Book Review- Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren- Wowwy... Wow... Wow!!!

Shut the front door!!!! I am stunned, at a loss for words, and full out giddy over Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren!!! This book is easily 5 out of 5 stars!!! I devoured this book in one day!! Totally consumed me, took over my day, and I loved every second of it!

Chloe is an intern at a family made media business. She is a hard working, smart mouthed, intelligent young lady. She is appreciated by all of the Ryan men that she has worked for... That is until Bennett Ryan shows up to take on a major role... Her boss!! Mr. Ryan, as he requires his staff to refer to him as, is a sleek, cold hearted, all business man and is known as Beautiful Bastard. Chloe doesn't know if she wants to jump his bones or commit a crime when he walks into the room. Add those two personalities together and WHAM.. You have a pretty explosive combination!

"My mind flooded with white-hot images of my fist connecting with his throat. It took every bit of control I had not to jump across the table and strangle him. A smug smile crept over his face."

I myself went back and forth between feeling an all out hate and then total awe for Mr. Ryan and the inner battle he was constantly waging. Did he continue on with his ice king facade or did he examine what the feelings he had for Chloe actually meant. One second I wanted to jump in the book and punch him in the throat, and the next I wanted to be the one whose hair he wrapped around his fist and pummeled into the wall.... In a completely hot, steamy, take my breath away way!! 

Punch in the throat man: “I appreciate that you got me coffee when you made your own, Miss Mills, but if I’d wanted mud to drink I would have scooped my mug through the garden soil this morning.” “If you insist on pounding your keyboard as if you’re hammering gophers back home, Miss Mills, I’d appreciate it if you kept the door joining our offices closed.” “Is there a good reason it’s taking you forever to take the contract drafts to legal? Does daydreaming about farm boys take up all your time?"
Please take me against the wall man: I was starting to see that this wasn’t just sex, and it wasn’t just working something out of my system. Sex was just the fastest route to the deeper possession I needed. I was falling in love with her, and falling too fast and hard to easily find any footing."

Beautiful Bastard is a quick, steamy, sex filled read that makes you want to personally injure and heal Bennett Ryan all at the same time! I could not put this book down and I hope there is some kind of sequel to this book. If not, it is an amazing stand alone book as well!! Definitely deserves the highest rating... 5 solid stars!!!

Blurb: 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 789—and garnering over 2 million reads on fanfiction sites—Beautiful Bastard has been extensively updated for re-release.
