Everything in my life has changed.
This woman, my paid companion, has turned my world upside down
… while making it right for the first time ever.

We were brought together by need.
Hers was money.
Mine was companionship. And sex.

Caitriona Louden gave me the girlfriend experience.
All of it.
And now she’s gone.

I’m not supposed to miss her.
I’m not supposed to love her.
But I do. Bo

The title of this story truly does sum up what this second part in the duet is all about. A fairy tale between a couple desperate to be together, a nasty villain trying to keep them apart and there is even a castle thrown in ☺

At the end of the first book in this duet everything had turned to shite. The arrangement between Hutch (Max) & Lou reached it’s agreed conclusion but things ended in a way that neither of them expected.

Hutch was completely blind sided by how much of an impact that Lou

This book picks up where the last book left off, with two broken hearts, one trying to move on, and one trying to figure out what went wrong.

After being threatened, Caitriona "Lou" Louden abruptly ended her time with Maxwell "Hutch" Hutchenson. Shutting off all communication from him, to avoid future heartache, she's made it difficult for both of them to move on. What is clear from Hutch's POV is he is no longer than man Lou first met via Inamorata. He is a man in love. He is a man who

This was the second book in the Beautiful Illusions Duet which was filled with intrigue, suspense and passion that captivated from the beginning and never let up until the very end! Hutch and Lou were meant to be and neither would let anything stand in there way, especially a sister-in-law who THOUGHT she had a right to Hutch. Lou was sassy, fiesty and fearless, she was fighting for the love's of her life, which made me love her even more. Hutch was fighting for what he wanted, a woman that brou ...more

Beautiful Ever After is the conclusion to Beautiful Illusions and definitely an amazing duet.

Georgia gives the reader a note on she came to create this duet; unless you are a huge Georgia Cates fan, it will be like you are reading a whole new idea, which technically you are. But I appreciate her honesty and love that she did not hide anything from readers.

On to the book -

Beautiful Ever After gives us the answers we craved from book one and delivers us the HEA we knew was coming. However, Hutch

I received an arc in exchange for an honest review. Thank you so much Georgia Cates and Candi Kane PR for this opportunity. This was a great end for this duet. I absolutely adore Cait “lou” and Hutch together. It was beautiful seeing what started out as an arrangement turn into beautiful love between two characters. I loved Cait’s character so much, she is so strong and a beautiful person. Hutch was very hot, even for an “old” guy😉 I loved seeing him fall in love with Cait, even after his past. ...more

Dei 3,5 para o dueto. 4 estrelas no primeiro livro e 3 para esse segundo que achei mais fraco.

Existem momentos na vida que tudo que queremos é um livrinho agradável e envolvente para ler. Esses dois foram os escolhidos da vez!

Caitriona/Lou é uma jovem lutando para se manter e pagar o final de sua sua graduação. A solução que ela encontra é trabalhar como acompanhante de luxo e, logo no seu primeiro contrato, sua vida muda completamente.

If you are like me you read both book 1 and 2 in rapid succession. Book 1 literally just ends and no matter how hard you swipe your kindle no more pages arrive.. even if you yell at your kindle and shake it … trust me I tried.. don’t be like me.. and just have both books ready to rock.

Beautiful Ever After is the final book in this Duet, and what an incredible ending! I love the writing idea behind this Duet. The ‘story’ fusion is such a clever idea and works so well. A skilful amalgamation of Georgia Cates’ best work. From the fears of loss and regret to the euphoric highs of love reclaimed, Hutch and Lou’s story spans all the wonderful feelings you need in a beautiful ever after. The writing is stellar and truly breathtaking. This story is all about the strength of the love ...more

Brilliantly written with an epic storyline. This book will consume you, devour you and pull every emotion out of you. Such a fantastic story that is not only unique but truly beautiful, passionate and unforgettable. One of my all time favorites, and one of the best books out there.

4.0 4.5 stars! Beautiful Ever After (Beautiful Illusions Duet #2) picked up where Eighty-One Nights
(Beautiful Illusions Duet #1) left off, without skipping a beat. The end of the first book ended with one heck of a cliffhanger. I couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen with Lou and Hutch. As the title implies, it’s a beautiful ever after, although it wasn’t an easy path for Hutch and Lou. For starters, Hutch needed to learn Lou’s real name and recognize his feelings for her. The ending was

Great ending to this duet. I loved seeing the Breckenridges in this one and it was quite satisfying how they took care of Blair. Love the "Bella Mafia" thing.

I look forward to another Georgia Cates book.

Absolutely loved this duet! A wonderful plot with experiences of characters and locations as a nod to the authors other existing series that’s just enough to make a reader want to read more about the other series but no so much that it takes away from the duet.

