We are now proud parents of a daughter and a wonderful son-in-law! He is also a child of The U. S. Navy, bonded over military time:)!
I read the reviews before listening to it. I ended up fast forwarding a lot. To me it was a lot of sex, with a wee bit of story. I'm not a prude when it comes to sex but neither do I want to listen to a book that is all about sex, which is the reason I never bought 50 shades of anything. There were a couple of funny parts but those were few and far between. Plus the sex had no imagination to it. Bottom line, very boring.
I'm a grad student with very little time to edit reviews because I'm editing research papers. Forgive the typos. They're made with love.
I hate you. So? I hate you. Sex. I hate him. I hate her. Sex. Hate, sex, sex, hate, kinky sex, naughty sex, boardroom sex, mom's bathroom sex, you cant have her sex, hotel sex, I love you sex. The end.
Oh. My bad. I should have warned you about the spoilers :)
So this review is a bit silly but then again so is the book. There's really no plot just a lot of hate and sex. He's hot, she's hot, he's mega rich, she's an intern, somehow they got off on the wrong foot then they just got off. No plot, no character decriptions, even less depth than FSOG if you can believe that, but then, the book its pretty hot so if you just want sex with a little bit of a situation, this is for you. Don't get me wrong, this book was fun to read, but I'm not giving it 5 stars. Harry Potter gets five stars. I'd give this book 2 stars if it didn't inspire some fun moments.
The narrator was good at doing the voices. I just felt like the sex was literally nonstop. The male was so mean, and the female couldn't control her desires. Plus, the career paranoia and obsession got old. I guess it just felt like too many extremes for a very long time, and then a happy ending that came and went in ten words or less.
This was okay, mainly a book about sex with a bit of romance thrown in and a cheesy hea ending.

Nothing, poor content, a little story would have helped.
More content, less sexual detail which was 95% of the story, ugh!!
Disappointment, anybody can write garbage.
Well, if you want a story that is 70% sex and very little dialogue, this is the book for you. I think up until the airplane scene they barely exchanged more than 2 sentences to each other. He hated her and she hated him based on their lack of interaction over the course of 9 months, then they can't look at each other without screwing like rabbits.
At first I could not see any chemistry between them, did not really get the panties fetiche at all. The end was quite cheesy and reminded me a bit of the beginning of Tamed.
Sales career / married 40 years with 5 grands, I like wholesome romance or mystery type books. I also enjoy self help or motivational books
The name should have been a clue. Could have been better if not quite so much constant stream of bad words and descriptions
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.

Overall it wasn't that bad. But I think it lacked plot. I wast just angry sex and then "oh I love you".
Am a book reader who have to many books and to little time to read them. I love humor, slow burn romance, and fast pace story.
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.
