Easy To Lose is a stand-alone novel set in Kristen Proby’s Boudreaux Universe.
Leaving New York after my now ex-fiancé cheated on me was easy.
Moving back home to Miami to run Charly Boudreaux’s Head Over Heels expansion store, even as it scares the hell out of me…also easy.
Finding out that Owen Peters, my ex-best friend and the boy I fell in love with in high school, the one who broke my heart, works next door? Not quite so easy.
Hearing that Morgan Lawson is finally coming home makes me ecstatic. It provides me with a second chance—something I waited ten years to grasp.
Watching her struggle to accept the body she was born with, the one that makes me crazy with desire, allows me to show her exactly how beautiful she is, both inside and out—and how much she means to me.
Letting her go the first time was a huge mistake, and I refuse to go down that road again. Because not realizing how easy she was to lose, or how not having her in my life makes me feel incomplete, is something I never want to experience again.
**** My Review ****
Sweet, funny and quite sexy ‘Easy to Lose’ is one great example of second-chance romance that will most definitely take the readers on a real roller coaster of emotions.
Morgan and Owen- best friends in the past, separated by one unfortunate event and brought back together after twelve years. Many things have changed since the last time they saw each other, but one thing remains the same – that attraction that simply cannot be denied. She- funny and sassy, a bit insecure about her own appearance. He- one hell of a charmer. Sexy and swoon-worthy. And they together- a total deliciousness. But will they finally acknowledge how perfect are they for each other? Can they overcome the obstacles and embrace that tender emotion?
First time I read something by this author, and I am delighted by the way this author uses her gift to enable the readers to feel every single emotion that overwhelms the characters. It is really emotional story with sizzling chemistry and real, relatable characters. Morgan is a perfect example of an ordinary girl from our neighborhood, with real self-esteem issues and problems. Owen on the other hand is absolutely refreshing and delightful, every girl’s dream. The secondary characters are perfectly presented and blended into the whole story and truly complement the story. I have to add that some parts are a bit predictable, others a bit disruptive and definitely I would enjoy more angst. But those things certainly haven’t made the experience less pleasant.
Overall, it is a sweet and steamy read, a perfect blend of drama and emotions to keep readers engaged until the very end. If you’re looking for a perfect getaway into the world of fiction, then you should definitely consider this book.
****About the author****
S.A. Clayton lives in a small town outside of Toronto, Canada with her husband of five years and her scary large collection of books that seem to take over every room.
She has worked on both sides of the publishing industry, both in a bookstore and for actual publishing companies. Although she loved both for different reasons, she found that writing was her true passion and has spent the last few years breaking into the industry as best she can.
She is a lover of all things romance and began her writing journey in her late twenties. Since then, she has immersed herself in the romance genre and couldn’t be happier.
When she’s not writing or reading, she enjoys binging a great Netflix show (Stranger Things anyone?), baking (because who doesn’t love cookies!) and spending time with her family.
