About LISTEN TO ME:

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?

Excerpt:

“Can we help you?”

“I’m looking for the manager. I was told I’d find her in here.”

“And you have,” Blondie says and turns on her bar stool to look at me.

And suddenly the air is stolen from my lungs. This is the woman I saw the other night at the club. The one I couldn’t take my eyes off of. The one that made the rest of the room fade away.

The only word I have for her is bombshell, and I’ve never used that word in my life.

She slides off her seat, perfectly at home in her mile-high black heels, and strides quickly and confidently to me. She’s in a high-waisted, black pencil skirt with a white button-down tucked into it. Her sleeves are rolled, the top few buttons unfastened on her shirt, giving me a glimpse at the most impressive cleavage I’ve ever seen.

Her blond hair is piled high on her head, in lazy curls. Her makeup is simple and flawless.

And she’s wearing black-rimmed glasses.

Fuck me.

I swallow hard and hold my hand out to shake hers, but she come to an abrupt halt about two feet too far to take it.

“You’re –“

“Jake Keller,” I interrupt and close the gap to shake her hand. Hers is warm and slender, but her grip is firm. Her eyes narrow.

“Jake Knox,” she corrects me. “My friends all had your posters on their walls.”

“You didn’t?” I ask with a cocky smirk, already enjoying her.

“No, I wasn’t particularly smitten with you.” She pulls her glasses off her nose, much to my disappointment, and tucks them on top of her head in her hair.

“God, I’m such a sucker for a beautiful woman in glasses.

“Shame,” I reply and continue to smile at her.

“How can I help you?”

“I’m here about the job.”

She frowns. “You want to be a busboy? Are times really that bad, Mr. Knox?”

“Keller,” I correct her. “Actually, just call me Jake. And I’m here about the weekend music gig. Although, I can clear tables if need be.”

She tilts her head, hooks a stray strand of hair behind her ear, and smiles and my heart stops. Fucking hell, where did this woman come from?

And where the hell are these thoughts coming from?

“I’m quite sure I can’t afford you, Mr. Keller.” She turns to walk away, but I catch her elbow, turning her back to me.

“It’s not about the money,” I say quickly. “I’d really just like to play.”

“Your whole band?” she asks with a frown.

“No, just me. I’ll bring my guitar and all I’ll need you to provide is a mic and a stool, but I’m sure I can come up with a mic if you don’t already have one.”

She blinks at me, as if I’m not speaking English, then finally says, “Okay, where are the cameras.” She looks around the room and points at Red behind the bar. “Did you stage this? Seriously, you guys are bitches for doing this to me.”

Red laughs and shakes her head. “No tricks here, Addie. But send him over to me when you’re done with him.”

Addie turns back to me with skeptical eyes. “She was one of my friends with your poster on her wall.”

“And I’m not afraid to admit it,” Red says loudly as she stocks more wine.

“So, the job.” I cross my arms over my chest and watch her eyes dilate when they land on the sleeve tattoo on my right arm.

She’s not immune to me.
