Nothing has ever come easy for Lila Bailey. She’s fought for every good thing in her life during every day of her thirty-one years. Aside from that one night with an impossible to deny stranger a year ago, Lila is the epitome of responsible.
She’s pulled herself out of the train wreck of her childhood, proud to be a professor at Tulane University and laying down roots in a city she’s grown to love. But when some of her female students are viciously murdered, Lila’s shaken to the core and unsure of whom she can trust in New Orleans. When the police detective assigned to the murder case comes to investigate, she’s even more surprised to find herself staring into the eyes of the man that made her toes curl last year.
In an attempt to move on from the tragic loss of his wife, Asher Smith moved his daughter and himself to a new city, ready for a fresh start. A damn fine police lieutenant, but new to the New Orleans force, Asher has a lot to prove to his colleagues and himself.
With a murderer terrorizing the Tulane University campus, Asher finds himself toe-to-toe with the one woman that haunts his dreams. His hands, his lips, his body know her as intimately as he’s ever known anyone. As he learns her mind and heart as well, Asher wants nothing more than to keep her safe, in his bed, and in his and his daughter’s lives for the long haul.
But when Lila becomes the target, can Asher save her in time, or will he lose another woman he loves?
I received this book from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
She’s so fucking sexy I can hardly breathe.
“I want to fuck you, Lila.”
“Oh good.” She swallows. “We’re on the same page. I want to fuck you too.”
“No, sweetheart.” I grin and lower my face beside hers. I’m not touching her, but I can feel her. Our skin is almost touching, and I know I’m making her crazy.
I’m making me fucking crazy.
“I’m going to fuck you.” I drag my nose along her earlobe and grin when she shivers. “But first, I think we could use something to cool us off.”
“Cool us off?” she whispers.
Without touching her, I back away, take her hand and walk to the small wet bar in my room, open a bottle of Patrón that one of the guys at the precinct gave me, slice a lime and reach for the salt shaker sitting on my room service tray from lunch, relieved that I forgot to set it in the hallway on my way out this afternoon.
“Have you ever done body shots?” I ask her. She’s watching me closely, her hip leaning against the counter, arms crossed over her chest.
“No.” She shakes her head and bites her lip.
“Wanna do them with me?”
“I’ll go first.” I pull her to me, her stomach against my pelvis, and push her hair over her shoulder. “Tip your head back, please.”
She complies, and I lick a short path down the side of her neck, making her breath catch. God, she’s so damn responsive. I shake a little salt on the wet spot, then lick it clean, take the shot, and suck on the lime.
Her eyes never leave me. I love that she’s not shy.
Easy With You had me swooning over Asher, biting my cuticles with trying to find out who the murderer was, and Lila and Casey’s scenes together made my heart happy! Easy With You was a great blending of my beloved Seattle Series (Asher was Matt Montgomery’s partner on the police force) and The Boudreaux series (Lila is Kate’s BFF). It was a super quick read for me, but I was still left feeling happy and satisfied. I’m hoping to get a few more glimpses of them in the forthcoming Boudreaux series books <3
