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

This book should have the subtitle: Do not read in public. Uncontrolled bursts of laughter guaranteed!

Our heroes both work in the hospital. They are not really colleague, but the situation makes them work together.

At first Dr. Russell doesn’t make a good impression. He is grumpy and not very pleasant to be around. But behind the mask of a hard doctor, there is really a soft and warm heart.

Bailey is such a fanastic heroine. She’s funny and outspoken. You will like her from the first moment. She has a great relationship with her sister, Josie. Which by the way is another amazing character.

The plot is fast, light and you’ll read it with an uncontrolled smile on your face all the time. It’s the type of book that makes you feel good.

I don’t remember when I gave the book five stars so confidently. I had no doubts. I enjoyed it very much, there was a lot of laughter and swooning. As always the queen of RomCom did it again. I loved IT!

About The Author

rk5sonI am a lover of books, chocolate, reality TV, black labs, and cold weather. Seriously, if I had it my way, I would be curled up on the couch with all of those things… everyday.

I live in Texas where I spend my free time writing and reading. My favorite authors include Mindy Kaling & Jonathan Safran Foer. I’m a comedy geek and love all things “funny”. Women like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling are definitely the biggest inspirations for my writing, though I think my work tends to skew a bit smuttier than theirs.
