I wish I could give this more than 5 stars because if I wasn't laughing, I had tears in my eyes for the love between Lindsay and Matt. What a great novella to Erin Nicholas' Boys of the Big Easy series. And bonus, you get some Logan and Gabe in the story too! Loved it!!!

If you’ve been following the Boys of the Big Easy, you’ll flip for this holiday novella featuring Lindsey, whose husband is an active serviceman. If you’re new to this terrific group of single parents, this is just the book to whet your appetite for this wonderful series and fill you with holiday cheer. Once the little ones are tucked away with a movie night and snacks, the adults break out the spiked punch and the ladies, especially, enjoy a visit from a scorching hot Santa and his racy gifts. ...more

I have absolutely LOVED this Boys of Big Easy Series! This Christmas Novella was A-FREAKING-MAZING!!!

This is Lindsey’s story, a mom with a military husband, Matt. Lindsey is in the single’s support group that has been involved in all the stories and all the relationships in this series, even though she is not “single”, she is still thrown into single parenting with Matt being deployed and gone so often. The friends she has found in this single’s group have a Christmas party, and that is where t

Erin Nicholas made me cry. She has written such an emotionally beautiful story in her latest Boys of the Big Easy series, Eggnog Makes Her Easy. The love between the two main characters, Lindsey and her career Army husband Matt is heartwarming. The Army takes Matt away from Lindsey and their two little boys, Liam and Aidan for months at a time but Lindsey doesn't resent being left alone to care for the boys. She loves Matt so much that if staying in the Army makes him happy, then Lindsey is happ ...more

The book is done and out with early reviewers! One of them told me that she loved it as a Christmas story but also loved that it was a tribute to military families. That made my entire WEEK. That was just what I was going for. I'm in awe of soldiers and their families and all they do for us, so really wanted that to come through in the story. So excited for readers to read Matt and Lindsey's story!

4.5 Stars

This was such a fun, emotional and unexpectedly hot novella. It’s an awesome nod to those who are serving our country and the families that are holding down the fort back at home.

I loved the way that Matt surprised Lindsey and the experience of seeing them both with their kids and family, packing in as much time together as they could.

Don’t even get me started on how I’ll never be able to look at eggnog in the same way and what a pleasant, steamy surprise that whole scene was!!

I absolutely loved this holiday novella by Erin Nicholas. Eggnog Makes Her Easy is part of the Boys of the Big Easy universe, following single parents in New Orleans who happen to find love.

Lindsey LaSalle is a happy mom to two boys she adores. She's technically not a single mom, since she's also happily married to Matt, a career soldier who is doing his utmost to serve and protect as he feels called to do. That doesn't mean that she doesn't struggle at times with feeling lonely or worried or ju

There are times when I am writing a review that I truly wish I were an author. I say this because most authors have a unique talent of put their thoughts and feelings beautifully and eloquently in their words. I really wish I had that ability to do so with this emotional, sexy, steamy, moving novella.

Erin not only gives us a spirited, sexy Christmas novella to her Boys of the Big Easy series, she also touches our hearts with her moving reflection of the emotional toll our brave military and fam

Absolutely adorable!!! And sexy!! And sweet!! And steamy!! And heartwarming!! I could just stop there! Gah! It was amazing!! Erin Nicholas, how do you do it? I will never look at eggnog the same way again.
I love that I read this on Veterans Day and Matt is in the military and I didn't even plan that. His dedication to his service is so admirable and made me think of all of those men and women I know in my own life who give up so much for us. I also love that this is about a married couple with

Sweet and spicy make for an irresistible treat. Nicholas keeps her winning streak going with an addictive stroll down Lonely Hearts Way and onto Temptation Boulevard with Eggnog Makes Her Easy. The heat is on.

This series just keeps getting better and better. The single parents group is finding love all over the place but for Lindsey, it’s a place to talk about what troubles she has acting as a single parent while her husband, Matt is in the army overseas. This Christmas will be different since Matt has decided to surprise her and his boys for a well deserved leave.
I love seeing those welcome home videos. They always make me tear up every stinking time. This book has that same feel. Of course with a

I loved, loved, loved this holiday novella! I must confess that I am a sucker for all things Christmas so getting a chance to read an advance copy of Eggnog Makes Her Easy was a real treat for me. I really enjoy the books in the Boys of the Big Easy series and this sweet novella is no exception.

