Beautiful Bitch | [Christina Lauren]

Beautiful Bitch

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.

    "Loving this *HOT* series"

    Despite the title (I hate it) and length of this book (way too short) this was another amazing and super HOT listen by Christina Lauren. Wow! These ladies know how to write a sexy series!
    This book picks up where Beautiful Bastard ended and before we get to Beautiful Stranger. If you were curious to see what happened to Bennett and Chloe between books then this is a must get for you.
    Almost every scene in this book is dripping with heat and intensity. There is plenty of hot sex but this book had more romance than the others.

    I'm just sorry it ended so quickly.

    5 stars!,

    "Ehhhh."

    I really enjoyed the previous book in this series, Beautiful Bastard. It ranks as one of my favorites. It was not only significantly better than any of the other books littering up this genre in recent history, I think it holds its own compared to more mainstream fiction. The narrator really enhanced the book.

    This sequel was just OK. It did not include the tension and the energy the first book included. What made Bastard so compelling was the friction between the two main characters. The author found exactly the right chemical reaction between the two. It might be unrealistic to expect that reaction to survive once they were a committed couple. But I sure missed it when I read this book. It wasn't a bad book, but it didn't explode like the first one did and it wasn't nearly as funny. Grace Grant did a good job, but adding the male narrator added nothing to the experience.

    "Kirby is NOT Bennet Ryan"
    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    This book was good but the biggest problem for me is that Kirby Heybourne is NOT Bennet Ryan, he's Nick from Gone Girl. He is actually, perfectly Nick from Gone Girl. Not a deep enough voice or sexy enough cadence for BR.

    "Hot Captivating stuff"
    Any additional comments?

    I so wish this book was longer but - it was amazing and oh so yummy hot. Christina Lauren has charmed me once again with this sexy read. It was over way to quick but hay, lets hope she is writing at triple speed for more of the same. The story was delivered perfectly by Grace Grant , and Kirby Heybourne, the story really suited the double narration. Another 5 star yummy listen. :)

    "Good ending for Bennett/Chloe"
    What did you love best about Beautiful Bitch?

    Kirby Heybourne can actually read French quiet well. He sounds sexy.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dominique, Max's house keeper. She got Bennett tipsy and sent him in town to get some loving someone else b/c he was moping around while waiting for Chloe to get to France.


    What about Grace Grant and Kirby Heybourne ’s performance did you like?

    They get in to characters as they read Bennett and Chloe.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a good ending for Bennett and Chloe. I love that this book is written through both Bennett and Chloe point of views. The sex scenes were hot and steamy. I like the fact that Chloe's personality chill out a little. She was not as brazen as the first book but she was still head strong and stood up for herself. I like the fact that she recognized her feelings much faster in this book and it did not dragged out. I love Bennett and how human he was and how much he loved Chloe. All in all, this is a good read. If you read Beautiful Bastard, you have to read this book. My favorite quote of this book was Bennett's mother advice to him, "Find the woman who will be your equal in every way, don't let yourself fall for someone who would put your world before theirs, fall for the power house who lives as fearlessly as you do. Find a woman who makes you want to be a better man."

    "Cute"
    Would you try another book from Christina Lauren and/or Grace Grant and Kirby Heybourne ?

    Yes but maybe not Kirby


    Would you be willing to try another book from Christina Lauren? Why or why not?

    Yes


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I didn't get why if u have two narrators why do I still have to hear Kirby doing the female lead and the same goes for Grace. I didn't really care for Kirby but I do have to say he did get a little better the more the book went on.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    I get that the writer is trying to show the vulnerable side of the characters but I think Ryan was to sappy, so maybe if he weren't so needy but I enjoyed the story it was cute.

    I have NO time to read so Audible is perfect! I listen while commuting and even at the gym. My interests vary from month to month.

    "Heck yeah!"

    How many times have you finished a book and thought, man, I wish there was more to that story....WISH GRANTED!

    This book picks up where beautiful bastard leaves off, and should be read prior to beautiful stranger...bad publisher for releasing them out of order!

    We learn more about Chloe and Bennets relationship and this book fills in the back story that was eluded to in beautiful stranger.

    There were some hot scenes and the characters were great as always! For less than $4 no need to use a credit, enjoy!!!!!

    "Ummm... Dual Narration :("

    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...

    "Terrible Accent"
    Would you try another book from Christina Lauren and/or Grace Grant and Kirby Heybourne ?

    The book was fine, another dopey sex story, but the narration was bad, especially the French.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Christina Lauren? Why or why not?

    Sure, although I could not get past the beginning of Beautiful Stranger (TERRIBLE "English" accent) and had to return it.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    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.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Ambivalence, but I cringed every time there was French spoken.

    What disappointed you about Beautiful Bitch?

    After beautiful bastard I was looking forward to the continued story of Bennett and Chloe , this has been rushed its short and has no real content such a shame as there is a lot of mileage in there story but Christina has tried to cash in on the success of bastard and not paid enough attention to this book . It's also extremely short , trust me when I say there is nothing new in this book , after bastard and even better still stranger a real big let down.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Christina Lauren again?

    Yes


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The male narrator was all wrong Grace is as good as ever


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    Author Needs to re read bastard and stranger herself and then realise the disappointment - sorry
