Burn For You (Boys of the South #5)
by Marquita Valentine.
Audience/Genre: New Adult,Contemporary Romance .
Publication: April 21st 2014.
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 at all, because he’s determined to give up everything to be a standup dad, including racing, partying, and his very favorite vice, women. Until that is, he’s invited to race at 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 travelling 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 NASCAR Racing Royalty. Landry’s parents are big fans of the Montgomerys, while she couldn’t care less—all she wants to do is make a dent in her student loan bill. 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. In fact , she doesn’t resist at all.

Lines are crossed and then forgotten as Beau and Landry grow closer, but when Beau’s ex-girlfriend, the woman he’s loved since high school, and 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?

** Burn For You can be read as a stand-alone**

Reviewed by Kelly.

I really thought that Beau and Landry are both very loyal and kind people. Landry has always done the right thing; she has wonderful parents and struggles like the rest of us with one thing or another in life. Right now, she is over her head in school debts and needs a good job. That job just ends up being the nanny for Beau Montgomery, a NASCAR driver. Sparks fly the moment the two meet. But Landry feels like it would be crossing the line to have a relationship with someone she works with.

Beau feels the same. Too bad neither can do it! Beau has a child, Mia, who came from a relationship he had with Paisley, who Beau was faithful to, but Paisley wasn’t someone who could be tamed or tied down. Beau finds out the daughter she had may or may not be his. But Beau falls in love instantly with Mia and doesn’t care if it is his or not. To Beau; he is the father. He is utterly in love with that baby girl and does right by her. He is a good father. He is also not like the person that the press makes him out to be.

Beau was raised by his mother until she committed suicide. Beau was then taken to live with his father and step mother. His step mother was kind and Beau was nice to her as well since Beau’s dad was married to her when Beau’s mother got pregnant. Beau’s dad was another famous Driver and a womanizer. Sounds like a soap opera huh?!!

Eventually Landry and Beau get together and have some hurdles to overcome.

What I liked: I loved how Beau was a good dad and kept his ex in Mia’s life. I loved how kind and sweet, Landrey was. I enjoyed watching people grow and right mistakes made. I also liked that Beau and Landry promised that they would never lie to each other and didn't. They did have the best makings of a great forever relationship.

What I didn’t like: Beau and Landry’s bedroom scenes border on raunchy to me with the talking. They just don’t seem that way to me. I had to skip over it. And there were some medical errors too. Since I am in the medical field, I can ignore a lot of things and some I just can't.
