They agreed on three months…but their love knew no boundaries.

Jack McLachlan is a winemaking magnate and easily one of Australia’s most eligible bachelors. His success and wealth make him no stranger to the complications of romantic relationships and that’s why he goes to extreme measures to avoid the hassle. He prefers simplicity in the form of a beautiful female companion with no strings attached. He arranges relationships like business deals and they’re always the same. No long term relationships. No real names.

It’s his game and his rules. He’s content to play as usual, but when Laurelyn Prescott enters his life, his strategy must change because this player is like none he’s ever encountered. His world is turned on its head after he begins a three month affair with the beautiful American musician. Nothing goes according to plan and as he breaks more and more of his own rules for her, she’s exceptionally close to becoming something he never thought possible. His ultimate game changer.

Not recommended for younger readers due to sexual content and language.

Book Dame Rating: 5 stars 

I loved Beauty from Pain, this book had it all for me! I’m not even sure where to start! I mean it takes place in Australia, a love story from down under! Laurelyn takes off with her best friend from Nashville to mend her achy breaky heart, come on how many of us dreamed of doing  just that!   Jack McLachlan started out on an iffy note for me, I usually don’t like cocky arrogant men. So when he starts paying the waitress to get info on “the American girl” I’m already making him the villain! I find myself pushing Laurelyn Prescott towards Ben Donavon (her BFF older brother), boy oh boy don’t want to give to much away! Georgia Cate wrote this book flawlessly, it meshes together so well! The switching from Jack to Laurelyn’s point of view was seamless.  I couldn’t put this book down, outstanding writing, characters and timing. I love how Laurelyn and Jack’s love grew so naturally and seemed so real. I never wanted it to end but even that was flawless, can’t wait for book 2! I want to warn you I did laugh, and cry and cry a little more! But then again I cry over just about everything!

So now I try to patiently wait for Book 2 Beauty From Surrender, guess you know what I’ll be reading May 30, 2013!!!
