From Twilight FanFiction To Published Hit: Our Review of 'Beautiful Bastard'



After reading the original Twilight fanfiction back in 2009, it has always been one of my favorites. So to say I wasn't excited to hear that The Office was being published as a book called Beautiful Bastard would be a lie! I was very, very excited. The Office was sassy, sexy and fun.  Beautiful Bastard has all that plus more. 

Beautiful Bastard is definitely a page turner, in which Chloe Mills is a confident woman who has worked hard to get where she is in her career. There is one person though that she absolutely can not stand. This person would be her boss Bennett Ryan who is tall, successful and sexy. In the beginning he comes off as an egotistical, condescending jerk, though we quickly learn that he is the total opposite, and there is much more to it than them hating each other. The attraction and sexual tension between these two turns out to make an amazing chemistry. The erotic scenes are hot and will leave you wanting to read more. These two go from hating each other, to dare I say infatuated and adorably obsessed with one another. 

This book has the perfect amount of snark, humor, heart and sex. This is one that you won't want to put down. It is a quick and fun read that I highly recommend. Beautiful Bastard will be released February 12.

UPDATE: The book is also on its way to becoming a film - read all the details.

  3. Decisions, decisions,... the trick is to pick something that I think he could pull off, yet hasn't done before. It's a toss up between youth pastorward in Accidental Atonement and artistward in Last Tango in Forks. Obviously I can't decide between chaste and overtly sexual. LOL!

  4. I'd love to see Rob play the Edward Cullen character in There Will be Blood and the sequel There Will be Freedom by johnnyboy7, because he would be brilliant as a mafia leader. This Edward is tough, heartless, and takes no prisoners, except when it come to his love, Bella. After seeing Rob in Cosmopolis, I know he could pull this off.

    Of course, ideally, he would play the lead in Beautiful Bastard, because I know this book is going to be as good as The Office, and he would be so smoking hot playing this part.

  5. The Office was the first Twific I heard of. I had never read fanfic before but a paragraph into The Office and I was hooked. After reading lots of great various-wards I always thought it would be great to see Rob play either The Office-ward to see him play a smug/cocky business man, play Domward from The Submissive/The Dominant/The Training because to see him play a role that intense would be a cool challenge, or I would really love to see him as Mafia-ward from Emancipation Proclamation because I love what that Edward goes through and how he grows and realizes that naive Isabella teaches him more about life than anyone or any thing ever could. I love/hate how he realized letting something go was the best way to love them.

  8. So much fanfic to pick from... I'd like to see him play the Edward in WriteOnTime's "Breaking News." That fanfiction has one of my favorite Edwards, a smart, daring and charismatic man. Rob would fit the role so well! :)

  14. So hard to choose but I guess since Rob has read Master of the Universe before it became 50 Shades of Gray, then I would choose that. Also loved it and he would be perfect. He wears suites really well and those eyes would melt your heart.
