Beautiful Bitch (Beautiful Bastard, #1.5)

Beautiful Bitch (Beautiful Bastard, #1.5) - Christina Lauren The blurb is misleading. What combative relationship? They are not combative in Beautiful Bitch and that's why this book didn't work for me. I loved Beautiful Bastard and was looking forward to reconnecting with Bennett and Chloe. At 54% mark I had to DNF this novella and then I really didn't want to. I was willing to keep going and give it a chance. But the constant flashbacks were ruining the book for me. I don't care about Bennett meeting Chloe's dad or when they got back together or Chloe going out with Sara and Bennett being pissed cause he wanted time alone with Chloe. Who cares?!? I want the here and now and there wasn't enough of that. Plus I miss the bickering that made me fall in love with the couple in the first place. What happened to all that heat? Bennett is so whiny and needy that he has become unattractive. He's pretty much a whipped pussy. And Chloe is boring. She's all work, work, work. So what she gave Bennett a blow job in his office, with the door unlocked. They had sex in the stairwell in the first book! *yawn* They've become a boring couple. What happened to the spice?Such a disappointment.p.s. I don't understand the title. I know it's supposed to coincide with the overall series but who's the Bitch? Is it Bennett cause he sure acted like one. I'm just saying.
