Review: Beautiful Player by Christina Lauren (Beautiful Bastard, #3)

(from goodreads)

A bombshell bookworm. A chronic Casanova. And a lesson in chemistry too scandalous for school.

When Hanna Bergstrom receives a lecture from her overprotective brother about neglecting her social life and burying herself in grad school, she’s determined to tackle his implied assignment: get out, make friends, start dating. And who better to turn her into the sultry siren every man wants than her brother’s gorgeous best friend, Will Sumner, venture capitalist and unapologetic playboy?

Will takes risks for a living, but he’s skeptical about this challenge of Hanna’s…until the wild night his innocently seductive pupil tempts him into bed- and teaches him a thing or two about being with a woman he can’t forget. Now that Hanna’s discovered the power of her own sex appeal, it’s up to Will to prove he’s the only man she’ll ever need.

Okay, I have a new favourite book in this series and it's this one. Will and Hanna are such refreshing characters. Will might be your typical male character who loves sex and women but with Hanna, his character is just so much fun to read. We met Will in the second book and you had to love the way he was always carefree and in teasing mood and I already loved his character. I was really happy that this book would be about him.

Learning about what Will's thoughts really consisted of was something I wasn't expecting. I don't know how to explain this really, but let's say that perhaps Max and Bennett weren't the only ones who thought about being with the right woman for them. Will might have teased them, but though he hadn't found that one woman for him, he wasn't totally against the idea of commitment as strongly as he tried to make others believe. 

So enters Hanna....

Hanna always says what's on her mind most of the time. Having a filter isn't something she is used to. I love her character because she was innocent when it comes to relationships yet not so much regarding her job, her studies, etc. Hearing her theories about things that I would have never believed to be heard in a friendly conversation just made me laugh. She isn't afraid to ask questions about things she doesn't understand; she wants to learn to be more social, sexy and appealing and she's taking it really seriously.

When her and Will meet up again after not seeing each other in a while, it might be somewhat a bit weird, but they quickly fall into a routine where both of them interact with easiness and honesty. Will enjoys her blunt remarks and she likes that she can talk so freely around him.

When these two get together though, it's powerful and it made me want to have my own Will. He might have been the teacher, but he's learning a lot through this relationship that isn't a relationship.

But characters learn a lot through this whole book and I really enjoyed reading about them. I could read a few other books about them for sure.
