    Going Down Easy is book one in the brand new series, Boys of the Big Easy, by Erin Nicholas. Prepare to fall in love with Gabe, one of two brothers that own their own bar in New Orleans. Gabe Trahan was smitten with Addison Sloan the first time she walked into his and his brother, Logan’s bar. She went home with him that night and spent the rest of the weekend with him. Then she went home to New York where she was a restoration architect. She had been in New Orleans that weekend consulting with a Going Down Easy is book one in the brand new series, Boys of the Big Easy, by Erin Nicholas. Prepare to fall in love with Gabe, one of two brothers that own their own bar in New Orleans. Gabe Trahan was smitten with Addison Sloan the first time she walked into his and his brother, Logan’s bar. She went home with him that night and spent the rest of the weekend with him. Then she went home to New York where she was a restoration architect. She had been in New Orleans that weekend consulting with a local firm. Then, one month later, she walked in again. For six months, one weekend a month Addison would walk in to Gabe’s bar. They would spend the weekend having mind blowing sex, and touring the city of New Orleans. Addison loved everything to do with his city. Addison was finding it harder and harder to say good-bye to Gabe at the end of their weekends. Which was a huge red flag to her. She didn’t want a relationship. She had a busy career and a five year old daughter to raise. So when the firm that she had been consulting with in New Orleans offered her a full time job, she jumped at it to move to the city she had fallen in love with. But she knew that she would have to end things with Gabe. “Gabe Trahan was the kind of guy that hearts just went a little nuts over. He was funny and sexy and sweet and dirty and confident and charming and gorgeous.” Gabe was finding himself thinking of Addison constantly between her visits. When he found out she had moved to New Orleans, he was all in. He wanted more from her. She thought he would run for the hills when she told him she had a daughter. But his reaction was just the opposite. He was thrilled, because he also had a child, a five year old son named Cooper. He always wanted to have more children. These two couldn’t have been more different in so many ways. Addison let her adventurous daughter experience life independently, always knowing her Mom was nearby if she needed her help. She wasn’t a very demonstrative woman and was determined to raise her daughter on her own, by her own rules, not allowing anyone else to have any input in her decisions. Gabe’s son Cooper was very cautious and Gabe tended to be a bit protective of him as a result. Gabe was always touching people, hugging them, showing affection. His easy way was so evident in the way he was with little Cooper. Gabe’s mother and brother helped him to raise his son and Gabe also attended a weekly single parents meeting which gave him a huge support system. When Addison tries to end things with Gabe, he’s not taking no for an answer. But he will be patient. He finds ways to let her see on her own that allowing he and his son into their lives could work. I want to stop here and tell you that first, you are going to fall in love with Gabe. He was so sexy and when he was together with Addison, they burned up the pages. They were hot! He had the dirtiest mouth! You are also going to love these two kids. Little Cooper was so precious and Stella was the most adorable little girl. It took me a little longer to warm up to Addison. At first, I didn’t like the way she tried to be so independent. Even though I understood the reasons why. What I really loved, though, was the influence they had on each other. Gabe showed Addison that it was okay to give up a little bit of the responsibility, of the control. To let others in. Little Cooper was so cautious and Stella helped him to be brave. This was such a feel good, sexy, sweet story and I really enjoyed it. I absolutely loved the ending. I don’t know who the next book will be about but I’m definitely hoping it will be about Gabe’s brother, Logan.

It will bring you to the same place you had been having that bubble perfect existence...so you make the hard choice. You will stay away from what gave you so much pleasure. This is what Addison Sloan had to deal with. She had business in New Orleans and found herself in Gabe Trahan's bar. These two hit it off and bam...the chemistry was right, the connection worked and both were not looking for any relationships. What was at first just a hook up with no guilt , soon became a monthly visit where, yes, sex was happening and oh, so good.... but there was visiting restaurants, hot spots and just casual good times. The good times were so good.... Gabe wanted more and when he finds out Addison is living in town, he decides to figure out a way to make Addison see how right they both are. I cannot believe this is my first Erin Nicholas read! She has a full library of work and this is a series all about brothers and New Orleans. I look forward to the next entry.

