Publisher's Summary

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.

it takes two

Gabe and Addison couldn't be more real without jumping off the page. Erin Nicholas spun a web that pulled me in and transported me. This story of two single parents wading through life and looking for that shining star is absolutely phenomenal. Ryan West, no words can describe the emotions he poured into this book and into me.

3 stars

This was my first book by this author. While it was just ok, it didn't have that extra spark in a romance and I didn't really connect with the main characters. Ryan was a good choice for narrator.

Sweet with no depth

This is a sweet romance that could have been much better. We started off knowing about Addison’s job, and her past leaving me to believe that would come into play later. That never developed. The entire plot revolved around the H/h relationship with non of the secondary plot interfering. There was hardly any tension or drama or mystery to hold interest. All in all this is a cute, sweet with a little hot sex book.

Enjoyed

I think I prefer the style of diet reading, but Ryan West did very well. I enjoyed the book, and will look for the next one.

Going down easy

Interesting way to write novel with so many twists and turns. Reminds me of the "it takes a village to raise a child!"

Couldn’t put it down!

I loved this story so much! I would find myself taking the longer route so I could listen longer!

Not Always Easy in The Big Easy

Overall, not a bad start to a new series! I like the single parent theme. I like that the main characters aren't too young. I like that they are in a single parent support group with varied members of all ages, genders and incomes. Of course, love wins in the end and the characters get their happy ending but not without having their hang ups to deal with first. Standard romance story protocols. There is sex too, of course. I skip if there's more than one or two of those scenes cause it's just boring to listen to after that. My one big problem with this story was the female lead- she's the mom to 5 yr old Stella. Right from the beginning when we find out she has a daughter, she complains about having her. How she didn't plan it but wouldn't have an abortion, the father was a deadbeat, she didn't have any support, how Stella was always there and she never had any personal time. As if that wasn't enough, she is pretty rude about Gabe having a son and how she has no interest in any more kids. Of course after behaving this way, she eventually starts changing her mind and then they spend all their time together as a family. So kind of wishy washy. It just doesn't present very well to the reader. Anyone who is a parent has doubts, fears, challenges. It's normal. I'm sure each person has questioned whether they should have become a parent at all at some point. But by the female character's behavior, it sounds more like regret all the time. Like she doesn't want to be bothered so she raises Stella to be as independent as possible. Ryan West did a superb narrating job.

Single Parents together

Gabe and Addison meet and have a once a month weekend affair in New Orleans then Addison travels back to New York City. What happens when Addison moves to New Orleans and they can see each other more than that once a month? They find out things about each other like both are single parents. Addison doesn't want any help raising her daughter and Gabe has support and wants more support from Addison. Gabe anonymously invites Addison to a single parents club where she meets other single parents and finds out that it is nice to have support. The road to happiness isn't without it's bumps but it's wonderful to see their relationship and their children's relationship develop. I loved the narration by Ryan West! This is the first time I've heard him and I hope it isn't the last! Erin Nicholas has written a great start to this new series and I can't wait for the next book!
