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.

Pretty freaking high.
Grace Grant is an excellent narrator, she makes subtle differences to female characters so you can tell who is talking without one girl being a valley girl or ghetto.
Kirby Heybourne, well, he did a great job. I've seen him in some LDS movies and all I could think the entire time was, "Le gasp, did he really just SAY that?!" I didn't know if it was hot because of the story or because I knew who was saying it.
Yep and I did!
Love this series! Hopefully we'll have another one!

After reading Beautiful Bastard, I was really happy to see that this one had both a male and female narrator. While the story was much more enjoyable with the two narrators, I'm glad I knew Bennett enjoyed the company of women; His voice was deceptive! Overall, the story was hot and steamy and I enjoyed following Chloe and Bennett through this second book.
I debated whether to read Beautiful Bitch or Beautiful Stranger first, since Stranger was released before Bitch. Now that I've started Beautiful Stranger, I'm glad I read BB first!
I love audio books that the characters come to life and have me feeling as if I was there too.
This was a little sample to hold use over until be can find out more of Chloe and Bennett's story. It was more from Bennett's POV as to what was happening from BB book 1 and BS Book 2. I was thrilled and happy listening and then it ended. :( Its def a good buy as its less than $4. Cant wait for the next three books. High Five CL! and as always GG as a narrator rocks hard and KH you did your thang too! Happy Listening!
I guess I was hoping for more. I really liked this series and thought that this would be a bit more. It was so short and I feel like I wanted more and did not get it. You did get a bit of background into Chloe’s and Bennett's relationship. But is was nothing exciting or wow about it. It was like chapters that she took out of the first book and thought "hey maybe I can make some more money publishing them " and then stuck them in a little book. I've read other novella's that had great little stories to them. I wish she would have written a entire book with more twists and turns for them. I like all the character's she has written about and so I was hoping that she would have written about all of them to catch us all up. Still love the series and would highly recommend it but if you did not get this book you don't lose any of the story.
Ok story. Beautiful Bitch is a continuation of book one, Beautiful Bastard. Book one was 7 hrs. long and this book was 3 so combining the two together would have been much better. The story did not add to book one at all and left the listener without anticipation of what was to come.
I loved this book! The dynamic between Chloe & Bennett has been a pleasure to listen to. This story is basically a novella following Beautiful Bastard, although the 3rd book (Beautiful Stranger) was released prior to it...no matter, it was a joy to hear how the two came to the point where STRANGER picks up. The addition of a new narrator was a shift, but, it didn't ruin it I just had to grow accustomed to the new voice of Bennett. I hope the author explores other characters or perhaps writes an equally naughty new series. This contemporary romance offers great eroticism and awesome humor that makes you laugh out loud. Highly recommended!!!
Give me a Hot Sexy Book, with a good story to listen to, have that "OH MY" sigh, Love most of what I have, but want more. Tell me it ALL!
yes, just because it closes gaps
yes I would., it's HOT that's for sure, and it shows a side of Bennet that I love, he's so in love with Chloe and she him, and in this book you learn a lot about Chloe and her views on expressing that love. They were made for one another. Ben is a kid with her, and when he needs to be serious he does it kindly, he's so in love with Chloe.
Grace is good, real good, and I have said before she has a hard time with men's voices, but Kirby was not what I expected. He version of Bennet was missing something, not what I expected.
I really don't know, it's a small book it's just needed information, that I really liked, but a tag line, I don't know cause the book was so good. And Stranger was excellent as well.
As mentioned, this is much needed information about BB. And it's good information. It pulls it all together when you read BS. I love these books and hope that the authors run with this. I am so ready to listen to Will's story and get to know who he falls for. I am sooo wanting more of Sara and Max as well. These books are not your run of the mill FIFTY. These have a story line, you follow and can see. You hear her talk about the relationship , then he talks about it. That I love. As long as they keep this up and keep these folks in them and keep me updated about them... I will read. For sure.
Yes. Christina Lauren did an unbelievable job with this novella. It was short as a novella normally is, but there was so much packed into the book. It did not disappointment and it is a must have for fans of the series. And, the cherry on top, IT IS HOT!
It gives us so much information on Bennett and Chloe. I love that they brought you up to speed in such a short read. It is just awesome all the way around. It was so packed there wasn't one part I favored over any other.
Grace Grant is a favorite of mine. Love her as the voice of Chloe. Kirby Heybourne was iffy for me to be honest as the voice of Bennett. But after the second time through I warmed up to him. I hear a lot of complaints about his performance; however, he did grow on me by the second time around.
Loved the ending. It was perfect.
I do, lol, I sometimes prefer to hear instead of read.
This is my first book by Kirby Heybourne and I wish he would of done Bennett's voice in Beautiful Bastard just to give it a guys view. I love Grace's voice!
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
Funny, sexy, fills in the blanks from BB to BS....
I loved when Bennett meets Chloe's Dad.....so funny!!!!
When they call each other "home"....so sweet.
I am up in the air about Bennett's narrator...Grace does him better but it is from his point of view so I see why they have a male narrate him; however, I do not picture Bennett sounding like this. I loved BB and BS so I would have listened to this even if they would have had R2D2 narrate.
