A sexy small town, beauty and the beast rom com!

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

I am just going to start by saying this series has been one of the most fun reads I have had in a very long time. PERIOD. Each entry has been a huge winner and consistent in the way it has brought all the characters together and maintained the true core of what the Bayou Boys brothers with a sister who are part of an extended family of people you would love to know and share time with. On the surface, it would be very easy to

I finished Beauty and the Bayou at 12:16 am this morning and it's off to my editor!

I've loved spending these last couple of months with Sawyer and Juliet and I can't wait for you to read their story!

Here's a little, never-before-seen (unedited ;) ) peek just for you guys!

For the past day and a half I’ve been stalking my Kindle and synching it every five minutes to see if this book had downloaded, and when it finally did, the rest of my world ground to a halt so I could dig into this one. I’ve been dying to read Sawyer's story and knew it would be epic!

Since the beginning of this series, the Landry clan has owned my heart. But viewing them from Juliet and Chase Dawson's point of view, I fell in love with them all over again. Juliet and her brother Chase are abou

This book was AMAZING!!! Sawyer and Juliet were such a sexy, different couple to read about! I’m not going to go in to too much detail because I don’t want to give anything away, but people, you WANT this book. Juliet and Sawyer are favorite Erin Nicholas couple yet! And, the sparks that fly between two secondary characters??? 🔥 🔥 🔥 I definitely recommend one clicking this book!

This book is just another reason why I will never miss an Erin Nicholas romance! Sawyer's reaction to Juliet's arrival, both of their interactions with each other and the secondary characters, their undeniable chemistry, their need to help each other, their obvious love for their families. There isn't one thing about this book that I didn't love. There's nothing I would change. Well, the only thing I would change would be the ability to start at the beginning and read this amazing story for the ...more

== ** == ** == The bayou is beautiful indeed! == ** == ** ==

Sawyer's a man's man--big, capable, unafraid, he's definitely an example of the guys Juliet wants her brother to have as a role model. He's known for being fun, flirty, almost bigger than life. He's also broken. Devastated when he lost his best friend in a freak accident last year, he's not been the same since. He's become Mr Gloom and Doom, Mr Triple-Check-Your-Seatbelt, Mr Park-Your-Butt-on-the-Seat-at-ALL-Times... His family and frie

I love the Boys of the Bayou series, and each book gets better and better. The culture is so unique and the characters in this story are spot on with the hunky Landry boys and the wonderful small town family and friends. They are just a crazy, wonderful family and I adore them and their antics!

I was so looking forward to reading Sawyer’s book and I definitely was not disappointed! From the moment Sawyer and Juliet met, it was evident they were what the other needed and wanted. Their banter is hi

Safety Never Looked Better.

Wow! I have been a fan of Erin Nicholas forever. I just love the way she writes. She creates these amazing world's that make you want to be a part of them and never leave. I love the characters she creates. Some of her characters will forever stay in my heart.

In Beauty and the Bayou we finally get Sawyer Landry's story. Sawyer is a hot mess. Suffering from the loss of his best friend he is bound and determined to protect everyone and keep them safe. Sawyer is wound ti

Why can't I give more than 5 stars?? I have been looking forward to Sawyer's book for quite a while and he was everything I hoped he would be!

I love a gruff, grumpy hero with a huge heart and that's exactly was Sawyer is. Juliet is his perfect match: smart, brave, beautiful and slightly...klutzy. Their banter is hilarious, their chemistry is explosive. From Sawyer and Juliet's very first meeting until the very last page I had a huge smile on my face.

I absolutely adore this series!! The Landry f

This book hit every base for me. It starts off so very funny when Sawyer discovers Juliet out on the dock. Then it gets serious because Sawyer is still grieving the loss of his best friend and Juliet has a medically complicated backstory. Then it gets steamy because the chemistry between Juliet and Sawyer is off the charts. And then it gets cute when Stella and Cooper (children that Sawyer knows) come to visit, but then things get a little scary. It all wraps up in a lovely ending and some hints ...more

Poor little rich kids. They “borrow” an airboat and crash it into a dock. Then one’s older sister insists that she and her brother will rebuild the dock to teach him a lesson. That is the premise for this installment in the Boys of the Bayou series. I love that Juliet wanted her brother to provide restitution, but his character remains questionable since he left her to do most of the work. Juliet, with her over-preparedness and safety issues, is amusing. And Juliet and Sawyer complement each oth ...more

Sawyer and Juliet are my favorite Erin Nicholas' couple. After watching them together, it's hard for me to imagine anyone not leaving Beauty and the Bayou with a smile. She's the Beauty to his beast and boy do they set off sparks. Tragedy has made him a loner with a penchant for grouchiness. Juliet may be a tad naive, but she's no pushover. Her heart makes her fearless, although a tad clueless. They shouldn't work, but my heart kept hoping they would. Nicholas continues to enchant with her irres ...more

I was soo glad to see Sawyer her his happily ever after after everything he went through with the past 9 months. Juliet is everything he needs to get back to the “old Sawyer”. Juliet’s over compensation for her stroke at at young age makes Sawyers over protective nature, especially since he lost Tommy, stop and take notice. You would think that two over protective and cautious people would be over cautious together but Sawyer seems to notice how over the top he was and how he treated everyone. W ...more

I love Erin Nicholas' books. Anything she writes is an automatic read for me. I've been anxiously awaiting Beauty and the Bayou. It did not disappoint.

