In New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby’s brand new series, five best friends open a hot new restaurant, but one of them gets much more than she bargained for when a sexy former rock star walks through the doors—and into her heart.

Seduction is quickly becoming the hottest new restaurant in Portland, and Addison Wade is proud to claim 1/5 of the credit. She’s determined to make it a success and can’t think of a better way to bring in new customers than live music. But when former rock star Jake Keller swaggers through the doors to apply for the weekend gig, she knows she’s in trouble. Addie instantly recognizes him—his posters were plastered all over her bedroom walls in high school—he’s all bad boy...exactly her type and exactly what she doesn’t need.

Jake Keller walked away from the limelight five years ago and yearns to return to what’s always driven him: the music. If he gets to work for a smart-mouthed, funny-as-hell bombshell, all the better. But talking Addie into giving him the job is far easier than persuading her that he wants more than a romp in her bed. Just when she begins to drop her walls, Jake’s past finally catches up with him.

Will Addie be torn apart once again or will Jake be able to convince her to drown out her doubts and listen to her heart?

Listen To Me is the first book in a new series and she nailed it. The dialog is witty. The friendship are great and reminded me of me and my girlfriends. I liked the fast pace. I've read all of Kristen Proby's books and am never disappointed.

## HOLY MOLY. This book was fan-freaking-tastic. I loved this 1st book of this new series. How the hell does Kristen knock it out of the park every time? No clue, but man I'm glad that she does. I love that she writes her heroines as beautiful, successful, fun-loving women. Nothing worse than a weak, doormat of a woman. And thank you Ms. Proby for letting Addie be gorgeous AND capable. She had tremendous chemistry with the hero, who btw was HOT HOT HOT. While I'm gushing, let me not forget to mention that there is no instant forgiveness! Yay me. So much more satisfying that way. If you haven't read Ms. Proby's other books, you are missing out. I can recommend Come away with me, Fight with me, Falling for Jillian, Easy Kisses, Easy Love, Loving Cara, Play with me...Omg, there are too many, just buy them all.

Jake and Addison may be the best couple I have ever read about... Jake is clearly the Hunk of the Year!! Excellent start to the series and loved Addies girlfriends whose books will surely follow... Addie owns a restaurant called Seduction with her friends and Jake is a semi retired rock star.. Each has baggage which adds to the story but this is a book that is well written and keeps you reading... I loved it and am already on Book Two which is also a winner,...

I'd already read the latest book in this series. It's like I started at the end. But I'd wanted to start this series from the moment I first saw the cover of this one. Jumping back into the series like this was fun, because I kind of was familiar with at least one of the characters, even though I feel like she said something at the beginning that didn't match up with something I seem to remember her saying in her own book. You probably saw me mention above how much I love Sebastian York's voice, and I did enjoy listening to it. However, I don't feel like his voice fits that of a singer's voice. Just my opinion, probably I'm wrong, but I was still okay listening to him. I liked the line about having an observation deck at a gym to enjoy the hotties. I can even think of one romance book cover model that I already enjoy the pictures he shares of himself working out. How do I get a ticket to his gym? And what dropped this to 4 stars for me was just that both of them pulled stupid reasons for fighting at the end. And that made me mad. I get it, I get it, drama needed, but still, it always annoys me to fall back on those. But before you get me wrong, I still really enjoyed it, and can't wait to read more in the series. I'm especially looking forward to the book with Cami and Landon, Mia's brother.

Would have given 5 stars, until the end. Got WAY too unbelievable and ridiculously mushy. I may have (I did) rolled my eyes a few times... BUT before then, I couldn't put the book down. It was interesting and had a great plotline. I'm now moving right on to Cami.

Charming! I loved the five friends who opened a very successful restaurant/bar. Our Heroine was a real woman with not only beauty but issues, just like our hero. I can't wait to read book two and I already have book 3 on pre-order.

