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?

Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
"How do you move on when he’s every song you sing"
First of all you must read the first book in the series - Beauty from Pain - this is not a stand alone book. I'm not sure if it is rare that a sequel is better than the first, but I thought this one was. I loved every part of this story. It was a nice mixture of both of their perspectives, humor, drama, and steamy Hot Romance. I very much enjoyed the double narration by Robert Black and Bunny Warren. This book, unlike the first, did not have a cliffhanger ending so fingers crossed there is the possibility of more to come and that would make me a very happy reader.
Audiobooks are relaxing and 'food for the soul'.
The "Love Story" aspect of the book was great; however, Robert Black's portrayal of Laurelyn's voice was awful. Again, it sounds nasally. The emotional rollercoaster that the two lead characters go through is truly touching.
I truly recommend this book. I do suggest reading "Beauty from Pain" first to get the entire experience.
Fantastic, sweet and loving
The pain and love of decision
Robert Black's accent as an Aussie is great. However, his voice of Laurenlyn was horrible. They should have had Bunny do Laurenlyn as herself. He does not do a good southern woman voice.
Jack Henry. He was in love and thrown completely off by his feelings for Laurenlyn.
Narration is key to these audible books. Even though the story line was great and I will listen a second time to both books. I would like to have listened to better narration. I love a man with an accent but when a man tries to portray a women it just doesn't work.
Give me a Hot Sexy Book, with a good story to listen to, have that "OH MY" sigh, Love most of what I have, but want more. Tell me it ALL!
Funny, Good, and Sexy
I loved these books, and it had a great story, just had to remember to stick to the story line and remember narrators only read, some are better than others. And I adored the music that was mentioned along with this.
Going to have to say I love Bunny's interpenetration of of Laurelyn. She did a good job with Laurelyn and she even did good with Jack Henry. And I need to say again, I did love these two books.
I think the name was great.. it was a Surrender for both.
These are GOOD Books, first and you have to have the second to follow up. They are a great couple and it was cute, and I laughed at them, and also cried. If you can just keep in mind that the narrators are only reading this, you will enjoy this. It's good. You will fall for Jack Henry. For sure. you will...
This story picks up where Beauty from Pain left off. You get points of view from Jack and Laurelyn. Jack has hired a PI to find Laurelyn and it's taken 3 months to hunt her down. Laurelyn left with the impression that Jack was find with ending their romance so when her career takes off she contemplates moving on with one of her band members. The drama doesn't end once they are hooked back up either. It's a lovely romance. The narration is excellent but remember you have the Australian dialect in there that might take some getting used to. This book is for adults only. Worth the credit or cash.
This book was great. I couldn't wait to see how it would end. The characters grow on you. Please, Ms. Cates, don't let this be the end of our listening pleasure write more. The narration was perfect. Robert Black nailed the voice. Hope to hear more from him. Bunny Warren you nailed it too. Thanks for the listening experience. The only problem is it ended way to soon.
The second installment in the beauty from pain series was just as good as the first. This book could have been much better if not for the poor narration by the male reader. His accent was bad and he just sounded like he was trying too hard. That was the only down side to a very good series. I hope they find a new narrator for the next installment in the series.
It's all about romance in my library! I have a wonderful husband, children and my grandchildren they are my rock.
Love this book!
I love how he tried real hard to find her and to win her over again. The story line was great, it gets to the point.
Yes, the were perfect!
Finishing their story. Had to read to find out how things turned out.
Any of The Marriage Series by Jennifer Probst and the With Me in Seattle series by Kristen Proby.
Roberts voice - Sexy, Australian and rushed
Bunny's - nasal,weird but better
Great ending. Well written. Loved the characters. Would loved for it to be longer with a bit more drama. Something's left unknown. Hate that. But overall really enjoyed the story. Narration better this book, or either I just got use to it.
Good series. Romance scenes were good, although sometimes you got the impression that they did "it" every singe day they were together and we know that is not believable. I enjoyed how the narrators were broken up and they both did a good job. I heard one opinion that they thought that the male character sounded a little nasily (? spelling), but I thought they did a great job--everyone is entitled to their opinion. I am sure I will download other books from Ms.Cates and look for other books narrated by these two.
