The New York Times best-selling author of Beautiful Bastard, Beautiful Stranger, and Beautiful Player starts a brand new story of friends, love, and lust with Book One of the Wild Seasons series.
One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like him.
But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation - and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out - Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume - her sweet, filthy fling - to France for the summer and just…play.
When feelings begin to develop behind the provocative roles they take on, and their temporary masquerade adventures begin to feel real, Mia will have to decide if she belongs in the life she left because it was all wrong, or in the strange new one that seems worlds away.

Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Sweet Filthy Boy is the first in "Wild Seasons" series and focuses on a young french layer with very diverse group of friends from various parts of the world, and then there is this recent college grad who just wants to be herself and follow her own path. So you listen on and feel you know what is going to happen, and then BANG just when you thought that there was no way the romance could work, or you guess on the direction of the story, you get sidetracked by the funny parts and the very Sexy (fanning my face to cool it down) Dirty parts of this book...
After listening to Sweet Filthy Boy I had a strong desire to go to Las Vegas on a search for a Frenchmen of my own - His accent is such a turn on... This book exceeded my expectations by a billion miles. It was sweet, hot, adventurous, and it made my heart skip a beat - quite a few beats... Shayna Thibodeaux was the perfect narrator and hooked me right into the heart of this book!! I can't wait for book 2 in this fabulous new series - Dirty Rowdy Thing - and will be snapping it up as soon as Audible release it... :)
I don't write many reviews, but I just had to write a little blurb about Christina Lauren's newest book. Ansel twisted my heart in knots. He was sweet, charming, and playful. Mia had her insecurities, but thankfully wasn't a bore because of them. The storyline was engaging and the backdrop...well, it was Paris...c'est bon! The narrator made Ansel's voice believable, and even had Mia stumbling over the pronunciations, also believable. I was up until 3 am when I worked the next day just to hear the entire book without sleep interrupting the story. It was well worth it. If you haven't already been hooked by Christina Lauren's "Beautiful" series (as I am) go ahead and download this wonderful story. You'll likely want to hear everything she writes, and again...you won't be disappointed!
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
Awesome! I really like Christina Lauren books... but these audio versions... Boy! Some are great and some...well... are not... THIS ONE WAS GREAT! Dual Narration is sooo not needed... so please I hope the rest of this series keeps the same narrator!
Now... on to the review... Great story...of a Vegas wedding that actually seem pretty real when the wedding isn't annulled right away.... The (h) goes to live with the (H) in Paris France, on the spur of the moment...but that is where to real story begins... I loved the fact the (h) had issues with smexy time! Made her seem so real.
The ending... teardrops! So worth a credit or sale... Maybe not a buy...it's not a cheap book... But if this was like book 3 of the series...and the series is this good all the way through...then yes! it's a buy not matter how much it cost...
Narration was good. Nice shift in male and female voices...
Love Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Romance books.
This one is a great addition to the Christina Lauren books, funny and sexy and oh so very hot. I did not like it as well as her previous books, but I absolutely LOVED them, so you have to take that with a grain of salt. This book is still very enjoyable and very good, I was just not blown away, like I have been in the past. The story and some characters did not seem as developed as in past books and the ending was good, but did not provide all the resolution I wanted to see, not sure if more is coming in another book. Overall a highly enjoyable listen.
I really loved this book. I couldn't stop listening. It took a while to get used to the Narrator's style but I really enjoyed her portrayal. I would highly recommend this.
I have not read the print version, but the author and narrator had me smiling and laughing through the first half of the book!!
***Spoiler** When Mia awakens married.
When Ansel attends ballet class.
I loved the entertainment value of this book... I think its worth a buy .... save the credit for something more pricey.
This was once again a great... funny.. Smart and romantic read!! I thought the narrator did a great job! Her ability with the French language was impressive!!! I can't wait for the next book!!
Will do anything for books!
Okay, let me be honest, I have had this in my library since it came out and just decided after totally procrastinating to listen to it today. Right off the bat, the narration was great, Shayna Thibodeaux did a wonderful job with all the voice and her French was fantastic! Totally hooked!
The story was so much better than I expected, for some reason I thought it was going to be another "they got together, broke up, were a part for a long time, then at the end finally there is an HEA." Okay, it wasn't that! I think I've heard too many of those lately.
Christina Lauren do such a wonderful job with the humor, there were times I started just cracking up through this book, my kids looked at me like I was crazy, ear buds in and laughing to myself. The dialog was good, they had a great rapport and we got to see so much of them together. I did see the climax coming but that didn't stop it from breaking my heart! Mia and Ansel are both great and sweet people, so it was easy to love them both.
I gave a 5 star review because honestly, it was great. I have one regret; the end could have been longer. I want to know what happens next. I know the next book is about another couple who we meet in this book, so I hope that we will get more resolution in that one. It was by no means a cliffhanger, it was just a bit of a drop off.
Totally worth the credit or purchase, finished in one day and really didn't want to hit pause at any moment! Some books I have to put down and come back to at a later time, this was not like that at all. It will be a relisten for me!
Another awesome one from Christina Lauren. I loved this book...it was a sweet, but not too sugary sweet, love story that seemed believable. I thought the character development was great and I LOVED the narrator! I saw other reviews that were not happy with the narration and I have NO idea why...I though she was great with each character and I really felt as if I were listening to them speak. And I love Mia and Ansel!!
The book was filled with a good story line, humor, some steamy sex scenes...the whole package. Definitely worth a credit or just to buy outright!!
"My least favourite Christina Lauren book"
A different narrator and a more emotional & interesting story.
There was very little connection between the main characters Ansel and Mia. I was not buying this story, the way they met and the way their relationship played out.
By 50% i was asking where was the filthy boy, he was more sweet than filthy. The characters from Christina's other books are more filthy.
I found the narrator's voice to be annoying. Too many pauses. The narration did not flow.
Big disappointment. I really wanted to read this new series.
Despite my disappointment in this book, i will try future Christina Lauren books
