The gentlemen from Beautiful Bastard, Beautiful Stranger, and Beautiful Player are out for a wild night on The Strip.

When Max, Henry, and Will steal Bennett away for a weekend of shenanigans and strippers in Vegas, the first stop of the night doesn’t go at all as planned. With their scheme for a Guys Weekend completely derailed anyway, Max and Bennett begin to play a wild game of stealth and secrecy in order to have their bombshells all over Sin City.


My review:

Beautiful Bombshell is the novella that follows Max Stella’s book, Beautiful Stranger, and leads us into Will Sumner’s book, Beautiful Player.  I am a huge fan of this series and like all the other books in this series; Beautiful Bombshell kicked some major ass!

Bennett and Chloe are getting married and of course, that calls for a bachelor party trip.  Somewhere the guys can go to let loose, party till all hours of the night, see some beautiful half-naked women, and eat meals fit for kings…..in other words, Sin City! Sadly for the ladies attached to these men, the only weekend that worked for all of the guys was Valentine’s Day weekend.  Lucky for Bennett and Max, Chloe and Sarah seem to take it in stride and give them the green light for a weekend filled with bachelor shenanigans and let them off the hearts-and-flowers Valentine’s hook….little to the guys know their women have a few surprises in store for them when they arrive in Vegas.  Let the real fun begin….

I freaking adored this novella!  The dynamic between Bennett and Max is just so utterly enjoyable and their personalities play so well off of one another.  Max had me laughing out loud so many times throughout the story.  From his cheeky comments to his hilarious stunts, I was totally reminded just how much I loved him from Beautiful Stranger.  Bennett isn’t thrilled about being in Vegas but eventually lets loose a bit and ends up having a weekend he won’t soon forget.  I was also reminded of the guy that drew me in from the first chapter of Beautiful Bastard and how much I love him and the very opposing sides to his personality.  Hard yet soft, firm but gentle.  The true allure to these guys, in my opinion, is how Christina Lauren writes them both.  They are powerful and successful men and can handle themselves with the biggest of bigwigs in the business and corporate worlds but are completely owned by their women and relationships.  These guys will do anything to make sure their women are always happy and have everything they desire.  Being a slave to their relationships is just so endearing and gives a facet to their personalities and makes the whole package a win.  It’s because of that charming quality that has both Bennett and Max as two of my all time fave book guys.

Oh, and I have to assure you all that even though the guys are away from their women, there were a few hot scenes that I was positively dying over.  Oh, my YUM! *fans self*

I also want to say that Will and Henry are fantastic additions to the debauchery that happens with this group. Good sports, those two!

I laughed, had many dreamy sigh moments, and fanned myself on more than one occasion.  Fans of the Beautiful Bastard Series will really enjoy this story and I cannot WAIT for Will’s story! Thank you, Christina Lauren, for more of our favorite bastards!
