Title: Beautiful Stranger
Series: Beautiful Bastard, #2
Author: Christina Lauren
Rating: 4 Shooting Stars

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 starts with Sara moving to New York to get away from her ex fiance, and a life she just didn't want anymore. She and her friends go out to a club one night, and she meets a beautiful stranger and they end up getting a little hot and heavy in the club. But Sara wants it to be a one time thing, with no names, no commitments so she walks away with out a back ward glance. Sara continues to think about this stranger over time, and runs in to him more often than she likes. They start to form a sort of "relationship" but Sara is very admit about being seen in public. And Max is willing to give her everything she wants but he's starting to realize that it is more than just sex on the line for him. You get to see a beautiful relationship develop in this book. I loved reading this book, it was a lot of fun. The only down side is Sara really got on my nerves, and she did something really dumb in the end that really bugged me. But I think I liked this one a lot more than the first book in this series. I can't wait to read more.
