It just might be this summer's 50 Shades of Grey. The Beautiful series starts out with Beautiful Bastard. Actually, they are a writing duo, Lauren and Christina who definitely enjoy each other's company when it comes to writing romance for the modern girl.
Okay, what’s with the trend of pulling fanfiction, publishing it, and pass it off as something original? First Cassandra Clare, then E.L. James and suddenly, an explosion of mindless knockoffs attack the publishing industry with their literary-herpes infection.
IT. JUST. WON’T. GO. AWAY.
Just like herpes, there’s no cure but it is treatable. Unfortunately, no one wants to do anything about that. So it will keep spreading and spreading until it completely dominates the publishing industry and aspiring writers with ORIGINAL fiction will be rejected and be kicked off to the streets.
The simple thought of that sickens me.-Complicated
The story is about Isabella Swan and Edward Cullen—Oops, my bad!—Chloe Mills and Bennett Ryan. Chloe works as an intern for Ryan, one of the most successful businessman. And here’s the catch: He is a bastard. A beautiful bastard.
The book starts with Chloe complaining (and at the same time fawning over) about Bennett’s assholeness. But, OMG! He is hot! Like it matters!
Bennett then calls Chloe to his office and HE PULLS HER ON HIM AND THEN THEY RIP EACH OTHER’S CLOTHES!! ON THE VERY FIRST CHAPTER!!
If the story could have ended right there, the story would have made more sense. Unfortunately, it was extended WAAAY too much and the plot became repetitive and boring.-Complicated
Naturally, this series is going to find a lot of fans. Not matter what. Its handy to pick up a copy at Target among other places. And the price is pretty sweet on your e-reader too. If you need a guilty pleasure well..here it is and the authors just keep popping them out like bunnies.
