Now let me tell you each time I start reading a book written by Kristen Proby I fall more and more in love with her writing. All her books take me to a very nice happy place! Her characters are all full of love and emotion that you can’t help but be drawn to them! What I love most is this book does not have excess drama. Her books just have enough drama and her plots has amazing balance! Easy Melody is the third novel in the Boudreaux Series and let me tell you I loved them all! It’s always a pleasure to get caught up with the family and friends from previous books especially from the characters from the With me in the Seattle series.
Now Easy Melody is Declan and Callie’s story. Now let me tell you I loved the Boudreaux family, they are just as close as the Montgomery family. They have such warmth and compassion and they all look out for each other. They are what I love in a family. Now this book is sweet and sexy7 with an amazing hero and a sassy heroine. These books are just getting steamier!!! This book was such a quick and easy read which trust me I read this in one day!
Declan is a gentle, sweet-talking. Easy going guy, and a very talented musician just like Leo Nash; who plays in bars around New Orleans. Now let me tell you I learned in this book that Declan has a naughty side, which I loved! It took me completely by surprise: his naughty side! Oh my god what that man does in the bedroom should be illegal! What I did not know is that he was a do-it-yourselfer with him renovating his home. Now his home improvement skills, his project at hand completely appeals to her.
Callie is originally from New Orleans and was raised by a single dad who owned a bar. He became an alcoholic after her mother died, so when Callie is old enough she leaves New Orleans for Denver and starts a new life. Though ten years later she is forced to move back to New Orleans after her farther passed away. He has left her the family bar and she has to figure out what to do with it. While she is back in New Orleans, her boyfriend and boss Keith calls her and literally breaks up with her and fires her all in one phone call. So realizing she has nothing to go back to, she decided to stay in New Orleans and run the bar with her best friend Adam. This is where she meets Declan and at first she hated him. Declan on the other had was smitten with her the moment he saw her and will not take NO for an answer. He is determined to get to know Callie, in every way he can. Now let me tell you Declan is a known player, so I wondered if Callie could tame his wild side and make an honest man out of him. Now you just have to read the book to know!
I loved that the characters overlap in the series. Each of these books can be read as a standalone, but to fully appreciate as this family unit, you would want to read it in the series order. As like in the first two books, the epilogue in this book is a sneak peek to the next book in this series. Easy Kisses is going to be Charly and Simon’s story and I can’t wait to meet Simon! 😀 I said this before that I truly loved was that Kristen included a cameo from the couples from her With Me in Seattle series. So if you haven’t read any of Kristen’s books yet… then don’t wait, pick up the books and read it now! You really don’t want to miss reading such an amazing family dynamic! Trust me go read this book!
