There’s a new Maddox in town! Beautiful Oblivion @jamiemcguire


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.

Casey’s Thoughts <3<3<3<3<3

Okay, so I’m just going to put it out there.  The moment I realized that there would be more Maddox’s I couldn’t contain myself.  Now that I’ve said that, let me say it took me two weeks to pick up Beautiful Oblivion to read it.  Not because I didn’t want to, but because I knew the moment I did my world would stop until the last page was read, and I’m so glad I waited until this weekend.  IT. WAS. AMAZING!

Cami is a bartender at the Red, and has a boyfriend, TJ, that pretty much doesn’t put her first.  Cami is an extremely independent young lady.  She’s a hard worker and believes in her family even though it’s not the best situation.  That all changes when Trenton Maddox makes himself a permanent statue in her life.

Trenton Maddox is just as badass as Travis and the rest of the Maddox brothers.  He’s ready to throw down at any moment, but when it comes to something he claims as his, he doesn’t give up very easy.  One difference I discovered in Trenton was his ability to not waste a moment with Cami.  When he knew that things were no longer “friends,” he jumped at the chance to be with her even though it made thing complicated.

Beautiful Oblivion is a story that made me fall in love once again with a Maddox brother even though Travis is my permanent book boyfriend.  There is just something beyond their hard exterior that makes you fall harder and harder for them.

Beautiful Oblivion not only tells you the story of Cami and Trenton, but it also gives insight into Travis and Abby’s lives as well.  I LOVED how Jamie would show another side of what people saw as were reading Beautiful Disaster.  It made them even more real.

I’m a firm believer that when you have a great story you never want it to end, and Jamie has done an amazing job in keeping these characters very much alive.  I can’t wait to see what’s next for the next Maddox brother!  Oh, and did I mention, the ending will leave you speechless!
