The New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Bastard, Beautiful Stranger, and Beautiful Player starts a brand new story of friends, love, and lust with Book One of the Wild Seasons 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.
