Beauty From Love (Beauty #3) by Georgia Cates

Beauty From Love was a wonderful conclusion to Jack and Laurelyn's love story. I was wondering what has going to happen to these two and this book fulfilled my curiosity. But at the same time I was also thinking a third book would be too much. I thought the first two books in the series were great and the a third book wasn't really needed. The second book gave the reader a happy ending, however I am glad there was a third. It wrapped everything up for the characters and gave everyone in the series happy ending instead of just the two main characters. The chapters alternate between Jack and Laurelyn. 

This book picked right up where the second book left off. It's the day after their wedding and they are on their way to their honeymoon. The beginning is very lovely dovely and a little steamy. Jack and Laurelyn are enjoying being husband and wife. Jack, however, wants kids soon. Laurelyn doesn't feel the same way. She wants to enjoy each other and not have to share Jack with kids. She is also scared she won't be a good mom considering she doesn't have the greatest role models.

Most of the book is about rather they should have kids, Laurelyn getting pregnant and the complications that come with the pregnancy. Jack's past also comes up. (Why doesn't it seem like every author writes the male character to have a screwed up past that is hard for the female to understand?) Laurelyn stands by her husband, she loves him and wants to be with him even with his messed up past. Laurelyn's best friend also makes an appearance and is pregnant. There is also females that throw themselves at Jack which Laurelyn has to learn to deal with.

The only thing I had a problem with was that there wasn't really one big problem the couple had to deal with but rather several small problems. I would have rather them only have one huge problem.
It seemed like the characters really grew up in a way and seemed way more mature than they did in the first two books. I liked this book but I didn't love it like the other two in the series.
