Beautiful Bastard (Beautiful Bastard #1) by Christina Lauren

From Goodreads: -

An ambitious intern. 
A perfectionist executive. 
And a whole lot of name calling.

Whip-smart, hardworking, and on her way to an MBA, Chloe Mills has only one problem: her boss, Bennett Ryan. He's exacting, blunt, inconsiderate—and completely irresistible. A Beautiful Bastard.

Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family's massive media business. He never expected that the assistant who'd been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative—completely infuriating—creature he now has to see every day. Despite the rumors, he's never been one for a workplace hookup. But Chloe's so tempting he's willing to bend the rules—or outright smash them—if it means he can have her. All over the office.

As their appetites for one another increase to a breaking point, Bennett and Chloe must decide exactly what they're willing to lose in order to win each other.

Originally only available online as The Office by tby789—and garnering over two million reads on fan fiction sites—Beautiful Bastard has been extensively updated for re-release.

Another fan-fic of the Twilight. The story is actually not that bad. In fact I quite like Chloe. I think she's cool, able to walk straight out from the room after her boss surprised her with pushing her down on the table and had sex with her. And then back to work the next day as if nothing had happened. As for Bennette, I'm not sure should I laugh at him or pity him. A man who acted arrogantly to a woman in order to mask himself that he had interest on her. Anyway I think those hot scenes are a little overwhelming. It's like all they do each time seeing each other was just for the sake of having sex only, making the story getting weak. More than half of the content is about how they can't keep their hands off each other. I would give a higher rating if not of the excessive unnecessary sex scenes.

I rate this book 2 out of 5 stars.
