Publisher's Summary

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 makes 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 as 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 listeners due to mature content.

I have to admit that I love the M/F narration. I will warn you in advance that this one will leave you hanging and you will have to go on to the next book, but the good thing is that you won't have to wait. I enjoyed this book. In my opinion it's not overally sexually explict (wish it was "hotter"). It is a decent love story and it holds your attention. I consider it a credit well spent.

- 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."

OMG! Loved this book.....

I am on a book high after listening to Georgia Cates Beauty From Pain. High...yes this book was some of the finest audible Crack I have ever devoured. There are only a few books that make it too my all time favorite's shelf...and this is one of them.

Laurelyn aka Paige is an attractive twenty-two year old aspiring country music artist, avid pole dance exercise enthusiast and happy-go-lucky sort of person (she somewhat reminded me of Mary from the movie Something About Mary.) Laurelyn and her best friend Addison take a much needed vacation all the way around the world in Australia. On her first night out on the town she meets Jack aka Lachlan.... who stalks her like a hunter selecting its prey. Jack is a super attractive, Aussie vineyard owner who wants nothing more than to add Laurelyn to his no strings attached anonymous piece of ass list. Laurelyn is super attracted to Jack and has no idea he is Australia's most sought after eligible bachelor. Jack lays his cards on the table by offering Laurelyn a relationship "agreement" with promises of the slamming sex and fun while she is on holiday with the expectation of nothing more. Laurelyn dives into this relationship understanding that she will cease to exist in Jack's life when her three month trip is over and they part ways. She doesn't think she will fall for Jack since she will be going back to the US. Jack is thrilled that she agrees to their commitment free relationship with a firm expiration date in place. She didn't expect that her heart would ever turn into emotional road kill. He didn't think he would ever want to settle down...and this is their story.
I have to say I LOVED this book. Cates writing style is brilliant and engaging... and awesome steam factor. Listen to this books now...if you can deal with a cliffhanger ending. Cates published the first chapter of book two...which will hold me over. Ok...truth be told I'm dying for the next book. Cates is a writer to watch and this book effing rocks!
