About EASY LOVE:
Eli Boudreaux’s family has built ships and boats in Louisiana for generations. He comes from a hardworking, 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?
“I do like you,” he repeats. When I would look down, he catches my chin with his finger and tilts my head up. “But this is a bad idea.”
“What is?” I whisper, hating the shakiness in my voice.
“This.” He lowers his face to mine and sweeps his nose across my own, gently. His lips haven’t touched mine yet, but they’re tingling, already yearning for him. His hands glide up my bare arms to my neck, his thumbs gently draw circles along my jawline as he places a light, barely-there kiss on the corner of my lips. I hear a soft moan, and would be mortified to know that it came from me if I could find my brain cells.
This man is dangerous. Everything about him screams RUN! but instead I grip onto his lean hips and tug him closer. He needs no further invitation. He slips those amazing lips of his over mine, licks my bottom lip, and when I gasp at the fission of pure lust that moves through me, he moves in for the kill.
His tastes like the after-meal peppermint we both ate and the light one or two day scruff on his chin rasps against my skin in the most tantalizing way. I can’t help but wonder how it would feel on other parts of my body; behind my knees, between my breasts, between my legs.
Holy shit, I bet he would feel amazing between my legs.
I grip onto his biceps and realize that the one arm he’s slung around the small of my back is the only thing keeping me upright. My knees no longer exist. We’re both breathing hard as he drags his fingers down my cheek and pulls back, nibbling the edge of my lips once more and then he’s gone, staring down at me with shining whiskey eyes.
“That. That’s a bad idea.”[KS1]

What an absolutely fabulous, funny, sexy and sweet love story with a little bit of suspense and mystery built in!!!
Easy Love is book 1 in Kristen Proby’s The Boudreaux Series. I have to say this series is off to a GREAT start. I look forward to reading more books in this series. Kristen is definitely becoming one of my favorite authors. I have loved every book I have read by her. She has a way of creating these fair tale type romance books. Some may think that they are a little over the top but I love them. I read to escape into a fantasy world and she helps me do that so easily. Her writing is smooth and flawless. I love that her books dive right into the heart of the story…she doesn’t add all that extra background info and in turn drags things out. Her books are generally ones I can devour in less than a day, but a lot of that is because I hate to put them down.
In this book we meet Kate and Eli. What amazing characters. Kate was such a great woman. I loved her innocence but she was also a very strong person. She was smart, sassy but also very caring and loving. She had some bad things happen to her in her past relationship, so she really doesn’t want to go down the love road again. I can’t say that I blame her. That is until she meets Eli. No one can resist this man!!! He was FABULOUS!!! He was a great mix of strong and cocky Alpha with a sweet southern charm. Years ago Eli lived a good life of doing what he wanted and living how he wanted, that was until his father passed away and on his death bed said some things to Eli that made him change his lifestyle. Eli was determined to keep the family company going strong and making his father proud of him. So he too didn’t want to jump on the love train. That is until Kate shows up and changes everything!!!! These two were perfect for each other, they truly balanced each other out. Their banter made me laugh and their chemistry threatened to melt my kindle….smokin HOT!!!
We also got to meet all the other Boudreaux Family members. There is Beau, Charly, Declan, Savannah (Van), and Gabby. I have always loved reading series that include family. It’s great to see what a special bond all the family members have. I look forward to reading books about each of these characters.
Another thing I really enjoyed about this book was that Kristen had the ability to make me feel like I was in New Orleans with these characters. She gave us a feel of the food, music and nightlife that the Big Easy has to offer. I have to say it made me want to take a vacation there sometime soon 🙂 There is only one thing that I can say I was upset about with this book. There are two things that happen in this story, that weren’t resolved in the end. I was left with two questions about stuff that happened and I wish we would’ve found out how they played out. But even with that said, it didn’t deter me from fully enjoying, loving and devouring this book.
Whether you are a fan of Kristen’s books or haven’t read any of them yet…don’t wait, pick up this book and read it now!!! You don’t want to miss reading about this amazing family and that is left to come for them.
