I quit the book after two chapters.
The narrator was fine, it was the story that shut this mess down.
Chapters one and two.
Don't waste your credit!
I am a lover of books. I enjoy losing myself in a fabulous romance and great story plot.
This listening experience was comparable to taking my first bite into the chocolate ganache cupcake at SPRINKLES! Decadent, unbelievably delicious, and this is what this little series is all about…. I mean what can be more decadent, and fantastical than the relationship between Bennett Ryan and Chloe Mills?
Bennett Ryan earns his name of "Beautiful Bastard" because he is such a high-powered, executive with impressive business skills shrouded by a no-nonsense attitude that can be intimidating to most, but not his intern Chloe. Chloe is a gorgeous intern, who is intelligent, works hard, and gives as good as she gets. She is no push over whatsoever, and that is one of the things I love about her! She's quick on her toes with come backs that are just awesome! I really wish they would make a movie based on this book because the banter between Bennett & Chloe is absolutely hilarious and hot & would be great to see unfolded on the silver screen! Now, there are f-bombs everywhere in this book & between the leads, but it just works.
If you start this book, there's no getting away from these characters…their chemistry is off the charts and their fun romps will leave you breathless & reaching for your own significant other…I mean what can get the blood boiling more than clandestine rendezvous in the 18th floor stairwell, in lingerie dressing rooms, on desks, in restrooms…..OMG, and that's just to name a few…LOL. Bennett & Chloe's explosive attraction for one another was fabulous to follow as they settle into the realization that it's not just about the greatest sex of their lives…these two are meant to be as they equal one another in every way.
While Bennet & Chole's relationship is on fire, you also get other treats in this book, such as Bennett's wonderful family. His parents, brother, Henry, sister-in-law, Nena, and adorable niece Sophia are a great surprise in this book. It was nice to see that Bennett came from such an awesome, supportive family who were totally Team Chloe..LOL (to his annoyance). I also enjoyed Chloe's friend Sarah Dillon who is the heroine in the next book….
Thankfully, the series continues & Christina Lauren is probably one of the most conscientious authors when it comes to her readers because of the trace of sexalicious bread crumbs she's leaving with her 1.5 novella books..Can't wait to read Beautiful Bitch next!
Lastly, loved the narrator! She was fabulous! Grace Grant the listening experience all the more enjoyable!
Books books books
Just the whole darn book
If Grace and maybe 3 other narrators I love were the only ones to narrate I'd be buying every book instead of hesitating because someone sucks. Love Grace she is AMAZING!
This book is a delicious torture. It's funny witty and beyond sexy.love the characters the love hate thing they have going on and super freaking hott sex.
Audible Addict!!! My Favorite books have change since joining Audible and my taste for erotic has enhanced! Follow me to the dark side. ;)
I just loved the charater Bennet. Though he was a bastard he was the type of bastard you fall in love with.
The Bastard truly revealed himself on the the 18th floor. It was so very hot that I am smiling as I am typing.
No this was my first and I truly enjoyed it.
I was moved by Bennet and his sided of the story. I don’t know if that makes me a crazy but I love when a charterer stands up and doesn’t given in just because that what they think the reader expects. I love that Chloe can give it and take it…. and he can give it. literally
Get It. Worth every word.
I was pleasantly surprised with this book. It is the first book that I have read by this author and was happy that I did so. Sometimes this type of gendra can be overdone with no storyline at all. Happy to say this is not the case. Although the plot is not complex it was still good to listen to. I have pre-ordered the next two books:) This book has a similar feel to books like Sylvia Day and E.L. James but still keeps its individuality. The sex scenes are hot and steamy but not so much that it is over done. I liked the characters and the fact that she called him a Beautiful Bastard. The narrator did a great job of acting out the story and not just reading it. I would recommend this book and can't wait for the next book to be released.
Funny, Sexy and Naughty! Panty tearing fun!
Bennett - Hot, sexy bastard!
No. But she did a wonderful job with this book.
Laughed out load a few time!
I have recommended this book often. Both to those who listen to audio books and those who have not tried audio yet.
After starting this book adventure based on my long drives, it has become an obsession, a method for relaxation and enjoyment.
From the beginning, the relationship between Boss and Intern are intense without the sex involved. I love books with strong women and Chloe did not let me down. She had confidence, fire and brilliance all at once. Bennett's need for a confident women, left me breathless. I have been through the book twice and will be on my list to revisit in the future. I actually wish the book would have had a few more chapters ... As it left me wanting more.
I listened to this book twice literally back to back it was so hot! It was a cute love story mingled with awesome sex scenes. My only reservation is regarding the narrator's male voice characterization--seemed a little forced and not that sexy, but, I got into it after a bit. On a side note, Jill Redfield, the narrator of "Bared to You" and "Reflected in You" probably would've made this story smolder even more, but, I digress--the book is told through the male and female main character's points of view which I really appreciated. Too often books are only told via the woman and the counterparts view is inferred. If you can't handle explicit, raw sexy talk this is definitely not the book for you.
but way too much sex with poorly developed story lines... read like a bad marathon of pornography
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Christina Lauren is now one of my Favourite authors. This book was very well written with an interesting and exciting story. There's lot's of great sex that end's in love. Grace Grant does and excellent job as narrator. Wish there were more books out by Christina. :)
