Publisher's Summary

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 two million reads on fan-fiction sites - Beautiful Bastard has been extensively updated for rerelease.

Panty Ripping Good Time

I picked up this book on the recommendation from people that I follow on the Audible site. I am glad I downloaded it. It is a unexpected sexual romp that develops between two people who are very driven get on each others nerves and know they shouldnt cross that line when it comes to inter office romance. It is a fun love/hate relationship with a lot of confusion when it comes to feelings, careers, and the struggle of what's right and wrong. When it comes down to that animal urge they just say "F-it" and let it fly. I like how you hear from each characters point of view. I always want to know what the guy is thinking. Lots of humor which I like and very likeable people. It is worth the credit and I will look for this author in the future.

Evesdropping on Wife's Girl Group Book

Any additional comments?

My wife ordered this book so she a several other nurses (all women) could listen to it during a long drive they made to a medical convention. So... I figured I'd see what the ladies were so interested in and loaded it on my MP3. Holy-up-against-the-office-window and up with the skirt girl! This book proves guys are just too stupid to really understand all that women are. The plot and story were so-so, but I gave it an overall 4 stars because I actually sported wood several times during the narrative, and that alone is worth 2 stars. It's a wonder my wife and her colleagues didn't crash the car on the way to San Francisco.

Beautiful Bastard - tall, gorgeous & entirely evil

In the wake of 50 Shades of Grey and its success, publishers have been scrambling to pick up previously self-published fan-fiction and novels, repackage it and sell it to wider audiences. And as judgmental as some book lovers have been on this, you can’t deny the success of EL James, Sylvia Day, Jamie McGuire, Kristen Ashley etc. Let's face it people, a good story is a good story no matter its origins. I am not a snob when it comes to books, if I like it - I like it and I really don’t care from ‘whence’ it came.
Beautiful Bastard is a one of those books I absolutely couldn’t read fast enough and the audio is no different. I screamed at my family to leave me alone, I hid in my room and ignored all else! I absolutely loved the sexual tension and banter back and forth between these two characters (Chloe & Bennet). I laughed a lot more than I expected, between the sniping back and forth and the pure situational humor, I was laughing out loud. And also I loved that this was a dual POV story. And its HOT! Scorchingly so..The narration is PERFECT! And the second books narration is even better! Let me add if you love this first book in the Beautiful Bastard Series then you’re in for a treat because they just get better as they go, I loved Sarah and Max’s story even more in no 2 -Beautiful Stranger. So YAY! A new series for me and I recommend you jump on this one with me and enjoy!
Cheers :)
