And I'm more than happy to say that she pushed the bar way above what I expected! Some people say that 'Trenton is no Travis', my response to that is of course he's not, he's a different person who has different motives and a different past that defines who he is - but he's still one hell of a character who knows what he wants. Cami is the same - she's not a carbon copy of Abby - if she was that would be predictable and that's the one thing Jamie doesn't do, sure she can lull you into a false sense of security before ripping the rug out from under your feet with a heck of a twist, but at least she doesn't write the same old same old!
I can't wait for there to be more stories about the Maddox brothers and I can't wait to see what kind of girls end up with the rest of them (I'm secretly really looking forward to the twin's stories - cause one Maddox is more than enough so who knows what's going to happen when the twins find their women).
So get 'Cashmere comfortable' and read this book, you won't be disappointed!
We totally loved Beautiful Disaster, but we felt that Walking Disaster & Beautiful Wedding weren't on the same level so we were interested to see where Jamie would take us for Beautiful Oblivion.
"Instead of feeling ashamed of where we weren't, we could be proud of where we were going and what we would overcome to get there"
Willow: I have to start off by saying I’m in love with Trenton Maddox! I never thought any Maddox brother would come close to Travis, but Trenton certainly comes close.
Donna: For me Trenton was definitely the better man for me, I was one of the rare few that didn't fall madly for Travis, but I may have tripped for Trenton
Willow: The Story is about Cam (Camille), who has a long distance relationship with a guy named TJ. This means nothing to Trenton though, because once a Maddox boy gets you in their sight that's it! I loved this part of the book where Trent is trying to do anything to get Cam to spend time with him, he is relentless and the banter they have is very entertaining.
"I was just thinking now was as good a time as any to acknowledge you're perfect and it wouldn't suck if you fell madly in love with me anytime soon"
"I have a boyfriend" I reminded him
He waved me away "Speed bump"
Donna: The courtship was definitely entertaining. He has that Maddox charm and swagger and he has to ramp it up full throttle with Cam. He has to fire on all cylinders to make an impression. But you could tell that the charm offensive was working. The banter these two had, had me in stitches at times, but you could also tell that Trenton was sincere. I loved that he wore his heart on his sleeve and his relationship with the neighbours little girl had me melting.
Willow: oh, little Olive, it was genius how he used her to guilt trip Cam into going out for food with him. I loved Trent & Olive's relationship too! As you say Trent wears his heart on his sleeve. I’m definitely in love! One thing I noticed with this book is that Jamie had managed to capture the feel of Beautiful Disaster, I felt like she'd gone back to the roots in that respect with the story, and just like Beautiful Disaster I was sucked in.
Donna: I totally agree, Walking Disaster and Beautiful Wedding didn't have that ambience and that page turning addiction that Beautiful Disaster did and now Beautiful Oblivion has recaptured. I was totally captivated and read it in one sitting. So many entertaining side characters in this one too. The tattoo shop is one place I would love to work.
Willow: Totally agree about the Tattoo shop!
Although we can’t give too much away we have to talk a bit about TJ. Through the story you are made aware that TJ has a secret, which Cam knows, but feels it’s not her secret to tell. You are left wondering what the secret is and why it appears to be holding Cam back from Trent. Donna I know you and I had similar theories, but I have to say when you actually get the big reveal its kind of flat, and for me it kind of ruined the story a bit. I was left with a few questions I wanted Cam to answer!
Donna: I must admit my conspiracy theories were much better than what actually transpired. Like you, when all I was revealed I felt a bit urggghhhh. I think I read too many books because my brain was going overtime.
Willow: In summary for the most part I thought it was a really good book, I loved that we'd gone back to a Beautiful Disaster feel, the banter was funny and Trenton is yummy, but the ending didn't cut it for me. It could have been a 5 star, but because of the ending I’m giving it a 4.
Donna: I totally agree, I loved the book, I loved the characters, I love the balance of angst, humour and love, I laughed, I swooned but I deflated at the end and for that reason I am giving it a 4, but it could have easily been a 5.
"Just remember later that I'm sorry for whatever happens after this, and I'm sorry that when you walked away like I asked, I didn't let you go"
It’s a trait with those Maddox boys, when they love, they love with all their heart and won’t let their women go.
But Cami’s life is complicated, her family are messed up and then there’s the fact that Cami is already in a relationship!
I’m writing this with a sense of disloyalty.
When I read Beautiful Disaster I fell in love with Travis Maddox but I’m now realising that it wasn’t love, it was lust.
So it’s with a heavy heart that I say SORRY Trav, but I’m in complete and utter crazy all consuming love with your brother Trenton!
I don’t know where to start, part of me wants to threaten everyone reading Beautiful Oblivion, to tell you that Trent is mine. That he can have my body, heart and soul,
He can tattoo his name on my forehead and threaten anyone who talks to me.
But at the same time I realise that Cami is great for him, that although they are both messed up, they need each other.
So I’m going to let Cami keep him, but if she hurts him, HE IS MINE!
I think the reason I fell so hard for Trent, isn’t just his tattoos, his body or his job. It’s the way he is with Olive. A young girl who Trent looks after and clearly loves.
The chapters with her and him, warmed my heart. I just wanted to jump into the pages and hug them both.
There is a part in the story where Trent explains why the Maddox boys love like they do, I cried.
Hearing him say it, it broke my heart!
The truth is, I love Jamie McGuire and her books, every word she writes is filled with emotion, but I think Beautiful Oblivion is my favourite.
Although that being said JAMIE, PLEASE WRITE TRENTS STORY, to read his words, his emotions, his thoughts, would be incredible and I would willingly trade my first born (sorry future child, mummy needs this book)
There are so many incredible characters in this book and I won’t lie, I’m pinning my hopes on lots of books following them all!
That’s the thing I love most about Jamie McGuires books, every character feels real and leaves you wanting to know more about them.
So on my hands and knees, I beg you, please Lady, can I have some more!
