Something Beautiful by Jamie McGuire | Book Review

Something Beautiful by Jamie McGuire

Reading Group:  Anyone who has read all of the other Beautiful and Maddox Brothers series.

Personal Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars

Given Summary: 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.

Cover: The cover shows what looks to be a windshield, cracked and being rained on.  This could resemble the storm they drove through in Kansas.  It could also symbolize their relationship.  It wasn't the best at times.  They didn't know where they stood with each other or what the future looked like, but they weren't shattered.  They were just cracked.  And cracks can be fixed.  It costs money to get a windshield fixed, but it gets fixed.  It costs time and energy to fix a relationship, but if you want it bad enough you will fix it.

My Review: I was expecting this story to be about how Shepley and America met.  I figured the road trip they went on was the one they were on when the fire took place.  I did not expect this novella to jump around and fast forward in time as much as it did, but I loved it!  I loved the little stories that led up to the trip to Wichita.  I loved that Shepley and America's relationship wasn't always perfect, but they didn't have giant fights and break up.  It felt very real.  The Maddox boys are a force to be reckon with and even though Shepley is as much of a physical fighter he will do whatever it takes to keep America and form a life with her.  The two of them together are such a power couple and the way they looked for each other proved that no matter what, they are forever.  Both of them were told to stay back in the hospital and wait in a safe place, but neither could.  Neither could just sit there and wait around they had to be moving had to be searching for each other.  This novella was short, sweet, and simply beautiful.
