Review: Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren

Beautiful Bastard
by Christina Lauren
Release Date: February 12th 2013 by Gallery Books
Series: Beautiful Bastard #1
Pages: 320
View/Purchase: Goodreads, Amazon, B&N 

An ambitious intern. A perfectionist executive. And a whole lot of name calling. 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.

My Review:

I don't really have a lot to say about this book, although Beautiful Bastard is quite an interesting book, there were a lot of times when I found myself lost in the story. The plot definitely has potential to be a good book though. As I was reading, I found myself intrigued with the relationship between Bennett and Chloe. (love and hate relationship) It is a roller coaster ride for their relationship since the beginning, and since they have to work together, there is always tension between them that soon enough it starts to spark passion between them. They have a passionate romance that leads them into trouble. As a result, they had to learn to cope with the challenges that they faced within their families and work. I really wish there was more story to the plot, it all seemed so rushed. Overall, the story was good, the ending was my favorite part. It was nice to see them happy.
