GOING DOWN EASY (Boys of the Big Easy) by Erin Nicholas
Publication Date: August 28, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Hot fling or real thing? There are no Big Easy answers in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Erin Nicholas’s sultry series.
As far as flings go, single dad Gabe Trahan is pretty sure that Addison Sloan is his best bet. Once a month, Addison comes to New Orleans and then…It. Is. On. Until Addison returns to New York, it’s just hot, happily-no-strings-attached sex. And beignets. And jazz. But lately for Gabe, it isn’t nearly enough.
Sure, maybe Addison’s gotten a bit hooked on Gabe. After all, who can resist a guy who’s so sexy, so charming, and so…available? But maybe he’s too available for her right now. Addison’s just moved to New Orleans, and relationships are definitely off the table. Besides, guys always bail when they learn her secret: she’s a single mom.
Only Gabe’s not running. Worse, he’s thrilled. But Addison never signed up for ever-after romance, and Gabe won’t settle for anything less. Now it’s a battle of wills—and when it comes to the woman he’s falling for, Gabe isn’t above playing a little dirty.
I enjoyed this contemporary romance between two single parents, each approaching parenting in different ways. It was real and honest…not to mention super sexy. Gabe and Addison started with a no commitment sexual relationship that grew to so much more. Their struggle to realize that their contented status-quo wasn’t enough, made for a heartwarming story. I also loved their kids, so different but meshing well. My only pause was how fast Addison went from “no way” to “ok, I’m ready”. It seemed unnaturally fast. Other than that, it was a touching and smoking hot romance. I love the people around them and cannot wait for the next book in the series.
