Portland, Oregon - Present Day

Riley is joking with her friends in their restaurant about her most recent bad date when a very handsome looking man joins in. He's cute, fun, and funny, and Riley would love to get to know him betteróbut after a string of terrible dates, she's ready to swear off men. But it seems she's destined to spend time with Trevor no matter what she thinks, since he's the executive producer of a show that's going to be filming her restaurant for the next few weeks.

Trevor is only going to be in Portland long enough to film the show. But there's something so special about Riley, he can't help but want to be with her, even if it means trying to make a long distance relationship work. But drama from both the upcoming distance and an old ex might push the two apart, no matter how much they care about each other.

THE BEAUTY OF US is another amazing Fusion novel from author Kristen Proby. Proby writes female characters I want to be friends with, and male characters I wish were as real as they feel so I could meet one of my own. With a story that can make my heart both hurt and sing, this book cannot be missed.

THE BEAUTY OF US works fine as a stand-alone, but the Fusion friend group is tight-knit, so you'll want to check out the previous books as well. The series begins with LISTEN TO ME (APR 2016), CLOSE TO YOU (SEPT 2016), BLUSH FOR ME (MAR 2017), and the next book, SAVOR YOU, will follow in April 2018.
