5 StarsAn ambitious intern. A perfectionist executive. And a whole lot of name calling.
Whip-smart, hardworking, and on her way to an MBA, Chloe Mills has only one problem: her boss, Bennett Ryan. He’s exacting, blunt, inconsiderate—and completely irresistible. A Beautiful Bastard.
Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family’s massive media business. He never expected that the assistant who’d been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative—completely infuriating—creature he now has to see every day. Despite the rumors, he’s never been one for a workplace hookup. But Chloe’s so tempting he’s willing to bend the rules—or outright smash them—if it means he can have her. All over the office
As their appetites for one another increase to a breaking point, Bennett and Chloe must decide exactly what they’re willing to lose in order to win each other.
Originally only available online as The Office by tby789—and garnering over 2 million reads on fanfiction sites—Beautiful Bastard has been extensively updated for re-release.

My Thoughts; What is it about the Twilight Saga, a purely YA series, that has inspired such awesomely hot and steamy stories to be born? Is there a subliminal message? If we read it backwards will we see an extremely R rated version of itself? Whatever it is I am happy to read the results.
Beautiful Bastard is such an apt title. Bennett Ryan is the definition of asshat. He is rude, obnoxious, egotistical, arrogant and I am 100% head over heels in love with him. I spend the first part of the book saying, "What an ass!" every time he would speak. And then immediately saying, "Atta Girl!!" when Chloe would fire right back. She doesn't take the crap he is shoveling and I love it.
I am going to recommend this book to anyone who is in love with any or all of the following men; Christian Grey, Gideon Cross or Jesse Ward. You will love this one.
But watch your panties ladies...... Mr. Ryan is a hoarder. *winks*
