ABOUT EASY MAGIC:
The Boudreaux Series. Sexy. Intriguing. Easy.
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?

“Being touched by Beau is like being touched for the first time in my life, and I never want him to stop.”
Easy Magic was a beautiful and unexpected read. This story not only weaves a tale of undeniable romance, but also has an unexpected magical touch. Mallory and Beau’s story brings together all of my favorite romantic elements with a magical twist for one unforgettable romance.
I’m pretty sure I fell in love with this story from the moment I picked it up. As soon as I read that prologue, I got a taste of just how truly unique and refreshing this story was going to be. Mallory is a truly special character. Her life has never been easy and the only thing she ever wanted to was to feel normal; even if that meant hiding her true self. When a pipe bursts in the apartment above her store, Mallory’s life will be turned upside down….Beau is always on the go. He only has two priories in life: work and family. He doesn’t have time for much else, but when it comes to Mallory, he is totally smitten. The chemistry between the two of them is intense and just begging to be explored. Beau just has to convince Mallory to take a leap. He knows she’s special and different and will stop at nothing to make her his….
Easy Magic was a quick and easy read for me. This story is told from dual points of view and while it is the fifth book in this series, it can be read as a stand-alone novel. I absolutely adored the setting of this story. I mean how can you not love New Orleans? It was the absolute perfect and inspiring setting for Mallory’s story.
I loved Mallory and Beau together. Mallory was such a lovely character. She had a huge heart, and was afraid to let people get close to her because of her differences. But, there was just something about Beau that called to her. He grounded her and made her feel normal. There was so much potential with him, that she would have been a fool to walk away from him. And Beau….such a patient and truly fascinating man. He felt the pull towards Mallory and pursued it with every fiber of his being. I loved how protective and caring he was and the calm that he provided Mallory. Together, these two were just amazing. Their chemistry and tension so palpable. I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next with them.
Overall, Easy Magic was a really fun and entertaining read. It had everything from unforgettable romance to magical aspects to drama, mystery and suspense. This story had it all and certainly kept me on my toes. And I just loved it! Easy Magic is a wonderful addition to The Boudreaux Series and I look forward to seeing what fun this author has in store for us next.
*I was provided an ARC copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review*
I pull my phone out of my pocket to call Beau Boudreaux, who also happens to be my landlord.
Of course, there is no answer.
The man lives upstairs, directly above this shop. Can’t he hear the water? Does he sleep like the dead?
Or maybe he’s not home.
I frown and open my mind, searching the building.
He’s home. I can feel his presence.
And he might be naked.
I immediately slam the psychic door shut and walk outside, up the wrought iron steps to his loft, and bang on the door.
“Wake up,” I mutter. “And put some pants on.”
I raise my hand to bang again, but the door is flung open and there’s Beau, rubbing sleep from his eyes, a frown on his handsome face.
He’s pulled some sweatpants on.
“What’s going on?” he demands.
“I have a leak,” I reply and swallow hard, willing myself to keep my eyes on his face, and not the sculpted muscles of his torso. I’ve met the man exactly twice, including right now, but what he does to my libido is ridiculous.
I’d forgotten that I have a libido.
Which is a sad statement all on its own.
“You had to wake me up at four-thirty for a leak?”
“I have three inches of water on my floor,” I reply and turn to stomp down the stairs. “Come look!”
I don’t look back as I wade back into my store. A few moments later, I hear Beau come clomping down the steps and look back as he fills the doorway with his wide shoulders. He’s tall, pushing six-and-a-half feet. His hair is dark, and his eyes are like old whiskey.
Those whiskey eyes survey the space, frowning when he sees the amount of water on the floor.
“Do you know where it’s coming from?”
“The bathroom,” I reply and lead him to it.
“The fucking ceiling fan?” He exclaims and shakes his head. “I was expecting the toilet to be overflowing. Old plumbing is unpredictable.”
“I was expecting the same, but here we are,” I say and cross my arms over my chest. He glances back at me, and his eyes drop to my cleavage for just an instant before he looks me in the eye.
I don’t uncross my arms.
“I’m going to shut off the water to the building.”
He rushes back outside and a few moments later, the water slows to a small trickle, and then fast drops.
He comes back inside and looks up. “Must be a broken pipe.”
“Are you a plumber as well as a billionaire mogul?” I ask, unable to resist.
His lips twitch. “I’m good at a lot of things.”
Oh, I just bet you are.
