Bachelor party.
Three hot men in Sin City out to give the Beautiful Bastard a send off before he gets tied to his Beautiful Bitch.
Copious amount of sex ensues.

You don’t have to worry if you haven’t read Beautiful Bastard. I don’t think you will get lost in this little novella even if you’re not too familiar with the characters. All you need to know is that there will be great amount of sex involve; Β also that you’ll probably get suckered into buying the full-lenght novels. I was too much of a weakling to resist because this writing duo knows how to bait potential unsuspecting readers. Those who perhaps, has a weakness for mindless fun, gorgeous men, and explicit sex.

Honestly? I wanted to read these because I just finished reading a very long, very exhausting novel, and I was looking to read something light. Well, I ended up downloading the novellas and the third full-length title. Β Well done, Christina Lauren. Well done.

My favourite couple in this series has always been Max and Sara. If you must know, I have a weakness for tall, built guys because I’m a shortie, myself. As superficial as that may sound, it is what it is. Max and Sara is like your middle finger and your pinkie finger. Also, he’s a Brit. Another weakness of mine. Ultimately, it’s why I will read any novellas written with them as the featured couple.

In this installment, we find them with a precious little bundle. Of course being new parents, they’re going through the same challenges new parents face: trying to find the time to be intimate again. You must also know that this couple likes to er, put on a show. So imagine how awkward that may seem to new parents alike.

This thing is also pure sex, and an introduction to Max’s brother, Niall. Incidentally, the next book is about him, which I’ll more than likely download as well.

You will get what you pay for with both books. If you’re looking for mindless fun, then this series is exactly that.Β 


  • These must be pretty good if after reading them you wanted to read the full length novel! I am not going to say this is for me – I don’t read erotica – but those who do will surely like these, I think.

  • Huh. I’ve always kind of wondered if these were good! If I ever do give them a try, I’ve got my expectations set. πŸ™‚

  • I never read Beautiful Bastard because I don’t know if I’d like the guy in it, but these serve as a perfect teaser for the series. Great to hear that you enjoyed the novellas and they contain lots of sexy times!

  • Mindless books are the stuff I read once in a blue moon. I only seek it out when the mood strikes. Thanks for highlighting these books, Joy!

  • Great review as always Joy! I didn’t know there was a novella for Max and Sara. I love this series and would definitely read Beautiful Beloved ASAP πŸ™‚

  • I definitely love my mindless fun books after a really difficult read as well, I find I enjoy them a lot more when I read them in that order. Oh maan, I’m a shortie as well and I like my tall men. And who can pass up a man with a British accent? *swoon*

  • Just no for me

  • I’ve heard about this series. The books sound fun! I’ll have them in mind then when in need of an easy read to relax, My co-blogger loves them, glad you did too.

  • Awesome reviews Joy. <3 I think.. I read part of the Twilight fanfic before. But yeah, that has been years ago, lol (A) I'm not sure these would be for me, but maybe πŸ˜€ One day. <3 They do seem kind of awesome πŸ˜‰ Glad you enjoyed them sweetie. Thank you for sharing. <3

  • Beautiful Bastard is a series I have eyeballing forever! “Those who perhaps, has a weakness for mindless fun, gorgeous men, and explicit sex.” Ahem … Um, yes please! I’m glad these are such a great escape, and we all need that right?!! I’m going to have to hunt down book one πŸ™‚
    Great review!

  • Novellas can be so hit or miss but for the most part it sounds like these were okay reads. I have yet to try this series but I have heard some great things about it.
    Great reviews!

  • Oh I’ve not heard of this series before Joy, but I do like picking up some fun read in between all the deeper contemps that I have been reading, so I shall keep an eye out for these. Also its funny that you have a weakness for Brits, mine is usually Canadians or Americans πŸ˜‰ Do you want to swap countries for a while? πŸ˜‰

  • Max and Sara are my favorite of the series! I’ve read most of the Beautiful Bastard books but I haven’t read the latest one. Though the first book was too much for me, the sex felt too forced but the next books worked out well. πŸ˜€ Great reviews, Joy! πŸ™‚

  • They sound ok. I haven’t tried this series yet but I keep hearing about it so maybe one day. thanks for the reviews
