The seventh work in the New York Times and number-one internationally best-selling series that started with the Beautiful Bastard, Beautiful Stranger, and Beautiful Player novels. Featuring all the Beautiful characters...plus one tiny new addition to the group.
In Beautiful Stranger, finance whiz Sara Dillon met irresistibly sexy Brit Max Stella at a New York City club. Through the series we've watched them learn to balance commitment with their less than private brand of playfulness.
In Beautiful Beloved Max and Sara take it to the next step. But the question is: Will they be able to find a balance between the wild sexcapades they aren't ready to retire and the demands of parenthood that come along with their new beautiful bundle of joy? Parenthood: It's not for the weak of heart.

I love to read. I love all genres but romance in particular. The hotter and steamy and sexier book is the more I want to read it.
I love the entire series. And this a great addition to the series it adds a glimpse into the next book about maxes brother. You fall in love with the characters all over again and little glimpses of how everyone else is doing. it made me laugh out loud, and stop the book because I was loving some of the lines. I would definitely recommend this if you already like the series. It would not be an introductory book for the series I think you would be a little lost.
This one was hugely disappointing compared to all the other books/novellas in the series. I honestly struggled to finish it which almost never happens with me and books. And parts of it were just completely unrealistic or too cliché - seriously how is a smart woman like Sarah going to wear an expensive vintage dress while breastfeeding and not wear breast-pads with it... Especially when she's already had a problem with leaking before. Any woman who has ever nursed a child would never do something so stupid. The writers were just grasping at straws trying to find anything to fill out the weak plot on this one.
It's amazing to read about the reality of sex, lust and babies...makes those with children know there's a chance!
I think I've fallen madly in love with every one of Christina Lauren's leading men and Max Stella is no different. Loved this book and hope to see more of Max and Sara in the future.
What a lovely and sweet story! This series is one of my absolute favorites. Each installment, novella, etc. reminds me of why I fell in love with each character. Max and Sarah are the sweetest couple; trying to navigate parenthood and recapture that sexy sexy that was so delicious in Beautiful Stranger--it was nice to revisit their love story and best of all...the introduction of another hot and sexy Brit...can't wait for that story!
This series remains one of my go-to's for "listening do-overs". I definitely recommend getting the full series and spin-offs (Dirty Rowdy/Sweet Filthy) if you're a fan of contemporary erotic romance.
I LOVE MAX (and Jonathan Cole's version of Max - he and Sebastian York are 2 of the top narrators out there for men)! I Love his love for Sara and that they're so on the same page. Men usually don't allow their feelings to be so surface, don't acknowledge them. Max does that and more.
Max - I love his voice and as I said, I love that he allows his great love to be so transparent - He Owns It!! I love all the BB characters - and I love the books, but my favorite books, hands down would be the ones narrated by Jonathan and Sebastian - Grace is fine.
They bring real life to these characters, both are perfect for the parts..amazing feeling and depth. Though Beautiful Bastard started it all and as much as I like Chloe and Bennet, I love Max and Sara and Hannah and Will more, just because I can relate to them much more. Christina and Lauren have a way of writing sexy love stories that resonate - and these narrators translate that - I always have to listen to their narrations at least, at LEAST twice! Worth every penny!
The Love of Your Dreams
I beg (BEG) Christina & Lauren to consider writing this type of epilogue for Hannah and Will, and some of their other characters....Their die-hard fans will love it - I know I do!
People think of all of this as mommy porn, etc. Frankly, if a guy gets into bed with a girl within 20 pages I sometimes think this isn't the book for me. I have to be emotionally invested in the characters and Christina & Lauren are able to do that, draw me in and build characters I feel are real....I own all of your work in Kindle and Audible and Love them all!! KEEP IT UP!!!!
I love that this was reality. All couples go through this adjustment stage after a baby and we all secretly want to be selfish with our spouses. It was a perfect balance of hot and sweet in that perfect Max and Sarah way!
Can't wait for Niles' story, I feel it cuming (pun intended)
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
Like all the other books in this series this was funny, sweet and sexy. I love revisiting characters from previous books and getting a glimpse into how their lives are progressing.
As always the narration was excellent too.
Sure. It was a good little short listen
I enjoyed all the date mishaps.
They are both great narrators in my mind. They both bring the stories to life.
Book 3.6 in the Beautiful series follows Max and Sara as they navigate their way around parenthood, whilst still trying to keep their wild sex life from getting lost in life. Some hilarious laugh out loud scenes.
Funny, emotional, sexy
Max & Sarah reconnected
Yes all the beautiful they are all brilliant
Loved it can't wait for the next
