Title: Beautiful Oblivion
   Author: Jamie McGuire
   Format: Hardcover
   Release Date: July 1st, 2014

     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.

My Stance:

     Beautiful Oblivion is right. I loved the Beautiful Disaster series, so I mean come on, why wouldn't I pick this up. And seeing Trenton, the right hand man to Travis, I can't wait to see how they all act, and just the depth to her characters. Jamie McGuire is by far one of my favorite romance authors, granted yeah I could see why Travis was thought to be too harsh/demanding. However, after reading Walking Disaster and seeing the pain and his perspective it frames his outlook and made the story whole. I enjoyed the two.

     Trenton and Cami, I never saw that one come. However in the original series you never really see who the others fall for. So I hope we get to see more of Travis and Abby, maybe some more of their future and whatnot. However, the focus is on Trenton and Cami, and it makes me question if Trenton relied on a different brother and maybe we'll get to see a different side of the family that isn't there. Either way I can't contain my excitement for this book!

Edit: I wonder if this is told through split perspectives (Cami/Trenton). It would be interesting to see how she does it, but than again I want to see two books out of this as well. I don't know, either way it's fantastic!