This contemporary romance is super sexy and hot, but it also has so much heartfelt emotion. If you are or have been a single parent, there will definitely to be situations you will relate to. Gabe Trahan is a sexy, single dad who looks forward to his once a month fling with the visiting Addison, a restoration architect from New York City. Addison loves everything about New Orleans including her no-strings-attached once a month weekend fling with Gabe. Besides the best sex ever, Gabe sees his beloved city through new eyes and Addison gets a native son who knows all the best spots for beignets, pralines and jazz. Suddenly though, Gabe decides he wants more. But what can happen with Addison in NY. He does not even know about her personal life except for her name and job. What Addison has not told Gabe is that she has accepted a job in New Orleans. As much as she is addicted to their weekends, she is not interested in a relationship and even if she was, the minute men find out she is a single mom they all take-off. Gabe is not taking-off. He will do anything to convince Addison that he is not like her ex and could not be happier about Addison being a single parent like himself. Gabe wants to join their family lives and he is willing to do anything to make Addison believe that she can trust him with herself and her daughter’s futures. Addison does not give up control easily, but this sexy single dad is showing her another way of parenting and love. I loved everything about this romance! Gabe and Addison are extremely hot as a couple and so caring as parents. Ms. Nicholas does a great job of writing about differing styles of parenting without one type being better than the other. The single parents group adds other interesting adults to the story and I hope to see them in more stories in this series. Gabe’s son and Addison’s daughter are not just added placeholder characters, but integral characters to the story’s plot. Ms. Nicholas writes very hot and explicit sex scenes. The fun sex scenes were the ones that started, but never finished until the end of the story in the laundry room. I believe all parents will be able to relate to those. I am so glad this is the start of a series and I will be able to read even more about the boys of the Big Easy in the future. I cannot recommend this book enough! Thanks very much to Montlake Romance and Net Galley for allowing me to read this eARC.

This couple have a once a month weekend affair and then she returns to New York and he goes on with his life in New Orleans until one day he decides to send her flowers at the local office where she is consulting and follows it up with an in person meeting and finds out some truly interesting information that leads to a crazy, emotional journey between the two of them AND their two five year old children. I am so enamored with this couple and their story, not to mention their precious children. Smart, funny, sexy, sweet, and filled with so many wonderful moments, I loved Going Down Easy. Gabe and Addison seem like complete opposites; he lives life fully and by the seat of his pants and she likes order and rules, but in bed they are perfectly matched and out of bed they complement one another. I did get a bit frustrated with Addison trying to use her daughter as a reason to not pursue a relationship with Gabe, but I also understood where she was coming from. Gabe was patient and kind and kept showing Addison what she was missing and when he added in his son Cooper she was sunk, but the feeling was mutual because Stella captured his heart from the start. I loved the way Cooper and Stella interacted and how quick they formed a friendship. The single parents group offered up insight and advice for these two and became a sounding board for both of them. Gabe’s family welcomed Addison and Stella with open arms making their move to New Orleans easier. While it wasn’t always easy and both the adults made some mistakes along the way, the feelings and love were easy to see and the relationship between the adults and their children was magical. I read Going Down Easy during a bit of a difficult time in my life and Erin Nicholas managed to transport me out of my life and into the lives of this couple and the city of New Orleans and I can’t thank her enough for this bit of respite from the real world when I needed it the most.

    Tracy is a Bookcraver

    I went from ragey to smiling while reading this. I almost put it down because my animosity for Addison was unprecedented for a heroine and not a side character. She seemed cold, unyielding and self-centered. What she was planning on doing to Gabe was so crappy. To just disappear and leave him hanging, knowing that they both had feeling for each other?? It was irrelevant if they WANTED to have feelings for each other because they did. Her internal dialogue and rationalization around kids and marr I went from ragey to smiling while reading this.

It was irrelevant if they WANTED to have feelings for each other because they did. Her internal dialogue and rationalization around kids and marriage was so awful. She seemed resentful of her kid and her perceived "obstacles" were ridiculous. I decided to hang in there and skip some of her pages so I didn't throw my kindle across the room and low and behold, Addison had a complete 180 attitude change. She saw the error of her ways and gave Gabe and Cooper a chance. This series is actually about the trials of single parenthood and "it takes a village" vs doing it all on your own. If you can get past Addison's bad attitude in the beginning, it ends up being a lovely story! Follow my new blog!

