      3.5 Stars!I'm a total sucker for a man in uniform, and this particular military man is a gem! Blake wasn't afraid to love, and he was patient enough to help his girl come around to the same conclusion. Having the male character be the first to fall in love and have to convince the leading lady to come along was an interestingly different perspective. I liked the maturity of the characters, and the writing in this book was good. A Beautiful Purpose is a straight-forward romance novel with just th [...]

      I LOVED Blake. He was the perfect man! I loved how he chased Audrey and never gave up, even when she was being difficult.Audrey on the other hand annoyed me a little. I guess I just don't like storylines where the heroine keeps on pushing the hero away. Especially when the hero is nothing but a sweetheart to the heroine. There are so many asshole heros out there that don't deserve the heroine but mostly the nice guys get pushed away.Other than that, it was a sweet story and a good end to the ser [...]

      I received this for an honest review. Book by book I am falling in love with Alicia Rae. This was such a good book and such a wonderful end to this series. Blake Johnson is leaving the military and the only life he has ever known. Then he meets Aubrey Hampton and is brought to his knees. I have to say that this book brought me to my knees absolutely a beautiful and wonderful book. This book for me felt like an emotional roller coaster and one I wasn't sure I wanted to get off. This book absolute [...]

      Alicia Rae writes sweet, sexy, and wonderful love stories in the Beautiful series and A Beautiful Purpose is no exception. This story is a tale of hope and love, a love that must overcome past heartache and misconceptions to find its footing and bloom into something powerful and lasting. A Beautiful Purpose is the story of how a woman who doesn’t not believe in true love falls for a man determined to show her that it exists, that it is real and powerful. Blake and Audrey meet at the party cele [...]

      Wow what a series end! This was great! Alicia Rae has captured me thru all of her books of this series. From Love, Romance, and suspense. It started with Lily and Kyle and their love for one another and getting thru pasts. Lily with the death of her family and Kyles past from when he was the service. From here their families have branched together with friends and relatives. Lily has cousins that are just as passionate as she is. All three of her cousins have found romance connected to her in so [...]

      From start to finish Ms. Rae's Beautiful series has been an emotional rollercoaster ride for a small group of people who have found a sense of family amongst themselves. Each of the previous couples has struggled to find their HEA and subtly push their last single friends together in this story of forgiveness and not letting the past define you.Audrey grew up in a house full of hate, indifference, and feelings of unworthiness. From a verbally demanding father to a mother who was emotionally and [...]

      Audrey hasn't had an easy life, emotionally. She has been taught that love is for fools – that it doesn’t really exist – so she refuses to fall for anyone. From a young age, she decided she would just live her life alone and learn to be content, but she never expected Blake to walk into her life and make her question her decision. We get a glimpse into Audrey's home life, and I wanted to slap her father and mother silly because of the way they treated her and made her feel. Audrey doesn't [...]

      Review originally posted at Ramblings From This ChickA Beautiful Purpose is the sixth book in Alicia Rae's Beautiful Series, but can easily be read as a standalone. I would recommend starting at the beginning though as the books are fantastic and you don't want to miss a single thing about these characters! I have loved these books since the start, and the characters in this series are some of my all time favorites. I was really intrigued by this book because up until this point, Blake has only [...]

      A Beautiful Purpose by Alicia Rae is a 2014 publication. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.This is an emotional contemporary romance that will pull at the old heartstrings a little. Audrey is a young lady raised by a bitter, angry, and resentful mother and a father who does nothing but bark orders and give off his own brand of hateful vibes toward his wife and daughter. When Audrey's mother is diagnosed with terminal cancer, Audrey does her duty and comes home t [...]

      A Beautiful Purpose is the final book in Alicia Rae's Beautiful Series but it can be read as a standalone contemporary romance. If you're familiar with the series then you'll probably remember Audrey and Blake from the brief appearances/mentions of them in previous books. The book is told in dual POV featuring both quiet, sweet and under appreciated Audrey Hampton and soldier Blake, who is the eldest Johnson brother. Audrey hasn't experienced many happy relationships and doesn't believe that lov [...]

      I fell in love with The Beautiful series in Book one Beautiful Chances. It was a book that you sighed when you finished. It gave you a feel good factor when you read it, a book that stays with you long after you've read it. it a book that you could read again and again and each time feeling like its the first time you have read it. The whole Beautiful Series is the same, and this one A Beautiful Purpose is no different. This is the last one in the series. Each book can be read as a standalone or [...]

      This is my second book I've read from Ms. Alicia Rae and it is as every bit as good as the first one I've read. I feel like it's better than the previous because I felt like the characters developed a more. At least they were able to face and overcome their obstacles. I always enjoy the process and journey a character goes through in their stories. Ms. Rae does an excellent job at creating flawed characters who have problems and attempt to improve themselves.I was unsure about how I felt about A [...]

      This is one of those books where things are so sweet, but also a bit frustrating. But you'll find that the sweet outweighs the rest, and the result is a wonderful contemporary romance with a male lead that will steal your heart.Blake is pretty much the definition of perfect. In addition to the hot and sexy factor, he's intelligent, loyal, knows exactly what to say-and not just to Audreyd just everything about him will make you swoon. Audrey is a sweet girl with plenty of love to give-if she wasn [...]

      READ THIS BOOK! YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY!Audrey Hampton lived with knowing her father never had ANY time for her or her mother. He was career military until an accident caused him to retire early. Her mother always blamed Audrey for ruining her life. She always told her that all men will do is break your heart. Audrey no longer believed in love because there was no love for her, no happily ever after either. Can Audrey get beyond a lifetime of her mother's tough love to allow herself to love and be [...]

      It was bittersweet for this series to end. However it certainly ended with a bang! It was amazing to see Blake and the love he shared for everyone around him. Audrey's life made me feel heartbroken. Nobody should have to deal with what she did. This story showed that even broken relationships can heal with the right amount of effort and time. The way Blake claimed Audrey was adorable. He understood her so well and let her take her time to open up to him and he gave her so much love.She could not [...]

      Favorite Quotes:“'Nothing compares to this Audrey,' I said, unable to hold back. ‘Nothing has ever made me feel the way I do when I’m with you. You’re all I see.’”“You have made me smile, love, and even dream a life full of love. It is beyond anything I could have ever imagined for myself. You are my one and only for eternity.”“'Love doesn’t need a calendar or a clock, Audrey,’ Lily chimed in. ‘It just needs two people to take a leap of faith and follow their hearts.’ [...]

      I truly love this series. I have fell in love with the characters of these family and friends. I was so excited when I found out Blake was getting his story. He has been the mysterious brother/cousin who has been away. I couldn't wait to learn more about him. I was not disappointed. Rae has a way with words to say the least. Her writing is beautiful and flows nicely. I loved the epilogue and the peek into the future. I can't wait for the new series that Rae will be releasing. It is one of my fav [...]
