Title : Beautiful Bastard
Author : Christina Lauren
Series : Beautiful Bastard, #1
Rating : 4 Stars

Blurb : 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 2 million reads on fanfiction sites—Beautiful Bastard has been extensively updated for re-release.

Review : How to Tell ...

This really is a Good Book / Great Story but it has One hughe mistake....

And that is the non consequent change of names....
So if your Story is a fanfiction by the Name of "the Office" it might be perfectly fine to Name the characters after stefenie meyers twilight!
But if you decide to go out their and make it a Real Book (and i think the Story very well deserved to be a Real Book) then you have to go Not only vor changing the Name of the Book - but you also have to change the name of your Book characters.

This only happend partly which left me wondering until the end WHY???
I actually catched myself checking who was missing and wondering why 3names didn't fit....
And in the back of my mind there was this small Voice asking all the Time "what's that all got to do with Twilight?"
So this whole thinking almost killed the Story for me until i agreed with myself to ignore the names and just Focus on the Story

So 4stars Form the Story and a Minus 1star for Not beeing able to give the Story a Chance to survive on its own!
