Picking up where Beautiful Bastard left off, Chloe Mills and Bennett Ryan continue their steamy, combative relationship.
Just when Chloe’s career starts to take off, Bennett wishes it would all slow down long enough to spend a wild night alone with his girlfriend. But after he refuses to take no for an answer, Chloe and Bennett find themselves with two plane tickets, one French Villa, and a surprising conversation that, predictably, leaves them wrestling under the covers.

I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
Dual Narration really can kill a story. I soo loved Beautiful Bastard! It was amazing.. But this... I pre-ordered this... but the dual narration killed it. I love Grace Grant as a narrator, she could have done this book alone. Dual Narration just ruin this for me, I didn't make it past chapter 2. I wonder if it got better? Who knows...
1. Why would the producer change readers in a sequel with the same characters? I figured I had to listen to this sequel, but it isn't nearly as good as the first book.
Not a fan of the man who is reading's voice. It's not what I would imagine or like to hear and kind of takes away from the story. Otherwise, I really enjoyed this and listened to it in only 2 days!
Beautiful Bitch reads as extra chapters and epilogue for Beautiful Bastard, especially since I listened to it after finishing up BB.
I enjoyed seeing where Chloe and Bennett were after their HEA in BB and how they continue to keep the heat in their relationship.
Grace Grant narrated Chloe's POV in Beautiful Bitch. She did a great job with Chloe and a pretty good job with the male voices. She truly performed the story, not just read it. She made me feel the emotions of the characters while I listened.
Kirby Heybourne narrated Bennett's POV. He did a good job with Bennett. But I really loved his British accent for Max.
Good book just didn't like the switching of the narrators If they would have had the man do the guy part and the women do the girls part
I'm not sure why this short book wasn't added to the end of Beautiful Bastard. It was an ok read but seemed unnecessary as an individual book. I love the series as a whole. The readers voice was bland.
Grace Grant does a fabulous job narrating this series, but the addition of Kirby Heybourne voicing Bennett, for me, took a lot of the enjoyment away. Grant speaks for Bennett wonderfully, but unfortunately it sounded like Heybourne took none of her development of Bennett into consideration while doing his part. It was almost like they were two different characters... I found it hard to pay attention to the story because the disconnect was so strong. You might want to consider the ebook instead for this particular story.
