An ambitious intern. A perfectionist executive. And a whole lot of name calling.
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.
Holy Heck! What did I just read? I haven't devoured a book as quickly as I did Beautiful Bastard in such a long time. It was like a breath of fresh air.
My heart sat in my throat from the very beginning, to the very end. It was racing with anticipation at the words before me. I can't believe I didn't read this book sooner. These authors really know how to captivate their audience from that first chapter. I honestly couldn't put it down.
Chloe and Bennett's story is one of angst, love and, hate all rolled into one. Their relationship began as hate and soon transforms into something they each totally don't expect. Oh and the sex is WOW! HOT! I loved it all and I can't wait to dive into the next book.
I've needed a book like this to awaken my reading passion again. It's certainly done that, I'm going to devour the rest of the series and I cannot wait! Thanks Christina and Lauren for writing such a wonderful story and pulling me into the pages and living with these characters.
