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 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. 


  • Best one yet!

Can sweet Juliet get through Sawyer’s gruff exterior, and help him back to his old self? You will get those answers and then some in Beauty and the Bayou. You will want to read this one straight through.
  • Love Sawyer

    By Juli Hall
    I’ve been waiting to read Sawyer’s book and was not disappointed. Juliet is quirky, sweet and perfect for Sawyer. They both have fears and with each other’s help and love they can overcome them together. Love the Landry clan, they all help each other and even strangers. Looking forward to reading Kennedy’s book.
  • More fun on the bayou!

    OMG I loved being back on the Bayou for more fun, crazy antics, family, laughs and lovin’ Cajun style!! Erin Nicholas truly knows how to write a romance that will have you laughing one minute and fanning yourself the next with all the other emotions tossed in there for good measure. She writes lovable quirky characters that will definitely own your heart. Sawyer & Juliet are absolutely perfect for each other and they have such spicy hot chemistry too!! Their banter is so much fun and I loved watching them fall for each other more and more each day and support each other. This is such a great series that is so much fun to read. The Landry boys have all been totally swoon-worthy, but I definitely have a soft spot for Sawyer and what he’s been going through. All of these characters are so wonderful and really make me want to be a part of their fun loving family. I loved getting to see two of my favorite child characters, Stella and Cooper again! Fantastic epilogue! Can’t wait for Kennedy & Bennett’s book!!
  • Not to Miss!

    By kmmichels
    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 first time! I went to sleep after finishing with a tear in my eye and a big smile on my face! I'm anxiously awaiting Kennedy's story...
  • An amazing must read!!

  • Fabulous fun on the Bayou with the Landry's!

    By mj_toth
    Fabulous. Sawyer and Juliet captivated me. The Landry clan are experts at interfering in each other’s lives. When they met Juliet, they knew she would be the perfect match for super-cautious Sawyer. Juliet is an incredible woman, successful lawyer that lives with a right-side weakness from her childhood. Because of this, she is a master planner, anticipating any and all contingencies before she dives into something new. She doesn’t have spontaneity in her life, but she knows she can traverse whatever she chooses because of her plans. She has become a master playing the “what-if” and “yes-but” games and never expects to meet a man that understands her need to evaluate all these issues. Sawyer lost himself after Tommy’s death. His love of the bayou, while still there, is tarnished with fear for those he loves and trying to keep them safe. When he meets Juliet, he is blown away and immediately adores her life vest and safety goggles … a woman after his own heart. As these two rebuild the dock that Juliet’s brother damaged, will they find a way to moderate their fears and embrace love? Or will their fears force them apart? Another incredible romance involving the entire Landry clan. I love how they embraced Juliet and Chase, they have big hearts and great spirits. I would love to hang out at Ellie’s and enjoy her chicken fried steak!
  • The Bayou is Hot!

    By KellyMcClure
    Another wild trip to the Bayou and Erin Nicholas knocks it out of the park! Sawyer Landry has been hurt, physically and emotionally, and is not sure how to recover. There are some things he just can’t control and that isn’t ok with him. Juliet Dawson learned early in life that she can control things with enough preparation. If not, she can avoid them. Sawyer Landry was not something she was prepared for. All the time in the world couldn’t prepare her for him or his crazy, Cajun family. This is part of the Boys of the Bayou series and gives us some followup with other characters in earlier stories. You can read it as a stand alone but the humor and intensity of the earlier stories truly enhance this book. Can’t wait for Bennett and Kennedy’s story!!!
  • Fantastic!

    By hnobbs
    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, was able to redeem himself from the jerk he was when we first met him and that he actually was likable. You could tell he cared for his sister and for his new Bayou family. For as excited as I was for Sawyer’s book, which I absolutely loved, I can tell my kindle will be smoking when I finally read Kennedy and Bennett’s book. I like that we were able to see Tori, Josh, Maddie, Owen, Kennedy and the rest of the Landry clan. They are just a crazy, wonderful family and I love them and their antics.
  • Love those Bayou boys!

    By Cheryl33610
    Best. Meet. Cute. Ever!! Sawyer and Juliet's story grabbed me from not just page one, but from the first sentence! I was anxiously awaiting Sawyer's story, to see what kind of heroine Nicholas would pair him with. This strong but wounded man needed a match who could handle his over protectiveness but help to lighten his mood and open his heart. Juliet was just that woman, but she was definitely not without her own issues! While she was on the lookout for danger everywhere, she differed from Sawyer in that she planned for it, but didn't let it stop her from embracing and living her life! She was the piece that was missing from Sawyer after the loss of his best friend. Juliet brought laughter to his life, which I think was the very best part of their relationship! And laughter is my favorite part of every Erin Nicholas book. Many authors, including Nicholas, excel at writing physical and emotional chemistry between their hero and heroine. But she is one of the few who tickle my funny bone consistently, as well as make me swoon and cry. Add in all those crazy Cajun relatives and you’ve got yourself a spicy bowl of jambalaya that propels the Boys of the Bayou series to the top of my favorite series of all time! Grab this one, my friends, and prepare to be thoroughly charmed and entertained!
  • It’s always a good time on the Bayou!

    By Cheryl SDS
    This sexy and highly entertaining story is book 3 in the Boys of the Bayou series and it features Sawyer and Juliet. Their chemistry all but smacks you in the face as soon as they meet! It was so great! Her brother damaged the dock belonging to Boys of the Bayou Swamp Boat and Fishing Tours and she’s there to help him rebuild it. If there was ever a woman more perfect for Sawyer, she’s it! She’s like him but maybe a bit worse. They call it the “What-If” game and the “Yeah, But” game and these two are both expert players. This is probably my favorite book in this series. I laughed and smiled so many times. The story line was great and the characters, as always, are fan-freakin-tastic! I ALWAYS look forward to books by this author cause I am forever guaranteed a fun, sexy and romantic read with characters I’d love to be friends with in real life.
