Beautiful Player – by Christina Lauren

Original Cover
My own copy 

The blurb:

A bombshell bookworm. A chronic Casanova. And a lesson in chemistry too scandalous for school.

When Hanna Bergstrom receives a lecture from her overprotective brother about neglecting her social life and burying herself in grad school, she’s determined to tackle his implied assignment: get out, make friends, start dating. And who better to turn her into the sultry siren every man wants than her brother’s gorgeous best friend, Will Sumner, venture capitalist and unapologetic playboy?

Will takes risks for a living, but he’s skeptical about this challenge of Hanna’s…until the wild night his innocently seductive pupil tempts him into bed- and teaches him a thing or two about being with a woman he can’t forget. Now that Hanna’s discovered the power of her own sex appeal, it’s up to Will to prove he’s the only man she’ll ever need.

My Opinion:

Beautiful Bastard and Beautiful Stranger I was really excited to finally read book #3 of the series. I’ve already read the little stories in between, which were also great. I have to say this is definitely my favourite out of all of them! Hanna and Will had so much chemistry and I just loved how their story developed.

The story follows Hanna Bergstrom, she is 24 years old and practically buries herself in lab work. Her brother doesn’t like that and wants her to get out more. He tells her to call his old friend Will Sumner. We already know Will because he works for Max and he also went to Vegas with the guys. Will might be a playboy at the beginning oft he book, but I still liked him from the start. Hanna changed something in him, that was pretty obvious. He was just awesome though, I think I fell for him myself.

Hanna knows Will from her childhood. He spent a lot of time with Jensen and also at their house. You could say she had a crush on him ;) When they meet again fort he first time, even on the phone at first the connection is there immediately.

At first they are just friends and when Hanna needs help of how to date men, Will is there to help. That develops into something passionate, sexy and so much more. But Hanna can’t really believe that he can change though, with all his women around. And Will?! Well, he is completely falling for her!!! Reading about his feelings for her and all the emotions connected to it, made me like him even more. I understood her completely as well though and that’s what makes this switching between perspectives so great. You feel connected to both main characters.

I loved the way their story developed and I really enjoyed all of their scenes. Whenever they were not together I was sad. The weekend at her parent’s house was lets say steamy and exciting and funny! I think what Hanna and Will have is really special and I was just hoping for them to find a way to be together!

Another aspect I really loved about this story was that we got to read about Sara, Max, Chloe and Bennett from time to time as well. Whether it was the three guys, the three ladies or all of them together. I think they are a great bunch and I really hope we will hear much more about them!!!
Also: Will is definitely my fave out of the guys ;) So protective, but also sexy, caring and gorgeous!!!

Another brilliant and fabulous book by Christina Lauren, with exciting scenes, great moments, an awesome couple and so much more!!! Def my fave out of the series and I think the storyline had a wonderful flow. I had to dive right into Beautiful Beginning, because this series is just AMAZING!!!
