Synopsis: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.

An Excerpt from Easy Melody
Here goes nothing.
It’s still early in the evening, but it’s not a typical busy night, and I’m hoping I’ll be able to get Callie alone, even if it’s just for a few moments so I can talk to her. I don’t want to wait until later tonight to walk her to her car.
I walk in and sigh in relief. It’s slow in The Odyssey, with just a few tables occupied, and a couple of guys at the bar. The roof is closed, which tells me it’s been mellow all day.
As I walk toward the bar, I see Callie at the far end talking to a tall suit-type who’s handing her flowers.
“Oh, Pete, you didn’t have to do that.” She’s smiling as she buries her nose in the blooms.
“Well, dinner out just hasn’t worked out, so I decided to come to you.”
Who the fuck is this?
“We’ve both been busy,” Callie says as she shifts her gaze and finds me standing not far behind Flower Boy. Her eyes widen and her cheeks pinken. I stand firm, cross my arms over my chest, and watch unapologetically.
“I know things ended between us a long time ago,” the dude continues, “but I’ve never forgotten you, Cal. Let me take you out, like old times.”
“Callie,” I say, my voice calm but firm. “Can I talk to you for a minute?”
“Adam can get you a drink. We’re having a conversation,” Pete says, obviously pissed at being interrupted.
I bet he’s been practicing his speech for a week.
“Now,” I say simply.
“I’ll be back,” she says to Pete, then walks around the bar and motions for me to follow her. As soon as we’re in her office, I close the door and move her against it, caging her in.
“Is he who you want, Callie?” I’m panting, adrenaline taking over. Callie’s blue eyes are wide and pinned to mine. She’s gripped on to my shirt over my ribs, holding on tightly. “Say he is, and I’ll leave right now.”
She blinks once, then again.
“That’s what I thought,” I plunge one hand into her soft hair, fist my hand in it and tilt her head back, and kiss her. Hard. She moans, long and deep, pulling me to her with those hands, and I’m lost in her. Our tongues explore each other, and then I nibble the corner of her mouth and kiss her softly. “I’m tired of trying to keep my hands off of you,” I murmur, my lips still against hers.
Ok so the last book in the series left me truly wanting more… I couldn’t wait for Declan and Callie’s story and Kristen did not disappoint! I feel like this third book in the series is absolutely the best so far. I loved the dynamic between Callie and all the girls in the family. I also absolutely LOVE DECLAN!!!! These two are both severely stubborn to a fault, they mix like oil and water at times, and other like fire to gasoline, especially in the bedroom!
Callie was forced to move back to the Big Easy upon the death of her father, their estranged relationship over the years haunting her, as she unfolded all the hardships she didn’t even know existed. Her inheritance, a bar. All be it a failing bar, but a bar none the less. Callie worked hard to transform it into something that people would want to visit and that she could be proud of! She has a passion and that’s decorating and flipping houses or bars in this case. She’s always been missing that one thing, someone in her life to love her the way she loves others, with passion and vigor. She falls hard for the floundering Declan Boudreaux, and how could she not, he’s talented, passionate and he’s been after her for a long time. So when she gives in, she falls quickly for this man and his family. Just one small problem… He’s not the commitment type!
Delcan is a ladies man, his looks and his musician status get him more ladies than he could ask for… But through all of that he lacks the real love that comes with a relationship. He’s had it a bit rough and doesn’t really want to go down that route again. Relationships complicate things and he just wants easy… But Callie is nothing but easy, she’s difficult in every way and gets under his skin like no other. Delcan is determined to make Callie believe that they can maintain a relationship, yet his lack of knowledge in the subject, shows otherwise. Jumping to conclusions, leads them both down the wrong paths, and they both just need to talk it out and find their way back.
The conclusion to this book was simply perfection. Another one of Kristen’s heartfelt, happy endings with just the right touch of sassy and sweet! I couldn’t have asked for a better read out of Easy Melody. I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next in this series… I’m really hoping for a specific couple to finally get their acts together and stop fighting the inevitable. But alas I will wait till they are ready cause I have a feeling their book will be explosive! Kristen’s writing is like a fine wine, it keeps getting better with age and time, and I will personally read anything she ever writes!
And don’t forget to grab the first book in the Boudreaux Series!
