When Ryan Media Group opens a new office in New York, numbers whiz Sara Dillon happily accepts the position of Director of Finance. On her first weekend in her new town, Sara has wild - and very public - sex with a gorgeous stranger on a balcony overlooking Chloe Mills' raucous engagement party.

Sara assumes the tryst was a one-time thing, but when her mysterious lover sends her the steamy phone video he took of their encounter, she realizes he might have unearthed a side of her she'd never let herself explore. Unfortunately, an affair with Max Stella, Wall Street's newly-imported golden boy, could be very, very bad for her new career.

Max has a legendary appetite for casual sex, but the kindred kink he finds in Sara is hard to brush off. Soon the formerly-irresistible investment banker finds himself pursuing a woman who seems to want very little to do with him outside of their playful and creative exhibitionism. They have only three rules: keep it casual, keep it private, and no faces. That is until Max convinces Sara to come with him to a club that opens a new world for them, and their sex-only relationship grows decidedly more intimate.

Our customer reviews

Beautiful Stranger is by far one of the best books I�???�??�?�¢??ve read in 2013. I can�???�??�?�¢??t help but emphasis on the fact that it is AMAZING. Well, mostly for the ladies or the overall hopeless romantics out there. The book is written in two perspectives, Max Stella and Sara Dillons. Max Stella is filthy rich, he is also a popular womanizer with a killer British accent. Sara Dillon, on the other hand, is short, beautiful in her own way, and has only recently gotten out of a very long relationship with her fiance who cheated on her. Sara has pledged that she�???�??�?�¢??ll focus on herself, she�???�??�?�¢??ll have fun and do things she would never do when years ago and definitely not take men seriously ever again. But then a one night stand changes everything. As much as I loved the passion in the book, the depth and the story behind both characters was what kept me reading. To conclude, the women behind this book are brilliant writers and with brilliant writers come a huge hoard of fans who I have to thank so much for forcing them to write this sequel to the Beautiful ******* book. I can�???�??�?�¢??t wait to read more from Christina and more
