Beautiful Stranger (Beautiful Bastard #2) by Christina Lauren


Hey Everyone! How is everything going?? :)

Today I'll be reviewing Beautiful Stranger by Christina Lauren, which is the second book in the Beautiful Bastard Series!

From Goodreads:

A charming British Playboy. A girl determined to finally live. And a secret liaison revealed in all too vivid color. Book two in the NYT Bestselling series. 

Escaping a cheating ex, finance whiz Sara Dillon's moved to New York City and is looking for excitement 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 and into her Beautiful Stranger.The whole city knows 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.

My Thoughts:

Seriously? How is it that an author (or in this case TWO authors) can make a sequel to a great book, and it turns out to be an EVEN BETTER BOOK THAN THE FIRST??????

That is pretty much what happened to me as I read Beautiful Stranger! Christina and Lauren have once again created some kick-ass characters!  Steamy, hot, amazing, BRITISH!!!, and just overall a sexy read!

I mean seriously?!  Max is BRITISH!! Which means British accent, and let's admit it here...who doesn't get turned on by a British accent???

While Beautiful Bastard was about the relationship between a stubborn woman and her jackass of a boss, which turned into a super cute hot read all on its own; Beautiful Stranger gets together a normally playboy and a recently heart broken innocent-on-the-outside-but-secretly-running-wild-fantasies-through-her-head type of girl.

Max got pretty creative there, if you know what I mean ;). (Wink, wink LOL).

Overall rating:
This one is for the 18 and over crowd.  I would recommend to those of you who like these types of reads.  If you enjoyed Fifty Shades, then you'll most likely go for this one.  I prefer this series though.  It's well written, and while it also started off as Twilight fan-fiction, it first of all, came out even BEFORE Fifty, AND just gives almost a more relate-able vibe, when it comes to the characteristics of the characters.

Check it out!
You can download your copies either at Amazon or at Barnes and Noble! :)

Talk to you all later! :)
