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)
Loving Bennett Most!
Anytime Bennett shut Chloe up when she had an unnecessary attitue. I loved when they gave into each other. The end was so sweet.
It was ok, the voice of Bennett was a little over done.
A more mature version of Anastasia Steele!
I can see Henry Cavill, Will Sumner, Jensen Acklesor Jamie Dorian as Bennett and for Chloe - Leighten Meester, Minka Kelly, Mila Kunis because they have natural sexy sassiness and are the right age.
This book is so good. It makes you go through all of your emotions. Christina Lauren are great writers. You must read all the books in this series.
As a hopeless romantic I detest drama, especially pointless drama. The devastating fallout in the last 15 minutes of the story nearly ruined my overall experience. It was unnecessary, frivolous, and anticlimactical (it's a word trust me) it really kills the momentum that the previous 7 hrs had built. Her reaction seems uncharacteristic and detracts from Chloe's seemingly strong persona. Other than that I fucking loved it!
