Beautiful Stranger by Christina Lauren
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
WOW… YES 4 STARS
I’m glad I didn’t give up on the series, considering I gave Beautiful Bastard a not so glowing review. I was told I would like Beautiful Stranger more and YES I DO!!!!
Sara just got out of a relationship with her cheating ex. It really messed her up and she decides to have a fresh new start, by moving to NY and being with her best friend. Max is successful play boy Brit. He doesn’t do commitment, but when a beautiful stranger offers no strings attached sex, it’s difficult for Max to say no.
I really really really really really liked Beautiful Stranger. It’s a light, easy, short, no fuss story that is perfect for nice happy read. THANK GOD!
Sara is a little annoying, but I get why she’s so head-strong. Her ex did a number on her, she doesn’t want to put her heart out there. I would say Sara is kind of finding herself and kind of going through a mini life crisis. She’s a very proper professional finance woman during the day, but at night, she wants to cut loose and LOVES TO HAVE PUBLIC SEX. It was refreshing seeing such a strong dominate women who can have causal sex. I like it.
Max is cute and who doesn’t like an accent? I actually do like the way he speaks, it’s not total British slang, but the ones that are sprinkled here and there make sense and fit. I’m a bit sticker on this, so it worked out for me. Sara and Max make a deal to have sex every Friday, but never in a bedroom and they never sleep over. The plot really interested me and I really liked it.
I really enjoyed reading Max cashing Sara, it wasn’t a huge tug and pull, but enough to keep me reading. I couldn’t put the book down.
I feel like another author just wrote this book. It’s so polished, it’s so edited, I feel like THIS IS WHAT IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ALL ALONG!
I will move forward with the series.
