Review: MAGNIFICENT BASTARD by Lili Valente

F*ck Prince Charming. Sometimes, you need a Magnificent Bastard.

Face it, ladies: love sucks and then you cry…while your ex rides off into the sunset banging your best friend.

But why let a break-up end in tears when it can end with sweet revenge? Enter Magnificent Bastard Consulting and me, chief executive bastard. I’ve got it all—looks, brains, a heart of gold, and the killer instinct guaran-damn-teed to make your ex regret the day he said goodbye.

With the help of my virtual assistant, I’ve built an empire giving broken-hearted women the vengeance they deserve, while keeping myself far from the front lines of the heart. Life is a bowl of cherries, until my virtual assistant shows up on my real doorstep for the first time, begging for a Magnificent Bastard intervention of her own. 

Damn... She’s a bona fide sex kitten.

I pride myself on being a true pro, but pretending to be her lover soon leads to giving it to her good, hard, fast, and up against the wall. And somewhere between getting balls deep in my sweet and sexy assistant and watching her ex beg for a second chance, I break every last one of my damn rules—professional and personal.

So what’s my next move? Fight for the girl who makes me want to get up on a white horse and ride to her rescue, or stay a Magnificent Bastard to the end?

Warning: MAGNIFICENT BASTARD is a stand-alone erotic romance told from the
hero’s point of view. No cliffhanger. Lots of dirty talk.

My Review:
What a sweet breath of fresh air this book was. I loved both characters. Penny & Sebastian "Bash". I love their story, watching it unfold but also learning all about their story that started two years before we have the chance to meet them. They are freaking adorable. 

Penny worked for Bash for two years as his assistant for Magnificent Bastard. They never met in person but became the very best of friends through emails and texts. At one point Penny asks him if its weird that she's never met the person she says goodnight to nearly every night and I think thats just the SWEETEST thing ever. :) Cut to two years down the road when they FINALLY meet face to face and the attraction is INSTANT and undeniable. 

As always, I don't want to give too much of this adorable story away, I'll just say that the spark had been kindling for 2 years before they met, and the flame only grew stronger and more FIERCE after their meeting. Until...

"I'm happy to strip you bare right here. Right now. Lift you up on this counter and fuck you until you come so hard you see Jesus." "I'm jewish" she murmurs, swallowing hard. "Or at least, I was raised Jewish." "That's how epic the fucking will be." 

Lili Valente did such a perfect job of combining Humor,(I laughed so hard reading I almost had to pause the treadmill! WIN!)Sex Appeal (I mean, COME ON, did you read that quote?!), Angst, and Charm. 

It was such a fun journey, held my interest the whole way through. By the end I was so desperate to know how things were going to end that I was both trying to pace myself because I didn't want it to end, but turning pages at lightening speed because I needed answers and FAST! It left me with happy happy happy tears filling my eyes, and my heart racing. What better way to finish a book?!
