Beautiful Stranger: Beautiful Bastard #2 by Christina Lauren

And I dive into one of my favorites in the Beautiful Bastard series by Christina Lauren.  The first book in the series was good, but it was this book that got me hooked.

Beautiful Stranger

Chloe and Bennett may have been the ones that started the series, but it is so fun to have them in the background while Max and Sara take the lead in Beautiful Stranger.

Max and Sara try their best to have a unique relationship that reflects their personalities. One that is well outside the box. Sexiness, hilarity and a bit of drama all make an appearance in Beautiful Stranger.

The result is a touching story with the only cliché moment being their well-deserved happily ever after!


“What’s going on?” I asked, gauging her expression. “Talk to me.”

She leaned into me again. “Don’t want to talk.”

“Sara, I don’t mind being your distraction but at least be honest with me about it. Something’s wrong.”

“I’m fine.” But she wasn’t fine. She wouldn’t have come here if she were.

“Bullshit. You’re breaking your own rules by even being here. This is better -this is real- but it’s also different and I want to know why.”

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 and 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.
