Beautiful Disaster Wiki

Beautiful Oblivion is the first book of the Maddox brothers series written by Jaime McGuire


The book's plot is set in the same timeline as Travis and Abby's story in Beautiful Disaster. It follows the lives of Camilla "Cami Camilin, a bartender at the Red Door and the complicated long-distance relationship she has with boyfriend T.J. After cancelled weekend plans between the two are changed due to T.J's work, Cami and her roommate Raegan go for a night out at the club they work in. Cami then ends up capturing the attention of Trenton Maddox. Together, the two develop a connection that complicates everything...


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.
