BT Maddox Banner

Is he strong enough to show her—to prove love is worth the risk for both of them?

BAM - Maddox - ebook

Brought up in chaos and fear, Maddox requires order and control to cope with life.

He has his career and two closest friends. That is all he needs.

Until Dee enters his life.

She brings forth feelings he has denied himself his entire life—and threatens his control.

He wants to hold.




Damaged by her past, Dee cannot admit her feelings for him, fighting him at every turn.

Is he strong enough to show her—to prove love is worth the risk for both of them?

Oh, this was a bittersweet goodbye to my favourites – THE BAM BOYS!  

I have to be honest; I kept putting off reading Maddox; mostly cause I did not really want to say goodbye to Bentley, Aiden and Maddox. It was their friendship; a friendship that is as solid as their three differing personalities & yet they make it work. They work not only as business partners but also as friends and as family!  

The status quo changes when Bentley rams into Cami in the first book (Read My Review) and it brings the women who will changed Aiden (Read My Review) and Maddox’s life.  

Maddox Riley had a difficult childhood; but that only made him all the more determined to be successful just not emotional. This silver fox now has the life he has always dreamt of – a successful life with the friends who became his family. And now has Deidre aka Dee in his life with a fulfilling sexual relationship [who knew this staid man was such a fox in bed! 😉] 

Deidre, big sister of Cami has had to grow up a lot before than should have warranted – she has been her sister’s rock and mother all her life; but now is struggling for Cami is married to man who adores her; a concept that is actually quite foreign to the woman who steers away any emotional entanglements.  

Dee and Maddox fall right into a sexual relationship – that has been defined quite clearly. But the more they fall deeper into a committed relationship; Maddox was quite strong enough to understand that he has fallen for the no – nonsense woman that Dee actually is!  

But the past rears it’s head when a woman from Maddox’s past comes knocking him off his tush! It’s when he understands the true depth of the friendship that he has with Bentley and Aiden – which honestly was the best part about this book!  

The BAM Boys friendship is exactly what I adored in the trilogy from the start  and it reaches its pinnacle in this conclusion – and it was beautiful; and absolutely heart – warming! Its strong, loyal and faith of these BAM Boys have in each other that made it the foundation of this trilogy!! 

There is also a cameo by one of the previous characters of Melanie Moreland’s – The Contract, I believe (I still need to read that beauty!) and this cameo just made sure that it would be on my immediate TBR!  

I adored the Vested Interests trilogy; and that epilogue was exactly the kind of send – off I wanted – and now, I can’t wait for Reid’s book!

Aiden huffed. “Way to go. I’m still hungry.”

“You’re always fucking hungry,” Bentley growled.

“Bottomless pit,” I added, looking at the dishes. There were a lot of them.

“I had nothing to do with the situation, and I still got in trouble. Thanks, Maddox,” Bentley snapped.

“Happy to have included you in the debacle.”

“Shut up, both of you.” Aiden shook his head, reaching for the platter of pancakes. “I’m eating first, then cleaning.”

I looked at my half-eaten plate. “Good idea. Maybe we should cover the girls’ plates, and they can warm them or something.”

Aiden looked over his shoulder. “Do you think they’re fighting?”

“Talking,” Bentley said. “They talk.” He sighed. “They talk a lot.”

“I hope Cami is okay,” Aiden said with a groan. “If I have to beat you for this, Mad Dog, I will—but I’ll try to be gentle.”

“Whatever,” I snorted. “I can take you, big man.”

“You think so? I could snap you like a twig.”

“I’ll throw a couple of lemon Danish at you and run. You’ll be so busy trying to catch them, I’ll be fine.”

He frowned and started to laugh. “That would work.”

We all chuckled. Aiden started eating, and with a shrug, I joined him. The food was too good to waste. When we were done, I laid down my fork.

“I didn’t mean to start anything. I just wanted it out there before Dee changed her mind.”

“What do you mean?”

I wiped my mouth. “Let’s say Dee isn’t as far into this relationship as I am and leave it at that. I’m trying to be patient.” I slouched in my chair. “I need you two to be supportive.”

Bentley rested his elbows on the table, studying me. “Are you serious about this relationship?”

“As a heart attack.”

“And Dee is…”

“Skittish, to say the least.”


Aiden frowned. “Are you forcing her into something? As her brother-in-law, I think I need to stop you.”

“You really think I could force Dee into anything? All I’ve done is move us along a bit. Once she is comfortable with us being a couple, we’ll go from there.”

“Do you ever do anything like a normal person?” Aiden huffed.

“Like you, you mean? Push the woman I love away, then turn around and marry her on a whim? Yeah, so normal.”

Aiden and Bentley gaped at me, making me realize what I had said.

“You love her? I thought you didn’t believe in love.”

I shifted in my chair. “Well, I’d never met Dee.”

Bentley smiled. “Maddox, that’s great. I’m happy for you.”

“Don’t be too happy yet. I have to convince the lady.”

“You will.”

Aiden grunted. “You hurt her, I will hurt you. She’s my family.”

I met his gaze, serious. “If I hurt her, I’ll let you. She’s everything to me.”

His eyes softened in understanding. “I hear you.”

We heard the sound of footsteps, and we all stood, grabbing plates.

“Enough sharing. If we aren’t busy when they get down here, we’ll all be in shit,” I ordered.

Bentley winked as I grabbed a platter.

“Welcome to couple-hood.”
