Publisher's Summary

Escaping a cheating ex, finance whiz Sara Dillon's moved to New York City and is looking for excitement and passion without a lot of strings attached. So meeting the irresistible, sexy Brit at a dance club should have meant nothing more than a night's fun. But the manner - and speed - with which he melts her inhibitions turns him from a one-time hookup into her Beautiful Stranger.

The whole city knows that Max Stella loves women, not that he's ever found one he particularly wants to keep around. Despite pulling in plenty with his Wall Street bad-boy charm, it's not until Sara - and the wild photos she lets him take of her - that he starts wondering if there's someone for him outside of the bedroom.

Hooking up in places where anybody could catch them, the only thing scarier for Sara than getting caught in public is having Max get too close in private.

    "Another "Beautiful" Story!"

    This narration was much better than the last Beautiful audiobook, but still wasn't as fabulous as I'm used to. It wasn't issues with audible inhalation or overly long pauses but more that the narrators weren't as strong in the production as they be. Both of the narrators had a few instances where they forgot to narrate a certain voice like they had before or they didn't do as good a job differentiating between certain male or female voices. I have a feeling that this book may be a first time narration for one, if not both, of them.

    Still, this book was durrtyy and so good, I quickly got over the irritating narration quality! Sara was a little bit shy but a rebel at heart and Max made that bad girl come out in a good way. Although a playboy, Max was good for her; he made truly helped her discover how to be more positive and accepting of her trusting personality. One note though: This book was definitely better with your headphones in and NOT in a public/professional atmosphere. I made the mistake of listening to it on my lunch break at work, which was a total mistake. :/ I don't regret listening to it though. Listening to Cole's deep English accent say something naughty was the reason I bought it in the first place!

    "Not as good as Beautiful Bastard but"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It was ok and had some interesting story line to make you want to follow what happens I thing Beautiful Bastard was much better, but in this book the characters from that book are also in this one so there is carry over.

    Enjoyed this one so much. Sweet, sexy, and believable story! Left me wanting more! I enjoyed it more than Beautiful Bastard. I liked both narrators. My only criticism is that the accents sounded more Scottish than British at times. Otherwise great narration.

    "LOVED Beautiful B*stard-LOVE Beautiful Stranger **"
    What made the experience of listening to Beautiful Stranger the most enjoyable?

    This was a fantastic book - not as good as the first (Beautiful Bastard) but I did like the story. It was quick moving and kept my interest-however, I feel like I've read this plot somewhere else before (especially the photography aspect).


    What did you like best about this story?

    The sex is fantastic!


    Did Grace Grant and Jonathan R. Cole do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I really like Grace Grant's performance in Beautiful B*stard for all the characters-this performance wasn't as good; not sure if the switching back and forth between narrators took away from it or what.


    Any additional comments?

    Great writing, sexy & fun! Enjoy!

    "WOW!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Beautiful Stranger?

    Sarah had been in a 4 year relationship with an older prominent man seeking political office. He'd been cheating on her from the beginning and she'd had enough. She moved to NYC to start a new life, and where her best friend lived.Christina Lauren created two beautiful characters. Her first night in NYC, she joined her best friend for a party with friends at a dancing club. She was ordering shots at the bar when this gorgeous man walks over to her and begins to flirt. She decides not to give her name having no idea whether he is a dangerous pervert or not. He makes it clear he isn't and tells her that he'd like to shag her at his apartment, or hers if she'd prefer. Debating with herself that she was tempted and feeling hot and sexy she decided against it and brought the drinks to her friends waiting a their table
    She hit the dance floor, began dancing erotically thinking about him and what she'd like him to do to her. She saw him watching her, his eyes ablaze wanting to shag her right there on the dance floor.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All of them.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would like to read more of Christina Lauren's books on this level of writing. I've downloaded the Beautiful Bastard to begin another love story of two of the characters from the Beautiful Strangers.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrators were fabulous and brought both characters to life including the surrounding characters.

    I really enjoyed this one. Despite the many sex scenes it is really a love story well done. The performances are great. Well worth the credit.
