SYNOPSIS

WHEN DARKNESS AND LIGHT COMBINE, DESTINED SOULS WILL IGNITE . . .

Connected since childhood.
Two souls: one dark and one pure.
Bracing to take the greatest step of all.

River ‘Styx’ Nash loves his woman. Ever since he met Mae at the fence of the cult that had kept her captive as a child, he has never loved anyone else. He loves her black hair, her pale skin and of course, her ice-blue ‘wolf eyes’.

Since Mae came crashing back into his life, his only wish has been to marry her; finally to make her his wife. But now the wedding is booked, and only weeks from forever having Mae by his side, a lifelong problem is plaguing him.
He wants to marry her; he has never wanted anything more . . .
. . . if only he could speak the words and declare it to the world.

Salome ‘Mae’ Nash’s life had been filled with heartache and pain . . . until, at age eight, she met a strange dark-haired boy from the outside world. Years later, and reunited with her great love, Mae is ready to solder her heart to his. Finally, Mae is getting ready to marry her man. But her fiancé has become withdrawn. Something is deeply troubling him.
But Mae has no idea what.
Or what to do to help.

Can Styx open up and conquer his deepest pain? Or will the infamous Hangmen Mute allow his fears to overcome his love for Mae and watch their much-anticipated wedding crumble to dust?

EASY MAGIC (Boudreaux #5) by KRISTEN PROBY :: REVIEW

Standalone in Series
Can two people so very different possibly find their way to happily ever after?

SYNOPSIS
Family. Responsibility. Stability.

As the co-CEO of Bayou Enterprises, and the eldest of the Boudreaux clan, Beau is the epitome of these. Now that his baby sister Gabby is happily settled down, Beau has moved into the company loft in the heart of the French Quarter to be closer to his office while his own home is built. He doesn’t have time for anything but the family he adores and the company that drives him.

If only the bewitching owner of the herb shop downstairs from Beau’s loft wasn’t so damn tempting.

Mallory Adams is living the life. The good life. The best life for her. After years of hiding who she is, and the gifts she’s been cursed with, Mallory opened her little shop in the French Quarter, offering herbs and lotions for anything from soothing a sunburn to chasing those pesky ghosts New Orleans is known for out of a client’s home. Some call her eccentric, and some say she’s simply odd, and that’s okay with her. She is a bit odd, but in her experience, all of the best people are.

When an old pipe bursts in the loft above her store, flooding her storeroom, Mallory comes face to face with Beau Boudreaux, and she doesn’t need the clairvoyant abilities that have been passed down through generations to know that she’ll never be the same. Beau is her exact opposite; serious, straitlaced. He wears suits for Pete’s sake and probably wouldn’t know the difference between arnica and flaxseed if his life depended on it. But when he touches her, the electricity is through the roof and she’s smart enough to know that a chemistry like theirs doesn’t happen every day.

Can two people so very different possibly find their way to happily ever after?

‘Being touched by Beau is like being touched for the first time in my life, and I never want him to stop.’

Easy Magic was just that. An easy and bewitching read. There are times when we’re in the mood for something light with sweet characters, a book we can easily lose ourselves in and this book delivered in a super cute and sexy way.

We first sampled Kristen Proby’s work back in 2012, when we read her debut novel. It’s been 5 years and quite a few book releases in between and we’ve always been eager to revisit her work. Easy Magic sounded enticing, and the first thing we noticed upon reading it was just how much this author has grown. Wow! We adored her writing in this novel, and loved the concept of the Easy Magic. The otherworldly, ghostly feel with a good helping of romance was right up our alley.

“In the end, isn’t that what we all want? Someone to choose us, to love us, no matter the circumstance?”

Easy Magic was our introduction to the Boudreaux clan and is sold as a standalone in the series. We will admit we worried that we would feel a bit lost, being that is was book five, but we followed the story perfectly thanks to some summarising and catching up noted by the author during the book. We loved the pretence of this story, the otherworldly clairvoyant aspect really grabbed our imagination. We wouldn’t call this a paranormal romance per se though it does definitely have a paranormal aspect attached to it, and the New Orleans setting added to the ambience of the story.

“I’m a handful,”
“I have two hands.”

Beau is the oldest of the Boudreaux family, a big boisterous and very loving family of six grown up children. Since losing their Dad, Beau has relished the role as head of the family, immersing himself in the role of natural protector of his Mum and siblings. He’s a nurturing son/brother, so the family protector aspect comes easily to Beau, though it has come at a cost. The workaholic Beau has put family and work before thinking about settling down with a family of his own.

“Oh, Beau, be careful. I could fall in love with you.”

That is until a curvy, firecracker enters his life. A lady with a very special gift. Well, it’s a sort of gift and curse. Mallory revels in her little shop in the French Quarter selling lotions and natural healing. She’s also known to chat with the odd ghost or two and can read a person’s with just a touch. Beau is instantly smitten with Mallory, and Beau has a gift of his own that attracts Mallory…well, apart from his good looks, charm and sexiness that is. You see, Mallory can’t ‘feel’ Beau’s emotions. Oh she can see when he has lust and want in his beautiful browns but she can’t read him as such, not only that, but Beau provides a calming to Mallory she hasn’t experienced before.

“You’re….”
“I’m?”
“You’re everything.”

Now, there are hocus pocus shenanigans, lots of steam, and wonderful friendships all around this couple. Easy Magic was sweet, not overly dramatic, a bit intriguing and sometimes even a little chilling in the ghostly realm. There is some sweet banter between Mallory, Beau and their family. There were times it could be a little -for want of a better word- cheesy, but overall, it was just what we needed!
