Chapel Bend by Kristen Proby is now live!

From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby comes Chapel Bend, an enemies to lovers, small town romance in her beloved series, Huckleberry Bay!

There’s a fine line between love and hate. In Huckleberry Bay, Oregon, everyone knows that when it comes to Juniper “June” Snow – what you see is what you get. When you hire her construction company to do a job, it’s done right, on time, and on budget. When she’s your friend, she’s a ride-or-die who will support you no matter what. And when you’re her enemy…well, she can hold a grudge. And she’s never forgotten how the tall, dark, and delicious Apollo Winchester hurt her so many years ago. In a small town, it’s impossible to ignore someone who greets you with a death glare every time you meet. Apollo can’t recall why June hates him, but it doesn’t stop him from stirring her up every chance he gets. There’s something about her stubborn, “don’t mess with me” attitude that keeps him coming back for more. But June is his sister’s best friend and permanently on the “off-limits” list. June puts aside her war with Apollo and hires him to work on her most important project, the renovation of a chapel into her dream home. She wants the best…and Apollo is the best . . . on the job site and in her bed. He won’t turn down the chance to spend more time with June, especially when it’s clear that she wants him as much as she hates him. Proximity leads to opportunity, and opportunity leads to steamy times between the sheets. But a mystery threatens June and Apollo will protect her and their growing connection, no matter the cost.

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Chapel Bend is the third book in the fantastic Huckleberry Bay series by Kristen Proby. Each book can be read as standalone but I highly recommend reading the series. It’s a better way of getting to know the group of friends and their personalities. I have been excited about this couple since the beginning! 
June hates Apollo. Apollo doesn’t know why his sister’s best fiend hates him so much but what he does know is that her attitude turns him on. The banter is their foreplay, she just needs to accept it. And let me tell you, when she does…it’s explosive. 
It’s not the first time she let her guard down around the handsome man the town knows she hates. But, one night changes everything. A one-night truce was all it was supposed to be but Apollo has other plans…
I don’t want to spoil anything so I will just say again…explosive. In and out of the bedroom. The banter. The connection. It’s all so much fun. It’s not just the sex though, they really do have a beautiful connection. 
I can’t wait for the next book! If it’s the couple I am pretty sure it is…omfg! I am already laughing. 
“If you tell me that I clean up nicely, I’ll punch you in the stomach.” 
That makes him smile. “You look pretty tonight, but you were no less pretty this afternoon.”
“We can’t date each other,” I say again, “because we’d end up killing each other, Apollo. I don’t want to die young.” 
His lips twitch into that sexy-as-hell smirk that he always flings my way. “But what a way to go, Juniper.”
“You make me crazy in the best ways. You challenge me, and you make me laugh. You’re so fucking smart that it’s a little intimidating.”
