One beautiful bastard of a groom. The most beautiful bitch of a bride. A panty-ripping office hook-up turned true love everlasting.
Wedding bells can’t chime soon enough for Chloe Mills and Bennett Ryan. Chloe, exasperated and stressed by all the last-minute to-dos, is on the verge of saying “I do” to eloping. For his part, Bennett’s so worried about being distracted by Chloe’s body that he makes a no-sex-until-the-wedding-night rule that only seems to be making things worse by continually backfiring on him. As their crazy families descend for the big day- only a few of them actually trying to be helpful- the fiery lovers are about to test whether the couple that argues together can keep it together long enough to exchange rings, and not just heated words.
About the Author
Christina and Lauren, a writing duo that has been swooning over romance novels for as long as they can remember, are the authors of Beautiful Stranger and Beautiful Bastard from Gallery Books. Separated by the pesky state of Nevada, these co-author besties speak 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.

Comments about Beautiful Beginning:
Ok ****spoiler alert**** 1) this is the final in the Beautiful series and 2) this is novella size eg. around 200pages. BUT YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED IF YOU ENJOYED THE OTHER BB RANGE OF BOOKS!!!!
Its come to Chloe & Bennett's wedding - I laughed, I cried, I cheered and at the end just sighed - well written, great characters. Christina Lauren fill our the peripheral characters in the series bringing us up to date with their hijinks but ultimately the power, madness and grip loving that special someone has on a person.
Comments about Beautiful Beginning:
Brilliantly written this book picks up on the kidnapping of erotica writer Nora Sutherlin. Ms Reisz brilliantly weaves her magic with a band of loveable and fallible characters who we get to glimpse a good bit into their pasts in order to deal with the present situation of Nora's kidnap. Interesting and unexpected end which had a different tone to the rest of Reisz's writing.
