Beautiful Boss (Beautiful Bastard #4.5) by Christina Lauren: ARC Review


The ninth work in the New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling series that started with Beautiful Bastard. In this e-novella, Will Sumner and Hanna Bergstrom (from Beautiful Player) find that a wedding and everlasting love were just the beginning.

One Player tamed. One nerd girl satisfied. And one more major life decision to make. When Will fell for Hanna, her quirky sense of humor and fierce dedication to her career were part of the attraction. (Not to mention her coy newbie attitude toward sex and her willingness to let him teach her everything.) But when the job offers start rolling in for her—and oh, they do—Hanna has trouble deciding what she wants, where they should live, and how much she should burden Will with the decision. Magic between the sheets is only one part of a relationship...getting on the same page is quite another altogether.

About the Authors:

Lauren Billings (but everyone calls her Lo) has a Ph.D. in neuroscience and before she made writing her full-time job, would spend her days doing nerdy research-type things wearing a lab coat and goggles. She is silly Mommy to two littles, wife to one mountain biking homebrewing scientist, bestie to a shoe-stealer, and an unabashed lover of YA and romance.

Christina Hobbs (but you’ll always hear Lo call her PQ) used to spend her days in a junior high counseling office surrounded by teenagers. Married to the cutest boy in school, she has a thirteen year old daughter, is an unapologetic lover of boy bands and glitter, and also likes to steal Lo’s shoes.

Review by Yvette:

"This was how we started. She asked, I guided."

Can I just take a second to gush over the fact that my favorite couple from Christina Lauren's Beautiful series got a follow-up novella? I didn't think it was possible to love Will and Hanna more than I already did yet Beautiful Boss accomplished this feat with a short, but revealing glimpse into their everyday lives. The delightfully blunt bookworm and the Beautiful Player himself are back facing their first major obstacle as newlyweds. There’s a bit of drama, a lot of humor, and a good amount of action (of the bedroom variety), making Beautiful Boss 100-plus pages of deliciously naughty, immensely enjoyable fun.

There are three typical reactions when one encounters Will Sumner: giggling hysterically over his outrageously funny commentary, swooning over his sugary sweet declarations of adoration towards his bride-to-be, and brushing profusely when his dirty talk and unquenchable desires are unleashed on a more-than-willing Hanna. Hanna is his perfect complement, meeting his witty quips with her characteristic unfiltered reactions. I enjoyed getting to see more of what’s always been an easy, lighthearted banter between them because I was reminded why I fell in love with them in the first place. Together, Will and Hanna are always good for a laugh and their chemistry is off-the-charts – things which readers already knew, although Beautiful Boss certainly reinforced these facts. What this story shows is a different, more settled side of this couple, a side that confronts conflict and harmony, sorrow and happiness, and emerges stronger because of it.

Sexy, laugh-out-loud funny, and heart-meltingly sweet, Beautiful Boss is the perfect continuation of Will and Hanna’s story. Overall, this novella is a quick read with a fair amount of passion and steam, just a touch of angst, and, of course, quality time with the always-entertaining crew of the Beautiful series.
