I hate to see this series end, but this was great finale to one of my all time favorite series! Jensen's and Pippa's story was good, but I'll always love the trio of couples that are the mainstays of the series. I'd totally want to befriend these people and babysit their kids. Yet another winner for Christina Lauren. If you're new to the author, go get this entire series TODAY!
I ignore genre labels. Some of my favorite books are outside my genre comfort zone. Listening to audiobooks is still reading. Not theater.
The primary story in this last book of the series was kind of sad and depressing. It started off fairly strong with the flight from London to Boston. This scene had echos of some of the more embarrassing vignettes in Beautiful Bastard. But Pippa and Jensen seemed to have built a relationship on nothing more than convenience and proximity. So when those two factors were removed, it didn't seem believable that they would really miss each other, enough to fly back across the ocean to try and build a more permanent relationship.
What made this book worth reading was the fact that it brought back all of the characters from earlier books and gave them all a great send-off. Especially Chloe and Bennet. In those two characters, Lauren created rivals for some of the best fictional couples of all time. Pretty sure they would be the parents from hell, but it would never be boring. I will miss them, but it is time for the series to end.
This series is hilarious, sexy, hot... And did I say hilarious?! Sebastian York is THE BEST OF THE BEST!! GRACE GRANT... THE BEST FEMALE VOICE!
I am a die hard fan of Christina Lauren and though I liked this book, the characters didn't have the intense chemistry I saw in stranger, player and secret. It was ok and Im truly sad to see the series end.
This was a solid story. Worth a credit. It wasn't the best of the Christina Lauren books but if you read the other books in the series there's no way you should miss this one. It has all the previous characters and that alone makes it a treat. The issue is the narration. Sebastian York is perfection as usual. He was meant to narrate this book series. The issue was Grace Grant doing a British accent. Horrible, terrible, annoying. I don't understand why they didn't just have someone who was British do this narration. Grace Grant is perfect and delightful for all the other characters she's narrated in this series, just not this one.
Enjoy romance, erotic, and YA
The collage of characters uniting for this finale sealed the series perfectly. The narrators were all fantastic! JC&JY only narrated their epilogue. GG & SY narrated Pippa & Jensen. Free spirited Pippa & workaholic Jensen were opposites who met on an airplane. Things get crazy fun after this unexpected meeting. Absolutely worth the credit!
It comes a time when you have to choose between listening to audible or going to bed.
This book was the ending worth waiting for. Not only did we see Jensen and Pippa's love story we also had insight into the other charters. This well worth the credit.
My favorite characters are Chloe & Bennet , awesome narrators, Grace Grant I can't get enough from her & Sebastian York what a sexy voice of man brings these books a live 💜💜💜
Worthy of this great series. Perfect narration. Really liked Pippa and her quirkiness. Loved the interaction between the older characters.
ACES FINISH!! LOVED THE WHOLE SERIES!! I really worried this final book would be choppy but it rolled all the stories into a smooth finish! Her writing makes you feel like you live in their world!
Yes & no
Jenson. I just connected more with him than Pippa
Love Sebastian York & Grace Grant are fantastic narrator's
Not the best Beautiful book don't get me wrong I enjoyed it but it wasn't the best one
"A little disappointing"
I was so looking forward to this Beautiful Bastard finale, and I've got to say I was slightly disappointed. I've read and enjoyed all the previous books in the series immensely, but I just couldn't seem to gel with Jensen and Pippa. The story is good, the writing excellent, but I didn't feel the love so to speak. They were opposites and we all know opposites attract, and it would appear the attraction was there, even the passion was there, there was just something missing between them, and I can't seem to put my finger on it. There were funny bits, seriously funny bits and sexy bits that kept the book alive for me. I was really rooting for their HEA, Jenson (Sebastian York)I loved, but Pippa (Grace Grant) wound me up for some unexplainable reason. I found I was more invested in hearing about all the other characters in the story rather than Pippa. I also loved the epilogues from the previous couples. For this reason I'm giving it four stars.
"A beautiful story and The perfect epilogue"
As with all the books in this series Jenson and Pippa's story was fun, laugh out loud funny, sexy, sad, heartbreaking and truly lovely ...
I'm heartbroken to see the end of this fabulous series 😔every character and every story deserved 5* but if I had to choose a couple and two characters who will remain with me then Bennett and Chloe would definitely win the top prize .. the beautiful bastard and the beautiful bitch ' just brilliant'. Grace Grant and Sebastian York were outstanding on this and many of the series !!! I can see that I'll be revisiting the series again soon .. thank you Christina Lauren 👏🏻👏🏻
