THE BEAU & THE BELLE – R.S. Grey – RELEASE DAY + REVIEW

The Beau & The Belle
R.S. Grey

Genre : Adult romantic comedy
♥♥♥♥♥ (insert infinite number of hearts here)

First of all, I want to start this post by talking about this amazing author.

There’s no way you have missed my love for R.S. Grey‘s work. It’s all over this blog, my Bookstagram and wherever I talk about books.

I am a true fan of her work and I really feel like there’s no better writer in her genre. Her novels are the perfect romantic comedies. I won’t ever stop recommending her work whenever I can to everyone because I really feel sad for those who haven’t read an R.S. Grey book yet. You’re missing out! So if you want to smile, laugh and fall in love, then pick up one of her book. Her characters are all endearing and you get attached so easily because they’re real! Her plotting is perfection and full of pleasant surprises. I really wish her work was even more recognised.

Apart from her books, R.S. Grey really is one of the most genuine author. Last thing I’ll advise you is to follow her on Instagram. Her stories are fun, real and you get a true behind the scene on her work (also adorable glimpses of her life!). She really is as inspiring as the heroines she writes about. Oh, and she has a Facebook group too! Full of fun interactions and exclusive contents from time to time.

Anyways, now that I confessed all the love I had for this talented author and her books, you’ll get how strong my next point is. You’re ready? Here it is : The Beau and the Belle is officially my new favourite book by her (which was previously The Foxe and the Hound). And that’s saying something. Keep reading to know why…

♥ The story 

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.

♥ My review 

If you like fast-paced, well written and amazingly described story, you’ll love The Beau & The Belle.

What made me fall in love with this book :

The Beau and the Belle is the occasion to relive your teenage years. The good and the bad parts. And I really loved that. You can easily identify to (almost) everything Lauren is facing. The crush, the first kiss, the insecurities, the innocent and naive way to view life. This made me go back in time and it felt good! Also, 90s born generation, get ready for awesome references that will make you miss this time.

The age gap between Beau and Lauren. I love when the male character is older. So if you’re like me…you’ll enjoy that immensely. This story was all I was expecting and so much more.

The New Orleans setting. This was definitely one of the best things about this book. It was so well described, it made me want to visit. I’m not from the US and I’ve never been there but if I ever visit, this will be my first destination.

The characters : Lauren was adorable. So genuine and funny. I loved how she stayed true to herself and how loyal she was. Beau was perfection. Need I say more ? Everything you expect an older guy to be. Dependable, mature, mysterious and so, so sexy. Their chemistry was mind-blowing and their love and attraction so endearing. I really liked both their families as well. They were some really fun parts and scenes. Okay, I’m off to re-read it!

I’m so excited for you all to read it. If you need a light, beautiful and fun read, this is it! And if it’s your first book by this author, it’ll definitely get you hooked to her style (believe me!).

♥♥♥♥♥

The Fortunate Ones by R.S. Grey was one of my most anticipated release of this year. Every time this author releases something I have to get my hands on it ASAP. It simply means a guaranteed good time for me. And once again she did not disappoint. I don’t know how she does it every single time. She’s truly talented.

Also, I had the great honor of receiving an ARC of this book for which I thank the author again, in exchange of an honest review.

♥ The story 

Brooke Davenport works as a cabana girl at Twin Oaks Country Club for sometime now, thanks to her elder sister Ellie. But that is not her dream job. She has a diploma and a talent for languages she actually plans to use. Having spent some time in Europe as an au pair, she wants to find that kind of job again and be able to teach. The only positive point in working at the country club is the gorgeous James Ashwood. She can admire him from afar and be content with that. Until the moment he asks her to “Come and have a seat“. Then, everything changes.

Arm Candy – Jessica Lemmon (Book 2)

Genre : Contemporary romance, New Adult
Rating : ♥♥♥♥♥

Book 1 | Book 2 | Book 3

My review : I should start by saying Arm Candy by Jessica Lemmon is one of the most wonderful story I’ve read in a long time. I just put it down and it’s been a while since I’ve wanted to share my views about a book right away. That says something about how excited I am.

Arm Candy is the first book I read from this author and I’m happy I got to discover her. I’m definitely going to check her other books. The writing in this one was great and I loved how I was hooked from the very beginning, how I couldn’t flip through the pages fast enough. This book was addictive.

♥ The story 

Arm Candy tells the story of Davis, a suit-wearing stock analyst and Gracie, a feisty redhead bartender. Davis is a regular at McGreevy’s, the bar Gracie works in. He sat at his regular seat every evening and they enjoy bantering until he takes home his blonde of the day/week. They’re both attracted to each other and they know it but a past full of pain prevents them from acting on it. Hence, why they banter instead.

From the very start of this book, you can sense the strong connection between Gracie and Davis. Their every interaction is fun, full of sexual tension but also holds a subtle, deeper affection. Everything flows from there. Grace bets him he can’t change his habit of dating only blondes and well, Davis can’t turn down a challenge.

My review : 

Hello everyone ! If you follow me on Instagram, you must have seen that I was lucky to receive an ARC from one of my favorite author : R.S. Grey in exchange for an honest review. I’m really happy and I thank the author and her team again. Even more now that The Foxe and the Hound has officially become my favorite novel from this author. Honestly, R.S. Grey is for me the queen of romantic comedy just like Sophie Kinsella is the queen of Chick-lit.

In general

Have you ever read a book that put a smile on your face and that you enjoy so much you don’t want it to end ? Well, The Foxe and the Hound was it for me. I’ve read Anything you can do by the same author and said that R.S. Grey couldn’t do better as I thought it couldn’t be more perfect than that. But she did it! This book exceeded everything.
