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.
When I finished reading Beautiful Oblivion and learned who TJ was, I knew I needed to get my hands on this book. I am glad that it did as it didn’t disappoint me.
This is the story of Thomas Maddox and Liis Lindy. Thomas and Liis are both FBI agents working a case involving a crime family in Vegas. Thomas younger brother Travis has been involved with this crime family. Travis got in trouble after a fire and Thomas in order to prevent him going to jail intervenes and ask Travis to work undercover for the FBI. In order to recruit Travis, Thomas needs Liis to come with him to a wedding.
Liis and Thomas has insane chemistry. They both are attracted to one another. But Thomas brings baggage to the relationship stemming from Beautiful Oblivion. There was angst in the story.
Both Thomas and Liis overcome obstacles in order to be together. They do have a happy ending.
This book was my favorite from the Maddox Series/Beautiful Disaster series. I love that it was action packed. I loved Thomas as a character. That he wasn’t the typical bad boy.
I give this book 5 stars.
