    5 Panty Soaking Stars!We’ve met the bastard.We’ve met the stranger.We’ve met the ladies that love them. But now it’s time. Time to meet Will, the Beautiful Player.These books just seem to get better and better, I thought I no one would ever beat the man that tore panties and hoarded them for his own perverted collection. But then came Max, a beautiful Brit with a fetish for fucking in public places and sexy photos. And now we have Will, the man that refuses to be tied down. The man that schedules his fucks into his calendar. But that is all about to change when he reunites with Hanna, little sister to his college friend.We’ve had a book and a novella to get to know Will a bit, and I can’t even begin to express how much I wanted him to have his own book after Beautiful Stranger and getting some more of his personality in Beautiful Bombshell. I knew this man was going to fall fast & hard once he found the right girl. He just never expected it to be Ziggy, the girl he met when she was twelve and he was nineteen. But Ziggy was Jensen’s little sister. Hanna is the twenty-four year old woman, his Plum.When Hanna is forced to leave the labs and become a social butterfly she is thrust into Will’s life. When Will takes her under his wings he had no idea that the lessons she wanted to learn were going to be exploring her sexual desires. Hanna is not a blushing virgin, but she has little experience. Who better than to teach her how to be sexually open, date and just have fun than the man that has made it an art form?These two never expected that a few flirty comments were going to ignite such a fire. But Hanna can’t seem to think of Will as anything other than the man that has no desire for a monogamous relationship and for Will… Well he just can’t seem to stop thinking about Hanna.Will was completely everything that I needed him to be. Although he went from scheduled fuck dates to wanting to settle down, he was already starting to feel bored of his normal routines, so there was no whiplash over his change of heart. He was seductive and completely knew his way around a woman’s body. Will was not just a man that was interested in getting off, he was a man that loved women and loved pleasing them. ”I think about having you spread over my face,” I said. “And taking you on the floor just inside my apartment because I can’t wait long enough to get us anywhere more comfortable. I don’t want to be with anyone else lately, and it means I spend an awful lot of time going for runs at random hours, or with my hand on my own dick wishing it was yours instead.”Hanna was a complete goof and was such a lovable character, even though she needed to get out of her own head most of the time. Her mix of desire and inexperience was the perfect storm for some pretty steamy scenes. Usually the foreplay scenes can be hot, but are just warming you up for the main event. But I have to say that the two hottest scenes in this book were never even made it to third base. Since Hanna was still learning, so much detail was placed into her experiencing every moment of what was going on. Describing it, learning how… it was off the charts hawt!”Will you come tonight?”He snickered, shaking his head as he looked down, stretching. It took me a beat to understand why he was laughing.“Ugh, pervert.” I groaned, shoving his shoulder.“You know what I mean. Will you come with me?” He looked up at the sound of me smacking my forehead.“Oh my God, that’s worse. Just text me if you’re interested in coming.”I winced, turning to walk down the trail towards my apartment building and basically wanting the trail to crack open and transport me to Narnia. “Forget it.”“I like it when you ask me to come!” he called after me. “I can’t wait to come tonight, Ziggy! Should I come around eight? Or do you want me to come around ten? Maybe I’ll come both times?”Christina Hobbs & Lauren Billings do a suburb job co-authoring another sizzling installment in the Beautiful series. These two write so well together that it flows so effortlessly, I could care less how they got their start in writing – I am just happy a pig in shit that they did. The humor that is contained in these pages is just as great as the naughty bits. Every single moment in this was absolutely delicious. Will was everything that I needed him to be and more. I know we are coming to an end soon of this series and these characters and I am going to be complete hot mess when that time comes. Each of these stories are filled with just the right combination of drama, sexual tension and chemistry, and Beautiful Player is a fantastic addition to the Beautiful Series. A complete must read for any fan of romance with a heavy dose of smut.

    *****FIVE STARS*****{BR with my Lovely Alice}I had heard from a few friends that this one was their favorite in the series. I didn't think it could be possible after meeting Max Stella in "Beautiful Stranger", because I have a major weakness for British men!! Holy Crap, I LOVED THIS BOOK HARD!!!!!!! I can't stop thinking about it. I fell absolutely head over heels in love with Mr Will Sumner. Get a load of that name!! Even the name is god damn SEXY AS HELL!!!!!I now understand why my lovely buddy reader, Alice, was reading this for the second time. I plan on reading this one many times over!! There are several types of themes I go "gaga" for in a story and one of them is when there is romance with the best friend of the heroine's older brother. I, unfortunately, am the oldest sibling but when I was younger I had always wished I had an older brother who would bring his hot friends over so that I could just drool all day over them. Hanna Bergstrom aka "Ziggy", is the lucky lady in this story. She has always carried a major torch for Will Sumner since she was 12 years old. Will was her brother Jensen's college roommate and he would come to visit and even spent the summer with them once, while he interned for her father. What a lucky girl!!!If you've read the previous book, you know that Will is a ladies man. A player. He has never had a serious relationship. However, he's not a douchebag about it either. Will is always upfront with the ladies and he treats them with respect. He's actually very charming. Hanna reaches out to Will one day after being lectured by her brother that she is not living her life. She's going to Grad school in NYC and spends all of her time working in the lab. She is a science geek. So Jensen tells her she should reach out to Will and have him help her to get out there and socialize.So we know that these two are going to have sparks flying between them and I could definitely feel them the moment they meet up in Central Park for a run. Will had never noticed Hanna/Ziggy before because she was seven years younger and at the time just a kid, but now he is noticing the 24 year old version of Hanna.I loved how Hanna was so innocent but very openly curious about the ways of sex. She has had sex before but definitely not with anyone who truly knew what they were doing, like Will. So Hanna asks Will to be her life coach. Show her the ways of dating casually and eventually she wants him to teach her all about sex as well!! They decide to have a sort of friends with benefits arrangement. MY GOD!! I loved every freaking sexy time scene between them. Our Will likes to get a little rough and damn did it make him even more delicious to me. I found myself having to take a few breaks to fan myself because these scenes were making me feel very much overheated!!Will falls for Hanna rather quickly but the two of them keep giving each other mixed signals although I mostly did think Will was making his feelings and desires pretty clear to Hanna, but she was rather clueless. She also knew he was the Player and had a huge fear of getting too attached to him because she didn't want her heart to get broken. I definitely wanted to shake her quite often. There were moments I wanted to do the same to Will but holy hell he would say the most amazing things to Hanna, that just had me swooning!!"Hanna. I don't know if I've ever wanted something more than I want you. I really don't think I have.""I think about just kissing you, for fucking hours. Do you know that kind of kissing? Where it's enough for so long you don't even think of doing anything else?"There is angst in this one and at times I was really dying! I was waiting for these two to stop being chicken shit and take a freaking chance on love!!! Sometimes the greatest things in life are worth the risk!! It just seemed like they were never going to be on the same page. They seemed to always be reading each other wrong.I was just sucked into this story and with every chapter that passed, I was falling so much more in love with it and with Will. Enough to even put him on my every growing Top Ten Fave Book Boyfriends list. I am quite sure that I have exceeded TEN by now!! He kept making me swoon and I did highlight many passages in the story. I just love this man and wish that he were real and we could have beautiful babies together!! LOLIt wasn't just a physical attraction between us. Of course I'd been attracted to women before. But there was something more with Hanna, some chemistry in our blood, something between us that snapped and crackled, that made me always want just a little more than I should take. She offered her friendship, I wanted her body. She offered her body, I wanted to hijack her thoughts. She offered her thoughts, I wanted her heart.Overall this was just PERFECTION to me. I want to thank my Beautiful Friend, Alice, for reading with me!We had a blast chatting about our Will!!Pick this series up if you haven't done so already!!Every woman needs to meet these men!!!

