Boys of the South, #5. Burn For You can be read as a standalone.

Beau Montgomery is *not* the typical single dad for three reasons:

1. He's rich and famous.
2. He needs a nanny, like yesterday.
3. He has no idea if eight month old, Mia, is actually his daughter.

Only, number three doesn't matter to him, because he's determined to give up everything to be a standup dad, including racing, partying, and his favorite vice-women. Until that is, he's invited to race in Monaco--a dream he's always had. Now, all those things he'd sworn to give up are at his fingertips, including the very inconveniently hot nanny, Landry Basnight, who's traveling with him.

Landry Basnight *is* the typical college graduate for three reasons:

1. She's broke and in debt up to her eyeballs.
2. She needs a job, like yesterday.
3. Nothing exciting ever happens in her life.

Only, number three is about to change, because she's been hired by Beau Montgomery, son of Racing Royalty. Landry's parents are big fans of the Montgomerys, while she couldn't care less--all she wants is to make a dent in her student loans. However, that doesn't stop her from falling in love with her little charge, nor does it make it easier to resist Beau's charms.

Lines are crossed, and then forgotten as Beau and Landry grow closer, but when Beau's ex-girlfriend, who is also Mia's mother, shows up, everything starts to fall apart for the new couple.

Will their love weather the storm, or will Beau abandon Landry for the family he's always wanted?

Marquita did it again! This is my favorite book of the series so far! I fell in love with Beau and just couldn't put him down. I HIGHLY recommend making Beau your next book boyfriend!

A little sophomoric. I'm having a hard time staying interested. I think it could have been about 50 pages shorter. I may set it aside and come back to it; hopefully it will gain some momentum further in. Although I think the maturity level is a lost cause.

This is a wonderful story about Beau Montgomery, a well-known race car driver. He was an illegitimate child raised by his addict mother until his mother took her life when he was a teen. He then went to live with his biological father and his family. When he met Paisley, he knew it was love. They were together for years when she had a child. By this time, Beau had a successful career in racing. He'd always wanted a family and was thrilled with the baby, Mia. He didn't know or care if the baby was his or not. With a big race coming up in Monaco, Beau needed a nanny quickly. Landry applied for the job, she was perfect so he hired her. The book is a great read and definitely captures the reader in the storyline, but that wouldn't work if she didn't have good characters. Beau was a good man who cherished his daughter. He was determined she would never have the kind of childhood he did so she was his top priority and the love of his life. Landry was the opposite of Beau, coming from a good home with two parents. She was a bit on the shy side, not experienced with men. Beau and Landry had a sweet romance, bringing out the best in each other. Even though this book is part of a series, I hadn't read the other books but didn't have any trouble following this story. I would like to know about the other boys though so I'll be reading more in this series.

I’ve been waiting for Beau’s story since the boys’ first poker game, so I was excited to see his book was finally out! Beau has always worn his rebellious reputation with pride, whether it was earned or simply speculation. His bright smile and fast cars added to the illusion of a carefree man in his prime. Until he learns he’s fathered a baby… maybe. In comes Landry, Beau’s definition of sin and salvation in one sweet package. He can’t decide if he wants to run toward her and risk his broken heart or chase her away. Complicating everything further is Mia’s mother, Paisley, who is about two shakes from being the devil incarnate. She puts everyone through hell—most of all, herself. Burn For You is a sexy and heartwarming story you don’t want to miss.

I just adore The Boys of the South Series by Marquita Valentine and I have really been excited about reading Beau Montgomery's story.  He has been a secondary character in the previous novels, but he's always had this mysterious hotness and sex appeal about him that has intrigued me and made me want to get to know him better, and in Burn For You, that is exactly what you get to do.   Beau Montgomery is a very wealthy and famous race car driver who has always had the "playboy" reputation.  All that begins to change when the woman who he thought was the love of his life...and the woman who has broken his heart time and time again, drops the little lady who steals his heart pretty much in his lap.  Beau doesn't know if Mia is his daughter or not, but he loves her just the same and would do anything, and I mean anything for her, and he does.  As a matter of fact, he proves to be one of the most amazing dad's you've ever seen.  When he is presented with an opportunity that has been a dream of his and is too good to turn down, he needs a Nanny and he needs her now.  Landry Basnight is up to her eyeballs in student debt.  The job that she had in school was, let's just say, not something she wanted to continue to do, especially after she met Beau Montgomery there.  She has no idea when she applies for the Nanny position that it would be for Beau Montgomery, and he certainly has no idea when he opens the door for her interview appointment that he would find Landry on the other side.  Neither feel that the job would be a good idea or work for them, but fate, with a little help from someone that will surprise you, has a different plan. Beau, Landry, and Mia wind up in Monaco for Beau's race.  Landry is wonderful with Mia, thoroughly impressing both Beau, his family, and Mia's not so stable mother AKA Beau's ex.  The chemistry between Beau and Landry is undeniable and trying to keep things strictly business proves futile.  Landry is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet.  She is also very mature, yet very innocent and trusting.  Beau is all kind of sexy, complete with the hot dirty talk, and surprisingly, not the player he seems to be after all.  Beau also has his secrets from his past that eat at him, and then there is Mia's mom.  Landry is crazy about Beau, but she also isn't sure she fits into his world, and there are a few hurtful situations that occur during the process, but my boy Beau handles things really well, which was very impressive.   The romance was hot, steamy, and has you rooting for the characters.  The story itself is fun, heart-warming, definitely sexy, and it also has it's sad moments.  The ending surprised me, but in a good way.  Marquita Valentine in her trademark style, has yet again provided her readers with a wonderful and captivating contemporary romance.  If you are a fan of this genre, Burn For You is something I most definitely  recommend checking out.  It is part of a series, but can also be read as a standalone.