I can honestly say this series gets better and better with each book. Erin does it again with a short novella with the single parents we love best. Leave it to Erin to put out a Christmas novella that highlights military family’s and all they go through and the strong men and women in these relationships. I wasn’t sure how I would feel about Lindsey because of the last book but I should know Erin would make me love her. I would love to be as strong and independent as Lindsey is. Her and Matt are ...more

This is a touching military Christmas story that will melt your heart. I loved Lindsey and Matt’s relationship. The support they gave each other was phenomenal. You can see their love for each other and their family in everything they do. I have never been around military families, and this opened my eyes some to what they go through around Christmas and other holidays. I see how important it is for them to have wonderful friends and family around for the families that stay state side. I strongl ...more

Wow! I can't say just how much I love this story. Lindsey and Matt are an amazing couple. Lindsey is a strong and independent woman, with a huge heart of gold. I'm not sure I could have been as generous or understanding or giving of my husband as she is. I'm certain I would have cried a lot more and been a bit miffed about the amount of time we had together before he had to leave again after already being gone for 7-8 months. I fully understand and appreciate her sacrifice, and that of others in ...more

What a great Christmas novella and addition to the Big Easy series. All our favorite characters are in the book but this novella centers on Lindsey and Matt as well as their boys. Matt is serving overseas in the Army but Lindsey stays in NOLA with the boys. Matt and Lindsey have a special relationship and the characters are developed very well. I loved these two characters and hope we get to see more of Matt in the future.

This was a super fun way to start the holiday season. I usually don’t read Christmas books until after Thanksgiving but I have gotten so attached to the Trahen’s and this new group of friends that I couldn’t wait. And I am so glad I didn’t...

Eggnog will never be the same now. Meeting Lindsay in the earlier books just gave a little glimpse of her specialness. And the picture of the Naughty Santa whetted my appetite for the story. What a story it was!!!! All the feels, all the tears and all the st

The NOLA series by Erin Nicholas is amazing! Each story is a standalone But collectively they make so much more. The single parent group that is at the core of the series is so real and gritty and down to earth. This book we are blessed to meet Matt who is on a surprise leave with his ‘single mom’ wife. You can feel the love, heat and chuckles in each page!

Being both prior military, and an ex military wife, I always go in to romance reads about military couples being a bit wary. Erin Nicholas went above and beyond my expectations with this book!

From the very start of this book, she had me drawn in. It’s such a fun, happy read with a few tear jerker moments added in. Matt and Lindsey are perfect together. I loved their reunion, and good lord, the sex scenes had my kindle overheating. Matt will have you yearning to be on Santa’s naughty list in no

Erin Nicholas’ Boys of the Big Easy is a series that centers on a single parents group in New Orleans. The members of the group are all single parents for a number of reasons some because they lost a loved one, some because of divorce, some because they were named guardians when a family member died, and some because their spouse works away from home often. This book centers around Lindsey whose husband is career Army and has spent more time away from her and their boys than home. This is a stor

I rarely give novellas 5 stars because there is usually not enough time to get to know the characters or feel the connection between them. But you'll notice the 5 stars on this one, and I would give it more if I could. I think I cried through half of it--but in a good way. It starts off funny, then it gets super hot, and then it gets so emotional. I felt like this was a beautiful representation of what service families sacrifice for our country.

Wow! What an absolutely amazing story. For a novella Eggnog Makes Her Easy sure gave me all the feels. This short story sure packed a lot of punch. I don't know how Erin managed to write such a comprehensive story with so much emotion and love in a novella length story but it was beyond amazing to me. It was fun, sweet, and sexy. It also made me feel ultra grateful to all our military men and women who serve our great nation. Reading about how torn Matt was about doing his duty and being with hi ...more

We hear the story about how they met and the deep love and affection that they share. Matt goes off and protects the world from the bad guys while Lindsey stays at home and takes care of thei
