Book Review: The Easy Way by May Archer


Camden Seaver had it easy - a loving family, plenty of money, and the freedom to follow his dreams while his older brother, Sebastian, took charge of the family business. But when a tragic plane crash killed his parents, all the responsibilities he never wanted landed firmly on his shoulders. Now saddled with his crazy, grief-stricken brother and his dad’s multimillion dollar company, Cam doesn’t trust in dreams anymore. He’s forgotten what “easy” feels like.

FBI Agent Kendrick “Cort” Cortland learned the hard way that he couldn’t depend on anyone but himself. Before joining the FBI, the one constant in his life was his foster brother, Damon - and then Damon disappeared. Now, Cort is determined to find his brother and to bring down the man responsible for ruining Damon’s life, Sebastian Seaver. He’s got nothing left to lose.

When Cort’s investigation leads him to Seaver Tech...and Camden Seaver...what started as a quest for revenge and a one-night deception quickly turns into far more than either man bargained for. But how can either man trust in something that seems so easy? As long-held secrets are revealed, the attraction between Cam and Cort becomes combustible - an undeniable love that will either make or destroy them. Will Cam and Cort let their conflicting loyalties drive them apart? Or will they decide that sometimes love is the easy way?


4 Stars!!!

FBI Agent Kendrick "Cort" Cortland's brother, Damon, disappeared after a plane he was supposed to be piloting crashed. However, after Cort's discovered investigating the older son of the family that died in the accident and is suspended from work, he decides it's time to meet the younger Seaver sibling and see what he knows about his brother. Only he didn't count on Cam being just Cort's type or that the man would get under his skin after just one night together. However attracted they are to each other, though, Cort doesn't think Cam will be too happy when he learns that Cort hasn't been telling him the whole truth about himself or his motives. 

I loved Cam, he was such a sweet, lovable guy. I adored that even if he was attracted to Cort, he wasn't a doormat and held his ground quite nicely. I liked Cort, too, perhaps not as much as Cam, but he was loyal and protective. The chemistry between Cort and Cam was out of this world and damn, I swear I thought my kindle would catch fire at some point with some of their steamy sex scenes. It wasn't just that, though, they had incredible rapport and it was lovely to see them interact and have fun together. It was a bit of instalove, but it worked well for them.

The Easy Way was well-written, very enjoyable and fast-paced and while I can't recommend it enough, I have to add that I felt the ending was a bit rushed and there were some things that weren't resolved, so I'm hoping there'll be at least another book to tie it all up.
