Beautiful Oblivion is the first in the Maddox Brothers series and the third book in the Beautiful series by Jamie McGuire. I have loved this series from the get-go and fell in love with Trenton Maddox. Beautiful Oblivion takes place during Abby and Travis Beautiful Disaster, and we catch glimpses of their world-wind relationship.
In A Beautiful Wedding McGuire answers the questions about how Abby became Mrs. Maddoxx, Why did Abby pop the question? What secrets were shared before the ceremony? Where did they spend their wedding night? Who else knew about it . . . and didn’t tell?
I adored Jamie McGuire’s Beautiful series and was quite curious when she embarked on a dystopian zombie book for her next adventure. Red Hill offered up a made for television break-out, joining together groups of survivors as they made their way to Red Hill; a property that connected them. The writing was beautiful but not without flaws. Mini review: interesting, heart-wrenching and at times irritating.
After devouring the turbulent romance of Travis and Abby in Beautiful Disaster I was on pins and needles awaiting the companion book Walking Disaster told from Travis point of view. Every story has two sides and McGuire shared the raw, gritty, emotional side of Travis and his relationship with Abby. I literally consumed this in a single afternoon, as I laughed, cried and found myself swept up in the beautiful disaster of these damaged soul-mates
I grabbed a copy of Beautiful Disaster after seeing so many conflicting and passionate reviews. I had to know what within these pages was eliciting such feelings. Beautiful Disaster is a realistic look into the lives of two dysfunctional people who meet and fall in love. McGuire offers us a chance to get inside the complexities of this relationship and to understand what draws the moth to the flame.
