Review: Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren


ebook, 320 pages
Published February 12th 2013 by Gallery Books 
 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.

Beautiful Bastard is about Intern Chloe Mills and COO of Ryan Media, Bennett Ryan. Chloe Mills is a very smart, beautiful and independent woman. She hasn’t had the easiest of lives but she hasn’t had the worst. She has worked for Ryan Media for 6 years and has done an excellent job. She loved her job even more before she started working under Mr. Mills, aka the beautiful bastard. Will she ever be able to see Bennett for more the asshole he presents himself as? Will she put her internship on the line for some hot office sex with her beautiful boss?

Bennett Ryan is one of the hottest, smartest, and meanest bachelors on the planet. He works really hard for his families company. When Ms. Mills gives him back everything he dishes out he doesn’t know how to act. He is so attracted to her but he knows that it is against company policy. How long can he keep his hands to himself? Will he go against everything for some steamy sex with an intern?

This was a HOT, sexy, read for me. The sexual chemistry between Chloe and Bennett is off the charts. They are made for one another. They have so much to lose but go for it anyway. I really love the banter between the two of them. A little humor and a whole lot of dirty. Who would have thought that the great Bennett Ryan would have an obsession with hoarding ripped panties! The writing was really good, the story and plot were satisfying. I really don’t know why it took me so long to read this one. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.
