Something beautiful & amazing!

I love this book! I started reading it as soon as it was available & couldn't put it down until I finished it! I love that not only did we get to fall more in love with Shepley & America, but it also filled in more of Travis & Abby's story. I love this book I just wish it would've been longer! And I want more books, there is still story to be told!!!

"America" the Beautiful through Shepley Maddox's eyes

Just read this wonderful novella, breaking my binge reading record. Having fallen in love multiple times with men with the last name Maddox, I wasn't surprised that favorite Maddox Cousin Shepley could steal my heart as well. I loved seeing how America and Shepley met and fell in love. Loved being given a deeper look into the personalities of both these characters. Shepley might not be a typical Maddox with the swagger and outward toughness, but deep down he is made of the same strong sense of honor, loyalty and love of family that makes Maddox men unforgettable. My only complaint, ymaking me hold off a 5 star review, was that it wasn't long enough!

So many emotions!

I think every Beautiful Disaster lover has been waiting for more of Shepley and America's story, and we finally have it! I can't even describe how many feels I have for this novella, it was such an emotional read for me. Author Jamie McGuire is a genius at character development and I could relate to America in so many ways. She's sassy, forward, and strong. There is no doubt that Shepley is a swoon-worthy, and I fell for him just as hard as I did the others. It's amazing that with each story we get another glimpse into the lives of the Maddox's and fall even more in love with each of them. I'm a lover of ALL things Maddox, so I highly recommend reading his novella after all of the others!
