Our thoughts...

Deception ~ Tenacity ~ Priorities

Beautiful Bombshell is a quick, fun story about Bennett’s stag party weekend in Vegas. Bennett receives a surprise from Chloe and Max attempts a clandestine visit or two with Sara. This novella gives a further glimpse into the lives of Chloe and Bennett and Max and Sara post-Beautiful Stranger. It has all of the crazy sex adventures we’ve come to expect and love while also setting up Will’s story just a little ahead of Beautiful Player. Beautiful Bombshell is not a necessary read in the series but is a fun ride in between Beautiful Stranger and Beautiful Player. 

Jonathon Cole did a fantastic job narrating, as to be expected. He consistently adds life and passion to Max without going overboard. Sebastian York has a captivating bass voice but I could have used a little more inflection when he was portraying Bennett. York’s voices for the other characters evoked more personality and I felt like that was missing from his Bennett. I know Bennett is a “beautiful bastard” but I would have liked to hear more feeling in his personality and be less monotone and apathetic. I have heard York consistently deliver a manly man with more feeling and missed that here (Tangled by Emma Chase). His performance here is still solid but I missed what I knew he was capable of giving.