    4 ZIGGY STARS.Hello readers, welcome to 'Beautiful player' a story of falling in love, friends to more and I can't stop thinking about getting you into bed. Yes this author duo has released yet another sexy, romantic novel and I'm happy to say I'm left asking for more. Here are my 'Beautiful player' book thoughts ...What's it all about?Hanna Bergstrom is as studious and focused as a student can be, she loves her life and doesn't feel the need to delve into a social world around her when she has her books and brain to keep her company. But when her family start to lecture her about her lack of social life she takes a step into the unknown and contacts her old childhood crush her brother best friend and playboy, Will Sumner. Hanna believes there's no better candidate than Will to show her the skills she needs to start a fresh; start dating, making friends maybe fall in love? So when this quirky loveable heroine with no social filter comes up against the playboy with a big heart and even bigger sexual appetite who will end up teaching who when attraction gets thrown into the mix? 'Beautiful player' follows the story of Hanna and Will and finding themselves amongst the possibility of love.What did I love?This book delivered on the dialogue front, it was fresh, amusing and sexy. The banter, sexting and relationship between Hannah and Will was engaging, adorable and outright Hilarious. I fell right into love with this story right up until around the 55% ish mark then things got a little dubious for me but not to worry the last 15% or so really turned it back around and I left the book with a solid 4 star feeling. One of the most attractive elements of the book for me was the heroine, Hanna and her lack of Filtering. This characters honest conversations and shocking thoughts made this ordinary love story into a hilarious portrayal of a gorgeously addictive character, Hanna was utterly lovely I really connected with her quirky, original ways and I'm glad the authors created such a loveable heroine for the delectable Will. Now I'll confess right here that I love a playboy man whore and even though this type of character has been used by authors time and time again I can't help but fall for a character just like Will. His point of view although at times a little girly, was utterly attractive, I really fell for how he felt about Hanna and throughout the story his character consistency stood out for me. As for the plot it's a tried and tested method, there wasn't anything outstandingly original here but it was played out well the only problem I had with it is explained in my 'why not five'. But I love a friends to lovers plot and I love my romance to have a steamy factor to it and oh yes, this book delivers on the relationship front. The more intimate scenes were deliciously hot, there is no doubt here that these authors can write up a sex scene and there is plenty of them throughout this story. 'Beautiful player' delivers the sexy, brings home the sweet and kept me entertained throughout. I'm a fan of this series and I loved getting a sneaky peak back into the lives of former characters of the series. This series is a must click for me I just didn't have everything pointing to the five star feeling, and here's why ...Why not five?I don't know what went wrong here readers, i'm going to have to put this one down as a classic case of 'it's not you, it's me'. This book had everything working in its favour to be lined up as a predictable five star from Lisa but the book fell flat with its delivery of its drama, the conflict felt a little repetitive and instead of having the usual one off drama scene the book had the same issues circling around and around. 'Beautiful player had a gorgeous start, a dubious middle and a perfect ending. The in between bit was were things went south for me, the big 'misunderstanding' was confusing, two characters who up until this point had been honest to the very point of over sharing failed to communicate and I failed to relate to the drama and misunderstanding. but don't be misunderstood this story has enough for me to be left with a smile on my face, and any fans of this series will be delighted with these two 'cute as a button' characters. Final thoughts ...A gorgeous beginning, a not so happening misunderstanding and the perfect ending. A series that always delivers on the sexy and sweet don't miss out on Hanna and Will's story. Go grab it readers, enjoy ... Kisses.

    5 Player Stars. Hanna decided that she needed to be a little “sexier” and more confident in bed, so she asks for the help of Will, the biggest player and sexy guy she knows. They know each other since childhood and it seems to be the perfect plan. Just have sex, learn, go back o being friends.Will thought the same, until he realized that their “deal” isn’t working anymore. And how can they player convince the girl that he’s ready to stop the game and having something real? Wow, this book was an amazing surprise! Not only I really like both characters (yeah, I wanted to beat them at some moments, but overall, they were pretty good). This was without a doubt my favorite book of the series so far. So if you’re looking for a steamy, sweet, addictive and “friends-to-lovers” story, this is a great bet. Rating:5 Stars.

    4.5 Stars!Oh, Will Sumner, my Will Sumner. Where can I even meet someone like you?It's been a while since I've read Beautiful Stranger but the feels are still here so when Beautiful Player called my attention the other day, I didn't resist it because I know I'm in for fun, sexy times. The story begins when Hanna "Ziggy" Bergstrom turned to her childhood crush Will Sumner to ask for his 'guidance' on how to change her somewhat boring life and learn how to go out, have fun, and date guys. She's been living a scholarly life ever since, focusing only on her four-walled lab and with this, her family thinks she's clearly missing out. That's why hanging out with the playboy Will Sumner is a great opportunity. However, she and Will did not expect the chemistry that simmered the moment they saw each other again after years and keeping up a platonic relationship is almost too impossible.I can't stand how swoon-worthy this book was. Will and Hanna's chemistry was on-point and it didn't help the fact that both characters are one helluva fun to read about. This is your typical friends-with-benefits book but it's clearly one of the best when it comes to this trope. Their sizzling hot sex scenes got me all fired up. I couldn't also get over some of the hilarious scenes... like when they went to Hannah's parent's place where the chaos happened. lol. Man, I don't think I can ever get enough of these two! The relationship development didn't happen abruptly, so I was happy. I loved that their sexy times transitioned to something more in the later chapters because for me, it was so believable and realistic.I think this is the best book I've read in this series so far. I still have to read Beautiful Secret and I hope I will love it as much as I loved Beautiful Player. Sigh. Christina Lauren never fails!

