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 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.

Beauty from Pain is an adult contemporary novel and is not intended for younger reader due to mature content.



Laurelyn goes to Australia with her best friend for the summer. After breaking up with Blake she wants to get away for a while. Once in Australia Laurelyn meets a handsome man in a suit who becomes her lover for her three months stay, once the three months is up Laurelyn keeps up her end of the bargain and goes home to Nashville.

The story line is so gripping and the writing had me enthralled from the beginning. Laurelyn and Jack are so perfect for each other, it’s a shame they can’t see it. What is supposed to be a fling turns out to be so much more, at least on one side, or is it?

Laurelyn’s character is fun, quirky and I had so much fun following her story of her vacation to Wagga Wagga. Jack, well what can be said about him? He’s a no nonsense kind of guy and I can see why he keeps his life separate from him dates. He promised to spoil Laurelyn and spoil her he did, what he didn’t expect where the feelings he develops for her.

There were plenty of steamy scenes I loved reading, who doesn’t love reading about a man on his knees?

Beauty from Pain is a great read, if you love romance your sure to love this sexy novel. I look forward to seeing how things turn out in Beauty from Surrender.
