Great series to get lost in

Would you consider the audio edition of Beauty from Love to be better than the print version?

I have not read the print versions so I can't say.

What did you like best about this story?

Their world wasn't always perfect, for a novel of this genera it was nice to have some real life problems in with all the fluff of a romance. But not to much, I listen to this type of book to let my mind rest and be lost for a short time but not to insult my intelligence. This series did that for me.

What about Bunny Warren and Robert Black ’s performance did you like?

Like many other reviewers I was not instantly in love with Robert Black's abrupt breathy style and I am kind of a listening snob, I admit. But I listened to the whole series because I enjoyed the story. By the end I found that I had come to enjoy Mr. Black's performance. Not my absolute favorite male reader but he grew on me. I really enjoy having a male and female duet, I feel it adds a lot of depth to the listening experience.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Eventually everyone has to experience the real thing!

Any additional comments?

This is a great ease of mind series with enough story to keep you wanting more. Characters that have some depth and plenty of sexual heat. When I finished I wished the author hadn't decided to end the series. I think there is plenty of potential for one or maybe two more installments.

A BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN BITTER-SWEET LOVE STORY

There's nothing more delicious than having all three parts to a beautiful, romantic trilogy lined up and ready to be listened to and I happily jumped from one to another as Jack and Laurelyn's love story slowly unfolded.

I haven't reviewed books 1 or 2 as other Reviewers have already done that so well but to recap, Jack is Australia's most eligible batchelor for a reason.... he's rich, handsome, successful and oh so sexy but he's an ass of a Playboy and not interested in a committed relationship. We've gone through him seeing Laurelyn, a beautiful American who's only in Australia for 3 months and the offer he made her of becoming the 13th lucky woman to enter into his 'all pleasure and no strings' relationship that was to end in 3 months. Then we saw the devastation of him totally changing his way of thinking about love, family and commitments and him turning into a caring, possessive, loving and thoughtful man only for him to leave it too late to tell her. We witnessed him trying to find Laurelyn for 3 months and the romantic and sexy reunion which was over too soon. And the heartbreak of him leaving her to decide their fate, future and happiness.

Now, in this 3rd and final instalment, when happiness is finally within their grasp, secrets are revealed and too many past lovers are thrust in Laurelyn's way which leads to doubts, mistrust and jealousies. However, their undying love for each other, together with the support of his loving family, is going to be needed for the biggest challenge of them all.

The romance is passionate, all consuming and very romantic with humor, drama, tension, angst, lots and lots of sex, heartbreak and a lovely cast of secondary characters which all eventually led up to a perfect Epilogue and the HEA ending that I hoped for them both.

Worth a credit? A beautiful, sexy, emotional and enjoyable romance that spanned over 27 hours and cost 3 credits and I loved every minute and gladly spent the credits on a listen that was captivating, romantic and emotional.

Playboy romance. 1POV. HEA. 3/3.

This is a Sexy romance were a rich playboy meets an aspiring country music singer. This is the last book of a three book series. There is an HEA. The narration is ok.

The end.

🤫Complaints (spoilers)
Regardless of my upcoming comments this series was good. I’m glad I didn’t pay for it though as it is a part of the Romance package. With that being said, here goes.

Listening to this series has made me realize something about myself. I’m a vindictive jerk. There is no karma for L’s parents or the numerous women that want Jack.

And how coincidental is it that the couple keeps running into Jacks old flames?

Also, L throws too many tantrums.

This series could have been only two books. There was too much “fluff”. It was a bit boring at times.

And dare I say.... too much sex? It became repetitive and boring.

As for narration, I thought it was good in the first book but, maybe bc I listened to the three books in two days, it started grating my nerves. But it could just be my preference.

The best ever!

Lauralyn and Jack's love story is beautiful but not without hurdles. The narration was spot on. I fell in love with theses characters and the manner in which they overcame the obstacles of their history. You won't be disappointed. Promise!

Nice love story...audio not so much!

The story line was good however the voices on the audio I didn't enjoy. The fake accents & flip flopping between female & male voices by both characters was hard to get past. Perhaps I would have enjoyed reading the book instead.

A Book Beauty

I loved this entire series but especially enjoyed this book that I chose to listen to rather than read. The narrators added a new dimension. Charming characters, hot sexy sex and a quick-moving story. The author goes to my must read list.