    *3.75 ~ 4 Stars*”Seeing her face was – strangely – like being home again, but also like meeting a beautiful girl for the first time.”It’s finally happened Will Sumner, the player has fell head over heels in love! All of his friends are having a lot of fun with it. Will’s childhood friend, Jensen asks him to coax his sister Hanna out of the labs of Columbia University and start living life. It’s been years since Will has seen Hanna and this time he sees her as the beautiful woman she has grown into. ”I was the kid sister, scenery, a backdrop to his many adventures with Jensen and his brief fling with my sister. And now I was calling him to – what? Take me out? Play some board games? Teach me how to…”My issue with the book is Hanna’s claim to have had five sexual partners but is still completely inexperienced in the bedroom. One or zero partners would have been more believable to support her complete ignorance.Still all the sex scenes were very hot. I loved the sexting, the Jesus lines, Will being a boob man and all his guidance. This was a steamy brother’s best friend romance that had all the authors’ trademark humor which I just love. For one reason or another it wasn’t wow for me. It could be because I read three of these books in row. Regardless it was hot, funny and entertaining but the Brit, Max Stella is still my favorite in this series.

    4.5 Sweet and Sexy StarsLike always I am late to this party. I read about the Stranger and the Bastard, but someone missed reading about the Player. Ms. Lauren’s writing is always extremely hot and entertaining. Through in a “brother’s best friend” type story and I am SOLD! I love these types of books. These books give the sneaking around/forbidden love and usually a happy ending for the girl or guy who always had a childhood crush. In Beautiful Player, we meet Hanna, or Ziggy as her family likes to call her, she is a nerdy girl…and I mean this in the best possible way. She is crazy smart, eccentric and has no filter. I loved these qualities in Hanna. The things she said had me LMAO."Actually, yeah. I don’t think I’ve ever wanted someone so much I would beg for it. A cookie? Yes. A cock? No.”She is in school getting her doctorate when her older brother decides to have an ‘intervention.” He wants Hanna to get out of the lab, meet people, live a little. Nothing extreme just live her life instead of focusing on solely on school. He suggests she meet up with college buddy Will. Will Sumner knows hot to show a girl a good time, and Hanna still remembers the stories and watching Will when she was growing up. She takes her brother’s advice and decides to call Will, at like 5 in the morning…see eccentric. Will decides he will help Hanna and they begin running together in the morning. This is when Hanna and Will get to know each other, gradually through conversation. Will is attracted to Hanna, but doesn’t feel right about having feelings for the younger girl who happens to be his buddy’s younger sister. Hanna has always had a crush on Will, but knows he is a player so nothing serious could ever come form her feelings. So she is fine with being friends and having him teach her how to be social and eventually date. Yes, this is when things get a little complicated for the two. Having to fight their attraction for each other, when everything is telling them to just let go.Like I said before, I love this type of book and really enjoyed this one in particular. It is a sweet story, yes, but also incredibly hot. I highly recommend if you are looking for a sweet read that is also off the charts sexy.

    4.5 Playful, Educational, Mindful, Sensual Stars * * * * 1/2 Spoiler FreeI have been reading the Beautiful Bastard series with my Buddy, Shurrn. Through this experience I have stumbled into the fantasy land of Bennett learning to love Chloe. I then met the wonderful Max and watched with fascination his courtship of Sara. In Beautiful Player, it is Will’s turn to be under the microscope. His journey is a very special one because although he will be asked to be the teacher, he will end up learning from his student. Hanna, also known as Ziggy by family and Will, is in grad school focusing on all things nerdy and scientific. She is so concentrated on just finishing, her life has been slipping away…. No parties… No serious real social interactions and her family is a little concerned. They ambush her; force to see her dilemma and make her promise to reach out to Will, her brother Jenson’s long time friend and Max’s business partner.Hanna has a history with Will; she met him when she was 12 to his 19 and learned through observation all things Will. He was sex on a stick. Will was what women loved… Will also broke hearts… at least from Hanna’s little history of him through the grapevine. So to reach out to see if Will can assist her socially, was kinda daunting ....because who was he now?The Will Hanna meets up with has everything neatly compartmentalized. He has women he sees on specific days of the week with no relationship complications. Nothing is messy and he has liked it that way.He has felt, though, a little out of sorts with his friends all paired up recently … and that has left him uneasy. Will sees Hanna and she is not the same girl he has always thought of… he saw her grow older over the years and now as a woman of 24 … she is something else all together.As a way for them to “hang out”, Hanna agrees to run with him in the mornings. He is a marathoner and challenges her to train and do a half marathon in a couple of months. She agrees and what takes place next is very interesting….You see Hanna has always be a free thinker… someone comfortable to just say what is on her mind without fear… and Will has been on her mind for years… he was her sexual fantasy… her dream lover and now he is right there…. open to talk with her about anything…..And since Will knows sex… and Hanna hasn’t really ever had great sex… who better to discuss this with… who better to be frank about these things… because after all.. they both think like scientists and who else could she really learn from.They embark on a journey of Hanna doing porn research and asking Will to do things with her… he becomes her guide, her teacher in how to date, have casual sex and interact with others. The unexpected happens with Will becoming Hanna’s student… she stuns him; causes him to feel and want more than he has ever wanted from a woman and it shakes him to his core. The sexy times between these two are so fresh in how they are presented. Because really…. How do we learn about sex? If we are lucky, we meet and experience closeness; and that chemistry which allows our bodies to react with all the right tingles, forgives the clumsiness of young love. But there is no guarantee of that happening and our character, Hanna decides to use porn as an instructional guide with Will. He takes her step by step; carefully without pushing her boundaries, letting her lead the way. They both switch roles… she, learning there is more than the mechanics…. He experiencing an intensity and need like nothing before. The writing was true, hot and totally understandable for the characters.This is a very endearing tale with the ups and downs of understanding how to handle relationships honesty and with growth. I think the authors have really developed over the series. They know their characters, have a rhythm and seem to be in their groove with all of the stories. Our next stop is the upcoming marriage of Bennett and Chloe with all of the gang in Beautiful Beginnings. I have chosen my wedding outfit and I am ready to go….

