Losing has never been easy for a Maddox, but death always wins.

Eleven years to the day after eloping in Vegas with Abby, Special Agent Travis Maddox delivers his own brand of vigilante justice to mob boss Benny Carlisi. Vegas's oldest and most violent crime family is now preparing for vengeance, and the entire Maddox family is a target.

The secret Thomas and Travis have kept for a decade will be revealed to the rest of the family, and for the first time the Maddoxes will be at odds. While none of them are strangers to loss, the family has grown, and the risk is higher than ever. With brothers against brothers and wives taking sides, each member will make a choice-let the fear tear them apart, or make them stronger.

No! No! No! Jamie, seriously? Why? It is a beautiful and heart breaking story. I love how it includes all the boys, their wives and families. I also love what she does to intertwine timelines. I appreciate how their futures have not all been picture perfect. Part of the ending, and you know which part, seemed truly unnecessary and then left unresolved. I'm putting that part out of my head and pretending it didn't happen.

A real page turner and everything I'd expect from a Maddox book. I think put of all the heartache in all the books this was the hardest to read. From the deception and lying and some funny banter here and there, to true heartbreak and tears. Make sure I have kleenex near by while reading.

Love the boys, love the books, hate Cami. I have never liked Cami and really don't now. I feel bad for Trent. What man wants to live in the shadow of his wife's former flame, especially if its his own brother. She makes everyone uncomfortable and I cheered when Abby let her have it. I wish Liis would punch her out. I hear there may be another book for Trent and I pray the POV swtches back and forth because if its only from Cami I won't read it. It called the Maddox brothers series so we should hear from them in all the books. That is one thing that bothers me, only hearing the girls side. I want more from the men. Please have Trent dump Cami and find a girl that loves only him. I will miss Jim, he was a sweetie. Still don't understand why Olive had to die. Thank you Jamie for a great series and sexy men.
