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.

    "LOVED the narrator!"

    If you read Beautiful Bastard (book 1), you have heard of Sara Dillon and Max Stella. Sara is Chloe’s friend and Max is Bennett’s friend. Not surprising that this would be the next book in the series.

    In Beautiful Bastard we found out that Sara was going through some issues with her long time boyfriend and things were NOT going well for her. Beautiful Stranger starts out with Sara’s decision to have a fresh start at life. We find out what catapulted this change and continue to get more background as to what happened with her and the ex. Sara is a smart woman but naive when it comes to her ex fiancee. As she starts this new journey of hers, Sara begins to unleash a total sex vixen that she didn’t realize she’s been suppressing all her life.

    Max was your typical big time millionaire business man bachelor. The best part, he’s not from New York. He’s British. If you love a man with an accent? Look no further. This hottie will NOT disappoint. There were many English sayings within this book that made Max seem more authentic in my eyes.

    Sara’s need to start over allowed her to just go all out. She get to try things that she’s always dreamed or fantasized about. Max was ALL TOO willing to oblige her every whim. As in all romances the explosive sexual encounters turned into more and more until they just couldn’t get enough of each other.

    Although I enjoyed this book, the characters, the narrators and of course the steamy sex scenes, I have to say that I loved Bennett just a little bit more. It’s that dirty talk that gets me every time.

    Narrator note: Firstly Grace Grant it quickly moving to the top of my favorite narrator list. Her accents are great and she’s able to deliver quick jabs and sarcasm right on. Her male characters are even, dare I say SEXY!

    Jonathan R Cole….well hello! This is my first time hearing his narration. I don’t know if he actually is British or not but DAMN his accent sounds PERFECT to me!! He made Max sound so unbelievably sexy and I loved every second of his narration. He reminds me of like a Gerard Butler. *swoon*

    "Effing Beautiful Book"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I loved the story. This book made me laugh out loud at work and I fast came to love Bennett the main male character. Also, the sex is good too


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

    Anytime Bennett said something, he was very funny.


    Any additional comments?

    Needs a mans voice in some parts it was hard to tell if it was Chloe talking or Bennett but the book was still great.

Bennett is full of ideas to please Sara and I was also please, There were great powpows that you can refer to as the mirror powpow, the library powpow, and etc.. LOL. Oh did I forget to say that he is a Britt? JRC did a great job. Once again GG did her thang. So worth a credit and Happy Listening!

    "Fantastic British male narrating voice"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Beautiful Stranger to be better than the print version?

    I don't know. Maybe.


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

    The end in the closet.


    What about Grace Grant and Jonathan R. Cole ’s performance did you like?

    British male narrator cooing erotica in my ears for hours is the best!
    The female narrator was great too but hey, preferances are preferances.


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

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Really happy with this one

    "Couldn't put this one down"
    Any additional comments?

    This is one of the best books I've listened to in a while. I really could not put it down. The story really drew me in from the beginning. I did not listen to the first book in the series but you really don't have to in order to follow along. It is worth using a credit on. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

    "I am a sucker for a man with an accent......."

    Who is this Jonathan Cole and where can I find one of him????? The book was okay....to me not as good as "Beautiful Bastard" but okay. What added an extra kick to this book was Jonathan Cole and his accent that seemed to comfort me every time he spoke.....Heck if I know what he was saying, but good grief man his voice was sexy as all heck. I would be VERY disappointed if his accent is not real!!! I would listen to the book again, but I would be lying if I said it was for the plot! I wonder if there is a narration where the talented Mr. Cole does nothing but talk....no reading, just talking :) That would definitely make my day!!!

    "Runs a close second to Beautiful Bastard..."

    I think, because it is number two of the series. I love Max. He is such a caring character and loves Sarah so much. Great love story.

    "Super Sexy Male Narrator"
    What made the experience of listening to Beautiful Stranger the most enjoyable?

    This book is a standout among the many I've listened to. One of my favs. I love that there are two narrators though you should know that the female narrator still does a male voice for her chapters, The narrators don't really interact, just go back and forth based on the view point of the chapter.


    What about Grace Grant and Jonathan R. Cole ’s performance did you like?

    It was a great paring. I wish Jonathan Cole has other books he narrated.


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

    you bet
