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.

    "Explicit Fun!"

    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!

    "Sexy, steamy"

    Constant sex, that starts out with a feel of sexual harassment on the job. Windows will never be the same

    "Addicting!!!"
    If you could sum up Beautiful Bastard in three words, what would they be?

    Loving Bennett Most!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Beautiful Bastard?

    Anytime Bennett shut Chloe up when she had an unnecessary attitue. I loved when they gave into each other. The end was so sweet.


    What about Grace Grant’s performance did you like?

    It was ok, the voice of Bennett was a little over done.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A more mature version of Anastasia Steele!


    Any additional comments?

    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.
