Sigh...I just don't know.

I don't even know what to say about this book! I wanted to love it so hard because I usually adore Kristen Proby's books, but this one was only meh for me. I liked the characters and their story was good but it didn't have that "wow" factor for me, and frankly left me confused on how I actually felt about it.

Beau and Mallory were okay characters individually, but together I just didn't see the chemistry that I always look for in a KP book.

Usually I know when my favorite books will be released, but with Easy Magic it was a total surprise. I had no idea it was going to be released in April and of course I put aside every other book and began this one. I love the Boudreaux family and I consider every story to be special. Well, this one topped them all.

I have to make a confession. I am dying for Savannah and Ben's story and when I saw that it will be Beau's instead , I was a little disappointed. Not that I don't like Beau, but this t

Finally Beau and Mallory are here!!! Can’t believe Easy Magic, one of my most anticipated release this year – actually, since the very first book in the series – is live!

Easy Magic was just that, pure romantic and passionate MAGIC from the very first word to the last. Kristen Proby gave me everything I had been hoping and dreaming for these two and a hell of a lot more! It was perfect in every delicious Cajun way!

We know Beau from the very first book of this series, as the oldest of the Boudreau

This book was a nice surprise for me.

I've been loving this series since the beginning and I loved all the Boudreaux family and how they found their HEA and their family got even bigger.

"Easy Magic" is Beau's book! He is the oldest brother and protector of the family. For him everything are black or white, so when Mallory comes in his life with her secret abilities he is thrown back, but that doesn't keep him from getting to know her and pursue something more.

An enchanting and bewitching romance that was a blend of sweetness, magic, and lots of passion!!! Kristen Proby is no stranger to hot sexy contemporary romance and so in her newest release, Easy Magic, she brews up a love story that will easily charm and spellbound you with Beau Boudreaux and Mallory Adams.

Mallory Adams has a gift. She is an empath, a clairvoyant, and a medium. So in order words, Mallory is special and comes from a lineage
A bewitching and passionate romance...easily my absolute FAVORITE of the series! Kristen Proby weaves romance and magic to create something truly special and touching with Beau and Mallory's story. Alluring, sexy, and absolutely charming, EASY MAGIC took me by surprise and held me captive the whole way through. Passionate, emotional, and utterly ADDICTING! Be ready to SWOON over Beau and Mallory's epic love story!

“You have no idea how important you’ve come to be to me, and I don’t know how to explain it.”

I loved Mallory Adams and how different she was. Her abilities brought an element of paranormal to this series which I greatly enjoyed. She comes from a family of strong empaths, mediums and psychics. Mallory has always tried to hide who she really was, especially after her grandmother died when she was just sixteen when an evil someone invaded her mind while she was trying to find missing girls.

I freaking loved this book! Not only do you have panty melting hot, charming, protective and filthy rich, Beau Boudreaux, and sweet, sassy, essential oils/lotions/candles, and such French Quarter shop owner, Mallory falling in love; she is a psychic medium! I LOVE THAT! Kudos to KP introducing the paranormal into her contemporary series.

Likable hero, nice heroine, safe.

However, I didn’t quite get the paranormal/suspense part…
But don’t let me irritate you!

Easy Magic is a book whose hero, I have been waiting for…. you know… a secondary character in a series you love, the character who needs his match… and then WOW, he exceeds your expectations! That was this book for me! Beau Boudreaux was everything I hoped he would be and MORE!

I want to make sure to note the title of the book so perfectly matches the story inside.

I have to say that I am getting a kick out of this Boudreaux family and even though I have had a blast I am also kinda sad that this series is close to being fully read because I just don't want to let this family go!! So in Easy Magic, we get Beau as our hero and I will be honest, h

No brainer on this. Easy Magic is a definite 5 star read

Awww I adored this book so so much.

I was so hoping the next in the series was going to be Van's book. And was sort of disappointed when it was announced it was Beau's instead.... But ya'll... After starting this one, I couldn't have asked for a better book. and I think it went in the exact order it should have.

Because let me just tell you... This book was absolute perfection.

Kristen Proby is a favorite of mine, because I know when I pick up a book by her, I am not going to be disappointed. I know I am going to laugh, there will be characters I enjoy, that there will be sexy times that are hot and also bond the characters and move the story forward.

Beau and Mallory, not surprisingly, did not disappoint. Beau is the straitlaced older brother, the one who feels it is his job to keep an eye on everything. This translates

I feel like a part of the Boudreaux clan. This latest installment is Beau and Mallory's story. I think part of the reason I like these stories is partly because these characters are mature and in their mid-late thirties. They don't create angst just for its own sake and they've been there, done that.

Beau is a confirmed bachelor who is a little betwixt by his tenant Mallory. she is gorgeous and independent but has a little mystery about her. That's where the magic in the title comes from. Mallor

Ok I think this book is my favorite of the series, and I haven’t even gotten to Van’s book yet and that is the book I am most looking forward to!

I really liked Mallory and the medium kind of thing she has going on empath all of that. I loved that she just accepted who she was even if she does close herself off from it too. I don’t know if that makes much sense but it’s how I felt.

As the series has progressed Mallory has interacted with the other characters and formed a tentative friendship with the Boudreux women.

I didn't hated it but i didn't really like it either.
It was too sugary sweet and it took me some time to feel the chemistry.
I thought the paranormal part was OTT especially when it doesen't add up with the story.
I actually don't mind reading paranormal (i love it) and even in stories set in the "real" word it's always nice to read a little about magic but here i was just "whaaaaat ?".

Anyway it was easy to read and quick but my bitchy self is not happy with books lately ^^
