Beautiful Beloved

By Christina Lauren

  • Release Date: 2015-02-02
  • Genre: Contemporary
4.5 Score: 4.5 (From 375 Ratings)


The seventh work in the New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling series that started with the Beautiful Bastard, Beautiful Stranger, and Beautiful Player novels. Featuring all the Beautiful characters…plus one tiny new addition to the group.

In Beautiful Stranger, finance whiz Sara Dillon met the irresistibly sexy Brit, Max Stella, at a New York City club. Through the series we’ve watched them learn to balance commitment with their less than private brand of playfulness. In Beautiful Beloved, Max and Sara take it to the next step. But the question is: Will they be able to find a balance between the wild sexcapades they aren’t ready to retire, and the demands of parenthood that come along with their new Beautiful bundle of joy? Parenthood: it’s not for the weak of heart.


  • Love Max and Sara 👏

    I’m not sure why I overlooked this novella in favor of reading the other books in the series first. I have read and reread the others in the series many times as the Beautiful books are some of my favorites. “Beautiful Beloved “ did not disappoint. The authors manage what most contemporary authors do not. They offer a sexy hot story with characters of depth and dialogue that sparkles. Another winner. 👍

    Review originally posted on Reading Books Like a Boss Max Stella and Sara Dillon are back in this short novella. Their lives have changed dramatically since they first fell into each other in Beautiful Stranger . Now they're parents trying to get into a routine while keeping the spark alive. Sara and Max are new parents to sweet little Anabel. Sara wants to go back to work but she feels guilt for wanting to go back. While Max's feelings towards Sara are as strong as ever, a burning ember, and he wants nothing more than to be as rough and brazen with her as they were before their baby. I listened to this one and found myself a little bit bored with the story. For what it was (more time with Max and Sara), it was cute, sweet, sexy and funny. But I didn't enjoy this one as much as I had the previous novels and novellas. I really liked how naturally Max and Sara fell into their roles as parents. I will say that I am realllllyyyyy excited for Niall's book after meeting him in this one. Knowing a little bit of his back story, I can't wait to dive into his book and find out who will capture his broken heart. Audiobook Comments: Holy freaking canoli!! How have I not listened to Jonathan Cole before? His portray of one of my favorite British boyfriends, is spot-on and super swoony! I loved his accent so much! Grace Grant also was perfect for Sara (and even as Max!). If Grace Grant narrates something, I know it's going to be good. She's like the female Sebastian York. Automatic buy.
  • Luv the series

    U have to luv Max...I will say it's a great series but I so love hearing max's story so much better. BB's character is hard to have a great amount of compassion for. Especially when compared to Max...yum

    I love every Beautiful book but, man, do I love me some Max Stella. British, sexy, and a lovable new daddy?! Someone call my doctor, I think I just fainted.
  • Can't wait for the next book!

    By Jackieebooo

  • Waste of time and money!

    By GwenK
    This book is absolute rubbish! There was ZERO reason for this book...the storyline is stupid and focuses on the two trying to have a date post-baby. I'm not a parent, so a book where 90% is talking about breast milk and the baby is SUCH a disappointment and SO uninteresting. I'm annoyed for having read this...all the while hoping this book would actually get didn't. Bottom line: don't bother!!!
