Mini Review Beautiful Redemption by Jamie McGuire

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 Review & Thoughts

The style of this book was very different from the previous bad boy brother's series. Of course Beautiful Disaster being one of my favorite reads sets the expectations of any other book to follow be greater - unfortunately no other brother has done it for me like Travis!

Besides that, Beautiful Redemption has its own story. Liis is a feisty mixture of a chic! She started off with fire and an attitude that sizzled down with her never ending indecisive 'to love or not to love'.

I found both leading character's behavior to be whinny and immature at times - especially with their said profile as a character. The bickering went on for sometime that I eventually said get on with it already. I was expecting a bit more in this book. None the less, I'm entranced into knowing more of each of the brothers!

As mentioned not only is the style of characters different but the hot scenes in this book kicked up ten notches from the previous in the series. I could only imagine what the Author has for in the next in book three!

  1. I have this on my list to get to this summer. I like these books but I don't think they can ever live up to Travis !

  2. I'm glad I'm not the only one that holds Travis on top ;)
