Publisher's Summary

Adam Spencer loves women. All women. Every shape and size, regardless of hair or eye color, religion or race, he simply enjoys them all. Meeting more than his fair share as the manager and head bartender of The Odyssey, a hot spot in the heart of New Orleans' French Quarter, Adam's comfortable with his lifestyle, and sees no reason to change it. A wife and kids, plus the white picket fence are not in the cards for this confirmed bachelor. Until a beautiful woman, and her sweet princess, literally knock him on his ass.

Sarah Cox has just moved to New Orleans, having accepted a position as a social worker specializing in at-risk women and children. It's a demanding, sometimes dangerous job, but Sarah is no shy wallflower. She can handle just about anything that comes at her, even the attentions of one sexy Adam Spencer. Just because he's charmed her daughter, making her think of magical kingdoms with happily ever after, doesn't mean that Sarah believes in fairy tales. But the more time she spends with the enchanting man, the more he begins to sway her into believing in forever.

Even so, when Sarah's job becomes more dangerous than any of them bargained for, will she be ripped from Adam's life forever?

    "I felt this story had more to give😌"

    I was looking forward to this book but felt there were a few pieces left unfinished as we did not find out what happen to the family she was caring for or no epilogue to there future I have most of Kirsten books and this is the only one I have been disappointed with

    "I need more 😫"

    I love the Boudreaux series, but this short story was just perfect. It was just the right amount to fill me up till the next book. I really enjoyed that they didn't take to long to work on the relationship and it didn't feel rushed. Sebastian York in that accent gets an A plus. Hot hot hot!!!

    Story
    "a short, sexy and sweet read"
    Where does Easy for Keeps rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was a midway quick easy read!


    What other book might you compare Easy for Keeps to and why?

    The other books in her Boudreaux series.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I thought the dinner date for the three of them was sweet.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and it was almost possible, short and sweet as it was.


    Any additional comments?

    One of my pet peeves with this series is that the very talented female narrator Rachel Fulginiti, is marvelous with that Cajun accent. She didn't have to do the female character with much accent, as Sara was from Miami ... but her Adam in N'Awlins was perfect. In every single other Boudreaux book, Sebastian York who I utterly adore for an alpha male smart ass character, we can barely get Sebastian to try a Southern accent for anyone. I have heard every one and have the same complaint with them all. Now, in this 3.5 book that bridges Adam's maturing thru his own time and meeting and choosing Sara, he picks THIS one book to come thru with the Southern Charm and decent Adam voice! Why? One of the mysteries of life I guess. I'm still shaking my head over it. But, it made for a a more authentic experience and a better read to have the balance between narrators.

    "Adam's finally taken!"

    This was an awesome addition to the series. It's so sweet to see the playboy taken down by a 5 year old and he mom. Super sweet novella.

    Any additional comments?

    Adam and Sarah were incredible together. Sarah awakened his true alpha nature, first through his protective side, immediately upon meeting, and then, almost instantly after they start dating, his dominant and possessive instincts take over where she is concerned, and let me tell you, it was beyond HOT! <br/>This is a cute, fun, hot quick read, it has everything you expect from Kristen Proby.

    "No conflict"

    Story is soap opera without any conflict. I did like the characters and their interaction, though.

    Love the narrator, Sebastian York, as usual. Best of the best,

    Story
    "Pretend sexy & Too easy"

    Simple, boring. Proby doesn't do raunchy sexy well. She needs to stick to what she does well, and this story is an example of her limits, unfortunately. Similarly, the female narrator doesn't do raunchy well either. So when she played Adam at his raunchy best it came across, instead, as crass. I listen to plenty of erotica and steamy romance story, so I don't think raunchy and raw sex talk has to come across as crass. The female narrator was the primary narrator, so her lack showed up more than I would like. She was ok as Sarah but also had limited success as Sarah's 5-year-old daughter, Haley. She made Haley sound much older, though Sarah's dialogue didn't help. Too, Sarah sounded like a child being mocked, not an actual little girl. The female narrator also did poorly when pronouncing a well-known French café in New Orleans. Doesn't everybody know how to pronounce it just by hearing it so often? I guess not. I hate when narrators appear not to do their due diligence in learning how to pronounce foreign words (but this one is so common it's hard to think of it as foreign) from the native tongue of persons. Also, Proby's attempt at cuteness was also a fail for me. Maybe it's another limit.
    I liked that Adam and Sarah were 30-somethings. I appreciate Proby creating a female character with admitted stretch marks, rolls, un-flat tummy and what was called "shapely," though Sarah was also self-conscious of these aspects, initially; wonderfully it was temporary. And I appreciate Proby's attempt at making a strong female heroine, though I didn't end up liking Sarah much. Her wonder woman act was over the top, more stupid than courageous, and a continuation of the white hero(ine) to the rescue of the person of color and the person of color always being in need of the white rescuer. Fortunately, Sarah's compassion came across as more sincere and realistic. And regardless, the attempt at a strong female character was good and needed in this genre.
    Adam was constantly and ONLY described as hot and alpha. The alpha aspect also wasn't written well or performed well by the female narrator. It too came across as pretend alpha-ing, inauthentic, mockery. Most of the story was just Proby taking the all-too-common aspects of sex, alpha male, and a little bit of pain in sex that's so often part of the simplified romance genre and rehashing them. So there were plenty of cliché phrases, like not knowing where he begins and she ends, fast and hard (sex), etc. Many readers will be left thinking they could've written this story if they listen to enough simplified romance stories. Finally, the culmination was a predictable, over-used anxiety-producing and love-revealing trope. I had ended before I ever reached the end.
