The Beau & The Belle – Release Day + Review!

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC for The Beau and The Belle and now IT’S RELEASE DAY! I AM SO EXCITED TO SHARE MY FEELINGS WITH YOU!!

I’ve been a fan of R.S. Grey for a while.  I’ve binge read all of her books on KU when I realized they were there.  She is the QUEEN of sweet, sexy, rom-com novels. So when I saw she was in New Orleans doing research for a novel I got extremely excited. EXTREMELY EXCITED Y’ALL.  And I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of The Beau and The Belle and I LOVED it. I’m super pumped to be sharing the release with you today!

Beau Fortier starred in most of my cringe-worthy teenage fantasies.

I met him when I was a junior in high school, a time that revolved exclusively around bad hair, failed forays into flirting, and scientific inquiries into which brand of toilet paper worked best for stuffing bras.

That is, until Beau moved into the small guest house just beyond my bedroom window.

A 24-year-old law student at Tulane, Beau was as mysterious to me as second base (both in baseball and in the bedroom). He was older. Intimidating. Hot. Boys my age had chicken legs and chubby cheeks. Beau had calloused hands and a jaw cut from steel. Our interactions were scarce—mostly involving slight stalking on my end—and yet deep down, I desperately hoped he saw me as more of a potential lover than a lovesick loser.

Turns out, I was fooling myself. My fragile ego learned that lesson the hard way.

Now, ten years later, we’re both back in New Orleans, and guess who suddenly can’t take his eyes off little ol’ me.

My old friend, Mr. Fortier.

But things have changed. I’m older now—poised and confident. My ego wears a bulletproof vest. The butterflies that once filled my stomach have all perished.

When I was a teenager, Beau warned me to guard my heart.

Let’s hope he knows how to guard his.

When I got this arc in my email I was so excited to read it.  I may or may not have pushed aside all of my school required reading to start it…

TB&TB follows Beau and Lauren- from their first meeting when she was a high school girl with a crush and then again 10 years later.

Now, Grey often has me giggling when reading her books, but I was outright snorting in TB&TB. Lauren had me cracking up at her odd moments.  She was a hilariously relatable character.  And I absolutely loved her mom- they reminded me of a couple of aunts I have.  What I loved about Lauren is was even though she was shy, she had this unexpected confidence about her.  I loved her as a teenager, and I adored her as an adult.

Now for Beau.  Oh, Beau. I love Beau in every shape and age he came in.  He was a sweet, Southern mama’s boy with a whole lot of hot, confident man.  I loved how he was with Lauren, especially when he decides to go after what he wants- her.

I loved Beau and Lauren’s dynamic.  I loved everything about this story, to be honest.  Grey is still the queen of hilarious romances for me.  The Beau & The Belle had me enjoying every minute of the story, and now I can’t wait for Mardi Gras – Lord knows I have a weakness for King Cake like Lauren does.


Run, don’t walk to get your hands on The Beau & The Belle! And it’s available now!
