Camilla, “Cami,” LaRue was five-years-old when she first fell in love with Landon Palazzo. Everyone told her the puppy love would fade—they clearly never met Landon. When he left after graduation without a backward glance, she was heartbroken. But Cami grew up, moved on, and became part-owner of wildly popular restaurant Seduction. She has everything she could want...or so she thinks.

After spending the last twelve years as a Navy fighter pilot, Landon returns to Portland to take over the family construction business. When he catches a glimpse of little Cami LaRue, he realizes she’s not so little any more. He always had a soft spot for his little sister’s best friend, but nothing is soft now when he’s around the gorgeous restauranteur.

Landon isn’t going to pass up the chance to make the girl-next-door his. She’s never been one for romance, but he’s just the one to change her mind. Will seduction be just the name of her restaurant or will Cami let him get close enough to fulfill all her fantasies?

“I get lost in you,” I whisper, wishing I could see her face but not wanting to move her. “Mm,” she says. “But it’s the kind of lost that’s like being found.” Kristen Proby – Close to You

Every book and I do mean EVERY. BOOK. I have ever read by Kristen Proby has been magic.  From beginning to end…I’m invested. Every time.  I have been looking forward to this book for months, and I was not disappointed.  It was everything I had hoped it would be.

I love the antics of this group of ladies.  This series is about a close-knit group of friends who own a super successful bar in Portland.  It has been fun to watch as they find love in sometimes unexpected ways.  The chemistry between Landon and Cami practically had my Kindle smoking right away.  Childhood friends, unspoken crushes, years of time, and second chances – my favorite elements.
