New York Times Bestselling author Kristen Proby takes us back to her highly acclaimed Fusion series.
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.
Well, maybe just once…
No Reservations is a novella in the Fusion Series by Author Kristen Proby.

As always each book that Kristen Proby publishes it is the perfect addition to the series. This novella is short, steamy, and has two amazing characters that I am so glad we were able to learn more about. Chase Mackenzie and Maura Jenkins know what they want in life and have the whole take no crap attitude but won’t apologize for it. There is no surprise that this book is added to one of my favorites from this author. To be honest though all of her books are my favorite. I have read every single book she has had published and there is a reason why. KRISTEN PROBY IS ONE AMAZING AUTHOR!!!!
Chase and Maura are setup on a blind date yet the already know each other. Chase has asked her out many times but Maura has said no each time. After a few glasses of wine and a ride home things get steamy and heavy fast. It was great.
Chase is a ladies man and he knows that. He doesn’t do relationships or love… well until he meets Maura and that goes all out the window. He needs to have her at first only once but once he got a taste there was not quitting. Soon one night turns into two and then well… I guess you should find out for yourself.
I recommend you read the rest of the series first before jumping into this book. That way you get the idea of the other characters. And plus the other books in this series are AMAZING as well!!!
Once we’ve caught our breath, he pushes up on his arms, taking his weight off of me, and smiles down at me.
“Well, that was fun.”
“Definitely fun,” I reply with a nod, then wiggle out from under him and flip on the lamp next to the bed. I blink rapidly in the light and glance at him. He’s watching me, still kneeling in the middle of the bed, breathing hard. “I’m not staying.”
“I figured,” he says and rolls off the bed, pads into the bathroom, flushes the toilet, and returns to find me pulling on my clothes. “You don’t have to leave right now.”
Oh yes. I do.
“I should,” I reply, doing my best to seem very nonchalant. “I have plans in the morning.”
He nods. “I’ll take you home then.”
“Great plan, since I don’t have a car and it’s practically the middle of the night.”
“Or midnight.” He smirks and pulls on a pair of jeans. He doesn’t button them, or add a shirt, and instead stands there with his arms folded over his chest, watching me tug the skirt down my legs.
I can’t find my panties, and I refuse to ask for them, so I’ll just consider them a loss.
Five minutes later, we’re back in his sexy car and headed toward my condo.
“This won’t happen again,” I inform him, breaking the silence.
“We irritate the sh*t out of each other.”
He sighs deeply and mutters “that’s the truth” under his breath.
“So even if the chemistry is there, we won’t do this again.”
I nod and hold my pinky out to him. “Pinky swear.”
“I’m not a twelve-year-old girl.”
“No, you’re not,” I agree with a laugh. “But now I feel silly, so just do it.”
He links his pinky with mine and then pulls my hand to his mouth, kissing my knuckles.
“This is how the f*cking gets started.”
“No, sweetheart, the f*cking got started months ago.”
