Kissing Jenna by Kristen Proby Blog Tour

From New York Times Bestselling Author Kristen Proby comes the newest installment in her beloved Big Sky Series…

Jenna Hull owns and manages vacation rentals in her hometown of Cunningham Falls, Montana. She’s just completed the construction of her most exhausting project, the one she’s put her heart and soul into. The inviting, opulent Snow Wolf Cottages are the first ski in/ski out tree houses in the world. Her biggest dream is about to come true, and she can’t let anything distract her.

Christian Wolfe is Hollywood’s it actor. If the magazines are to be believed, he’s the sexiest man on earth. He’s preparing for the biggest movie role of his life, and his agent has booked him in a hot new ski lodge in Montana, tucked away from crazy fans. He can’t wait for the break.

But what Christian isn’t prepared for is Jenna. With a face that could easily co-star with him in a movie and her ambition to put her stamp on Cunningham Falls, he can’t stay away. But even more intriguing than her beauty is the fact that she’s not at all impressed with his celebrity status, only turned on by the man behind the fame.

The love they’ve found is perfect—but time is running out before real life intrudes. Can they survive with both their dreams—and hearts—intact?

“Come on in. This is your home away from home for the next four weeks.” I pause in the kitchen while he wanders through the space, looking outside, then taking in the blue kitchen cabinets, the large gas fireplace, and the comfortable furniture. “In the email correspondence, you asked for extra groceries to be stocked in the kitchen, and I’ve done that for you.”

“Thanks,” he says. “Where’s the closest Starbucks?”

I lean my hip on the counter and take a sip of my now lukewarm coffee. “In town.”

“Not on the mountain?”

“There’s a coffee shop up here, yes, but it doesn’t open until tomorrow when the season officially starts. I believe that’s the case for the restaurants up here, too.”

“So, no food up here?”

I shake my head. “No, but I’ll take pity on you and make you dinner tonight, if you like.”

His eyes narrow, suspicion written all over his face. “Why would you do that?”

I lean in as if I’m about to tell him a secret and whisper loudly, “Because I’m a nice person.”

He doesn’t smile.

“You can figure it out for yourself if you want to.” I shrug and lead him to the barn door that closes the small bedroom off the living space. “This is the bedroom on this level. There’s a bathroom here, too. I’ll show you the upstairs.”

I climb the stairs, certain that his eyes are on my ass, and hear him gasp when we reach the top.

“Cool, huh?”

“Beautiful,” he murmurs again, looking up.

This is a spin-off of the With Me in Seattle series and while you don't necessarily need to read those books before reading these, there are some cross-over characters.

This is the second book in this series and just like Proby's previous books, it can be read alone, but I suggest you read them in order. 1. They are amazing. 2. There are characters that show up again. And 3. You'll want to know all about the characters' backgrounds.

Jenna is a strong, independent woman who has just opened an amazing ski retreat. She has a strong core group of friends and isn't necessarily looking for love. However, with her business, she was bound to run across some good-looking prospects. What she doesn't expect is to fall in love with a movie star.

Christian is getting away from his life for a while, all while learning to ski for a big part in a movie. He falls in love with the resort and the resort owner in a very quick time. For him, he was existing, but not necessarily living. He was constantly on the lookout for the paps and knew that he had to guard his heart after a bad experience when he was younger.

This is a sweet story with great development. While I'm not usually one to enjoy insta-love stories, this one doesn't seem that way. I am so glad that each woman is getting their own story. I am excited for the next story, but REALLY want Willa's story... Proby is making me wait longer! However, I cannot recommend Proby enough. She has a way of spinning characters to truly make you see their lives through your own eyes.

The second installment in this series – and Jenna Hull, Brad's sister, gets her chance at love. I would definitely recommend that you read the books in order, as they are sooo good, but if you can't wait to read this one, well you can always circle back, when you understand what you are missing!

We met Jenna planning and starting her tree house project in the last book, so it was wonderfully exciting to get to see how perfectly they turned out – and as it happens, all her hard work paid off in more ways than plentiful bookings. She was a lovely, lively, and fun person then, with the best collection of coffee mugs with hilarious sayings on them and a pair of big brothers to 'watch over' her. To be fair, since Hannah entered his life, Brad has a slightly more romantic view on life, but Max still threatens anyone who comes close. Luckily famous movie star Christian Wolf has no fear (well except of heights) and stays the course with great style. He and Jenna are just made for each other, and somehow he has to make his career fit his newly found romantic nature, and the need for the love of this woman.

As we catch up with old friends (lots of them, which made me very happy) and laugh along with them at their kooky courtship, the pages just keep turning, and then... well, all too soon the book ends, and I do hope that another installment is soon to be released, as I am very happy in the world of Cunningham Falls.

Another hit for me.

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.
