Editorial Reviews

Editors Select, October 2016 - I was heartbroken to hear that my favorite romance series - Beautiful Bastard ("BB") by writing duo Christina Lauren - was coming to an end. Beautiful, the tenth and final book, features Jensen and Pippa, who, for better or worse, have both been shaped by breakups. After meeting on a plane, the two unexpectedly find themselves coupled off on a New England wine trip with some BB fan-favorite characters. Beautiful is the most relatable BB novel - it's easy to find yourself in Pippa's proclivity to embarrass herself and Jensen's work-related neuroses. Loyal fans are rewarded with sweet vignettes at the end of the novel from each couple in the series, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we haven't seen the last of them. —Katie, Audible Editor

Publisher's Summary

The 10th work in the New York Times and number-one internationally best-selling series that started with Beautiful Bastard.

A new couple finds love, and the casts of the previous books join in to celebrate this series finale in the most Beautiful way possible.

5 WELL DESERVED STARS!

I hate to see this series end, but this was great finale to one of my all time favorite series! Jensen's and Pippa's story was good, but I'll always love the trio of couples that are the mainstays of the series. I'd totally want to befriend these people and babysit their kids. Yet another winner for Christina Lauren. If you're new to the author, go get this entire series TODAY!

It Is Time To End It

The primary story in this last book of the series was kind of sad and depressing. It started off fairly strong with the flight from London to Boston. This scene had echos of some of the more embarrassing vignettes in Beautiful Bastard. But Pippa and Jensen seemed to have built a relationship on nothing more than convenience and proximity. So when those two factors were removed, it didn't seem believable that they would really miss each other, enough to fly back across the ocean to try and build a more permanent relationship.

What made this book worth reading was the fact that it brought back all of the characters from earlier books and gave them all a great send-off. Especially Chloe and Bennet. In those two characters, Lauren created rivals for some of the best fictional couples of all time. Pretty sure they would be the parents from hell, but it would never be boring. I will miss them, but it is time for the series to end.

I just didn't connect

I am a die hard fan of Christina Lauren and though I liked this book, the characters didn't have the intense chemistry I saw in stranger, player and secret. It was ok and Im truly sad to see the series end.

Solid Story

Any additional comments?

This was a solid story. Worth a credit. It wasn't the best of the Christina Lauren books but if you read the other books in the series there's no way you should miss this one. It has all the previous characters and that alone makes it a treat. The issue is the narration. Sebastian York is perfection as usual. He was meant to narrate this book series. The issue was Grace Grant doing a British accent. Horrible, terrible, annoying. I don't understand why they didn't just have someone who was British do this narration. Grace Grant is perfect and delightful for all the other characters she's narrated in this series, just not this one.

Loved, loved, loved!!

The collage of characters uniting for this finale sealed the series perfectly. The narrators were all fantastic! JC&JY only narrated their epilogue. GG & SY narrated Pippa & Jensen. Free spirited Pippa & workaholic Jensen were opposites who met on an airplane. Things get crazy fun after this unexpected meeting. Absolutely worth the credit!

A Beautiful End

This book was the ending worth waiting for. Not only did we see Jensen and Pippa's love story we also had insight into the other charters. This well worth the credit.

IT'S OVER.. AND IT'S BEEN A BEAUTIFUL RIDE

The 5th and final primary book in the Beautiful series by Christina Lauren was everything I'd hoped it would be.. and so so much more too. A good solid romance with all the right feels and then perfect Epilogues that included ALL of the previous couples as they all bask and unite in their individual and joint HEA's. Dual POV's and just look at the lineup of great narrators.

Over the span of time Christina Lauren has given me a loveable group of characters whose love stories have enthralled and entertained me as they've each fumbled then found their way to their soul mate.. and to the happy ever afters a romance lover craves. So, thank you Christina for the wonderful stories, the swoon-worthy Heroes, the feisty Heroines, the chills, the thrills, the passion and the sweet sweet Epilogues.

Worth a credit? YES - but if you've been a fan of the series then you already know this.

A little disappointing

I was so looking forward to this Beautiful Bastard finale, and I've got to say I was slightly disappointed. I've read and enjoyed all the previous books in the series immensely, but I just couldn't seem to gel with Jensen and Pippa. The story is good, the writing excellent, but I didn't feel the love so to speak. They were opposites and we all know opposites attract, and it would appear the attraction was there, even the passion was there, there was just something missing between them, and I can't seem to put my finger on it. There were funny bits, seriously funny bits and sexy bits that kept the book alive for me. I was really rooting for their HEA, Jenson (Sebastian York)I loved, but Pippa (Grace Grant) wound me up for some unexplainable reason. I found I was more invested in hearing about all the other characters in the story rather than Pippa. I also loved the epilogues from the previous couples. For this reason I'm giving it four stars.

A beautiful story and The perfect epilogue

As with all the books in this series Jenson and Pippa's story was fun, laugh out loud funny, sexy, sad, heartbreaking and truly lovely ...
I'm heartbroken to see the end of this fabulous series 😔every character and every story deserved 5* but if I had to choose a couple and two characters who will remain with me then Bennett and Chloe would definitely win the top prize .. the beautiful bastard and the beautiful bitch ' just brilliant'. Grace Grant and Sebastian York were outstanding on this and many of the series !!! I can see that I'll be revisiting the series again soon .. thank you Christina Lauren 👏🏻👏🏻
