The Boys of the Big Easy is a fantastic series, but holy hot firehose, Nicholas has really pulled out all the stops on this one! Hot, hilarious, and heartfelt, this one grabbed me tight and wouldn’t let go. You definitely need to meet our hero, Caleb. Lieutenant Caleb Moreau is used to barking out orders, saving people from burning buildings and being the man with all the answers. But when Mr. “Overprotective, Over-Reactive, Always-Has-To-Be-the-Fixer” finds someone he loves in a situation he ca ...more

➳Single parents who support each other, but the attraction is way too strong, Caleb and Lexi are the ideal couples to be read about in this sweet, and dominant romance novel...

➳Reading this novel's synopsis is what truly drew me in. There is no denying that my weak spot for single parents is one , especially for single dads is high on the ranks. And when I was contacted about this beauty I could not pass along the chance of one) reading a new author, and two) getting on the scoop that is Caleb

She fell in love and dragged him kicking and screaming along the way. At it's most tempting Nice and Easy is a showstopper. Nicholas brings her classic wit, sizzling sex appeal and abundance of heart to a romance that is hard to resist. Caleb and Lexi are learning about life, love and family in often times hard, many times heartbreaking, yet always heartwarming ways. Add in a precocious four year old and mischievous two year old and you get a lovable glimpse into the heart of what family is.

Erin Nicholas books are why pizza delivery, sick days, Amazon Prime/Google Shopping Express, and "talk to the hand" can be your best friends.

Make sure you have all of those on speed dial before you pull Nice and Easy up on the e-reader because you're going to want to make full use of them so you can enjoy every delicious page of book three in Ms Nicholas's Boys of the Big Easy series, following single parents in New Orleans who happen to find love.

Oh boy! This was an amazing story. It was fun, sweet, and most likely the sexiest and kinkiest story Erin Nicholas has written and I loved every minute of it! I don't know what else to say that won't spoil the story. Caleb was sexy but had a major hero complex that almost got him into trouble. Lexi was a surprise. I absolutely loved her character. She was strong and so sweet and she was good at making Caleb hot. She totally owned her sexual desires. The sexual chemistry between these two were co ...more

Nice and Easy (The Boys of the Big Easy series) is another one of those fantastic books that you can’t put down, but then have withdrawals within an hour of finishing it. SIGH…

21 year old year old single mom, Lexi Scott has been in love with single dad, Caleb Moreau since she began babysitting for him when he acquired his little niece, Shay, after Shay’s parents died in a car accident. Caleb is a few years older than Lexi, so he has been pushing his feelings aside…until now. But ER nurse, Lexi,

This newest installment of the Boys of the Big Easy series does not disappoint! This was an amazing story. It was fun, sweet with some unexpected kink and I loved every minute of it.

Erin Nicholas has done a beautiful job with Lexi and Caleb, and their story is a pleasure to read. Their transition from friends/roommates to lovers is both sweet and unbelievably hot, and I loved them as a couple.

Va-va-va-voom! Caleb and Lexi's story is so sexy! I love that they kept trying to hide their attraction to one another but everyone saw it...except them of course! When a drunken night leads to loose lips, those feelings come to the surface. I loved seeing all the other guys from the Big Easy make multiple appearances and even some hints of what's to come on the Bayou!

Erin Nicholas always knocks it out of the park for me and this is no exception!

This friends to lovers, single parents romance was really something special. Caleb and Lexie are simply wonderful characters. Lovable, relatable and realistic, they could easily be a friend of yours, a family member, an acquaintance or even yourself. They are complex and their simmering attraction sizzles. I admired and sympathized with these characters. They had the strength, intelligence and maturity to not only survive what twists life threw at them but to thrive.

Note to self: Two single parents... Most likely to involve lots of parenting.

Also, I read Chapter 1 and disliked that the hero had f*ck buddies while lusting for the heroine all this time. He only realizes that he has to claim her when he sees her with some other guys. Typical as*hole!

