Beautiful Sacrifice

The Maddox Brothers #3

Jamie McGuire


New Adult, Contemporary Romance

Library Book




Falyn Fairchild can walk away from anything. Having already left her car, her education, and even her parents, the daughter of the next governor of Colorado is back in her hometown, broke and waiting tables for the Bucksaw Café. After every shift, Falyn adds to her shoebox of cash, hoping to one day save enough to buy her a plane ticket to the only place she can find forgiveness: Eakins, Illinois.

The moment Taylor Maddox is seated in Falyn’s section at the Bucksaw, she knows he’s trouble. Taylor is charming, breaks promises, and gorgeous even when covered in filth—making him everything Falyn believes a hotshot firefighter to be. Falyn isn’t interested in becoming another statistic, and for a Maddox boy, a disinterested girl is the ultimate challenge.

Once Falyn learns where Taylor calls home, everything changes. In the end, Maddox persistence is met with Falyn’s talent for leaving, and for the first time, Taylor may be the one to get burned.

I loved this book even more than I did Beautiful Disaster. I loved this book so much on so many different levels. I like that it combined everyone’s stories in on way or another. I love that it emotionally destroyed me. Absolutely destroyed me. I couldn’t put this book down. I went without much needed sleep to finish this book. I don’t regret it for an instant. With this story, my mind is all over the place. I cannot seem to keep my thoughts coherent and consistent.

I did find the ending a little predictable though. I can’t say too much without giving it away but I guessed pretty much exactly how it would end. In saying that, obviously it doesn’t mar my thoughts too much because I still give the book five stars.

I can see why Jamie McGuire is so popular. Her writing draws you in and you can barely get out. The series is addictive and yes the books do run sort of the same but it is well worth it.

My recommendation: If you need to cry, this is the book for you.
