Review: Beautiful by Christina Lauren

Tuesday, October 11, 2016

Featuring the entire BEAUTIFUL series cast for one final hurrah!
After walking in on her boyfriend shagging another girl in their place, Pippa Bay Cox ditches London for the States to go on a drunken road trip with Ruby Miller and some of her Beautiful friends.
Scaling the career ladder is the default way to deal with heartbreak—and to just deal—for Jensen Bergstrom. Absolutely buried by his drive and workload, he rarely takes time for himself. But when his sister Hanna convinces him to join the gang on a two-week wine tour, he has a rare moment of cutting loose. Of course, it’s only once he’s committed that he realizes the strange girl he met briefly on the plane is coming along, too. She might be too much for him…or he might realize his life has become too small and needs her to make it bigger, crazier.
With this circle of friends there’s always something going on: from Chloe and Sara’s unexpected personality swaps to Will’s new domestic side to Bennett’s text message barrage and George’s own happily-ever-after. In short, their adventures in love, friendship, and hilarity are nothing short of Beautiful.

My Review
I am so devastated that one of my favorite series has come to an end. I feel like it has been forever since I started reading Beautiful Bastard and to know that we won’t be getting anything else from the Beautiful crew? It’s so bittersweet.
Jensen was always a mystery to me, to be able to get inside his head in this book was like walking into a whole new world. One in which I finally understood him. I understood his thoughts and his worries and why he was always all about work. Watching him let loose with Pippa and grow to adore her and her beautiful quirkiness and weird clothing almost made my heart burst. Pippa was exactly what the doctor ordered for Jensen and they fit together so effortlessly. She was the crazy to his calm and she brought out thoughts in him that he himself wasn’t aware were deep inside him. It was beautiful It was bittersweet. Seeing everyone get together for one last hurrah was so exciting, even if most of what they did was get drunk on wine- which was absolutely hilarious, just in case you were wondering.
In a way, I will always want more of these characters. I will always want to know how their life is going. If they have had any/more kids. If they have been through any hardships and if so how did they overcome it? That’s how I know. That’s how I know that this series and these characters will be with me forever. I will always think of them when someone wants a recommendation- a book that is just as beautiful and sexy as it is hilarious. A book that has a group of friends and family that are so different from one another and yet fit like they were all meant to be in each others lives. Beautiful was the PERFECT ending to this series. It provided a closure that I was so thankful for and one that I hadn’t expected in a million years and yet made me laugh so hard because it’s so like Christina Lauren to surprise her readers with such characters in the ending. I loved Pippa and Jensen’s book. I couldn’t bring myself to put the book down and when it was over and I was forced to say “this is it” - I was happy. It was beautiful, it was perfect, and it will stay with me forever.
