When Ruby Miller's boss announces he's sending her on an extended business trip to New York City, she's shocked. As one of the best and brightest young engineers in London, she knows she's professionally up to the task. The part that's throwing her is where she'll be spending a month up close and personal working alongside--and staying in a hotel with--Niall Stella, her firm's top urban planning executive and The Hottest Man Alive. Despite her ongoing crush, Ruby is certain Niall barely knows she's alive...until their flirty overnight flight makes him sit up and take notice. Not one for letting loose and breaking rules, recently divorced Niall would describe himself as hopeless when it comes to women. But even he knows outgoing California-girl Ruby is a breath of fresh air. Once she makes it her mission to help the sexy Brit loosen his tie, there's no turning back. Thousands of miles from London, it's easy for the lovers to play pretend. But when the trip is over, will the relationship they've built up fall down?

There is just something about CL books that keep me coming back. They aren't always perfect. I mean, I initially DNF'd their first book, but eventually came back to learn about Bennett and Chloe since their roles recur in subsequent books. Now, I devour each and every one. Some (or most) of their stories tip the scales on OTT sexy times, but it's the swoon-factor times 1000 that has me clamoring for more. Seriously, these ladies can bring on the swoon. Even my least favorite have enough of it to convince me that the story is worth my time.

As for Beautiful Secret, all the swoons! I'm a little bit in love with the awkward and bumbling Niall. I'm also a little bit in love with the proper and sedate Niall. That equals a lot of love. CL managed to create another engaging and sexy story with a realistically broken hero falling for a strong, emotionally whole, yet vulnerable heroine. Beautiful Secret might just be my favorite in the series.

Ruby is bright and breezy, an American intern in London. She's also been hiding a raging crush on the buttoned-up, proper Niall, an engineer at her firm. Niall, tending his wounds from a divorce, hasn't noticed Ruby at all until they are stuck together on a work trip to NYC. Niall finds he's missing the spark the Ruby brings to everything, and Ruby sees her chance to let Niall know how she feels. Things get heated, but will the flame survive reality when the trip is over? Friends, this book is SPICY. If you like tall, British beta-heroes and smart, independent heroines, you'll love this pairing. Christina Lauren (the writing duo behind the "Beautiful" series) is turning out some smart and steamy contemporary romances. Happy Reading!
