Beautiful Sacrifice (Maddox Brothers #3) by Jamie McGuire

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.


Whew! This installment of The Maddox Brothers brings new meaning to the classic hit, "Love is a Battlefield." The odds seemed to be stacked against Falyn and Taylor the entire time. There was no reprieve and it seemed like every time they took one step forward, they got knocked back three. They battled their own issues, outside forces, and misunderstandings at every turn. It certainly made for an emotional journey and I found myself riveted to their story and turning the pages as fast as I could to find out what happened next. 

I admire Falyn and Taylor's willingness and ability to fight for each other and their love in the end. To be honest, I wasn't sure how this one was going to work out and there were plenty of twists in the plot that kept the story interesting and from becoming predictable. This is certainly no "easy" love story, but I think that's what makes Falyn and Taylor such a special couple. You will need to hang on tight through this one, but if you are willing to battle it out with this couple, I know that you will love where they end up. I would definitely recommend reading the other books in the series, as there is a lot of character/plot crossover, but this installment stands out as the best in the series so far.
