Synopsis from Goodreads
No one said change was easy…
Savannah Boudreaux knows what it is to hurt. To bleed. To be afraid that the man she’s promised to be true to until “death do us part” might in fact separate them far sooner than anyone had ever anticipated. But Van also knows what it is to survive. To move on. To live life to the fullest. With five brothers and sisters and a loving mother as her constant source of strength during the pain and the healing, Van realizes there is little else she needs.
But some things never change…
Benjamin Preston sat on the sidelines of the Boudreaux family for years, in love with a woman he couldn’t have. As the best friend of the Boudreaux brothers since childhood, Ben has seen both tragedies and joys in the family. And as a former MMA fighter and Krav Maga expert, Ben’s used to fighting for what he wants—and winning. His hands were tied when Savannah married her high school sweetheart not long after graduation, but now two years have passed since Ben found Savannah broken in her own home.
Sometimes what you need most has been right in front of you the whole time…
Van’s convinced that happiness isn’t in the cards for her, no matter how right it feels to be in Ben’s strong arms—and his bed. Ben is determined to win her heart and fight for her trust. He’s promised to protect her, to be her friend. But more than anything, he wants to finally make her his, and this is one fight he’s not willing to lose.
It has been a privileged to watch Savannah’s journey through the Boudreaux series, from the traumatic incident in Easy Love to the strong, independent woman Savannah has blossomed into in Easy Nights.
Ben and Savannah have loved each other for a very long time but neither were willing to take the chance on anything other than friendship because of Ben’s close friendship with the other members of the Boudreaux family. However, the time has come when they are no longer able to deny their feelings or avoid acting on them. Ben has been hesitant to initiate a physical relationship with Savannah because of the torture she has already endured. I loved how determined Savannah was to prove she was able to thrive within intimate situations with Ben. The comfort, security and support they give each other and how these factors enhanced the passion between them.
Savannah’s journey has been a long and often painful one, especially with the knowledge she has kept hidden from her family and the effect it has on her future. Yet, Savannah has flourished with the help of her family, her therapist and sheer determination to live her life the way she wants to after being dictated to for so long.
Sadly, the past has a long reach affecting the present for Savannah and Ben. Kristen’s depiction of a sociopathic personality within the narrative was truly chilling.
Savannah’s resilience and positivity shine through the narrative, enabling her to take control of a seemingly impossible situation.
All of the beloved members of the Boudreaux family make an appearance in Easy Nights progressing their individual stories as well as providing a sense of completeness to the series as a whole.
Easy Nights is a heart-warming story of overcoming the pain of the past and embracing the happiness you deserve with the people who love and support you the most. Easy Nights is an amazing conclusion to the Boudreax series, with one of my favourite fictional families.