    4.5 Surprise the Hell Out of Me StarsWhat are you wearing?We were meeting for breakfast in a half an hour and maybe he was worried I would show up looking, as he liked to say, like a graduate student hobo.I looked down at the towel around my otherwise naked chest and typed, Black jeans, yellow top, blue sweater.No, Ziggy. I mean *insert innuendo* WHAT ARE YOU WEARING.Now I was really confused. I don't get it, I typed.I'm sexting you.I paused, looked down at the phone for a few more minutes before responding with What?He typed so much faster than I did, and his response appeared almost immediately. It's not nearly as hot when I have to explain it. New rule: you need to be at least borderline competent in the art of sexting.Understanding went off like a lightbulb in my head. Oh! And ha! "Sexting." Clever, Will. What can I say? I absolutely loved all things Hanna and Will! With Will's booty call scheduling, playboy ways and Hanna's socially awkward yet completely open and honest personality, these two kept me entertained the entire story.I'm going to be honest and say that the first book in this series, Beautiful Bastard was not for me. The constant ripping of pricey underwear coupled with the fact that Bennett's personality reminded me of an 80s era James Spader, who just so you know, scared the bejesus out of my preteen self with his assholery, just didn't work for me. To say this sweet and utterly sexy story was a pleasant surprise would be an understatement. I started reading it for the "little sister has a huge ass crush on big brother's best friend" aspect but I stuck around because I loved watching these two start to feel the serious sexy time heat. The sensitive, panty melting bit of male hotness that is Will falling hard for the awkward and boobalicious Hanna rocked my world just a bit. "I was twelve. You were a nineteen-year old hot friend of my brother who joked about sex in our house. You were practically a mythical creature."Yes, Hanna. Will's always been all kinds of hot. And he's inordinately fascinated with your rack. Go get your man, girl!

    4.5 Stars!I LOVE all of my beautiful boys!!! Even that bastard Bennett! And while my beautiful stranger Max remains my favorite beautiful boy (I think it's because he's British)“Ben,” Max said, leaning back in his chair with a giant grin. “It’s finally happened.”I groaned, resting my head on my hand.“You got your period?” Bennett asked. “Congratulations.”“No, you twat,” Max said, laughing. “I’m talking about Will. He’s gone arse over tits for a girl.” beautiful player Will comes in a very close second. I love that we get the whole gang in each book. The banter between them all is one of my favorite things about this series. I pretty much laughed through the whole book.I have really loved all of the characters. So Will and Ziggy. Ziggy aka Hanna is the little sister of Jensen....who went to college with Will. Ziggy is on her way to becoming a scientist. She studies alot and doesn't really have a life outsife of work. She doesn't go out and doesn't have a lot of friends. At the insistence of Jensen, Ziggy calls Will up....looking to expand her social horizons. I really, really liked Ziggy. She was blunt, crass, abrupt. The filter between her brain and mouth...GONE! But it was perfect. Ziggy's always had a bit of a crush on Will. And Ziggy is no longer the kid sister but a smart, strong, tough chick. Their relationship kind of starts out as Will "coaching" Ziggy on the aspects of dating and being with men. Afterall, he's the expertWill, Will, Will....RA-freaking-WR!!!!!Damn....bedroom Will...all dominant and controlling. Sadly, the drama or conflict came from mis-communication...which is really my only complaint. But it wasn't drug out endlessly, everything was resolved pretty quickly. This was another great addition to the Beautiful Bastard series. All that's left is Bennett and Chloe's wedding. I am going to be so sad when I have to say goodbye to my Beautiful boys!!! This is a series that I will definitely be reading again!!!!

    I finally got around to listening to this audiobook. It has been sitting in my Audible library for quite some time and I decided to give it a listen during my daily commute. As far as audiobooks go, the narration was great and the story moved along at a nice pace.Like earlier books in this series, 'Beautiful Player' proved to be feisty and highly entertaining. Will and Hannah were hysterical together. I loved their "anything goes" banter. I also liked that these two had history together, even if they hadn't been romantically involved. Knowing that they had known each other for years made their relationship seem less like "insta-love" and increased the credibility.Although the two experienced some growing pains, it didn't seem overly dramatic or far-fetched. I could easily relate to the characters and laugh at their antics. I believed their love story and the chemistry between the two.This story was fun and sexy! It was straightforward and easy to follow along with while driving, etc. I enjoyed every minute!

    ☆4 Stars☆I didn't think I could love anyone as much as Max Stella, but I do! I LOVED Will. And finally his time for love has come! This was a fun, sexy read with some serious scorching, steamy scenes. If I could base my rating on Will alone then this would be a 4.5-5 stars for me. But I had a few issues with Hanna.Besides marriage of inconvenience, I love the best friends sister storyline. It's one of my faves. But because of Hanna this story quickly went to one of my least favorite plots which is "friends with benefits". There were times when I wanted to ring Hanna's neck! Will clearly wanted to be in a relationship with her, but because of his debauched past she kept pushing him away. That to me was becoming a bit annoying, because me personally I would have a hard time pushing Will away. Also, it was really hard to believe that Hanna was so inexperienced when she admitted to sleeping with 5 men. I didn't mind the whole inexperienced vibe with Hanna, but I don't think it suited her much. Overall, even though it fell flat in the middle, it was still enjoyable, sexy and funny. I definitely think it's worth reading if only for Will. And if you don't mind the friends with benefits storyline then you'd love this book!:)

