From the New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Bastard, Beautiful Stranger, and Beautiful Player, Book Two of the brand-new Wild Seasons series that started with Sweet Filthy Boy-a story of friends, love, and lust.
Despite their rowdy hookups, Harlow and Finn don't even like each other...which would explain why their marriage lasted only twelve hours. He needs to be in charge and takes whatever he wants. She lives by the Want-something-done? Do-it-yourself mantra. Maybe she's too similar to the rugged fisherman-or just what he needs.
Read by Sebastian York and includes a bonus scene only available on audio!

Love the characters, love the narrators and love the storyline! Shayna did so well differentiating Mia's and Harlow's character. It really felt like 2 diff persons. And need I say more abt Sebastian York? You wont regret this book! 😊
Book 2 in the Wild Seasons series and, quite possibly my favourite to date. We meet Harlow and Finn in Sweet Filthy Boy after they got married in Vegas. They of course, got their marriage annulled and that was possibly it for their relationship, but no, they hook up once more, for what we think will be the end for them, until Finn visits his friends during a business trip, and, wham bam, here we go again. The chemistry between these two is off the charts, I really felt the intensity and the feelings that were written into the story. They are both dealing with some pretty traumatic events in their personal life, and both choose to deal with them by getting lost in each other. I love the honesty between Harlow and Finn, the way they don't hold back and just say what they are feeling, no games. Wonderful story, beautifully written as always. Perfect, Sebastian and Shayna nailed it, perfect duo.
"I loved the story."
I would consider the book better than the audio only because I don't care for the female narrator.
The story was funny, sad and fast moving. 3 things I love in a book.
Sebastian York is wonderful as a narrator. Shayna Thibodeaux I just can't warm up to her. This is the second book I have with her narrating. Once I knew she was going to read it I really had think about getting the audio.
I love Christina Lauren Books. I just wish they would get another female narrator. The Beautiful Series I listen to over and over again. This series once is enough only because I don't like the why Shayna Thibodeaux narrates.
"Dirty Sexy Finn"
I don’t know how they do it but Christina and Lauren know how to bring on the sexy. This was another great addition to the Wild Seasons series. Finn was one deliciously dirty, sexy boy! This book had all the great banter and humor that is typical in all CL books. Not to mention all the steam too…..
Another 5 star listen!
"I LIKE IT DIRTY!!"
Dirty, rowdy, & deliciously awesome, Christina Lauren did a bang up job in the second release of this series. Sweet Filthy Boy (book 1) was merely the warm-up for this one! Something about these stories and characters that makes me want to know them and befriend and/or bed them---seriously, all these twenty- to thirty-something's are SMOKING HOT, and totally endearing.
I loved that I laughed throughout almost every chapter, and am immediately going to listen again because it was just that good. I can't wait for more from this dynamic writing duo! They know how to craft a smart and sexy novel with interesting characters that you'd absolutely need to know more about. I highly recommend this series and give it 5 fantastic stars!
"My new favorite Authors and Narrators"
DRT is a continuation of the story of 6 friends who meet in Las Vegas and spontaneously get married. While the couple in the first book decide to give marriage that fighting chance this book follows the two most unlikely couple to stay together. Finn and Harlow live in two different countries and have their own personal issues that should completely spin their world out of control however, find comfort in the knowledge that a few restless hours lost in each other can dull the pain of real life. Finn opens up about his family and business issues that could either make or break his and his family's livelyhood but Harlow who is a problem solver for others fails to share her personal issues with Finn.
I love the complexity of the characters and how their problems are realistic and engaging for the reader. The sex scenes (which all Christina Lauren books are known for) are racy but very intense and intimate. They never come across as raunchy or misplaced just to make the book erotic. It is sensual and personal. I will always be a fan of these two authors.
The narration is fantastic. Sebastian York is dreamy with that voice and Shayna Thibodeaux is quirky and quick paced with her words but she rocks the narration. DRT was my favorite so far. Looking forward to the next story which you get a little preview in this book.
I don't know what more to say other than as writers you totally know what we NEED! For me personally, when I escape into a book, I want it to be in a place where I can imagine knowing the characters or in some cases relating to a character as myself. As an new audiobook narrator, I listen to TONS of audio books for "research" purposes and a whole lot of pleasure, and Shayna and Sebastian are so very talented. I LOVE everything they do and learn something every time I listen to their narrations. Thank you for creating such "real" and "raw" places for us to go to when our worlds become to much!
"One of my favorites!"
Already have :) If you listened to it, you don't need to ask why.
Character development, narrators are great!
Yes I have! This is my 3rd favorite, but I have high standards!
Yes, and I did (as much as possible)
Christina Lauren - amazing writers - perfect casting to narrate. If you haven't experienced the Beautiful Bastard series, go there, NOW! Each book gets better and better!!
"Not as good as the first."
I was very excited about this book because I loved the first book in this series, Sweet Filthy Boy. Sadly this book just didn't measure up. Still an okay listen, especially since the narrators are some of the best.
I deeply disliked these characters. More so then any in all of the CL books. Their personalities, the way they treated each other, their cavalier attitude about promiscuity. I love well done sex, but Harlow, women's lib is about more then being a self-righteous semen receptacle. The guy, Finn was a total asshole from start to finish, and completely one dimensional. I didn't buy him as Canadian (an American in sheep's clothing more like). Is this what passes for love and romance these days? Horrifying.
Beginning was amazing!
Middle was amazing!
Close to the end... Finn became a Dick head!
if someone that was "in love with me" treated me that way, and talked to me that way, I would NOT go after him! I was SO annoyed! he became a total jerk!!
now that I vented, I'll go and finish the last few chapters, hopefully he can redeem himself! I have my doubts! ~ Kim
"love the narrators!!!"
the story is fun and full of sexy times. as always Chistina Lauren delivers an excellently written book. the narrators are awesome as always.
