Beautiful Pain (Three Irish Brothers #1)

1 star1 star1 star1 star
My decisions were always wrong. I needed to get away from London, I wanted to start from scratch in Belfast, escape from the life that I didn’t want.

Working for Probation Service for the whole summer was going to give me the experience that I needed. I always felt much better when I could help people whose lives were shattered. More

Review by: Lucia on Sep. 26, 2013 : star star star star
This was exactly what I needed! Steamy forbidden romance with plenty of angst, lovable heroine and charismatic hero!!!

When Sophia accepted summer job as a Probation Officer in Belfast, she saw it as perfect opportunity to get away from London and her overdemanding parents. What she never expected was how would this challenging experience change her vision of herself. After years of therapies and unresolved issues, men were never part of Sophia's life. What will she do when one of her "clients", attractive and rebellious Harry, starts to occupy her every waking thought?

Beautiful Pain is typical example of starcrossed lovers romance story. Who does not like to read about forbidden love?
Probation officer and her client.
Wealthy college student and criminal.
Unexperienced girl with issues and naughty boy.
Choose your pick, this book has it all. I really enjoyed reading it!

I loved grumpy and unapproachable Harry was at the beginning. There is nothing better than mysterious hero when it comes to romance stories. He was extremely charismatic character and I was glad that this book was written in dual POV so I got to see things from his perspective!

Sophia is lovely young woman who has really difficult time dealing with stress, pressure and problems. Maybe I wasn't ok with all her decisions, but she never annoyed me and my heart ached for her during various parts of this story.

I have to admit that this book was hard to put down. I loved the setting of this novel and I cannot wait to check other books by this author!
