Title: Beautiful Redemption
   Author: Jamie McGuire
   Format: Paperback
   Release Date: January 27th, 2015

     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 Stance:

     Beautiful Redemption. I have this book pre-ordered straight from the one and only Jamie McGuire. While I could have gone to a local bookstore or whatever, I would rather support the author wholeheartedly than a bookstore. I find that letting them know how much I appreciate the novels, and their work, maybe they will keep going and writing. It's no question how I feel about the Beautiful series, and if not all of her novels. I need to catch up and maybe read the rest of her novels and do a McGuire e-marathon.

     So I was a huge fan of Beautiful Redemption and when that novel ended I instantly knew who the next one would be. I have to say that Thomas isn't one I know much about, other than how him and Travis sort of fit in. There wasn't much about Thomas in the novels other than the first one with Abby, so I'm curious to see how he differs from Trenton and Travis.

     Going into this synopsis, I see the one thing that I always questioned. How did Travis managed to get out of the whole basement fire. Thomas tends to explain that and maybe a bit more. I love how McGuire tends to bring all the stories together and around the same timeline or something that brings all the novels together. However in Thomas's case, the case of a broken heart and a new love is just new grounds for McGuire (in terms of the novels I have read from her), and I am looking forward to it.
