Overview After Laurelyn Prescott walks away from the love of her life, she returns to Nashville to pursue the only dream she has left. Determined to find a distraction
from the pain of losing Jack Henry, she immerses herself in her music. But with her old life comes old acquaintances and new expectations. When Laurelyn refuses her record producer’s outrageous demands, she finds herself without a career—until an unforeseen opportunity presents itself. From there it’s a rocket ride straight to the top where Laurelyn finds the success she’s always dreamed of. Will it be enough to bring her the happiness she so deserves, or will the absence of Jack Henry leave her wanting more?
Jack Henry McLachlan never expected to fall in love with Laurelyn Prescott—but he did. After he foolishly let her slip through his fingers, he spends three months searching for her, but their reunion doesn’t come easy. The woman he finds isn’t the same one who drifted away without a goodbye. No longer an insecure girl on an Australian adventure, this Laurelyn is a successful musician with a promising career. Her dreams are becoming a reality, and Jack is terrified his American girl won’t have a place for him in her new life. With only a month to convince her otherwise, will it be enough time to make her visualize a life beyond the glitz and glamour, a life that includes him?
Reviews Laurelyn Prescott happens to be lucky number 13 on Jack Henry McLachlan’s love ‘em and leave ‘em list. He never expected to fall head of heels in love with her…and now she is gone. Beauty From Surrender picks up right where Beauty From Pain leaves off with Jack on the hunt for the one and only love of his life. Laurelyn returns to Nashville utterly shattered after telling Jack she loved him and he didn’t say it back. Many months and tears go by as she throws herself into her budding music career. She never thinks she will hear from Jack again. Jack leaves Australia in search of Laurelyn and finds her looking pretty cozy with another man. He leaves without even saying hello thinking someone else might have taken his place in her heart. Their stomach churning reunion is bittersweet but amazing. Jack has one month to convince Laurelyn that she is “the one” and come home with him to Australia.
I haven’t smoked a cigarette in like 25 years…but I considered having one after reading some of love scenes between Jack and Laurelyn in Georgia Cates Beauty From Surrender (book 2). Hot daymn! BFS is the epitome of a perfect contemporary romance novel. This is how you write delicious, romantic, erotic fun. Cates dished out a one hell serving of romance with a side order of smutastic yumminess. The dialogue between Jack, Laurelyn and her best friend made this book not only sexy as hell -- but laugh out loud funny. The sex scenes didn’t get old... they got better as their relationship grew stronger and unfolded
page after page. Jack and Laurelyn’s chemistry is electrifying …especially when they started bumping lips and hips. Georgia Cates knocked it out of park with Beauty From Surrender. I loved the way this story progressed from alternating point of views. I especially loved how Jack evolved from uber man whore to uber caveman man whore in-love. BFS has a little of everything…perfected blended like one of Jack’s fine wines…the ONWTFM (Oh No What The Fuck Moments), lust, love, heartbreak and yes a happily ever after! I have to say BFS exceeded my expectations. I devoured this book in almost one sitting.
Beauty From Surrender is not to miss...it’s a must read. I would highly recommend reading book one Beauty From Pain first. Georgia Cates said she might release a novella. I can promise you I will be waiting to download it. I adore this series as well as Cates writing. I love to write reviews because of books like this. Beauty From Surrender is 100% sweet kindle crack! If I could give this more than 5 stars, I would. You know that feeling you get after you read a really awesome book and you are like, "hell yeah! That's how it's done!" Well that, my friends is how I feel right now.
I absolutely love Laurelyn and Jack Henry. I feel emotionally invested in them. It's been a while since I read a book where I actually felt something. Felt that connection. Felt truly on edge. This was just a perfect read for me. It was hot, sexy, sweet, gut wrenching. Perfect! So many authors are just putting out halfassed junk. Some of it's good, but most is missing something for me. Very few recently have sparked actual emotions.
As furious as I was over the cliffhanger from book 1, I have to say I am over it and the author is forgiven. I will no longer complain if the wait gets me this.
Georgia Cates, I adore you. Laurelyn and Jack Henry have spots in my heart. I seriously hope we get book 3 sooner rather than later. You are truly gifted and I cannot wait to know what's in store for those 2. I have sneaking suspicions that the family is going to increase in the very near future. Please, please consider a 3rd full novel. There are some loose ends that I am dying to get tied What happened to Audrey is one. What about Blake is another.
5 well deserved, perfect stars from me!!!
