She’s been proposed to five times.
She even said yes to one of them.
And then broke his heart when she called it off. Not to mention her mother’s heart. And her grandmother’s. And his mother’s. And…you get the picture.
Paige Asher has now officially sworn off all dating. Diamonds give her hives.
All she wants is to be a yoga-doing, cat-collecting, vegetarian in peace. Away from her marriage-crazy family and all their expectations.
So when her weekend fling turns into a real friend and offers her a place to escape, she finds herself on his doorstep in Louisiana. And right in the middle of not just one family wedding, but three. Of course.
Charming, sexy bayou boy Mitch Landry gets stuff done. Whatever anyone needs. From alligator-sitting to getting a buddy drunk to showing a woman a good time to fixing a swamp boat, he’s the man. No problem. No drama.
But he wants a hell of a lot more from Paige than a temporary friends-with-benefits arrangement. He wants to take care of her. And her five cats. He also really wants other men to stop asking her to marry them.
But if a roommate and a few orgasms are all she wants, that’s what he’ll deliver.
He can just be her friend and not commit the greatest sin of all…asking her for forever.
Point of view:
3rd person. Alternating by Paige & Mitch’s perspectives.
This is the final book in the Boys of the Bayou series. There’s a LOT of references & appearances by folks from earlier books in the series – so this one doesn’t really stand on its own that well. I’d definitely recommend reading the other books first.
This serves not only as Mitch & Paige’s story, but also the wrap up of the series and an intro/launch to a spin-off series. I liked the way Nicholas combined all these without sacrificing Mitch & Paige’s romance.
Paige is only 22 and tired of everyone trying to marry her off. Mitch is the perfect compliment to her AND he’s respectful of her desire not to be tied down. His gentle and laid back approach allows her to feel safe. He’s just perfect.
The Landrys haven’t met a stranger and Paige is no exception. Lots of fun banter, sexy times, and planning 3 Landry weddings. She becomes a member of the family without being tied to Mitch… but realizes she wants exactly that. It’s a great conclusion to the series and for Mitch & Paige.
About the author:
Erin Nicholas: I’ve been reading romance since my mom first let me into her book cupboard when I was about fourteen. LaVyrle Spencer, Julie Garwood, Debbie Macomber… they took my ‘happily ever after’ ideas from animated princesses to real people in the real world.
I’ve been writing romance almost as long. Many a family car trip was spent with my head bent over a spiral notebook in the back seat. I’ll confess that my very first attempts at fiction were fantasy and paranormals, influenced by my father’s love of the Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, and the original Alice in Wonderland. If Harry Potter had been around, I’m sure he would have been on the bedtime story shelf as well.
But it wasn’t long until I started writing about true love and that’s where I’ve been ever since.
I’m so thrilled to be able to share these stories with you! I hope that they make you smile, sigh, maybe even choke up a little. Most of all, I hope that they help you believe in magical things like first kisses, the spark of passion, and the power of true love.
