Beauty and the Bayou, an all-new sexy, small town, opposites attract rom com from New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas, is available now!


The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . . BEAUTY AND THE BAYOU (Boys of the Bayou, #3) . . . The return to the bayou and the boys from the area. We get sexy, moody, broody, scared Sawyer. His big, gruff, and a not at all intimidating to the city-slicker in town to make sure her brother do the right things. Juliet has no qualms about doing what is right. And the right thing to do is to make sure that her brother repairs what was broken and do it right. 

Sawyer was going through a tough time in life. He was not coping with things very well. He bark was the way things were handled. And for most people that usually pushing them away. Then walks in or stumbles in Juliet. The city-slicker with much tude of her own and a need for safety for all and everything having its place and order to do all things. 

Sawyer was just the type of hero I gravitate to. He was broken on the inside by an event in life. He was not really working through the pain of the event but was at the same time still very safety conscious for those around him. Friend or foe or other. 

There was more than just a few people that learned a few lessons on life, love, family, and taking pride in earning ones keep, respect, and friendship. I just cold not help but to fall in love with the family from the bayou and the city folks that came to town. 

Erin Nicholas you rock and thanks for another romance in the bayou.

Sawyer Landry knows he's been beastly to be around for the past few months. But he can't seem to remember how to be fun-loving and friendly. Until he sees Juliet Dawson on his boat dock... and realizes that hip waders are, apparently, one of his turn-ons. But despite the beauty in the boots, the last thing he needs right now is a city girl in his way for the next two weeks.

But he's not really getting a vote. Juliet is determined that her little brother rebuild the dock he and his idiot friends smashed. She's quirky, klutzy, independent...and possibly an even bigger pessimist than Sawyer is. He's incredibly drawn to the cynical fish-out-of-water, who seems to be the one person who isn't intimidated by his growling.

The big, gruff boat captain is the first person in a long time to want to watch out for her and Juliet finds that hotter than his grandma's jambalaya. Well, that and his sexy scar, his emotional baggage, and the sense of humor and fun that is buried deep.

But Sawyer doesn't need any more people to worry about long-term and the things that make him feel protective of Juliet aren't going to go away. So, this two-week adventure can't be anything more than a fling. With Juliet down on the bayou, there's an even bigger threat than alligators and hurricanes. There's the very good chance of someone ending up with a broken heart.

“I guess when we need relief from the heat, we go, you know, into the actual shade.” He looked amused. “Among other things.” “Other things?” It wasn’t so much that she needed to know other ways to keep cool. But she really liked the way he looked when he was mildly amused. It was a very good look on him. “Lots of water and sweet tea,” he said. She gave an involuntary shudder. His amused smile grew. “No to sweet tea?” “Not my favorite,” she admitted. “But don’t tell Ellie,” she added quickly. He chuckled at that. “I would never.” Yeah, the chuckling was nice, too. “I’ve got the water covered though,” she said. “Good.” “Anything else?” “Well, when we get hot there area couple of other things we do,” he said. Had he moved closer? Juliet swallowed. “Like what?” “We take clothes off,” he said. Yeah, his voice was definitely deeper now. “I gue—” She cleared her throat. “I guess that makes sense, but there are bugs and sunburn to consider.” He gave her a nod. “Sunscreen and bug repellent are important. Cora makes bug repellent that’s amazing.” Huh. Homemade bug repellent. She might have to give that a try. These people intrigued her, she had to admit. “What about the flying debris?” Sawyer glanced at the boards behind her. “Yeah, well, I guess we do take some risks down here.” Ah, ha. “I’d rather be a little hot than dealing with an infection from a piece of wood imbedding itself in my skin and muscle tissue.” Sawyer paused, then shook his head, almost disbelievingly. “Okay, girl. Then that only leaves one other thing to do when you get too hot.” “What’s that?” “Swimming.” For a moment, looking into Sawyer Landry’s eyes, for the first time since she’d been ten years old, Juliet wanted to take her clothes off and jump into a body of water. That lasted about twelve seconds. But that was twelve seconds longer than she’d considered doing it to that point. “I don’t have a swimming suit.” “You don’t need one. The fewer clothes the cooler you get.” “Skinny-dipping?” she asked. “Skinny-dipping,” he confirmed. “You actually skinny-dip?” she asked. “Of course.” Sawyer Landry naked. She just took a few seconds to relish that thought…and the images that went with it. Skinny-dipping with Sawyer might be the one way she would ever even possibly consider any of that. “Do you have a private pool with lots of chlorine and a maximum depth of three feet?” she asked. She wondered if being naked but with a life jacket on still counted as skinny-dipping. “Don’t need a pool when I’ve got a whole bayou in my backyard.” She shuddered. “There is no way I’m jumping in there. Clothes or not.” “So, the naked part of skinny-dipping isn’t the problem?” Sawyer asked. “It’s the water?” “It’s absolutely the water,” she said. It was actually all water, but water where she could see the bottom, touchthe bottom, and that was pumped through a filtration system was tolerable. Maybe. For a short period. With plenty of floatation devices within reach. “I mean, other than just the dirt, there are snakes and alligators and fish…and fish and alligator poopin there.” She frowned. “Do snakes poop? I mean, they probably do, right?” Sawyer blinked at her. “I’ve never really thought about it.” She nodded. “They almost have to. And they probably do it in that water, too.” She shuddered again. “No, thank you. There are just places I do notneed dirty bayou water.” “It’s the poop that’s keeping you from skinny-dippin’?” Sawyer asked, clearly trying not to laugh. “You are really thinking about the wrong thing when it comes to bein’ wet and naked, darlin’.”
