Reviews by Marina & Jackie: Beautiful by Christina Lauren

Featuring the entire BEAUTIFUL series cast for one final hurrah!


After walking in on her boyfriend shagging another girl in their place, Pippa Bay Cox ditches London for the States to go on a drunken road trip with Ruby Miller and some of her Beautiful friends.

Scaling the career ladder is the default way to deal with heartbreak—and to just deal—for Jensen Bergstrom. Absolutely buried by his drive and workload, he rarely takes time for himself. But when his sister Hanna convinces him to join the gang on a two-week wine tour, he has a rare moment of cutting loose. Of course, it’s only once he’s committed that he realizes the strange girl he met briefly on the plane is coming along, too. She might be too much for him…or he might realize his life has become too small and needs her to make it bigger, crazier.

With this circle of friends there’s always something going on: from Chloe and Sara’s unexpected personality swaps to Will’s new domestic side to Bennett’s text message barrage and George’s own happily-ever-after. In short, their adventures in love, friendship, and hilarity are nothing short of Beautiful.

Beautiful was just Beautiful! I'm really kind of sad this is the last book in this incredible series! I don't want to say goodbye, I really don't!! I've grown to love all the characters with all their quirks and sexiness and this book is no different!! Jensen. Oh la la, that man is just without doubt an amazing beautiful man who wholeheartedly loves his family and friends and was dealt a blow that caused him to raise a shield on love! When Per chance he meets someone on the plane back from London, he's rather surprised to see her at his nieces birthday party! When a trip brings them closer together and brings out his past, things are rather funny and very interesting indeed! I loved the funny moments, the banter, the beautiful friendships they all have together and support! It's amazing and I want that personally!! What makes it even more Beautiful is the way Jensen is behind closed doors and I sighed and swooned a lot! He I could go on but you just HAVE to read it for yourself or you are really missing out! Christina Lauren write such wonderful, humorous and hot love stories!!

Paperback copy received from Simon & Schuster AU for review.

This is the last book in the Beautiful B series and although you can read this as a standalone, I think you would struggle with so many characters from previous books coming into this story. 
I have not read all the previous books and I did struggle to get into the story but I'm so glad I persevered, because Beautiful is just that, it's a beautiful story full of quirky characters and it will have you laughing out loud at their antics.
Pippa and Jensen meet on a transatlantic flight, two very different people he is a  workaholic on his way home she is and going on holiday to escape her cheating boyfriend. Things really heat up after the flight when they find themselves on the same road trip and the inevitable happens. Is it just a fling ..
The characters are all loveable and I will go back and read the rest of this series. You will laugh and you will cry and you will want more. Great read.
