Book Review: Beautiful Stranger by Christina Lauren

Beautiful Stranger (Beautiful Bastard, #2)

(Beautiful Bastard, Book 2)


A charming British Playboy. A girl determined to finally live. And a secret liaison revealed in all too vivid color. Book two in the NYT Bestselling series. 

Escaping a cheating ex, finance whiz Sara Dillon's moved to New York City and is looking for excitement without a lot of strings attached. So meeting the irresistible, sexy Brit at a dance club should have meant nothing more than a night's fun. But the manner--and speed--with which he melts her inhibitions turns him from a one-time hookup and into her Beautiful Stranger.

The whole city knows Max Stella loves women, not that he's ever found one he particularly wants to keep around. Despite pulling in plenty with his Wall Street bad boy charm, it's not until Sara--and the wild photos she lets him take of her--that he starts wondering if there's someone for him outside of the bedroom.

Hooking up in places where anybody could catch them, the only thing scarier for Sara than getting caught in public is having Max get too close in private.



"No one here knows you're about to come all over my hand."

If you're in the mood for something steamy then this is the perfect book for you! 
Beautiful Stranger is sizzling HOT!

"I want you naked," I said, wasting no time and pulling down the front of her dress. "I want you naked and wet and begging me to fuck you." I moved to her breast, sucking, before I bit down on her nipple through the delicate lace of her bra. "I want you to be so loud that the people at the bus stop across the street know my name."

That right there is just a little preview.. hell.. you are in for a ride with Max Stella! He's smokin' hot, BRITISH, romantic, gentle yet rough in the best freaking way, a rich business man, alpha, and last but definitely not least... sex on a stick!!! 
So my question to you is, why haven't you read this book?

Max is just what Sara Dillon needs in her life.  We met Sara in Beautiful Bastard but obviously really got to know her here.  Moving to New York post a break up from her six years long relationship, she decides to spice up her life. Little did Sara know, Max would be the one doing all the spicing with a perfect balance between sex and romance! WIN!

"Good God Sara. I'd love to spread you on this table and have you for lunch."

"I think that's the most fun I've ever had," she whispered.  And I suspected I'd do almost anything to spend the rest of my life making this woman happy." 

"I love you Petal. I've known for a while now, but everything changed for me last night."

Wait till you read about that night!!! Even though it was HOT HOT HOT.. it went beyond just being sexual. I swear Max is just perfect!!! The things he does for Sara!!  

"When I say 'I love you' I don't mean that I love what being with you does for my career, or I love how often you're willing to shag. I mean I love you. I love making you laugh, and seeing how you react to things, and getting to know the little things about you. I love who I am with you, and I'm trusting you not to hurt me."


I really love books with dual POVs!! I'll never, ever tire of saying it!! You get the whole story!! So even though most of the quotes I shared here are from Max's point of view, we also get Sara's. There were times where I sort of wanted to slap her and get her to wake up and realize just how yummy Max is but there were more times where I related a lot to her. So it's safe to say I like Sara's character.  Very down to earth!

In general this is a very well written book. I kind of wanted something more (plot-wise) to happen through out the story because it's just basically Max and Sara having sex.. a lot... and everywhere.. but in my opinion, this is a book that gets better along the way. We even go a some angst towards the end. And angst is always good! 

The ending was totally Max and Sara!! Loved it!
