She’s been proposed to five times.
She even said yes to one of them.
And then broke his heart when she called it off. Not to mention her mother’s heart. And her grandmother’s. And his mother’s. And…you get the picture.
Paige Asher has now officially sworn off all dating. Diamonds give her hives.
All she wants is to be a yoga-doing, cat-collecting, vegetarian in peace. Away from her marriage-crazy family and all their expectations.
So when her weekend fling turns into a real friend and offers her a place to escape, she finds herself on his doorstep in Louisiana. And right in the middle of not just one family wedding, but three. Of course.
Charming, sexy bayou boy Mitch Landry gets stuff done. Whatever anyone needs. From alligator-sitting to getting a buddy drunk to showing a woman a good time to fixing a swamp boat, he’s the man. No problem. No drama.
But he wants a hell of a lot more from Paige than a temporary friends-with-benefits arrangement. He wants to take care of her. And her five cats. He also really wants other men to stop asking her to marry them.
But if a roommate and a few orgasms are all she wants, that’s what he’ll deliver.
He can just be her friend and not commit the greatest sin of all…asking her for forever.

Perfect blend of sweet, sexy and fun!
Oh wow! This was the perfect blend of sweet, fun, sexy and funny! And let’s not forget the otters!! Oh and the weddings! I love that Erin Nicholas did a little series blending for this special couple. Mitch and Paige’s story began in Appleby, Iowa in the Hot Cakes novella Oh Fudge and continues here in this wonderful full length story in Autre,Louisiana in the Boys of the Bayou series.
This turns out to be such an amazing love story for two of the sweetest people. It is also chock full of all the wonderful, fun and charming characters that we’ve come to know and love throughout this series.
Paige’s trip to the bayou for Tori’s wedding and to spend some quality time with Mitch (wink wink) happens earlier than she was planning after one too many proposals. She originally plans to stay for a while before continuing on her journey to have some alone time to find herself. But much to her surprise she ends up finding everything she was looking for right there on the bayou with Mitch and the rest of his loud but loving and accepting family. Mitch is such an amazing man who will do anything for anyone at anytime, no matter what. He is quite smitten with Paige but he knows from the beginning that he has to tread very lightly or he will spook her for sure. Luckily he is a patient man. Their chemistry is through the roof which makes for some hot and spicy times for sure when his family isn’t running interference that is.
I absolutely adore every little thing about their journey to a HEA that is just perfect for them.
What a fabulous story for Paige and Mitch. This book picks up right after Oh, Fudge (but not necessary to read to enjoy this one but why would you not want to read it?!?) and Paige has left Appleby to escape the pressure she feels from her family. Paige shows up on Mitch’s doorstep with her 5 cats in tow....3 weeks before he is expecting her. Mitch is in heaven when he sees her in his kitchen. And can I just say that these two are so freaking cute and sooo hot at the same time. These two do not ever hide their attraction to each other from the other person but they do keep their feelings from each other. Mitch is afraid any show of emotion towards Paige will send her running back to Iowa when what he wants is to keep her in Autre with him.
I was wonderful seeing everyone from Autre and seeing Paige find her way in this big, loud, crazy family especially when what she thought she wanted is the opposite of what she is in the middle of.
It was great to meet Mitch’s roommate, Griffin, who we get more of in a spin-off series- yay! And I will admit I am quite intrigued by Griffin and his grumpy gruffness. I am so happy to be back in the bayou with all of the Landry’s. This book was fabulous and I will admit I wasn’t ready for it to end, I loved Mitch and Paige.
Back to the Bayou
There is not a place in Erin Nicholas world that I don’t absolutely fall in love with. I didn’t think anything would ever replace Sapphire Falls but dang, the Bayou may come close. The way she interweaves the characters makes her fan favorite readers sit just waiting for the next one and the next one, etc. And bringing Mitch Landry to Iowa was a genius idea. But to bring Appleby to the Bayou is above! Do not miss out on this story even if you haven’t met everyone yet. Once you start, you will go back to the beginning and engross yourself. Thanks so much Erin for continuing to rock our worlds….
