Beautiful Player (Beautiful Bastard #3) by Christina Lauren

Book: Beautiful Player , by Christina Lauren

My Rating for it : 4 1/2 stars

SYNOPSIS

When Hanna Bergstrom receives a lecture from her overprotective brother about neglecting her social life and burying herself in grad school, she’s determined to tackle his implied assignment: get out, make friends, start dating. And who better to turn her into the sultry siren every man wants than her brother’s gorgeous best friend, Will Sumner, venture capitalist and unapologetic playboy?

Will takes risks for a living, but he’s skeptical about this challenge of Hanna until the wild night his innocently seductive pupil tempts him into bed- and teaches him a thing or two about being with a woman he can’t forget.

Now that Hanna has discovered the power of her own sex appeal, it’s up to Will to prove he’s the only man she’ll ever need.

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT

I have read, all the books in this series a long time ago, but this is the one d

That I decided to re read a few days ago (for like the 4rth time) because I can say without a doubt that it’s my favorite from the bunch.

Don’t get me wrong I love me some Emmet , he is amazing , but for me Will was the hole package , smart , great looking , steaming Hot , super clever , and damn funny ( which was a lot of the appeal for the character )

He is such a control freak, man-hore at the beginning that I found his personal growth, that much more appealing, he was unapologetically happy about his life stile with his schedule hookups and prearrange sex.

Will was the last of the bunch to be with out a significant other and that eventually was taking his toll.

Until his college friends asks him to help her sister Hanna in to a better social life, and here is where all happens because she comes to his life full of unexpected questions and challenges for Will, all in a pretty package that is sure to unravel him, because Ziggy is no longer a gangly teenage girl, she is all woman now!!

 

The fact that she was disarmingly genuine and funny and surprisingly pretty shouldn’t have thrown me so dramatically.

 

  Ziggy/ Hanna, was such a delight to read, she was funny as all hell, and had absolutely no brain to mouth filter which is a trait that I personally love in all my friends, she was such a cheerful character, discovering the delights of single life outside of a cold sterile lab, and realizing the power of a woman’s body.

beautifull player

 This story is passionate (some scenes are so hot, I mean very hot in the way that they get you all tingly after a few lines) and very tender too, it is a story about discovering your true feelings and realizing that at some point you need more in life than security and that you may need a deeper connection to someone, it revolves around the sense of finding your true home in someone that has been there for many year and you didn’t even see It coming.

Hanna is as curios as they come, with a childlike view at times, she approaches everything head on, but when she realizes that her feeling may be a bit more complicated than she expected, Will has been the lead character of her secret dreams for so long that the friends with benefits / mentor line get a lot blurry as time goes by for them.

So obviously things get a little hard for her and her original plan to learn from the master mind of seduction and leave unharmed.

 Secret agent. Like a Ninja. Learn from the best.

 

On the other hand will is discovering feelings that he has trouble admitting even to him self

he realizes that he needs more than what his schedule hookups are giving him , and Hanna may be the perfect mach for him in all things , which scare the shit out of him.

We get to see a lot of the other character during this book and we learn many thing from them (which are obviously little nips from the future books to come)

Like I said before this series is as good as they come this lady’s are geniuses at their stuff!! I can’t say enough how good every book they have written is …  This is my personal favorite , but I can assure you that which ever you pick up you will love ( no pun intended!)

I do recommend that they should be read in order because they have kind of a story line that has many spoilers if you do not follow the timeline.

So just go read it you won’t regret it!!!

4 Y MEDIO

Dirty Rowdy Thing (Wild Seasons #2) by Christina Lauren

21411902

BOOK: Dirty Rowdy Thing (Wild Seasons #2)by Christina Lauren

MY RATING: 4 STARS

SYNOPSIS

Despite their rowdy hookups, Harlow and Finn don’t even like each other…which would explain why their marriage lasted only twelve hours. He needs to be in charge and takes whatever he wants. She lives by the Want-something-done? Do-it-yourself mantra. Maybe she’s too similar to the rugged fisherman—or just what he needs.

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT TI 

Mmmm where to begin , I’ve loved everything that the Cristina Lauren team Has written , but the Wild season is taking firmly the lead !!

when I read Sweet Filthy boy, I was in love, I still am , Ansel was the most fun and tender , creative , caring lover… so naturally I was sure that Finn was not going to measure up… but boy was I wrong on that one..

( I loooooved the fact that we get to see some Ansel and Mia in their marital bliss, they are so happy!!!)

Finn and Harlow !!! holly hot mess!! they where fighting all the time and even do the witty banter was fun I felt that there was something more there from the get go…

Finn, rough edges fisherman, was amazing to read , let’s agree that he was kind os an asshole at first, but it’s the change in him that makes it all so much worth it in the end , you can tell how much he felt for Harlow . he was a good guy , hard-working and with simple dreams ( wich made me love him even more )

And Harlow , there wasn’t a clear idea of how she was in the first book , we knew she was a fierce friend and that she was kind of a meddler, but now we know that she is a fixer , and that she is a great person who gives everything she has for the people she loves.

