Eli Boudreaux’s family has built ships and boats in Louisiana for generations. He comes from a hard working, wealthy family and his empire is growing by leaps and bounds. At thirty, he is the youngest CEO to ever head Bayou Enterprises, co-chairing with his eldest brother. His head for business and his no-nonsense work ethic is also quickly making him the best the company has seen in generations. His staff admires him, women adore him and Eli’s family is solid. But he’s recently discovered that someone on the inside of his business is stealing from him and he’s determined to find out who.

Kate O’Shaughnessy is hired by companies all over the world to slip inside and investigate every member of the organization from the CEO down to the custodial staff to find the person or persons responsible for embezzling. She’s excellent at blending, becoming part of the team, and finding the weakest link. She’s smart, quick-witted, and she’s now been hired by Bayou Enterprises, specifically Eli Boudreaux. The attraction is immediate and the chemistry is off the charts, but Kate has heard all about Eli’s playboy past and she has a job to do. Sleeping with the boss isn’t a part of that job, even if just the sound of her name rolling off that Cajun tongue and the way he fills out a designer suit does make her sweat.

Eli’s southern charms surprise Kate. The man whose reputation labels him as a ruthless, callous womanizer is not the man she’s coming to know intimately. He’s generous, protective and makes her smile. Cracking through Kate’s cool, reserved demeanor and discovering her love of sexy, expensive lingerie is a challenge Eli can’t resist, but her sweet nature, love of family and sense of humor pull at him in ways no one else ever has.

But when the person responsible for trying to single-handedly dismantle Eli’s empire comes to light, and it’s time for Kate to move on, to what lengths will Eli go to keep the woman he’s fallen in love with by his side?


“you can’t control the wind, but you can adjust your sails. It was his way of reminding us that you can’t control most of what happens in life. You can only control your reaction to it.”

I always loved reading Kristen Proby’s book and I can tell you she did good in this book.I can tell you now that I devoured this book….. I read it in less than 24 hours, I just loved Eli and Kate’s story and how amazing they were. Yes I gave this book a 4 star but I can easily make it a 5 heart/star rating. Reading Kristen Proby’s books gives me unending passion. I cannot explain how Proby’s books can pull me in so quickly, it’s like the book has has hypnotic powers. When I heard that there is going to be another series like… I was so over the moon and I added the series to my TBR Pile immediately. I loved this book so much and I never wanted this book to end….. If this is the beginning of the series… then good lord, we’re in for one hell of a ride! When I think of Eli I can just say O-M-G!  I know for a fact that Kristen can write amazing sexy hot boyfriends( obviously have you read about the men in her With Me in Seatless series?!) so if you decide to read this book then you sould be ready to swoon but I can tell you now…. You won’t be ready for Eli of any of the Boudreaux men! I mean who can be prepared for southern boy with an amazing, sexy accent with gorgeous whiskey colored eyes? I know I can’t; Eli should come with a warning label! He has a deliciously filthy mouth and he can do a lot of delicious sinful things and he has one amazing smile( my weakness!) oh and what can I say about his ass? He has a nice ass! 😉 That obviously is just the surface, I mean he is a blissfully fantastic man… He is kind,generous, sweet, intelligent, charismatic and very thoughtful….. I can go on but the. I will write a novel :p I love how Kristen writes her books that the characters are a very close family and when you read this book you can see that they are a close family with all those interactions! Eli thought he could never love anyone and it took a beautiful redhead to show him that his wrong.

“Let me make it clear; we can have sweat dripping, sheet ripping, furniture breaking, screaming, trembling, hair pulling, ass smacking fucking for hours, or soft, sweet, quiet, intense lovemaking for days. You can have either or both, but we’re not leaving here without me being inside you, sugar.”

I can tell you one thing. Kate did so not know what she was getting into with Eli. She thought she is only going to figure out who is stealing from the Company but she got more than she expected. What I loved about Kate is that she didn’t cuss- yes it might sound silly but it’s actually very adorable and I smiled a goofy smile when ever Eli got her to cuss! I loved the friendship she had with Savannah and Declan…. She has this sweet relationship with the twins and I loved the both of them to bits( can’t wait til I get their stories) I can tell you Kate is remarkably strong, she has so much strength and sass that I could not get enough of her. The more I read about her the more I wish that I have a bestie like her I mean who can ask for more? Eli never stood a chance against her charms I mean who could not love her?

“This man can kiss like no one I’ve ever met. He kisses like it’s his damn job.”

This story has so much bliss and joy…..  Eli and Kate  had this connection from the moment they met that build into sexual tension and chemistry that gives so much passion that made you want to fan yourself! I couldn’t help but enjoy every second of this book! I loved all the little ways Eli showed how much he cares so yeah it was not all about the sex that was just the icing on the cake! I loved their banter and playfulness and he really liked to feed her. They started as friends with benefits but it evolved into so much more between them without them even noticing it.  There relationship was so easy for them, I mean it was effortless….. This relationship has all the goodness and the feels that leaves you swooning!

“I fell into such an easy love with you, I didn’t even realize it was happening until one day, it was everything.”

I can mention that you will not fall in love with just Eli and Kate  but you will love the whole family. Seriously you won’t be able to help yourself for loving them! I really can’t wait till all of them has their own books. Trust me on that! This book just flowed so naturally and fluidly. Easy love is in Kate and Eli’s POV well up until the end! The epilogue is in Kate cousin POV which means his book is next and I can’t wait to read it! I will be reading that book next starting today so I can’t wait to see what the Boudreaux family will mean to him! I need more of the Boudreaux family!!!

“The best,” Eli finishes on a groan and eats one of the treats in two bites. He licks his lips, and my ninety-dollar black lace panties are soaking wet. This man should come with a warning label.”
