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.

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?”
Many thanks to InkSlinger PR for giving me a free review copy of this novella in exchange for my honest review!

I first discovered Kristen Proby's "Seduction" series around this time last year, and really fell in love with the concept of five best girlfriends going into business together and using their different talents to follow their dreams. "No Reservations" is a bit of a spin-off novella, in that it doesn't really involve any of the original five Seduction owners, except for Kat, who makes a brief cameo appearance. Instead, we've got Maura, a friend of Kat's, and Chase, Kat's husband's brother. 

I don't always enjoy novellas because they can be too short to show any character development. I thought Proby did a good job here in bringing Maura and Chase to life in such an abbreviated time span. At first, I was frustrated with the back and forth between these two. Even though they set up some ground rules in advance, they both kept breaking them, and I just wanted them to communicate their feelings and get over whatever it was that was holding them back. By the end of the book, however, I felt that I got to know and like these characters, especially once I was let in on the reason behind each of their hangups, and I ended up hoping they would get their happily ever after.

As with all of the other books in this series, the chemistry between Chase and Maura practically leaps off the page. If you haven't experienced the steam that is Proby's writing, then you really need to remedy that! And if you're not sure whether you're up to that spice level, then what better way to sample the heat than with a shorter book like "No Reservations"? 

My rating: 3.5 stars
