The last thing she told Josh Harrington was to never speak to her again, so when she runs into him in the hallway, she's caught off guard. Sparks fly, but it's probably just old feelings resurfacing.

She's someone new, and the pain Josh inflicted remains in the forefront of her mind. However, Mr. Harrington doesn't take no for an answer, and we soon learn he is dead set on winning her back, no matter the cost. But, can Luci forgive?

    ”You broke my heart,” she repeats.“Let me fix it,” I whisper.”Where to begin? This story is told in alternating POVS of both the hero and the heroine. It does start the next day after the last line of book one. To be honest, some of the writing is wonderful and then the story would flip flop to the awkward and uncomfortable. The couple is working their way back to a new together after Luci is set to graduate college and Josh is hell bent on asking for another chance with his former student.”The thrill of me being your student is no longer there,” I pointed out, not believing I’m actually entertaining the idea of us being friends. “The fact that you were my student was the hurdle,” he swallows. “The thrill was you.”Their new found friendship seems to be making strides forward but when Luci takes a student teacher job a fellow teacher, Brittney threatens to expose them. So you see, Luci is still hesitant to start things back up with Josh while he tries hard battling Brittney’s threats, and upon her insistence hiding the relationship from her parents. ”It’s like we’re hiding all over again.”Sexy times hit a nosedive occasionally, with use of terms like 'pole' and then the breast milk scene...seriously, what was up with that?!?!”I’m about to milk the shit out of her.” “licking my pole.”This book does indeed wrap their story up (no cliffhanger) with an upcoming novella based on their marriage coming in the near future. Fans of student/teacher reads, this isn’t a full blown smut read. There is depth and the writing is good just wished at times toned down or edited out parts that go a bit too far. I think the author is talented and this appears to be her first books so hopefully in the future her hero isn’t so full of cum, and getting himself off amount of times can be curbed to the acceptable than the creepy amount because I would definitely read other book her.

    ★★★ 4 ~ 3 STARS!After their heart-breaking event at the end of Beautiful Torment, I couldn't stop thinking about what'll happened between them. They met again after two and half years later. In the school. It was all coincidence. Part of me still angry with Josh Harrington. He thinks he's doing the best for both of them. Uh huh... I don't think so. Never keep sh!t from someone you love.“What can I do to make you not hate me?” My voice is low and pleading. “Tell me and I’ll do it.”“I… I don’t know,” she sighs. “You broke my heart.”Josh or Mr. Harrington asked her to have dinner with him. Can you believe it? That was their first meet again after the pregnant's wife drama. Personally, I wanna shove it in his a$$ but our sweet Luci accept it with heavy burden. The dinner didn't really smooth but finally Josh could explain everything. Still, Luci couldn't forgive him easily. Josh would do everything to make it better for them to be together again. His feeling towards her hasn't changed.“I was wrong. Love is not setting them free, because I've tried that. Love is never letting go. Love is not being able to live without. Love is a fight, because I can't live without her, and I'm willing to try anything in order to get her back!”For a final book, I'm quite disappointing with the plot. It didn't held my interest as the previous book. It's about second chance love, forgiveness and redemption. Apparently, Josh true with his words. He still doing everything he can to protect her. To earn her forgiveness. I liked the dual POV. I'm so happy that I could know Josh' inner mind and relentless. I know it's hard for them. Their love road isn't smooth as I expected. They're some jealous bitch, demanding parents and uncertainty.“I guess how you were scared before is how I am now. No one has ever broken me like you have, and it’s easy for me to let that happen with you again.”“Sometimes, it takes for us to be completely broken to realize what it means to be whole.”My rating has fallen dramatically. Why? I have some issues that really bothered me. Of course it wasn't easy relationship between ex-teacher and student. There was rumor and blackmail happened but not last long. The drama... Ugh, I couldn't handle it well. The sexy times is my biggest concern. It felt corny and not passionate as before. It was just plain sex and sometimes bored me. They couldn't keep their hands off each other. (view spoiler)[How could you forget condom? Too horny to think? #facepalm (hide spoiler)] I just didn't like their romantic because somehow it was too cheesy and awkward? Hmph...Overall, Beautiful Dream has a beautiful ending. A bit too rushed and mediocre for my taste. FYI, I really avoid pregnancy and children. So, the ending didn't give me OHHH effect. I liked the writing but still need some improvement (You'll know what I mean when you read it).["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    I actually think this second book was slightly better than the first. It was more mature and the writing was less awkward. Yes there was less sex but we actually got more of a story line. And it was great to see that Josh wanted more than just sex.I enjoyed it, though that scene at the end with the breast milk. Yeah, that's gonna be hit or miss with people I think.

    Let me start by saying as soon as I finished book one of this series I was opening up book two. I really loved it! I once again lost sleep because of Paige’s books! I’m not complaining about it! It was such an enjoyable read. Luci and her past teach Josh had an affair that ended badly in book one. After a few years apart, Luci runs into Josh after having to drop something off at school for her younger sister. The spark is still there and you are really rooting for them. Will they get their happily ever after? READ IT so you can find out! You will be happy with this hot love story. When there is a warning like this: This book contains explicit language, sex scenes, and is intended for ages 18 and up. You know it’s going to be a good one after reading that. This is book two in the Beautiful series and cannot be read as a standalone. It has duel POVs and you hear a lot from Josh, which you didn’t hear his POV in the first book. I believe there is another book coming out but I do not know when and I think it is a novella. I am super exciting about it because I am going to miss Josh and Emily. 5 stars!My advice:new covers...these are just bad.

