Ok, so how can I put this nicely? When I first met Thomas Maddox in Beautiful Oblivion as TJ I kind of .... well, I hated him. That wasn't nice, was it? Oops. I am hearing a lot of gasps around the world. Now before you send a lynch mob...just wait a minute. I said when I FIRST met him. That means he could have redeemed himself. Hence, the title Beautiful Redemption. Jamie McGuire is good at that. If you have read any of her stuff you know she can drive us absolutely crazy and then BAM! We are in love. Hard love. I mean look at Travis. He was a huge manwhore and we loved him. So Thomas, yeah, he had a chance.
Beautiful Redemption was wonderful! I was a little nervous going in..because of the before mentioned hate. But I mean he's a freaking Maddox brother. I had to try. And whew boy! Was I glad I tried. When he met Liis in the bar and took her home that first night. I think MY panties melted. And in true Maddox fashion he was an ass. But when he fell, he fell hard. And as always it was the girl who was fighting it. What is up with all these stupid girls?! I mean I want to scream at them and be like HELLO!!! YOU HAVE A FREAKIN MADDOX BROTHER AFTER YOU FALL TO YOUR KNEES NOW!
I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how Jamie writes scenes into the book that gives us glimpses into the past. We can be reading a "new" book yet we still see something that happens back in Beautiful Disaster. I know these are just characters but I swear by the time this series is done I'm going to know them better than I do my own family. It is AWESOME.
So I could keep typing away because I have a serious love for all things Jamie McGuire and all things Maddox brothers ... but I'll stop before a restraining order is issued. ;) Go buy this book now! NOW!!
