Review:Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren

Rating: ★★★★ stars
Date published: May 13th, 2014
Publisher: Gallery Books
Synopsis: One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like him.

But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation—and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out—Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume—her sweet, filthy fling—to France for the summer and just…play.

When feelings begin to develop behind the provocative roles they take on, and their temporary masquerade adventures begin to feel real, Mia will have to decide if she belongs in the life she left because it was all wrong, or in the strange new one that seems worlds away.

What I Thought:

You know how car adverts mention how fast a car can hit a certain speed in a couple of seconds?  Well Sweet Filthy Boy started with at 80 mph and stayed there for most of the book.  I was the delighted passenger in the front passenger side seat, whipping pages as fast as I could read them in the middle of the night.  

In the beginning, I wasn't sure if I'd like this book, which is the first in writing duo Christina Lauren's new series.  I was most reticent about Ansel.  He seemed like a cool, hip French dude, but could I dig him?  Oh yeah.  I was very surprised at how much I adored the urbane and smooth Ansel.  He totally made me swoon.  I liked Mia too.  I liked how after she finished freaking out the morning after, decided to figure out what it was that made her behave so rashly.  Her openness is a quality I would like to have myself.

Once again, the very talented duo of Christina Lauren have written a fabulous book.  Yes it's not about my Beautiful hunks and the women they love, but it's about a new series with a hero I've fallen for and potential for more Gallic goodness to come.  If you were like me and slightly afraid to take a chance on this new series, relax.  It's a great read; Give it a chance.
