Blog Tour for Nice and Easy by Erin Nicholas (REVIEW)


Readers will find themselves drawn to this tale of a protective firefighter and the younger woman who’s longing to be independent and who he’s come to count on as they both tackle single parenthood.  Keep reading to get a tempting taste of Nice and Easy by Erin Nicholas, along with my impressions of it, then add this third installment in the Boys of the Big Easy series to your bookshelf!

A hot firefighter who just wants to take care of her and her little boy? Sign her up.
Moving in with him and his little girl who already has a huge chunk of her heart? Very nice.
Roommates with benefits? Yes, please.
Convincing this take-charge alpha to let her take care of him too? That’s not going to be as easy.

EXCERPT:

Lexi could feel Caleb’s breath on her lips, and his bunched muscles under her palm were hot and hard. She stared at his mouth. He stared at hers. And she decided that if he wasn’t going to look at her breasts, looking at her mouth like he was starving and she was a grilled BLT—his favorite food in the world—was just fine with her.
Being compared, even in her own head, to a grilled BLT might not seem sexy, but in her mind, it so was. Caleb devoured those sandwiches. He’d do almost anything for one. He made sexy moaning sounds when he first tasted them. And he’d proclaimed that hers were the best he’d ever tasted. Yeah, put that way, along with the schnapps still coating her brain, it was strangely sexy.
“Caleb.”
She watched his pupils dilate and his jaw clench.
Her hand went to the front of his shirt and she bunched it in her fists, watching his eyes. He didn’t try to stop her. Then she tugged, urging him forward.
And he came, the hand next to her hip pressing into the mattress as she tipped her head to one side. Their lips touched. Softly. Briefly. But she felt it all the way to her bones. Heat, want, relief. She suddenly had to have more. She made a little almost-a-sob sound and licked her tongue along his lower lip.
“Lex.”
Her name was more of a groan than a word. It was the sexiest thing she’d ever heard.
“Caleb,”she breathed.
Then the next groan became the sexiest thing she’d ever heard. It was a combination of hunger and resignation, and she felt like he’d just set her nerve endings on fire.
Suddenly, Caleb’s hand came up to cup the back of her head, his fingers diving into her hair. And he took over.
His mouth opened over hers and his tongue stroked deep and hot. Every glide of his tongue felt as though he was running a finger over her clit. Some were firmer, some softer, some longer, some shorter, and her need ratcheted up with each one.
She ran her hands over his chest to his shoulders and up the sides of his neck, loving the hard muscles and the heat under her palms. Then she slid her hands down his sides to the bottom of his shirt. She slipped her hands underneath, moaning as she met hot, bare skin. He sucked in a quick breath and she smiled against his lips, loving having an effect on him.
And suddenly she was on her back and Caleb was moving over her. Her hands slid to his back, the muscles there bunching as he braced himself above her, still kissing her like it was his job. Instinctively, she slid her legs apart and he settled between them. The comforter was between them, but she felt him hard and hot and deliciously heavy against her. The feel of his cock pressed against her made her ache. She’d done that to him. She’d made him hard.
Hallelujah.

MY IMPRESSIONS OF THIS BOOK:

The immensely likable characters inhabiting Ms. Nicholas’s Boys of the Big Easy series are back in another charming and sensual read.  This time around friends become lovers in a romance that goes from easy and comfortable to become something more meaningful as their true feelings come out.  By the turn of the final page readers will be left charmed and greatly anticipating a return visit to this unforgettable group of people.

Caleb Moreau is the cool, calm, and collected Lieutenant Chief with the fire department.  He’s used to taking charge and giving orders, quick to protect those he sees as needing help.  Sexy and single he’s finally getting the hang of being a single parent after getting custody of his young niece with the death of her parents.  The changes to his life have gone much smoother thanks to a young woman he met in a single parent support group, a woman he’s growing closer to despite the fight he’s having with his heart and mind.  Lexi makes everything better, seamlessly in his life and making his house a home while he carries on as any other red-blooded man.  They’re a dynamic duo though, co-parenting to make a nice life for both their kids while balancing time for themselves.  It’s a relationship that’s easy...almost too easy as it becomes clear that Caleb’s been taking Lexi for granted.  She’s become so integral to his life that he can’t picture her not being there, which is why the attention she receives from other men awakens his jealous side and has him finally acting on his long-simmering feelings.  As they go from roommates to lovers the sensuality intensifies and readers discover another side to Lexi that leads to some blush-worthy interludes.  Through it all Caleb’s an immensely appealing hero, clearly an alpha but with a kind heart too.  He’s sexy, yet endearing as he starts to accept his feelings and his failings when it comes to how he’s treated Lexi all along.  His interactions with his niece and Lexi’s son were endearing too and made me like him even more in a romance that built slowly through heartfelt words and deeds.

