A charming British Playboy. A girl determined to finally live. And a secret liaison revealed in all too vivid color. Book two in the NYT Bestselling series.
Escaping a cheating ex, finance whiz Sara Dillon's moved to New York City and is looking for excitement without a lot of strings attached. So meeting the irresistible, sexy Brit at a dance club should have meant nothing more than a night's fun. But the manner--and speed--with which he melts her inhibitions turns him from a one-time hookup and into her Beautiful Stranger.
The whole city knows Max Stella loves women, not that he's ever found one he particularly wants to keep around. Despite pulling in plenty with his Wall Street bad boy charm, it's not until Sara--and the wild photos she lets him take of her--that he starts wondering if there's someone for him outside of the bedroom.
Hooking up in places where anybody could catch them, the only thing scarier for Sara than getting caught in public is having Max get too close in private. -Goodreads
Somehow the authors of the breakout erotic romance "Beautiful Bastard" have manged to hit another one straight out of the literary ballpark with "Beautiful Stranger".
Sara Dillion is a veteran in the war of love and her heart has the scars to prove it. So when she moves to New York to start over, she decides that this time..."It's all about the fun!"
Max Stella has it all: the looks, money, the connections and the girls. In fact, getting the ladies is so easy for this bodacious Brit, that he has become famous for it.
When a torrid encounter in a nightclub puts Sara in his sights, Max has to find his lovely "Petal".
And when he does...
This book is a scorcher from the start. Sara takes a very strong lead in this book, in both action and the making of the rules their game is played by. This in no way means that Max was a pushover in any sense.
He holds his ground in a very smooth way.
If you expected the further adventures of Ryan and Chloe this time around; you will be in for quite a shock.
This book is all about Sara and Max with only minor tie-ins to the lovebirds from the previous read.
This book is a fun sexploration of the world of exhibitionism. Readers will love following the daring duo as they tread the ever deepening waters of lust and love, while trying to steer clear the traps of a media fishbowl.
This book manages to be extremely sexy, while not forgetting to add in likeable characters, and a well written plot that provides unexpected twists and turns with it's titillation.