I am recommending this to all my friends. If you haven't read the first one, go ahead now! Read it,loved it!!! Thank you Ms. Cates for an epic end to a long awaited sequel. It's two days before my finals are due to start, but once i got my hands on the book, I couldn't resist. I swear I tried though. It was a beautiful story; made me cry and laugh and had wonderful moments, especially the parts that included the Mclachlan family. And Jack Henry!! *swoon* Plus a happy ending with no cliffhanger! Thank you for that especially. :D And now I discovered that the author is writing another book for this series! *happy dancing* Cannot wait for more of Jack Henry and Laurelyn. Beauty from Surrender is a must read for anyone who likes romance books. I read the first book of this series when it was released and literally could not wait for the next one. Oh well, when my GPA finally comes in, I can always say "I was busy with Jack Henry" :D Super amazing. I can't get enough.
I am so Fucking happy that I finally got read this book. I was thinking that I would need therapy soon if it did not come out. This me doing my happy dance.
Anyways, we pick up right where Georgia killed us all. Laurlyn left Jack Henry and came back to the US. She is very heart broken and is trying to just keep going om with her life. She returns back to the recording studio with that asshole Blake Phillips and we get to see just how much of an ass hole he is. It was one of those moments that you are thinking WTF and then she handles her business....
She finds a gig and starts to make a name for herself. I LOVE LOVE the stage name that she picked for herself. It was perfect and heart breaking at the same time. She goes on the road with her band members for 3 months.
Jack Henry has spent the last 3 months trying to find Laurlyn. He is very much in love with her and wants her to come back to Australia to become his wife. The road to finding her is not easy. He did not know her last name or where she would be in Nashville. But his determination was well worth the effort.
He comes to her and then......
So he has a month off to get her back. But as much as they both want it her chance at becoming a music star is right in her hands. How do you choose? He wants to be selfish and have her come back. He would never forgive himself if she gave up everything and then regretted it later. Decisions have to be made. Can they survive more time apart?
Let me start by saying that this was my favorite out of the two books. Georgia wrote this so beautifully that I could feel EVERY emotion that was going on. I am totally Swooning over JH right now. You could really connect with both JH and L. The sex in this book was HOTTER than the first one. Shit they were like rabbits, going at it all the time. I really enjoyed the dirty talk in the book. The way that they had fun together. I think I have a "book boyfriend" forever. The pace of the book was perfect, it did not seem rushed.
The struggles that they both faced in this book were very realistic. It was easy to say that this could happen in real life, not some made up fairytale. I am happy with how Georgia wrote this book and where it ended. I don't think there was more that she could have given us....Well maybe a little bit more, but then where would that leave us???
Anyways I give this book 5 out of 5 stars. Loved this book! And series! What I especially love about this series is that you have two people, who aren't perfect, they know it, and they don't pretend to be. But they're not broken people. Sure they have issues, but it's not like so many other books out there with the crazy broken characters that need to be fixed.
What you have I this series are two people who embark on a different sort of relationship and discover they feel more deeply they ever intended, and we learn how they deal with, how they learn to make things right. It's so refreshing.
I love Jack Henry even more in this book. He's totally alpha, except in a way he's not. Laurelyn totally runs the show andhe admits it. Laurelyn is a wonderful heroine. No TSTL moments, she's strong, independent, but knows who her heart belongs to.
I am so happy Georgia left off with a possibility for a third book. I just can't put my finger on what it is that makes this couple so great but I LOVE THIS COUPLE!!
Jack Henry and Lauralyn are just made for each other. They have to be one of my favorite book couples. Each on their own is great, who could resist Jack. He went from being a playboy to a lovesick Mr. Perfect. Lauralyn is a great female lead also, strong but willing to give herself. But together they make sparks fly.
I love that you get to spend most of this book as them as a couple and not them fighting against being together. Even though they have obstacles you just know they belong together.
Thank you Georgia Cates for creating such a hot heartwarming story of a couple in love. Can't wait to find out what is happening to them in the third one. Words can not describe how much I LOVED this book! Absolutely positively brilliant!!!! I adore Georgia's writing style.... She never drags the drama out longer then necessary and writes well developed characters that you fall in love with. Plenty of swoon worthy moments along with hilarious dialog. I just can't get enough of these characters and am beyond thrilled that Georgia has decided to do a third book!!!! Keep the amazingness coming!!!! <3 I have waited so long for this book and it was so worth it. I never was the girl that could see surrendering my career for a man but this book puts it all in perspective. L as Jack Henry calls her did t loose anything she gained more than she ever knew. Her mother was a trip in a half I wanted to smack her at times but I loved how L stood up to her. Dont get me wrong she had some weak moments and Addison her ride or die chick put things into perspective. What can
I say about Jack Henry? I love the way he loves L and even though he is stubborn at times his love is endless for her. And the sex scenes off the chart. Whew! I needed a fan. We get a happily ever after in this book but Georgia leaves room for more. This was definitely a romance in every sense of the word. Georgia has provided a wonderful sequel. There are a lot of twists I didnt expect such as Blake but it added more to the story. This book had me crying out of love, frustration then laughing and swooning the next. Ladies this is a must read.
