Beautiful Burn by Jamie McGuire Review & Release
Fresh out of college, Ellison Edson has fallen through the cracks of rock bottom. While staying in her family’s vacation home in Colorado, her behavior has finally gained the attention of her parents—but not in the way she hoped. Cut off from the millions she’s always taken for granted, and left alone to fend for herself, Ellie spirals further out of control, making a mistake she can’t take back.
Like his twin brother Taylor, Tyler Maddox is a member of the Alpine Hotshots, fighting wildland fires on the frontline. As arrogant as he is charming, Tyler’s nomadic lifestyle makes it easy to contain his relationships to one night. When he meets Ellie at a local party during off-season, her extreme personality and dismissive attitude fascinates him at first, but as his feelings deepen, Tyler realizes that the crippling inner demons of the woman he loves might be the strongest enemy any Maddox has ever faced.

Jamie gets real and deep with this one. She takes it to a whole new level with Beautiful Burn! I dare say that Ellie and Tyler might be my favorite couple in all of the Maddox Brothers series.
Ellison is one bad ass chick. She is so real and very enjoyable to read. Tyler is true to the Maddox characteristics. He is sexy, charming, goes for the girl who is not easy, and loves and fights fiercely no matter what is thrown his way.
The story was absolutely enthralling. I didn't want it to end. There were so many scenes and events that I just loved. Jamie is a master at story line placement and timelines. She always surprises you in the most delicious way.
This may have been the last book in the Maddox Brothers series but it was the most enjoyable. I cannot believe I am saying this because I have loved all of the books. However there was SO much about this book that rounded out the Beautiful series and brought it all full circle to me. I loved every minute, and every word on the pages.
