Review: Beautiful Redemption by Jamie McGuire

Credit: Goodreads
4 Stars

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.

My Thoughts; Let me begin by saying how happy I am that this book (unlike the others) was not set in the exact same time and place as Beautiful Disaster/Walking Disaster/Beautiful Oblivion. I mean you can only tell the same story so many time before people lose interest. That doesn't mean that I didn't love the aforementioned books, but I was ready for a change of scenery. Cue Thomas Maddox *eyebrow wiggle*.

In true Maddox fashion he came along and stole my heart. I love him more than Trent, but not even close to as much as Travis. I do miss the 'stay up all night and devour the story' feeling I got when I first read Beautiful Disaster, but I am completely infatuated with the other Maddox boys. I look forward to reading Book 3, Beautiful Sacrifice, said to be about Taylor Maddox. There is not a synopsis at this time.
