Product Description


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?

I love all of Christina Lauren's books, adore them actually, So I really struggled giving this less than a glow review & 3 stars but I was so frustrated with the Main character Niall and his inner voice which was just so pent up English that I spent most of the book yelling at him to get on with it. The first half is far better but I just really felt he didn't deserve her. Ruby is fabulous and Im really glad she stands up for herself but I still have finished reading it feeling annoyed rather than the usual which is to re-read past books in the series. Nice to see the boys again, but it only accentuates that Niall is no Max or Will who are simply divine and have the wittiest banter. The writing is excellent but this book lacks the humour and light and shade of their other books. If it were any other authors I'd give them 2 stars (especially at $10 - the current price) but it's this dynamic duo who have given me so many laughs and great reads to date I am feeling generous.

I have been waiting ever so patiently for this book and I’m very grateful to receive an advance reviewer copy from Simon & Schuster Australia. So many women say that Fifty Shades got them either back to reading or reading a whole new genre. I have to say – it was Beautiful Bastard and the words of Christina Lauren that took me to a whole new level of reading. My copies of the series have been well worn due to being shared and they have gone on to purchase their own copies.
I have loved this series all the way through the novels and the novellas. Like, LOVED with all my heart. Someone asks me to read a book – this is the series I grab for to hand over. Even then, I say to them, but this is book one – you can’t just stop at the one – they are all unique and lovable. The characters within this book and how they interact is refreshingly real, they are witty, they are heartbreakingly gold and crass. I love how these stories have managed to connect readers across the globe. The adventures they have taken me on were like catching up with much cherished friends. I don’t think I have laughed so hard through any book that I did reading Beautiful Beginning.
Like all great series, there has the possibility of there being a dud. Thankfully, this is not that book, in fact, it’s probably my favourite of the series. Niall Stella has given my crush Max Bennett a run for his money. Niall is deliciously dreamy and naïve. He’s in stark contrast to the other men of the series who are overconfident when it comes to their prowess.
I love the sassiness of Ruby. She brash and a breath of fresh air for Niall, very much in keeping with all the women of the series. She’s rocking the three S’s – smart, successful and sexual. She has the ability to make him feel things he’s never felt.

Christina Lauren are an amazingly talented duo, their writing is effortless. The leading men will have you swooning and the heroines are all kickass.
Beautiful Bastard will draw you in.
Beautiful Stranger will have you swooning.
Beautiful Player will leave you needing to cool off.
Beautiful Secret will blow you away.

Sit tight because their is a new man who is going to knock your socks off, meet Niall Stella. Hello how can he not he is Max Stella’s brother!

“Niall Stella was a two-name go or, like Prince Harry or Jesus Christ.”

Ruby Miller is a 23 year old engendering intern and is head over heels for Niall Stella. Functioning when he is around leaves her flustered. She needs to pull herself together fast when she learns she is off to New York City with him to work on a project for four weeks. To say she is excited is an understatement, all she needs to do is to try and keep her self together.

Niall Stella *sigh* is recently divorced. Having been with his ex for as long as he can remember their relationship has left him with doubts about love and relationships. When he leaves for NYC with Ruby, she opens his eyes to a new light of who he is and what he wants.

With both of them back in London, work, getting to know one another and an ex wife their new relationship doesn't come without drama.

Watching Niall find his way With his attraction and feelings for Ruby will have your heart melting. Ruby was a perfect match for Niall and she fit him perfectly. We found ourselves laughing out loud with some of her comments. We loved watching her bring An expressive side to Niall.

The Beautiful Bastard series continues to go from strength to strength, this series is one we would highly recommend.

Book 4 in the Beautiful Bastard Series (not including novellas). The story of Ruby Miller and Niall Stella, Maxâ(tm)s younger brother. (I really hope we get to meet all the Stella siblings.)
Niall has recently freed himself from a marriage lacking affection. Another relationship is nowhere near his radar.
It shocks him when he spots engineering intern, Ruby, eyeing him lasciviously across the conference table. Within days, they're flying across the Atlantic to spend a month attending conferences and working in New York.
Now that he sees Ruby, he finds the temptation of her nearness excruciating.
Niall is so buttoned up and locked inside his own head. His excessive loyalty and inexperience with relationships turn him into a bumbling fool.
Ruby is expressive, vibrant, intelligent and patient. She draws him out and pushes him to be better. It's a revelation for Niall, to be with someone who talks everything out.
Reading a Christina Lauren book is a visceral experience. I felt this even more so with Beautiful Secret. Probably because Niall and Ruby have so much of a struggle to get their HEA.
Every sentence paints a picture and drops you into the characters' world. Their trademark humour paired with a depth of heart makes for a killer combination. If I want to read a book again, immediately after I have finished it, I think it deserves 6 flares.
I bow down in the child pose at their feet. Sorry for gushing, but it is what it is - brilliant!
