Christina Lauren – The Beautiful Series Reading Order

by Maryse on April 27, 2013 · 32 comments

in Reading Order Guide:

A popular fan-fiction series that was just signed by a big publisher and I’ve been getting some great recommendations! I shall be checking this one out, soon!

Marina: I’m sure you are well aware of Beautiful Bastard, the Twilight fanfiction which was published and released yesterday on Amazon. Hot book, very similar to 50 shades and Bared to You. If not, although I’m certain you already have your hands on it, it is a MUST read. Very panty-ripping hot!

Surfergurl: I’m a big 50 shades fan but I’ve just read Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren and LOVED it.

Madelyn: Books that will leave you hot and bothered… Here are 2 from me to you that I haven’t seen on here. They are Beautiful Bastard and Beautiful Stranger by Christina Lauren. They are really good reads. Took me about a day and a half each and I have 2 small children. Hope these make your list.

About book #1:

Whip-smart, hardworking, and on her way to an MBA, Chloe Mills has only one problem: her boss, Bennett Ryan. He’s exacting, blunt, inconsiderate–and completely irresistible. A Beautiful Bastard.

Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family’s massive media business. He never expected that the assistant who’d been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative–completely infuriating–creature he now has to see every day. Despite the rumors, he’s never been one for a workplace hookup. But Chloe’s so tempting he’s willing to bend the rules–or outright smash them–if it means he can have her. All over the office.

As their appetites for one another increase to a breaking point, Bennett and Chloe must decide exactly what they’re willing to lose in order to win each other.

The authors state: “If you wanted to read them all the order would be: Bastard, Stranger, Bitch, Bombshell, Player, Beginning, Beloved, Secret.”

Mandy April 27, 2013 at 6:38 PM

The first 2 books were SOOOO good!!!

Aarjullor April 27, 2013 at 7:33 PM

I love both of the books that are out, and I’m eagerly waiting for the others. Beautiful Stranger was by far my favorite though. Max Stella is right in there with my best book boyfriends. Very tall, handsome, sweet, rich with an English accent, I’m all over that!

Kimberly B April 27, 2013 at 7:39 PM

I loved both books so much. Cant wait for the next one. Very funny, great sex, and a HEA with no cliffhanger series. My kinda read.

Kathy P April 27, 2013 at 9:33 PM

Beautiful Bastard is not a dark read like Fifty but was definitely a fun read. Took my mind of all of the laundry piling up!

Cynthia April 28, 2013 at 12:26 AM

I loved these books! Super steamy and funny and the alternating points of view just add to the story.

Georgia April 28, 2013 at 6:04 AM

Couldn’t agree more. Read Beautiful Bastard in 2 days. Ordering book 2 today!!

Tammy Smith April 28, 2013 at 2:56 PM

These are 2 of my all time favorite books!!!

I had Beautiful Bastard for awhile but it kept getting pushed down on my TBR list, I felt like smacking myself for not reading it sooner. I was hooked in the first chapter! Don’t make the same mistake I did, make this the next book you read!!! You will be sooo glad you did!!!

Shannon April 30, 2013 at 7:19 AM

I’d been hearing lots of mixed reviews on this one, and at that price I’m hesitant to buy. But after everyone’s enthusiasm here, maybe I’ll have to give it another look.

Nickie May 1, 2013 at 6:10 PM

OOOh love love this series!!!! Beautiful Bastard had me at the first chapter!! Blew me away!!!! However, Beautiful Stranger is now my favorite!! Max Stella is sooo sexy!!! His thoughtfulness and playfulness had me reading all over the city!!! Literally!!! hehe and I always have a weak spot for those English men & their sexy as hell accent *sigh so worth it!!! Can’t wait to read the next one!!!

Just finished listening to Stranger. I love the series, and the voices on audio seem to fit in my imagination.

LMAL1 July 10, 2013 at 11:39 AM

What order of the books should I read them in exactly?

Maryse July 10, 2013 at 11:41 AM

The order listed above should be correct as each book in the list is numbered.

LMAL1 July 10, 2013 at 1:04 PM

Okay thanks! I was just a little confused by the dates they were released

Tara July 24, 2013 at 11:31 PM

I understand that the list above is the order? Why are the first 2 books about bennet and chloe then the next book is about someone else then the next about chloe and bennet again? Is that right? Im confused. Why not skip the books about max so you can continue reading about bennet? I loved the first book but just wondering as I havent read a series like this before. Like I said…. confused :)

Annmarie July 25, 2013 at 1:54 PM

Loved Beautiful Bastard, liked Beautiful Bitch but found Beautiful Stranger to be fantastic and my new fave of this series. Max is one hot Brit!!

Dean August 13, 2013 at 9:28 PM

Loved…both books ….Clohe and Sara would definitely be my split personality. These ladies are my hero’s.

Melissa September 13, 2013 at 6:20 AM

It would have been nice though if she was consistent with the names of her characters. She change Bennett’s brother and sister-in-law in the last few book! What the hell!?!

Rachel November 2, 2013 at 10:24 PM

I have read all of the beautiful series thus far and I just read the fifth book beautiful player. …..funny funny funny..I laughed out loud so many times that people on the other treadmills were trying to read it over my shoulder..which made it even funnier. Please don’t stop the series after beautiful beginning. I can’t wait until it comes out but I can already tell you I will want it to continue for a while. Please don’t stop writing …
Ps when the reaction to the Jesus statue breaking happened , i almost hit the wall falling off the treadmill…I’m done reading the book and can’t stop laughing at how silly those characters are..awesome is not a strong enough word for this book and the entire series for that matter..thanks again

annalee November 15, 2013 at 2:29 PM

i dont get the begining of beautiful bitch… it soynds like they broke up but i dont remember reading that in beautiful bastard …whats going on???? help!

L November 17, 2013 at 10:25 PM

For Melissa and annalee,
I had the same confusion when I started Beautiful Bitch. After searching online for answers, and even writing to the authors on their site I figured it out! The version of Beautiful Bastard you read is not the published copy. The story started out as twilight fan fiction called The Office. This was basically the exact same story you read. if you read the published book of beautiful bastard, there are a lot of differences (mostly the last quarter but a little throughout). This version takes you right into beautiful bitch.

April November 18, 2013 at 7:45 PM

Please, please tell me that “Beautiful Player” isn’t the last full book in your series??!! I’ve read every book in this series so far, and LOVE them all! I can’t get enough! I feel like these people are my friends and I need more!!. Please give us more!
Thank you, April

Jen November 23, 2013 at 8:04 PM

Ok I live these books just finished beautiful player and starting beautiful beginning. Please tell me there is more????

Sophie January 8, 2014 at 5:56 AM

Do all the books tie into each other cause reading on audible it seems like on 3 of them do

Penny January 10, 2014 at 8:26 PM

Absolutely loved Beautiful Bastard and Beautiful Bitch. Starting Beautiful Stranger tonight…these are very easy reads. I was little disappointed that there weren’t more details once Chloe got to France. Have really enjoyed these!

Kat May 1, 2014 at 12:10 AM

Candice May 7, 2014 at 10:03 AM

Susan July 30, 2014 at 4:52 PM

I LOVED this series! I cried and laughed until I cried. Definitely recommending these to all of my friends

meliss b October 8, 2014 at 8:08 PM

Does it make a huge difference if I don’t read the 1.5, 2.5,3.5??? I only have books 1 & 2 I went right to reading beautiful stranger

Spacecake July 16, 2015 at 10:46 PM
