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. Is committed to her laptop and dreams of promotions. As well as 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 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, 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.
Jamie McGuire is certainly spoiling us with these Maddox boys. First we had the pleasure of meeting eating Travis, then along came Trenton and now there’s Thomas.
It could just be me, but with every book I find myself in love with a different brother. Beautiful Redemption introduces us to the eldest Maddox brother, Agent Thomas. Married to his career and focused on climbing the career ladder, Thomas is hiding not just a broken heart but a few other secrets too. Then he meets Liss Lindy and life starts to get a whole load more complicated… Thomas Maddox is incredible, a true Maddox boy, when he falls he falls hard. But as the eldest, Thomas seems to feel that it’s his responsibility to look after his brothers a task that brings him emotions he shouldn’t have to face. The way in which Thomas thinks about his mother, shows that he was greatly effected by her and the build up to her death.
What I loved thst this book was full of Maddox men, which was a dream come true for me!
But enough about the men (I can’t believe I just said)…. Liss our narrator for the story, is a wonderful feisty character. I loved her ability to handle herself in any situation thrown her way. And as much as I hate to admit it, I really loved discovering the chemistry that she and Thomas had. Beautiful Redemption is a gripping tale of passion and romance, a story that burns with intensity and desire….
