Review & Excerpt Tour ~ EASY FOR KEEPS by Kristen Proby


Adam Spencer loves women. All women. Every shape and size, regardless of hair or eye color, religion or race, he simply enjoys them all. Meeting more than his fair share as the manager and head bartender of The Odyssey, a hot spot in the heart of New Orleans’ French Quarter, Adam’s comfortable with his lifestyle, and sees no reason to change it. A wife and kids, plus the white picket fence are not in the cards for this confirmed bachelor. Until a beautiful woman, and her sweet princess, literally knock him on his ass. 

Sarah Cox has just moved to New Orleans, having accepted a position as a social worker specializing in at-risk women and children. It’s a demanding, sometimes dangerous job, but Sarah is no shy wallflower. She can handle just about anything that comes at her, even the attentions of one sexy Adam Spencer. Just because he’s charmed her daughter, making her think of magical kingdoms with happily ever after, doesn’t mean that Sarah believes in fairy tales. But the more time she spends with the enchanting man, the more he begins to sway her into believing in forever. 

Even so, when Sarah’s job becomes more dangerous than any of them bargained for, will she be ripped from Adam’s life forever?

REVIEW by Heather:

This was a quick read. I have always been interested in finding out more about Adam. He has always peaked my interest. Once you start reading this novella, you will not be able to put it down. It was all the angst, alpha and swoon that we have all come to love from Kristen Proby. The only complaint I have is that I knew it was a novella going in, and I still wanted more. I didn't want the story to end.

Adam and Hailey have a connection immediately. As we all know Adam is a ladies man, a manwhore. He is never into seeing the woman more than one time. He gets what he wants, as do they. But what was it about Hailey that made him look twice. What made him feel the need to protect her immediately. Hailey is a single mom, with a daughter. So there must be something special about her to stop Adam in his tracks. He not only changes his tune for a woman, but for her child. He accepted her for who she was, what her past consisted of and vowed that he would never let anything happen to her. So what happens when Hailey's life is in danger? Will Adam follow through on his promises? Life is never easy, but when you find the one that makes it easy, you do your damnedest to keep them.


“Having trouble?” I ask and grin when she looks up at me in surprise. Hailey is buckled into
the back seat now and waves at me with a big smile, and I wave back.

“It was running fine when I left the apartment and came here.” She sighs and lays her
forehead against the steering wheel. She’s a pretty woman. She has curves in all the right places, but doesn’t wear clothes that hug them. Her hair is long and just begging for fingers to thread through it.

And her lips are plump and damn kissable. Especially when she bites them the way she’s doing right now as she lifts her head and looks up at me.

“Sounds like your battery is dead.”

“Great,” she replies and blows out a breath.

“Do you have someone you can call?”

She hesitates and then shakes her head no. She’s not quick to trust, that’s for sure, and for some reason, that makes me want to try to help all the more.

It’s been a while since a woman was a challenge.

“We just moved here,” Hailey informs me.


“It’s okay,” I reply. “I can call you a tow truck. I know a guy.”

She nods.

“But I have to tell him your name.”

“Sarah,” she replies. “I’m sorry, I don’t mean to be rude.”

“Hey, stranger danger. I get it.” I nod and text my friend, then stare at the two girls for a moment. I can’t just leave them here.

“I can take you wherever you needed to get to.”

“No,” Sarah replies immediately.

“Look, let’s start again. My name’s Adam. I’ve never been arrested for anything, and I’ve received two speeding tickets in my life. I co-own a bar in the Quarter, and that’s why I haven’t been to bed yet today. I can give you references to call if you really want them.”

Her lips twitch into a slight smile and her eyes calm. They’re not just brown. They’re rich, dark chocolate.

And she has a kid. Just be a Good Samaritan and go home to bed.
