Beautiful Redemption by Jamie McGuire

I realized Beautiful Redemption was released yesterday and I had to read it. I started this last night around 11:30 and finally had to stop reading around 3:30 this morning.  Was it because the story was just that addicting? I don’t know anymore. I think it has more to do with my need to know how it will end. There was just so much drama going back and forth, it was like a tennis match. These people work at the FBI! It felt like they were at TMZ. I didn’t get the feeling that either them really loved it other. I know they were supposed to but the emotions were just not there for me. I finally finished it this morning. The story came to an end too quick and what really happened to them?

And who really is ok with the person they love being in love with two people, one of whom will be around them all the time. Do you really need that constant reminder? Maybe next time Jamie McGuire. I think I am done with the Maddox brothers for a little bit. I wasn’t a huge fan of Walking Disaster, to me it was just that. I liked Beautiful Oblivion.

On a side note…Why do authors feel the need to have all the girls in their books pretend to be runners or fitness freaks? There was one gym visit in the whole book. Keep it consistent or just drop it. She went to the gym once. Once, and then not again for the rest of the book. I don’t get why it had to be mentioned in the first place.


If a Maddox boy falls in love, he loves forever. But, what if he didn’t love you, first?

No-nonsense Liis Lindy is an agent of the FBI. Deciding she is married only to her job, she breaks off her engagement and transfers from Chicago to the field office in San Diego. She loves her desk. She is committed to her laptop. She dreams of promotions and shaking hands with the director after cracking an impossible case.

Special Agent in Charge Thomas Maddox is arrogant, unforgiving, and ruthless. He is tasked with putting away some of the world’s toughest criminals, and he is one of the best the Bureau has to offer. Though, as many lives as he’s saved, there is one that is beyond his reach. Younger brother Travis is faced with prison time for his involvement in a basement fire that killed dozens of college students, and the media want a conviction. Travis’s only savior is his unusual tie to the mob. In a deal that will spare his brother, Thomas has agreed to recruit Travis into the FBI.

Liis is stubborn, defiant, and yet somehow softens Thomas’s rough edges, making her the perfect agent to accompany him to the ceremony. Posing as a couple, they must travel to Travis & Abby’s beach vow renewal and give him the news, but when the pretending ends, she finds herself wondering if they were pretending at all.

In the second installment of the Maddox Brothers books, experience firsthand the mysterious world of the elusive Thomas Maddox, and how good love can be when you’re not the first, but the last.
