Publisher's Summary

An ambitious intern. A perfectionist executive. And a whole lot of name calling. Discover the story that garnered more than two million reads online.

Whip-smart, hardworking, and on her way to an MBA, Chloe Mills has only one problem: her boss, Bennett Ryan. He’s exacting, blunt, inconsiderate - and completely irresistible. A beautiful bastard.

Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family’s massive media business. He never expected that the assistant who’d been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative - completely infuriating - creature he now has to see every day. Despite the rumors, he’s never been one for a workplace hookup. But Chloe’s so tempting he’s willing to bend the rules - or outright smash them - if it means he can have her. All over the office.

As their appetites for one another increase to a breaking point, Bennett and Chloe must decide exactly what they’re willing to lose in order to win each other. Originally only available online as The Office by tby789 - and garnering over two million reads on fan-fiction sites - Beautiful Bastard has been extensively updated for rerelease.

    "What a exciting HOT story !"
    Any additional comments?

    Christina Lauren is now one of my Favourite authors. This book was very well written with an interesting and exciting story. There's lot's of great sex that end's in love. Grace Grant does and excellent job as narrator. Wish there were more books out by Christina. :)

    "A male narrator for Bennett would have been better"

    I enjoyed the erotic, creative sex scenes. A male narrator for Bennett would have made it so much better.

    "Beautiful Beginning to a Series"

    The first book in this series has been so much fun, I can't wait to listen to the others. I seriously looked like a crazy woman laughing in the car all by myself listening to some of the scenes. From sexy to witty in sixty seconds flat, this book is a perfect indulgence for a contemporary romance reader.

    "Finally a Good One"

    I've been having some bad luck with "romance" novels lately. They're either simply erotica with a crappy storyline or New Adult and not enough steamy sex. I liked this one. Good mix.

    "Great book!"

    I enjoyed this book SO much. From start to finish it was captivating, funny, and endearing. I fell in love with the lead male. The only bad thing I can say and it's really not that bad is the narrator could've done a better job voicing the male characters. At times I wasn't sure until a few lines into the chapter if it was Chloe or Bennett talking. Lots of hot scenes. Definitely worth the purchase.

    "Entertaining"
    Would you be willing to try another book from Christina Lauren? Why or why not?

    Yes. Its's entertaining enough. I like how every chapter is switched between Chloe and Bennet's thoughts.
