Title: Beautiful Bombshell
Author: Christina Lauren
Review: While the authors hit the right mix of sexy and slightly possible
reality in Beautiful Bastard they went a little overboard in the just plain
ridiculous in Bombshell. Supposedly our heroes our in Las Vegas for the
bachelor party to end all bachelor parties when it is crashed by the
various girlfriends and fiancé. Of course wild abandon sex happens as part
of a live Vegas sex show, in the seats of a theatre practice, and my
favorite, the restroom of a fancy restaurant/nightclub.
If this story is to be believed you can steal a limousine from a Vegas
casino and nothing will ever happen to you. But the biggest thing you are
required to swallow is that a not teenage boy is capable of having sex,
drink a ton of alcohol, race around town coherently, and then have rock on
sex a second time in the space of an hour. Maybe if he was a teen and had
not been drinking a few gallons of whiskey, maybe his refractory period
could have been that impressive.
Plus I get the let’s be sexually adventurous women, but to really find an
accomplished gal who is interested in having public sex multiple times in
one night? Well it is fiction but the beauty of the first book was in and
of themselves each scenario was believable (on a good night), but this
novella pushed too far out of that realm and made it a caricature of itself
– it magnifies the flaws while downplaying the reality that made it so
Maybe the best analogy is Beautiful Bastard is a really steamy homemade sex
tape featuring a super-hot couple and Bombshell is a overproduce porn with
plastic women doing the pizza delivery guy on the floor of their foyer
within 30 seconds of meeting him. But at least this time they left the
lingerie in one piece.

Author Biography: Christina Hobbs & Lauren Billings write under the combined pen-name of Christina Lauren. Separated by the pesky state of Nevada, these co-author besties talk several times a day, agree that Ruby Pumps is the best nail polish color ever, and would, if given the choice, spend all day staring at the ocean from the San Clemente pier.
