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...
Mom of three and a full time job who enjoys reading but doesn't have time. This is perfect: plug in my headphones and I'm on my way.
Was it just me or did the male voice sound like a robot? Of course from the last book I wanted to know the story after they made up and this was perfect- can't wait to listen to the next novel. But I really hope the male voice doesn't sound like a robot.
Am a book reader who have to many books and to little time to do it.
Enjoyed this book a little more than Beautiful Bastard since they spilt up the POV in a male and female narratives. Also though it was short it was really sweet. There is a bigger chance to continue this series but probably not right now. Also the flashbacks on a year relationship was cute and there bad luck on traveling.
What a spicy little thing this was. And thank you ladies for giving us another taste of this enthralling couple. The narration was much less a "read" and way more a "performance". Superb in its visualization. I hope we hear more from the talented Grace and Kirby. Loved it all. Thanx! CS
Say something about yourself!
Bennett and Chloe!
His feelings about being in France with her, and the blue colors; the blue urn he knew she'd love.
They are OK readers, but he's not macho voiced enough to carry Bennett off. She's OK but her Bennett isn't male deep enough.
I so loved Beautiful bastard and having both pov in different chapters. This .5 did not do it for me.
First I think that even if they both love each other and they are now in a relationship, there could've still have tensions. (Just like in fifty shades, even married there were tension and sexy scenes)
Second, Kirby's voice is not Bennet. I much preferred when Grace did both voices. It felt more believable and less flat.
Third unless you can get it for 2$ don't bother. Too expensive for what it is. You can go straight to Beautiful Stranger and not miss anything ( as they touch some points of this .5 book there) the 2nd book is totally worth it though!
Used to read a ton... as life got busier, didn't have the time... Discovered Audible and LOVE IT! 51 year old professional female.
Disappointed to have Sebastian York replaced. Was distracted by the male voice talent. Didn't enjoy as much as other's in the series.
Unfortunately I felt the sequel was too rushed and didn't provide enough of a story or conflict. Not impressed. I was really looking forward to life after Beautiful Bastard. Still gonna go in to Beautiful Stranger.
