Audiobook Review: Easy Nights by Kristen Proby



Easy Nights 
(Boudreaux Series, Bk #6)
by Kristen Proby 
Narrated by Rachel Fulginiti and Zachary Webber

Blurb: 

No one said change was easy…

Savannah Boudreaux knows what it is to hurt. To bleed. To be afraid that the man she’s promised to be true to until “death do us part” might in fact separate them far sooner than anyone had ever anticipated. But Van also knows what it is to survive. To move on. To live life to the fullest. With five brothers and sisters and a loving mother as her constant source of strength during the pain and the healing, Van realizes there is little else she needs.

But some things never change…

Benjamin Preston sat on the sidelines of the Boudreaux family for years, in love with a woman he couldn’t have. As the best friend of the Boudreaux brothers since childhood, Ben has seen both tragedies and joys in the family. And as a former MMA fighter and Krav Maga expert, Ben’s used to fighting for what he wants—and winning. His hands were tied when Savannah married her high school sweetheart not long after graduation, but now two years have passed since Ben found Savannah broken in her own home.

Sometimes what you need most has been right in front of you the whole time…

Van’s convinced that happiness isn’t in the cards for her, no matter how right it feels to be in Ben’s strong arms—and his bed. Ben is determined to win her heart and fight for her trust. He’s promised to protect her, to be her friend. But more than anything, he wants to finally make her his, and this is one fight he’s not willing to lose.

Viviana's Review: 
Readers of this series have been eagerly awaiting for Ben's and Val's HEA. We knew it would happen, we wanted to know how it would all play out. Ben has always been awesome! We loved his friendship to the Boudreaux brothers and his loyalty to the whole family. We also loved his tenderness and protective nature towards Van. He loved her from afar. I knew he would be patient with her once they got together and thought her trust issues (due to her past history) would be the conflict in the story. Nope. They fell step in step with each other once they finally got together. Which, honestly, I had a bit of an issue with. Based on her history and everything she went through, regardless of the fact that she KNEW Ben is totally different and would never hurt her, she should have had some issues... but nope.

The conflict came from a twist we weren't expecting or saw coming. Kristen seemed to try to add some suspense to the story and there were moments where it seemed to far fetch and others where it was just off. Fore example, the reason why she stayed in the abusive relationship for as long as she did. Considering who her family is and how they are with each other, it wasn't believable. This really knocked my love for the story. 


Narrator Review: 
I love Zachary Webber. He is a great narrator and has the ability to bring a vulnerability to the male characters, yet still be totally sexy and alpha. Which totally works for this book! Rachel has narrated the entire series and continues with her excellent performance.


Overall, it was a good read/listen. I wish there would have been more... what exactly, I can't seem to pin point it. Perhaps it was all the anticipation for the story and it not living up to it that is more disappointing. I still really liked it but not as much as I had hoped.




Rating: 3.5 Stars - I REALLY LIKED IT!
