The Bourbon Street Boys Book One
When a mysterious text message summons May Wexler to a biker bar in downtown New Orleans, she knows something is very wrong. Her sister has sent out an SOS, but when May gets there, she’s nowhere to be found and May is the one in trouble—she’s wearing pink espadrilles, she’s got a Chihuahua in her purse, and she’s in the middle of a shootout.
After tall, muscular Ozzie comes to her rescue, May has no choice but to follow him to safety. At the headquarters of his private security firm, the Bourbon Street Boys, she finds a refuge for the night—and the offer of a job. But it’s not long before a gun-toting stalker isn’t the only complication in May’s life: the more time she spends with Ozzie, the less she can deny that they’ve got some serious chemistry. A wrong number got her into this mess…Will it also get her the right guy?
First off, let me start by saying that this book was full of humor. It was an incredibly funny, sweet romance that had you chuckling, and feeling like everything May thought or said would be something you totally would do too. Relatable, quirky, and fun, you’ll fully enjoy this novel.
May Wexler is a photographer by trade. She has a good eye and a good heart. Her single, arms-full-with-children sister has a great sister in May. Which is why when May confuses a text she gets thinking it’s from her sister, when in reality it definitely isn’t, she’s off like a flash to save her, but it definitely isn’t her sister that’ll need saving. Throughout the debacle that is May’s luck, we are comically entertained by the thoughts that she has about her new “exciting” life that is being a part of the Bourbon Street Boys security firm. She’s a freakin’ hoot, and I loved her wit along with her ability to keep it real. Because honestly, who doesn’t worry about tooting while struggling hard to lift weights?
What she’ll find in this group of misfits is that they all fit…together. May will find where she’s needed, what she’s capable of, and just exactly what she loves to do. And being in the arms of her handsome new boss definitely helps matters, even if it also complicates things. I loved this book. It’s exactly the kind of light-hearted read that we all need when life can be so hard, and crave something to uplift us. Elle Casey’s writing is easy to read and laugh-out-loud funny. You won’t regret reading this one, and you’ll be eager for more of the series.
