Book: Beautiful Bastard
Series: Beautiful Bastard #1
Author: Christina Lauren
Review: Chloe Mills is ambitious, smart, hardworking and trying to finish her MBA. She loves every aspect of her job except for her boss, Bennett Ryan. Bennett is rude, arrogant and likes to bark orders. When an after hours presentation goes from professional to sexy, Chloe has to decide what to do with her Beautiful Bastard.
This is my first Christina Lauren book and wow! Light, fun, sexy with witty dialogue. I loved this book. Told in alternating narratives, we learn how Chloe and Bennett both see each other. She Thinks: he's a super hot asshole. He thinks: she wears sexy shoes just to tease him and she's kind of a bitch. Seeing them go from professionals (boss/intern) to inappropriate work relationship (sexy times at the office) to falling in love (I love you but we work together) was an adventure. Chloe's apprehensions about being in a relationship with her boss and the possible career ramifications rang true for anyone in that situation and I liked how everything was resolved toward the end.
Grade: 5 stars
