Jack Falcon is a new man. Three years after he left his life behind in London, Jack finally feels settled. He’s surrounded with everything that is important to him; a great relationship with his brother, Alex, a bar he is about to re-open, and most importantly, he has control of his life and his dreams. He knows he can’t undo the wrongs of his past, but he sure as hell can determine his future. He has worked hard to move forward and nothing is going to undo that.

Until he meets Rose.
Rose Wilson has never felt normal. Since she was a child, Rose has felt nothing but the overwhelming desire to end her life and she has no idea why. We live to die, so what’s the point in living? Rose has pushed the limits in the past, and pushed people away. She can’t figure out why Jack and Alex are so insistent on helping her. Twelve years of therapy has failed to help her, so why should they be any different?
Jack sees just how beautiful and important Rose is, but convincing her of that means putting his heart on the line, something he isn’t sure he can do. He can’t deny his feeling for Rose, but that doesn’t mean he has to act on them. And Jack isn’t the only one developing feelings for Rose.

Before Rose, Jack vowed he would never let himself fall in love again.

Before Rose, he had control.

But sometimes, it’s losing control that makes you really see what’s really important in your life.

My Thoughts:
After the death of Belle Jack went to the states with his brother. Its been three years and he's leading a totally different life from what he was used to. He now owns a bars and is living a pretty decent life. The lovely Rose is beautiful but broken and she has caught Jacks eyes. With the help of Jacks brother Rose was able to get a job at Jacks bar. The attraction is unavoidable and they can't help but want each other.

I really enjoyed this book. Loved the characters. I loved that there was two point of views of both Jack and Rose. It was sweet watching the attraction between the two. There was enough twists, drama and secrets reveals to keep the reader hooked. I loved that there was so much going on. This was just a lovely book and I recommend you lovely readers to check this book out.

Twenty-five year old Jack Falcon doesn’t do relationships, and why would he when he has woman after woman literally throwing themselves at him? For Jack, life is perfect just the way it is. He works hard and he plays harder.

Jack’s life changes when he meets Belle. Unlike any woman he’s ever met, there is something about this girl that makes him unable to keep away, something beyond the youthful beauty and her innocent spirit. Belle is strong and independent, a big leap from the usual brainless chicks he tends to attract.

Jack begins a dangerous game. He is determined to seduce Belle, and without realizing it, his feelings for her develop beyond anything he has ever felt before. Things become complicated when he learns there are good reasons as to why he should stay the hell away from her.

How can you stay away from someone you want to spend every waking minute with? And what do you do when you know eventually you will destroy that person?

As their feelings for each other deepen, Jack struggles with his own internal demons which threaten to rip them apart. Jack is torn between following his heart and listening to his head, which keeps telling him he is not good enough for her. She deserves better than what he can give her.

How far will he push before they both fall over the edge?

My Thoughts:
Jack is your average player who falls for the girl shouldn't want. The more they learn about each other things get complicated but Jack still wants Belle. Jack isnt the guy he used to be and he is trying to do what he can to deserve her but when his father tells Jack to entertain a client.  Can Jack stay true or will he succumb to his old ways?

Enjoyable and predictable. Steamy scenes were pretty hott. Characters were likable. Its rare that I come across a book that's of just the male point of view. I mean I've read many books with guy point of views but its usually a switch off to the female view and this book was just solely Jacks POV. I liked that even if this book was under 200 and took like a hour or so to finish there was a lot going on. Overall I enjoyed this book.

Missy lives in a small town in Central Victoria with her husband, and her confused pets (a dog who think she’s a cat, a cat who thinks he’s a dog…you get the picture).

When she’s not writing, she can usually be found looking for something to read.

  1. Great reviews, Jessica! I love dual POVs and it sounds like it's really done well in Beautiful Rose. I also think I need to meet Jack he sounds like a complex character and one that grows on you. Glad you liked it! :)
