Title: Beautiful Boss
Series: The Beautiful Series Bk # 9
Author: Christina Lauren
Release Date: February 29, 2016

The ninth work in the New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling series that started with Beautiful Bastard. In this e-novella, Will Sumner and Hanna Bergstrom (from Beautiful Player) find that a wedding and everlasting love were just the beginning.
One Player tamed. One nerd girl satisfied. And one more major life decision to make. When Will fell for Hanna, her quirky sense of humor and fierce dedication to her career were part of the attraction. (Not to mention her coy newbie attitude toward sex and her willingness to let him teach her everything.) But when the job offers start rolling in for her—and oh, they do—Hanna has trouble deciding what she wants, where they should live, and how much she should burden Will with the decision. Magic between the sheets is only one part of a relationship...getting on the same page is quite another altogether.
 Will and Hanna are my favorite favorite favorite Christina Lauren couple. I loved everything about how they came to be in Beautiful Player, how their unexpected love story evolved, how quirky and academic they both are. They're so so so perfect together, so likeable individually. Their sexual chemistry and the profound depth of their love made them completely unforgettable and that emotion and raw attraction is ever present in this delicious little novella. 

From the very first page, I was reminded of how uniquely special this couple is. They're adorably nerdy and I almost forgot how much that endeared them to me. They're both analytical and scientific by profession and they approach their relationship and the imminent changes their relationship faces with the same logic they apply to their work. They don't allow superstitious traditions to influence them into entering into their marriage the way the other couples did. They rely on facts and data and their concrete emotions to allay each other's fears and it's that reliance on logic and research and cold hard facts that sets the tone for this novella. 

Hanna and Will rode into this story on a cloud of joy and hope and love. It was hard to imagine where the conflict in this story could possibly come from. I wasn't even sure there'd be any. But it does come. This little novella is packed with some serious angst, some realistic drama and a few hard socks to the gut. But those feels, both good and bad, are so perfectly consistent with who these characters are. It was so right, so believable, so authentic. 

Beautiful Boss is equal parts raw emotion, heartfelt drama, laugh out loud humor, and hot sex. This story made me fall in love with Hanna and Will all over again and it reaffirmed why I loved them so much from the beginning. It also further cements the ever evolving yet always constant bonds between this beautiful group of friends. With their signature wit and hilarity, Christina Lauren delivers another unputdownable, delectable, sexy sexy sexy addition to one of my most favorite series EVER.
