Publisher's Summary

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' 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 and defiant yet somehow softens Thomas' rough edges, making her the perfect agent to accompany him to the ceremony. Posing as a couple, they must travel to Travis and 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.
In the second installment of the Maddox Brothers books, experience firsthand the mysterious world of the elusive Thomas Maddox and how good love can be when you're not the first but the last.

Loving this Series!

I really love these books! Thomas & Liis are an awesome tough couple. The characters were great and the story line too. I would have liked a little more steam but it didn't change my rating. I liked how that stories overlap and we get little visits from the brothers! The narration was really good too!

good but had some issues

I was super hooked on the story so obviously I enjoyed it, but there were just so many parts of it that were repetitive with the struggle between Thomas and Leese. and I lost track of Thomas's emotional motivation for wanting to get together with her. And one breath he said he still loves his ex and then the next he's scene he loves leese more than anyone. It was confusing and made me feel really sad for Leese. I think we all deserve to have a great love and not someone still hung up on their EX. I also missed the passion. there weren't very many scenes where Thomas and Leese werent fighting. And i would have just loved for them to have a small honeymoon period where they just let go and enjoyed each other. just in general the characters didn't seem very well developed. But, with all that said, I was still hooked. And there were certainly hot moments and moments where they said beautiful things to each other. so still totally worth the credit.

Another great story from Jamie McGuire

I fell in love with both characters in this book, pleasure to listen to, some really funny laugh out loud moments from some of the one liners. Can not wait to read the rest. Enjoy
