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.

Review by Lisa Kane

Beau Fortier is studying law in New Orleans. He’s in his mid-twenties, has a ton of ambition and is determined to make something of himself for he and his mom. Years ago, his family had money, but then fell on hard times. Once you lose money, the old guard in New Orleans can close ranks quickly. He’s renting some living space on the grounds of the LeBlanc family, one of the oldest families in New Orleans.

I have a singular goal: to restore the Fortier name to what it once was. 

The LeBlanc’s have a daughter, Lauren, who is the apple of their eye. She’s a junior in high school and she’s gorgeous, smart and currently obsessed with Preston Wescott. He’s the heartthrob at her school. He’s a player and Lauren wouldn’t mind playing with him.
But once Lauren lays eyes on Beau she has a hard time thinking about anything else. For Beau, she’s forbidden fruit. She’s 17, he’s a grown man. He might feel an attraction for her and he comes to value their friendship, but he’s not going there.

A natural disaster comes between them and their lives follow separate paths. Lauren doesn’t hear from Beau for ten years. She goes to college, moves to New York, dates a few guys and decides to return to New Orleans. 

Beau is no longer the struggling student. He’s 35, is the cofounder and CEO of Crescent Capital, a New Orleans based investment company. He’s wealthy and the darling of New Orleans. He’s aware Lauren is back in town. It’s game on!

My parents are throwing a 12th night party that happens to coincide with my being back in New Orleans.

Beau knows Lauren won’t exactly welcome seeing him with open arms. 

The rules have changed. Back then, her beauty was irrelevant, like a delicate work of art tucked safely behind museum glass. The thought never entered my mind to cross the velvet rope-she was too young, I was too old…

Lauren sees the ghost of her past when she looks at Beau. She knows she was young and he was a man, but that didn’t lessen the hurt any. 

But when it comes to him…I’m still the same emotional teenage girl I always was. 

Like every RS Grey book the Beau & The Belle is funny and flows so quickly that you can’t stop yourself from reading it in one sitting. The characters are intelligent and snarky and loveable. Ms.Grey has another hit on her hands!

“Did you think about me in the decade we were apart?”
