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.

This was my first Christina Lauren book but it definitely won't be my last. One of my favorite authors was talking about this book which prompted me to one click it-and I was pulled in from the very start. There are books that can make you smile, books that can make you sigh and books that make you swoon. Beautiful Stranger does all that and more-it is one of the rare books for me that is the total package.

Sara Dillon is looking for a fresh start after coming out of a long term relationship. She's trying to figure out who she is on her own, what she likes, what she wants. Seeing her blossom in her journey was so much fun. I sympathized with what she was going through and I cheered for her every step of the way. She wasn't expecting Max in her life-and neither was I.

Max Stella. Oh, my Max. Max is absolutely magnificent. I was hooked on him immediately, from the moment he met Sara in the club I was a goner. Watching him fall, seeing him open up was just beautiful. He is absolutely, without a doubt, one of my all time favorite book boyfriends. I know I'll revisit him often.

The writing in this book is superb. I truly felt I was there with the characters-the pictures that were painted were that vivid. I wanted to go have a drink with these people after work, just go somewhere and talk with them. The pacing was perfect to me as well. This was one of those books I both wanted to savor and devour at the same time-and I wound up devouring it. I have no regrets on that. I look forward to exploring the rest of this series and Christina Lauren's work. I highly recommend this book.
