I have waited patiently since pre-ordering this in April and hence woke up at the crack of dawn to read it and Couldn't be happier (it was teary too) - it is the perfect ending to a fantastic series! 'Beautiful' is a delicious, dizzying, sexy, funny and poignant addition to this series.
Beautiful is the fifth full-length novel but it's actually the tenth book in the Beautiful Bastard Series. The previous novel each having a novella sequel. I have been following this series since the very beginning and it's one of my favourites of all-time. Christina Lauren never lets me down the writing is flawless, I am frequently laughing out loud and sexual chemistry is off the charts.
This is Jensen and Pippa's Story. If you have read the other books then you have met them before. Jensen is Hanna's brother and Pippa is Ruby's best friend. Pippa needs to get away from her cheating boyfriend and the job she hates. Three weeks with friends, good wine, and downtime is exactly what the doctor orders. What she didn't expect was to meet an uptight lawyer that looks hot in his neatly creased slacks on her plane headed to Chicago. Jensen on the other hand was relieved when the plane touched-down so he could get away from the woman next to him who maybe beautiful and seemed like fun but was a bit crazy...! He was ready to get home, order take-out and catch up with Netflix. When he got there he wasn't too shocked when his sister lectured him about his social life. He was a work-alcoholic that hadn't been on a vacation in years. And now...he was going on a two week wine tour. Hanna is very convincing! Then the unexpected happened. She showed up...Pippa.
Jensen was reserved, put-together, and thought before he spoke. Pippa on the other hand didn't have a filter, wild, and a hot mess. (I really adored her!) She was hilarious. But they found a balance. They were attracted to each other and agreed to have a holiday fling. And the next two weeks are full of craziness, sex-comas, and finding out they are not so different. On top of this awesome sexy Romance this booked topped it all with a Fabulous reunion where we get to catch up with ALL of the couples and our favourite characters AND there were epilogues for each of them!! (Even George!!) 10 Stars!! For book 10!