Such a tender story. It made me groan, smile and even shed a tear. Beau Montgomery and Landry Basnight are beautiful together.

An amazing addition to the Boys of the South series. A fantastic story with sizzling attraction between the characters and obstacles that tug at your heart. Bad boy Beau is a single father in need of a nanny. Good girl Landry just graduated college and needs a job. Can they fight the attraction that sparks between them? I highly recommend you read this one!

Marquita Valentine’s Boys of the South is one of my favorite new adult romance series. I may be a northern girl (sorry, my part of Virginia is NOT the south), but even I can’t deny that boys are hotter in the south. The girls are also sassier. It’s a win-win. I thoroughly enjoy getting lost in these novels with their complicated and likable characters and the stories that are always just a little more than just a romance. I loved Rae and Cole. Bliss and Jackson stole my heart with their opposites-attract story. Wyatt and Lacey’s journey exhausted me in the best way possible. But all that is nothing compared to Beau and Landry. Marquita took the story to another level entirely with this book and to say I was emotionally invested in these characters would be a gross understatement.  Landry was a great heroine. I found her easy to connect with and more than likable. She was sweet as could be, but she also had a backbone. She was determined and strong. As much as I liked Landry, my feelings for Beau were what really drove my enjoyment of this book. He could have easily been a cliched bad boy, but he was so, so much more. I have a new favorite book boyfriend, y’all, and it will take awhile for someone to unseat him, I do believe. Beau was incredible. This book felt like his story more than Landry’s, honestly, but that may be just because we were treated to his backstory at the beginning of the book. After his mother’s suicide, Beau was more or less alone in the world. He was the illegitimate child of a man with whom he didn’t have a good relationship. He met Paisley in high school and they had a very unhealthy relationship. He loved her, she pretty much treated him like crap and he took it. Paisley gets pregnant and Beau falls in love with the baby, Mia, immediately. The only problem is, she may or may not be his. That doesn’t matter to him, regardless of how Paisley likes to throw it in his face. Beau may be a tattooed and pierced race car driver, but the guy underneath is as sweet as iced tea in the south. He loves deeply and is very protective of those he cares about.  Landry and Beau have an interesting first meeting – one laced with an almost instant attraction – but it’s not until he interviews her to be Mia’s nanny that things begin to get interesting. She wants the job and him, he wants her but understands nothing can happen between them because she’s the nanny, and offers the job to someone else. Fate (or something, cough) intervenes and after his first choice is deemed unfit to watch his child, he hires Landry and the real fun begins. The chemistry these two have is undeniable. They try to fight it, but I’m sure we all know how that turns out.  For a guy who is as sweet as can be, let me tell you, Beau gives good dirty talk. My god. His words left me fanning myself and being very, very envious of Landry. These two were downright combustible together. They truly cared for each other, too. Their road wasn’t easy, but even the most complicated things have a way of working out for the best.  Burn for You was a wild ride. The characters were wonderful and so easy to connect with. Their struggles were believable and I wanted to see them all find happiness in the end. The romance was sweet, the love scenes HOT. Beau’s relationship with Mia was sweet and just endeared him even more to me. It takes a real man to be a daddy, especially when he’s not even sure the child is his. Beau was a real man… and an incredible one at that. He and Landry were fantastic together. The story was unexpectedly deep in places, especially with regards to the relationship with his ex, Paisley. There were some unexpected twists and turns that kept me on my toes. I absolutely devoured this book in one sitting, with no regrets. Though Burn for You is part of a series, it’s a standalone novel with no cliffhanger. You wouldn’t necessarily need to read the other books in the series to enjoy it, but you totally should anyhow because you need some Cole and Rae, Jackson and Bliss, and Wyatt and Lacey in your life. Trust me. While this may be the end of Beau and Landry’s story, I hope this series continues. It just keeps getting better and better and I can’t wait to see what happens next.  I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
