Beautiful Oblivion

Loved this book!! I don’t know what took me so long to read it after reading The Beautiful Disaster series because I loved those books. I know that I didn’t think the other brothers would be as interesting as Travis, but I was wrong. Trenton Maddox is definitely interesting. He is a bad-ass tattoo artist with an attitude but with a sweet side to him as well. I liked Cami. She is independent, knows what she wants and will stand up for herself.

I liked that they butted heads and fought. It wasn’t all butterflies and rainbows with these two, they portrayed a real relationship. There were a few side characters that made quite the appearances throughout the book. I didn’t mind though, I found the whole story flowed nicely. It has a good pace. I like that you got to see Travis in this story, as Cami worked at the Red Door which was a bar that Travis frequented.

The ending had me like “Whaaaaaaaa?!?” Total cliff hanger. Sets it up nicely for her next book Beautiful Redemption, which will feature another Maddox brother. I am hoping he will be just as interesting as the other two. This is definitely a New Adult book. There is quite the graphic sex scene somewhere in the middle, plus some other other sexual content. Overall, great book with awesome writing. Another good Jamie McGuire book to go on the shelf.

Fiercely independent Camille “Cami” Camlin gladly left behind her childhood before it was over. She’s had 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 besides work and classes, until a cancelled trip to see her boyfriend leaves her with her first weekend off in a year.

Trenton Maddox was the king of Eastern State University, dating coeds before he even graduated high school. Guys wanted to be him, and women wanted to tame him, but after a tragic accident turned his world upside down, Trent left campus to come to grips with the crushing guilt.

Eighteen months later, Trent is living at home with his widower father, and working 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 Door.

As the older sister of three rowdy brothers, Cami believes she’ll have no problem keeping her new friendship with Trent Maddox strictly platonic. But when a Maddox box falls in love, he loves forever – even if Cami is the only reason his already broken family could fall apart.
