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

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.

Okay...I gave this a 4 and not for the reason you are thinking. BTW, I KNOW I am LATE reading this, so this is for the other late bloomers.

Newly college graduates, Mia and her two BFFS hit the road to Vegas for some post-grad fun. Ansel and his two BFFs are in Las Vegas to regroup before each return home.

Mia meets and marries the sexy Frenchman, after a drinking binge. Their comrades follow suit, but unlike Ansel and Mia they plan to annul their nuptials. Ansel convinces her to go back to Paris with him for the summer to get to know each other and contemplate her life choices.

While trying to adjust to their new "temporary" life, things get awkward for both. The realization and awkwardness of their situation seems very realistic and I feel for her. I started to regret my rooting for her to go for it....get on that airplane and go to Paris with him....a stranger.....a one night stand. Am I NUTS!!! I mean is she NUTS!!!

They begin to learn things about each other through the erotic role-playing games they play. Real feelings begin to surface and even though things are not perfect, both begin to struggle with the fact that she is to leave soon.

Understandably, Mia is combating loneliness since she has no friends there  and Ansel is harboring a SECRET. Mia experience an uncomfortable situation at a party with Ansel and he finally comes clean. Mia is then forced to do some growing up and figuring her life out.

Great ending and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. This book was not what I expected and I avoided reading it in spike of the high ratings. I was truly pleasantly surprised. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

From the New York Times best-selling author of Beautiful Bastard, Beautiful Stranger, and Beautiful Player, Book Two of the brand-new Wild Seasons series that started with Sweet Filthy Boy - a story of friends, love, and lust.

Despite their rowdy hookups, Harlow and Finn don't even like each other... which would explain why their marriage lasted only 12 hours. He needs to be in charge and takes whatever he wants. She lives by the Want-something-done? Do-it-yourself mantra. Maybe she's too similar to the rugged fisherman - or just what he needs.

Lola and Oliver like to congratulate themselves on having the good sense to not consummate their drunken Las Vegas wedding. If they’d doubled-down on that mistake, their Just Friends situation might not be half as great as it is now.

... Or so goes the official line.

In reality, Lola’s wanted Oliver since day one—and over time has only fallen harder for his sexy Aussie accent and easygoing ability to take her as she comes. More at home in her studio than in baring herself to people, Lola’s instinctive comfort around Oliver nearly seems too good to be true. So why ruin a good thing?

Even as geek girls fawn over him, Oliver can’t get his mind off what he didn’t do with Lola when he had the chance. He knows what he wants with her now ... and it’s far outside the friend zone. When Lola’s graphic novel starts getting national acclaim—and is then fast-tracked for a major motion picture—Oliver steps up to be there for her whenever she needs him. After all, she’s not the kind of girl who likes all that attention, but maybe she’s the kind who’ll eventually like him.

Sometimes seeing what’s right in front of us takes a great leap of faith. And sometimes a dark wild night in Vegas isn’t just the end of a day, but the beginning of a bright new life...

Dating a friend’s ex is supposed to be off the table. But sometimes what’s really, really wrong is actually really, really right.