And, as this also allows both of them to avoid those real life complications, it works for both of them...or so they tell themselves. Until Addison moves to New Orleans, and doesn't plan to tell Gabe, because her life is complicated and there's a deal breaker, or so she thinks, and she is afraid to face the idea that what works so well for them on the one weekend per month they see each other may not work on a permanent basis...and she is afraid of getting her heart broken. We've all been where she is, hiding from something that could be real, and probably already is, because we are afraid of taking the risk and getting our hearts broken in the process. Addison is ready to walk away. The problem, is that Gabe is tenacious and he is going to follow her. He is going to be where she is, and he is going to show her that he fits into her life in NOLA and that instead of complicating it, he makes it whole. It takes her a bit to get there, and the break up part of the book is in the middle, which I enjoyed. The reader isn't really a part of their weekends in New Orleans, so in order for the emotional investment of the story to work, this is treated almost like a second chance, with a couple of characters with a scorching chemistry and a history...but one that they are having to build from the beginning with a new set of circumstances. It was a fun read, I enjoyed this title, and I am looking forward to the others in the series!

    This book was fantastic!! It felt different from anything I’ve read from Erin Nicholas before but still felt true to her storytelling. The pacing was great and don’t even get me started on the character development!! Gabe was SO alpha but in a unique and refreshing way. I wish that more authors would write heroes like Gabe. He was so damn sure of wanting more with Addison and he was even more confident that it was going to happen and he didn’t hide it from anyone.

He was so damn sure of wanting more with Addison and he was even more confident that it was going to happen and he didn’t hide it from anyone. At the same time he never tried to forced Addison into feeling or moving forward with anything until he knew that it was her decision. Addison was the perfect yin to his yang. I loved how big of a role their kids played in this story too. Too often kids are written in as a sort of afterthought to the romance or just as an obstacle to the couples HEA. This was NOT the case here. Both kids were a very integral part to the growth of Addison and Gabe as individuals and as a couple. Their opposing parenting styles offered an even greater insight to who they were and the ways they still struggled with life, live and growth. There was some aspects of this book that really hit me in a way I wasn’t expecting and made me examine my own parenting style and forced me to feel ways I never expected to when I started this book. This was a spectacular introduction to this series and certainly did a great job piquing my interest in the other characters. I can’t wait for more!! *I received an ARC from NetGalley for voluntary review

    Going Down Easy captivated me from the first page! I ADORED Gabe Trahan the romantic, smooth talking, charming hero. Addison Sloan and Gabe spend one weekend a month together in Gabe’s home town of New Orleans. Their chemistry sizzles from day one. They have sex, eat beignets and listen to jazz and have more sex.

