An ambitious intern. A perfectionist executive. And a whole lot of name calling. Discover the story that garnered more than two million reads online.

Whip-smart, hardworking, and on her way to an MBA, Chloe Mills has only one problem: her boss, Bennett Ryan. He’s exacting, blunt, inconsiderate—and completely irresistible. A Beautiful Bastard.

Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family’s massive media business. He never expected that the assistant who’d been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative - completely infuriating - creature he now has to see every day. Despite the rumors, he’s never been one for a workplace hookup. But Chloe’s so tempting he’s willing to bend the rules - or outright smash them - if it means he can have her. All over the office

As their appetites for one another increase to a breaking point, Bennett and Chloe must decide exactly what they’re willing to lose in order to win each other.

Originally only available online as The Office by tby789 - and garnering over 2 million reads on fanfiction sites Beautiful Bastard has been extensively updated for re-release.

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...

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.

      Well written, engaging characters. A slightly different take on the usual love story. Would recommend to friends. And I will be reading the rest of the series.
