The sexiest, swoonist, and most adorable beginning to a Boys of the Bayou book EVER!!

I fell in love with Griffin when I met him in Four Weddings and a Swamp Boat Tour and that love is now eternal after Otterly Irresistible. There is something about a grumpy hero who has a soft spot for animals that just melts my soul. The grouchier they are the harder they fall and I’ll just say that Griffin is extra grouchy when this book begins.

Charlotte “Charlie” Landry is in Autre for her cousins’ weddings. Yes, that is plural, but that is entirely different story all together and while Charlie and Griffin meet during this momentous occasion, their story is entirely their own and revolves around otters, goats, and pigs…oh my!

Griffin is one grumpy vet with a gruff exterior who cares more about animals than he does about people. When Charlie asks him to dance he says no, but she is a girl who doesn’t take the word no lightly so his challenging gruffness calls to her need to never hear that word. Their very opposite views on, well basically everything, is adorable and just down right…delightful to read.

Otterly Irresistlbe is completely endearing, not only with all of the animals, but also with Charlie’s never ending supply of energy and ideas, but also with Griffin’s tender loving nature around every living creature and the dominate way he handles Charlie—yum.

This is the first book in a new Gone Wild series, but you’ll also get moments of catching up with favorite characters from the Bayou. I loved every moment of where Erin is taking us in this new Bayou adventure and I’m very excited for the ride.


What happens when a smoking hot, but grouchy vet meets a sunny and sassy optimist? An opposites attract, grumpy boss, small town romance that’s otterly irresistible.

Broody wildlife veterinarian Griffin Foster is done. Done trying to save the world. Done getting attached. He’s been fired twice for standing his ground and now he’s going to be content — by God — in small-town Louisiana, in a small veterinary practice, where there will only be small problems.

Quiet and boring, though? Um, no. He’s been adopted by a loud, crazy Cajun family with a tiny petting zoo for him to care for. Hey, it’s not endangered tigers at a nationally renowned zoo, but a family of otters — and all the gumbo he can eat — isn’t a bad deal.

Until she shows up. Again.

The sunny, gorgeous optimist who stole his heart — and his favorite shirt — two months ago. Who clearly hasn’t heard the word “no” enough in her life. And who is the first woman to put even a tiny crack in his don’t-get-attached wall.

Charlotte “Charlie” Landry is the new marketing consultant for the family swamp-boat tour company and petting zoo. It might not have been her plan, but she is all in, ready to grow the business. Whether the hot, grumpy vet likes it or not.

He doesn’t.

Worse, sparring with his unforgettable one-night stand is more fun than he’s had in a long time.

But watching wears-designer-dresses Charlie find her dream job amongst a bunch of goats, alpacas, and otters is a surprise.

And her helping him find his passion again is… well, irresistible.
