Fate brought them together again, but can Asher keep Lila safe in order to make it last this time?

I really, REALLY loved Asher and Lila but, oh my goodness, talk about a dash through beautiful countryside! I wanted to slow down and savour the view but we hurtled through this at a rate of knots. I know that's the point, this is, after all, a novella but I really wanted a full length story for these two.

Kristen Proby has flirted with romantic suspense before but has only really ever dipped a toe in the murky waters - I would love for her to dive right in and give us a full-length, edgy, tense

Easy with You is a crossover between the With Me in Seattle series and the new Boudreaux series. We were introduced to Asher Smith in Tied With Me and introduced to Lila Bailey in Easy Love.

Easy with You continues their story from Easy Love how they met, what happened that night and how they meet up again and what is going to happen.

Loved Asher and Lila together they are hot and I loved Casey she is so cute and I loved the three of them together. Great spending some more time with Matt and Nic M

OOoooooo this book had me on the edge of my seat! I realllly enjoyed this novella and having the two series meet like that was fabulous.

I was taken right away with Asher and his daughter so freaking cute! I didn’t really connect well with Lila, I liked her but I felt she was a little flat considering what happens I guess I wanted for her character to show a little more emotion maybe.

But overall a great story. Glad I listened to it. The narration was spot on.

What a wonderful novella!

Seeing her again was a punch in the gut. I’m surprised I was able to speak at all.
And now that I know that my Lila is this maniac’s focus, all I can think about is tucking her away and making sure she’s safe.

We met Lila Bailey and Asher Smith in Easy Love when Lila came to visit her best friend Kate, and on the plane to Kate she fell in Adam’s lap and later when they meet again they had a fantastic night together.

Lila now lives in New Orleans and some of her stude

I’m a Kristen Proby addict…she writes it and I must read it. I was really excited when I found out about Easy with You since it’s kind of the connector between her With Me in Seattle Series and her new Boudreaux Series (both of which I love immensely)…so I was excited to see how things played out. And I was not disappointed.

4 - "We broke the bed." Stars!

Decent novella, that interlinks the With Me and Boudreaux series, and gives you a little catch up with Matt and Nic from the former, and provides you with secondary characters; Asher and Lila’s story from the latter. It can be read as a standalone, but I would recommend reading Easy Love as you get the beginnings of Asher and Lila’s story in it.

Add in a little murder mystery, although I pegged who it was from their first introduction, it well written as usual. Altho

Great novella to get over my reading slump. A romance with a little mystery (but I find it predictable). This is a novella for With Me in Seattle. I am recommending that series if you enjoyed Sea Breeze series or Rosemary Beach series by Abbi Glines.
Apr 09, 2019 rated it it was ok
This was a novella so perhaps I'm judging it a bit harshly.... you can only get so much story into novella. But the plot was just so far fetched and unbelievable. I'm giving it 2 stars because I did like the characters and in a different setting, plot, and longer book I would have probably really enjoyed it.

Ok first although you may see this book listed some places as With Me in Seattle #8.5, it is completely a standalone. Ms. Proby masterfully weaves a secondary character from her With Me in Seattle series, Asher (Matt's partner from Tied with Me) into her new Boudreaux series which is set in New Orleans. So yes, you see characters from both series but this novella is truly about Asher and Lila; everything you need to know about them or those around them to love this story is
I think the problem with this one was that it's a novella trying to be a novel. It just felt hastily thrown together. All the events in this would have worked much better had they been fleshed out instead of them moving so fast and falling in love in days.

I also didn't enjoy the suspense element in this. It was predictable and way OTT. Spare me the evil guy spilling his guts in the end, I've seen that a million times before. In my opinion, instead of adding the "evil guy" conflict those pages s

Being a huge fan of Kristen Proby's With Me series I was all over Easy With You and I love that she tied the With Me series with her new Boudreaux Series, basically bridging them together. I haven't had time to read the first book in the Boudreaux series but I didn't feel lost at all jumping into this book. Two people who meet my accident and share a passionate night are reunited and thrust back together when a murder investigation turns pers

A must read for any Proby fan. This crossover is everything you want and more. A little taste of the With Me series and a full gumbo serving of the Big Easy. This "lovella"with a suspenseful twist will have you speed reading till the end. Asher is hot and Lila is adorable. These two are a perfect fit, even when the twosome becomes three, with the addition of Asher's little girl.

Proby does family best. The interaction between Lila and Asher's daughter was priceless. Asher is a protector and as h

This is a super short, sweet and sexy read. A crossover between Kristen Proby’s With Me in Seattle and Boudreaux series as Asher Smith (Matt’s partner and best friend from Tied with Me) and Lila Bailey (Kate’s best friend from Easy Love) get their HEA.

Asher and Lila meet in New Orleans while Asher is visiting family, they share insane chemistry and have one unforgettable night together before parting ways. Nine months later and Asher is now living in NOLA and is investigating a murder

Asher.... I really liked him in Seattle and was a bit sad for the move but this moving led to a suspense romantic plot. A short one indeed but full of suspense and love.

Easy With You is an interesting mix between romantic suspense, and a sexy, contemporary romance. At just a little over 100 pages, it's a quick and easy read, and can easily be read in one sitting. Based on the introduction to the 1001 Dark Nights, I felt that this story was a good addition, as it makes for a bedtime worthy read.

Not having read the With Me in Seattle Series or any of the prior 1001 Dark Nights novellas before, I wasn't really sure what to

Easy With You was a quick and exciting read. This story was quite the departure from the normal Kristen Proby reads.

Easy With You follows the story of Lila and Asher. Lila and Asher have a chance meeting on a plane where she accidentally falls in his lap. Later, as fate would have it, they once again bump into one another and wind up spending one unforgettable night together. Almost a year has passed and the two of them will once again find themselves together. Lila is a professor at a universit

Super-sweet, no angst, with a murder mystery throughout! Connects both series. Loved the sweetness! (And Casey was a doll!)

Easy read. I really liked Asher and Lila. While I'm a fan of insta-love stories this one was a bit over the top. The murder mystery was silly.

This was a quick read and an insta-love story but enjoyable.
3.5 stars. I enjoyed this more than some of the longer books in the series that follow. I liked the murder mystery aspect too. I wish it had been a full length novel!
