The Belle and the Beard (English Edition) Format Kindle
Jasper-Anne Cleary’s guide to salvaging your life when you find yourself publicly humiliated, out of work, and unemployable at 35—not to mention newly single:
1. Run away. Seriously, there’s no shame in disappearing. Go to that rustic old cottage your aunt left you. Look out for the colony of bats and the leaky roof. Oh, and the barrel-chested neighbor with shoulders like the broad side of a barn. Definitely look out for him.
2. Stop wallowing and stay busy. It doesn’t matter whether you know how to bake or fix things around the house. Do it anyway. Dust off your southern hospitality and feed that burly, bearded neighbor some pecan pie.
3. Meet new people. Chat up the grumpy man-bear, pretend to be his girlfriend when his mother puts you two on the spot, agree to go as his date to a big family party. Don’t worry—it’s only temporary.
4. Cry it out. Screwing up your life entitles you to wine, broody-moody music, and uninterrupted sobbing.
5. Get over it all by getting under someone. Count on your fake boyfriend to deliver some very real action between the sheets.
6. Move on. The disappearing act, the cottage, the faux beau—none of it can last forever.
Linden Santillian’s guide to surviving the invasion when a hell-in-heels campaign strategist moves in next door:1. Do not engage. There is no good reason you should chop her wood, haul her boxes, or pick her apples.
2. Do not accept gifts, especially not the homemade ones. Disconnect the doorbell, toss your phone over a bridge, hide in the basement if you must, but do not eat her pie.
3. Do not introduce her to your friends and family. They’ll favor her over you and never let you forget it.
4. Do not intervene when she’s crying on the back porch. Ignore every desire to fix the entire world for her. By no means should you take her into your arms and memorize her peach-sweet curves.
5. Do not take her to bed, even if it’s just to get her out of your system.
6. Do not, under any circumstances, fall in love with her.
Warning: This opposites attract love story includes a meet-burglary, an immortal cat, a biohazard of a banana bread, a meddling mother, fancy toast, and a temporary fling that starts feeling a little too permanent.
CW: off-page death of an aunt; history of childhood emotional abuse and objectification; brief discussion of a past tragic loss; brief mention of a parent ending their life.

Even though this is fiction and cannot be further from my own life, there was just something about these characters that made me feel familiar. I could find a little bit of me in both of them. Don’t get me wrong, it is a rom-com but also an introspective read to me. The dialogs are grand; they pull you into the story and touch you in the deepest part of your soul. But if you’re looking for a perky new adult comedy, just pass your way; this is a grown-ass relationship.
The characters look like real people, but in the end, there are exceptional fictional people. I usually do not swoon for burly bearded men, but Linden is so much more than that, just like Jasper is not only a beautiful, strong woman.
Ce livre parlerait à ceux qui sont à un carrefour de leur vie. Je recommande.

Jasper-Anne needs to get away after a bit of a disastrous career move she needs to regroup. Then she runs into her new neighbour, while she is trying to break into her house, who just can help offering his assistance which she definitely does not need and doesn't want!
The sparkes fly straight away for these two and their chemistry is undeniable!
I loved the relationship Linden had with his mum who has to be one of my favourite characters ever! I loved catching up with Ash and Magnolia again and seeing what's happening in their world!
Is growly gruff Linden about to meet his match with sweet, but takes no nonsense Jasper-Anne who likes to thank everyone with baked goods!
I LOVED Linden and Jasper-Anne! Loved this series!
Firstly, I enjoyed this book.
Lin is a gruff, lumberjack-like tree surgeon who is bossy, grumpy, over-protective and completely lovely. When he meets his new neighbour, who is there to clear the property after inheriting it after her aunt died, he has Insta-lust.
Jasper is there picking herself up after her life imploded publicly. She’s very attracted to the hot, burly man next door but it’s not convenient timing for anything other than a hot, kinky fling.
Pesky feelings get in the way though.
I loved Jasper. I loved her strength and her will. I loved Lin and his all-in attitude. I loved that he put a hot, a hot uncomfortable spotlight on her unhealthy behaviours and attitudes (like not taking the last coffee so not to be a bother) and basically told her to stop. I loved the side characters and the found family vibe - honestly, this was the perfect blend of heat and heart (the angst was very minimal).
PS - domineering, sexy times against a tree. And a cabinet. In a shower…. Basically everywhere.
A great read - fabulous bi representation with both characters BTW.
This is actually the 3rd book in the Santillian triplets series but I’ve jumped ahead because the hot bearded tree doctor caught my eye first! Slight spoilers for the first two in terms of couples but I think they can easily be read as standalones. Absolutely loved Linden and Jasper-Anne and the constant push and pull between them until their chemistry overrides everything. Steamy and heartfelt.
One of the things I love most about Kate’s books is how effortless they are. I don’t know how to describe it. They’re just these snapshots of life that make me grin like a loon. Pure magic. If you haven’t read Kate’s books, what are you waiting for?
trust and letting people in.
These two really dislike each other but can't seem to stay away either.
Jasper fall from grace, trying to put her life back together she moves in next door to a growly lumberbear(as she calls him), while getting accused of being a burglar with a crow bar their story starts.
Ultimately a dislike to maybe, maybe not love story it has all the feels in tbe right places.