    4 - 4.5 ★'s Everyone, and I mean everyone has told me how much they love Will and it made me really curious about his book. I mean, he's been okay? A little picked on by Max and Bennett...and he seemed fun loving, crazy and definitely girl crazy. And that was totally true...after all, it's called Beautiful Player for a reason. What I really loved about this book is that Will doesn't even know what hit him! I LOVE when the guy falls hard and the girl is unsure. There's just nothing better! Will is sooo willing too. He will do anything that Hanna wants and he LOVES it. It's just so great! The very best thing though is Ziggy, aka Hanna. She's Will's best friend in college little sister who started swooning over Will when she was just twelve years old. She's a totally lab rat though and her brother has come to pull her out and make her get a life. She promises to do so and calls Will and the rest is history. The funny thing is that Hanna has no filter around Will and she wants to learn everything! And wow...once the good get going, the GOOD gets going. These two are super steamy and I loved how they started off with the fundamentals even if it took a while to get to the full show. It was very intense! And I loved how he called her "Plum" but I almost like it better when he called her Hanna instead of Ziggy.But I loved their intellectual discussions as well. It was great that they were on the same wavelength. And as always, I loved getting both their POVs. And one of the best things about this series is that all the other characters are still around. They are all good friends. I loved how Bennett and Max gave Will a hard time but how they were all there for him as well. It was wonderful how the girls took to Hanna right away.Of course there has to be some drama. It was kind of hard to believe that someone as "forthright" as Hanna would hold out on Will but it needed to happen. I was surprised at how Kitty handled things...I expected her to be a total witch!Gotta love that ending...Will is just so sweet! And the epilogue was cute. I can't wait to read Beautiful Beginning! Favorite quotes:♥ "You guys are like the Hot Men’s Club of Manhattan.” “I don’t think that’s a thing. And anyway, do you really think we’d let Max in?” I said, grinning.♥ “God? I thought you were agnostic, Professor.” “I am. But if I could motorboat perfect tits like yours I might be able to find Jesus.”♥ “Guys really like the anal, don’t they?” I closed my eyes for a beat, holding in a laugh. “It’s just called anal. Not the anal.”♥ “Oh, my God. Did you just use an O-chem reference to tell me Aaron looks better from the back than the front?” I groaned and looked away. “I think I just broke some sort of nerd record.”♥ "I think I'm the Kitty."♥ "All that is rare for the rare."♥ "Hey! Look! I found Jesus in your cleavage after all!"♥ “I love you so fucking much, my naughty, sweet Plum.”

    The Beautiful Bastard Series rolls on with another fabulous romance. Will Sumner proves he can rise to the swoon-worthy ranks of Bennet Ryan & Max Stella… “...You guys are like the Hot Men’s Club of Manhattan." The story of Will and Ziggy is sweet and scorching hot. This series never holds back on the sexy times, and Will quickly establishes that he is an experienced and capable lover of women… He's a tattooed, boob loving, dirty talking, deep thinking, highly educated, slightly perverted, and a sexual fantasy incarnate.Will SumnerKnown player, venture capitalist, business partner of Max Stella (my Book Boyfriend)… and the childhood crush of little Ziggy…Hanna "Ziggy" BergstromStudent, science-geek, and completely lacking a brain-to-mouth filter. She is on a mission to understand the dating scene…Hanna has been studying so hard in the lab at Colombia University while working on her Masters Degree, that she has completely neglected her social life… Her family visits New York and encourages her to call a family friend (Will) to jumpstart her social life, and get out of the house a bit...Will was best friends with Ziggy's older brother in college, and interned for her father after graduation. They've known each other for twelve years, so there's a good deal of history between them. Ziggy has oscillated between a little sister figure and a complete non-entity in Will's memory… Little Ziggy, however, had placed Will on a pubescent pedestal… to her, Will was the epitome of sex.One might assume that Hanna was presented as naive and virginal in her quest to claim her sexuality. However, that was not the case. She was presented as incredibly intelligent - merely curious and a bit awkward because she doesn't censor her thoughts or feelings. She is driven to succeed in all things, so it was mastery of sexuality that she was looking for. Hanna was treating it like everything else in her life - If she's taught by experts in the field & spends enough time studying the issue, she will become proficient.And sure, Will is a Player, but he's a lovable player in the process of reforming himself. He takes the opportunity to teach Ziggy the dating ropes, and hold her hand (um… quite literally at times) as she embraces her inner bombshell. I love that we had the chance to see the moment where Will had to analyze his behavior toward his casual female companions… When he runs into Dylan, the college boy Ziggy has gone out with a few times, and realizes what the previous women in his life must have felt like. Had they ever run into each other on the street, and how did that make them feel? Brilliant.The story was well crafted in its progression. The growing sexual tension between the two main characters was great - the playful flirting was especially enjoyable. I mention this because it is an often overlooked element in the Modern Romance genre, where the characters often jump into bed immediately and then try to sort out their emotions…That said, the sex was off-the-charts hot (in keeping with the previous panty-melting books in the series)… Will instructing Hanna techniques for pleasure was sensual rather than controlling. His desire to help Hanna explore her sexuality in a safe environment - with a person who cares for her welfare - allows Will to consider his previous sexual relationships to date.The humor really made this book - the interaction between Ziggy and Will made the progression of their relationship believable. And of course, the rest of the Beautiful Bastard Gang was there to watch Will finally fall head-over-heels for a girl. “Ben,” Max said, leaning back in his chair with a giant grin. “It’s finally happened.”I groaned, resting my head on my hand.“You got your period?” Bennett asked. “Congratulations.”“No, you twat,” Max said, laughing. “I’m talking about Will. He’s gone arse over tits for a girl.”...“Fantastic! Does he look miserable?” The Official The Rules learned in Beautiful Player:Throughout the book, Will creates a list of "rules" for dating, heres the whole list…(view spoiler)[1. Don’t ever call someone before the sun is up.2. Don’t ever discuss hymen regeneration over lunch. Or . . . like, ever.3. You need to be at least borderline competent in the art of sexting.4. You can only use the word good so many times in a conversation before it becomes disingenuous. Find better adjectives to describe your state of mind post-dates.5. Don’t freak out and walk away from someone in your own house.6. Things are only weird if you let them be.7. There is no rule about having unprotected sex twice in a day.8. There aren’t any other lovers.9. Even after only four months, it's incredibly good form to think of someone as your forever.Clauses to the Official Rules:1. You can make an exception for nearly any rule-breaking while wearing a thin tank top & pajama pants.2. You absolutely cannot break rule eight, because "Fuck that. Fuck that noise.” (hide spoiler)]Some of My Favorite Moments(view spoiler)[Good sweet baby Jesus, I wanted to bang the smirk off this man.I held up my hands. “It’s a nice thought, you guys. But Ziggy really isn’t my type.”“What’s your type? Walks? Has a pussy?” Max asked.She was pretty—actually, she was beautiful—but she wasn’t poised or contained. She was silly, and confident, and so much her own person it almost made the rest of the world seem monochromatic. I had no idea if she even took herself seriously, but she certainly didn’t expect me to.“See, the problem with boobs is if you have big ones, you can never look thin. You get these burns on your shoulders from bra straps, and your back hurts. And unless you’re using them for their intended purpose, they’re always in the way.”“In the way of what? My hands? My face? Don’t you blaspheme in here.” He looked up to the sky. “She didn’t mean it, Lord. Promise.”Ignoring him, I said, “That’s why I had a reduction when I was twenty-one,” which is when his expression morphed into one of horror.You’d have thought I told him I made an amazing stew from tiny babies and puppy tongues.“Why on earth would you do that? That’s like God giving you a beautiful gift and you kicking him in the nuts.”I laughed. “God? I thought you were agnostic, Professor.”“I am. But if I could motorboat perfect tits like yours I might be able to find Jesus.”I felt my blush warm my cheeks. “Because Jesus totally lives in my cleavage?”“Her boobs were . . . wow. She clearly knows Jesus.”Will completely cracked up and wrapped his arm around my shoulders. “Let’s just say finding religion cost her a lot of money.”“I like it when you ask me to come!” he called after me. “I can’t wait to come tonight, Ziggy! Should I come around eight? Or do you want me to come around ten? Maybe I’ll come both times?”It had been forever since I’d felt like I wanted to take over someone’s sexual history, completely overwrite it with my hands and dick and mouth.“I don’t think I’ve ever wanted someone so much I would beg for it. A cookie? Yes. A cock? No.”I’d never had a lot of female friends—and I’d definitely never had one like Chloe Mills—but even I was smart enough to be a little afraid of her. I got the distinct impression that even Bennett was a little afraid of her.“So it’s going to be a grad school rager? Will they have kegs and Fritos?”“Dr. Sumner,” she sighed. “Don’t be a snob.”“I’m not being a snob,” I said. “I’m being a man in his early thirties who finished grad school years ago and considers it a wild night when he goads Max into spending over a thousand dollars on a bottle of scotch.”Dylan looked like every other Columbia student in the place: dressed down to the point he was toeing the line between pajama-clad and hobo.“But when he kissed me? I didn’t feel lost in him the way I get lost in you.”I’d always understood why women wanted Will in the first place. He wasn’t beautiful in the same way Bennett was, and he wasn’t tender like Max. He was visceral and imperfect, dark and knowing. He gave the sense that he looked at a woman and in an instant read every need she had.I requested we move our regular group lunch from Tuesday to Monday on the basis that I’d lost my balls and my mind, and no one argued. It seemed that I’d reached a level of moony lovesickness that made giving me shit a lot less fun for my friends.“You are such a pervert, smiling at my scraped knees.”“You’re such a pervert, knowing why I’m smiling.”“You like the idea of getting my knees all scraped up?” she asked with a growing smile of her own.“I’m sorry,” I said, shaking my head with absolute insincerity. “I really do.”“I like when you throw me around a little, have your way with me. I like when you act like my body is yours.”Will was predatory and seductive every minute of the day; but in the morning, he should be illegal.Will sat up beneath me, sucking on my neck before moving his mouth to the shell of my ear. “I need to fuck you.”I let my head fall back. “Didn’t you do that last night?”“That was hours ago.”Of course I’d been attracted to women before. But there was something more with Hanna, some chemistry in our blood, something between us that snapped and crackled, that made me always want just a little more than I should take. She offered her friendship, I wanted her body. She offered her body, I wanted to hijack her thoughts. She offered her thoughts, I wanted her heart.“I know it’s crazy and I know it’s stupid. But God, that’s how you make me feel.”“Don’t break me, okay?”Even in the darkness I could see his brows pull together. “You said that before. Why do you think I would break you? Do you think I even could?”His voice rumbled low and encouraging in my ear, telling me how good I felt, how close he was, how he needed this so much he felt like he worked every day just to get back to me. He told me being with me felt like being home.Fuck. I already missed Hanna, and being with my two closest friends who were so . . . situated made it hard. It wasn’t that I felt I needed to catch up to some milestone of theirs; I simply wanted that comfort of knowing I could go out with my friends for an evening and still come home to her.

