Magnificent Bastard by Lili Valente
Magnificent Bastard by Lili Valente is a hilariously funny and sexy as hell standalone erotic romance novel.
Sebastian “Bash” Prince is tall, built, handsome, and names is favorite appendage “The Incredible Bulk”. He is the mastermind behind his company, “Magnificent Bastard Consulting”. MBC is a company where Bash becomes a “one-man” vengeance machine. He helps women who have been abused emotionally and finds the best way for them to exact the perfect revenge. But MBC is not a one-man operation.
Penelope “Penny” Pickett is his virtual assistant. Or at least, she was virtual up until just after their two-year workiversary. Penny is petite, curvy, and stunning. Her quick wit matched Bash’s perfectly. She is a self-proclaimed hermit with a weakness for ice cream. She vets his clients before he agrees to take their cases on. He trusts her implicitly as his best friend and assistant. She helps him grow his business and he pays her accordingly. Seems like perfect arrangement, right? It gets better, but I won’t spoil it. It is definitely a must read!
I thoroughly enjoyed Magnificent Bastard. The title alone made me grin, then the description had me laughing. I just had to download the book, and it was a fantastic decision! Lili Valente tells the story from the hero’s POV and as the first title says, it’s magnificent! I enjoyed the email archives between Bash and Penny. I don’t know what it is, but I love those, especially between these two characters. It reminds me of the conversations via email or text with my buddies. Honestly, I love a book that can keep me grinning, if not full-out laughing, throughout the book. There are some seriously HOT parts and some parts that had me in tears, but it ends in a sigh of contentment as expected with a HEA AND unexpected laughter.
You’d have to read it to see how they go from boss and assistant (okay, how many have us fantasized about having a magnificent boss…) to HEA. I have reread this book many times, especially when I’m having a bad day and am in need of a mood lift. Lili Valente, if you ever read this, Thank You So Much! Only one other author has been successful at helping me completely get out of my worries and problems. Major kudos to you!!
