Review: Beautiful Boss, by Christina Lauren

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.

4 out of 5 stars

I was beyond excited for an opportunity to catch back up with probably my favorite couple of the Beautiful Series.  As we check back in with Will and Hanna we learn things are about as close to perfect as each of them can imagine.  Happily engaged, hours from walking down the aisle, these two couldn't be more ready to begin their journey as husband and wife.  I mean what's a few big decisions neither one of them seem to be able to talk about?

I love that even though Hanna has found the one person who can bring her out of her shell, at her core she is just as nerdy as ever before.  She quite literally has every one of her dream schools begging her to come work for them.  While Will's encouraged her to follow her dreams because he can work from anywhere he didn't expect to be left out of the decision making process entirely.

Hanna thinks she's found a balance between work and having a life, but has she really?  Marriage is about two people make a life together, but old habits die hard and Hanna doesn't even realize she is inadvertently leaving her husband out of the picture.  Throw in her fear of having tough discussions because "they never fight" and you've got yourself a story!  

Will is honestly the best.  He loves this girl and it's clearly evident in his constant support of Hanna as well as his encouragement and leadership in nudging her to to have those hard conversations while at the same time reassuring her that she is still has and will always have his love.  I also enjoyed seeing the gang back together!  This is a fun crowd of book characters and any time spent with them is time well spent.
