review: Beautiful Bastard BY Christina Lauren

Beautiful Bastard (Beautiful Bastard, #1)Beautiful Bastard ~ Christina Lauren
4 of 5 stars

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 two million reads on fan fiction sites—Beautiful Bastard has been extensively updated for re-release.

My thoughts =
This was wicked hot from the get-go. No prolonged waiting for the intense stuff to happen – it happened and it was AWESOME!!

I really enjoyed both of the characters in this book. Chloe was pretty cool and Bennett was great. I loved the fact that they hated each other at the beginning. It was hilarious and enthralling to see these two come together. Their “encounters” are steamy and wonderfully written.

I think the pair did an excellent job writing together and congratulations to them for taking fanfiction to publication!! Great book – can't wait to read the next!!
