Beautiful Bastard
Beautiful Bastard | Christina Lauren
An ambitious intern. A perfectionist executive. And a whole lot of name calling. 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 2 million reads on fanfiction sites—Beautiful Bastard has been extensively updated for re-release.

Some books with #beautiful in the title. I‘ve only read the tagged book but want to read the others. #amonthofsongs

cbowlin1921 Beautiful Oblivion and Beautiful Disaster are two of my favorites! They actually tie in together in a really incredible way and I highly recommend them😊 3mo
MallenNC I‘ve read the Jamie McGuire ones. I liked them. 3mo

I‘m impressed 4 whole pages of actual storyline.
The remaining 260 pages of rather questionable content were a bit of a surprise.
I really should start reading the book summaries.
I‘ll never look at a conference table the same way again. And that‘s not a good thing. 😉 ☺️

Wow. There is a lot of sex in this book. And that is the problem. I like my romances with a strong plot (even my erotic ones). This had a very weak plot and only really started to improve in the last chapter.

Love it, realy loved it.

Een fijn boek om te lezen. Gewoon een leuk tussendoortje. Een erotische tussendoortje, maar niet smakeloos en plat. Een easy to read boek en een echte chicklit.

Melissasbookworld Heerlijke serie ❤️❤️🙌🏻 2y

I just couldn't anymore! Made it to 43%. The guy is a total a$$ - not like an alpha kind of jerk that's still respectful, but a sexual harasser, blame the girl for turning him on loser. The girl isn't better, she hates the guy, but is always "oh my body loves this so much that I can ignore my own common sense and his lack of respect" (for someone getting an MBA - she's an idiot.) It just annoyed me, some of my friends loved it, but not for me.

Megabooks Yikes! 2y

julesG Oh, thanks for the warning. Another series I do have on my virtual shelves but will approach with caution. 2y
MarriedtoMrT He doesn't really get better so good you bailed now. I still really liked this one but I read it when it was new and it was sort of on the cusp of the uber-alpha male contemporary comedies that are everywhere now. I haven't read all their books but there are some I love. Their writing and male leads get better over time. (edited) 2y
MarriedtoMrT P.S. I think this is my favorite of theirs 2y
LaurenReads @MarriedtoMrT thanks! The writing was good so I'll try your recommendation 2y
JayneChanger @MarriedtoMrT "Sweet filthy boy was my first Christina Lauren. It was mentioned in a SBTB podcast and the comment was "ignore the title" and "there's so much sex it in it", i knew I had to go check it out!! ❤️ Ansel 2y

This book was recommended to me through a Facebook group for fans of The Hating Game. I'll preface my review with the fact that NO ROMANCE NOVEL that I've read since THG has compared. That being said this was pretty good. More sex scenes than I'm normally comfortable with but the writing was a million times better than another inexplicably popular sex-centric novel (ahem). My only big qualm was there was a lot of telling and not showing.

Notafraidofwords The hating game is incomparable. 2y

True #guiltypleasure - mostly I'm pretty critical and easily bored by the books that are all about the sex. But sometimes I really like them if they have an interesting story. The more #crazysauce the plot or the relationship the better. #romantsy #osrbc

Dogearedcopy I love this series! It's a bit uneven; but this plus the Wild Seasons series (some crossover) make this a guilty pleasure of mind too! ❤ 2y
Christy2318 @Dogearedcopy I've only read the first 3 main books. I loved Bastard, was eh on Stranger, liked Player ok. I may read more eventually. 2y
LauraBrook Christina Lauren books are a guilty pleasure for me too. In fact, I need to finish both of those series! Something to look forward to!! ❤ 2y

Reading Romance novels makes me happy; but after having read them over the course of 35 years, it's challenging to find something fresh and engaging. Last year I discovered the Beautiful & Wild Season series by the writing duo Christina Lauren and have been hooked both series since! Contemporary romance that skews toward erotic and even a little kinky, they also have humor and a lively energy #FunFridayPhoto

LibrarianJen I'm trying to remember now if I've read this one....I too get in a rut with romance novels. I binge read them and then get sick of them and then a few books later binge on them again. #hopelessromantic 3y

A whirlwind romance that captured my heart. I loved the authors writing style as much as I loved the characters.
I think it's a must for contemporary romance fans.
one of my new favorites.

I love these books, but mind you it's about 95% erotica, 5% story/romance. But that's my jam. So yes, I LOVE these books! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was pretty good. I don't consider it very unique or special but it works if you are in for a romance read. While not my normal fair, I think I may continue on. #romanceread #weekendread #litsyread ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I do not understand why I've seen so many people read this and love it. It's a collection of sexual encounters with no depth and the romance wasn't convincing. This just didn't do it for me. Back to historicals!
