Publisher's Summary

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

Awesome!

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.

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!

Would you consider the audio edition of Magnificent Bastard to be better than the print version?

Both versions are great but the audio adds a bit more fun because of the wonderful performance.

What other book might you compare Magnificent Bastard to and why?

I think it is a cross between the movie Hitch and Big Rock by Lauren Blakely

Which character – as performed by Tyler Donne and Summer Roberts – was your favorite?

I loved both characters. Sebastian was sweet, sexy and thoughtful. Penny was strong, loving, and funny.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Prince Charming does exist and he is a Magnificent Bastard!

Any additional comments?

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!

Reading it was wonderful, but hearing it, AMAZING

Would you listen to Magnificent Bastard again? Why?

Yes, there are parts of that book that are hilarious and soooo much fun!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Penny and Bash of course, but also the twins and Adian.

What does Tyler Donne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

the male voice

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

both!

Any additional comments?

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!

Very Cute...

Even with bastard in the title, this is a very cute, sweet, quick read, all from the hero’s point of view, with one chapter glimpsing into the heroine’s. So if you believe—no more like, have been lead to believe this is from both points of view, let me assure you it is not.


***SPOILER***

Talking about or hearing the hero talk about how great it would be to knock up the heroin, in some way of showing her that’s how much he loved her, and him coming to realize with That thought that he loved her, made this book get only 3 stars. So not into that kind of stuff. Gross.

He’s the man for the job!

The premise of this audiobook is that the hero runs a business that helps women get revenge on two@timing, double crossing boyfriends. It’s really funny and has moments that made me chuckle aloud. When his assistant, who he’s never really noticed as a woman, needs his services he gets involved. By getting into her business he starts to see that she’s actually sweet, and attractive and nice... guess who starts to fall for his client? Narration was well done.