I ADORED Gabe Trahan the romantic, smooth talking, charming hero. Addison Sloan and Gabe spend one weekend a month together in Gabe’s home town of New Orleans. Their chemistry sizzles from day one. They have sex, eat beignets and listen to jazz and have more sex. They don’t talk to each other between visits and really don’t know that much about each other. Gabe realizes that saying goodbye to Addison is getting harder – and that maybe, just maybe, he is falling for her. Gabe and his brother Logan have hired Monroe & LeBlanc, an architectural firm to restore Trahan’s, their family tavern. They arrive at the firm for a meeting and Gabe sees Addison in the hallway. Gabe is surprised to learn that Addison has been hired by the firm. And even more surprised to learn that she wants to end their relationship. Addison believes she has the perfect way to send Gabe running—she has a 5 year old daughter. Gabe is thrilled because he has a 5 year old son! I laughed so hard because I could hear the happiness in Gabe’s voice and see the frightened, stunned look on Addison’s face! I loved Gabe’s determination to win Addison. He wants a happily ever after with Addison. He sends her a basket of pralines and includes an invitation to a single parent support group meeting. Addison is surprised when Gabe enters the room. I loved Gabe’s heartfelt confession to the group and how Addison took it in. Everyone in the room knew Gabe was seeing someone and offered him advice on how to get her back. This scene was well written and I knew, despite what she verbalized, Addison had strong feelings for Gabe. Erin Nicholas balances Addison and Gabe’s sexy times with the demands and pressures of being a single parent. Addison is raising Stella on her own. She has more of a hands off approach and encourages Stella to try new things. Gabe has entire support system help him raise his son Cooper. He lives with his mom and brother and everyone pitches in for Cooper. Through the parent support group the theme of what makes a good parent is explored. I loved the scene when Cooper snuggled up to Addison at the support group family night and when Stella explained to Addison why she wants to buy Cooper a flashlight. Both scenes were perfectly written and important to the storyline on multiple levels. In my opinion, this storyline choice moves the novel from a good to an excellent read. Going Down Easy is a sensuous, emotional story infused with love and family. Erin Nicholas successfully blends challenging social concerns with a romantic love story. The fun, fresh honest dialogue and the supporting characters are relatable and add depth to this opposites attract romance. I liked that there were several unexpected plot twists that challenged Gabe and Addison. The conclusion was perfect full of love and surprises! If you enjoy authors Laura Trentham Debbie Mason and Samantha Chase—you will adore this book! Gabe is my kind of hero—a bigger than life, charming man with blue eyes who does the laundry!

    What a great start to Erin Nicholas' newest series. I love dirty talking, hot, alpha male Gabe. I adore strong, independent Addison. Then you add in their two wonderful kids, Cooper and Stella and you have a really fantastic page turner about two single parents. I'm looking forward to hearing more from New Orleans.

    Gabe and Addison were HOT! Their story flew off the pages and I couldn't put it down. After a chance meeting via text, when Gabe gets to meet Addison in person he just knows...he knows that this is going to be something special. And he's not wrong. And Addison thinks she can keep Gabe as a "friend" but she's can't resist his 'Nawlins charm! Sexy, hot book. Erin Nicholas is off to a great start with her new Boys of the Big Easy series!

When Gabe and Addison first got together, it was just supposed to be for one night. However, one night quickly turned into a fun, flirty, no strings-attached fling. No promises of tomorrow, just mind blowing sex. Gabe and Addison have had the best time together, and lately Gabe has been feeling like he needs more. He wants a real relationship with Addison, not just a romp in the bed…Addison won’t admit this, but she’s pretty hung up on Gabe. I mean, he is completely irresistible. However, Gabe wants things that Addison is quite ready for. She’s had a lot of major changes in her life lately and isn’t ready to take on a relationship of any kind. You see, Addison has a secret she’s been keeping from Gabe and she knows once she tells him, he’ll run for the hills…Or will he? Will Addison take a chance on a once in a lifetime romance with Gabe or will her fears ruin everything?? There’s only one way to find out… Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I was hooked on Gabe and Addison from the very beginning. I thought the chemistry between the two of them was explosive and I was really excited to see where their story would go. Now, I’m not gonna lie to you, Addison did make me a little batty in the beginning. I hated the way she tried to push Gabe away when he wanted more. But, I did understand where she was coming from. She never planned on being on a mom and had a hard time accepting when it happened to her. She quickly found herself raising a child all on her own with no outside help at all. So, when Gabe came around and turned out to be a single parent as well, I think that really threw her for a loop. As much as she loves her daughter, she wasn’t looking to add anymore children into the mix. So, being with Gabe went against her plan. However, Gabe wasn’t so easily deterred. This man knew what he wanted and wasn’t afraid to go after it. He had insecurities when it came to love and parenting just like everyone else. But, he knew that what he had with Addison doesn’t come around that often, so he was willing to fight and prove to Addison that he was worth the risk. Going Down Easy is a fun and flirty romance. I loved the characters and found them very easy to relate to. I loved watching Gabe and Addison figure things out and overcome their fears. Addison learned that it was ok to depend on someone else, while Gabe learned that it’s awesome to have support, but he’s fully capable of doing it all on his own. These two characters grew a lot throughout their story and it was joy to watch their romance come full circle. I really enjoyed reading this book and getting lost in the story this author has written. *I was provided an ARC copy of this book via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review*

While there were moments that I wanted to throttle you, in those same moments I wanted to go hang with her, because I’ve been where she’s been and know how she’s feeling. I enjoyed watching her grow in that aspect, and seeing her realize how much is really out there and to enjoy it. This is a fantastic start to this new series by Erin Nicholas that I would definitely recommend!!!

