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.

 My Review

5 Stars!!!!

Rachel Grey is like the queen of romantic-comedies! This book was no exception! This had me laughing throughout the book.

Her characters are so relate-able because they are real and make embarrassing mistakes. Lauren is no exception. Lauren as a teenager was like all of us pining and crushing for someone who we thought didn’t notice us. Lauren as an adult was just as heart-warming. She is accomplished but has fears and insecurities. She has embarrassing moments and is just so honest and quirky! It was refreshing to read about a character that is so real.

Beau is just wonderful. I loved everything about him. He is persistent and very determined in his job and love life. The chemistry between the two of them is off the charts and it was hot!

I loved the setting of New Orleans. The description was amazing and made me wished I was in New Orleans celebrating Mardi Gras right now! The city was so vibrant and alive that it is on my list to see!

Rachel Grey does an amazing job with her writing. It flows nicely and is so easy to read. I can never put her books down. Once I start a book by her, I can’t stop and end up finishing it in one sitting. This book definitely delivered that. I couldn’t put it down. It had comedic moments but also some very romantic moments too. I wanted more!

This was another amazing book and she seems to create a new favorite book of hers every time she releases a new book! A must read and must buy! I know I’m going to pre-order this when it is on Amazon; everyone needs to go pre-order it too!
