Pippa was just so fantastically almost lost in a way, trying to figure out where to go from here, but also kind of amazingly self-assured. She had this great kind of quirkiness about her, she's incredibly kind and generous, she has good family background story that just makes her more interesting, and then of course there is her dating life. She gets home one day from work to find her live-in boyfriend cheating on her, so her solution to just get the heck out of dodge. I have to say the opening of this book totally proved to me that I did the right thing with my pre-order, the scene with her on the fight to Boston is just amazing, it's awkward and funny and uncomfortable in spots, it just perfect, everything I wanted.
Jensen is almost inherently less likable than Pippa, because while Pippa is so open he is so closed off. I mean you have some scenes with him when he is in his home, and he might as well be in a hotel room. Whatever personality is inside Jensen, he keeps it super locked down. His whole life is work and then like 10% his family in the form of his sister. But when this vacation starts and suddenly he is the odd guy out with Pippa, and the two of them start to really interact with each other, he almost has no other option then to start to open up. She pushed him in just the right ways to really let himself outside of the box and to imagine what his life would be if it wasn't so work all the time. Of course there was a catalyst to why he is the way he is, and it's definitely something that is confronted in the book, but without a doubt watching Jensen evolve was how I fell in love with him.
Jensen and Pippa had great chemistry for being so different, it was great to watch them come alive together and how they play off each other. These two are great in the bedroom as well, I mean they could really heat up the page. But for me the thing I love about this book is how much Pippa was able to pull on my heartstrings so amazingly well. This book was just so enjoyable for me, their little road trip was the perfect escape from my everyday life for me.
I was happy with George's Epilogue though...that made me extremely happy.
I loved this book throughout but the ending left me hanging...I mean we never find out if Pippa get's that job, we don't get to see Max and Sara's 4th baby. Things were left unfinished, especially with George who I think deserves his own spotlight after that big question was answered!
I really loved Pippa in this book...she was so refreshing to what you usually see in heroines in books. Oh an don't get me started on instigator Will in this book...he is such a trouble maker...it's no wonder Max plays so many jokes on him throughout this series...Will is just as bad as him when it comes to that.
Jensen was easy to love in this book but even easier to be disappointed in as well...for someone who is so confident in work he has so many insecurities in social situations. Pippa with her unrestrained comfort in social situations, and her lack of caring what people think about her was exactly the type of person Jensen needed in his life.
Had it not been for the fact that the ending fell flat for me this would have been a 5 star review...it really pulled me in and held on to me until I finished the book.
While Will was easily my favorite male character in this series, I can easily say without a doubt that Pippa is my favorite female character. Everything about her, from her zany clothes, to her propensity for saying whatever is on her mind, no matter the situation, was fantastic. She had me laughing out loud on more than one occasion. I would send my bestie a copy of this book to read with instructions to be more like Pippa if I was’t positive I’d get punched.
While I liked Jensen, and felt that he and Pippa were a great match, I did find myself speeding through his chapters to read more from Pippa’s perspective – he was more of a reserved and quiet character while she was really out there. He was just overshadowed by her big personality, in my opinion.
Fellow fans of Christina Lauren know how incredible her sex scenes can be. Something I have really enjoyed about this series is that every couple has different sex scenes – some romance authors kind of copy and paste their sex scenes in each of their books. But each character in the Beautiful series has different kinks (dirty talkers, public sex, hate sex, etc). This book’s sex scenes definitely delivered on steaminess (I had to turn my AC down to 67 at one point because fanning myself just wasn’t working- I will bill you for the difference in my electric bill Christina Lauren).
As promised, we got to see all of our favorite characters return in this book. As a final book, it did a phenomenal job of wrapping up each couple’s story. I will miss all of these characters – I have been following them for years.
My Takeaway: Pippa was my favorite female character to date, and while I felt that she did out shadow Jensen a bit in this book, I loved them as a couple. I’m going to miss the Beautiful Series characters but really look forward to reading Lauren’s next series. This was the perfect light, funny, sweet read.
