Yet another amazing book by this author. I have read every book she has written and I haven't been disappointed yet.
Declan is a musician who isn't looking to settle down. Callie is a badass who is looking to renovate the bar her father left her when he died. When they meet sparks fly but they both fight it...that is until they can't anymore.
The passion and love between these two is intense but it is also amazing in that it is a normal kind of love. Nothing super crazy and over the top just the kind of love that focuses on the little things.
The banter in the book had me cracking up and I love that we got a little taste of the characters from the with me in Seattle series too cause I miss them!
Great book. Can't wait for Charly's story.
In this story you meet Calli Mills. She never wanted to return to New Orleans, but when her father passed away and left her his bar, it was a bittersweet necessity to return. She plans to renovate the bar and do what she does best, make it a success. This includes hiring the talented musician Declan Boudreaux.
Declan Boudreaux can play any instrument he picks up. He enjoys music and loves what he does. He has no shortage of women in his life and keeps things casual in his personal life. He has no intention of settling down, but suddenly is unprepared for his rection to Callie, the owner of the Odyssey. He knows she has every intention of moving on, but will he be able to convince her to stay?
PS- Sebastian York and Rachel Fulginiti continue to be outstanding in the audio version of this book as well. They truly enhance Kristen Proby's work!
Callie Mills just has inherited the Odyssey, her late father’s bar, when her boyfriend of two years breaks up with her. Having no place to go, she decides to stay in New Orleans and renovate her bar, hoping to sell it with a profit. Besides working with her now ex-boyfriend, managing his Denver nightclub, restoring old houses is a passion for Callie. Living with her best friend and co-worker Adam, she meets musician Declan, who performs weekly at the Odyssey. She falls fast and hard for him, but knowing his reputation and what she needs, she tries to keep it just physical.
“I drag my fingers down his cheek and watch his eyes go almost gold with heat. He isn’t the first man I’ve dated since moving back to New Orleans, but he’s the first that I’ve felt any kind of chemistry with. He’s the first who’s actually turned my head, made me smile. Made my body come to life.”
Declan Boudreaux is musician, he loves to preform, playing his music and being on stage. He enjoys women on a regular basis, but he always makes sure they know the score to avoid awkward situations. Declan comes from a rich family, but he likes to work hard, performing every evening at the bars and clubs in New Orleans and working together with other artists. Besides his music, he’s restoring an old mansion he bought, doing most of the work himself. From the moment Declan meets Callie, he feels himself drawn to her.
“Until you, and it’s confused the hell out of me. All I want is a chance to start this over with you. We did it all backwards, and that’s on me. I get it. But damn it, let me try it again, because if you don’t, it’ll be the biggest regret of my life.”
From the moment they meet each other, there’s an instant attraction between Callie and Declan. They easily fall into a routine, hot mind-blowing sex, trips, and Declan introduces Callie to his family. Warned by Adam, Callie tries to keep her emotions and feelings under control – she knows what she wants, and that’s not falling in love with another commitment-phobe. Declan knows he feels something different for Callie, something he hasn’t felt for another woman. Not being used to a relationship, he isn’t good at communicating his feelings – or communicating at all – putting his new relationship with Callie at risk.
Having read the previous books in “The Boudreaux Series”, I enjoyed seeing the characters and city of New Orleans again. I love the big Boudreaux family – how they support both Declan and Callie, and each other – and the way Easy Melody is written. Hints are being given for the next books in the series, and I can’t wait to read them.
“I need your friendship. Your patience. I need my family, even if they are a pain in my ass most of the time.” He smiles. “I need to protect you, keep you safe. And I know this is going to piss you off a little, but I need to take care of you.”
Easy Melody is a sweet and easy read, I’ve enjoyed it. Because of the predictability I give this story 4 stars.
With that being said, the things that Declan does to Callie, reminds me of my husband and myself. The three squeezes is something that my husband and I have done since the day we met 16 yrs ago. We still do it to this day if we are unable to communicate our love for each other. I'm not going to lie, it made me cry happy tears. Hey don't judge me, its a sweet romantic gesture, that I treasure daily.
This audible book was amazing. Rachel and Sebastian did an amazing job with the narration. I will say that I am bummed that the next book isn't slated to come out, but I can assure you I will be stalking the author daily and I will be jumping at the chance to listen to the next book.
Sidebar, I know that Adam gets his story but I am kind of disappointed that him and Savannah are not getting together. It seemed like they had the start of some kickass chemistry. They would have been great for each other.