    3.5 STARSEnjoyable.The story itself is good, although I felt it was very heavily weighted in sexual encounters & not as much emotional investment as I would have liked. I did enjoy that it was Will who fell head over heels first. What I didn't particularly enjoy was Hannah's ridiculous naive approach to dating. She drove me a bit batty with her "teach me" moments. I'm glad Will found it hot (I guess a lot of men might), but it just didn't really work for me.It's an audio-book, so the voice acting does play a big role. I enjoyed both of the voice actors very much. Independently, either one of them could have pulled off the story, but I was happy to have both a male and a female for the back and forth pov's. Overall, a great way to spend my daily work commute. Although, I was certain to keep the windows up & the A/C on, since I didn't want my fellow motorists to overhear all the thrusting and licking going on in this story. *sweating*

    ** 5++ “Don’t break me, okay?” STARS **It wasn't just a physical attraction between us. Of course I'd been attracted to women before. But there was something more with Hanna, some chemistry in our blood, something between us that snapped and crackled, that made me always want just a little more than I should take.She offered her friendship, I wanted her body. She offered her body, I wanted to hijack her thoughts. She offered her thoughts, I wanted HER HEART.~ WILLThis book was a surprise. I certainly wasn't prepared for this much awesomeness. Will and his Plum may be one of my fav book couples from now on...OVERALL: 100% recommended, b*tchez!

    If this book isn't hot, I don't know what is. The sex scenes, I'd be like: Now, Beautiful Bastard is highly focused on the sex, I mean, they are doing it like five percent in the book, and I'm sorry - but I loved it. Beautiful Player definitely has a slower approach. But when they get there - dayum.I always love reformed player stories, and this one didn't disappoint. Will has different girls for different days of the week - there is no disputing his player status, but he's a hero you could really love aside from his manwhore antics. Hanna's family calls an intervention on her to have some fun and not be so focused on work. With Will being Hanna's brother's best friend, and living nearby, it's suggested she give him a call to show her the city and get out and about. Now this turns into a great relationship: they start off friends and then slowly start having feelings, and then hand-jobs. Yep. Hottest hand-job scene evah. I loved seeing Will, Bennett, and Max interact - it was all so hilarious. I don't know why I haven't read Max's story yet, but that Brit is definitely on my radar now. And Hanna is one of my favorite kinds of heroines. She doesn't have a filter, and says outrageous things and has no reservations about them, either. The perfect amount of conflict, angst and sexy times. I'd totally recommend to those who love a good player who falls hard.

