Easy Fortune (Boudreaux #5.5) by Kristen Proby
The Boudreaux Series—Sexy. Intriguing. Easy.
Sometimes the past is better left behind you…
Lena Turner has spent her life as the outsider. Thanks to her extraordinary gifts, she’s learned to be independent—especially when it comes to men. She’s content to live her life in New Orleans as a schoolteacher, dating casually and dedicated to her small family. Long term is not part of her plan.
Sometimes the past catches up with you…
Leaving Lena behind to pursue his career was the most difficult thing Mason Coulter ever did. He told himself that it was for the best, had even convinced himself that he had only Lena’s best interests in mind. But now, after six long years, he’s back in New Orleans to settle his late eccentric aunt’s estate. All he has to do is get in and out of the city without submitting to the need to see Lena. But to Mason’s dismay, his aunt made other plans.
And sometimes the future and the past collide…
Having Mason walk back into her life is something Lena never saw coming. She could refuse to help him, but she’s never been good at telling Mason no. So she’ll do what she can to get the estate settled and Mason out of her life for good.
At least, that’s the plan. But Mason has plans of his own…
Julie's Review ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Love this author's words!
This surprise novella being no exception - so lovely to get Lena’s story and with Captain America, no less!
Lena was a very sincere person who loved her friends and family with a ferocity that anyone on the receiving end would be more than happy with.
Glad we got a bit more of Mallory - she sounds positively glowing.
I loved how Lena senses Mason at her place of work, and loved how she handled him. He really wasn’t used to Lena’s kind of sass.
They had a fab connection, and I loved the treasure hunt - conniving Auntie Claudia!
They both had deep feelings for one another, and I was cheering them on when they just felt rather than thought.
They made a great couple, and really happy with the turn of events. Hopefully we’ll see more of Lena and Mason in Savannah and Ben’s book.
And I did NOT read the snippet in the back, as I really struggled with Easy Magic (I was convinced I had read it before) but, thankfully, I had only read the prologue.
