From the New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Bastard, Beautiful Stranger, and Beautiful Player, Book Two of the brand-new Wild Seasons series that started with Sweet Filthy Boy—a story of friends, love, and lust.
Despite their rowdy hookups, Harlow and Finn don’t even like each other...which would explain why their marriage lasted only twelve hours. He needs to be in charge and takes whatever he wants. She lives by the Want-something-done? Do-it-yourself mantra. Maybe she’s too similar to the rugged fisherman—or just what he needs.

"A sexy, sweet treasure of a story. I loved every word."
– (Sylvia Day, #1 New York Times bestselling author on Sweet Filthy Boy)
"Readers will quickly fall for Finn. Lauren has mastered writing delectable heroes and strong-willed heroines to match, and the contrast between the rough-edged Finn and polished Harlow makes for a passionate romance."
– RT Book Reviews
The pseudonymous writing duo behind Beautiful Bastard (2013) continues the Wild Seasons series with a sequel that is both dirty and rowdy. When a friend's comic-book store opening brings Finn to Harlow's neighborhood, they can't deny their lingering feelings for long […] In addition to casual sex, the two distract themselves from more serious life issues with authentic regional fun involving comic books and craft beers with their friends, who make for hilarious secondary characters. Fans will appreciate that Mia and Ansel, who were the focus of Book 1 [Sweet Filthy Boy], are still together when they all meet up at the grand opening. In a story that is easily devoured in one sitting, the details are sparse but spot-on—"Apparently there are a lot of nerds in San Diego," notes Finn—and witty dialogue carries the plot swiftly to a happy ending. The romance unfolds like a series of drunken text messages, which, perhaps surprisingly, is not a bad thing.
“Sweet Filthy Boy lives up to every yummy bit of its title. Each word, each thought, each touch from Ansel is pure, unadulterated SEX. Christina Lauren's assured writing and their ability to create a scorching and witty love story makes them an automatic 1-Click for us.”
– The Rock Stars of Romance

“It's official: I'd read Christina Lauren's grocery list if they'd let me. The girls wrote the French-boy fantasy I didn't know I had. Just when I thought I didn't have time for yet another book boyfriend, I made time for Ansel....”

“Hot . . . if you like your hook-ups early and plentiful..."
