The ninth work in the New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling series that started with Beautiful Bastard. In this novella, Will Sumner and Hanna Bergstrom (from Beautiful Player) find that a wedding and everlasting love were just the beginning.
One Player tamed. One nerd girl satisfied. And one more major life decision to make. When Will fell for Hanna, her quirky sense of humor and fierce dedication to her career were part of the attraction. (Not to mention her coy newbie attitude toward sex and her willingness to let him teach her everything.) But when the job offers start rolling in for her—and oh, they do—Hanna has trouble deciding what she wants, where they should live, and how much she should burden Will with the decision. Magic between the sheets is only one part of a relationship...getting on the same page is quite another altogether.
Somebody somewhere loves us obsessive, giddy romance readers very much to give us two Christina Lauren releases in one month. They have fast become my go-to for sexy, honest contemporary erotic romance, and with Beautiful Boss, we get a return peek at where Will and Hanna, hall of fame couple and huge fan favorites, find themselves just down the road where life is beyond the happily ever after and romance becomes real. Yes, we’re lucky indeed.
We’re back with the East Coast crowd, and what’s so great about the Beautiful novellas is how they show a true piece of real life in the everyday of couples we’ve come to fawn over. Being privy to these life moments with characters we feel like we know is one of the most special aspects to reading romance, and once again like the others, Beautiful Boss will bring you to tears as Will and Hanna tackle marriage and life change all at once.
I held her face in my hands, tilting it so I could kiss her. My lips met the tip of her nose first, before traveling south to their target. “There is no way to mess this up,” I said, right against her mouth. “Even if we didn’t get married tomorrow, you’re the love of my life. I’m with you until we both die, at the same time, when I am one hundred and you are ninety-three.”
Once they got their act together in Beautiful Player, blending their compatible scientific minds with a natural chemistry that’s always been right on point, things overall have been smooth goings for Will and Hanna. They love each other fiercely and have a connection that rivals many couples, and that was it. Even the wedding was easy, meant to be. But brilliant Hanna is being courted by prestigious institutions all over the world, and now she’s got a husband along for the ride. A supporting, encouraging husband who just wants to be part of the process. It’s something new again for these two, proving that no matter how much you love someone, adjusting to a life-long relationship is another lesson to be learned.
But in the process of figuring it out, we see more dimensions of Will and Hanna. And Jensen, who’s our next Beautiful hero, sums it up perfectly: “Holy shit, I don’t think seeing you two stumble through marriage will ever get old.” When it comes to Will and Hanna, no way.