    Sadly this is a DNF for me- I LOVED the first book….and I'm obviously the odd man out in this one. The "dirty talk" is so awkward and immature that I skim over it in hopes that it will quickly end. Student/Teacher are my favorites but this one left me …….feeling awkward and "unfulfilled".

    Luci acted and was treated like a teenager still (lives at home and still heavily relies on parents)Josh still never lets Luci make decisions, and Luci for all her complaining seems fine with that

    The beginning of the book was interesting, as we wanted to know how Luci and Josh would restart after everything that happened in the first book. There was a lot of pain and hurt still hanging on and I wanted to know how they would overcome it BUT then the entire book was all about back and forth and unnecessary drama just for them to end up together again (because you know they will) so it just made the book so boring and predictable for me Some part of the story, like the Britney part (the blackmailing, the accidental kiss) was just so unnecessary and soap opera like, yek.Sometimes it was just the hot sex scenes and Josh's dirty mouth that kept me reading lmao The first book was better

    3,5 stars.Much like the first book in this series, I loved the first half before the sex scenes took over and left little in their wake. I became bored as all the character development etc. was pushed aside for something we've already read so much of before in other books and this book's precedent.

    Rating: ★★★☆☆Genre: New-Adult, RomanceRecommend: YesBook 2 of 2SPOILERS Review originally posted on Aoibh ReadsFour years ago Luci fell for her chemistry teacher and then got her heart ripped to shreds from a secret. Now, she runs into Mr Harrington again and agrees to go to dinner with him to hear him out. She can't deny their chemistry is still burning and alive, but she can't get passed being lied to and being hurt. How can she give him a second chance after everything that has passed? But he is not going to give up so easily and will do anything to win her heart back. "Sometimes, it takes for us to be completely broken to realize what it means to be whole."So I jumped right into this after the cliffhanger of book one. This is more of a conclusion dragged out than a full blown dramatic novel like the first one. Luci: four years on she is a student teacher and gets a job at her old high school. Josh is desperate for a second chance but she is hesitant to give him one. However, being back in their old environment helps to reignite their spark and soon they find themselves back in his office like old times. I love that she isn't a pushover and makes him grovel to get her back. She gives him chances and is fair, but she is still hurt by the betrayal and is treading carefully and I admire her strength in not just crumbling at the first apology. Story: this primarily focuses on Mr Harrington, Josh, trying to win back Chloe. She's being very careful with letting him back into her life. There's the added drama of fellow teacher Brittney threatening to expose the pair were an item when Chloe was still his student. The threat didn't last too long to create much drama and the rest of the story was focused on the two working through their issues. Josh:in this book we got an insight into his life and mindset from the chapters told from his POV. I wish the writing was more distinct when in either POV as it didn't change depending on how whether it was Josh or Luci. I admired his dedication to winning back Luci and not just giving up and moving on. It was adorable even. Overall:I enjoyed this but not as much as the first one. It was a nice end to the whole story but didn't have the same excitement. Probably as Luci was now an adult and no longer a student so their romance no longer forbidden. See more of my reviews here

    I definitely loved this book more than the first! The first was great and all but this book had more substance and made Josh more then the horny teacher:) I was disappointed at how long it took for them both to get back together but respected that they didn't just jump eachother. Luci was so awesome and it was sweet that she chose Alice to name her daughter! And I don't know about everyone else but I thought the breast feeding scene was really sweet and kind of funny. Looking forward to the next continuation book! Love Luci and Josh and Alice cute family. And Gracie was a great sister plus props to Luci's Dad for being calmer than Luci's mom about Josh!

    Such a beautiful ending for Josh and Luci. The ending of Beautiful Torture wan't the best ending, but then Beautiful Dream completed the feeling I wished I felt in the first book of the series. It was nice to see Josh and Luci outside school, and learn more about Josh. I reeally learnt to love him more, and finally see the real love he felt for Luci. I can't wait to see Luci and Josh in the future, with baby Alice!!!! Josh, Luci and Alice; such a nice tone to it. They are going to be the most extravagent family. I can already see it. Paige Laurens continues to impress me. I hope she continues to write more books. Esspecially about Josh and Luci. I can't wait to read the book on Josh's perspective; the clock is ticking. You have a fan waiting for it. So please don't keep me waiting.

    After reading the first book I had been way to excited for the second to come out. Seriously mad because it wasn't yet lol. I guess it's the whole taboo student/ teacher aspect of it but my god did I love this book just as much as the first. The fact that she was no longer his student had no effect what so ever for me. The first book built it up so great that there was no going down after :) I loved these characters and their story. The struggle of their relationship and all the drama that comes from how they just met. Let along just the daily drama of their lives! Needless to say I obviously love this author and this book and can't wait for the next :)

    So frustrated..Why anytime I enjoy a story and it has a cliffhanger, the continuation isn't as good. I'm sorry to say I was very disappointed. I gave two stars because it started like it was going to be good. Then hearing Josh speak more and more didn't remind me how he was in Beautiful Torment. Both H and h I enjoyed in BT here they annoyed me. Sorry I don't recommend this one unless you have trouble sleeping.

    Well this was the best read I have experienced in quite I while...when you read daily as I do it is so easy to get into the "book blues". For me to add any book to my favorites shelf it has to really live up to some over achieving expectations. I really liked the male POV, such a great change. I really want to read more from this author.

    GoodI read the first of this series and it continues on after the first book left off. The story this time didn't really grab my attention as the first one did with all the back and forth of wherever they are meant to be together or not but it was still enjoyable to read. With a HEA it draws to a close

    Skipped from 38% to the epilogue cos the back and forth was giving me whiplash and it was getting boring by then.
