Beauty From Pain (Beauty Series #1)

beauty from pain


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.

Straight away the story captured me, from the moment I read the synopsis I just knew I would fall in love with this book and inevitably the characters. It has romance and true love written all over it.

Meet Laurelyn Prescott an American musician who has gone to Australia with her friend for three months.

Meet Jack McLachlan winemaking multimillionaire with a particular taste in women. A taste that requires no long term commitment, no real names and no contact after the agreement ends.

“My life is complicated for reasons I won’t discuss. When it comes to dating, I need it to be simple and undemanding. Disclosing my identity complicate things, so you wouldn’t know my real name.”

Laurelyn decides to take a chance and go on this adventure with Jack where he promises her the best time of her life. All she has to do is not fall for him.

“I’m a very wealthy man. The three months we spend together would be the best of your life.”

Straight away Jack had me swooning, a good looking multimillionaire willing to show a girl the time of her life I didn’t see a problem. Naturally I wanted the girl to get her man, as soon as their agreement kicked in and they became intimate I wanted them to fall in love and have lots of babies.

I really liked the way the pov’s were alternated, it helped you get into the heads of both Jack and Laurelyn, and seeing how Jack has an unusual dating system it helped to understand him a lot better and why he is the way he is.

This story had me engaged from beginning to end. It moved a long in a smooth and steady pace and I just found myself waiting with anticipation for Jack to admit his true feeling for Laurelyn.

The three months draw to an end and the huge question is does the hero tell the heroine how he feels before she returns back to America?

“I love her too much to let her leave and I need to tell her right this minute.”

This book does end on a cliffhanger and although you see coming it left me breathless. I truly can’t wait to read book #2 and see what is in store for both Jack and Laurelyn in Beauty from Surrender (Beauty #2).
