[Review] Beauty From Surrender - Georgia Cates

Released: May 30th, 2013

After Laurelyn Prescott walks away from the love of her life in Australia, she returns to Nashville to pursue the dream she's always had and hopefully always will. Determined to distract herself from the pain of losing Jack Henry, she immerses herself in her music. But when she comes back to her old life, her previous problems - and even new ones - comes. When she refuses her record producer's unbelievable requests, she finds herself without a career - until an unforeseen opportunity surfaces. From there, she climbs her way to the top where she might finally find the success she's always dreamed of. But will it be enough to bring her the happiness she deserves?

Jack Henry McLachlan never expected himself to fall in love with Laurelyn Prescott. But he did. After he let her slip through his fingers, he spends the three months miserably 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. She was no longer an insecure amateur. This Laurelyn is a successful woman with a promising career. Her dreams are becoming a reality and he's terrified to lose his American girl because she won't have a place for him in her heart. With only one month to convince her otherwise, will he be able to persuade her to welcome him back into her life? 

This book was awesome. It was honestly heart-wrenching, sexy as hell! and also so sweet and romantic. Beauty From Surrender is the sequel of the way-too-great book Beauty From Pain. I loved loved loved the first book and I thought this one was great too, but the first book was better. I found this book just the slightest bit disappointing but her characters and writing style totally made up for it.

Guys - well, mostly girls - you will swoon and faint with how romantic Jack is here. He was just absolutely adorable. He's so sweet and caring towards Laurelyn. He thinks of everything and he's just ugh too damn sweet. He's like candy canes on Christmas morning and chocolate eggs during Easter.  I understood why he did some of the things he did because that was how it was realistically supposed to happen. That's how we expect real people to react.

Unfortunately, I liked Laurelyn a little less here. She was this extremely hot, tough chick in the first book. She was insecure at the same time but she wasn't that vulnerable, which I absolutely loved. But here, I thought that she was just the slightest bit too whiny and irrational. I thought that she could've been more understanding and patient.
