F--k Prince Charming. Sometimes, you need a Magnificent Bastard.
Face it, ladies: love sucks and then you cry while your ex rides off into the sunset banging your best friend.
But why let a break-up end in tears when it can end with sweet revenge? Enter Magnificent Bastard Consulting and me, chief executive bastard. I've got it all - looks, brains, a heart of gold, and the killer instinct guaran-damn-teed to make your ex regret the day he said goodbye.
With the help of my virtual assistant, I've built an empire giving broken-hearted women the vengeance they deserve, while keeping myself far from the front lines of the heart. Life is a bowl of cherries, until my virtual assistant shows up on my real doorstep for the first time, begging for a Magnificent Bastard intervention of her own.
Damn. She's a bona fide sex kitten.
I pride myself on being a true pro, but pretending to be her lover soon leads to giving it to her good, hard, fast, and up against the wall. And somewhere between getting balls deep in my sweet and sexy assistant and watching her ex beg for a second chance, I break every last one of my damn rules - professional and personal.
So what's my next move? Fight for the girl who makes me want to get up on a white horse and ride to her rescue, or stay a Magnificent Bastard to the end?

"Magnificent Story ~ Downright Sexy! LOL Hilarious!"
Bash... aka... Magnificent Bastard is just oozing with arrogance, confidence, and sexuality, and using his talents to earn a living doing what he does best! With his trusty virtual assistant, he helps women get even with their ex's while gaining their confidence, and self respect back. They said he couldn't do it, but after two year's of Magnificent Bastard's Interventions, he's laughing all the way to the bank!
When Bash takes is virtual assistant, Penny, who he has never seen before on as a client, all his skills and self control will be put to the test. From their very first meeting, the sparks started flying, and he and his Incredible Bulk are all onboard, and ready to break a bunch of Magnificent Bastard's golden rules starting with the toe curling kiss, and ending with …. well you know.
All the emails/texts between Bash and Penny at the beginning of each chapter were absolutely hilariously! My face hurts from all the smiling and laughing I did listening to this story! Full of so many laugh out loud moments, quirky characters, teasing, and banter it's almost like a stand up comedy show, but with some serious lust and sex going on! I absolutely LOVED this story!
Tyler's performance was awesome! I loved how he portrayed Bash's character, making him sound arrogant, confident and sexy. However, I think this story would have been 10 star perfect if it was narrated by a male/female duo. But still a Fantastic Job to be proud of!
YES, I recommend this story! Credit or Sale….it's well worth… either! Get it, you will laugh!
"OMG MAGNIFICENT BASTARD"
This is my first audiobook review. I have enjoyed this book. Thank you Lili Valente for this story was amazing. I love the characters Penny and Bash. There was comedy, romance and a little bit of suspense. I loved the way the story flowed. Bash is a charming very sexy man who helps women get revenge on ex lovers thru his company called Magnificent Bastard Consulting. Penny is a woman who is shy and had some self esteem issues when her old boyfriend leaves her for her mother. Her and Bash have an excellent work relationship even though they have never really meet except thru text and email. Bash helps Penny by going with her to her mother's wedding where she is the made of honor but doesn't want to be there. How does this story end? Will Bash be able to help Penny? Do they get a HEA? Don't want to give anything away because you really should read this wonderful book 5 stars
This was one terrific story from beginning to end. The idea of a service to help women dumped on by creepy boyfriends and husbands by showing the jerks what a prize they threw away is so great I wish some smart men would take it and actually do it. However, the story was fun funny heartbreaking and heartwarming. Penny was a terrific heroine. She started out wounded and really let herself blossom with the help of her boss and friend Sebastian.
I truly enjoyed them both as characters and hope lili valence does a follow up with Aiden taking over for Bash.
I honestly wanted to smack her mom for being with a man her daughter was dating and wished she had a come to church moment and see her daughter for the beautiful soul she was.
The romance and steam factor was hot. Sex with laughter is always super sexy in my book
All in all it was probably one of the best stories I've read/listened to in a long time
Well worth the credit!
"Oh my, what a book!"
Wow! I don't even know how to describe this book but it is awesome. I laughed so much. I don't know when I enjoyed a book so much. Wish I could give it more than five stars. Will definitely be reading more by this author.
"Reading it was wonderful, but hearing it, AMAZING"
Yes, there are parts of that book that are hilarious and soooo much fun!
Penny and Bash of course, but also the twins and Adian.
the male voice
Everyone needs a magnificent bastard sometime - and Tyler does a good job with the telling of the story. I do, however, wish he had imparted a little more enthusiasm in some of the parts, to make it sound like what I heard in my head when I was reading it, but overall, it was good!
"Funny and sexy!"
I really enjoyed this audiobook! The humor was spot on and the story was entertaining. The story was about a jaded guy who offers the service of revenge to wronged women and his assistant Penny. They fall in love while he is giving her pro bono service to go to the wedding of her mother and her old boyfriend she's marrying. Laughed out loud a couple times. Good narration too.
"hated the male voice for the female!!!"
it was a pretty good story, but the narrator's attempt at a female voice was excruciating! almost made me not listen!
"Heroine let me down"
This book started out with strong characters. An cocky guy but able to back it up. A spunky heroine. Fun and sexy. I enjoyed it right up until Penny started ducking and playing head games with Bash. She just lost me toward the end. She just gave up, dropped out, wimped out. She treated her "friend"pretty bad without even giving him a chance. I know we need something to bring in the drama but stay true to the character and it would a great book. One I'd like to reread. It's a good book. Worth the read.
"Fall for Prince Magnificent Bastard Charming!"
Both versions are great but the audio adds a bit more fun because of the wonderful performance.
I think it is a cross between the movie Hitch and Big Rock by Lauren Blakely
I loved both characters. Sebastian was sweet, sexy and thoughtful. Penny was strong, loving, and funny.
Prince Charming does exist and he is a Magnificent Bastard!
I loved the alternating past and present sequence so we could understand how their relationship and love grew through their text exchanges. Their banter is witty and hilarious and their chemistry is great with lots of steamy passion! This is a fun and sexy story and I loved every moment of it!
Tyler Donne was spectacular, one of the funniest audio books I have had the pleasure to keep me company while driving to work.