    I realized I've never written a review for my most favorite Christina Lauren book. I'm a little ashamed of myself. Because anyone who knows me knows of my all consuming OBSESSION WITH WILL FREAKING SUMNER: “That isn’t just sex,” I told her, sucking along her collarbone. “This feeling that it’s so good it almost hurts? It’s been like this every single time I’ve been inside you, Plum. That’s what it feels like when you do this with someone you’re fucking insane for.” “I think you’d melt like sugar on my tongue. What do you think?” She laughed a little, holding on to my shoulders. “I think I’m melting now.” “I think you are. I think you’re going to melt all over my fucking hand and I’ll lick it off after. Are you loud, little Plum? When you come are you wild?” “I’m going to lose my fucking mind with my mouth on you.”"I was so lost in love with this girl.""She was so fucking sweet and warm, our first kiss was unreal: just a slide of my lips over hers, asking: Let me do this. Let me do this and be gentle and careful with every part of you."“Do you think about it?” she asked. “Kissing me there?” “I have,” I admitted. “I think about it and wonder if I’d ever come up for air.” Need I say more?Find Me On:Instagram ❤ FB Page ❤ FB Blog ❤ Blog ❤ Twitter

    5 "Smitten" Stars!Hanna Bergstrom aka Ziggy/Plum is a 24 yr. old woman in grad school for biomedical engineering. She has moved to New York, and is living in her parents Manhattan apartment. She has sort of been an awkward geek most of her life. She doesn't have many friends, and spends most of her time in the lab.Hanna is the youngest of 5 kids. Her older brother Jensen has always been overprotective and tried to micromanage her life. Hanna's dad and brother come to visit, and her brother is relentless in lecturing Hanna about needing a social life. He thinks she is a smart, fun, beautiful girl, and she needs an intervention to break her away from her research centered life. He convinces her to call his best friend Will who also lives in New York, & suggests they get together. He feels Will is the perfect person to show Hanna some fun.Will Sumner is a 31 yr. old playboy. He plays the field, and knows how to have a good time. Hanna met Will the Christmas she was 12 when her brother brought home his college friend for the holidays. Will was a 19 yr. old cool, gorgeous guy in a band, who only saw Hanna as Jensen's kid sister. He continued to visit with Jensen and even lived with them one summer, working for her father.For years Hanna fantasized over her brothers bad boy best friend. Will was the object of all her teenage dreams, and the first boy she ever truly wanted. Hanna hasn't seen Will in a few years, but takes her brothers advice about needing more balance in her life. She calls Will, and he invites her to meet for a run.When Hanna shows up to run, Will is shocked by how much little Ziggy has grown up, and filled out in all the right places. He is very attracted to grown up Hanna, and finds they really enjoy each others company. She is naïve, and unfiltered, and Will finds her refreshing. They run almost every morning, and Will kind of coaches Hanna on what guys want in a woman. Hanna becomes more confident in herself, and enjoys spending time with Will & his friends. Eventually Will realizes he just might want Hanna for himself. He has become quite attached to her and is falling for her. I just love a brothers best friend romance. Max was my favorite in the beautiful men series, but now it's Will. Will is just so damn delicious!!! YUMMMMMM!!!! :D-Holy fuck, I liked this girl. I liked her a lot.-"Your smoldering might eventually kill me, Will. And the best thing is I think you have no clue that you look at women this way."-"Hanna. I don't know if I've ever wanted something more than I want you. I really don't think I have," I said. "I think about just kissing you, for fucking hours. Do you know that kind of kissing? Where it's enough for so long you don't even think of doing anything else?"-"I like when you watch me. I can't think straight when you have those crazy gray eyes on me."-I'd always understood why women wanted Will in the first place. He wasn't beautiful in the same way Bennett was, and he wasn't tender like Max. He was visceral and imperfect, dark and knowing.-Being with Hanna wasn't just about intense physical pleasure; it also made me feel calm, and thrilled, and known.-"What do you want me to do to you tonight?" "Anything." I lifted an eyebrow. "Anything?" She reconsidered, whispering, "Everything."-Will was predatory and seductive every minute of the day; but in the morning, he should be illegal.-Nobody makes me feel like you do.-It wasn't just a physical attraction between us. Of course I'd been attracted to women before. But there was something more with Hanna, some chemistry in our blood, something between us that snapped and crackled, that made me always want just a little more than I should take. She offered her friendship, I wanted her body. She offered her body, I wanted to hijack her thoughts. She offered her thoughts, I wanted her heart.

    5 "Feels Like Home" Stars The last "Beautiful" man in this fabulous series."You're a mysterious man, Player Will."Will is the last holdout amongst his friends, Max and Bennett, to need love. Oh he has sex, sex without strings and he is happy for it to stay that way. He is organized and a scheduler. What more can he need. He's 31 yrs old and is happy with his life. One day his old college roommate asks a favor, to meet his little sister and help her "get out" in the city. She is a scientist and is always in the lab. She needs to live alittle. How could he refuse, he loved the Bergstrom family. So he meets "Ziggy"......and well Ziggy is all grown up and not that little kid he remembered.The fact that she was disarmingly genuine and funny and surprisingly pretty shouldn't have thrown me so dramatically.Bennett straightened joining in. "It's about finding the woman who gets you thinking. She'll be the one who'll change your mind about everything."This story is about discovering new feelings, unmasking old feelings and going home. It's about too much communication and not enough. Will is a player and Hanna knows it. She wants to learn from him but not at the expense of her heart. She would need to remember: Secret agent. Like a Ninja. Learn from the best.This story starts as a friends with benefits relationship, Will teaching Hanna the ropes so to say. She's not a virgin, just not someone with a lot of experience. Somewhere along the way, feelings start to develop. While they are both very honest to one another, communicating about their real feelings is somehow missed. This is a super sweet, sexy, romantic story. It has Bennett, Chloe, Max and Sara making appearances and giving their two cents. The relationship that all these characters have with one another only enhances the series. This books is the perfect blend of steamy sex and discovering love when you least expect it. I can't recommend this book/series enough!! It's Fabulicious!!BR with one of my Pinkies-the other needs to read this series ASAP!!

    5 HOT STARS!!“In the end one loves one’s desire and not what is desired.”I LOVE THIS SERIES! I have read and loved every book! This one is no exception. Beautiful Player is about Hanna and Will. We meet Will briefly in Beautiful Bombshell when the guys are in Vegas for Bennett’s bachelor party. He is successful, smart and handsome “player”- lives by his own rules and doesn’t want to commit to a serious relationship. early morning he receives a phone call from his best friend’s nerdy little sister- Ziggy. But he is in for a big surprise- the nerdy sister has grown to be a smart and beautiful woman and she has a proposition for him.Hanna (“Ziggy”) has been focused only on her career for too long and needs someone to “teach” her how to improve her dating life. So her teenage crush (who happens to be older, tattooed, smart, sexy and funny) seems to be the perfect choice for a teacher. Will is enjoying his job as a mentor but soon he realises that “Ziggy” doesn’t need much help. And then his “job” is just not enough for him. For the first time in his life he wants more. I really liked this story. It is fun, sweet, HOT and interesting. Will and Hanna’s relationship is an absolute rollercoaster. They want each other but both of them make mistakes and are often insecure about their feelings. However their passion and attraction is just amazing!!The characters from the previous books appear quite often and there is drama around them too. I love Max and Bennett so much!! They are absolutely hilarious. “Ben,” Max said, leaning back in his chair with a giant grin. “It’s finally happened.”I groaned, resting my head on my hand.“You got your period?” Bennett asked. “Congratulations.”“No, you twat,” Max said, laughing. “I’m talking about Will. He’s gone arse over tits for a girl.”“Oh, Victoria,” he said, giddy. “Do you have a Secret? Do you have a fondness for helping women find well-fitting ladywear?” (Max to Will)This is definitely one of my favourite series! I can’t wait for the next book!

