Publisher's Summary

Escaping a cheating ex, finance whiz Sara Dillon's moved to New York City and is looking for excitement and passion without a lot of strings attached. So meeting the irresistible, sexy Brit at a dance club should have meant nothing more than a night's fun. But the manner - and speed - with which he melts her inhibitions turns him from a one-time hookup into her Beautiful Stranger.
The whole city knows that Max Stella loves women, not that he's ever found one he particularly wants to keep around. Despite pulling in plenty with his Wall Street bad-boy charm, it's not until Sara - and the wild photos she lets him take of her - that he starts wondering if there's someone for him outside of the bedroom.
Hooking up in places where anybody could catch them, the only thing scarier for Sara than getting caught in public is having Max get too close in private.

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 that really says something.
This isn't just worth a credit...its worth your 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.