Since the day Lexi Scott was born it was always just her and her mom, making ends meet all on their own.  When her son was born Lexi was still able to count on her mother to help her make a life for her son.  Meeting Caleb gave her someone else she could count on and her appreciation for all he does for her and her mom had them forming a well-balanced connection based on parenting. It’s a relationship that’s easy on many levels, but when her mother moves away Lexi finds herself becoming Caleb’s new roommate.  Suddenly things take on a more complex turn as hidden feelings come rushing to the forefront, desires that can no longer be kept hidden lead to scorching encounters that bind them together even tighter.  Moments of introspection and quiet talks help them learn more about each other which fuels their scorching encounters as they become a more real family.  Lexi’s a very likable heroine, a bit young-acting at times, but hard working and genuine.  She seamlessly fits in with Caleb and Shay, just as he’s easily found a place in her son Jack’s life, and it’s a charming family in the making.  Lexi’s a truly nice person who finds joy in making others happy.  When she looks at Caleb she knows he’s someone she can count on and she wants nothing more than to make life comfortable for him.  Her adoration and attraction, an attraction that she finally sets free as this story progresses, has her sometimes letting him take advantage of her niceness but it finally leads to empowerment.  A heroine seen as sweet and naive soon unleashes a naughty side that only Caleb could satisfy in scenes that were erotically-charged and showed that Lexi too could be commanding.  On a whole they’re a delightful couple with a heartwarming journey to HEA that I felt privileged to witness.

Ms. Nicholas has once again crafted a story that beautifully balances eroticism with sweetness and charm.  Caleb and Lexi are relatable and likable all on their own, but together they’re a formidable pairing with a crackling connection. Caleb’s strong-willed and protective and it’s clear how much he needs Lexi in his life which makes their relationship of friends to roommates to lovers so believable.  Lexi has a big heart and a sweet nature which made her emerging sex kitten side all the more entertaining in a journey to HEA that held me captive.  Surrounding this likable main couple were their children, mini adults that brought a smile to my face.  I normally don’t care for kids in my romances but Shay and Jack utterly charmed me with their words and deeds.  There’s plenty of other characters inhabiting this tale that made the story even richer. Friends and family, some we’ve seen previously and some just leaving their mark here, provided playful and heartwarming moments throughout the story to make me even more invested in this couple’s HEA.  Readers will find this an immensely satisfying story, full of likable characters, that’s a perfect balance of sweet and sexy which will leave you clamoring for more from this well-crafted series.

My rating for this is an A-

*I got this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.

After years of struggling with alcoholism and drug abuse, I got clean and put my best foot forward. I became the man worthy of Lacey Parrish’s love and made the girl with the sad brown eyes my wife. But I’m not the only one in our marriage with demons. Diagnosed a manic depressive, Lacey struggles daily with her mind, never willing to succumb to the stigma of mental illness.
The odds have always been stacked against us, but the stakes have never been this high.
Pregnant with our child, Lacey is forced to choose between her mind and the baby we wished for.
I can take pain, but I can’t take hers.
Helpless and at the mercy of her illness, I turn to my past.
It’s always our favorite sins that do us in.
Leather.
Lace.
Me.
Her.
Suffering through hell, hoping love is enough for us to survive one more blackout.

EXCERPT:

