Beautiful Oblivion (The Maddox Brothers series Book 1) – Jamie McGuire

The Beautiful 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 her 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 parlour 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 instalment of The Maddox Brothers series, readers can experience the rush of reading Beautiful Disaster for the first time, all over again.

MY REVIEW
I have totally fallen in love with Trenton Maddox he made this book for me, and i so want him to ink me, those moments he inked Cami were really beautiful.
The Maddox brothers are impossible not to love, Jamie writes these men so they have lovable bad boy quality about them. I loved that Trent had a bad boy exterior to match Travis but deep down he had this really sweet side to him.
I thought the journey that Trent and Cami’s relationship took was entertaining it wasnt a easy journey at times, but there were some really beautiful moments. Trent has loved Cami for years but has never made the move to pursue her because of the guilt he carries around. Then that moment comes when things clicks into place and Trent cannot see his life without Cami in it. Cami has a almost never present boyfriend who really irritated me from the beginning, they really didnt fit together at all. I have to say i didnt like TJ and then BAM the ending revelation slaps you in the face and you find out who he actually is. I did not see that coming and it had me a little confused for a time.
I did like some of the secondary characters within this story, but i found Cami’s family to be a set of complete jerks, i didnt really like any of them they all seemed self centred and not nice people at all.
I really liked start to a new series and look forward to reading more about the Maddox brothers.