Loved the conflict, the emotion and best of all...their beautiful ever after.

Currently one of my personal top 5 reads for 2019 but don’t start with Beautiful Ever After, you NEED Eighty-One Night.

4 “Beautiful Ever After” stars!

Eighty-One Nights made us fall in love with Lou and Hutch and then broke our hearts when they were torn apart. Beautiful Ever After throws us back in their lives with Lou gone and Hutch going crazy over the situation. He’ll do anything to find her and figure out what went wrong. Once he does, he refuses to let her slip through his fingers again and has every intention of making her his forever.
I was afraid to love her. Now, I’m more afraid to lose her.

Thankfull

According to Caitriona Louden, especially after her experience as an Inamorta paid female companion, love is a beautiful illusion…it’s nothing but a fairytale, something fictitious and impossible, which means that regardless of the validity of feelings, the lie is easier to believe than the truth, no matter how much one or both parties wish things were different.

Maxwell Hutcheson wanted the girlfriend experience, but he thought he wanted one with an expiration date and that’s exactly what he ge

Pure perfection! This book was so much more than I expected! ! I couldn’t wait for the conclusion of Hutch and Lou’s story and to be honest I didn’t think that second part of this duet would turn out to be even better than I thought. But Georgia Cates outdone herself and Beautiful Ever After filled my heart with all possible feelings - sadness, loss, grieve, but also anger, determination and hope. And the whole long path I went along with the characters found its finish in a happy place- beautif ...more

Georgia Cates gave me another beautiful, dreamy and fairytale romance in Beautiful Ever After. This is the sensational conclusion of Hutch and Lou's epic love story.

Imagine your favorite fairy tale got a sexy, steamy and dirty twist with modern outlook. And you will have Beautiful Ever After. Max aka Hutch has become ever more alluring and delectable in this book. Like a fine wine, he will age and become even better.

***4 Stars***

After finishing Eighty-One Nights I couldn’t wait to see just how Max and Cait would get their HEA with all obstacles in their way and I have to tell you, the wait was worth it. The feels were real, there were a couple of twists that I hadn’t seen coming and I loved how everything worked out for Max and Cait.

I have to admit that the way things start off were a little shaky and emotional on all fronts and I did wonder just what would be the catalyst that would finally bring Max and

Lots of romance and drama for the conclusion of this duet.

It still has this breezing writing style that makes the reading go by quickly. The events, though, are quite dramatic. I felt so sorry for Cait/Lou, her suffering is real and terrible.

At least, the passion between she and Hutch is back and infused with a touching love. It’s quite intense.

The enemies surround this forbidden couple, but family also embraces them. I really liked how close they become, the huge change in his views on commitme

5 Star review of Beautiful  Ever After (Beautiful Illusions Duet #2) by Georgia Cates

Georgia Cates is a relatively new author to me. I was intrigued when I read the blurb for this duet.

Maxwell (Hutch) Hutcheson is reeling from the fact that Caitriona Louden walked away from him after their contract ended.

Neither of them had expected the connection between them and yet the flames burned bright between them. I was drawn to both these characters and Ms.Cates style of writing drew me in and kept me

Beautiful Ever After is basically a Scottish Cinderella story coming to life. And I'm a sucker for fairytales.

Cait and Max's relationship is not an easy one. It's actually a very unusual one. But that just makes it even more beautiful and make you cross your fingers for them until they cramp up.

They already had some bumps on the road, but in this conclusion of their story, things make it almost impossible for them to be together.
They experience heartbreak, loss, and even after that they hold ont

What a great ending for this duet. You really have to read the first book to understand more about this beautiful love story.
The book starts where it left on the first instalment and although there isn't that much angst overall, I enjoyed both points of view and how they tried to cope with being separated and maybe not having a chance for a future together. The hot intimate moments show again how much two people can go mad about one another when in love.

Beautiful Ever After was the perfect conclusion to this duet. I loved seeing Hutch and Lou finally stick up for and fight for their love and relationship. The best part of this book was seeing Lou come out of her shell and really stick it to Blair.

Seeing some favorite characters from Georgia's other series was also a treat. I loved how they were willing to help, no questions asked.

This is fun, fast paced duet and perfect to read on the weekends or those vacations that are coming up. I adore Geo

Fast paced quick read, I found this installment more passionate, intimate and sensuous.
This is book 2 in the Beautiful Illusions duet, so make sure your read book 1 Eight One Nights first as it starts where Book 1 ends.
That said, this felt like the conclusion of the series.
Revelations are revealed and all the lose ends are tied up nicely.
As an added bonus a few surprise visits from prior characters make an appearance.
