First off I'm such a huge fan of Nyrae Dawn and also this series. After falling in love with Adrian in Facade I couldn't wait to find out what was eating at Maddox.
For Maddox he is mad at the world but in reality he is mad at himself for not telling the truth that could have changed everything.
For Bee she is another bitter Betty with a her own hurts, anger and secrets.
Together they both have 'needs' and use each other to get what they need until...reality doesn't make them anonymous any more and they start to need each other in other ways.
For Maddox and Bee they are both so broken and guarded but with Laney's pushy ways, Adrian's beautiful heart and reality they realize that to heal they can only do so by needing each other for it.
Great story, Great series. I do hope we will be seeing more in this series.
