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.

This book is just a continuance of Beautiful Bastard and it is a must read if you have gotten invested in the characters.
This was my first audiobook with a duo narration. I totally enjoyed it. Listening to a male voice for Bennett's POV was so cool, even though I had to get used to Kirby's tone of voice.
Beautiful Bastard of course. It is the continuation after all. I love that it has the same sexy war/love between Ben and Chlo.
Easy. For Kirby: Ben and for Grace: Chlo. They both did great narrations for the main characters.
I loved when Bennett went to his mom for the engagement ring
Love love love love love BBitch
I would have to say Bennett. He makes me laugh. He has made a complete 180
I enjoyed their performances. The narrators can make or break a book in audible format. Grace Grant is so believable in both Beautiful Bastard and Beautiful Bitch. She is among my favorite narrators.
I am not in high school and going to answer these questions one at a time.
The fact is I was not crazy about thhis book, but I liked the first one in the series so I will try the third.
Really bad male narrator! He sounds like George Bush. (Seriously, especially at the end.) I've heard some of his other stuff and it was fine, but he should not read erotica. And he is definitely NOT Bennett Ryan.
Grace Grant continues to be awesome.
Story was too weak though.
The book was fine, another dopey sex story, but the narration was bad, especially the French.
Sure, although I could not get past the beginning of Beautiful Stranger (TERRIBLE "English" accent) and had to return it.
The French accent was hideous and I'm not even French! I'm sure there are narrators out there who are either native speakers of whatever language it's supposed to be in, or have better accents. I mean the whole point of an audiobook is that you LISTEN to it.
Ambivalence, but I cringed every time there was French spoken.
I have really liked this series. That said, I have other series I have liked more. That was until I stopped focusing totally on Bennet and Chloe. Beautiful Bombshell was a fun focus on Vegas, I dug it. Thanks for the Continuity! Please read: Beautiful Player was left off my list because I didn't know if it would pay to step away from focusing on Bennet and Chloe (Did I like the series enough to pay for this one??). I was wrong. After I finally listened to Beautiful Stranger (Max and Sara) , I realized I needed to Listen to Will's story on this one. Both Stranger and Player go into Depth in their characters - I love the his and hers versions and the accents by the way on these narrations as well - this is one of the cases where the narration surpasses the written book. Perhaps it's the evolution of the series in my mind, but I prefer to think it's the evolution of the writing (getting better and better). Bennet and Chloe still need more personalization - don't get me wrong, love them, but what they're feeling is never as clear as it is with Will and Hannah and Max and Sarah - I look forward to your continued growth in writing - especially since Beautiful Player..I'm hungry for more!
I love this book and the series, but this audio version is awful. The voice for Bennett Ryan does not match his personality one bit. It is way too kind and lyrical for the cool, calculating bastard we all love. Grace Grant is phenomenal for both Chloe and Bennett, which is the only reason I gave this audio book 3 stars. Her crisp, calculating, and edgy performance is right on. I am honestly not sure why a male actor was even brought in on this one, she did a great job reading both voices for Beautiful Bastard and continued on is this book. His voice just ruined it for me.
Everyone has to have that "Thing They Love!" This is how I find and keep up with mine!
Well I would recommend it to people first starting out that want a short title to listen to. I liked the story but I like the first one better and the second one (THIS ONE) was kind of like …. Oh yeah I bet I know what's going to happen next…. Yep…..
I like the fact that they both became to the same conclusion… I love it when you don't have to guess what some one wants…
When the friends come over and catch them in the act! Funny!!
No I jumped between this and Timothy! :) Mark Tufo has me rapped around his finger..
Having Grace Grant read Chloe's portion's ... amazing. Loved it. Muah. Thank you.
Chloe is awesome but Bennett Ryan is SO hot.
Grace Grant ... yes. Kirby Heybourne... NO. He is NOT my Mr. Ryan... :-(
Why did they have to change it up, it was fine how it was.
