Beauty From Pain (Beauty Series) (Volume 1) - Georgia Cates 4 STARS YES, there is a cliffhanger and no I do not regret it ;) Off course I want the 2nd book but unfortunately we have to wait for early summer (US Summer – and not South Africa summer because that will only be in December 2013 ☺) I really like this book. We meet Jack and Laurelyn, Laurelyn goes to Australia for 3months and meets Jack in a bar. Jack wants nothing but a affair for 3months and nothing more just a fun time and sex. He makes her an offer that she cannot and doesn’t want to refuse. Nothing goes according to plan. And the story is about their 3 months “affair” and how they learn more about each other. Jack is a rich multi billionaire and possessive in a way but it wasn’t as bad as in the other books where you get this possessive men that is just over the top. In I way I could understand why he was acting that way he was starting to fall for her and didn’t want to share her with anybody I loved it when she told him her age and his expression. I kind of expected the book to end this way, so it was nothing “new”. As you know I knew there was going to be a cliffhanger but a girl can still dream for HEA hey? ☺ I don’t want to give away too much of the story. What I can say the steam was off the charts. The Pole dance scene! WOW! That was hot. I first had to listen to the song “Angel” by Massive Attack – I could actually “see” her dancing. Oh the imagination is a wonderful thing, but I don’t think I will attempt it soon, might just break an arm, leg and my neck ☺ (I got the picture from the Authors website) The letter to Jack had me crying it was so sad ☹ FAVOURITE QUOTES / LINES “Listen to me, Laurelyn. The best way to get over somebody is to get under someone else”“Liar, liar. My pants are so on fire. And so is the rest of me” “He’s hotter than the devil’s ass” “Baby, you’ve fucked my mind without touching my body” I have to say the two best lines in the book was “Mmm. Tastes like chicken” Bwahahahaha! “I’ll be a minuteman. Promise” HahahahahaThere are 2 things I want after this book: 1. A pole – ok I first need a instructor before I break something 2. I want my hubby to take me to the Opera hie hieI really enjoyed the book and I really hope you will also. Thanks Natasha for the the buddy read. Was fun. Over and out. xx
