An ambitious intern.
A perfectionist executive.
And a whole lot of name calling.
Whip-smart, hardworking, and on her way to an MBA, Chloe Mills has only one problem: her boss, Bennett Ryan. He's exacting, blunt, inconsiderate—and completely irresistible. A Beautiful Bastard.
Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family's massive media business. He never expected that the assistant who'd been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative—completely infuriating—creature he now has to see every day. Despite the rumors, he's never been one for a workplace hookup. But Chloe's so tempting he's willing to bend the rules—or outright smash them—if it means he can have her. All over the office.
As their appetites for one another increase to a breaking point, Bennett and Chloe must decide exactly what they're willing to lose in order to win each other.
Oh, man, this was an utterly fantastic book! Every word captivated me, and I just had to have more! I'm just so thankful that one of my Goodreads friends had a positive review that was in my feed, so I saw it, and thought it looked fantastic, and checked it out for myself! Because it was just so great!
Oh, the relationship between Chloe and Bennett, well, it's aggressive. It's not love at first sight or growing, but there's an attraction between us, but the both of use are going to fight tooth and nail to resist it! And oh, do they fight!
While their relationship-and everything it effects-is the main part of the story, there are also other things going on, like her dad, and the situation there. And then his family, because while that's connected to their relationship, well, there are some funny scenes there!
I really enjoyed how it ended! After all their fighting, resisting, that they're together, and as happy as they can be-but still that combative relationship that causes him to destroy her clothing and such, that is their love, and really works for them, yeah!
Such a great, fantastic book, and really can't wait for more!
