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.
So we fell head over bad boy boots in love with his brother, Travis, but wait until you meet Trenton Maddox.
Think you loved Travis and Abby? Well then you are going to fall hard and fast for Trenton and Cami. Jamie McGuire has done it again and possibly…dare I say it, better? Trenton is one hot commodity you will not forget and Cami is one independent, and even pretty badass chick.
Jamie’s writing is absolutely flawless in Beautiful Oblivion and her style is one of a kind, she draws you into the world of the Maddox brothers and doesn’t let you go- which is probably why I’m writing this review at 5am immediately after finishing Beautiful Oblivion.
Let me just say that Jamie completely left my head spinning at the end of this book. Cami’s got a secret and I was completely blindsided by her secret, like holy moly talk about a plot twist. I think I got a major case of anxiety trying to figure out what Cami was hiding and let me just say, well played Jamie McGuire, well played.
So if you’re one of those people who likes to read the last page of the novel before you start it or something similar to that PLEASE DO NOT do so! You will not want to spoil the wild ride Jamie takes you on with the oh so so so very sexy Trenton Maddox.
