The seventh work in the New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling series that started with the Beautiful Bastard, Beautiful Stranger, and Beautiful Player novels. Featuring all the Beautifulcharacters...plus one tiny new addition to the group.
In Beautiful Stranger , finance whiz Sara Dillon met the irresistibly sexy Brit, Max Stella, at a New York City club. Through the series we’ve watched them learn to balance commitment with their less than private brand of playfulness. In Beautiful Beloved, Max and Sara take it to the next step. But the question is: Will they be able to find a balance between the wild sexcapades they aren’t ready to retire, and the demands of parenthood that come along with their new Beautiful bundle of joy? Parenthood: it’s not for the weak of heart.
“You’re shirtless with the world’s sweetest baby cuddled on those muscles. Put a shirt on, you beast, or I can’t be held responsible for my actions.”
4.5 sweet and steamy stars
This book makes me want to get knocked up all over again – as long as it was Max Stella doing the job. I swear, if you’ve never wanted to be impregnated by Max, this is the book that will do it! God damn! As if the sexy Brit wasn’t amazing enough, his protectiveness love and utter adoration of his wife and their new baby is something to behold, and it made me fall in love with him all over again.
This book is set four months after the birth of Max and Sara’s daughter, and shows the new parents in love with their new baby, and trying to get their groove back as husband and wife.
I’d been so focussed on enjoying Sarah the mother, that I’d barely let myself enjoy Sarah, the woman.
I love these two together. They still share an easy, teasing relationship, and they haven’t lost any of their passion for each other, it’s just the practicality of it that they’re having trouble with as they juggle the demands of a baby with trying to find time together.
She’d missed seeing me like this, I knew. She’s missed seeing me obsessed and hungry to claim, seeing me overcome and wild.
This little novella is steamy as all hell. Even married with a baby, Max and Sara are still mad with lust for each other, and still needing that extra edge to their sex life that they find with exhibitionism. Even their ‘almost’ situations are crazy hot. But it’s also beautifully sweet as we see them in their role as parents, and working hard to be everything they can to each other.
“I want to be the husband you need again … knowing I’m giving you what you need.”
“What I need?”
“What we need.”
There’s some Bennet and Chloe, and Will and Hanna (love them), and as a bonus, we also get to meet Max’s brother, Niall, hero of the next book. His backstory is interesting, and I cannot wait to get to know him better.
This is a must read for fans of the series. Sweet, swoony, funny and super steamy. I loved it.
