Beautiful Beloved by Christina Lauren Book Review

Posted by Chris at 10:45 AM 1 comments
I became a fan on the Christina Lauren writing duo a few years ago when I was asked to review a few of their books. I love the fun writing style and wonderful characters they have created with a circle of friends. So when this advanced reading copy for this new edition of their Beautiful series showed up, I was thrilled to get a sneak peek!
Beautiful Beloved by Christina Lauren
Publisher: Pocket Star (February 2, 2015)
Kindle Edition

About:
The seventh work in the New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling series that started with the Beautiful Bastard, Beautiful Stranger, and Beautiful Player novels. Featuring all the Beautiful characters…plus one tiny new addition to the group.

In Beautiful Stranger, finance whiz Sara Dillon met the irresistibly sexy Brit, Max Stella, at a New York City club. Through the series we’ve watched them learn to balance commitment with their less than private brand of playfulness. In Beautiful Beloved, Max and Sara take it to the next step. But the question is: Will they be able to find a balance between the wild sexcapades they aren’t ready to retire, and the demands of parenthood that come along with their new Beautiful bundle of joy? Parenthood: it’s not for the weak of heart.

My Thoughts:
This book is only offered in an ebook version or an audio version so far. It is not a long read - it took me about 1.5 hrs or so - but it is a fulfilling read as an aside to the normal full size novels.

This book depicts the struggles new parents have when they are trying to find a balance between parenthood and their own relationship. Max and Sara had a wild intimate life and we are along for the ride in this edition of the series as they try and find time and the right person to watch their darling bundle of joy so they can get back to being a couple again somehow.

What I love about the writing style of this author is you get both points of view. One chapter is from Sara's POV and the next will be from Max. The whole series is done this way and it really brings you into each character's head and their relationships with family and friends. I love how open they are about their relationship with their best friends and I wonder if people really are that way. I am not but maybe I would be given the right set of friends.

One thing about this series is there is a lot of sweet romance and steamy scenes. This book is loaded with it so if that bothers you, this is not the book for you. However, it is refreshing to read a story about complete love and acceptance. Max is enamored with is wife and child and is book is a shining example of how we all wish life would be.

For a beautiful escape, grab a copy of Beautiful Beloved and be prepared to fall in love with Max yourself! I need one just like him!

Posted by Shelly Hill at 2:56 PM 2 comments
For those of you who enjoy slapstick comedy or just comedy in general...you'll want to make note of this upcoming DVD release for Dumb and Dumber To coming to DVD on February 17th, 2015. Here is some information about the upcoming release.

INCLUDING AN ALTERNATE OPENING, DELETED AND EXTENDED SCENES - AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY ON DIGITAL HD ON FEBRUARY 3, 2015
ON BLU-RAY™ COMBO PACK INCLUDING BLU-RAY™, DVD & DIGITAL HD WITH ULTRAVIOLET™ ON FEBRUARY 17, 2015

Universal City, California, January 7, 2014 –Two decades after Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels’ endearingly dense pairing spun slapstick comedy into box office gold in Dumb and Dumber, the long-awaited sequel, Dumb and Dumber To, arrives on Digital HD on February 3, 2015 and on DVD and Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and On Demand on February 17, 2015 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Directed by Peter and Bobby Farrelly (Dumb and Dumber; There’s Something about Mary; Me, Myself and Irene) the Dumb and Dumber To Blu-ray™ Combo Pack offers hilarious extra belly laughs including an alternate opening, deleted and extended scenes, and a multi-part feature that takes viewers behind the scenes of the no-holds-barred comedy.

The side-splitting sequel also stars Rob Riggle (The Hangover, 21 Jump Street), Kathleen Turner (Marley & Me, Romancing the Stone), Laurie Holden (“The Walking Dead,” Silent Hill), Rachel Melvin (My Funny Valentine, “Days of Our Lives”), and Steve Tom (“Major Crimes,” Seven Pounds).

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels reprise their signature roles as Lloyd and Harry in the sequel to the smash hit that took the physical comedy and kicked it in the nuts: Dumb and Dumber To. The original film’s directors, Peter and Bobby Farrelly, take Lloyd and Harry on a road trip to find a child Harry never knew he had and the responsibility neither should ever, ever be given. Along for the ride are co-stars Kathleen Turner, Laurie Holden, and Rob Riggle.
