I might be a little, over the top, but when I am searching for a new book or series, as I prefer, to listen to, I actually do reaearch. I search different Web sites, read both amature and professional reviews and deliberate. This series came up on several independent articles, so I bought book one. Maybe there are readers/listeners that prefer short, concise stories where the story is comfortably predictable; but I do not.
This story was touted as one of the most popular erotica novels, of recent years. It was supposed to be a deep romance, but I disagree. It contained some erotica and romance but deep, it was not.
Maybe authors like Kristen Ashley, Diana Gabledon and Jodi Malpus have ruined me, but this novel is too short and the characters are seriously underdeveloped. It is somewhat entertaining and I find I want to know Max and Sarah's story (the next novel in the series) but I know the novel will leave me wanting.
I guess what I am trying to say is that if I were to make one statement about, "Beautiful Bastard" and the follow up novella, "Beautiful Bitch", combined, it would be that they are a good outline for a potentially powerful novel.

uggg WHY do these books go soooo sloooww till the last 20 minutes and then get decent only to end???!!!! I want to know what happens & feel like maybe the 2nd book will hopefully be better. But I'm not sure I care enough to start it immediately :/ ALSO ....this audio could've had a MALE read the male parts
This was a good story. There was a lot of sex which I felt was good and bad. This sex was, yes, hit. However, I felt at times the author over did it. She should have invested more time in building the relationship between the two characters. I also felt it was weird that Chloe and Bennett called each other Ms. Mills and Mr. Ryan after they had been having sex for a while. They even thought of each other as Mr. Ryan & Ms. Mills most of the story. I felt like that took away from the building of their relationship. Why did they fall in love? Was it sex or respect for each other? I almost, as I write this review, want to change my rating to 3 stars because the writer spend a lot of time on them having sex when it seemed as a couple they could have been a powerhouse in business and as lovers. I wanted to see what Henry pointed out that they were just alike. Could they have worked on an account together that the reader saw which could help build their relationship and she how powerful they could be in love and business?
Overall it wasn't that bad. But I think it lacked plot. I wast just angry sex and then "oh I love you".
Mom of three and a full time job who enjoys reading but doesn't have time. This is perfect: plug in my headphones and I'm on my way.
It ranks pretty high- I loved the story line
Of course Mr. Bennett- phew what a MAN!!!
I haven't and I did enjoy her reading but I would had loved for Mr. Bennett to have been voiced by a male voice. It would had added the extra touch.
I found this book really hot, and loved the narrator too. Sexually I wasn’t as into it as I have been with other authors but I’m glad I gave it a shot and listened. I got the referral from Pinterest and haven’t been disappointed yet. I will probably try more by this series in the future.
Am a book reader who have to many books and to little time to do it.
This so needed two different narrators since it gets so confusing between Bennet and Chloe. This had plenty of sexy times that were fueled by anger mostly and then we have the break up because of a misunderstanding. Bennett and Chloe's relationship seemed to happen way to fast and I wasn't into it.
May continue haven't decided yet.
