Review: Beauty From Surrender by Georgia Cates


How do you move on when he’s every song you sing?

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?


I was blown away with Beauty from Pain.  I was left with my jaw hanging open at the end of it.  I couldn't wait for this sequel to come out!
I was on the fence with this book.  I went back and forth between not caring for it and liking it.  In the end, I liked it.  It just kind of drug on at parts.  There were parts I thought weren't necessary.
But then the rest of the book made up for those few parts.  The secrets and drama that unfolded kept me reading the book. 
This book isn't just about Jack wanting his woman back.  It is him proving to her that he does love her and that they can overcome the things that are going on around her.  There are people from her past who will do anything to make sure her life is hell.  She and Jack are walking a tightrope through this entire book.  Between their love for one another and those trying to pull them apart, this book will have you smiling and cursing at the same time.  And rooting for Jack, of coarse!
