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.
“I want you to watch. And tomorrow when you're sore, I want you to remember who did it to you.”
Okay, wow. I definitely did not expect to love this book because of all of the negative nancies out there, but BEAUTIFUL BASTARD was just the book I needed. Now this book was full of sex scenes one after another, and most don't like that, and sometimes I don't even like that, but there was just something about this book that rubbed me in all of the right places.
“Totally serious. I want to be the only guy who fucks you against windows, and also the first person you see in the morning-from where you lie, having stolen my pillow. I'd also like to be the person who gets you lime Popsicles when you've had bad sushi. We only have a few months left where it's potentially complicated.”
BEAUTIFUL BASTARD was a typical office affair. There is Bennett Ryan the asshole boss and Chloe Mills, the intelligent and capable intern who collide with each other and have really hot sex off and on and can't seem to stop and by the end of it all, fall for each other. Now this was definitely a guilty pleasure book for me, had everything I love in these types of books: lots of sex, public sex, hot alpha men, and dirty talking! HAWT! I loved it all!
"Oh, god, Bennett," she moaned. "Say something else."
Fuck. My girl got off on dirty talk.
Oooohhh! And I completely forgot to mention that this book is in both Bennett and Chole's POV! Yes! I love books in the guy's POV! But overall, I completely loved this book, the characters, the hot office affair and I cannot wait to read more from this amazing author! I have found a new favorite author! A new guilty pleasure author! See ya, now I'm onto Beautiful Stranger!