Once a month she flies down to New Orleans from New York. She spends all of her free time with Gabe. Things are very simple with them as they are both single parents (not revealed up front) and live in different states. Everything changes when Addison takes a career opportunity restore old homes with the New Orleans branch of her firm. Now they must find a way to navigate a relationship when they are in the same city. The beginning of the book stalled for me for several reasons. First, we (the readers) are thrown right into their relationship. Of course, the blurb indicates that the hero and heroine are in some sort of relationship. I just expected to be able to warm up to them. The heroine is immediately trying to break things off with the hero. He is way more invested in the relationship with her but outside of the physical I didn’t understand how he became so emotionally involved. Addison is very cold and it takes more than half of the book for me to warm up to her. She is very organized and straightforward to the point that I had wondered how could she attract a man like Gabe. She does everything in her power to avoid Gabe now that she is living in New Orleans. She doesn’t want their children to meet. She refuses to meet his son. She is slightly resentful of being a mom which causes conflict with Gabe initially. However, he is so smitten with her that he is determined to win her over. He invites Addison to his single parents club. He hopes by showing her how other single parents get along, she will be willing to give them a chance. Eventually, the members of the group start to chisel away at her and she is excited to be a part of something. She decides to give her relationship with Gabe a chance. The development of their relationship alongside the story of their kids added a different dynamic to this story. I’m not the biggest fan of children in my romances when they take up so much space. Honestly, there is no real conflict except at the end and that felt forced at best. It might be due to the fact the author uses the children as a part of it. There are a great set of secondary characters. I’m curious to read more about them. ARC provided to me in exchange for review.

Going Down Easy is the first book of a new series set in New Orleans and is hot, hot, hot. Gabe and Addison hit if off as one night stands for a weekend once a month for six months. They don’t ask personal things, they don’t look for any information about the other’s life, they just are. She lives in New York City and comes to New Orleans once a month for a week for a consulting job. Things get hot and dirty and then it is no more or is it? When Addison transfers to New Orleans she not only doesn’t want Gabe to know, she tries to break things off. How does that turn out? When we learn more about each of their lives things get interesting fast. He’s a single dad, she’s a single mom. Neither of the other parent is involved in their lives. When Gabe doesn’t take no for an answer things do pick up. I loved how the two kids were woven into the story along with Gabe’s mom and brother. The support group Gabe and Addison attend helps fill a void for each of the members and the characters have a depth to them. Each of their stories is unique but each of them face difficult parenting issues given their circumstances. Parenting issues definitely abound! Gabe’s lucky he has a support system but he starts to not see it that way. The one step forward and two back for Gabe and Addison was heartbreaking but the way their kids are there for each other and take everything in stride was heartwarming. I loved how there were so many southern things especially those unique to New Orleans were brought into the story. There are twists and turns but will love ultimately win? There is some closure and a happily ever after with more story to tell. I’m looking forward to reading more of her books not only in this series.

There are no Big Easy answers in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Erin Nicholas’s sultry series. As far as flings go, single dad Gabe Trahan is pretty sure that Addison Sloan is his best bet. Once a month, Addison comes to New Orleans and then…It. Is. On. Until Addison returns to New York, it’s just hot, happily-no-strings-attached sex. And beignets. And jazz. But lately for Gabe, it isn’t nearly enough. Sure, maybe Addison’s gotten a bit hooked on Gabe. After all, who can resist a guy who’s so sexy, so charming, and so…available? But maybe he’s too available for her right now. Addison’s just moved to New Orleans, and relationships are definitely off the table. Besides, guys always bail when they learn her secret: she’s a single mom. Only Gabe’s not running. Worse, he’s thrilled. But Addison never signed up for ever-after romance, and Gabe won’t settle for anything less. Now it’s a battle of wills—and when it comes to the woman he’s falling for, Gabe isn’t above playing a little dirty. Thoughts: If you happen to be in the mood for a sweet, emotion-grabbing, romance that ties around two single parents trying to find love, this is an amazing book to pick up to get your fix. And not with two barely there children, but kids that feature heavily in the book – and in the romance. This book had the perfect mixture of heat, blended with romance, and topped with reality. Things weren’t always easy, and relationships are about making it work….and wanting to make it work. The characters were great, the kids were endearing, and Erin Nicolas’ writing sends it into ‘amazing’. This is definitely one to grab! Rating: A

