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.

Great writing, funny and truly entertaining. Not everybody can handle the English accents, but here, they are the icing on a very tasty cake. Remarkable sequel to BB. Well worth the credit.

I was so afraid to listen to this book! I LOVE BB and listened to it several times! I was afraid that the second book wouldn't any where as good as the first, but I was wrong! I think this was even better than the first! Both of the narrators did a great job.
I wanted more of the Chloe and Bennett story, but am so glad that this was Sarah's story. I love the books that tell the story from both sides. Even though you hear Maxx's side I didn't see him totally until the last 5 mins of the book, which was probably the point :).
If you read Beautiful Bastard, you MUST read this one! If you haven't read Beautiful Bastard, go buy it right now and then come back and buy this one! Worth your credit!!
I bought this because I really liked the first book in the series, beautiful bastard. I liked BB for all the sexy scenes, and decent story. this book is more story and less sexy scenes. don't get me wrong, there are quite a few sex scenes, but they weren't quite as frequent or as explicit as the first. There's more romance back story here. The story is decent, but I'm more an erotica fan than a romance reader.
also, the same person narrarates this as does the first. This was a little odd at first because Chloe and Bennett are characters in this book, so the voice that I knew as being Chloe's now belongs to someone else and refers to Chloe in the third person. That was my only complaint regarding the choice of narrator, which I got over quickly.
overall, good book with a fair amount of sex, but I'm not sure I'll get the third unless it's classified erotica.
Both male and female voices. Loved the accent.
Sarah. She new what she wanted and didn't want and stuck to it.
Absolutely! Great voices.
I listened to this book straight through! I actually had fun listening to it. The dual narration added to the enjoyment of this one. It is definitely worth the credit, and I highly recommend it if you like sex with a story.
All the characters are well developed. The plot is compelling. The sexy parts are very hot!
The emotional sensual physicality of the couple when they realize they are in love.
I haven't heard Grace and Jonathan's other performances.
I have read hundreds of erotic romances...this is the best! I wish there were more novels like the "Beautiful Stranger".

This book was a pleasure to listen to. I'm not sure if it should be considered part 2 to beautiful bastard because it definitely stands alone. The characters had depth and this book has good humor, not the lol kind, but the kind that gives you a genuine chuckle or smile. The scenes are definitely hot and ladies it has the awww factor. But the key to a good audiobook is the narrator. This is the first book I've listened to with 2 and they did an excellent job. The brittish accents were well done, but I think Mr. Cole had trouble turning it off... Also, these narrators didn't sound like they were trying too hard. I can't stand a book when the narrator tries to sound too sexy or sauve- irks the hell outta me! Please listen to this book, it's worth it.
One of the better ones! I couldn't stop listening! I put sleep timer after sleep timer on!
When they finally realize the love eachother. sheesh.
I liked Max better!
I didn't exactly like the first book in this series so it took me a while to come around and get this one! But I am soooo glad I did! 5 STARS!
I have listened to it 3 times so far. I love the story and I think that Grace Grant and Jonathan Cole did a great job. I loved the first one when it was just Grace Grant but I like the fact that in this book there was a male and a female.
I would not really compare this to another book beside the first one in the series.
I would have to say the opening club scene.
I did listen to this in one sitting. I could not stop.
EXCELLENT book. Enticing, exciting, and a real enjoyment to spend time in the authors characters lives.
