Book Review: Beautiful Secret





Beautiful Secret (Beautiful Bastard #4)
by Christina Lauren


AN UPTIGHT BRITISH EXECUTIVE. AN ADVENTUROUS AMERICAN NEWBIE. A SEXY INTERNATIONAL SCANDAL IN THE MAKING.

New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling author Christina Lauren’s Beautiful and Wild Seasons series hook up in Beautiful Secret for an erotic intercontinental romp that celebrates the best of both worlds!

When Ruby Miller’s boss announces he’s sending her on an extended business trip to New York City, she’s shocked. As one of the best and brightest young engineers in London, she knows she’s professionally up to the task. The part that’s throwing her is where she’ll be spending a month up close and personal working alongside—and staying in a hotel with—Niall Stella, her firm’s top urban planning executive and The Hottest Man Alive. Despite her ongoing crush, Ruby is certain Niall barely knows she’s alive…until their flirty overnight flight makes him sit up and take notice.

Not one for letting loose and breaking rules, recently divorced Niall would describe himself as hopeless when it comes to women. But even he knows outgoing California-girl Ruby is a breath of fresh air. Once she makes it her mission to help the sexy Brit loosen his tie, there’s no turning back. Thousands of miles from London, it’s easy for the lovers to play pretend. But when the trip is over, will the relationship they’ve built up fall down?

TeriLyn's thoughts: The Beautiful Bastard series by Christina Lauren has given me endless reading pleasure. When I heard Max Stella's brother was getting a book I was so happy because Max is my favorite from the series. Little did I know how completely different the two brothers really are. In this series I've come to expect explosive passion and chemistry from the couple being together right from the start. In Beautiful Secret the chemistry and passion are ever present but the explosiveness wasn't, for me, and it didn't grab me quite as hard as with previous books. This story is more of a slow burn as Niall navigates his life post-divorce and figures out the emotions he's experiencing with the vivacious Ruby, who's character I loved. I haven't loved a heroine in this series more than hero until now. She's a perfect combination of sassy and sweet wrapped up in total honesty. I loved how she was NIall and with the rest of guys from the series. So even though it's my favorite of the series it's a great read as like always the book comprises the flawless writing of dynamic duo Christina Lauren. I really enjoyed reading it and hope we get more from this cast of characters soon.
