Swoon Thursday #173 ~ Something Beautiful (Beautiful #3) by Jamie McGuire

Swoon Thursday was first bought to us by YA Bound.
Since they are no longer with us, Naomi @ Naomi's Reading Palace has kindly created a central meet up point for those of us who wish to continue to share our swoons.
So ladies (and any gents who feel so inclined) please leave a comment below, and then head on over there to link up and spread the love.

My Swoon for this week comes from:

Something Beautiful
(Beautiful #3)
Jamie McGuire

First - The Blurb:

America Mason, a sassy undergrad at Eastern State University, is in love with a Maddox--Shepley Maddox. Unlike his cousins, Shepley is more lover than fighter, but a road trip to her parents' home in Wichita, Kansas could mean the next step, or the end of everything.

Second - The Swoon:

For people who had struggled for every step forward, we didn’t have one regret, and we wouldn’t change a thing. Every wrong turn had led us to this moment, proving that every choice we’d made was right. We had cried and hurt and bled our way to happiness, the kind that couldn’t be stopped by fire or wind. However it had happened and whatever it was, we were something beautiful.

I first met America and Shepley in Beautiful Disaster - Abby and Travis's story. As secondary characters, their relationship was touched on but not given in too much detail.

Something Beautiful is a short and sweet read which tells us the complete story of how America and Shepley met. How their relationship developed. And eventually, how after a few bumps in the road, they finally find the happiness they deserve.

My rating: 4 out of 5
