Title: Beautiful Oblivion
Series: Maddox Brothers, #1
Author: Jamie McGuire

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.

Beautiful Oblivion begins when Cami's boyfriend bails on her again for their weekend for his job. So she and her best friend and roommate decide to go to the bar that they work at to hang out. While there Trenton Maddox comes up to Cami and they start to have fun together. From that night on they end up becoming very good friends. But those feelings are starting to confuse Cami, and Trent just knows that he loves her... These two have a whole lot to get through before they will have their happily ever after. 

 I'm so disappointed with this book. It did not live up to Beautiful Disaster expectations. The sad thing is, that I loved the characters in this one even more than Beautiful Disaster, it was just the plot line of the book that was lacking. And I felt like we didn't get enough emotions from Trent and Cami when it came to their relationship. Then the ending was horribly abrupt that left me confused as to what is going to happen next, and I ended up having to reread that last page a few times just to have it make sense because it threw me for a loop. I do want to read the next one, but I'm looking forward to it like I was this one.

  1. I am sad that you did not enjoy this as much. I really want to read Beautiful Disaster, so maybe I should stop there!

    1. I loved Beautiful Disaster, but when Walking Disaster came out I loved that one a whole lot more, but it kind of made me hate the heroine a little bit in both books now. I hope you get to read them soon!
