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 2 million reads on fanfiction sites—Beautiful Bastard has been extensively updated for re-release.
I enjoyed this book.
At first, I almost put it down, the first few chapters were basically full of hate sex and little else; there was very little story presented and I wasn't interested in reading a book that was 90% sex and 10% story.
Things started to pick up though and I was drawn in, I wanted to see how the relationship played out. I wanted to know what was going to happen next! We finally get into who the characters are and see some interaction other than spontaneous angry sex.
I like that this could be someones reality, it's not unrealistic. I'm not going to sit back and say, well that would never happen in real life...
Once I got to the end, I appreciated the way the book started. Because of it, you see the characters grow and you understand the relationship.
