Title: Beautiful Bastard
Series: Beautiful Bastard, #1
Author: Christina Lauren
Rating: 4 Shooting Stars

An ambitious intern.
A perfectionist executive.
And a whole lot of name calling.

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. 

I didn't have a lot of hope for this book when I started reading it. I just wanted a book to pass the time, and I got a little bit more than expected. Now granted there are a lot of things about this book I thought I could do without but overall the book was very interesting, and I was constantly laughing so that made me like a whole lot more. So I'm going to say that the good out ways the bad in this instance, so I will give this book a higher rating for that. 

It starts out with Chloe Mills working for the "Beautiful Bastard" as she and her coworkers like to call him. He is an extreme jerk, especially to Chloe. And things start to change when he starts to show some interest in her. They both know crossing that line is dangerous because he is her boss, but neither one of them seem to be able to stop it. I loved the chemistry between them, and the fact that they could be so rude to each other and they actually liked it. It made for a very interesting story. But in the end, when Bennett starts to change, and admit more to Chloe. I love his attitude towards her, and how he starts to talk to her, it is really cool. Now some of the written got on my nerves, and the fact that they seemed to constantly going at it. I mean that was very frustrating, but other than that I really enjoyed the book, and I'm so glad I was able to read it.
