Reading progress update: I've read 57%.
Dating You/Hating You - Deacon Lee,Christina Lauren,Shayna Thibodeaux,Simon & Schuster Audio

Taking a break from this one. Although the title indicates the rocky relationship between the h/h, it doesn't go far enough to explain the animosity between the pair. There is simply too much Hating You and not enough Dating You for my enjoyment.

Wicked Sexy Liar by Christina Lauren $1.99
Wicked Sexy Liar - Christina Lauren

When three college besties meet three hot guys in Vegas, anything can—and does—happen. Book Four in the New York Times Wild Seasons series that began with Sweet Filthy Boy (the Romantic Times book of the year that Sylvia Day called “a sexy, sweet treasure of a story”), Dirty Rowdy Thing, and Dark Wild Night.

For two people ambivalent about dating and love, they sure get naked around each other an awful lot . . .

London Hughes is very content to surf daily, tend bar, hang out with her group of friends, and slowly orient herself in the years after college. Everything’s going great and according to the non-plan.

But when a wave knocks her for a loop one morning, then Luke Sutter’s flirtatious smile knocks her for another that evening, she veers slightly off course…and into his path. Sure, he’s a total player, but the Why not—it’s only one night is a persistent voice in her ear.

For his part, Luke’s been on hookup autopilot for so long that he rarely ever pauses to consider what he’s doing. But after an amazing time with London, he realizes that he hasn’t been moving on from a devastating heartbreak so much as he’s been drifting to wherever—and whomever—the current takes him. With London he wants more.

Every relationship involves two people…plus their pasts. And as much as she enjoys her fling with Luke, when London learns about his past—more specifically, who’s in it—everything becomes the brand of complicated she strives to avoid. It’s up to Luke then to change some things in order to try and ensure he’s not something she’ll outright avoid as well.

A Worthy Sendoff to the Beautiful Bastard Series
Beautiful (The Beautiful Series Book 10) - Christina Lauren

The gang’s all together one last time in this fifth full-length–and final–installment of the Beautiful Bastard series. *sob* And Christina Lauren pulled out all the stops for this one. Humor? Check. Heartfelt emotions? Check. Sizzling chemistry and naughty love scenes? Check and double-check!

 

“You’re beautiful, and only half as irritating as I initially thought.”
A laugh burst out of me. “You think I’m pretty?”
“I think you’re stunning.”
I chewed my lip, watching him.
A slow grin took over his face and he finally asked, “Do you think *I’m* pretty?”
Reaching behind me, I pulled a pillow free and lobbed it at him.

 

It’s rather hard to say goodbye to this group of characters after having followed their progression since book one, Beautiful Bastard. Each novel has been a journey all on its own, but these characters were all lovingly woven into each other’s lives, with us getting glimpses of them again and again along the way. This particular installment was a true reunion. Yes, we got to watch Jensen and Pippa fall in love (yay!) but couples Will & Hanna and Niall & Ruby were a huge part of the storyline too.

Dark Wild Night
Dark Wild Night - Christina Lauren This is one of those cute, adorable romances with likable characters (and plenty of sexy). I enjoyed the whole thing. Lola and Oliver are good people. They are best friends wanting more. Life gets in the way a bit, but they're mature enough to get it right before it goes too far. Dark Wild Night was definitely worth my time, and Oliver is great book boyfriend material.

A Couple of Years Old, But Still a Fantastic Read
Beautiful Player - Christina Lauren

‘Ziggy was Jensen’s sister. Ziggy was the kid I never knew.
Hanna was this uninhibited, self-possessed woman in front of me who I was pretty sure was going to effectively wreck my world.’

Beautiful Player was a terrific addition to the Beautiful Bastard series. Every new installment has me falling for this crazy-sexy group of friends all over again, waiting to see what hilarious and heartfelt situation they’ll find themselves in next.

“Get over your man-angst, Will. We had sex. You’re supposed to do this kind of thing better than anyone. I’m not asking for a key to your apartment.”

I love me some Christina Lauren. I admit I have a lot of favorite authors, but there’s no one who perfectly gets that combination of dirty, funny, heartwarming, stylish, and dirty (did I already mention that?) like they do. There’s a lot of substance to their storylines and a depth to the characters that makes them seem very realistic, like they could easily be a friend or coworker. That’s something that brings me back to this series every time because I feel invested in what happens to these entertaining people.
