Beautiful Sacrifice by Jamie McGuire
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
As per usual, Jamie McGuire delivers with Beautiful Sacrifice. I first fell in love with the Maddox brothers in Beautiful Disaster where we got to meet Travis and Abby. Since then, I have been a huge fan.
We are introduced to Falyn Fairchild, a waitress at the Bucksaw Cafe, who is saving all her money for a special trip to Eakins. A place where she needs to go to find the forgiveness she so desperately craves.
Taylor Maddox, a member of the hotshot crew, enters the Bucksaw one afternoon for a meal, and happens to be seated in Falyn's section. He's gorgeous, charming and persistent. She knows she should stay away; hotshot's are known for loving and leaving, but he slowly breaks down her walls.
I love that all of the Maddox brothers like a challenge. They are not one to give up on what they want, and will fight for it. As the story slowly unravels, we get to see more of what happened in Falyn's past, and why she responds the way she does to him. I can completely understand her thinking, though I tend to agree with Kirby (another waitress at the Cafe, and her friend) later in the story. I was surprised by the ending too, and absolutely loved it! It was the perfect way to end it :)
I can't wait to sink my teeth into Beautiful Burn next!
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.
