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.

    After reading the Billionaire trilogy by Jessica Lemmon (which was fantastic!!), Beautiful Bastard was a disappointment. The continuous sexual scenarios left no room for any type of real story line. Lacked the humor, tenderness and sexual tension that makes a really good romantic read. Single narration became a little confusing as it was often hard to figure out who was talking.

  • Maria Loomis

    I truly enjoyed the story. The narration was hard to get past, however. The chapters switch first-person point-of-view, but the same female does both the male and female narration. Usually books with this format use two narrators, a female and a male. This wasn't the case and it was very distracting. I recommend this story to be read as a book, but not listened to via the audiobook format.
