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.

    Story
    "Hot, Hot, Hot!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Beautiful Stranger to be better than the print version?

    I loved the narration, especially Jonathan Cole's narration of Max Stella. As much as I enjoy reading print books as well, the story would not be the same without the sexy growl of Max's voice.


    Any additional comments?

    The narration was great, loved the story line, which was different, and really enjoyed the development of the characters and the continuation of the series.

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

    I would recommend the whole series. They are sexy and fun. Dynamic personalities, strong women and super sexy men.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Max, who wouldn't love tall, good looking, sweet talking Brit?


    What does Grace Grant and Jonathan R. Cole bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The two voices work well together. Of course, loved Jonathan's accent, made Max come to life and made him even sexier.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The whole public sex in a club was a little shocking at first, but it worked well for the two of them.

    Story
    "Bold Beautiful Brit Bares Body and Soul"
    If you could sum up Beautiful Stranger in three words, what would they be?

    Exhibitionism Bares Love


    What did you like best about this story?

    Max Stella was so doggone lovable. Scandalous and witty a great friend and the consummate lover.


    Have you listened to any of Grace Grant and Jonathan R. Cole ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This story line was better than Beautiful Bastard, which got a little one dimensional.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A Beautiful Stranger is waiting for you to show your true self.

    Story
    "A Chance Encounter"

    I love love love this book. I always think the second book will be a disappointment and not live up to the first copy, the sophomore slump. Oh no, not this book. This book was delicious, sexy, funny and worth the read. I instantly fell in love with the complexity that is Sarah and Max. Sarah wanting to get back her youth realizing she wasted it on a man that didn’t appreciation her and Max, wanting to know the mystery behind Sarah. Christian Lauren got it right again. Just sit back and fall in love with this book, it’s unbelievable.

    "Porno"

    Just an excuse to sell porno. No story, just one explicit scene following another.

    Story
    "Oh how I love this couple!"
    What made the experience of listening to Beautiful Stranger the most enjoyable?

    The humor in the dialogue, the narrators and the story line. This could be my favorite of this series.


    What other book might you compare Beautiful Stranger to and why?

    All the books in this series. You get to know this wonderful group of friends and want to share their experiences.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved all the scenes where Hannah was asking Will questions. Direct and naive, Hahna was so much fun.


    Any additional comments?

    This series is my favorite. I would recommend all the books. They are fun, sweet and super sexy!

    Great book - hooks you from the beginning and does not disappoint throughout. Can't help but fall in love with both leads. Hope to see more of these two!

    What made the experience of listening to Beautiful Stranger the most enjoyable?

    The dual point of view makes for a good time. It's so nice to see Max's POV.


    Which character – as performed by Grace Grant and Jonathan R. Cole – was your favorite?

    Oh Max Stella... You are a delightful piece of British hunk. He's tasty and funny.

    "highly recommendable"

    This novel its a highlight in its genre: Credible characters and for an erotic novel a fairly profound plot. And the two narrators did an excellent job!
