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:

Beautiful Sacrifice
(The Maddox Brothers #3)
Jamie McGuire 

First - The Blurb:

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.

Second - The Swoon:

"Everything that’s happened since we met has led to this moment. There is only one woman I've loved before you, and there will never be another after you."

There is no doubting that Jamie knows exactly how to write a love story which captures your attention and holds it from the first page to the very last.

Beautiful Sacrifice is Falyn and Taylor's story, and like the books that came before, it is filled with just the right amount of angst, emotion and romance.

My rating: 5 out of 5

The Maddox brothers
Beautiful Disaster: Travis & Abby
Beautiful Oblivion: Trenton & Cami
Beautiful Redemption: Thomas & Liis
Beautiful Sacrifice: Taylor & Falyn
Beautiful Burn: Tyler & Ellie