Once again, Kristen Proby has created a setting in which fabulous women - all smart and successful - find themselves with incredibly sexy men who challenge and comfort them in the best possible ways. The witty comments and pillow talk among friends and lovers will keep me hooked on this series, as I have with all Ms. Proby's others.

3.5 Stars Reviewed by Francesca and posted at Under The Covers Book Blog I loved the premise of this book because it comes elements that I love to read about and I can’t wait to see them all explored more in this series. First off, a restaurant setting. The heroine in this book, Addison, is co-owner of Seduction along with her best friends. I love books set in a restaurant (the foodie in me!) and the bonds of friendship between the women that the author explores so well in this book are an added bonus. With how different each of the women are, I know it’ll make for an interesting and varied series. In LISTEN TO ME, Addison is an ex-model and falls for an ex-rock star who comes to sing at Seduction. I love that both of them have left their crazy careers behind in a sense and are a bit more centered and mature now to be in the right frame of mind for a relationship. The romance between Addison and Jake is sweet and cute throughout this book. But there were some things that I didn’t enjoy as much, or that I think could’ve been stronger. Mainly the backstory for both characters. They both have their own demons that make them feel unworthy of being in a happy relationship, or thinking that they’ll just hurt the other person. But the reason behind why and how they eventually overcome those issues was not as strong as I would’ve liked to see. I do enjoy Kristen Proby’s writing style. She tells this story with ease and makes you feel part of this group. And while she’s weaving this sweet romance between the main characters, she’s also left me really curious for what the next book will bring. Can’t wait to read it.

I have read each and every book that Kristen Proby has written and loved them all and this one is no different! I loved pulled me in in the first few pages...I fell in love with her writing when I read her first book Come Away With Me and have been a fan ever since. In this book I love how determined, independent and strong Addison is and her love of bad boys! I love Jake..he is hot, sexy, strong and so in love with music...the two are attracted to each other immediately and the sparks fly. Once I started this book I could not put it down and read it in one long sitting...she has this knack for drawing readers in so that you can not put a book down! Jake and Addison's relationship of course doesn't have it's bumps...the need to trust, forgive and just give into what they are feeling...I look forward to the next book in this series. If you haven't read any of her books I recommend that you take the leap you will be so glad that you did I know that I am!

I’ve been a HUGE Kristen Proby fan since she first self published COME AWAY WITH ME, this first book in her With Me In Seattle and she has been on my auto buy list for years now. I have read and loved every single book she has published, and LISTEN TO ME is no exception. I’ve loved to see her talent as a writer grow and flourish over the years as well. This is her first series that doesn’t revolve around a blood related family, but you can still feel the strong familial connection between these five female best friends. This story follows Addison and Jake as they get to know and trust each other and eventually fall head over heels in love with each other. Addie has always been attracted to the bad boy musician type. They are her weakness. When the book first opens she is dating Jeremy, a local musician who seems to be going nowhere fast and ends up betraying Addie and breaking her heart. I love the heroines that Kristen writes; they are always strong, intelligent, quick witted, hilarious, and spunky. You can’t help but notice that Kristen has to leave a little piece of herself in each of her amazing heroines. Jake Keller lays eyes on Addie and falls for her immediately. Jake is a former rock star who gave up the limelight after a life changing accident and now runs an extremely successful music production company with his former band mate, where they write and produce for other high profile and well established acts. He seems to be running from his past and his love of performing when he meets Addie and she makes him want to change his mind. Jake is an amazing bossy, stubborn, and super sexy alpha that I’ve come to look for and love in each one of Kristen’s books. They are definitely near the top of my book boyfriend baseball team roster. (Hello sexy Nate McKenna from FIGHT WITH ME!❤ ) Kristen writes with such heart, humor, and heat that you can’t help but want to binge on the rest of her back list after reading this perfect contemporary romance. Whether you are new to Kristen Proby or an old tried and true fan, I have no doubt that you will end up loving this book and eventually this series. I know I can’t wait for the next book in the series, CLOSE TO YOU to be released. Roll on August 9, 2016!
