Hosted by Breaking the Spine
Waiting On Wednesday (WOW) is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating at A Bookish Escape.

Beautiful Oblivion

by Jamie McGuire

New Adult Contemporary Romance

Expected 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.

Why We Can't Wait:

We absolutely loved Beautiful Disaster and we can't wait to read about Trenton's story. We got to see a bit more of the Maddox brothers in Walking Disaster and they stole our hearts. We are ready for this series!!! Bring it!!!!
Ps Ria is not the biggest fan of this cover compared to the Beautiful Disaster covers she finds this one slightly lacking...Though Peacocks and Owls are on her Fav's list(so its not that, hm not sure what it is)...anyway Her commitment to all things Maddox still has her jumping up and down for this!!

What Are You Waiting On?


  1. Never read Beautiful Disaster but this series seems more my style. I like the how simple the cover is, although the blues should be brighter.

  2. I loved Beautiful Disaster, it was the book that ultimately made up my mind in favour of YA novels! . Still have to read Walking Disaster, but will definitely do so. And then I'll probably read this one as well ;) I hope you enjoy it :) Thanks for sharing
