What We're Reading Wednesday {May}

Hello, Fellow Book Worms!
 I know I sound like a broken record...but I really can't believe it is May and time for another
"What We're Reading" post! But hey I guess time really does fly when you're having fun! 

I read 3 books this month! To some your like "wow that's great" but considering I read 7 last month....I was a little disappointed in myself this time and I spent 5 days at the beach! Ha 

At least I read some great ones! 

First up, I read Easy Magic by Kristen Proby

I have said this over and over again, but I LOVE Kristen's books!! 
The Boudreaux Series is one of my favorite series by her along with With me in Seattle Series

Here is the description from Amazon

Family. Responsibility. Stability. 

As the co-CEO of Bayou Enterprises, and the eldest of the Boudreaux clan, Beau is the epitome of these. Now that his baby sister Gabby is happily settled down, Beau has moved into the company loft in the heart of the French Quarter to be closer to his office while his own home is built. He doesn’t have time for anything but the family he adores and the company that drives him.

If only the bewitching owner of the herb shop downstairs from Beau’s loft wasn’t so damn tempting.

Mallory Adams is living the life. The good life. The best life for her. After years of hiding who she is, and the gifts she’s been cursed with, Mallory opened her little shop in the French Quarter, offering herbs and lotions for anything from soothing a sunburn to chasing those pesky ghosts New Orleans is known for out of a client’s home. Some call her eccentric, and some say she’s simply odd, and that’s okay with her. She is a bit odd, but in her experience, all of the best people are. 

When an old pipe bursts in the loft above her store, flooding her storeroom, Mallory comes face to face with Beau Boudreaux, and she doesn’t need the clairvoyant abilities that have been passed down through generations to know that she’ll never be the same. Beau is her exact opposite; serious, straitlaced. He wears suits for Pete’s sake and probably wouldn’t know the difference between arnica and flaxseed if his life depended on it. But when he touches her, the electricity is through the roof and she’s smart enough to know that a chemistry like theirs doesn’t happen every day.

Can two people so very different possibly find their way to happily ever after?

My Thoughts: I read this book in one day. I COULD NOT put it down. I love The Boudreaux Family! This is a series that I will read again once all the books are released! I don't like to share a lot of details because I do not want to give away any spoilers! But you will not be disappointed with this series! 

Here is the description from Amazon.

Finn Ward has two passions: being a firefighter and being single. Although his parents are constantly nagging him to settle down, Finn just wants to enjoy himself while he’s young. Then, at a union meeting, he meets a gorgeous lawyer with a dazzling smile—and suddenly, settling down doesn’t sound so bad.

Rory Adams is fresh out of law school and looking to make a name for herself at her mother’s firm. She doesn’t have time for silly games anymore. But when she catches the eye of a dashing fireman who makes her body tingle from across the room, something instantly ignites between them. The only problem? Her father is Finn’s boss.

Their relationship turns both of their lives upside-down. Rory tames Finn’s wild ways, while he shows her that life can’t be all work and no play. But it’ll take some serious determination to keep their love secret—and real courage to admit the truth.

My Thoughts: I LOVED this fun, flirty, heart-wrenching book! At times, I wanted to scream at the characters to just admit they liked each other and other times I wanted to tell her father myself!! HA 
It was a great book! I love Kelly's books, as well! 

This series starts with Searching for Harmony and Oh My Glitter that one is a tear jerker!! 

Last but not least, I traveled back to my beloved Gansett Island to read Gansett Island Series: Episode 1 (Victoria and Shannon) by Marie Force

Here is the description from Amazon.

Gansett Island midwife Victoria Stevens loves taking care of people, in her job and in her personal life, especially when it comes to her boyfriend of one year, sexy Irishman Shannon O’Grady. Fueled by combustible chemistry, her relationship with Shannon has been H-O-T from the start. But she’s begun to wonder whether theirs is destined to be a short-term fling or possibly the love of a lifetime. When she goes looking for answers about his past, she learns something she was better off not knowing and isn’t sure what to do with her newfound information. What will happen when Shannon finds out she’s been asking questions about him, and will they be able to overcome the obstacles standing between them and happily ever after? Find out in this first Gansett Island Episode, which also includes the arrival of some long-awaited island babies!

My Thoughts: I am so thankful that Marie started a series for some of the other characters that we have met in the Gansett Island Series!! Victoria and Shannon are the main characters in Episode 1. We met Victoria earlier on in the series and I am so glad that I got to know more about her and her relationship with Shannon! Can't wait to read more!!