Panting, she falls on top of me. Her perky tits press against my chest as she buries her face in my neck and whispers my name once more. Enjoying the high, I breathe in her sweet scent and wrap my arms tightly around her small frame. It doesn’t matter that I just came or that my dick is still swollen, pulsing inside of her, I’m already looking for another fix. Overdosing on Lacey wouldn’t be the worst thing to ever happen to me. Hell, I can’t think of a better fucking way to go.
“Blackie,” she calls softly, running her fingers down my arm.
“Hmm,” I murmur, flattening my palm against the small of her back.
“We didn’t…” Her words trail as she lifts her head and turns her eyes to me. “You know,” she finishes, worrying her bottom lip between her teeth. Her gaze drifts to where our bodies are still joined, and the weight of her words penetrate through my haze filled head.
I wait for regret to replace my high. For panic to fill her eyes. I wait and wait and none of it happens. She doesn’t scramble off me and I don’t move to lift her either. There is no mad dash to the bathroom to wash my seed from her. There’s just us and the possible promise of something beautiful hanging heavy in the air.
“Blackie, say something,” she pleads.
Lifting my hands to my face, I comb my fingers through my long hair, pushing it away from my eyes. With nothing obstructing my view of her, I take her in. I’ll never understand what the fuck she sees in me. She could have had her pick of men and yet she still chose me. Demons and all, the girl married me and took my name. Took a beaten down drug addict and gave him a purpose. A will to live and a goddamn future.
Reaching out, I cup her chin. The pad of my thumb caresses her lower lip as my gaze trails down her body, settling on her flat stomach. For a second my imagination carries me away and I picture her pregnant. My throat clogs with a mixture of emotions as I let myself entertain the idea a little longer and it isn’t long before I’m envisioning her with a baby in her arms.
My baby.
I don’t deserve Lacey and I sure as fuck don’t deserve the honor of being anyone’s father. I’m a fucking criminal with a rap sheet that spans as many years as my wife has been on this earth. These hands of mine have been covered in blood and aren’t worthy of holding an innocent child.
I’m a fucking addict too.
So, I’m clean—big fucking deal.
All it takes is one time.
One fucking slip.
Being an addict isn’t a choice. Addiction doesn’t go away because you got a woman thirteen years younger than you loving on you, wanting to give you a child. You’re not miraculously healed because you’ve done a stint in rehab and have a sobriety coach on speed dial. It’s a beast that lives inside of me and every day I open my eyes, I struggle to starve that fucking animal. Some days are worse than others.
Like today.
Today, I wanted to tie a tourniquet around my arm and shoot my veins from here to kingdom come. Instead, I came home and abandoned the weight of my burdens by sinking between my wife’s legs. I got lost in her sweet body and ignored the fact that the day I’ve been dreading is fast approaching. That day being the one when Jack Parrish loses his mind altogether and I take his place as the president of the Satan’s Knights MC.
He’s been grooming me for years. Instilling all his wisdoms and beliefs, sharing his vision for the club and making me lead in situations when he’s more than capable of leading himself. If you ask Jack Parrish if I’m ready to take his place, they’ll be be no hesitation, only conviction as he says yes.
But no one ever asks me if I’m ready.
Just like no one ever asked if I wanted the role in the first place.
For as long as Jack has had the gavel, I’ve been his V.P., the man who sits at his right. The guy who stands between him and any loaded gun. I’ve sacrificed myself on the sword more times than I care to admit. I’ve thrown my sobriety down the toilet and have done more stints in jail than any other motherfucker with a reaper on his back. Loyalty, respect and honor—I’ve got it all in spades. I just don’t have a lick of it for myself.
Focusing my attention back to Lacey, I draw out a ragged breath and lift my eyes to hers. Hope radiates from her dark irises and I swallow the lump in my throat.
When Jack first took office, people called him a liability. They said a mentally ill man couldn’t possibly lead, that he’d act on impulse and recklessly get us all killed. Over the years, he proved himself. He took the hopeless pessimists and made them believers. If a deranged man can lead, then surely a recovering addict can follow in his footsteps.
Maybe I can lead my brothers.
Maybe I can be the man my wife needs me to be.
Maybe I can be someone’s father.
“You want a little Petra running around this house?” I ask hoarsely, tucking a strand of hair behind her ear.
God, if we have a baby, I hope she looks just like Lacey.
Cocking her head to the side, she splays her palm against my cheek and smiles at me.
“I want ten little Petra’s running around this house,” she replies softly.
A laugh escapes the back of my tight throat.
“How about we start with one?”
Her eyes light up at the suggestion and the smile that spreads across her face makes me fucking feel invincible. Then again, drugs will do that to you. They’ll erase your pain and make you think you can conquer the world.
“Yeah?” she questions, pushing her fingers through my hair. “You want to make a baby with me?”
I want so much more than that. I want to give her the whole world. Every dream, every desire. I want to tie a perfect bow around them and give them to her. I suppose a beautiful baby is good place to start.
“Yeah, girl,” I whisper hoarsely. “I want it more than you could ever know.”
More than drugs.
More than power.
More than anything.

“Chicks can’t be bodyguards. Especially hot chicks.”
MY NAME IS MITCH HOFER. I’m a world-famous swimmer from Australia, best known for three things: my gold medals, my looks, and filling out a swimsuit with my…eh-hem–bulky equipment. Let’s just say there’s a reason my nickname is “The Bulge.”
But beyond the fame, sponsors, and glory, there’s more to me than people know, including one hell of a mess I’ve gotten mixed up in. Life or death stuff, so bring in the professionals. Just don’t give me a chick bodyguard. Especially a young hot one who hates my guts.
MY NAME IS ABI CARTER, and I hate Mitch Hofer. Yeah, he might be the sexiest champion swimmer in the world, but I’d give this guy a gold medal for being a first-class jerk.
Unfortunately, my boss has given me a choice–guard Mitch or get another job. And I really need the money. I can be professional, but if Mitch says “chicks can’t be bodyguards” one more time, I just might strangle him myself.
Still, something about the way Mitch keeps looking at me makes me think there’s more to his story. It’s almost as if he’s trying to drive me away. But why?
