Part of the The Beautiful Series series
AN UPTIGHT BRITISH EXECUTIVE. AN ADVENTUROUS AMERICAN NEWBIE. A SEXY INTERNATIONAL SCANDAL IN THE MAKING. New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling author Christina Lauren's Beautiful and Wild Seasons series hook up in Beautiful Secret for an erotic intercontinental romp that celebrates the best of both worlds!
When Ruby Miller's boss announces he's sending her on an extended business trip to New York City, she's shocked.
As one of the best and brightest young engineers in London, she knows she's professionally up to the task.
The part that's throwing her is where she'll be spending a month up close and personal working alongside-and staying in a hotel with-Niall Stella, her firm's top urban planning executive and The Hottest Man Alive.
Despite her ongoing crush, Ruby is certain Niall barely knows she's alive...until their flirty overnight flight makes him sit up and take notice.
Not one for letting loose and breaking rules, recently divorced Niall would describe himself as hopeless when it comes to women.
But even he knows outgoing California-girl Ruby is a breath of fresh air.
Once she makes it her mission to help the sexy Brit loosen his tie, there's no turning back. Thousands of miles from London, it's easy for the lovers to play pretend.
But when the trip is over, will the relationship they've built up fall down?

Review by CareBear36
I received a copy of this book through Shelf Awareness in exchange for an honest review.So I usually avoid any books even remotely related to sex because I'm a bit uneasy around that sort of thing. But the cover of this one really drew me in.The plot itself is highly predictable and the characters are only slightly annoying at times (for the love of God, just get together already!), but what really makes this book stand out is its upfront approach to sex. The authors do a wonderful job of avoiding overly flowery language and creepy metaphors and euphemisms and just say it like it is. Each scene details the actions exactly how the happened, leaving nothing up to the imagination. I'll admit it, the book is downright hot at times. The plot was a little dull throughout, because it basically plays out exactly how you think it is going to, but the sex scenes are well written and, at times, extremely drawn out. You read this book for the sex not really for the storyline. So if you like reading about steamy sex, check this one out.The only major thing I disliked about this book was the nonchalant way sexual harassment in the work place was addressed, or rather not addressed. It was something everyone knew was happening and no one did anything about. So while the book ended happily enough, there just wasn't enough lawsuits for me to be completely happy.
