A combative relationship. A red-hot attraction. And no time to be alone together.

Just when Chloe's career starts to take off, Bennett wishes it would all slow down long enough to spend a wild night alone with his intern-cum-girlfriend. Preferably one in which he can show her he's still the boss.

After her continued refusals to take time off with him, Bennett can finally no longer take no for an answer. And so the couple find themselves with two plane tickets, one French villa, and a surprising conversation that, predictably, leaves them wrestling under the covers.

Picking up where Beautiful Bastard left off, Chloe Mills and Bennett Ryan continue their fiery love-hate relationship...and take it to the next level.

        I really enjoyed this novella. It was a quick, fun, and dirty read. I'm really glad that Christina Lauren wrote this novella because it gave me more closure from Beautiful Bastard's ending. I thought that Beautiful Bastard ended rather abruptly and in Beautiful Bitch Christina Lauren fill us in on what happened after the closing scenes of Bastard. 

I also remembered exactly who Sara was in Bastard. I couldn't, for the life of me, remember her role in Chloe and Bennett's life. Now, I'm super excited to read Beautiful Stranger, especially after getting a glimpse of Max Stella. He sounds yummy and I can't wait to meet him. 

      I agree with Jenn. I really enjoyed Beautiful Bastard and I was left wanting more. Apart from the title, I really enjoyed Beautiful Bitch. I feel like we get a lot more from Bennett's point of view which is something I really loved. 

Beautiful Bitch was a perfect segue novella. It had enough "flashbacks" that explained what happened between Bennett and Chloe without bogging me down with unnecessary details. Christina Lauren did a great job of reintroducing Sara and introducing Max and effectively setting the scene for Beautiful Stranger.
