Beautiful Stranger by Christina Lauren
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Women’s Fiction
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.
Beautiful Stranger is by far one of the best books I’ve read in 2013. I can’t help but emphasis on the fact that it is AMAZING. Well, mostly for the ladies or the overall hopeless romantics out there.
The book is written in two perspectives, Max Stella and Sara Dillons. Max Stella is filthy rich, he is also a popular womanizer with a killer British accent. Sara Dillon, on the other hand, is short, beautiful in her own way, and has only recently gotten out of a very long relationship with her fiance who cheated on her. Sara has pledged that she’ll focus on herself, she’ll have fun and do things she would never do when years ago and definitely not take men seriously ever again.
But then a one night stand changes everything. As much as I loved the passion in the book, the depth and the story behind both characters was what kept me reading.
To conclude, the women behind this book are brilliant writers and with brilliant writers come a huge hoard of fans who I have to thank so much for forcing them to write this sequel to the Beautiful Bastard book.
I can’t wait to read more from Christina and Lauren.