    What did I just read? 400 pages of goodness, that is. Ohmylord, just when I thought Max was the perfect embodiment of the word perfection, Will comes and rips that title off of him without batting an eye! Yes, that means Will is my new favourite person from this series.I'll try to come up with a more informative rant later!

    If you liked Bennett and Max, you are going to love Will. Best book of the series so far IMO.

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️5 STARS ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️If you haven't read any of the Beautiful series yet, then you're in for a treat! I don't know what kept me from reading this one, but whatever the reason, it was wrong!I'm going to make quick recap (ahaha as if!) of what's going on in this one as I think it's safe to say almost everyone has read it by now. Each Beautiful book is centered around a couple falling in love, we met, Ryan Bennet and Chloe Mills in BASTARD, Max Stella and Sara Dillon in STRANGER, and we finally get to see our PLAYER, Will Sumner falling for a woman.These books keep getting better and better! I loved the first one, (if you enjoyed Wallbanger, Tangled...) and loved even more the second book, but I must say I was really surprised with this one! I wasn't expecting it to blow my mind! I will admit right here and right now that whenever Max Stella is involved : And this is now also true for Will Sumner... •*´¨`*•.¸¸.•*´¨`*•.¸•*´¨`*•.¸¸.•*´¨`*•.¸The story...Living in New york, Hanna aka Ziggy, is a 24 years old student scientist dedicated to her work. Okay, truth is, she barely leaves her lab.Her big brother, Jensen, worried about her social life - or lack thereof- pushes her to call his friend Will to help her getting out and meet people.Remember, Will Sumner? He is the player of our sexy bunch of New Yorkers, doesn't plan to settle down EVER. Has scheduled hook ups with several women. Yes, charming, right?Soon they are meeting over a morning run, and Will is surprised to discover an all grown up "Ziggy".He's pretty much rendered speechless by her no filter's mouth, she basically says whatever is on her mind.Ziggy has a much more specific idea of what she needs to break her boring routine. She needs to learn from a player, how to be with men. What could be better than study from the BEST?“Not to change the subject, but I watched some porn last night.”“Christ, Ziggs, you have zero filter.”“Do women really make those noises in bed?”I stilled, grinning over at her. “What noises, Ziggy?”“Like, ‘Oh, oh, Willll, I need your cock’ and ‘Harder, harder, oh God, fuck me, big daddy’ . . . and so on.” Her voice had gone soft, and breathy, and I was horrified to feel my dick lengthen. Again.“Um, some do.”She burst into laughter. “It’s ridiculous!” “Maybe they do need my cock. Wouldn’t you like to want someone so much you need their cock?”She took a long pull on her iced tea, considering this. “Actually, yeah. I don’t think I’ve ever wanted someone so much I would beg for it. A cookie? Yes. A cock? No.”Both Will and Ziggy hit it off pretty quickly, developing a friend relationship, Will doing his best to help Ziggy with her "game". Improving her dressing, flirting, sexting... Oh the sexting parts were hilarious! -What are you wearing?-Black jeans, yellow top, blue sweater.-No, Ziggy. I mean *insert innuendo* WHAT ARE YOU WEARING.-I don’t get it.-I’m sexting you.Things escalate pretty quickly, Will giving Hanna her first taste at what other men would like and realizing at the same time she's different from all the other women he hooked up with. He's confused about where this is all leading them to, but for Hanna's experiment sake, he keeps a straight face.Will coaching seems to work, seeing as soon enough, Hanna gets a date. Will was maybe way over his head already, the idea of his Zigs with another man is driving him nuts.Little does he know that Hanna is experiencing the same predicament and is barely trying to honor her date...Both admitting their attraction and chemistry for each other, the fun begins...The sex scenes were scorching hot, playful and something you better know right now is the level of dirty talk involved. High. Melting your panties kind. Will Sumner is sure sex driven, and I loved that he was a "talker". Best of all, it wasn't awkward, as often encountered in erotica or romance books.Angst was delivered moderately, and drama was defined by the well known misinterpretation and indecisiveness, but again sparingly displayed. I thought it made sense with both Hanna and Will personalities, and it wasn't over stretched.All in all you have great contemporary romance book right here! With some truly hot moments, but I must say what really made me love this book was the great quality banter. Will and Hanna were hilarious!“See, the problem with boobs is if you have big ones, you can never look thin. You get these burns on your shoulders from bra straps, and your back hurts. And unless you’re using them for their intended purpose, they’re always in the way.”“In the way of what? My hands? My face? Don’t you blaspheme in here.” He looked up to the sky. “She didn’t mean it, Lord. Promise.”Ignoring him, I said, “That’s why I had a reduction when I was twenty-one,” which is when his expression morphed into one of horror.“Why on earth would you do that? That’s like God giving you a beautiful gift and you kicking him in the nuts.”I laughed. “God? I thought you were agnostic, Professor.”•*´¨`*•.¸¸.•*´¨`*•.¸•*´¨`*•.¸¸.•*´¨`*•.¸Wonder Woman, smitten, over.

    5 FAN-FUCKING-TASTIC starsThis book is ridiculously good! I couldn't put it down and lost hours of sleep devouring it! I never thought I'd say this, but I think Beautiful Player might have topped Beautiful Bastard for me! (I did not even think that was possible considering how much I loved BB!) Hot, hot, hot, sexy and paced at the perfect speed this story was amazing!I absolutely loved both Will and Hanna. How beautiful was it when Will wroteonto her hip with pen... then said that he hoped he could be that rare thing for her.... Stunning! I was gone! I can't wait for Christina and Lauren's next book - for me, they are outstanding, unmissable reads. http://cariads-sizzling-pages.blogspo... - come visit me!Sizzling Pages Romance Reviews Sizzling Pages @ Facebook Twitter:@Sizzlingpages