Hoooooboy. This was definitely a five star read. Going Down Easy is the first book in Erin Nicholas's Boys of the Big Easy series, set in New Orleans. It's about two single parents who don't actually start their relationship knowing that the other person has a child. Gabe and Addison meet by chance when a mutual friend brings Addison to Gabe's bar when she's in town for the weekend. They immediately discover a delicious, irresistible chemistry which sets the tone for their repeated whirlwind weekends when Addison's in town for work. In the same way, Erin Nicholas draws us in with Gabe and Addison's fun, flirty banter. But then she brings ALL the feels. While the incredible weekends they've spent in bed are certainly one aspect of their characters they've shared with each other, the beauty is that this is merely the surface. Ms Nicholas leads us into their inner worlds, with their parenting challenges and fears, their tender hearts, their hearts' desires. The situations ring true. Their dialogue shines. Other pluses include a stellar cast of supporting characters, from friends to family; characters who do their best to adult but who can forgive and be forgiven when they inevitably stumble; and beignets. Mmm... I read Ms Nicholas's stories both eagerly and reluctantly, dreading the moment I reach the end. Fortunately Going Down Easy is the first book in the series. I absolutely can't wait for the next. *No children were actually harmed (or allowed to drive) in the preparation of this review. Really. ;)

Erin Nicholas is a new author to me and I am not sure why. Gabe Trahan is a New Orleans single dad who has been having a monthly fling with New Yorker Addison Sloan. Gabe runs a bar with his brother and Addison consults at an architectural firm. They have been having fun and the chemistry between them is off the charts. What happens when Gabe begins to feel that there could be more between them than just a fling even though live so far apart? Or do they? Unbeknownst to Gabe, Addison has accepted a position in New Orleans which will put her right on his doorstep. Gabe is thrilled when he finds out but Addison realises he could be a danger to her heart and decides to break things off. What transpires is a story of push and pull, give and take and find the courage from within to move out of one’s comfort zone and take a chance on life. I really fell hard and fast for Gabe but Addison, not so much. In fact it wasn’t until towards the end of the book that I truly warmed up to her. They say opposites attract and Gabe and Addison are certainly opposites in many ways. The banter and camaraderie between the single parent group attendees as well as the children made for some humorous and at times sad moments. This is the first book in a her new series and I will be checking out the rest as they become available. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher through Netgalley

Gabe's not sure, but he's certainly going to figure it out. Gabe understands how hard single parent-hood can be. He's been doing it for years with the help of his mother and brother. He's found a great support group that he can bounce ideas off of and take comfort in the fact that he doesn't have to have all the answers. Addison is used to having to be both parents to her daughter. She's never had parents to rely on and Stella's father has never been in the picture. She's taught her daughter independence and the importance of be able to take care of herself. Addison can't help but wonder though what it would be like to have someone to lean on or ask for advice. I really enjoyed this book. The characters are flawed but trying to make the lives of their children better. Addison's realization that she doesn't have to parent Stella by herself is almost as enlightening as Gabe's. Gabe's ability to look at himself the way Addison does causes him to realize that he's relied on his family to shoulder the burden of helping to raise Cooper. I can't wait to read the next book in this series. ~~Wicked Reads Review Team~~

