This was a good story. I liked both Gabby and Rhys and their story was enjoyable overall.
Gabby is the youngest of the many Boudreaux siblings. Her family is wealthy and owns ship building business but Gabby didn't want to take part in the business. Instead, Gabby opened a bed & breakfast at the family plantation house. Gabby has a son, Sam, that she had at the age of 19 and has been raising on her own since the father wanted her to have an abortion.
Rhys is a professional baseball player that's not playing for the rest of the season because of an injury. Rhys is the cousin of Kate, the heroine from book #1. Rhys and Kate were raised like siblings because Rhys' parents were killed at an early age and he was raised by Kate's parents. Rhys was a playboy when he was a rookie but lost interest in all that years ago and has been concentrating on his career lately.
Because of his injury, Rhys has a leave from playing baseball for the rest of the season to give him time to heal up. He's close to Kate and wanted to be near her (she just moved to New Orleans to be with Eli) so she suggested he stay at Gabby's bed & breakfast. He agrees and he's quickly enamored as soon as he meets Gabby. It also doesn't hurt that Rhys really likes Sam as well, finding him to be a smart little boy that's pretty good at baseball. Gabby is very attracted to Rhys but hasn't dated much so she does't know how to flirt. Regardless of her inability to flirt, things between Rhys and Gabby go well and quickly turn into a relationship. The relationship progresses nicely but Gabby does have some emotional issues from her past that make her a bit untrusting when it comes to Rhys....which is shown plainly by the drama that shows up towards the end. Thankfully, Rhys had his head on straight and didn't let the drama drive him away so he and Gabby end the story starting a very nice HEA together.
This was an enjoyable story. I liked Gabby for the most part. She was a good heroine but I didn't like her actions/assumptions towards the end of the story. There were "reasons" but I wasn't too hot on the plot device that gave her those reasons either so I wish it had went a different way. Rhys was a really good hero. He may have made a mistake of not being communicative enough but even that I don't fault him for and I really liked him overall. The story was good but it pretty much played out as I expected so it wasn't majorly engaging. I do own the next book in the series so I will be continuing with book #3 next.
* note - I listened to the audio version of this story. There were 2 narrators for this story, a male for the parts from Rhys' PoV and a female for the parts from Gabby's PoV. They both did good jobs.
Gabrielle Boudreaux may be petite, but she is a strong, feisty, take no prisoners kind of a woman. She has to be to run her family's plantation as an Inn as well be the fantastic single mother she is to her son, Sam. She loves her family, her Inn and nothing compares to the love she has for her boy. She takes pride in her work and does her best to make the people who visit the Inn have a memorable experience. Though she has been around her older brothers and men all of her life, nothing could have prepared her for the guest who comes to her Inn to recuperate from an injury.
Rhys O'Shaughnessy's life is baseball. Sure he has had his share of cleat chasers, but he is long past that point of his life. He loves the sport and has been playing for Chicago for the better part of 10 years. When his shoulder injury threatens to take him away from his game, he is determined to recover completely and leave the game on his terms, not by the call of the team doctors. To get the rest he needs, he takes his cousin Kate's suggestion to go to this Inn outside of New Orleans. The last thing he expects to find is a sassy inn keeper and an inquisitive 8 year old who is his biggest fan.
I completely fell in love with the way Kristen Proby writes. I have already downloaded the next book in this incredible series and cannot wait for more!
PS- The audio version of this book is only enhanced by the incredibly talented Sebastian York and Rachel Fulginiti.
Gabby is the youngest of the Boudreaux siblings and she turned the family summer home, a 6th generation plantation home into a bed and breakfast. It was her dream that her family helped make come true. The Boudreaux family is very tight, 6 children, 3 girls & 3 boys and they are extremely protective of each other. This has been particularly true for Gabby, who found herself pregnant at 19 with a birth daddy that high tailed it the moment he found out she was pregnant. Now 8 years later, a professional baseball player walks in her door and ask her to trust him. Can she do it? Or will she let her past destroy her future?
Quite honestly, I ended up like this book better than Easy Love and I didn’t think that was going to be possible. There is something the simple acceptance they had for each other and yet that constant fear that they may just screw this whole thing up beyond repair. The trust and doubt that Gabby had because of her minimal past experience with men in general…that lack of ability to realize that not all men leave.
