One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like him.

But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation—and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out—Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume—her sweet, filthy fling—to

Sweet Filthy Boy was one of those books that sucked me in from the very beginning. Sweet, sexy and hilarious, it was a real winner in my book! I love books that make me laugh, have heroines I actually like, and boys that make me swoon. This book had all three of those elements.

I love books that at some point the characters end up in Vegas because you’re guaranteed for some crazy antics. And this book didn’t disappoint in that area. Mia and Ansel have just met and done something crazy that leads to Mia spending the summer with Ansel in his city, Paris. Who does that? Meets a guy and

I do not read “light, sweet, & funny” books. To be honest, those bore me and I need stories with much more depth so I avoided the Beautiful Bastard series. This book, however, caught my attention. At first glance the blurb is quite simplistic and sounds like any other book but I had this nagging feeling there was a hidden layer to the story and I was right! (Sorry not going to tell you – you’ll just have to read and find out!)

Sweet Filthy Boy was a sweet, sexy, fun read. A perfect balance of humor, steam and romance. Recent college graduate, Mia, heads off to Vegas with her two best friends to celebrate. While in Vegas she meets Ansel, a gorgeous Frenchman. And after spending one night together, she wakes up with a gold ring on a pretty significant finger.


Ansel makes her an offer she can't refuse, asking her to spend the summer in Paris with him. Mia decides to be spontaneous and takes him up on his offer, things are

I loved it! Sweet Filthy boy was funny, sexy and cute! I think the title for the book, totally fit with the male characters personality. Ansel was amazing, he captivated me and I'm sure he will steal your hearts when you finally meet him to! What I loved more in this book like in Beautiful Players is that her characters are so real, they are not perfect they have their problems like us in our every day life!!

The story begins with Mia who is in Las Vegas with her friends for vacation

Sweet Filthy Boy starts off with a bang, in which Mia our heroine, takes a graduation trip to Vegas where she meets a sexy frenchman Ansel, and the two get married. Mia ends up following Ansel to France, where he returns to work and is hardly around.

You know those stories were people go to Vegas, get drunk, get married, and then get it annulled? Yeah, this isn’t one of the stories or at least not the full story.

Mia and her girlfriends have just graduated college and to celebrate they go to Vegas. While in Vegas they meet three sexy men all from other countries. Ansel, Finn and Oliver are the trifecta of hotness and when they all get drunk, one thing leads to another, and they end up paired up and married. Finn, Harlow,

Overall Opinion: I get so frustrated with these books because the endings just simply aren't satisfying for me. I really enjoy them otherwise, so that is where the frustration stems from. I always enjoy Ms. Lauren's characters and storylines (and her sex scenes aren't bad either *wink, wink*), but her endings just leave me wanting. I want a solid HEA! I want to see them succeeding in their dream careers together as a healthy functioning couple!! Other than the ending, I actually enjoy

Sweet Filthy Boy is a standalone and is part of the Wild Seasons series. I read the books out of order. I was really curious about Ansel since all my friends loved him and he’s mentioned a few times in the future books. I can honestly say, he’s my favorite Hero of the series.

Nothing is sexier than a French man.

Despite this book's unfortunate title and cover art, it's actually really good. The bad boy vibe that the whole aesthetic sets up is completely wrong--the love interest of this book is actually so cute and sweet and gentle and I would have never picked this book up had Emily not told me it was her fav by Christina Lauren.

Overall, solid book. It's perhaps one of the smuttiest I've ever read, but it still somehow has room to develop the characters and a plot. That it's set in Paris is als

But then, the relationship just turned... weird. Or unconventional might be a better word. I honestly can't put my finger on it as to what is bugging me about it other than the fact that I

I enjoyed reading this book and I loved the way Ansel and Mia tried to get to know each other better. Day by day, their relationship as husband and wife grew stronger and it was so cute seeing them together. I know this is erotic romance story, but too many unnecessary sex scenes irritated me a lot. I admit I skimmed through some of them.

Aside from the fact that almost half the story revolved around sex, for some reason, this book was just right for me.

I wanted some classic Christina Lauren, but what I actually got was more smut than story...

Firstly I could tell that this one was written a while ago, as this was nothing like the duos more recent offerings! Nowadays Christina Lauren write romantic type chick-lit, with a few sex scenes but they mostly fade to black. This book was most definitely more in the new adult genre. Now I'm not one to shy away from a steamy sex scene, and I'm not really a fan of skipping over the details, but this one ha

Mia and her two besties, Harlow & Lola just graduated college and are off to Vegas to let loose & celebrate. But Mia's not the type of girl to just let it all go. Too much has happened in her past and the weight of the future she doesn't want to allow her to free, until she meets him.

Ansel is spending the last few days in Vegas before he has to head back to Paris and to his job as an attorney, one that does allow him much time for much else. Seeing Mia from across the crowded club, then kno

This was my first book by these authors, and I have to say I really enjoyed it! I liked Mia, but I'm completely in love with Ansel. Swoon. I loved everything about him. I think I have a weakness for hot, charismatic French guys:) I didn't blame Mia at all, one night with Ansel dirty whispering French phrases in my ear, and I would have followed him anywhere too. In fact, I'm not sure I've ever been this jealous of a fictional character. Explore Paris by day, have wild

I always find myself enjoying the work of these ladies. Witty banter, lovable main and side characters, and interesting situations will always be present. A rare miss for me, I found this to be a pretty solid read.

Immediately after college graduation, Mia and her two best friends head to Las Vegas for some fun, boozing it up, and possibly a one-night stand.

Ansel is also taking a break from stresses of reality. H

These two women never disappoints, ever! I've been a big fan since BB came out and the excitement is still strong! I think this even made my fire bigger and more intense!

The entire story was beyond hilarious, for me. I can't actually put it down and people were giving me looks during my ride to school most times for giggling so hard. I actually don't know if I should laugh and giggle hard at the same time. My excitement jar is just.. overflowing with butterflies.
