About THE BEAU & THE BELLE
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.

I adore R.S Grey’s romantic comedies, the heroines are so awkward, so cute, hilarious and their inner conversations?? Just priceless.
That time, we’re settled in New Orleans, where the warmth and hot weather couldn’t compete with the sexual tension and slow burn romance in here. Let’s get it on…
The author explores young crush love turning into unrequited love. Lauren is seventeen and Beau almost in his mid twenties. Talking about forbidden, right? Lauren was such a breath of fresh air, a bit clumsy, rambling a lot, totally off beat when it came to her friends.
Living her first experiences as a teen, with this recklessness, having all the future ahead of her. Beau was totally helpless about that girl who was unexpected, making him smile a little bit too much for his liking.
One declaration, a hurricane coming and a rejection, here we go, ten years later. Lauren is now back and definitely motivated to give a run for his money, to show him that she was strong now.
Game on… I lost count of how many times I laughed so hard thanks to Lauren’s antics, her epic ramblings. She was a heroine people can relate to, through her aspirations and her very imaginative thoughts. Beau was just as infuriating than charming. He knew what he wanted and wasn’t afraid to go for it. Lauren didn’t know what was going to hit her.
The chemistry was off the charts, the banter entertaining, witty full of sass and incredibly addictive. The Beau and The Belle put a huge smile on face, feel good story, just what I needed to be in a good mood. A marvelous trip to New Orleans so fun and swoony!
