The Beau & the Belle by R.S. Grey

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...

    4.5 "the Queen of rom-coms delivers once more" stars!!An extract of the dialogue that took place between my Brain and my Heart after I finished The Beau & the Belle is cited below. There might be some inconsistencies because I was still flushed from the sizzling chemistry between Lauren and Beau. You have been warned.Brain: *cries in silence*Heart: What is wrong, Brain? I thought we were happy.Brain: Error 404.Heart: What?Brain: My cells cannot f...

    4.5 stars! You can have all my money, Ms. Grey. Have it all. Even my soul. Your books feed it anyway; you might as well have it. Reading The Beau and the Belle brought butterflies to my stomach and a perma-smile on my face! The hero made me swoon, and the heroine made me laugh so much. Plus, it's set in New Orleans, a place I've always wanted to visit.Remember when we were in high school and we daydreamed about crushes? The popular upperclassman,...

    *****FOUR STARS*****{ARC Generously Provided by Author}This is the kiss I wanted 10 years ago. This is what I begged him for, and now that I have it, I don’t want to let it go.THE BEAU AND THE BELLE is a sweet second chance romance between two people who couldn’t act on their feelings the first time they became a part of each other’s lives but ten years later things have changed and now it’s a battle of wills that stand in their way.

    Blurb misleading, plot execution weak :( The plot:Lauren and Beau first meet when Beau rents a room in their house. He is 24 whereas she is 17. Lauren practically throws herself at him at every chance but he acts in the most proper way, saying that she is too young for him. He finds her beautiful but he never acts upon it and he never lets her seduce him even when she appears in his bedroom one night. He is a perfect guy in so many ways. Also, he...

    4.5 starsOMG this book!!!!!I jumped into this book blind, because at this point, whatever RS GREY writes I'll read. She is the author of one of my all time favorite novels SCORING WILDER and her books just work for me.The Beau & The Belle was a fantastic novel, featuring one of the most endearing heroines. Lauren LeBlanc was engaging, funny, sweet, dorky, and all in all a truly unique and distinctive character. I would love to call her my best fr...

    So, I popped my R.S. Grey cherry on this one.Yep... and I loved it! This was a fun, contemporary, second chance romance.I will admit, the blurb on this one is, IMO, misleading.Well, I picked this up thinking I'd be getting an alphahole hero and a tough as nails badass heroine who as gonna teach alphahole hero a lesson. Yeah, sooo not that. 24-year-old Beau was actually a perfect gentleman when 17-year-old Lauren tries desperately to put the moves...

  • MELISSA *Mel Reader*
    4.5 Stars! Lauren LeBlanc is a 17 yr. old junior in high school that comes from one of the oldest families in New Orleans. She grew up in New Orleans society as a debutante attending cotillions. She was sweet, innocent, & completely naive when it came to boys. Then a hot older guy moves in to the guest house apartment her family is renting. His name is Beau Fortier. He’s a 24 yr. old law student at Tulane with big dreams to build up his family ...
  • Ashley (5171MilesBooks)
    Read this review and many more at: 5171 Miles Book Blog.I don't know how R.S. Grey manages to write hit after hit. She's has nailed her niche and I doubt she could write a bad book. Her stories never fail to make me laugh out loud, read through the entire day or night, and fall in love along with her characters. While I'm reading, I feel like I'm watching a Jen Aniston ROM-COM or something of the like. I want to crawl inside and stay in the happy...

  • ♥~♥Geri Reads ♥~♥
    *SPOILERS AHOY!Sigh. This disappointed me greatly because the blurb has so much promise. I read the blurb and my mind just went I WANT! But it was disappointing.First of all, the blurb totally overstated the nature of the conflict between a 17-year old teenage girl and a 24-year old adult. The blurb suggested that Beau did something horrible that crushed Lauren's teenage heart. NOPE. It was just Beau doing the right thing by refusing a 17-year ol...

    4.25/5 stars➹ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review➷ This is one those novels where you just instantly know that you are going to fall in love with it no matter what happens. The Beau and The Belle is a story about teenage crushes and second chances. It is everything I wanted in a rom-com novel and more. It's funny and fast-paced, witty and swoon-worthy. Right from the prologue, I've fallen in love with Beau Fortier, the ...

    ”3 Stars”This was a pretty good reading. I enjoyed it but I didn’t love it. It was quite better than her last book “The Fortunate Ones” which I appreciated! The cover is cute! The couple was lovely. The storyline was petty nice but for me there were parts that I felt something was missing. I mean don’t get me wrong I enjoyed it and they were some funny moments too, just I felt something was off from time to time. Maybe it’s just me ...

    Review coming soon, but I LOVED this one. So sweet and swoony and full of humor that makes you laugh out loud!

