Series: Beautiful Bastard #3.6
Published by Pocket Star on February 2, 2015
Genres: Contemporary, Erotica
The seventh work in the New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling series that started with the Beautiful Bastard, Beautiful Stranger, and Beautiful Player novels. Featuring all the Beautiful characters...plus one tiny new addition to the group.
In Beautiful Stranger , finance whiz Sara Dillon met the irresistibly sexy Brit, Max Stella, at a New York City club. Through the series we’ve watched them learn to balance commitment with their less than private brand of playfulness. In Beautiful Beloved, Max and Sara take it to the next step. But the question is: Will they be able to find a balance between the wild sexcapades they aren’t ready to retire, and the demands of parenthood that come along with their new Beautiful bundle of joy? Parenthood: it’s not for the weak of heart.
This was a very sweet story about a couple navigating the waters of new parenthood and trying to find a balance between the quick, but satisfying romp in the sheets and the all-night kinky sex session at their beloved BDSM club. Though part of a long-standing series, BEAUTIFUL BELOVED can be read as a stand-alone, but I get the feeling that the experience would have been much better had I read the previous installments in this series.
The emotional aspects of this novella really pack a punch – I was so touched by Max’s expressions of his love for Sara that I cried actual tears! But never fear – the more kinky sides of Max and Sara come out to play too, which really heat up the pages.
I loved everything about this novella. The deep connection and love between Max and Sara, the wild kinky sex, great secondary characters whom I’m eager to learn more about – I just wish this novella was longer so all of these great elements could be explored further!
