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.

    "Great story, fantastic narration!"

    Really love all the books by these authors, they make me laugh out loud, cringe for the characters and get hot and bothered ;). Grace grant does a fantastic job narrating this book and others by same authors, makes the characters come to life.

    Story
    "Sexy, Funny and Hot"

    I thought it was a fun book to listen to, it is one of the books I will listen to again. I liked Cleo she is a very smart, hard working, responsible girl who has crazy chemistry with her boss. She thinks she does not like; but can't get enough of him. As the journey goes on the walls fall and we see they truly understand and enjoy each other.

    I like the way Cleo would not compromise when she thought Ben is not giving her the respect she deserved.

    Ben is truly a "beautiful bastard" but at the of the day he has a good heart and falls for Cleo.

    "Interesting book, a little cheesy"

    This book was a good read, but it was cheesy. And I think reading it would've been better than audible.

    "Click purchase now please!"

    I've recommended this book & series to ALL of my girlfriends. It's been unanimous that this is a game changer in the romance genera. The story is fresh, funny & addictive. If you listen to this and don't get hooked on it & obsessed with it I'd be extremely surprised. Worth the credit or the money all day long. Click purchase, pour a glass of wine, enjoy & then tell your friends so you can all talk about it together! Christina & Lauren are brilliant writers that create strong, inspiring women in their stories. I can't thank them enough for sharing it all with everyone.

    Story
    "Good"

    This was a good story. There was a lot of sex which I felt was good and bad. This sex was, yes, hit. However, I felt at times the author over did it. She should have invested more time in building the relationship between the two characters. I also felt it was weird that Chloe and Bennett called each other Ms. Mills and Mr. Ryan after they had been having sex for a while. They even thought of each other as Mr. Ryan & Ms. Mills most of the story. I felt like that took away from the building of their relationship. Why did they fall in love? Was it sex or respect for each other? I almost, as I write this review, want to change my rating to 3 stars because the writer spend a lot of time on them having sex when it seemed as a couple they could have been a powerhouse in business and as lovers. I wanted to see what Henry pointed out that they were just alike. Could they have worked on an account together that the reader saw which could help build their relationship and she how powerful they could be in love and business?

    Story
    "Listening at work I visualized every moment"
    Where does Beautiful Bastard rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It ranks pretty high- I loved the story line


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course Mr. Bennett- phew what a MAN!!!


    Have you listened to any of Grace Grant’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't and I did enjoy her reading but I would had loved for Mr. Bennett to have been voiced by a male voice. It would had added the extra touch.
