Welcome to my blog. Today I'm hosting Lilliana Anderson's A Beautiful Rock Book Blitz presented by Xpresso Book Tours. Thanks for stopping by today Lilliana to talk about your Beautiful series.
The Beautiful Series Continues...
I get a lot of questions from readers wanting to know if they need to read every single book in my Beautiful Series. As much as I would like for you to read all of them, the easy answer is no. Each book is the complete HEA of one particular couple, and if you would like some more insight into their relationship then you can generally find a companion novella from my Beauty in Between series to help you out and allow you to spend some more time with your favourites.
Even though you can jump in at any point, a lot of readers would like to follow the timeline, and read from start to current release. If that's something that suits you then the recommended order is as follows -
Too Close: The Beauty in Between
A Beautiful Struggle
Phoenix: The Beauty in Between
A Beautiful Forever
Commitment: The Beauty in Between
A Beautiful Melody
A Beautiful Rock
I love writing this continuing series as it gives us a chance to get a glimpse of past characters. You get to see that they are still together, still maintaining their friendships and growing as people. The stories span many different industries and settings, but ultimately, all of my characters are Australian, and all of them are working through their early adulthood, trying to figure out what kind of person they want to be.
Learning to trust is a huge factor in most of the series. Some of the characters have had distressing pasts and need to find a way to exist in a world that hurt them.
In A Beautiful Rock, we meet a few new characters as well as getting a glimpse of some of the old. It follows Marcus (we met him in A Beautiful Melody) as he embarks on an inward journey. It's time for him to take a good look at himself and decide what kind of a man he wants to be.
While he's at war with his own thoughts, he meets Lisa Russell. She's new to the series and seems to be the one person on the planet who doesn't know who Marcus Bailey is. The fact he's a rockstar doesn't impress her, and with a few secrets of her to keep hidden, she'd rather stay as far away from Marcus as possible. However, Marcus isn't very good at taking no for an answer...
Within the story, you'll also be introduced to the couple who will continue the series with my next instalment, A Beautiful Star. I'll be really interested to hear who you'll think it will be.
Until we meet again, happy reading!

Title: A Beautiful Rock
Author: Lilliana Anderson
Series: Beautiful #4
Publication date: April 3rd 2014
Genres: New Adult, Romance
After the video of his public outburst catapulted him to superstardom, Marcus now has everything he ever wanted.
Or so he thought. Be careful what you wish for, his mother always told him…
After spending two years touring the globe, he’s growing tired, and that endless line of women has become a sea of blurry and meaningless faces.
When he returns home and receives a visit from Naomi, his previous object of affection, he finally starts to look at himself and what he’s become. He doesn’t like it.
Something has to change…
On the surface, Lisa is a pretty simple girl. She goes to work, spends time with her friends, and adores her dog, Perry. She loves the quiet life and isn’t interested in the bright lights of Marcus’s world. So when he takes an interest in her, she makes it very clear that she doesn’t want what he’s offering. You see, Lisa has secrets, and being seen with Marcus will be the key to her undoing.
Being a man used to getting what he wants, Marcus won’t be taking no for an answer. For the first time, he has met someone who he feels a definite connection with, and he won’t be taking no for an answer – even if it means inadvertently ruining everything Lisa has worked so hard to conceal…
Will Marcus and Lisa find a way to deal with her secrets and be together? Or will she push him away, ensuring Marcus is destined to always have his affections unreturned?
