Featuring the entire BEAUTIFUL series cast for one final hurrah! A FREE-SPIRITED GIRL IN NEED OF A BREAK. A MAN WEIGHED DOWN BY RESPONSIBILITY. A ROAD TRIP VACATION WHERE ALL BETS ARE OFF. OH, AND A LOT OF WINE. After walking in on her boyfriend shagging another girl in their place, Pippa Bay Cox ditches London for the States to go on a drunken road trip with Ruby Miller and some of her Beautiful friends. Scaling the career ladder is the default way to deal with heartbreak--and to just deal--for Jensen Bergstrom. Absolutely buried by his drive and workload, he rarely takes time for himself. But when his sister Hanna convinces him to join the gang on a two-week wine tour, he has a rare moment of cutting loose. Of course, it's only once he's committed that he realizes the strange girl he met briefly on the plane is coming along, too. She might be too much for him...or he might realize his life has become too small and needs her to make it bigger, crazier. With this circle of friends there's always something going on: from Chloe and Sara's unexpected personality swaps to Will's new domestic side to Bennett's text message barrage and George's own happily-ever-after. In short, their adventures in love, friendship, and hilarity are nothing short of Beautiful.… (mer)

I really enjoyed "Beautiful" by Christina Lauren. This is the final book in the Beautiful Bastard series by this awesome writing duo. I've thoroughly enjoyed getting to know each of the characters and watch all their stories unfold with each book and novella along the way. The final two characters in this book, had an immediate impact on me and quickly rose to the top of my favorites in the series. Great finish and wrap up at the end. I look forward to what you come up with for a new series, hopefully soon!
Happy Reading...Enjoy!

Great end to an amazing series. Pippa and Jensen had the most different relationship of all of them, but not without the sexy, love and little bit of angst in there. Loved all of the different epilogues, though I have to confess that Bennett and Chloe will forever be my favorites. ( )

4.5 "Opposites Attract Ending in a Beautiful Conclusion" Stars for the story and 5 Stars for the narration!

Lovers of the Christina Lauren writer duo's splendid brand of romantic comedy will not want to miss this final installment in the Beautiful Bastard (BB) Series! Not only is the primary couple fun to watch--from the awkward and comical beginnings to their undeniable connection later in the book--but you also get a glimpse and some closure as to all the fabulous couples that have been featured in this series, not only throughout the book but also with each prior couple's very own Epilogue!

Pippa Bay Cox (Ruby's friend from Beautiful Secret) is not having much luck with men or work for that matter. Having terminated her last relationship after she found her boyfriend in her bed with another woman, she decides she desperately needs a "Holiday" (British speak for a vacation). So she boards a plane bound to Boston to visit with friends and do a road trip. On that plane, she decides to decompress with a little (well maybe more than a little) alcohol which leads to further loosening of this quirky heroine's tongue leading to some rather animated interactions with the decidedly hot guy sitting next her. Unfortunately the hot guy, the straight-laced, type A lawyer, Jensen Bergstrom (Hanna's brother from Beautiful Player), isn't quite as amused by her behavior as the listener.

So imagine Jensen's surprise when he finds out that not only is Pippa friends with his friends but they are actually all going together on a vacation road trip (one which Jensen's sister practically had to beg him to take as she is worried that all he does is work). How can he possibly survive 2 weeks on a road trip with the loud, quirky Pippa (and the tons of alcohol that is likely to be available on a wine tour)? However, as life's daily grind goes by the wayside, and the two start showing who they truly are down deep, they find that their glaring differences are actually quite complementary. But can their possibly be a future for the outlandish Pippa who lives in London (and sometimes dyes her hair pink!) and the straight-laced, Jensen who works at a big law firm in Boston?

Rounding out a splendid romance is the great narrator cast of Grace Grant and Sebastian York (along with cameos in the other couples' Epilogues from Jonathan Cole and Jeremy York). It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Sebastian York's, who is absolutely perfect for any sexy, romantic comedy. From Mr. York's timing on the delivery of the funny lines to his baritone voice which drips sex appeal, he makes listening to just about any type of romance effortless. Perhaps what I loved the most about this narration, however, was Grace Grant's rendition of Pippa which was absolutely spot-on! I loved her British accent and could easily envision the quirky, say whatever comes to your mouth, Pippa merely by Ms. Grant's voicing of Pippa.

All in all, Beautiful is a must listen for fans of the BB Series. However, due to the heavy influence of the prior characters, I highly suggest that you listen to this book only after reading or listening to at least most of the prior books in the series. For those of you that have, I'm sure that the addition of Pippa and Jensen to this series' cast of couples will have you in stitches and warming your heart.

The final novel in the contemporary romance series by the writing duo Christina Lauren is something for fans only as the cast of characters includes couples from the other books in the Beautiful series; and it's told in the authors' signature style of him/her POVs; but overall it's disappointing. The main couple just don't seem to have any real chemistry, and the sex scenes are pedestrian. The series ends with some sloppy, tired writing instead of a bang (ha!) ( )

BEAUTIFUL’s beginning didn’t wow me. Pippa and Jensen’s overtly serendipitous meet cute and subsequent awkward re-collision skewed a bit unbelievable, formulaic, and predictable. Additionally, the boisterous and mingling mob of past couples from the popular series and their intertwined histories weren’t easy to keep track of. Honestly, I gave up trying to retain the myriad of names and references to older plots. Instead, I focused on Pippa and Jensen. Thankfully, once their two-week adventure was underway, the character numbers manageably reduced, allowing for the story to take flight and for the fun to really begin.

And oh! What fun it was! Suddenly the so-so plot transformed into so, so unputdownable! Pippa and Jensen’s lust-filled romp kept getting better with every page. I stayed up until the early morning hours unable to stop until I found out what happened next—and, at the same time, willing it not to end! Wine, laughter, excitement, luminous friendships—new and old—delicious flirtation, and dizzying passion, Pippa and Jensen’s precious few weeks together are utter magic! Their friendship is fast but powerful. And their attraction explosive! Their torrid encounters, filled with raw emotion, affection, and wild abandon are scorchingly erotic, insanely enviable, and pure heaven to read!

More than just a character reunion, BEAUTIFUL is a joyously carousing, wonderfully romantic, and blistering-hot, stand-alone story to savor!
