I’m a huge fan of the Beautiful Bastard series. I remember when Beautiful Stranger came out, I was reluctant to read it because I loved Beautiful Bastard so much, I was afraid it couldn’t possibly live up to it’s predecessor and worried it would somehow ruin the first one in some way for me. Boy was I wrong. I loved Beautiful Stranger just as much, if not more than Beautiful Bastard and Beautiful Player is no different.
Will Sumner. Oh, my dear, sweet, hotter-than-hell Will. What I wouldn’t give to be in Hanna’s shoes. Without the terrible nickname though. I might punch someone if they called me Ziggy.
Will is sexy, smart, athletic and funny. He’s dreamy. I loved getting to know him. Hanna is a breath of fresh air. It’s getting to the point that every heroine in every book is basically the same. Hanna is different. She’s inexperienced but she’s open about it and willing. She doesn’t shy away from situations, she just asks for guidance. She’s a bit of a nerd and it’s endearing.
Christina and Lauren are new authors but there is no doubt that they are very good at what they do. They are excellent at drawing you in, developing the characters so that you give a damn, writing steamy scenes, but also writing a story with meat in it. There are a lot of books out there. It’s not enough to just write cheesy porn. The scenes are all the same, the characters, the situations, the outcomes are all. the. same. These ladies know how it’s really done, and they do it well.
If you haven’t read the Beautiful Bastard series yet, you’re doing yourself a serious disservice. It’s intriguing, has heart, and it’s one of the hottest series I have ever read! Do yourself a favor, and one-click all of these now!
