Back when not being able to stand each other also meant not being able to keep their hands off each other in Beautiful Bastard, neither Bennett nor Chloe could have seen this day coming.
An exasperated bride who just wants to elope. A determined groom whose only focus is getting to the wedding night. And—of course—a whole lot of name calling.
The gang’s back together for the wedding and it was really great seeing Max, Sara, Will and Hanna again. Max and Sara are still head over heels for each other and Sara is expecting their first child. Will gets a bit of payback in the form of a practical joke, with some pretty hilarious results. While I was happy to see everyone again, I am glad that the story did not focus too much on the other couples. As much as I love them, this was Chloe and Bennett’s story and I didn’t want to be distracted from it. That said, I full would fully support a novella for each of the other couples to finish out their stories as well (hint, hint).
If you’re a fan of Bennett and Chloe, I think you’re going to have fun with this one. I am really hoping that this isn’t the end but, even if it is, I am satisfied with Chloe and Bennett’s HEA. Very excited to see what Christina Lauren cook up next.