The author just perfectly wove the story so that it was engaging and intriguing and I didn't want to stop reading. I loved this slowly developing relationship between Gabe and Addison (although the sex was there and HAWT from page one) and their two five year olds. This book was everything that made me happy. For six months, Addison and Gabe have been engaging in a hot fling once a month when she's in NOLA on business from NYC. It's hot and sexy and Gabe is starting to realize that he'd really like more, but he owns a bar in NOLA and Addison lives in NYC. That would never work. Oh, and she also has no idea that he has a five year old son. But surprise...Addison is relocating and also has a kid that Gabe had no clue about. In his view, this is perfect. He just wasn't counting on Addison's aversion to commitment. She already has a kid, doesn't want another. She also doesn't want anything more than a fling. She got pregnant by accident and was really burned by her ex. She's now a serious commitment-phobe. But Gabe doesn't give up that quickly. I love how he drew her into his world and eventually the kids became part of it all and this whole little dynamic works so well. I don't think I've ever read a book where the kids in the story worked so well in it to not only enhance the story, but to make that much better and heartwarming. I think I fell just as hard for Cooper and Stella...gah, these kids and how they bonded together...I LOVED THEM!! Everything about this book worked for me. At first, I couldn't see Addison's view, but then it became clearer and my heart hurt for both her and Gabe. I loved the way that the story played out and didn't want to put my kindle down. This story and the romance was impeccable. I loved it and cannot wait for more in the series. Bring on Logan (Gabe's brother). I definitely recommend this book! I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest and voluntary review.

    I loved the premise of this book. After a series of weekend flings in New Orleans, suddenly Gabe & Addison find themselves living just blocks from each other. This should be easy right? Well , neither one mentioned their 5y/o child during the flings. Now taking this relationship to a new level is not so simple. There are children and parenting styles to account for. I really liked how some of the challenges of single parenting were addressed ( loved the support group) and how both G & A I loved the premise of this book.

It is a very cleverly written book, with some really sweet and heart rending moments, as well as some very raunchy ones. Given how they started their acquaintance it is fun to see them work hard to keep that spontaneity and yet at times just know they have to hold back. Parents will probably recognise some of themselves in both Gabe and Addison - and the lessons that they both learn by considering each others views. It is something that two parents who were always together would probably not even notice, but I liked the dynamic that is created. Some of the humour is just inspired, and really made me laugh. If you want a cheerful sexy read, this will definitely work - and you will learn quite a lot about alligators too; I am looking forward to sharing my new found knowledge!

To sum it up, the story is sweet, cute and safe, but nothing you’ve never read before.

    Are they permanently in lust or accidentally in love? With a steamy backdrop like New Orleans Nicholas' works her magic. Going Down Easy is meant to be memorable and with a duo like Gabe and Addison, it certainly is. When a booty call becomes the real deal, there are tough choices to be made and long withheld truths to be revealed. If the spice of life serves as the food of the heart, Erin Nicholas' has cooked up a tempting treat.

    This book I struggled with a little at the beginning. The reason was Addison. She liked things as a fling and then used her daughter as an excuse to end things. She thought Gabe would run for the hills when he found out she had a child. That seems a little harsh! And then she was mad upset when he didn't. Just made me struggle to get through it, and when I did, the story was good again. But to be honest, I almost didn't finish the book because of it.

When she explains that she has a kid he immediately starts talking about how he's always wanted more kids and maybe jokingly maybe not proposing and deciding that they and the kids should all have dinner that night even though it's repeatedly noted that they barely know each other. When she says she's not interested in that (and has never indicated prior to this that she would be) his response is "want to explain how come you keep..spreading your legs for me" but don't want our kids to meet. To go straight from a once a month fling to lets introduce our kids is crazy. But his disgusting reaction to her incredibly polite rejection to turn it into more is really disturbing to me. Dnf

So what happens when she takes a job in New Orleans, where the bar is that Gabe owns and helps run? When Gabe finds out she was going to break it off, will he withdraw and let her go or will he fight for the relationship Addison is determined not to have? This book is different in that Ms. Nicholas has created two characters who are both single parents who face the challenge in far different ways. One does it totally alone and wants no interference or help from anyone else and the other leans on family a little too heavily. The challenge is not only the relationship of two people, but the relationship of two single parents and their children. Is it really possible to make it all work out? Another great Erin Nicholas book! I received a copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
