Holy cuteness, Batman! This book had it all; the adorable little girl, the smoldering heat between her mom and the hot bartender, and the bit of suspense that kept me on the edge of my seat. The relationship that Sarah's daughter had with Adam, though, that was everything this book needed. It took it from a sweet common romance, to a fantastic story that melted my ovaries.

Adam is the bartender that we met in Easy Melody that now co-owns The Odyssey with Callie. He's your typical hot guy bartend

For those of you that, like me, read all of Kristen Proby’s books, or in particular, the Boudreaux series, we know Adam as being Callie’s (Easy Melody, book 3) partner and bartender on Odyssey, their popular bar on New Orleans’s French Quarter.
He is the typical playboy bartender, and makes no apologies for it. The only permanent attachment he sees in his life is the bar, where he worked most of his life and always loved. Although he professes that he isn’t a ‘settling down’ kind of guy, lately h

"You're so fucking sexy. You make me crazy."

This book was pretty great and I enjoyed it very very MUCH. Because let's face it's Kristen Proby who is amazing! I like her books and she writes really H.O.T scenes that will melt your panties and make you tingle in some unknown parts of your body. What else do you need...???

As a fan of Kristen Proby, I love reading her stories since they are always so sweet, sexy, and full of heart. And in her newest installment to the Boudreaux Series, Ms. Proby once again reminded me why the south is known for it’s Southern charm in Easy For Keeps.

In this quick, sweet and charming novella, Ms. Proby transforms a bonafide playboy to a committed man. And if you have been following my reviews, then you are all aware that I

I enjoyed this one. It was SUPER short, and VERY insta-love. Both characters were likable, and the kid was adorable.

I could have done without the tip toe through Adam's past sexcapades at the beginning of the book. I don't know why authors do this? You can tell me he is a man-whore. I don't mind a good man-whore, but I don't need details and OW that he can't remember fucking in my face right at the start of the book. It takes away from the H/h's story.

We met Adam the sexy bartender in Easy Melody this is his time to meet the woman of his dreams plus a little lady.

Sarah is a single mum to five year old Hailey and they are having a bad morning and Adam comes to her rescue and is a Good Samaritan. There is instant chemistry between them and Sarah takes a chance and has a one night stand with Adam.

One night is not enough for either of them so they start dating spending time as a couple and as a trio with little Hailey who is so adorable

Adam Turner was one of the few interesting things about Easy Melody. He’s a total manwhore, prefers his sex without strings and makes sure all the women knows it. So of course I wanted to know who the woman was going to be that makes him change his ways… ;-)

Sarah Cox has just moved to New Orleans. It’s been three years since her husband died, and it’s just her and her daughter against the world. She loves her work as a social worker, it can be dangerous but it’s al

Don't hurt me, but I've NEVER read any of the Boudreaux Series by Kristen Proby! I know! It's ridiculous! I really have no good excuse either. I mean, I LOVE her writing style so damn much! I think completely devouring EASY FOR KEEPS has given me the motivation to get my ass in gear and start the series. There is no more putting it off. Simply put...I NEED MORE!

Oh Adam and Sarah, how I love thee...seriously! These two were EVERYTHING together! Their smoldering hot chemistry was the main driver o

4 _ "I'm not going anywhere..." Stars!

Enjoyable, albeit expensive (if you take into account the page count) addition to the series. I liked Adam in Easy Melody so it was good too read his happily ever after. Slight continuity blip with this as well, and he introduced Sarah in the previous book as his girlfriend.

I think this one had the legs to be longer to be honest, but still an enjoyable couple of hours reading.

3.5 stars!

Another short, sweet and sexy read from Kristen Proby’s Boudreaux series, this time giving us the story of Adam – best friend and business partner of Callie from Easy Melody.

