Sweet Filthy Boy (Wild Seasons #1) by Christina Lauren

Sweet Filthy Boy (Wild Seasons #1) by Christina Lauren
This is an adult contemporary romance/erotica novel (Rated NC-17)
(Four Sweet Hearts)
Book Summary
One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like him.

But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation—and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out—Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume—her sweet, filthy fling—to France for the summer and just…play.

When feelings begin to develop behind the provocative roles they take on, and their temporary masquerade adventures begin to feel real, Mia will have to decide if she belongs in the life she left because it was all wrong, or in the strange new one that seems worlds away.
My Review
The only disappointing thing about this book was it took so long for me to get into it. The first 30% was hair pulling. I wanted a straitjacket for some of the times we were in Mia’s head. Yikes.
And honestly, I thought of the book Lick when I started reading. While I don’t think author’s corner the market with certain situations in their book, sometimes, the parallels are too glaring. This was one of those times. While I thought Lick did a better job at the set up for waking up married in Vegas, I thought this book did a far better job of developing the relationship. Which is why I gave this book a high overall rating.
Characters. This author took the approach of really making us dive into the Mia’s head. While most of the time I like that, I thought we were in her head too much during the first part of the book. I think more time could have been spent with her having conversations with her friends, then us listening (reading) the thoughts directly out of her head. But thank the heavens, we did get there. She does fall back in her head a few times later, but I’d already started to really enjoy the story at that time.
Ansel. I really liked him a lot. More so that he was basically a nice guy with enough Alpha in him for him not to be weak. I loved he wasn’t a jerk and didn’t wear smug expressions to get the girl, lol. I didn’t think he was all that filthy. But maybe that’s my jaded view of the world. Lol
Overall, I liked it and look forward to the other two couples in the story. I’m not interested in reading about Perry.
Audio Review
Shanyna Thibodeaux did a really good job with the French accent. I’m assuming maybe there is French in her family with her name and all, lol.
My book boyfriend Ansel.
