REVIEW~ Beautiful Bastard, Beautiful Bitch, Beautiful Stranger, Beautiful Bombshell, Beautiful Player by Christina Lauren

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.

Originally only available online as The Office by tby789--and garnering over 2 million reads on fanfiction sites--Beautiful Bastard has been extensively updated for re-release.

Just when Chloe’s career starts to take off, Bennett wishes it would all slow down long enough to spend a wild night alone with his girlfriend. But after he refuses to take no for an answer, Chloe and Bennett find themselves with two plane tickets, one French Villa, and a surprising conversation that, predictably, leaves them wrestling under the covers.
Escaping a cheating ex, finance whiz Sara Dillon’s moved to New York City and is looking for excitement and passion without a lot of strings attached. So meeting the irresistible, sexy Brit at a dance club should have meant nothing more than a night’s fun. But the manner—and speed—with which he melts her inhibitions turns him from a one-time hookup and into her Beautiful Stranger.

The whole city knows that Max Stella loves women, not that he’s ever found one he particularly wants to keep around. Despite pulling in plenty with his Wall Street bad boy charm, it’s not until Sara—and the wild photos she lets him take of her—that he starts wondering if there’s someone for him outside of the bedroom.

Hooking up in places where anybody could catch them, the only thing scarier for Sara than getting caught in public is having Max get too close in private.
When Max, Henry, and Will steal Bennett away for a weekend of shenanigans and strippers in Vegas, the first stop of the night doesn’t go at all as planned. With their scheme for a Guys Weekend completely derailed anyway, Max and Bennett begin to play a wild game of stealth and secrecy in order to have their bombshells all over Sin City.
A bombshell bookworm. A chronic Casanova. And a lesson in chemistry too scandalous for school.

When Hanna Bergstrom receives a lecture from her overprotective brother about neglecting her social life and burying herself in grad school, she’s determined to tackle his implied assignment: get out, make friends, start dating. And who better to turn her into the sultry siren every man wants than her brother’s gorgeous best friend, Will Sumner, venture capitalist and unapologetic playboy?

Will takes risks for a living, but he’s skeptical about this challenge of Hanna’s…until the wild night his innocently seductive pupil tempts him into bed- and teaches him a thing or two about being with a woman he can’t forget. Now that Hanna’s discovered the power of her own sex appeal, it’s up to Will to prove he’s the only man she’ll ever need.
Wanna read and embrace your wild side at the same time? Then you need to pick up The Beautiful Series by Christina Lauren. When I began reading, I had no clue these books were fan fiction based on the Twilight Series by Stephanie Meyer. Completely different-- everything, lol!! The top being, a sultry adult read that'll have you dropping your underwear! These books were intense and smoldering.

I read this series back to back, leaving one short story left for me to eventually pick up (Beautiful Beginning #3.5). I was utterly obsessed with the beautifulness behind the pages. When I say that these books gave me the pants-- not as in slacks--as in breaths, I am not lying! My husband was one happy fellow, lol!! But I mean, when you sit and think about it (not read about it), sadly they're not really realistic, lol. I'm sure a very small percentage of the events in this book actually physically take place. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to be in that small percentage. Because it definitely reads so good! (Excuse me if I sound perv-- but that's why these books are written.)

The writing in this series has the right amount of charm with fascinating intimate scenes. While the banging came quick, the interaction, forthcoming connections and intimacy between the characters were quite desirable. Each character featured vulnerability and had the right amount of snark. Of course there was love and hate, and no intention on actual relationships. Another words, fear to love meets unexpected love. But good sex can lead to places that weren't intended.

The possessiveness in this series was raw and unfiltered- naughtily becoming and leaves you hungry to read the next book. Overall, the men were so sexy. And mostly, the women were independent. The passiveness and aggressiveness behind these characters and each of their stories collided into a blissful, erotic romance that will have your heart soaring and your thighs clenching!

I loved me some Will and Hanna from Beautiful Player (book 3). While I enjoyed all the characters, they were my favorite. Her innocence and inquisitiveness fascinated me. And how he handled it, was amazing.

The erotica in these novels were exhilarating and ferocious and desperate and naughty. Don't be surprised if you break out a sweat while you read. If you want erotica to jump out at you, this series puts the jump in jack. The Beautiful Series, books 1-3 were all intriguing and good for the naughty side of an adult woman's soul. Pick them up now!