Adam is part-owner of The Odyssey, a popular bar in the French Quarter, and he enjoys every moment of his single lifestyle – doing what he wants, when he wants, and with no desire to change anything. And then Sarah and her adorable 6-year-old daughter fall into his life, and he finds himself unable to stay away

There is nothing as fun as watching a carefree playboy meet the one woman who makes him decide to give up his man-whoring habits. EASY FOR KEEPS is a great addition to the series because it contains the sweetness, humor and sexy times that we've come to expect from Ms. Proby, but what I enjoy most about Ms. Proby's books is the low angst level.

Adam Turner is an equal opportunity lover of women and very unapologetic about it, but even he draws the line at getting involved with a single mother and

Author Kristen Proby offers up another smart, sexy and charming book in her 1001 Dark Nights Boudreaux novella, Easy for Keeps. At first I was a little put off by the heroine, but after learning her history it was easy to see that she was one tough, capable and self sufficient woman and she felt a man in her life wasn't a necessity. So big surprise when a sexy Good Samaritan turns this single mom's head. I loved their banter, their wickedly s

I absolutely adore the easy, charming way that Kristen Proby brings readers into her stories and shares her characters and her plot lines – components that do more than paint romantic images – they shed light on life lessons and teach the importance of family, of love, of the limitless strength people are capable of when life throws chaos into their life.

Easy For Keeps – it’s quite the contradictory title because keeping anything is far from easy, but it also indicates that even when people aren
Easy For Keeps was a pretty fun audio to listen to. I really liked getting to know Adam in this one. His friendship with Callie was cute but I really wanted to know more about Sarah. Luckily for me, myself, and I - he wanted to know her more too!

Adam and Sarah were adorable. They were so into each other which made me smile. Sarah, poor girl, has been in a dry spell. So when Adam comes in.. it's like the gates are finally opening and a tsunami might come (lol).

This was a pretty good story. It was a bit short but I liked Adam and Sarah (and Hailey) and liked their story.

Sarah is a social worker that just moved to New Orleans for a new job and a change of scenery. Sarah grew up in Miami and married her high school sweetheart. Unfortunately, her sweetheart became a cop who got killed on the job and Sarah became a widow with a daughter, Hailey, to raise on her own.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely. The story is awesome. This is the kind of romance I always want to read. The guy who thinks he doesn’t want a relationship, the girl who thinks she doesn’t have time for a relationship because she’s only focused on her family and her job, and then, they meet and all their priorities chan
This is one of my favorites of the Boudreaux series so far --full length novels included! I really liked Adam when we met him in Easy Melody as Callie's best friend and the bartender at the Odyssey so I was hoping we'd get to see his love story since he was so anti-relationship. I love how Sarah and her daughter just come out of nowhere and he couldn't get enough. He was there and didn't freak out about commitment or anything and it was just natural and so cute.

When I pick up a book by Kristen Proby, I know I am in for perfection and the best ride that romance offers. I fell in love with this author a long time ago with the With Me In Seattle series and since then, I haven't looked back. This newest novella in the Boudreaux series by this author just reminds me why she is one of my very top favorite authors.

Easy for Keeps was the perfect blend of romance, steam, sweetness, and passion. This is one of those books that you can't read just once. O

I have so thoroughly enjoyed this series and when I eventually found this addition to it I just had to leap at the chance. This book featuring with a staff member, Adam Turner of The Odyssey. The most ever popular New Orleans hang out in the city. How simply he is just a complete playboy.

Adam is gorgeous and I'd quite loved by the women in town too. Especially when Callie Boudreaux, the co -owner of this establishment decided the times for closing. He just wasn't pleased at all! After meeting a

I'm so excited that Adam got his story! I was intrigued with him from the other books in this series. This is a great novella with all sorts of swoon worthy scenes that Kristen is a pro at.

My heart broke for Sarah and what she had gone through. I'm so glad Kristen wrote her as a strong woman and a fantastic single mother. That made me very happy.

Adam, my sexy bartender. An amazing friend to Callie, sexy ladies man. When he commits he goes all in and it's so so good.
