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)
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.
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.
I read this book and wanted to listen to the audio version. I would've liked it more if it had two narrators..a woman and a man. It would have been much better and funnier to listen..overall it was good.
This was a good steamy listen. Don't listen to while driving or operating machinery! It can hold you transfixed at times. The characters were enjoyable but predictable. The main female character is sexy and spunky and the male character is an ass at first but then is captured by her appeal. It's a good, fun listen and hard to put down! I think I did nothing all day!
