Picking up where Beautiful Bastard left off, Chloe Mills and Bennett Ryan continue their steamy, combative relationship.

Just when Chloe’s career starts to take off, Bennett wishes it would all slow down long enough to spend a wild night alone with his girlfriend. But after he refuses to take no for an answer, Chloe and Bennett find themselves with two plane tickets, one French Villa, and a surprising conversation that, predictably, leaves them wrestling under the covers.

Book Review:

The Beautiful Bastard Read-A-Thon continues. Okay, so this isn’t an “official thing” but I am plowing through all of the books so I can be caught up with this series. One of my goals this year was to finish series I started and read some series I’ve been wanting to read for a long time. The Beautiful Bastard series is a series I’ve been wanting to pick up and I’m glad I did!

I really enjoyed Beautiful Bastard a lot and was anxious to see what happened after the boardroom scene. Beautiful Bitch gives readers a look back at what happened directly after book one and a glimpse at how Chloe and Bennett are doing about a year later. As to be expected Chloe and Bennett are married to their work, yet still committed to each other.

One of the things I really like about Bennett is how sweet he is to Chloe. Before I started this series, I was sort of expecting this domineering, asshole boss. He was an asshole (sometimes) but he also had a soft side. There was one moment that was so freaking cute that it made me grin from ear to ear. Chloe and Bennett have a code word they use whenever there is a work emergency. Bennett misses her so much so he uses the code word just to get her to his office so he could see her. How adorable is that, huh?

The conflict in this book was the fact that they’re both so busy getting the New York location of Ryan Media Group ready to launch as well as manage their own accounts. I found myself skimming through most of this novella just because not much was happening.

Anyway, I thought this novella was okay. I still find the whole panty-ripping thing to be completely ridiculous. I think one of two panty-ripping incidents would have been fine by me, but seriously, Bennett, every time…really? It’s not necessary. I guarantee you, dude, you could get to Pleasuretown without ruining Chloe’s knickers every.single.time.
