Seducing Lauren (Love Under the Big Sky #2) by Kristen Proby: ARC Review & Giveaway



Blurb:

In the second book in the Love Under the Big Sky series from this USA TODAY bestselling author of the With Me in Seattle series, life in Montana gets spicy when a woman and her divorce lawyer sign off the papers—and sign on to love.

Now that his best friend, Josh, has happily settled down with his true love on a Montana ranch, small-town lawyer Ty Sullivan starts thinking that maybe single life isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. And when Lauren Cunningham’s no-good ex-husband comes after her for an unexpected trust fund, Ty steps in to protect her. But soon he can’t help but think of her as more than a client. Lauren’s in no mood to jump into another relationship, so how can Ty convince her that her mistake wasn’t getting married, but marrying the wrong guy?

Review by Yvette:

While reading Seducing Lauren, book two in her Love Under the Big Sky series, I was reminded once again why Kristen Proby has become one of my go-to authors. Proby never fails to deliver sexy, well-written romance novels populated by swoonworthy, chivalrous heroes and the strong, sassy heroines that bring them to their knees. She writes in such a way that you can be easily drawn in to the story, making you feel as though you're listening to a close friend relay a particularly captivating (and unabashedly steamy) anecdote. There's a line in the book where one of the main characters, Lauren, talks about her parents' relationship, saying, "Watching them together was like watching a fairy tale." This perfectly sums up how I feel when I read a novel by Kristen Proby, who writes her own unique versions of fairy tales with each new couple she introduces readers to.

The romance between protagonists Ty Sullivan and Lauren Cunningham is fairly straightforward: hunky, tatted up lawyer connects with sexually repressed divorcee and together they make uber steamy, fantasy-inducing, sugary sweet love. Okay... maybe things aren’t quite so straightforward, but their relationship forges full steam ahead early on once Ty makes the decision to pursue Lauren. Ty is confident and aggressive when it comes to what he wants, ensuring that Lauren's initial resistance is short-lived. Even though Lauren succumbs to Ty's considerable charms almost immediately, he never stops making an effort to impress on her his general goodness - a fact that I appreciated more when confronted with the mistakes of her past, namely Lauren’s villainous ex-husband, whose interactions with her added an air of danger and suspense to the narrative.

With her Love Under the Big Sky series, Proby creates a cast of characters that inspire a certain level of devotion, much like she did with the Montgomery family in her With Me in Seattle series. Lauren, Ty, and their core group of friends are characters we've either already gotten to know or will get to know on an intimate level, and their frequent appearances in the book reflect this casual intimacy. As much as I loved following Ty and Lauren’s relationship, it was the camaraderie between these characters that I enjoyed the most because getting to know them on a personal level enabled me to become more invested in each individual character.
