The Beautiful Disaster and Walking Disaster phenomenon continues in the first heart-pounding new adult romance in The Maddox Brothers series.
Fiercely independent Camille "Cami" Camlin gladly moved on from her childhood before it was over. She has held down a job since before she could drive, and moved into her own apartment after her freshman year of college. Now tending bar at The Red Door, Cami doesn’t have time for much else besides work and classes, until a trip to see her boyfriend is cancelled, leaving her with a first weekend off in almost a year.
Trenton Maddox was the king of Eastern State University, dating co-eds before he even graduated high school. His friends wanted to be him, and women wanted to tame him, but after a tragic accident turned his world upside down, Trenton leaves campus to come to grips with the crushing guilt.
Eighteen months later, Trenton is living at home with his widower father, and works full-time at a local tattoo parlor to help with the bills. Just when he thinks his life is returning to normal, he notices Cami sitting alone at a table at The Red.
As the baby sister of four rowdy brothers, Cami believes she’ll have no problem keeping her new friendship with Trenton Maddox strictly platonic. But when a Maddox boy falls in love, he loves forever—even if she is the only reason their already broken family could fall apart.
In the first installment of the Maddox Brothers books, readers can experience the rush of reading Beautiful Disaster for the first time, all over again.
Camille has always known that the Maddox boys were trouble. And when Trenton Maddox walks up to her table at Red, the bar she works at, she knows she would do well to stay away. Especially since she has a boyfriend. Even though he does live out of state. But it doesn’t take much for them to connect and to begin hanging out.
Trenton is confident, has a big heart, and a bit of a temper. Even though he has a temper, I felt like he was less volatile and more mature and controlled than Travis was.
Cami is no a wallflower. She gives as good as she gets. She is caring, smart, sassy, and has a love/hate relationship with her brothers.
I loved Trent and Cami They were such a cute couple. They have their own set of drama and baggage, but together they had each other’s backs. They were such a cute couple.
This is one of those books that practically kept a smile on my face the entire time I was reading. That ending??? I don’t even know what to say except…Well you got me Jamie McGuire. You got me really good because I did not see that coming from even a mile away. Well done.
Abby and Travis will always hold a special place in my heart, but Trenton and Camille are right next to them. I found it hard to stop reading. I would pick it up on my lunch and then break, it was hard to leave those two alone for very long.
Beautiful Oblivion was a very enjoyable story to dive into. It isn't filled with as much angst and emotional feels like Beautiful Disaster was, but there was still plenty going on. And I loved every drama filled minute of it.
RATING: 4½ out of 5.
