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, 10 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.

squeeeee JOE ARDEN
Joe Arden is fast becoming one of my favorite narrators! And this is the second book he's done with R.S. Grey, so I knew I needed to get it right away. Perfect pairing. Luci Christian's narration is good too, especially in this book where she had to be "highschool age" for the first bit and then an adult later on. She has good comedic timing as well!
The story itself was exactly what I expect from an R.S. Grey book: funny, sweet, sexy, and did I mention funny? She seriously always has be lol-ing. This is why I particularly like listening to her audios; because I walk around like a grinning lunatic, bursting into random laughter around silent strangers. It's perfect.
Beau and Lauren's love felt so real! I can really relate to being an awkward AF teenager with an inappropriate crush on an older guy. I liked that she didn't go taboo and cross any lines there; the time jump allowed both characters to mature and change a bit, too. A much as I identified with Lauren, I just friggin LOVED Beau. Like, for real, does this man exist somewhere out in the wild? Because I would like to find him. Next book-boyfriend for sure.

Could have been great...
I feel like I was waiting the whole story for it to get good... there was no back and forth in the present day, no conflict or anything.
It had the makings to be a good romance, but I think it missed the mark.
