5/5 Review: Easy With You by Kristen Proby



Nothing has ever come easy for Lila Bailey. She’s fought for every good thing in her life during every day of her thirty-one years. Aside from that one night with an impossible to deny stranger a year ago, Lila is the epitome of responsible.

Steadfast. Strong.

She’s pulled herself out of the train wreck of her childhood, proud to be a professor at Tulane University and laying down roots in a city she’s grown to love. But when some of her female students are viciously murdered, Lila’s shaken to the core and unsure of whom she can trust in New Orleans. When the police detective assigned to the murder case comes to investigate, she’s even more surprised to find herself staring into the eyes of the man that made her toes curl last year.

In an attempt to move on from the tragic loss of his wife, Asher Smith moved his daughter and himself to a new city, ready for a fresh start. A damn fine police lieutenant, but new to the New Orleans force, Asher has a lot to prove to his colleagues and himself.

With a murderer terrorizing the Tulane University campus, Asher finds himself toe-to-toe with the one woman that haunts his dreams. His hands, his lips, his body know her as intimately as he’s ever known anyone. As he learns her mind and heart as well, Asher wants nothing more than to keep her safe, in his bed, and in his and his daughter’s lives for the long haul.

But when Lila becomes the target, can Asher save her in time, or will he lose another woman he loves?

1001 Dark Nights Kristen Proby’s Easy with You (Bourdeaux 1.5) is excellent!!! Delila is a college professor who runs a study group for her struggling students.  Her students have been dying recently and the police send someone to investigate.  It just so happens to be her last one night stand!  She literally fell in lap and has dreamed about him ever since.  She doesn’t realize that he has been dreaming about her too.  Asher uses the murders as a perfect excuse to keep her close.  He just doesn’t realize the effect that it will have on him and his daughter.  After they get together she becomes attached to his daughter and to him.  For Asher it was never a protection detail, for him it was protecting what was his.  Falling for Delila caught Asher by surprise.  He didn’t think that he would be able to fall in love again after what happened to his wife.  When he realizes that he loves Delila he is even more determined to make sure that she is protected and that he doesn’t lose her like he lost his first wife.  Asher had to find out who was killing Delila’s students before the killer decided that he was going to go after his true target.  The feelings leapt right off the page and I was swept away with Asher and Delila.  I felt part of what was happening and while I had an inkling of who the murderer was, it was still a shock to have it confirmed.  I am going to get book one and continue the series!  It is a must read!
