Publisher's Summary

Fresh out of college, Ellison Edson has fallen through the cracks of rock bottom. While staying in her family's vacation home in Colorado, her behavior has finally gained the attention of her parents - but not in the way she hoped. Cut off from the millions she's always taken for granted and left alone to fend for herself, Ellie spirals further out of control, making a mistake she can't take back.

Like his twin brother, Taylor, Tyler Maddox is a member of the Alpine Hotshots, fighting wildland fires on the front line. As arrogant as he is charming, Tyler's nomadic lifestyle makes it easy to contain his relationships to one night. When he meets Ellie at a local party during the off-season, her extreme personality and dismissive attitude fascinate him at first, but as his feelings deepen, Tyler realizes that the crippling inner demons of the woman he loves might be the strongest enemy any Maddox has ever faced.

Loved it all!

Just as incredible as her other novels! Couldn't stop listening. Loved the depth of the characters and the storyline. Narration was great. Some of the pronunciations of the "s" sounds were very loud and sharp. Couldn't listen with headphones...first time I've ever noticed this being a problem but the audiobook is still worth every penny!

Beautiful story and fantastic audio

Ms. McGuire knocked it out of the park with this one. Loved the back and forth between Ellie and Tyler. The way she portrayed Ellie's character and the things she went through in her downward spiral to hit rock bottom was very realistic. I enjoyed every up and down, every laughable moment - and there were a LOT - and the seriousness tone taken just at the right moment. This book was everything I expected and more.
I also listened to the audio book version. The chosen Narrator was the perfect choice. if you are new to audio books or a a frequent listener, you will absolutely, thoroughly delight in listening to this one.

Saved the best for last!

Jamie gets real and deep with this one. She takes it to a whole new level with Beautiful Burn! I dare say that Ellie and Tyler might be my favorite couple in all of the Maddox Brothers series.

Ellison is one bad ass chick. She is so real and very enjoyable to read. Tyler is true to the Maddox characteristics. He is sexy, charming, goes for the girl who is not easy, and loves and fights fiercely no matter what is thrown his way.

The story was absolutely enthralling. I didn't want it to end. There were so many scenes and events that I just loved. Jamie is a master at story line placement and timelines. She always surprises you in the most delicious way.

This may have been the last book in the Maddox Brothers series but it was the most enjoyable. I cannot believe I am saying this because I have loved all of the books. However there was SO much about this book that rounded out the Beautiful series and brought it all full circle to me. I loved every minute, and every word on the pages.

Last book I’ll read of this author

This book was my filler book before my next credit. However, I’m needing to find another filler. This is just painful. I want to strangle the heroine if you can call her that. She’s a spoiled brat and just whines about EVERYTHING!!!! I want to scream at her to get over herself. I won’t be finishing this book

Love the Maddox Boys!

I'm so sad this was the last of the Maddox boys...I have loved every story! I love to see them intertwine and hearing the other viewpoints to events that happened in each book. This one is definitely one of my favorites - I'd probably rank it right after Travis' story. These stories are so well written with excellent character and story development. And this narrator was Excellent!! Was able to differentiate each character and give them all their own voice. Loved this series!! Sorry I'm at the end of them!

it is not my favorite.

Jamie seems more confident to describe sex scenes; however, this is the darkest story of all. Ali is too depressed and depressing.

Not my fave

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would recommend this book b/c its part of a really good seriers, but I was not a fan of the story line or the person who read the book.. UGH

If you’ve listened to books by Jamie McGuire before, how does this one compare?

I have listened to a LOT of Jamie's book and I really liked them, but this one.. UGH it was tough to get through..

How did the narrator detract from the book?

It was the narrator I didn't like...

What would have made this romance irresistible?

I am not sure what would have made this romance irresistible, but I do know that I wasn't a fan of the hard core almost butch-ish lead character and the reader sounded drunk or on drugs and that's not how I pitched or thought one of the Maddox boys would be with is all.

Unknowingly broken to Desolated to self savior

This story is a journey of intimidation,resolve and a lesson that standing aside a tormented sole resolute in see through to there self repair is sometimes the only thing a loved one can do.
Long scenes in parts an overall, clear story of self savior and love.
Before you love someone else you must be able to live within yourself.....
