3 Sweet Stars.

After losing her job and boyfriend in the same day, Callie moves back to New Orleans, to take over her late father’s bar. There she meets her “brother” friend, a musician named Declan and both of them are immediately taken aback with each other.
Declan wasn’t looking for anything serious. Callie wasn’t looking for anything at all. But sometimes the best things are the unexpected ones.

I adored the first two books in this series and I was so excited to read sexy musician Declan’s book. Sadly this book did not live up to my expectations.

Spoilers ahead

The editing was really bad, making it difficult to determine time lapses and everything about this romance felt rushed and poorly done. We go from Callie disliking Declan in the first few pages, then suddenly agreeing to a date when he tells her he’s taking her out, them having a good time, intera

Easy Melody is my favourite so far in the Boudreaux series. The romance between Callie and Declan is beautiful.

Callie comes back to New Orleans after she inherits The Odyssey a bar after her father dies, it is a dive so she renovates it with her best friend Adam and re-opens and the place is a roaring success.

Declan is a talented musician who performs at The Odyssey on the weekends and he has been looking forward to the re-opening and getting to know a certain bar owner.

I can't seem to get enough of the Boudreaux family. Easy Melody was again a very easy story to listen to. Declan has been on my mind for a while and I am not surprised that his love interest was going to be strong, independent and very sexy in an original and quirky way.

Easy Melody was very sexy, low on angst and high on family connections. It was very easy to listen to the story and again I think the narrators do a fabulous job. The characters came alive for me and I real

Honestly, I don't even know why I keep reading this series. Ah yeah, only because I want to read Ben and Van's story.
Other than that, this one was terrible! The insta-love was just ridiculous. (view spoiler) Seriously? Where's the build up?!


I really though this was going to be Ben and Van's story. Gah!

It’s official – I’m moving to New Orleans! I cannot stand being separated from the Boudreaux family any longer. With each and every book in the Boudreaux Series I fall more and more in love with these characters…Eli made me drool in Easy Love …Rhys made me swoon in Easy Charm and Declan just rocked my face off.

I need to start by saying that I love the Boudreaux family! This book is the story of Declan Boudreaux, the youngest male sibling.

Declan is a musician, a man who followed his heart and took to the stage while staying local to his family and roots in New Orleans.

Callie Mills is the new owner of one of Declan’s favorite hangouts the Odyssey. Callie became the new owner when her father passed away; the story surrounding Callie and her father pulled at

*Ok, so let me begin by saying this is probably more of a 4 star read for me normally. But there were a couple of things that I related to on a personal level, that I don't think other people will even notice maybe, that bumped it up to 5 stars for me.*

I enjoyed reading Declan and Callie's story so very much. It's a very sweet low angst romance. They are both very good characters and good together. Declan is a musician that performs in local bars around New Orleans. He's been pretty much a playe

Easy Melody is a story that takes us back to New Orleans and this sexy family and a sizzling story where music is the heart....

I truly had a blast with Easy Melody and it was a bit different than the previous books which I really had a blast with. I truly liked how compatible these key players are with each other so without further ado...let's talk!!

I always turn to one of my "go to" one clicks when I am in the mood for just a good old fashioned love story. Kristen Proby has always been a favorite!

This is book 3 in her Boudreaux series...following those New Orlean's siblings. This is Declan's story. He is the sweet, single musical genius. The notorious ladies man can drop the panties with his rhythm and smooth sound. He has embraced his reputation and is unprepared for his new found want and need for the new manager of Odyssey...Callie.

Another sweet read from this series.

Now and then i do like easy romance reading. Low angst, low drama, a lot of insta love. When i found this series from miss Proby it does look promising. I like 2 of other books in the series. But easy melody just fail to attract me.

Everything in this book is like a chocolate cake gone wrong. So wrong that i just want to throw it on garbage and forget about it.
The characters are just wrong and not consistence. The story does not support/ enhance the romance of the characters. So so confusin

The third book of the Boudreaux series brings us the story of Declan and Callie, and it’s trademark
Kristen Proby all the way. Sweet, sexy, funny, and gorgeously romantic with fantastic family and friend dynamics, it’s comfort food in book form, and I really enjoyed it.

I listened to the audio version of this.

Declan is part of the Boudreaux siblings and ready to settle down. He is a musician so has had plenty of willing women in his bed but the one he has his eyes on now may take a little bit more effort to impress.

Callie has seen the way Declan works when it comes to girls and she is definitely a commitment girl. Sure he is cute but if he wants her he has to go all in, exclusivity is a non-negotiable.

It turns out that these two have way more in common than the

Hoootttt oh my goodness. What is it with paint? 😊 🔥👀. I absolutely loved Declan and Callie and I loved how they were both so self assured and so strong and it was amazing listening both of them together. They were so sweet and sexy and honestly, the scenes... 👀 🔥🔥🔥

My goodness though. The tension and just the drama. Oh my it gets to me. I just want them to kiss and make up. But honestly, the make up sex is hot. Like. How do writers write these scenes??

Easy, sweet, sexy book.3,5 stars. I liked the music thing in it. Its a light read. Not a lot of angst. Some stupid misunderstandings but the rest makes up for it.
I love Declan and Callie. Easy Melody is book 3 of the Boudreaux series and still as interesting and enjoyable as the prior two books. I don't know which member of this family I like best. They are all great.
I added the wispersync audible narration to this Kindle book. There were two different narrators for this book. One for Callie's POV and another for Declan's POV. They both did a good job.

This was a pretty good story. I liked Callie and Declan and enjoyed seeing them get together.

Callie is a bright woman that works managing a bar and flipping houses (buying old houses in bad shape and renovating them and selling them for a profit). Callie's mother died when she was young and she was raised by her father who didn't handle losing his wife well. He basically became a functional alcoholic and Callie grew up taking care of him. She moved away for college and never came back

Callie and Declan were pretty cute in this. Their beginning was rocky, since Declan is a known player and after one hot hookup, he friendzoned her. But, he couldn't fight his attraction to her and they start dating pretty quickly. I love Declan's family, the whole Boudreaux clan and that we get to check on the couples from previous books. This book had plenty of romance, some drama, and fluff. The narration was great and it was a nice, quick read. ...more

Easy Melody is another outstanding addition to Kristen’s Boudreaux series! Since Easy Love, I’ve been itching to get my grabby hands on Declan Boudreaux and I’m happy to say he did NOT disappoint. Nor did Callie. I knew going in Dec had his eye on her but Callie gave him a “stay away” vibe. I was glad to see he wasn’t staying away any longer; he set his sights on her and made his move. (On a side note, I think Boudreaux is synonymous with bossy because Declan is Mr. Bossy Pants like his brother, ...more

Fine-tuned with solid family roots, Easy Melody outshines its predecessors to become my favorite of The Boudreaux Series. Declan and Callie will capture your heart with their raw connection, while their seductive side will have you screaming for more.

Declan and Callie's story was hot. They complement each other perfectly. Declan was everything you expected him to be and wore the name Boudreaux well. Callie was sassy and defiantly has the special "something" all Proby heroines possess.
