The New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Bastard, Beautiful Stranger, and Beautiful Player starts a brand new story of friends, love, and lust with Book One of the Wild Seasons 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.
4.5 Sweet, Filthy Stars!
I have read (and loved) Christina Lauren's Beautiful Bastard and I was hoping that Sweet Filthy Boy would live up to the great story, heat and characters that I fell in love with when I first discovered this dynamic duo of writers... and it did! While I am not the biggest fan of reading about characters in college (or fresh out of college) I made the exception for Christina Lauren and I am VERY glad I did!
Sweet Filthy Boy starts with Mia (our main heroine) graduating college and having a last wild weekend in Vegas with her best girlfriends. As many of us know, What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas, or does it? Now even though the beginning of this story was predictable it was great reading and once the story really gets started when Mia and Ansel agree to a summer together in France I couldn't put this book down. The chemistry, humor, wit and emotion that Christina Lauren infuses their stories with is really special and kept me turning the pages well into the night.
Sweet Filthy Boy kept me glued to each page and gave the experience of being in Paris, living through Mia's experiences in the city. I really enjoyed both of these characters. Mia was a bit rigid and was pushing herself into a mold her father expected of her not what her heart longed for. Watching her struggle to be who she was meant to be was inspiring and hard to read at time at the same time (the urge to shake the girl was strong at times). Ansel was the perfect balance to Mia. He was focused, had a plan and was both crazy hot, sweet and dirty (even though he could be a bit shy at times). Ansel makes me want to fly to France get my own sweet, filthy boy!
Christina Lauren created a new series that will go far! The characters they created have great chemistry and are people I want to know more about! Wait! Don't worry this series while connected, each book is a individual story (with cross-over characters I hope!), no cliffhangers. Christina Lauren knows how to write a story that is fun, creative, HOT and emotional all rolled up into a fantastic story about two people who are going through life trying to find themselves but along the way they find each other too.
If you are a fan of the Beautiful Bastard series, you will love getting out of the corporate world and going to France as we watch Ansel and Mia fall in love. If you have have never read a Christina Lauren book before you are in for a treat! Sweet Filthy Boy is like a modern day fairy-tale about two people who have instant chemistry and take the chance to see where the spark lead. I can't wait for the next book in this series, Christina Lauren books are auto-buy books for sure!
I have to say that all of Christina's books have been a home-run but Sweet Filthy Boy was a grand slam!!!! It was the perfect balance of seduction, love and all of life's ups and downs that a lot of writers sometimes forget to write about. I loved Ansel from the beginning and Mia quickly pulled me in the story so I could experience all of the emotions with her! BRAVO !!! I can hardly wait for Harlow's story!!
Same great writing...
...very different story but I loved it!! The characters were interesting and the love story was sweet and dirty at the same time. Christina Lauren does it again!
