Another amazing story. I love the Boys of the Big Easy series!
I love this series. The Boys of the Big Easy is a series about faith, hope, love, commitment, second chances, friendship, loyalty and so much more. The story lines and characters are down-to-earth, realistic and heartwarming. This book is no different. Nice and Easy might be my favorite, so far. It is so sweet and it's pretty realistic. It is by far the most decadent of the stories, if you catch my meaning.
Caleb is a lieutenant with the Fire Department and a single dad, sort-of. His sister and brother-in-law died in a car accident, leaving their 18 month old daughter, Shay, in his custody. He did his best but, when everything got to be too much, he found a single parents group filled with people that quickly became his second family. With all the stress and chaos in his life, he finds comfort in controlling things. He needs to provide, care and protect others, especially Shay, Lexie and little Jack, to feel he's doing the right thing. To prove he's not a failure.
Lexie's a beautiful person, inside and out. She sweet, generous and kind to everyone. When her son's father decided he couldn't be burdened with her or their child, she found herself alone as a single mom with a newborn at 18. She joined the group a month after Caleb, the sexy, single, firefighter.
After meeting, the two quickly realized the value in having someone to share the responsibilities with. They agreed that Lexi would watch the kids while he works, and he would watch them while she works and goes to school. They shared the child care, chores, cooking and shopping duties. This system worked well for over two years. However, Lexie has secretly, or maybe not so secretly, harbored a crush on Caleb for the entire time. Caleb has also tried to keep his feelings and desires for her to himself, believing that it was wrong because of the age difference. When Lexie finds herself needing a new place to live, Caleb convinces her to move in with Shay and him. Living in the same house has brought their feelings bubbling to the surface and now they have to learn to navigate a new set of rules.
I just love this story, this series, and I can't wait to read the next book, Getting Off Easy! Well done to the author.
Caleb and Lexi were incendiary! These two were so determined to ignore the chemistry for so long, but they definitely lit it up when Caleb goes all alpha and moves her in. The love these two have for their kids is awesome. Co-parenting was working for them, but being partners in every sense worked for them even better! This series has been wonderful, and I cannot wait for more of these guys.
