The all-new scorching sequel to Beautiful Bastard!
A charming British playboy. A girl determined to finally live. And a secret liaison revealed in all too vivid color.
Escaping a cheating ex, finance whiz Sara Dillon’s moved to New York City and is looking for excitement and passion without a lot of strings attached. So meeting the irresistible, sexy Brit at a dance club should have meant nothing more than a night’s fun. But the manner—and speed—with which he melts her inhibitions turns him from a one-time hookup and into her Beautiful Stranger.
The whole city knows that Max Stella loves women, not that he’s ever found one he particularly wants to keep around. Despite pulling in plenty with his Wall Street bad boy charm, it’s not until Sara—and the wild photos she lets him take of her—that he starts wondering if there’s someone for him outside of the bedroom.
Hooking up in places where anybody could catch them, the only thing scarier for Sara than getting caught in public is having Max get too close in private.

My Person's Books review
Christina Lauren have topped themselves with Beautiful Stranger, first we had Bennett and then they brought us Max holy hell this man will make you swoon, leaving you to pick up your jaw from the ground. He is a sweet as he is sexy!
Sara is just getting over her breakup with her fiancé, a man who has had numerous affairs for most of their relationship. Her confidence has been knocked and she doesn't have a lot of trust in men. She’s on her way to New York to start fresh, is starting her new job as the Director of Finance at Ryan Media; working with her best friend Chloe. A new life…a new Sara.
Her first night out in NYC she goes out to a nightclub with her two best friends and meets a deliciously sexy Brit. With some liquid courage she flirts, on the dance floor with his eyes on her she is feeling sexy dancing knowing that he is watching.
Max Stella is a successful British businessman, he is the cities playboy. Well known in the city his playboy ways always appear on page six of the Post. Having been given the brush off he can't seem to take his eyes off of Sara. On this particular night, caution is thrown to the wind, these two strangers remain strangers and engage in one hot adventurous night together.
“When you smile at me like that, I want to climb you. And God knows it's been forever since I've been properly manhandled.”
“And something tells me you could more that do the job - I mean, holy hell, look at you”
Crossing paths again the spark from their last meeting leaves them wanting more. Sara doesn't want a relationship, but she wants more of the man who has blown her mind. An agreement is set up, every Friday they will meet, a different location and time, no beds or limos…
“I’m not interested in being anyone's play-thing right now.”
“I believe I'm asking to be yours.”
Sara is a closet exhibitionist and Max quickly clicks on leaving him even hotter for her, wanting to fulfill her fantasies. Max and Sara become very adventurous all over NYC while he is slowly fulfilling her fantasies, while sticking to the rules of their agreement. You may want to fan yourself down...
Arrangements like these are never simple, feelings happen and that casual fling you wanted, you realise you want so much more.
We love this series is told in dual POV giving us an insight into Max, the man can make you swoon! If you liked BB you are going to love BS.
Very enjoyable read. Couldn't put it down!
