Trenton Maddox was the king of Eastern State University, dating co-eds before he even graduated high school. His friends wanted to be him, and women wanted to tame him, but after a tragic accident turned his world upside down, Trenton leaves campus to come to grips with the crushing guilt. Eighteen months later, Trenton is living at home with his widower father, and works full-time at a local tattoo parlor to help with the bills. Just when he thinks his life is returning to normal, he notices Cami sitting alone at a table at The Red.
I'm wondering if Jamie McGuire is a one hit wonder. Despite the pretty good narration, this was a DNF for me. The main characters had no chemistry a..Show More »nd I was bored to death. I rolled my eyes a lot, especially at the whiny Cami. « Show Less
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.
The female character had zero depth. The FBI angle was preposterous even from my uneducated view.
Falyn Fairchild can walk away from anything. Already leaving behind 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.
Good story with likeable characters. A little predictable. Almost impossible to match the perfection of Beautiful Disaster.
