Description

An ambitious intern. A perfectionist executive. And a whole lot of name calling. Discover the story that garnered more than two million reads online.

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 rerelease.

Panty Ripping Good Time

I picked up this book on the recommendation from people that I follow on the Audible site. I am glad I downloaded it. It is a unexpected sexual romp that develops between two people who are very driven get on each others nerves and know they shouldnt cross that line when it comes to inter office romance. It is a fun love/hate relationship with a lot of confusion when it comes to feelings, careers, and the struggle of what's right and wrong. When it comes down to that animal urge they just say "F-it" and let it fly. I like how you hear from each characters point of view. I always want to know what the guy is thinking. Lots of humor which I like and very likeable people. It is worth the credit and I will look for this author in the future.

Evesdropping on Wife's Girl Group Book

Any additional comments?

My wife ordered this book so she a several other nurses (all women) could listen to it during a long drive they made to a medical convention. So... I figured I'd see what the ladies were so interested in and loaded it on my MP3. Holy-up-against-the-office-window and up with the skirt girl! This book proves guys are just too stupid to really understand all that women are. The plot and story were so-so, but I gave it an overall 4 stars because I actually sported wood several times during the narrative, and that alone is worth 2 stars. It's a wonder my wife and her colleagues didn't crash the car on the way to San Francisco.

Story underdeveloped

I might be a little, over the top, but when I am searching for a new book or series, as I prefer, to listen to, I actually do reaearch. I search different Web sites, read both amature and professional reviews and deliberate. This series came up on several independent articles, so I bought book one. Maybe there are readers/listeners that prefer short, concise stories where the story is comfortably predictable; but I do not.

This story was touted as one of the most popular erotica novels, of recent years. It was supposed to be a deep romance, but I disagree. It contained some erotica and romance but deep, it was not.

Maybe authors like Kristen Ashley, Diana Gabledon and Jodi Malpus have ruined me, but this novel is too short and the characters are seriously underdeveloped. It is somewhat entertaining and I find I want to know Max and Sarah's story (the next novel in the series) but I know the novel will leave me wanting.

I guess what I am trying to say is that if I were to make one statement about, "Beautiful Bastard" and the follow up novella, "Beautiful Bitch", combined, it would be that they are a good outline for a potentially powerful novel.

HHHOOOOOOOOOOTTTTTT!

WOW! This is definitely an EROTIC book. It starts out hot and heavy and never backs down. At times I didn't get all the "Hate Sex" or why these two had to have sex in the work place (really? they weren't worried about getting caught). Despite the complaints and the light plot I still enjoyed this book. I knew what I was getting into from the start and just enjoyed the ride.

Lots of sex, very little character development

Well, if you want a story that is 70% sex and very little dialogue, this is the book for you. I think up until the airplane scene they barely exchanged more than 2 sentences to each other. He hated her and she hated him based on their lack of interaction over the course of 9 months, then they can't look at each other without screwing like rabbits.

At first I could not see any chemistry between them, did not really get the panties fetiche at all. The end was quite cheesy and reminded me a bit of the beginning of Tamed.

Okay, but not spectacular.

The narrator was good at doing the voices. I just felt like the sex was literally nonstop. The male was so mean, and the female couldn't control her desires. Plus, the career paranoia and obsession got old. I guess it just felt like too many extremes for a very long time, and then a happy ending that came and went in ten words or less.

Is it wrong to want more "story"?

There were some funny lines, and certainly gasp-worthy moments (the good kind), and the steamy scenes did not disappoint. I liked that the writing of those scenes was not cringe-worthy, but almost realistic. The only downside was that there was such a lack of substance to the story line. I know you're not buying these books for their big complex plots, but perhaps I am looking more for something that tells a story, with romance sprinkled in. This was the typical sex scene book, with a plot sprinkled in.

annoyed I spent my credit on this

Struggled to finish this. I'm not a picky listener either, I'll listen to just about anything with an open mind but I had a hard time believing the love story here. I didn't feel that there were enough vulnerable moments to develop the kind of relationship they developed so quickly. the characters seemed really superficial.

Where is the plot?

This is has to be the worst book I've listen to this year. Beautiful Bastard is a book full of panty ripping with average sex scenes and the words "beautiful bastard" being said every other sentence. This book is not for readers who want good sex scenes with a interesting storyline.

Narrated porn

Overall it wasn't that bad. But I think it lacked plot. I wast just angry sex and then "oh I love you".

Well that's a sexy one!

Auf welchen Platz würden Sie Beautiful Bastard auf Ihrer Hörbuch-Bestenliste setzen?

I truly love this book and already heard the whole series more than one time.
The characters are convincing and smokin' hot.
The first book about Chloe and Bennett is a real great opening and also introduces the other characters.

The writing is fluent and Grace Grant does a great job reading.
I laugth a lot while hearing this book.

Thumbs up!
