The seventh work in the New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling series that started with the Beautiful Bastard, Beautiful Stranger, and Beautiful Player novels. Featuring all the Beautifulcharacters...plus one tiny new addition to the group.
In Beautiful Stranger , finance whiz Sara Dillon met the irresistibly sexy Brit, Max Stella, at a New York City club. Through the series we’ve watched them learn to balance commitment with their less than private brand of playfulness. In Beautiful Beloved, Max and Sara take it to the next step. But the question is: Will they be able to find a balance between the wild sexcapades they aren’t ready to retire, and the demands of parenthood that come along with their new Beautiful bundle of joy? Parenthood: it’s not for the weak of heart.

Beautiful Beloved is book #3.6 in Christina Lauren's Beautiful Bastard series. In the last novella, Beautiful Beginning we found out that Sara was pregnant and Max was over the moon about it. This novella ties up that end with Max and Sara becoming parents and how they deal with the new born.
I am forever ready for more Max Stella so I was happy to read another novella partially from his point of view. As always, Max was his charming self overflowing with love for Sara and his new baby girl. All his endearments in that sexy British accent made me swoon. Max was great and we could see how he has become more protective now that he is a father and a husband.
With Sara, I didn't really find that much of a difference. I was never a major Sara fan but I appreciated how she helped Max cope with the changes they were facing in their lives. This one was a short novella so there wasn't anything more to it except Sara and Max getting back to being themselves with an addition.
We also get introduced to Max's brother, Niall who was frankly, the show stealer in this novella for me. I am beyond excited for his book to come out and for him to finally find a woman he deserves. I am thankful that the wait isn't going to be very long for me. Beautiful Beloved was an okay read.
