Reading Group Rating: M for Mature

Personal Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars

Given Summary: The seventh work in the New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling series that started with the Beautiful Bastard, Beautiful Stranger, and Beautiful Player novels. Featuring all the Beautiful characters…plus one tiny new addition to the group.

In Beautiful Stranger, finance whiz Sara Dillon met the irresistibly sexy Brit, Max Stella, at a New York City club. Through the series we’ve watched them learn to balance commitment with their less than private brand of playfulness. In Beautiful Beloved, Max and Sara take it to the next step. But the question is: Will they be able to find a balance between the wild sexcapades they aren’t ready to retire, and the demands of parenthood that come along with their new Beautiful bundle of joy? Parenthood: it’s not for the weak of heart.

Cover: Keeping in tradition of their signature simple covers for their adult books, Christina and Lauren chose to capture a very pregnant Sara as their cover-girl.

Summary: Max and Sara are parents!!  And all they want is one night alone.  They try to have George babysit, but that date was a disaster.  Food was dropped, milk was produced and shown through Sara's dress, and the valet hit a pole.  So then they try Will, but Will is a bit nervous around small babies and keeps texting updates.  It's not until Niall gets there that Max and Sara get to go out and have some alone time.

My Review: I will never get over how funny Christina Lauren novella's are.  I feel like they take their main novels (Bastard, Stranger, Player) to introduce the characters and have a serious situation occurring through each, but they use their novellas (Bitch, Bombshell, Beginning, Beloved) to show just how funny this group of friends can be and I cannot get enough of it!
Sara and Max just want to go on a date!  But life as parents is so different and they just can't catch a brake!  This novella is super short, but definitely worth the read.  I love how this is how Niall Stella is introduced to the storyline as he is the main character of the upcoming novel Beautiful Secret.  This story does bypass Sara's pregnancy, Sara and Max's 'wedding,' and Annabel's birth which is kind of disheartening, but that's not what this story is about so that stuff would take too much time away from the fact that Max and Sara need a night out.   

Smile!  I'll talk to you soon!xxx
