An ambitious intern. A perfectionist executive. And a whole lot of name calling. Discover the story that garnered more than two million reads online.

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 two million reads on fan fiction sites—Beautiful Bastard has been extensively updated for re-release.

Oh. My. God. This book was so completely awesome. Amazing, steamy romance, hot sex scenes, strong female character and a beautiful bastard as a boss who will make your heart beat faster than ever. I loved every second of it!

Chloe. This woman is just amazing. I wish I was like that when it comes to relationships, or really, to just stand up for yourself. She was completely incredible and determinate not to be pushed around. She stood up for herself, and I admired her so much. 

Bennett. Well, from the title you would imagine he is such a bastard and all, but to me, he really wasn't. It may be, because the book is written in dual pov, so you actually get to know what he thinks and feels and that made him so much more likeable. He was honest, direct and incredibly hot. Everything he did made me droll all over myself. Wish he was real ;)

The only thing that I missed in this book is that the side characters weren't really invested in the story. Everything was about Bennett and Chloe - which I liked a lot - but I still wanted to know more about the side characters. It was like - they were there - you'd thought something will revolve around them - but then, they just disappeared from the story. 

Beautiful bastard is a fast paced book, filled with amazingly written romance, deep and strong main characters. The hot scenes are fantastic. So, if you're looking for an awesome romance book, Beautiful bastard is the perfect book for you!

I'm sure this used to be a Twilight Fanfic. I think it was called something else though, and Bella just called Edward "Beautiful Bastard". I think it's amazing to see how many of them have come out now. Wallbanger by Alice Clayton used to be fanfic too, called "Edward Wallbanger"
