Proper Boston Brahmin Juliet Rose Astor Lowell doesn't want her body guarded by anyone while she's in New Orleans for the grand opening of Daddy's new hotel—especially not by macho cop Beau Dupree. He's too big, too pushy, too virile, too . . . everything! His shameless, hungry-eyed gaze shakes her carefully cultivated decorum. But Juliet is a Lowell—and there's no way she's ever going to lose control!

Beau has more important things to do than babysit a beautiful Yankee rich girl. By driving the well-mannered socialite beyond the bounds of her good-girl restraints, he figures he can get himself pulled off of the assignment. But who would have thought that real passion sizzled beneath Juliet's polish—or that when she lets her hair down, she just might prove to be more woman than Beau can handle?

BMB was set in New Orleans which was rather hard to read without thinking of Katrina. Hero is a policeman who has spent the last 10 years raising his three orphaned sisters and heroine is an uptight Boston blue blood whose family owns a chain of hotels. Scenario involves another heroine in danger - hero must protect her which is getting old. But it was fast, light, humorous, and hot. So it worked for me. (Grade: B-)

I'm starting to get a feel for this author's style and I've got to say I really like it - the way she writes, the way her characters talk, interact, fight, make up, and fall in love. In light of this issue of style, I think it's entirely a matter of preference whether these books are enjoyed or not. Some elements might be clichéd or stereotypical, but Andersen manages to make it so charming/endearing that I can't seem to get enough of her books. Be My Baby is a fun romance whose tone is a bit more in keeping with Baby, I'm Yours (which still has it beat though.) We've got two characters, Juliette and Beau, who seem like complete opposites and who immediately rub each other the wrong way. Juliette is an upper crust Bostonian who's come to New Orleans to open a new hotel. Beau is a cop who's a big tough guy - but he's raised his three younger sisters since the death of their parents, so he's human and accessible in this respect. We've got a plot involving a mystery (the "Panty Snatcher" has been terrorizing women and doing what his nickname says he does.) Added to this is the possibility that someone might be threatening Juliette's life in protest of the opening of her hotel, and we've got a wonderful excuse to throw these two polar opposites together and watch the sparks fly. Beau is assigned as Juliette’s body guard, and neither of them are happy about it. Beau and Juliette's relationship developed nicely, and they had a lot of chemistry, which I always appreciate. But the book really earned its stars for how Juliette grows up and comes into her own - especially when it comes to dealing with Beau's cold feet later on. Her responses to him at this crucial juncture in the book are brilliant, and I was so pleased to be able to root for a woman with some spine. Beau, for his part, sees the light so nicely. Another aspect of the book I loved was the bad guy - a prim old socialite lady who is completely nuts. She's awesome. The havoc she wrecks isn't part of some super crime plot with thrilling mystery and chilling danger. Instead it's fun/funny, and adds just enough spice to the hero and heroine's relations. In short, another enjoyable read from Susan Andersen.
