It's Valentine's Day weekend, and Bennett, his brother Henry, Max, and Will are all in Vegas for some Bachelor Party fun!! There will be some surprise guests, some sexy Champagne room escapades, and of course a couple of crazy shenanigans. Picture the movie, "The Hangover", minus Mike Tyson, the tiger, and the baby!!

There are several hot scenes between Bennett & Chloe, and Max & Sara, which having read most of the series you will come to expect there to be a lot of s

Will is planning Bennet’s bachelor party and decides to take the guys to Vegas. After all, everyone knows the best bachelor parties are there.
The problem? Bennet and Max, the committed guys of the gang, want their women close and find a way to take them along. Expect that the girls have a secret plan of their own.


This was a sweet and sexy novella and if you’re a fan of this series, you really can’t miss this.
It is short, quick and nice to read.

Bennett, Max, Will and Henry all go to Las Vegas for Bennett's bachelor party. Things are pretty straightforward until Bennett gets a lap dance and then things turn into a crazy sex-obsessed night for Bennett and Max.


It was really funny to read about all the things Max and Bennett went through to find time for Sara and Chloe while trying to keep things on the down low with Will and Henry.

It was nice to see that Will wasn't totally oblivious and I loved what he did to get back at Max. He

My Beautiful Bastard Boys are none other than LAS VEGAS!!!!

Can I just say...I FREAKING LOVE Max Stella! Damn that British boy is all kinds of yummy!!!

I could read about Max (and Sara) for days! the boys (Ben, Max, Henry and Will) are in Vegas for Bennett's bachelor party. It also happens to be Valentine's Day weekend. The story starts with the boys at a strip club. Max has bought Bennett a lap's like a rite of passage right??

Viva Las Vegas! With Bastards and Strangers and Players, Oh My!

I'm a fan of this series, but I'll admit I started this book with low expectations. I wasn't exactly blown away by the last novella Beautiful Bitch… So I was pleasantly laughed-out-loud-several-times pleased with this!
I grinned so much my face hurt.

Valentines Weekend. Bennett's Bachelor Party. Las Vegas.
...But the girls decided not to stay home…

I loved watching Max and Bennett run all over Las Vegas like love-struck idiots...

3.5 Las Vegas, Boys Night, Drinking and Shagging Stars *** */*

Here is the night when boy/men are supposed to be boy/men in Las Vegas. You have Bennett, Max, Will and Henry all out to celebrate Bennett's future marriage to Chloe.

Picture movies that have hysterical happenings and mixed up meetings. Picture lots of drunken fun with scams, blackjack and women with questionable DNA.

That is the picture... now scramble it a bit... mix in some kink, some surprising escapes and you are almost there.

This is Bennett's bachelor party in sinful Las Vegas. He is there with his best friends, Max, Will and his brother, Henry. The boys are ready to give Bennett a unforgettable weekend- booze, girls, and gambling!! Bennett is a good boy, but of course, a trip to an exclusive strip joint is in order. Let me just say, I love these guys. They are sexy, gorgeous, funny, sarcastic, give each other the business whenever possible, and they love like no other. There are some funny an

Bennett, Max, Will and Henry are living it up in Vegas for B's stag party weekend - but these two can't seem to stay away from Chloe & Sara when they sneak into town. And let's just say that they go to great lengths to get a few moments alone with their gal while trying to ensure that Will and Henry have no clue as to what is
Christine The Dark Romance Junkie *Wallflower Addict*
Absolutely pointless! Everyone in this book was horny, they had sex, they came, that is all! I'm still trying to figure out why it was written. I kept thinking, any minute now Christine, there's gonna be a huge reveal and it'll all make sense. Nope, no such luck!

I've learned my lesson, I'm staying away from the novellas. I'm definitely reading Will's story!

I thought this was a cute short story. The guys are all off for Bennett's Bachelor party weekend in Vegas. It is Bennett, Max, Will, & Henry all out to party and get a little crazy. Add Chloe and Sara to the mix & it's a steamy, sexy good time! I was happy to see Bennett is still a panty ripper! ;)They even threw in a little spanking! :) I am really looking forward to Will's book up next! :)

A novella in Max and Bennett's POV, IN VEGAS ?

Hells yea!


I love, love, LOVE how this is a story of Max and Sara AND Bennett and Chloe - in the males' POV!

Oh, how I didn't know how much I missed Max! That man is something sexy! Still love Bennett's beautiful bastardly ass! These two men together calls for ovary combustion!