Chapter 1:

Hot and Steamy in the Big Easy
Warning! This book may leave you needing some quality time with a cold shower...or alternative means of cooling off . This entry in Erin Nicholas' Boys of the Big Easy series is the steamiest one ventures outside my comfort zone, but was lots of fun to read, none the less. As with all the books in the Boys of the Big Easy series, Nice and Easy is set in New Orleans, and features single parents. Caleb, a (very hot) firefighter, suddenly became a father when

I love this series. The Boys of the Big Easy is a series about faith, hope, love, commitment, second chances, friendship, loyalty and so much more. The story lines and characters are down-to-earth, realistic and heartwarming. This book is no different. Nice and Easy might be my favorite, so far. It is so sweet and it's pretty realistic. It is by far the most decadent of the stories, if you catch my meaning.

I loved how Caleb had to switch gears from being Lexi's protector to seeing her as his equal.
Lexi is a great example of someone who had a baby young but applied herself to grow and mature into a wonderful parent.

Wow! Nobody blends heat and heart like Nicholas! This book took my breath away in more way than one. When you contrast the caring of a woman who is a mother and a nurse with the need to give up control in the bedroom, you've got a fantastically interesting character. When you match that woman with a man who isn't sure he can give her what she wants in the bedroom, but who loves her enough to have a winner of a relationship. Nicholas tossed in two adorable kids, mixed it all up and came ...more

This is such an easy, friends to lovers, single parents story, that of course have some steamy hot scenes in it.

What do you get when you pair a bossy, dominant and maybe a little arrogant man with a sweet, submissive, and sometimes badass woman? Well if you want to find out just read this story and find out, you will not regret it.

I loved Lexi from the beginning. She is a sweetheart who knows who she is and what she wants but at the same time isn't that take charge ballbusting woman. Bu

Sweet, tumultuous and a little kink

This is the story I've been waiting for! Somehow we also got blessed with the series' hottest covermodel so far, so I'm thinking it's a win.

We've met brooding firefighter Caleb, single dad to his niece Shay, and Lexi, single mom to Jack and a few years younger, in the other books in the series. I love how their story let's them evolve and figure out their relationship, how they feel and how everything fits together. Or if they fit at all in the real world. Cal

Caleb is raising his 4 year old niece after his sister and he husband were killed in a car crash. He's a lieutenant with the fire department and the fires he helps fight aren't the only thing that's hot.

Caleb & Lexi have had each other’s back for a long time. Caleb is a single, hot firefighter single handedly raising his niece after her parents were killed in an accident. Lexi is a sexy, young single mother raising her son after the father “poofed”. They are members of a single parent group & have worked out an arrangement for watching each other’s kids. Now, they both want the relationship to change & deepen but they each have concerns.

I really enjoy the fact that they don’t seem

I loved this book and I loved Caleb and Lexi together. They were a perfect couple and family. They both brought to the relationship what the other needed. Yet it took them or more importantly Caleb awhile to realize this. Even though Lexi was several years younger than Caleb she was much more mature than he at first gave her credit for. But I think it was more of him keeping a blind eye to it and wanting to be the one to take care of her.
I will say one thing though about Caleb- he is an excellen

NICE AND EASY (Boys of the Big Easy #3) by Erin Nicholas is another smokin’ hot contemporary romance which makes you want to travel down south and try to grab one of these boys for yourself.

Nice & Easy was a seriously sweet, romantic, & HOT book! I love that Caleb & Lexi have this great coparenting friendship that turns into so much more! They both work hard at giving each other what they need to be happy, and they do it while being awesome “single” parents. I enjoyed the secondary characters and will definitely be looking forward to (& going back) reading the others books!

Caleb and Lexi were incendiary! These two were so determined to ignore the chemistry for so long, but they definitely lit it up when Caleb goes all alpha and moves her in. The love these two have for their kids is awesome. Co-parenting was working for them, but being partners in every sense worked for them even better! This series has been wonderful, and I cannot wait for more of these guys.

I am so in love with Caleb. And Lexi of course. The two of them have been co-parenting for a while now. They met in a single parents group and found their busy work schedules were opposite so that they could watch each others kids. Perfect, right? It doesn't hurt Caleb that Lexi has a little crush on Caleb. And Lexi gets taken care of by Caleb. He does little things for her like fixing her car. When her mother moves away and Lexi needs a safe place to live, Caleb swoops in again to save Lexi. Li ...more
