4 Jack Henry stars!!!

We began as strangers- as most couples do- but our beginning was so much more complicated.

*Spoiler Alert* If you haven’t read the first two books in the series and you’re planning to, stop reading now. There will be lots of spoilers for books 1 & 2.

Beauty from Love begins the day after Jack Henry and Laurelyn say I do. They are happy, in love, and enjoying their honeymoon. It’s a very sweet and sexy beginning. They both are ready to start their life together as
Jessica's Book Review
Okay I do not really know where to begin. I love Jack Henry and Laurelyn. They are my ALL TIME, HANDS DOWN, FAVORITE book characters of all time. Jack Henry is the definition of a sexy, alpha male, and Laurelyn has a spark in her you couldn’t help but love. Beauty From Pain is my ALL TIME favorite romance read and totally kicks Fifty Shades of Grey in the butt! I enjoyed Beauty From Surrender... not as well but Jack Henry really stepped up and swooned me in every way possible. I couldn’t wait ...more
4,5 Beautiful Stars.

In this final installment we have Jack Henry and Laurelyn right after their wedding.
They are ready to start the rest of their lives, form a family and do the whole “happily ever after” thing.
But things aren’t always as we want them to be and soon they will find out that still are a lot of issues to overcome, being Jack’s past one of the biggest.
So things like starting a family, ex-girlfriends and ex-boyfriends issues will all have a part in this book and they will all

This book is love perfection. The ending to a absolutely wonderful story of Jack Henry and Laurelyn. It is their HEA and boy does Georgia Cates deliver. There are books that you read and love to death- this series is one for me. I love that Jack Henry has gone from man whore to a man that loves a woman with all his heart and soul. His love for L is beautiful, endearing, sexy, wholehearted, true, and to me perfection. L has some issues

The Beauty Series by Georgia Cates is an amazing series. Though I loved book 1 & 2 just a bit better, I still adored Beauty from Love. Jack Henry and Laurelyn will always be one of my favorite couples and while I love Jack Henry, Laurelyn stole the show for me in this book. I thought Laurelyn was just perfect. She rose to all the challenges that their new life together brought her

This book picks back up where book two ended. Jack Henry and Laurelyn have just married, and are leaving for their honeymoon. They have a magical honeymoon, and then return home, to spend their first Christmas as a married couple with his family. I really love Margaret McLachlan. She is an amazing, kind, loving mother in law. She gives excellent advice, and cracks me up with all her talk about "nookie."

-Please read Beauty from Pain first! ^^^

Alas, the best book in this series was the first one. Beauty from Pain was something special and the following books have not lived up to it (in my opinion).

To be fair, I am not one for the lovey-dovey happily together romances, I love intrigue and angst. That preference fits perfectly with the first book but not books 2 and 3.

Meh...this was essentially an extended epilogue. Now, I love epilogues, but when they go on for hours then my excitement seriously droops. I've even been known to skim read smutty scenes - there's only so many times I can read about them exploding together in perfect harmony before my eyes start rolling. And they were rolling away reading this I'm afraid for this, the third in the series about Laurelin and Jack Henry comprised smut, various run ins with toxic exes, smut, more smut, awkward ...more

“I never imagined myself loving a woman the way I love you. You changed my everything.”

Ohhhhh…Jack!!! I love this guy!

The epic romance between Jack McLachlan and his wife- Laurelyn continues in this final installment of The Beauty Series. They are married and starting their happily ever after. Everything seems fine…until Jack’s past comes back to haunt them. Their love is being tested one more time.

Thank God that's done. I truly loved Lauralynn & Jack Henry in the first book, but it's slowly faded as the books passed. Authors need to decide when to call it quits, not every series needs to be a trilogy. Once they start w/the "I love you"'s and "your my wife/husband" every five seconds, the magic has disappeared for the reader, in my opinion. I'm glad they got their HEA, but honestly didn't need the play by play of their baby saga. Also, Lauralynn, get over yourself, your husband has a ...more

Enough already! Once again, there’s an overload of sexual encounters and not enough ‘splaining going on. I had high hopes that Georgia Cates would give this the final book in the series a little more depth and some decent dialogue interaction between Jack and Laurelyn.

The alternating POVs allow readers to delve into the thoughts of both characters which was a real plus since so much time was spent on the bedroom theatrics. Still both characters are fun-to-read and their chemistry is off the

Perfection! That's the first thing that comes to mind when describing this book. It truly was perfection from start to finish. It had that even scale of balance that I love between telling a wonderful heartfelt story, yet still had amazing hot sex! The sex was never overdone, or not enough….It was just right as it was.

I love Jack Henry. I've loved him from the beginning in "Beauty from Pain" & you just continue falling for him more & more as you get to know him. And by the time you

I guess that is the kind of series where the first book is good, and the cliffhanger makes us want to read the rest of the series, but truly, we already know the end of the series at the end of the first book.
As soon as I knew that they were both in love, I basically knew how this was going to end up.
Here my friends is the basic story of most books 2 and 3 in this kind of series.
1. Time spend apart, but love (money?) is stronger
2. Not-too-real-hesitation because she is
So I finished the series. YAY!

I maintain that the last two books should have been condensed into one and a lot of that sex filler, as hot as it was, should have been cut out.

What makes this series so wonderful is how much we know that Jack Henry loves L. That is why you should read this series. It's amazing, and who does not want be loved like that??

Also, I have to admit the author can write some hot scenes!

In this book, the drama gets back to moderately realistic.

This book was not my favorite of the series.

What I enjoyed:
Getting to see their future beyond, "we got married"
Happy ending

What I didn't enjoy:
There were loose ends (Audrey, Lana, L's family issues, etc.). Women from Jack's past make appearances here and there, but nothing that drags out long enough to really worry you. The possibilities for angst were endless, so the book fell a bit short for me.

I was really anticipating this book, but I felt a bit deflated at the end. It even kind of dragged
Before I get into MY review, I'd like to say to the people who don't like my review, please continue crying in my mailbox about how offensive my reviews are. It makes my day the ignorance of people judging someone's OPINION as if it were posted on a newspaper. Slander? Hilarious. Grow up.

It’s the final book to Jack and Laurelyn’s story!!!!

Jack and Laurenlyn are happily married. Now, they must go through all the things that one goes through during the first year of marriage.

I wouldn’t call Beauty from Love very dramatic or angsty. The book was sweet with some hardships, but nothing too crazy. I overall enjoyed the story and was glad to see this story have a proper ending.

Jack is still the lovable alpha male. He’s completely in love with L and will do anything

LOVED this final installment! I compare it to the feeling I got after finishing the final book of the This Man series, it was spot on with wrapping up all the loose ends and hitting those romantic high pts that you wish to finish a series never forgetting about. This book showed the road to a HEA still has a few bumps along the way but that's what makes it all the more rewarding!

This book checked all my boxes:
- Steamy love scenes? Yep, marriage sure just made those hotter!
- Memorable supporting