Can't wait to get down and dirty with Will in Beautiful Player, cause that TITLE, and being friends with Bennett and Max, only spells trouble! :D

Original review on Julalicious Book Paradise

So this novella was interesting, but I was not in love with it. I felt like they wanted to put so much stuff in the same book and it was really too much stuff for the length of this novella.

I felt that perhaps, they should have done a novella for Bennett and one for Max or just make it longer. Heck, I wouldn't mind 50-100 pages more if it meant like everything wasn't so confusing.

But I still liked it and I'm still glad that I read it becau

Well, this was uncalled for. I would put this kind of short story free, online, or, somewhere.

The whole crew (along with Ben's brother) is in Vegas, baby!

And you might think that would look like Hangover movie, but all you can read about is... Bennett and Max (s)e(x)scapades (not with each other;)), hiding and scr*wing with the guys, playing a prank or two and not telling the truth where they were, while fuc*ing girls.

This book was so fun & had many laughs too. Short sexy novella about the boys Bennett, Max, Henry & Will weekend getaway for Valentine's day for Bennett's bachelor party in Vegas.

There was pretty much wall to wall sex in here from one scene to the next. But no complaints here! I think it was written very sensual & sexy in a way that doesn't come across overdone at all.

And some other moments were so funny like Bennett & Max's excuses they come up with to sneak off to spend time

Recommends it for: Fans of the series that want a quickie read
It's been a while since I read 'Beautiful Bastard' and 'Beautiful Stranger', so it took a little work to get back into the story. I had forgotten many of the relationship dynamics and personalities. I think I would have enjoyed this short story more if I'd read it immediately after completing book 2. I still liked it, but probably would have liked it more if I had read it a long time ago.

Overall, I thought this was a fun, cute and entertaining short story. There wasn't much in terms of plot, jus

As much as I enjoy the full length books in this series, characters I like in long form don't do anything for me in these short vignettes. Both BEAUTIFUL BASTARD and BEAUTIFUL STRANGER had some of the most passionate sex scenes I've read in a long time, but those same characters going at it without story around them just seems like any other erotica short. Specific, graphic, and utterly forgettable. I can't wait to read Will's story, however, and will continue to look forward to this series' ful ...more

I love the Beautiful Series, I am however starting to feel a little ripped off as the cost of the novels + the novellas is pretty high.

Apart from making more money (the novellas cost almost the same in hardcopy as the full books do), I really don't see why the novellas cannot actully be added to the the end of the full length books they fall between.
4 Delicious Stars!

I love me some Bennett Ryan and Max Stella so it was nice to catch up with these guys in Vegas. The little chasing game between the couples was too cute. If you're looking for a fun, deliciously hot, quick read then this is for you:)

Did I enjoy it? Yes. Was it over the top? Yes. And silly? Yes. I don't think it added anything, but I did enjoy it.

"I can't wait for that one girl to come in and kick your feet out from under you. You think you have things organized, sorted. You think you're content with your low-key bachelor apartment, with your triathlons and your work and your scheduled pussy. When that girl comes along, I'm going to say I told you so, and give you no bloody sympathy when you've turned into a lovesick strop.

Welcome to Vegas: The City of Sin!

OMG I freakin’ loved this novella! It was such a fun read! This novella was a mix of hilarious, sexy, adventure, sass, friendship, & drunkenness :D.

The relationship between the boys was such a kick. I seriously can’t get enough of their bromance! Oh and don’t even get me started on what these two did to get to their women hahaha; (view spoiler)

Leave it to the Beautiful Bastard crew to do Vegas right. These little novellas do nothing but feeding my craving for wanting more of these absolutely insatiable characters. Well, I am rarely short and sweet…but that’s what Beautiful Bombshell gave me, so that’s what I will give to you. Don’t get me wrong, it might have been short and sweet but it was hot, steamy, enticing and everything else I absolutely love about this seri

I'm a fan of this series, so you may call me biased. But this book was amazing! Even though it was short and that for me was missing a final Max chapter there!

This book was just soooo much FUN and sexy as always in this series, but this one had me simultaneous laughing hard and equally fanning myself harder between funny and hot!
The whole situation was just hilarious with chapters been told from Ben and Max POV's and all their excuses to run off and fi

It’s Valentine’s Day, and Bennett has taken off to Las Vegas with Max, Will and Henry for his stag’s weekend. Of course that’s no fun, so Chloe and Sara sneak along to ensure that good times are had.

What follows is Bennett & Chloe, and Max & Sara’s sexcapades across Vegas as the boys keep making hilariously lame excuses to sneak off and have a little one-on-one time with their girls, followed by a bit of guys’ time with drinks and pranks galore as the night pr
