Title: Sweet Filthy Boy
Author: Christina Lauren
Series: Wild Seasons #1
Genre: new adult, romance

One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like him.

But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation—and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out—Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume—her sweet, filthy fling—to France for the summer and just…play.

When feelings begin to develop behind the provocative roles they take on, and their temporary masquerade adventures begin to feel real, Mia will have to decide if she belongs in the life she left because it was all wrong, or in the strange new one that seems worlds away.

Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

*3.5 Filthy stars*

“Life is built of these little horrible moments and the giant expanses of awesome in between.” 
The story starts with the wild weekend in Vegas where Mia and her friends decide to celebrate their graduation. Mia carries lot of baggage of her past and unsure future but that weekend she decides to let go of her life and for once wanted to be somebody else not tied up by burden of being a responsible daughter. Her wild side sees the light of day when she lays her eyes on Ansel. He is gorgeous and charming with hot body and there's undeniable attraction between them.
“You should see him with his shirt off.
Ansel rocks on his heels, sipping his drink.
Please continue as if I'm not here.
This is fantastic.”
What started as sex marathon one crazy night ends up with Mia and Ansel getting married.
“Which was your favorite? Living room, or bed, or floor, or bed, or wall, or mirror, or bar, or floor?” 
Here’s when the story gets interesting, while Lola and Harlow (Mia’s friends) annul their marriage with Oliver and Finn (Ansel’s friends), Ansel convinces Mia to give their marriage a try and to spend the summer with him in Paris. Sounds crazy right!? Marrying a complete stranger and to top that follow him to Paris, but with Ansel she actually feels alive, he makes her brave, wild and seductive. She wants to relive this life before she follows the path her father wanted for her.
“I want to love all of my life as much as I love this night.” 
Escaping to Paris and extending her fling brings both of them together, they push the boundary of their sexual life which change the direction of their growing relationship. What starts as fun and careless transforms to something strong and meaningful. That summer changes both their life, even Ansel the most impulsive and fun loving is also struggling to right his past and have a normal life, but when Mia finally considers to remain married to Ansel his past threatens their future.

Will Mia forgive him for hiding the truth? Was that the reason he asked her to spend summer in Paris so as to redeem himself? What happens when this adventure ends?

This was surprisingly a good read, it was blend of funny, sexy, dirty and passionate romance. It had me smiling and swooning most of the time. What I loved more was the strong friendship Mia and her friends share, can’t wait to read their story.

I would love to rate higher if it was not for tons of sexual encounters taking huge space in the middle of the story, not complaining about the hotness here ladies but wish it was plot driven. Though the ending was sweet it felt rushed. All in all enjoyed this sweet filthy Story of discovering oneself.
