s best to read it as a part of the series so you get a sense of who everyone is, but I think this works very well as a standalone.

Highly recommended!


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.

Definitely not.

Well, maybe just once…

Just then, I hear heels clicking on the hardwood of the outer entrance, and then Maura pokes her blonde head around the doorjamb.

“Hi.” She grins and walks into my office. She’s in heels, but rather than a sexy outfit, she’s as demure as can be in a long skirt and white button-down shirt.

Jesus, she’s in full-on teacher mode. I was never this attracted to any teacher I’ve ever known.

“Hello.” I clear my throat and think twice about standing from behind my desk. I’m already so hard I’m throbbing, and I haven’t even touched her. Saying I’m attracted to Maura is a steep understatement. I’d f*ck her every day of the week without even thinking twice.

And now that she’s in my office and the chemistry is sizzling between us, I want to boost her up on my desk and bury myself balls-deep inside her.

“Are you just going to stare at me or are you going to hand over my underwear?” She bites her lip and tilts her head to the side. Her blonde hair falls over her shoulder, her blue eyes are smiling at me, and just like that, my mind is made up.

“I enjoy looking at you,” I reply and stand, circle my desk and grin when her eyes widen as I approach her. “You’re a beautiful woman, Maura.”

“Thanks,” she says and swallows hard. “I’m sure you’re busy, so I’ll just collect my things and go.”

“I like this look on you,” I say and tug gently on a golden strand of hair. “Do you always dress so demurely for school?”

“I teach fifth graders, Chase. What would you have me wear, miniskirts and crop tops?”

“I’d prefer you save those for a more private setting,” I reply and lean in to kiss her cheek. She doesn’t pull away. My hand settles on her hip, my fingertips gripping her ass. “I like looking at you like this,” I whisper into her ear. “I want to mess you up.”

“We said we weren’t going to do this again,” she reminds me, but the words are weak, and her hand glides up my chest to the knot in my tie. “We pinky swore.”

“It’s only us here.” I kiss her ear. “No one will know that we broke that pinky promise.”

“I’ll know.”

My hand glides up her side as she loosens my tie.

“Are you going to sweep everything off of your desk and f*ck me here?”

Kristen Proby was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.

  1. I loved Kristen Proby’s writing and I love her Fusion series but sadly I didn’t like this novella very much, I feel like it was a little but of a let down for me, but I’m so glade that you liked it.

      1. I’ve read most of her books, a majority of her books I read in the past few weeks. I’m currently in the middle of her Love Under the Big Sky trilogy, but I have been unable to read book two until either later this month or in January, it depends if I get amazon gift card’s for Christmas.
