Recommended Read: The Beautiful Bastard Series by Christina Lauren

The Beautiful Bastard Series by Christina Lauren is fantastic and one of my all time favorites. There’s a great combination of sexy and funny mixed with heartfelt moments and bits of drama. Excellent characters, well developed stories with a great pace throughout. I loved each and every one. Each book is completely standalone but the stories have interconnecting characters. Every time I read one, I feel like I have a new favorite. As far as those Beautiful Men go, they’re all pretty fantastic but Player Will has a special place in my heart. ;-)

Note: I am listing the books in the authors recommended order but feel free to read them in whatever order you would like. I personally recommend going in the suggested reading order. I think it’s more fun that way as characters get introduced and you can see their progression throughout the overall series.


About the Author

Christina Lauren

Christina Lauren is the combined pen name of long-time writing partners/besties/soulmates and brain-twins, Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings. They are the authors of several Young Adult and Adult Fiction titles. Some of their books have kissing. Some of their books have A LOT of kissing.


Lauren Billings (but everyone calls her Lo) has a Ph.D. in neuroscience and before she made writing her full-time job, would spend her days doing nerdy research-type things wearing a lab coat and goggles. She is silly Mommy to two littles, wife to one mountain biking home brewing scientist, bestie to a shoe-stealer, and an unabashed lover of YA and romance.


Christina Hobbs (but you’ll always hear Lo call her PQ) used to spend her days in a junior high counseling office surrounded by teenagers. Married to the cutest boy in school, she has a thirteen year old daughter, is an unapologetic lover of boy bands and glitter, and also likes to steal Lo’s shoes.

Dear Reader,


I am officially starting a new feature on my blog showcasing Series Recommendations and it’s called Recommended Read. Either the series is complete and I’ve read them all or it’s an ongoing series and I am up to date with the latest release. No matter what, these will be books that I LOVE and HIGHLY recommend with characters that I just can’t let go. If it’s an ongoing series, I’ll update the appropriate page after the newest release has been read and reviewed.

What better way to start off than with one of my very favorite, must-buy authors. The dynamic duo of Christina Lauren! I pretty much drop everything to read their work, so I figured it was a good place to start. :-)


I hope you enjoy the new feature!


Thank you so much for your support,




Beautiful Bastard
