Kissing Jenna by Kristen Proby
Series: Big Sky #2
Release Date: July 10, 2018
Synopsis: 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?

I have been anxiously waiting for Kissing Jenna for what seems like a long time. We caught glimpses of Jenna Hull in other books, but I wanted to know her story. She is a successful entrepreneur, a great sister and from what I know about her from other books someone who I would want to be friends with in real life. I just couldn’t wait to see what Kristen had up her sleeve for Jenna’s story! Let me tell you – this story did not disappoint!
In Kissing Jenna we are given Jenna and Christian Wolfe’s story! Christian is staying at Jenna’s brand new tree house vacation rental as he learns to ski and prepares for his next movie role. Prepare for next movie role? Yep, Christian Wolfe is Hollywood’s “IT” actor and this break to Montana is to give him some privacy and a bit of a time out from all the fame he deals with in Hollywood. Upon first meeting Christian he can’t believe that Jenna actually treats him just like she would anyone else. He finds it refreshing and attractive. As they continue to spend time together Christian realizes that Jenna is as real as they come and he can’t help but start to fall for her. Jenna isn’t impressed with Christian being Hollywood’s IT actor. Instead she is impressed with the man behind the fame, the one she is learning about every single day. As they start to spend more time together and learning about one another, it isn’t long before the chemistry between them heats up! They both realize that being with one another makes them happy. However, can this become a reality when Christian has an expiration date on his vacation to Montana and Jenna is tied down there? Will they be able to find a way around real life obstacles or will they just be fond memory to one another?
I absolutely LOVED this story!! I had such a hard time putting it down and functioning in the real world. Kristen Proby does it YET again, another 5 star book!! As always I am beyond excited and ready for whatever Kristen is going to give us next!
“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.
“Beautiful,” he murmurs again, looking up.
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.
