Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Nice progression, perfect balance"

    Steamy moments every chapter and still a decent plot. Even with the lingerie bill and easy access wardrobe, I was able to suspend disbelief (mostly).

    Story
    "Heated!!"
    What other book might you compare Beautiful Bastard to and why?

    "Fifty Shades of Grey" However, I thought Beautiful Bastard to be more mutual. Has all the fun without all the crazy toys.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    My favorite part is him going to dinner at his parents. Only to have his neice see right through all his bastardly attitude. You know at that point. He has another side to him.

    Story
    "Not worth a credit"

    This book was decently written, edited, & narrated. The main reason it gets only 2 stars is that the entire premise of the story is a bit skeevy. If it goes on sale, which is how I got it, then it may be worth a try. It definitely kept me til the end but I had to take breaks from the story as the entire premise made it difficult for me to listen. Really, a boss in a power position with an employee having sexual relations is a bit much to take.

    "50 Whatevers has nothing on this Beautiful Bastard"

    This is definitely how it's done. strong women, strong men, no one trying to break or fix one another. 50 Shades of Boring has nothing on this Beautiful Bastard.

    "Good read"

    This was a first Lauren novel and I wasn't expecting all the sex mainly because the dichotomy between Chloe and Bennet was hot/cold throughout the novel. Still a good plot line.
