Review: Beautiful Beloved (Beautiful Bastard #3.6) by Christina Lauren

Beautiful Beloved

Beautiful Beloved (Beautiful Bastard #3.6)

by Christina Lauren

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 Beautiful 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.

5 out of 5 stars

I loved this so much! It made me so happy to read and I'm pretty sure I smiled the whole time. 

I loved getting to see Max and Sara again and meet their adorable baby. My heart was bursting. This was told from dual POV’s and it made me extremely happy to catch up on everything with them. Daddy Max is the sweetest, sexiest thing ever! I loved this story of them being together after having the baby, working out their new life as a family and getting back to them. It was so relatable. The internal dialogue in relation to grown-up-alone-time and being tired was perfect. There were so many times in this I laughed out loud, it was freaking hysterical in parts. At one point I had tears in my eyes because I couldn't stop laughing.

I loved that all my favorite Beautiful people were in this and it was great getting to see everyone. The men around the baby was pretty spectacular. I loved how Will was with her, so precious. I loved George in this, he just added to the fun. 

As fun and entertaining as this was, it was also extremely sweet and loving. There were some really true moments that brought a nice level of emotion to everything. It was just wonderful. Along with that sweet, was the chemistry that Max and Sara have that pulls you into their relationship. This story was also pretty darn sexy! It definitely had that added Max and Sara hotness and kink factor that I love.

Niall, Max’s brother, was introduced in this story and he seems like the biggest sweetheart. I am super excited for his story and to fall in love with a new Beautiful man. Up next, Beautiful Secret
Another wonderful story from the dynamic duo of Christina Lauren. A fun and delightful read, topped off with just the right amount of sexy!  5 beautiful stars!

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.
