Title: Beautiful Redemption
Series: The Maddox Brothers #2
Author: Jamie McGuire

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.

Special Agent in Charge Thomas Maddox is arrogant, unforgiving, and ruthless. He is tasked with putting away some of the world’s toughest criminals, and he is one of the best the Bureau has to offer. Though, as many lives as he’s saved, there is one that is beyond his reach. Younger brother Travis is faced with prison time for his involvement in a basement fire that killed dozens of college students, and the media want a conviction. Travis’s only savior is his unusual tie to the mob. In a deal that will spare his brother, Thomas has agreed to recruit Travis into the FBI.

Liis is stubborn, defiant, and yet somehow softens Thomas’s rough edges, making her the perfect agent to accompany him to the ceremony. Posing as a couple, they must travel to Travis & Abby’s beach vow renewal and give him the news, but when the pretending ends, she finds herself wondering if they were pretending at all.

Beautiful Redemption starts off with Liis, an FBI agent, getting transferred to a San Diego. She's there for a lot of reasons many of them personal, and some because of the job. But on her first night there, she ends up meeting a stranger to have one night with. The problem with that comes a little later, after meeting her new boss. Liis is unsure how to go about things now, and Thomas Maddox is different then most men she's been with or around. These two both have issues, but if they don't get their act together, it may be more then just their hearts on the line... 

This book was better then the first one in this series. I actually really really enjoyed this one. The only issue I had was some of the stuff that happened towards the end. I could totally understand some of Liis issues with Thomas, but I didn't really get why she kept being so back and forth. It drove me nuts. 
Other then that though, it was nice to have a female FBI agent, and more then just normal drama. I really did enjoy this one.
