Synopsis: 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.

Review: Beautiful Bastard is a steamy erotic romance filled with sass, snarky remarks and an endless amount of sexual tension. If you're looking for the next level of hot than this is your book. My first reaction to this book was "Whoa." I expected a gradual build up but things move along fairly quickly. I enjoyed Chloe's feisty attitude and the back and forth dialogue between her and Ryan. I also enjoyed the fact that the whole book is in two POVs. It spiced things up! Overall, I did feel the plot line was slightly buried underneath all of the "action," but I did enjoy the story and I definitely think readers will enjoy the playfulness of the overall novel.

Disclaimer: I've heard that this is fanfic for Twilight. Personally, I did not like Twilight, but I did enjoy this.
