My Review:

Loved this book. Definitely a good read for me. I originally read it as The Office, and was super happy to re-read it now. Lots of great improvments. Love it! This book is a nice quick read and is great from cover to cover. It doesn't leave you wanting in any aspect. Great Characters? Got them. Hot story line? Got it. All around great quick read. Though the first book in a series its a Stand alone. The second book comes out next month! So Bennet. Oh gosh does he live up to the BB name. He is a legit A** to Chloe, and well everyone. But you really can't help but fall for him. Gorgeous mean man he is. Though he was an ass, he was also sweet, well in his own way. Chloe, I loved Chloe. Her attitude, her clothing choice, her crazy whole self! She was great. I loved how she threw back with Bennet and didn't take shit. Well she didn't take it mostly, then she did, and THAT was great lol. They have some HOT moments for sure. It has some Fantastic sex scenes. Fantastic. lol Even if you read it for just that. Read it. The writing may not be the greatest, and some of the conversations in the book are Ehhh but the story is great. Bennet does have some creeper tactics but overall I just like him :D The Dirty talk alone got this book an extra star lol. It was great. That being said I did Love the story, but its one that didn't stick with me after I read it. No real Hangover. Sometimes you need these types of books and I needed it when reading this book. It didn't let down. Overall good book :D


Whip-smart, hardworking, and on her way to an MBA, Chloe Mills has only one problem: her boss, Bennett Ryan. He's exacting, blunt, inconsiderate—and completely irresistible. A Beautiful Bastard. Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family's massive media business. He never expected that the assistant who'd been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative—completely infuriating—creature he now has to see every day. Despite the rumors, he's never been one for a workplace hookup. But Chloe's so tempting he's willing to bend the rules—or outright smash them—if it means he can have her. All over the office. As their appetites for one another increase to a breaking point, Bennett and Chloe must decide exactly what they're willing to lose in order to win each other. Originally only available online as The Office by tby789—and garnering over two million reads on fan fiction sites—Beautiful Bastard has been extensively updated for re-release. Beautiful Stranger (Beautiful Bastard, #2) Synopsis: A charming British Playboy. A girl determined to finally live. And a secret liaison revealed in all too vivid color. Book two in the NYT Bestselling series. Escaping a cheating ex, finance whiz Sara Dillon's moved to New York City and is looking for excitement without a lot of strings attached. So meeting the irresistible, sexy Brit at a dance club should have meant nothing more than a night's fun. But the manner--and speed--with which he melts her inhibitions turns him from a one-time hookup and into her Beautiful Stranger. The whole city knows Max Stella loves women, not that he's ever found one he particularly wants to keep around. Despite pulling in plenty with his Wall Street bad boy charm, it's not until Sara--and the wild photos she lets him take of her--that he starts wondering if there's someone for him outside of the bedroom. Hooking up in places where anybody could catch them, the only thing scarier for Sara than getting caught in public is having Max get too close in private.
