Publisher's Summary

F--k Prince Charming. Sometimes, you need a Magnificent Bastard.
Face it, ladies: love sucks and then you cry while your ex rides off into the sunset banging your best friend.
But why let a break-up end in tears when it can end with sweet revenge? Enter Magnificent Bastard Consulting and me, chief executive bastard. I've got it all - looks, brains, a heart of gold, and the killer instinct guaran-damn-teed to make your ex regret the day he said goodbye.
With the help of my virtual assistant, I've built an empire giving broken-hearted women the vengeance they deserve, while keeping myself far from the front lines of the heart. Life is a bowl of cherries, until my virtual assistant shows up on my real doorstep for the first time, begging for a Magnificent Bastard intervention of her own.
Damn. She's a bona fide sex kitten.
I pride myself on being a true pro, but pretending to be her lover soon leads to giving it to her good, hard, fast, and up against the wall. And somewhere between getting balls deep in my sweet and sexy assistant and watching her ex beg for a second chance, I break every last one of my damn rules - professional and personal.
So what's my next move? Fight for the girl who makes me want to get up on a white horse and ride to her rescue, or stay a Magnificent Bastard to the end?

This is my first audiobook review. I have enjoyed this book. Thank you Lili Valente for this story was amazing. I love the characters Penny and Bash. There was comedy, romance and a little bit of suspense. I loved the way the story flowed. Bash is a charming very sexy man who helps women get revenge on ex lovers thru his company called Magnificent Bastard Consulting. Penny is a woman who is shy and had some self esteem issues when her old boyfriend leaves her for her mother. Her and Bash have an excellent work relationship even though they have never really meet except thru text and email. Bash helps Penny by going with her to her mother's wedding where she is the made of honor but doesn't want to be there. How does this story end? Will Bash be able to help Penny? Do they get a HEA? Don't want to give anything away because you really should read this wonderful book 5 stars

What an inspired idea - an Agency created for recently dumped women to exact their revenge on their ex's by being seen in the arms of a drool-worthy Adonis who is expertly pretending to worship and adore you. And your revenge is always very sweet because Sebastian (aka Bash) your date and the Agency's CEO, is kind, understanding, supportive, thoughtful, encouraging, good at his job.... and is oh so hot.

Bash knows he's good looking and what effect he has on women (and even some men!) but he will never mess around or sleep with his clients... just touching, kissing and lots of worship in front of the men who'd wronged these lovely women. His virtual Assistant Penny has been working for him for two years and they communicate via email, texts and phone calls. Although Bash has suggested it, they've never actually met... until the day she decides to hire his services. And the effect she has on him was instant - he tried to keep their relationship professional - but the more he talked, touched and pretended.. the more he was drawn to Penny's looks, body, character and charm. Penny wasn't immune to Bash's charms either and it wasn't long before she was actually forgetting about revenge on her ex (who was about to get married)... but what happened on the day of the wedding made her run.

This was such a joy to listen to - both main characters were so likeable, their connection had witty flirty banter, chemistry and sexy times and, although Bash was attracted from the start, it took time for their relationship to develop. And during that time there was hunger, humor, yearning, denial, dirty talk and dreams. Penny was wounded, sad and insecure but she was in good hands with Bash. Told from Bash's POV except 1 chapter and the narrator did a great job and did the female voices well.

Worth a credit? Yes, a heartwarming addictive story of revenge and love. Move over Prince Charming coz I want a Magnificent Bastard.
