In the third book in the Beautiful Bastard series, an agreement between a venture capitalist and a bookish woman quickly becomes a very NSFW version of My Fair Lady.
When Hanna “Ziggy” Bergstrom moves to New York City for graduate school, Will Sumner thinks his responsibilities to his best friend’s nerdy little sister will be limited to the occasional dinner and check-in. Little does he know that Ziggy is ready to break out of her bookworm academic shell and move more into bombshell territory. Of course she figures the gorgeous womanizing venture capitalist Will is the best person to help mentor her in this new field of study: dating.
Will takes on the challenge with more than a healthy dose of skepticism and humor, but soon finds that Ziggy just needed a tiny push, not a world of change, to reveal a woman every man seems to notice. Soon “Ziggy” is gone and the unfiltered, innocently seductive Hanna Bergstrom is hijacking his dreams, his moods, and even his orderly no-strings-attached dating life—beginning the night his mentoring activities move between the sheets.
I’m completely in love with the Beautiful Bastard series of books. I devoured both Beautiful Bastard and Beautiful Stranger. For the third book in the series, I really savored Beautiful Player. I’ve loved all of the male characters but I think I’ve found my favorite in Will Sumner. He is equal parts swoony boy and attractive leading man. I also found I can really relate to Hanna and all her derp. (I laughed out loud when I actually read the word derp.) Will is supposed to be mentoring her but I feel like she is really teaching him more than he thought he would ever need to know about women. Their friendship seems so normal and complicated and just the way real life tends to be. I cheered for Hanna and Will and I know you will too.
