Gabrielle Boudreaux, the youngest of the Boudreaux clan, is a single mother of her young son, Sam. Running a Bed and Breakfast at the family plantation house at the edge of the Mississippi River, Gabby loves her inn, her boy and her family. She meets new people every day, and takes pride in the house and land that has been in her family for more than five generations. Blessed beyond measure, she’s also lonely, although she would never admit that to anyone. Until Rhys O’Shaughnessy walks through her door, brooding and wounded and the sexiest thing she’s ever laid eyes on.
Rhys has been at the top of his game as a major league pitcher for the Chicago Cubs for more than ten years. Baseball is in his blood. But when he tears his rotator cuff and has to sit a season out, he retreats to Inn Boudreaux at the recommendation of his cousin, Kate, to heal and work toward building his shoulder back to perfect shape with only one goal in mind: to return to the game he loves. But he didn’t plan on being utterly charmed by a devastatingly beautiful woman and her baseball-loving son.
When Rhys’ shoulder has healed and he’s given the chance to return to his team, will he leave the family he’s come to love behind, or will he stay with Gabby and Sam?
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.
Easy Charm and Rhys completely charmed me *sigh*. I love relaxing with Kristen’s books and catching up with her characters and getting to know their love interest in each new story. It’s like coming home and catching up with friends after being away for a few months.
I love baseball and baseball players (hello, tight pants anyone?) so suffice it to say Rhys had me crushing and swooning like a school girl with a crush. Don’t judge me! He was sweet, romantic, and respectful, with a bit of a bossy streak when needed 😉
I really liked seeing he and Gabby together. From the start, they both seemed to have this easy rapport with one another and I couldn’t wait to see their connection deepen. I also loved seeing Rhys with Gabby’s son, Sam.
Hot guy + kid=
There was a surprise I didn’t expect, but it made me happy and made clap my hands in delight, and one confrontation that made me slightly saddened it didn’t end with a good swift kick to the crotch! I got over that quickly because Kristen made it up to me with everything that took place after those events.
I know Declan’s book is next and I’m excited to get to know his story and catch up with my friends. And see what Gabby and Rhys are up to. I really liked these two a lot and I miss them already 🙁