Sawyer is a protector. He has always been the one who watched over everything and everyone. Until one day when he gets a phone call from his best friend. He can't get to him in time to save him and in his efforts, he suffers a disfiguring injury. In his grief, he becomes extremely safety conscious and over protective of everyone. Gone is the fun l

5 star review Beauty & The Bayou (Boys Of The Bayou #3) by Erin Nicholas
I love the crazy, whacky Landry family and Erin Nicholas brings Autre, Louisiana to life for me. I would love to be a part of this family and their group of friends.
This is the third book in the series and can certainly be read as a stand alone, however, do yourselves a favour and one click the first two books as well. This is one of my favourite series of 2019.
Juliet Dawson is such a great heroine, I just loved her;

Oh my these Landry men have been so much fun! It's finally time for Sawyer to get his story and was it a great one. If you have read books 1 and 2 you know that Sawyer has been having a rough time of things for the past 9 months. Juliet is an attorney from Virginia that is working alongside her brother Chase in doing repairs to the Landry's dock that Chase and his friends destroyed in a drunken swamp boat adventure. Juliet believes that Chase will learn more by working off his debt than simply w ...more

Another fabulous book by Erin Nicholas. Just when you think you read a fantastic book the next one seems to top it. I was so excited to read Sawyer’s book and I definitely was not disappointed! From the moment Sawyer met Juliet you just knew they were what the other one needed. They both had issues that made them each overthinking, over protective yet with each other they helped to calm each other and make them realize that together they can handle anything.
I liked that Chase, Juliet’s brother,

You know it’s going to be a good book when it starts out, Nailed. Pounded. Drilled. This book was great. I loved Juliet from the get go and Sawyer has finally met his match from a safety standpoint. She was perfect for him from her life jacket, safety goggles, first aid kit right down to her steel toed boots. Seriously though, these two have the safety aspect covered. I really loved how the family took her and Chase in and made them ‘honorary’ Landry’s. Of course it was great to see our friends ...more

I am in love with the whole Landry family!! This time we get to focus on Sawyer, who is struggling to gain his balance after losing his best friend and partner Tommy in their beloved bayou. Sawyer can't seem to have any fun because he's so focused on keeping everyone safe. Sawyer's life is disrupted by Juliet and Chase who have returned to rebuild the deck that Chase destroyed. Juliet is a safety first kind of girl and her favorite past time is playing the what if game. Can you say match made in ...more

If you don’t want to take a trip to the Bayou after reading this book, then we can’t be friends. I started to fall in love with Sawyer and his family in previous books in this series. Erin Nicholas allowed Sawyer to open himself up and show his vulnerability to not only Juliet, but to the readers as well. Sawyer showed that a strong, “Bayou Boy” can have a sensitive side in caring for family and friends. I loved how Juliet helped Sawyer to see that he can help others and not be a grump about it! ...more

NO SPOLIERS no book specifics told...I absolutely love the Boys of Bayou series and getting to know all them a little each more with every book that Erin comes out with. This one was focusing on Sawyer and Juliet. Sawyer has been through some very tough times in recent months and his personality was changed drastically by those events. Juliet had something happen in her childhood that molded her into the non risk taker that she is today. So can these two change each to be able to figure out that ...more

I found this book absolutely delightful!! I thought that there was a very special feeling to Sawyer and Juliet's romance. Originally, the idiosyncrasies that these two have would seem to clash and really be too much for one relationship to contain but instead they helped to create a beautiful and unique couple. Sawyer is a hero that will make you swoon and not just because he is handsome and has that southern charm. He made me think of Batman. Tragedy has entered his life and death has stolen fr ...more

Another fantastic installment of the Boys of the Bayou series. Seriously, Erin Nicholas continues to impress me.

This most recent release in the series is a play on Beauty and the Beast. Sawyer and Juliet really feel like two halves of a whole; their connection was instant and explosive. Sweet romance and hot sex; how can you go wrong?

Again, Erin Nicholas’s characters are what makes her writing so phenomenal. They are sincere, funny, quirky, inviting – they nearly come off the page into life! I

After loosing Tommy to a rare accident in the place they loved and grew up, and suffering a permanent scar himself of the incident, Sawyer became a little obsessed with safety.

Beauty and the Bayou is the third book in Nicholas’s Boys of the Bayou series. At last, Sawyer gets his story! I admit, I’ve been dying for Sawyer’s story since well, since I knew about Sawyer and Tommy, really. Because I love me a broken man and seeing him come alive again for the woman he loves.

This book delivered all of that and more! Sawyer just made my heart ache and grow. The devastating loss of his best friend and busines

“I’m a little dirty,” he said huskily, running his hand up and down the outside of one of her thighs. “I washed up but should have showered. Didn’t expect this.”

“You probably should have expected this.” Her voice sounded a little breathless.

“Yeah,” he agreed, his eyes darkening. “I probably should have.”

“It’s okay,” she told him. “I’m washable.” Images of showers and soap bubbles tripped through her mind and she hoped through his as well.

He gave her a little grin. “Good to know. Means I can get you really dirty.”

Juliet felt her breathing quicken. She put her hand against his face, over his scar. “I really want that.”

Sawyer slid a hand up her back and into her hair. He urged her closer until her lips were nearly against his. “Me, too.”
