Beautiful Secret (Beautiful Bastard #4) by Christina Lauren
AN UPTIGHT BRITISH EXECUTIVE. AN ADVENTUROUS AMERICAN NEWBIE. A SEXY INTERNATIONAL SCANDAL IN THE MAKING.
New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling author Chritina Lauren's Beautiful and Wild Seasons series hook up in Beautiful Secret for an erotic intercontinental romp that celebrates the best of both worlds!
When Ruby Miller’s boss announces he’s sending her on an extended business trip to New York City, she’s shocked. As one of the best and brightest young engineers in London, she knows she’s professionally up to the task. The part that’s throwing her is where she’ll be spending a month up close and personal working alongside—and staying in a hotel with—Niall Stella, her firm’s top urban planning executive and The Hottest Man Alive. Despite her ongoing crush, Ruby is certain Niall barely knows she’s alive…until their flirty overnight flight makes him sit up and take notice.
Not one for letting loose and breaking rules, recently divorced Niall would describe himself as hopeless when it comes to women. But even he knows outgoing California-girl Ruby is a breath of fresh air. Once she makes it her mission to help the sexy Brit loosen his tie, there’s no turning back. Thousands of miles from London, it’s easy for the lovers to play pretend. But when the trip is over, will the relationship they've built up fall down?
I love Niall!! He is sophisticated, elegant, posh, commanding and absolutely gorgeous.
"Niall Stella, Vice President, Director of Planning, and Holy Hell, The Hottest Man Alive"
"his suit was straight-up business porn."
But he's also reserved, gentle, old fashioned, and his vision of love and intimacy has been skewed by years in a ho-hum marriage.
"Niall Stella was polite, brilliant, refined, and contained, yes, but Niall Stella was capable of being a guy, and he was a total flirt."
Ruby is funny, outgoing, and spunky. Her antics and inner monologue had me laughing out loud!!
Ruby has been secretly crushing on 'Mr. Stella' for months. Around him she's a tongue tied, fumbling mess... but it doesn't really matter. Why? Because he doesn't even know she exists! When the two of them get tasked for a trip to NYC together, Ruby goes into a panic. How will she keep herself from committing verbal diarrhea?? Actually, she can't.. and she will have you laughing hysterically!
When Niall finally notices Ruby, and it's hard not to, he starts to second guess every decision he's every made. Every action of his past. Has he been living his life the way he was meant to?
Ruby is a breath of fresh air. They have amazing chemistry and the sparks that fly are electrifying!!
This story is told in dual pov and you'll also be happy to know that the characters from both the previous Beautiful Bastard books as well as the Wild Seasons are either present or mentioned!
