Chloe Mills is intelligent, hardworking, moments away from her MBA and starting a successful career. The only thing standing in her way is her boss, Bennett Ryan. He's exacting, blunt, inconsiderate and...completely gorgeous - a beautiful bastard. She's determined to ignore him, do the best job she can, and move on to her bright future. Bennett has been trying to ignore his gorgeous, infuriating assistant for months. He's never been one for a workplace dalliance, especially not with one of his employees. But Chloe is so tempting he's willing to bend the rules - or smash them, if it means he can have her… all over the office. What starts as just a hot hate hook-up becomes something much deeper, as both Chloe and Bennett must confront exactly what they're willing to lose to find love with each other.

Together, they reworked the famous fanfiction, The Office, into the novel Beautiful Bastard.

    Different to what I was expecting but in a good way. Was even better than I thought it would be... could not put it down - had some extremely late nights because it was so good. I really wish I'd bought the next few in the series already...

    Comments about Beautiful Bastard:

    I was expecting a lot from this book, especially since the reviews are so good. However i just found there to be a lot of sex and hardly any plot. It was a good read, but lacked any kind of depth within the characters and the storyline. To put in perspective, within the 305 pages it contains, take out all the sex parts and theres about 80 pages of a plot with lack of depth.
    It was actually quite disappointing, ive also been finding this to be a problem with the rest of the series. As i did accidently read beautiful secret first, but i dont think i would pick up any more of this series.
    But hey if you're into this kind of stuff and looking for a quick read then yerh i would recommend it.

                It was a fast moving story line, no chance of getting bored. It keeps you very intrigued. The only con about this book it ended way to soon.

                  This book is not only erotic but funny in the females sense. She is not simpering girl but she knows exactly what she wants

                      ""Beautiful Bastard" is the perfect mix of passionate romance and naughty eroticism. I couldn't, and didn't, put it down until I'd read every last word."--Elena Raines, Twilightish

                      Separated by the pesky state of Nevada, these co-author besties talk several times a day, agree that Ruby Pumps is the best nail polish color ever, and would, if given the choice, spend all day staring at the ocean from the San Clemente pier.
