About TEMPTING BROOKE:
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby comes a new story in her Big Sky series…
Brooke’s Blooms has taken Cunningham Falls by surprise. The beautiful, innovative flower shop is trendy, with not only gorgeous flower arrangements, but also fun gifts for any occasion. This store is Brooke Henderson’s deepest joy, and it means everything to her, which shows in how completely she and her little shop have been embraced by the small community of Cunningham Falls.
So, when her landlord dies and Brody Chabot saunters through her door, announcing that the building has been sold, and will soon be demolished, Brooke knows that she’s in for the fight of her life. But she hasn’t gotten this far by sitting back and quietly doing what she’s told. Hustle is Brooke’s middle name, and she has no intention of losing this fight, no matter how tempting Brody’s smile — and body — is.

Brooke and Brody were best friends. Until one day something in Brody’s life happens that has him escaping Cunningham Falls with no plans to ever return. After ten years he’s back to deal with an inheritance issue that threatens Brooke’s business. Brooke’s worked hard to get her business going and when it’s in jeopardy she’s not going down without a fight. What she didn’t expect was the boy that was her best friend to have become such the devastatingly handsome man in front of her. When they’re both tempted to give into their attraction they know the aftermath might not be worth the pain, but they can’t seem to override their feelings.
I can always count on Kristen Proby to deliver a steamy story with plenty of sweet. Tempting Brooke was just that and more. It’s a perfect addition to her Big Sky series and the perfect book to cozy up with for an evening. I loved this novella so much! The chemistry between Brooke and Brody was crazy-good. You could hear it sizzle and pop with each interaction. It’s a great second chance romance that made me want to go and revisit Cunningham Falls all over again. Tempting Brooke is a perfect way to be introduced into the Big Sky world or just revisit old and meet new friends. 4 Stars.

“Brooke?” A slow grin spreads over that sexy mouth, and I have to take a minute to just soak him in. He’s grown a couple more inches, making him ridiculously tall. His dark hair is cut short around his ears, and a little longer on top, stylishly messy.
He’s in cargo shorts and a polo shirt, due to it being the hottest day of the year so far out there.
“Hi, Brody,” I reply and swallow hard. “Thanks for meeting with me.”
“Hi, Brody,” Maisey says with a smile. “Welcome back.”
He blinks and nods, then tosses her a friendly smile. “Thanks. Good to see you.” He turns back to me as he tucks his sunglasses in his pocket. “I thought, since the space next door is empty, we could walk over there.”
I nod and tuck a piece of my hair behind my ear. “That works. Maisey, do you and Micah have this?”
“Of course. Take your time.”
I send her a look that says thanks, but if I’m not back in an hour, come get me.
Brody leads the way and unlocks the glass door, then holds it open for me and waits for me to go ahead of him. He locks the door back up and follows me in.
The room is empty, aside from a glass countertop that used to display knick knacks. Brody walks behind it and leans on it casually, crosses his arms over his chest, and takes a moment to look me up and down, from my toes to my head.
“You still look sixteen,” he says quietly. Just like that, his voice does things to me. It’s deeper now, and his brown eyes aren’t the eyes of a boy anymore. He’s 100% pure sexy man, and I’m suddenly wishing I’d asked Maisey to attend this meeting with me.
“I don’t feel sixteen,” I reply with a small laugh and rest my hands on the countertop across from him. I’m only five-feet-two, so I have to look way up to meet his gaze. His eyes are guarded, but happy. I look at his left hand, and notice that he isn’t wearing a ring.
“You’re not wearing one either,” he says quietly.
He nods once. “I’m assuming you wanted to meet about the letter.”
“I do, yes. Brody, I need you to reconsider.”
His eyebrows climb in surprise. “Excuse me?”
“You heard me. I’d like you to reconsider selling the building. If you sell, and I have to relocate, I could very well go out of business, and this business is important, Brody.”
“To this community.”
