“This flirting is all well and good, but I mean it when I tell you, I cant have you leaving me again. It almost broke me.”
My ribs seemed to squeeze all of the air out of my lungs at the thought. “I don’t think I could. I don’t want to be away from you again either.”
“But you need to give me a chance to fix things when I screw up. You know I’m an ass sometimes.”
Growling, he whispered, “And I tear lingerie.”
I pushed a curl off his forehead, “And hoard it. Don’t forget the creepy hoarding.”



When I first read Beautiful Bastard, I remember thinking that Bennett was such a cold bastard and Chloe was an ambitious bitch. I re-read the book and I finally enjoyed it enough to rate it five red hearts.

I saw on Goodreads that a lot of people had negative things to say about the book. I don’t understand why they had a lot of bad things to say. This book became popular at the heels of that series that started the fame of the Erotic Romance genre.

Let’s face it, while ER has been around for what seems like forever, it never really gained popularity until Christian Grey gave new intensity and meaning to sex. That’s just unfortunate. I just feel like there are so many books that came before him that was so much better. This book is not one of those, however. BB just came out in 2013. However, I would pick this over FSOG any day.

Bennett Ryan and Chloe Mills gave explosive an epitome. They’d both be all over each other one minute and then fighting each other the next. I personally like a heroine who can stand her ground. Damsels in distress annoy me. I don’t like girls who need to be rescued. I don’t like men who need to be the only one wearing the fucking pants in the relationship.

This is probably why I really liked this book. Chloe is a strong woman who does not take any bullshit from Bennett. When he hurt her, she picked herself up and tried to make it on her own. I think that the kind of man Bennett is would have chewed up any other woman who didn’t have a strong character.

There were some cringe-worthy things in the book, but looking at the bigger picture, this was a great read that mirrored a lot of relationships these days. Bennett is not the prince charming, alpha male exec that are featured in most novels now. In fact, he is a bastard through and through, but he is a bastard who has fallen in love and has swallowed enough of his pride to run after the heroine.




“I wanted her in a way that made me feel like every second I was sated and starving.”

“I told you, I want more than this. I want to be with you. I want to be your lover.” I swore, digging my hands into my hair. “I’m falling for you, Chloe.”