    “I don’t think you’re here because you’re angry. I think you’re curious.”“You know what, I’m not that curious. Want to know why? I’ve imagined it so many times that I doubt you’ll be able to stack up. You know: never fuck your heroes.” Every single time R.S. Grey comes out with another absolutely DELIGHTFUL rom-com, it ends up jumping to the top of my list of FAVORITES for the year, and her latest, THE BEAU & THE BELLE is no...
  • Dali
    Happy Book birthday!!Grey returns to the romantic comedy genre with a deliciously fun, cute and sexy read. I was in stitches holding my side half the time and smiling like a loon the other. The Beau and the Belle introduces us to Beau Fortier and Lauren LeBlanc. Ten years ago, Beau was a driven law student looking to finish school and a place to rent while Laruen was a junior in high school trying to figure out about boys and flirting. Beau was n...

    4.5 starsPerfect for the lovelies who enjoy a good, slow-build romance. And New Orleans as background.
  • Rachel Regina
    Okay, I wasn’t going to write a review but I needed to vent about a few things. This book started off strong IMO. I flew through almost the first 60% of the book, but then it fell really really flat. I guess I was waiting for the hero to woo her or something. Instead he just shows up a few times. No passion whatsoever. He references his past sexcapes as well at least once in front of the heroine and that pisses me off. He was a jerk to her befo...

    Whenever a new RS Grey book comes out, I am always counting down the days until I can read it. All I knew about this book was that it took place in New Orleans and I couldn’t wait to dive in! When Beau Fortier rents her parents’ guest house as he finishes up his last year of law school, Lauren doesn’t really think anything of it. Until she spends a little more time with Beau and starts growing a crush. Big time. But, being the naive awkward...
  • Mandy
    Loved this book!!! Lauren is one of my favorite heroines ever! She's quirky and hilarious. I loved high school Lauren and how unsure of herself she was. It brought me back to those moments of my first crush and all the embarrassing things that happened to me in front of him. Adult Lauren was more self assured but never lost her quirkiness and humor. She was successful and driven, fun and intelligent. Beau is everything a good book hero should be....
  • ~Kristin~
    4+ StarsAnother delightful rom/com...a lot of fun!!I just want to add, as much as I enjoyed this book, the ending was a bit frustrating. There was so much talk about NOLA, I would have loved to have been there for the soft opening and then later in the epilogue, to have known how it was doing. Then there was the house, I would have loved to see how the gift to his mother went. I just think there was so much talk about these things, I wanted a bit...

    I think I was annoyed with the heroine 80% of the time.She is the most insecure heroine I know.H is older by 5-6 years and she was 17 when they met.High school h was even worse, had zero self esteem obviously had a gorgeous best friend who was perfect in every way even when they got older.The h and H had to split because of the circumstances.She has a crummy sex life with only 1 ex lover who obviously is pathetic.H had a normal life, not a manwho...

    Oh, SWOOOOOOOOOOON of all swoons, this book was SO SWEET. Seriously, my heart is one big mushy, ooey gooey mess after reading The Beau & The Belle. This delightfully tender gem of a Rom Com was so freaking good, so funny, so sweet. RS Grey layers heartache and longing together with lush romance and heartwarming humor to make for yet ANOTHER unputdownable story that I enjoyed completely. Lauren and Beau's story is set against the steamy backdrop o...

    *ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review*5++++ "Laissez le bon temps rouler" Stars!!!!!!!AHHHHHHHH!!!!! I have a permanent smile on my face and there’s nothing anyone can do to take it away. Well, unless your grabby hands takes the last slice of pizza, then you’re in for it. No, you know what? Not even THAT can take this gigantic smile off my face, you want to know why? Because I just finished reading the most AH-MAZING RomCom’...

    ★4.5 STARS★At seventeen Lauren is the quirky southern belle who falls in love with the lodger in her parent’s guest house. At 24 Beau is driven and worldly and nothing like the boys at school. As much as he appears to try to keep her at arm’s length, they always seem to find themselves in situations lead to Lauren falling for him more. Annoyingly for her Beau is the perfect gentleman. He’s patient and respectful, and no matter how much ...

We learn all about her silly mannerisms and and interests as well as her infatuation with the college boy renting her parents apartment. It’s been said that eyes are little windows to the soul, bu...

    News Flash: I’m a big fan of RS Grey. When I became a blogger a little over a year ago, I had no idea that I was going to be able to review books by major authors like herself. I was blown away when I received an ARC of Anything You Can Do. I was officially hooked. So whenever her books come out, I just dive right in, no preamble required.One of the reasons I love anticipating Rachel’s books is because the covers are some of my favorites! I l...

    3,5 stars actually because I did laugh a lot while reading this book but, for me, the magic wore off around the 75% mark. I don’t really know what started to bother me or why I went from wanting to draw hearts all over my Kindle to an overall “Meh, okay” feeling. Lauren is a hilarious and sweet girl and I had so much fun being in her head for a few days. Beau is a pretty standard romance novel guy, the generic kind with no exceptional trait...

This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.I had a hard time with this book. Every time I started to enjoy the story, something negative would happen that made me enjoy it less. This happened many times throughout the book.The story is told in two parts, when Lauren is in high school and Beau moves...
