THE ROMANTIC TIMES BOOK OF THE YEAR that Sylvia Day called "a sexy, sweet treasure of a story. I loved every word." When three besties meet three hot guys in Vegas anything can--and does--happen. Book One of the New York Times bestselling Wild Seasons series from the author of the Beautiful Bastard series. One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren't supposed to be with someone like him. But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation--and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out--Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume--her sweet, filthy fling--to France for the summer and just...play. When feelings begin to develop behind the provocative roles they take on, and their temporary masquerade adventures begin to feel real, Mia will have to decide if she belongs in the life she left because it was all wrong, or in the strange new one that seems worlds away.… (mer)

I loved this. It was sweet and hot and had a real couple having real discussions. I really hate it when the "conflict" in a story comes about solely due to lack of communication. It was refreshing to have a couple talk through a problem rather than having one of them run away or make a ton of assumptions. How grown-up! ( )

This started out as a group buddy read on Instagram, but for the life of me I couldn't get into the story. I didn't like Ansel or Mia and thought they were both very flat characters. I put the book down for a few weeks, and when I picked it back up again I had no idea what the actual story was about. (Was there even a story???) I just remembered them having a lot of sex. I tried starting over and reading it again, but I think it was actually worse the second time around.

As for the sex itself, Ansel and Mia tried a little light BDSM with some roleplay. I'm sure it was supposed to be sexy and romantic, but the only thing those scenes elicited from me was laughter. I couldn't take either of them seriously. She smudged his windows? Really? (They should have addressed Ansel's obsessive need for cleanliness before making her handprints a super big deal.) The entire thing was just really awkward. The weirdness was only amplified when Ansel said that his mother used to be a maid, which is the very thing Mia decided to wear in order to get herself in the mood. (She has to mentally prepare herself - get into a role and out of her head - in order to orgasm.) Like, that's what you chose to lead with afterwards, Ansel? Your mom was also a maid? Was it supposed to be a wonderfully weird coincidence? His comment made the entire thing feel super gross. She couldn't have been a sexy doctor or something instead?

Mia was also incredibly boring. I get that her relationship with Ansel was new and they wanted to explore what they were to each other, but she could have made her own friends, gotten a part-time job, or done something other than sightseeing if she really wanted to enjoy her summer. Personally, I would have been delighted to see Paris on a whim, but she doesn't seem grateful for the opportunity. Ansel also should have done more to be present while she was there, but he's always working. It was obnoxious. It's was also obvious he's hiding something (like when someone showed up unexpectedly to his apartment in the middle of the night), so I skimmed ahead to see what it was. The "big reveal" was annoying, and his lie by omission wasn't worth the effort he put in to keep it maintained. Additionally, it should have been a big Red Flag when Ansel never wanted her to meet his friends, specifically the three people he said knew him better than anyone else.

Secrets and withheld information are two tropes that I hate. Just have an honest conversation with your wife, if you really want to establish roots and get to know her. I'm also not sure what Mia's issue was with her dad, and wish that had been explored more from the start instead of haphazardly mentioned throughout the book. The story was shallow, the characters dull and uninteresting, and there was waaaay too much sex and too little conversation. Don't get me wrong - I love sexy times - but it was the only thing they did. When Ansel got home from work, they didn't go anywhere or do anything together, they just had more sex. If you ask me, their relationship was unhealthy and didn't always feel consensual. (★★☆☆☆)

Mmm. I like Christina Lauren books, but I'm starting to see a pattern with the heroines - they are all in, then doubt themselves and doubt their lovers. Sometimes as a plot line it works and sometimes it is a little illogical. In Roomies Holland can't seem to read Cal; she can't trust what he tells her, but there doesn't seem to be a substantial reason why not, it comes off as just a plot device. In Sweet Filthy Boy, like Roomies, I find the young heroines are bold but not brave, The progress of the budding relationships seems to rest almost entirely with the heroes. The women's ability to communicate with their lovers is bizarrely stunted. To me, the men come off remarkably well for managing to get the lovers over their hurdles. If it was left to the women, then heaven help us. I know this is a probably a stereotypical romance approach, and purely fictional, I feel discouraged about women after these two latest Christina Lauren reads! so perhaps I enjoyed the few I've read in the Beautiful Bastard series more. I kept wishing we could skip to Ansel's narration, to know what was in his head, like we did in the Beautiful Bastard series - alternating voices of the male and female leads. That really works for these kind of intense relationship novels. I have to admit that I wasn't sure what the word 'filthy' means in the context of this book or Ansel! He is 'dreamboat man' personified - as was Cal in Roomies - quite a different kind of man from the Beautiful Bastard series.

I did not enjoy Shayna Thibodeaux's narration. For me it didn't match Mia's profile at all. I feel bad saying this but it is not a pleasant, easy-to-listen to voice. And yet she does a terrific job with Ansel's tone and is probably pivotal to creating that character for the person who assorbs this book as an audiobook. ( )

Warning: review written in app, so not my best work. May edit later if I remember :)

I had a bit of trouble getting into the book in the beginning, but after a little while I actually really did like it, though it's very sex orientated and doesn't have a whole lot of story to it.
I would have liked it if they actually spent nice days together without the massive amounts of sex.

I did like Ansel and Mia, but they remained a little too 'flat' for me to really love them. There was a part near the end that I didn't enjoy, but it didn't ruin the story for me.

Because of all of these things combined I'm giving it 4 stars. A solid read and I'll most likely read the next books in the series. ( )

The day we officially graduate from college is nothing like how it's depicted in movies. I throw my cap in the air and it comes down and cracks someone in the forehead.
