An ambitious intern. A perfectionist executive. And a whole lot of name calling. Discover the story that garnered more than two million reads online.
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 two million reads on fan-fiction sites - Beautiful Bastard has been extensively updated for rerelease.

"The perfect blend of sex, sass and heart, Beautiful Bastard is a steamy battle of wills that will get your blood pumping!" (S.C. Stephens, best-selling author of Thoughtless)
I loved this story. I loved these characters. I love a strong female and I love a cocky bastard. The banter between Chloe and Bennett could set stuff on fire.
I listened to this on audio and thoroughly enjoyed it. Originally I was disappointed that Bennett wasn't read by a man. After a few chapters I got over it.
Looking forward to exploring more from this author!
The narrator was amazing...
The story was great and the sex scenes well made me sweat...
Overall great read and with your credit. Going to the next book on the series.
I loved almost everything about this book. The only thing I didn't like was that sometimes you couldn't tell if the narrator was in a woman's voice or mans voice. other than that it was amazing!
From beginning to end this book was great! Loved Chloé and Bennett ' s raw emotion and chemistry. They were always on fire for each other.
I couldn't stop listening I was obsessed and now I'm sad that it's over. I'm still reeling by how hot this book was. Hot hot hot! Take it from an avid romantic novel listener this is a great book! I can't wait to read another novel by the same author.
Boss-subordinate relationship turns steamy, then they fall in love. Typical angst, hot office sex. The f-bomb is distracting and detracts from the story at times. But, really, who amongst hasn't shared this fantasy at one time or another?
