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.
A fun and raunchy office romance with two strong-willed protagonists. It is a quick and fun story with obvious cringe-worthy moments through the story. If you’re looking for a light-hearted New Adult romance that you don’t have to take too seriously, you might enjoy Beautiful Bastard.
I liked that the side characters were a part of the story and added to the motivations of the characters. There were funny moments and there were serious moments. It was a light and cute romantic read.
Overall, this is not a serious book, but an entertaining and funny office romance book that I enjoyed for what it was. I found Chloe’s character endearing and take charge, a real spit-fire.
Keep Calm and Read On,
