By: Jamie Mcguire
Series: Beautiful #3
My Copy: Bought from Amazon
BookWhisperer Rating: 

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.

Let's just say that this would have been a one sitting read if I didn't have to take care of all the pesky things life offers like FAMILY, CHILDREN, and a JOB! I have slacked leaving this book in my arsonal for many many moons, and now I am kicking myself in the butt for not dropping everything and reading it RIGHT AWAY! Yes, capitalization is helping me silently relieve a tad of the stress that this book has just caused me. Trenton Maddox I just might be even more in love with you than I was your brother. His character is the alpha dominant character that we are learning runs in the Maddox line, but he is also so caring and soft. The Olive and Trenton relationship really turns the tables in this story giving him a much more relaxed side that was absent with Travis. No one would ever have thought Travis and a five year old would compliment one another it would have been unnatural, but Trenton it was absolute wonderful and a spectacular fit. Camielle on the other hand is a fresh beat to the series. Her character is all rough and tough, yet sexy as hell. I loved the star bartender, and then the later addition of the tattoo shop eye candy. It is a very different feel for the female lead, but one that I highly enjoyed complimenting a Maddox brother. I followed this whole story enjoying every twist and turn, and even watching the highlight moments from the first two books from afar. The highly anticipated friction that McGuire stories hold was ever present here giving me everything I expected with another Maddox book. Everything about Beautiful Oblivion proves to be what I was anticipating except for the mack truck ending the knocked it out of the park. I mean really, who actually saw this coming and noticed all of the markers along the way that would have had readers anticipating the direction we would all fall of this cliff????? None of you! That is right Jamie McGuire is a tricky little sneak, and just left me speechless. Well, not entirely speechless by the looks of this review, but you get the idea. I can not wait for more of the Maddox brothers, and I now have suspicion of who will be next.
