I listened to "Beautiful Bastard" and enjoyed it immensely, so when "Beautiful Stranger" was released I downloaded immediately.
This novel was better...flat out better. Why, you ask...because the intimate encounters in this novel are not only steamy and delicious but OH SO CREATIVE! I don't mean to spoil the book for anyone so I cannot go into detail, but trust me when I say that scenes from this novel will get your wheels turning on how to spice up your own love life! I've literally never listened/read a novel that gave me sex like this and Bravo for that!
On a second note, I also believe this story was much more well thought out and planned then its predecessor and that is such a good thing to see, don't ya think? In "Beautiful Bastard" you are left to believe that these characters already really know one another, for the most part due to their work situation, but in "Beautiful Stranger" you really get to watch it all unfold before you and that is half of the fun!
And lastly, Cole's narration in his very realistic and very sexy british accent brings this audio to meet the highest of your expectations. He makes me want to check for other books narrated by him and just listen for the sake of listening despite its content!
As I finish up this review all it makes me want to do is start "Beautiful Stranger" from the beginning and experience it all over again...now that really says something.
This isn't just worth a credit...its worth your money...so download NOW!

I enjoyed Beautiful Bastard but definitely liked Beautiful Stranger more. Two strangers with a strong attraction. One playboy the other just had her heart broken. Sarah was hesitant to get into another relationship so she decides she only wants to have fun. This book had more of a plot than the first book. There was more character development and an interesting story. Max was living every mans dream but he realizes its not enough. He wants the girl. Overall, this book was delicious and I will continue with this author.

I will immediately purchase anything by Christina Lauren-no brainier, they are brilliant. Sexy, witty and smart, they are engaging, current and manage to bed both some of the hottest stuff I've ever read, and also completely heart warming. Characters you fall in love with. Completely. I am charmed by Max and want to be Sara's friend. The performances by the two voice actors are believable and I very much enjoyed them when they are in their own heads. However, the woman doing Sara? Worst British accent I have ever heard. And I'm from London. It is so jarring, every time she has a line of Max's it's so jarring it throws me out of the story entirely. Total bummer. The male actor I assume can't do an American accent and thus doesn't try. I wish she had done the same. It would have been far better than the weirdness that comes out every time she's trying to be a Brit. Sorry! Didn't ruin it entirely as the book is too good for that. But it is most disconcerting and uncomfortable to hear. At least to my ear...
