I skipped over this book (I know I'm bad) and started with Sweet Filthy Boy. Let's just say it hooked me right away. Then it was on!!! I was fan girl, stalker.... had to read, meet them!!!
Well enough about me, Beautiful Bastard is like an opera. You know one that builds you up and is tantalizing, and then all of a sudden there is this big eruption of sound! That's kind of how this book is with words! Christina Lauren knows how to write a sexy book, they also know how to put heart in their books! The characters are so believable, you really want to hate Bennett at first, he is a bastard. Chole, she is kind of a bitch, but they are really so great together. The more you get to know them the more you begin to love them. This book was mostly about the hook up but there was a plot. I loved seeing the change in the characters through the book.
So, you have the intern Chloe. She is very smart, but her boss, Bennett really doesn't give her the credit she deserves. She calls him Beautiful Bastard to her friends. They walk a fine line with each other between love and hate, they have a deep attraction for each other.
Then you have Bennett, he is the son of the owner of the company. He is a total jerk at first anyway. He is a very dirty talker and a panty stealer. By three-fourths through the book he will redeem himself and will grovel! Yes women prevail!
I'm glad I got a late start with this series, I'm glad I didn't let negative reviews hold be back from reading an awesome book. Now, if those same people were to read it again and review it again, how many do you think would change their review based on the success of the book? Well I honestly do not review based on popularity of an author, which has lost me lots of brownie points in the past, but this book deserves better reviews than what I saw! I think it was great!
I give Beautiful Bastard 5 Platypires
Or 5 stars however you like to count things
BAMA Love!! ROLL TIDE!! And Keep Reading Y'all!
