Publisher's Summary

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 glamor, a life that includes him?

Another Great Book in a fantastic series

Ladies, prepare to have Jack Henry melt your panties off! If it is even possible I am more in love with him now then I was before! He is simply amazing and such a wonderful man in Beauty From Surrender. Everything I loved about him in Beauty From Pain just multiplies in BFS and he is seriously the perfect guy. He is caring, LOVING, mature, sexy, rich, he is just EVERYTHING that is perfection. He might just be my ALL TIME book boyfriend, yep, that is right! ALL TIME.

Beauty From Surrender picks up right where Beauty From Pain leaves off. Those who have read BFP were given the first two chapters of BFS and know what a crazy cliff hanger/wait this has been. I was one of those bloggers stalking Amazon waiting for the moment it is released and devoured the book within hours! I read the entire book all in one night. I just LOVED IT!
What I loved most about BFS is it still had the same feel BFP had. There are decisions to be made, feelings to be expressed, all with a time clock clicking over the heads of Laurelyn & Jack. Though the story was different it still had that magical feel BFP had. I also loved that it was not cheesy or unrealistic love. They may have expressed their feelings but it wasn't over the top and Jack & Laurelyn were still themselves just like the last book and did not change.

This time around Laurelyn has big choices to make involving her future. She is in the driver's seat of their relationship controlling Jack and her future together. I just adore Laurelyn too! I love her sarcastic personality and her tough wit; she is my favorite book heroine. Jack Henry's mother also was a star in this book. Can his family be any better? Laurelyn is a lucky girl!

The book does leave off with a possibility for a third book in the series sometime down the road. I really hope there is one because there are a few things left to be unsolved and of course I must know how Jack Henry & Laurelyn are doing. I was seriously swooning over the lines Jack said to Laurelyn... gosh this man is my god... like seriously!

The first half of the book is slow, which I LOVED! Sometimes I felt BFP went too fast so this was a nice change and more drawn out. The scene of Jack & Laurelyn seeing each other again for the first time is epic. I am glad it was played out well & slow; made it even better for us readers. About half way through the book, the book picks up speed and quickly goes through weeks and months. I did miss the slow speed of the book from the beginning, even the ending was a bit too fast for me.

I love this book and though it might not be as amazing as the first book in the series Beauty From Pain it is still really great! There are still a few questions left unanswered for me... mainly where certain characters went. I hope this is leading up to a third book. Georgia has said she plans to write a novel or novella for Jack & Laurelyn's story but not for awhile, I want it SOON!

Beauty From Surrender is a great second book for the series. I am always worried about second books but this did not disappoint! Jack Henry alone makes it perfect but the story and characters keep getting better as well.

- Lia "I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!"

Is it finished?

I think it may be finished up but I'm not really sure due to one unanswered question. I'd like to think it is because it would be a good place to stop the story. I do think the author should of wrapped up all of the loose ends. I wasn't as good as the first book. I think allot of these books could be really good if they were just one book.Everything doesn't have to be a trilogy.

- Leesa "I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end."
