"In the third book in the Beautiful Bastard series, an agreement between a venture capitalist and a bookish woman quickly becomes a very NSFW version of My Fair Lady. When Hanna "Ziggy" Bergstrom moves to New York City for graduate school, Will Sumner thinks his responsibilities to his best friend's nerdy little sister will be limited to the occasional dinner and check-in. Little does he know that Ziggy is ready to break out of her bookworm academic shell and move more into bombshell territory. Of course she figures the gorgeous womanizing venture capitalist Will is the best person to help mentor her in this new field of study: dating. Will takes on the challenge with more than a healthy dose of skepticism and humor, but soon finds that Ziggy just needed a tiny push, not a world of change, to reveal a woman every man seems to notice. Soon "Ziggy" is gone and the unfiltered, innocently seductive Hanna Bergstrom is hijacking his dreams, his moods, and even his orderly no-strings-attached dating life--beginning the night his mentoring activities move between the sheets"--

Loved this book. Well written, believable plot/story line, easy dialogue. Will & Hanna are sweet, lovable mains trying to get it together & there's a host of lively secondary characters. And, some steamy sex! All around excellent.

Third time's the charm. This third book in the Beautiful Bastard series is the best of the bunch, so far. I really didn't think I would ever read beyond the first book, but then read Beautiful Stranger and the writing had improved greatly. The duo hit their stride with this one. Will and Hannah were a fabulous couple to follow and I loved getting some more of Max in the story as well.

The third book in the Beautiful series. Beautiful Player was sweet and funny and was the perfect blend of humour, love and seriousness. The characters were so relatable and sweet that you fall in love with them and you fall in love with this book, and you won't want to put it down until you finish it.

Loved this story! Hot! Better than 50 Shades. Will was lovely and Hanna, though immature, was cute!

I said it already and I will say it again. This series was written by two author who think all women are going to read this series and go goo-goo-gaga over all the explicit sex the characters had. I am not one of those women. This SISTER know a good PLOT / good STORY-LINE and HOT SEX when she reads it...and the other books in this series EXCLUDING this book need to go in my shredder . I am not saying this book was sooooo good I couldn't put it saying it was a better read compare to the others. Hanna and Will chose to have sex rather than talk about how the feel about each other. FYI most problems won't be solved by having sex. First you talk, then you have Hot make-up SEX! *WINK*WINK* I won't be reading anymore Christine Lauren books. FYI to people out there in the real world remember this. If you are having CASUAL SEX and you develop feelings for the person you are having sex with, don't get mad, he or she can't read your mind. Here are 3 things you can do...but before I say anything else remember honesty, 95 % of the time might keep you from getting hurt.....or you might end up with that special someone you just never know. Don't wait until you fall head over heals in love. #1 If you tell (he or she) how you feel, and they feel the same, then yippee! for you both....if the response is I don't feel the same......then keep it moving. # 2 You are not BLUNT STRAIGHT- FORWARD or BRAVE as the person in # 1. Your not going to say anything. Maybe you don't have to. I would ask why not? You are BRAVE enough to be having CASUAL SEX, if you can be BRAVE why not be honest. I understand....but please don't cry a river, and don't acted a fool. You don't have to say why,and you don't have to say how you feel...let this person know in the nicest way possible it's over. Remember no water works, suck it up and BOUNCE. Lady's don't do what the female character HANNA did, she act a fool because she couldn't be honest...and she was too far gone with her feeling for Will. Now your sex buddy might not want to let you go. A (he / she) might try to tell you how they feel like WILL did in this book but you might get SHUT DOWN it's okay SUCK IT UP AND GO. #3 (He or she) have feeling for each other....SEXUAL FEELING nothing else. (he or she) compliment each other in bed . The sex is off the CHART HOT, when it's over it's over no one one is going to tell you to grow a pair of LADY BALLS and stop crying....and him to GROW A SACK because he is p***y whip.( He or she )If you fit in #3 You don't play games ....and you are honest from the get go...that is what we need in our world today....people that are keeping it real!
