When Hanna Bergstrom receives a lecture from her overprotective brother about neglecting her social life and burying herself in grad school, she’s determined to tackle his implied assignment: get out, make friends, start dating. And who better to turn her into the sultry siren every man wants than her brother’s gorgeous best friend, Will Sumner, venture capitalist and unapologetic playboy?
Will takes risks for a living, but he’s skeptical about this challenge of Hanna’s…until the wild night his innocently seductive pupil tempts him into bed- and teaches him a thing or two about being with a woman he can’t forget. Now that Hanna’s discovered the power of her own sex appeal, it’s up to Will to prove he’s the only man she’ll ever need.
Christina Lauren did it yet again with the continuation of the Beautiful Bastard series. A person would think that by now the stories would start to sound similar but NO. I think Will put Bennett and Max to shame. Will makes me want to start running in hopes that I will find a man like him. This man is sex walking. Hanna had no chance in HELL when Will got his hand on her. There are so many waves in this story I almost got sea sickness. I love the fact that Will is open to all his sexual encounters to let them know that they are not the only woman sitting on his lap. You got to give his kudos for being upfront about his relationship status. I felt sorry for Hanna because she is so naive when it comes to Will. She has diarrhea of the mouth about everything but what matters. Hanna did put her good foot forward with trying to balance between work and play. Heck, if I had a Will to play with I would find a balance too!
We get a lot of time with Bennett, Chloe, Sara, and Max. While Bennett and Max got their rocks off by being a pain in the arse, Chloe and Sara really step up to help Will and Hanna. These chicks rock! I like how Sara was able to use her experience with her ex to show Will how not to be a dick. There is an O-M-Freaking-G moment in this book too. We all know that Bennett and Chloe are planning a wedding but one of these chicks is pregnant! All the banging these people do it shouldn't be a surprise.
Sebastian York is the bomb.com! This man could talk me naked. With sound of his voice and the descriptions we get of Will, I was able to make a nice picture of this man. Mr. York was able to move this book to a whole different level just with the sound of his voice. He can just say the alphabets for me and I would be happy. Grace Grant is awesome. She narrators most of the Beautiful Bastard books but with each Ms Grant is able to give the characters their own identity. Job well done chickpea.
