Review of Beautiful Bastard 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.


Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren is a steamy read that will have readers fanning themselves after finishing this book. I thought the relationship between Chloe and Bennett was done perfectly and I was pleased with how the book ended. I liked both Chloe and Bennett equally and felt that they played off each other beautifully. I absolutely loved the fact that Chloe wasn't afraid to stand up for herself.
