REVIEW: Easy Nights by Kristen Proby

Easy Nights (Boudreaux, #6) by Kristen Proby

No one said change was easy…

Savannah Boudreaux knows what it is to hurt. To bleed. To be afraid that the man she’s promised to be true to until “death do us part” might in fact separate them far sooner than anyone had ever anticipated. But Van also knows what it is to survive. To move on. To live life to the fullest. With five brothers and sisters and a loving mother as her constant source of strength during the pain and the healing, Van realizes there is little else she needs. 

But some things never change… 

Benjamin Preston sat on the sidelines of the Boudreaux family for years, in love with a woman he couldn’t have. As the best friend of the Boudreaux brothers since childhood, Ben has seen both tragedies and joys in the family. And as a former MMA fighter and Krav Maga expert, Ben’s used to fighting for what he wants—and winning. His hands were tied when Savannah married her high school sweetheart not long after graduation, but now two years have passed since Ben found Savannah broken in her own home.

Sometimes what you need most has been right in front of you the whole time…

Van’s convinced that happiness isn’t in the cards for her, no matter how right it feels to be in Ben’s strong arms—and his bed. Ben is determined to win her heart and fight for her trust. He’s promised to protect her, to be her friend. But more than anything, he wants to finally make her his, and this is one fight he’s not willing to lose. 

Julie's Review

An emotional, yet uplifting friends-to-lovers story. Did the author save the best til last? Not sure! I think they have all played an equal part in the Boudreaux story. I loved that we got all of them in each of the stories, how all of them had important roles within the family.

We knew that Savannah had escaped from a bad marriage, and was getting on with her life, not knowing that Ben had as many feelings for her as she did for him.

I'd always loved how sassy Van was, but her strength was one of her best assets. She'd been as far down as life could put you, but with the love and strength her family provided, she bounced back, literally.

We knew Ben was an important and integral part of her life, and he certainly had her very best interests at heart.

I loved their interaction throughout the other Boudreaux books and this was no exception. They were so relaxed around each other, they had been friends for a long time, but once their hearts were working together, it was a lovely union.

Savannah had overcome an abusive ex-husband and, when things started to get weird, you just knew bad news was coming.

I was most certainly surprised as to who it was and that they thought they would get away with such odd behaviour, even with Savannah taking drastic measures to ensure everyone's safety, did I agree? NO but I think I would have done the same. She certainly had balls, that one! 

It's sad to see the end of this fabulous series, and I loved the epilogue with Daddy Boudreaux's presence.

Great series, great characters, and here's to them all having a very happy ever after.
