THE ROMANTIC TIMES BOOK OF THE YEAR that Sylvia Day called “a sexy, sweet treasure of a story. I loved every word.”
When three besties meet three hot guys in Vegas anything can—and does—happen. Book One of the New York Times bestselling Wild Seasons series from the author of the Beautiful Bastard series.
One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like him.
But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation—and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out—Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume—her sweet, filthy fling—to France for the summer and just...play.
When feelings begin to develop behind the provocative roles they take on, and their temporary masquerade adventures begin to feel real, Mia will have to decide if she belongs in the life she left because it was all wrong, or in the strange new one that seems worlds away.

Comments about Sweet Filthy Boy:
When setting out for a weekend in Las Vegas to celebrate their graduation from college, Mia, Harlow and Lola never thought they would be waking up in Vegas - MARRIED!
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas - except when Mia's new husband Ansel offers her the opportunity of a lifetime. A summer in Paris where the two can get to know each other a little better and Mia can work out what she really wants in life. Is it business school in Boston or is there something more exciting out there for her?
If I hadn't know that Christina Lauren is the pen name of two best friends and writing partners I never would have guessed this book had more than one author. It is such a fun and well written read. Mia is one of those characters I liked from the start. She's practical and works hard - nothing in her life has landed in her lap but she has had her dreams ripped out from under her and had to start all over again. It may sound silly but I was proud of her when she took a leap and did something so uncharacteristically impulsive.
As for Ansel? Not sure I've used this term before but Ansel Guillaume is the consummate book boyfriend. Sexy (with an accent to match), loyal, smart and romantic, Ansel may come across as stereotypical. But he's so much more than that. He's full of humour and personality with his own insecurities and his own life before Mia came along. He makes time for her as much as he could but he's not perfect and makes mistakes but that just made me want to read about his and Mia's relationship more.
Overall, I adored this book. The premise might seem a little cliched but it works fantastically and the writing is lovely. The romance is sweet but a little filthy at times and by the end I just wanted more! I'm very happy to see the next book in the Wild Seasons series, Dirty Rowdy Thing, will be released in November as I can't get enough of the characters introduced in this book.

The Rock Stars of Romance "Sweet Filthy Boy had my heart pounding from cover to cover and reminded me of first loves and being young. A must-read!" Fangirlish "No one is doing hot contemporary romance like Christina Lauren. Sweet Filthy Boy is beyond swoon worthy. Just give me Book Two right now." Bookalicious "Lauren's snappy dialogue, amusing banter, and dual first-person perspectives (with alternating chapters told from London's and Luke's points of view) keep the emotions high, close, and intense. A hyper-sexy sophisticated romance that perfectly captures the hunger, thrill, and doubt of young, modern love." Kirkus Reviews on Wicked Sexy Liar "Full of expertly drawn characters who will grab your heart and never let go, humor that will have you howling, and off-the-charts, toe-curling chemistry, Dark Wild Night is absolutely unforgettable.