FINN HARLOW

When Harlow and Finn get together its explosive , they lose them selves in the physicality of the relationship , both of them  with problems that they don’t want to confront ,are looking for an easy scape but they found something that they weren’t expecting to find,

“I’ve never met anyone like her, as strong-willed as me and yet, just handing me everything, letting me take her apart one touch at a time.”

“These red marks that tell the room and the sky and the swollen moon outside for only a tiny trip of time: I belong to him. My body is his.”

the sex scenes where Dam hot , I mean the rope thing!!! Holy smokes!!!….. it wasn’t bondage per se… but that just made it more real to me… it was a need that they had for control and there was no label required.

“He could only do rowdy because he felt what I felt: that whip-crack unleashing that comes when you meet the person who frees you”

Dirty rowdy thing

and don’t even get me stated with the Dirty talk , because he was so great at that ….I can even …  (SIGH) …

THESE WILD SEASON BOYS ARE VERY NAUGHTY AND GOOD AT DIRTY TALK…

I don’t want o give to much of the plot away but I just have to tell you that this as always did not disappoint , it was a super fast read , because i just didn’t want to let the book go.

I must say a can’t think of a way to make Oliver sexier that these two previous boys , so im eager to see how that goes

well i must say first  that I’m in love with Finn, second that I may be moving to Canada, because those fishermen do sound nice! and third this book was awesome I love it .

Sweet Filthy Boy (Wild Seasons #1)by Christina Lauren

18775297

BOOK: Sweet Filthy Boy (Wild Seasons #1)by Christina Lauren

MY RATING: 4 STARS

SYNOPSIS

One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like him.

But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation—and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out—Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume—her sweet, filthy fling—to France for the summer and just…play.

When feelings begin to develop behind the provocative roles they take on, and their temporary masquerade adventures begin to feel real, Mia will have to decide if she belongs in the life she left because it was all wrong, or in the strange new one that seems worlds away.

MY THOUGHTS  ABOUT IT 

Since I’ve just started reading “Dirty Rowdy Boy”  I decide to go down memory lane and remember Sweet Filthy Boy , the first book from Christina Lauren’s Wild season .

If a I remember correctly I was finishing the las of the beautiful series, when I stumble across an excerpt of this book , and I actually didn’t Know what to think of it … so I decides to give it a try.

That was a smart choice… the book was very good , I like it so much That it stayed with me for quite some time.Tthe story was great it really sucked me in from the get go!

The start of the book was epic!! the friends where hilarious, but the thing that strike me the most was Ansel, he seemed like a very smooth very sexy character and I was hooked…

Mia Holland is just graduated , and is out to Vegas with her friends , there she meets this  beautiful  and very sexy french guy who aparently is very into her  …  his name is Ansel … (swoon). They have drinks , hit it off and suddenly she decides to do everything she never does , and goes all out

Ansel and Mia

“I want to love all of my life as much as I love this night.

… All is fine and great untill they wake up the next morning …  and they remember  that everyone got married.

Ansel was amazing , so  great , he is super hot ,and he’s pretty funny too….

“You should see him with his shirt off.”

“Ansel rocks on his heels, sipping his drink. “Please continue as if I”m not here. This is fantastic.”

Unlike the other couples they feel an instant connection , and after Ansel ask’s her to go to france for the summer , and a few other things that happened to her , she takes a chance  a big one!!

“We’re married for the summer. Summer marriages don’t get dragged down in heavy stuff.”

From that moment  on everything will change for both of them , feelings start to get deeper and more complex.

Mia is finding a new side of her self by Ansel’s side and they are smoking hot together ,and Ansel is showing her more adult side ,but in a very sexy way…

sweet filthy boy

“It’s weird, maybe, that I love your scar as much as I do.”

I have to remind myself to breathe.

“You thought it was the first thing I noticed, but it wasn’t. I didn’t even pay attention to it until the middle of the night, when you finally lay down on the bed and I kissed from your toe to your hip. Maybe you hate it, but I don’t. You earnedit. I’m in awe of you.”

Ansel and Mia has such sweet connection , and he had such a dirty mouth , i love it !! and Mia clearly did to, the chemistry was so strong between these two, the sex was very passionate but always felt so full of longing and feelings , it made me feel so happy for them.

“I love to taste you, do you notice?”

I curl my hands into fists around the pillowcase.

“I think this sweetness is just for me. I pretend your desire has never been like this.” He dips a finger inside and brings it up to my lips. “For everyone else it was never so silky

and sweet. Tell me it’s true.”

sfb

For a long time  Ansel was ( and still is) one of my beloved book boyfriends , with his french love words ans his sexy dirty talk…

lets see how Finn Holds up in the next book.

It was a really good read!!!
