Easy Melody (Boudreaux #3)
by Kristen Proby
Narrators: Rachel Fulginiti and Sebastian York
Callie Mills never intended to return to New Orleans and the life she left behind more than a decade ago. There was no need to open old wounds when she had the life she’d worked hard for in Denver. But when she’s fired from her awesome job in Colorado and her father dies, she has no choice but to return home to run the derelict bar left to her in the heart of the French Quarter. Callie must not only face bad memories but turn The Odyssey into something she can be proud of.
And who better to help bring in crowds of people than Declan Boudreaux?
Declan is a sought-after musician who knows he’s good at what he does and loves doing it. Known to pack the house, he also loves women and doesn’t expect to be knocked back a step by the beautiful new owner of The Odyssey. Callie is sharp, gorgeous and funny, and makes him yearn for something he never has before… Commitment.
But when Callie’s able to turn the business around with renovations, making it one of the hottest bars in the Quarter, will she sell out and leave her past behind once and for all, or will Declan be able to convince her that’s she’s where she needed to be all along…in his arms.

Book 3 in the Boudreaux series was a great, simple, and easy read. It flowed great, both in the storytelling and characters. Declan has always intrigued me as the sarcastic, yet quiet and easygoing brother of the Boudreaux family. Loved that he did his own thing and not what others expected of him. That he was a sexy musician didn’t hurt, either...lol.
Callie is a no holds barred business owner who inherited the local bar from her father and needs to decide what to do with it.
The chemistry between Callie and Declan is instant and hot and heavy. However, as Declan is not ready to commit Callie isn’t willing to be just another fling. The decision to be friends is made, and thus a budding relationship begins.
I loved the “being friends” and getting to know each other. Callie has many reservations but I loved that she knew her value and wasn’t willing to let things be “in hopes” things would change. I also loved that the both of them had several things in common yet had their own things going on, able to support one another but be on their own.
Narrators - both continue to do a fabulous job with the characters. They each bring their own unique talents to the story enhancing the reader’s experiences.
Overall, a great continuation of the series and I cannot wait for the next book!
