We’re less than a month away from the publication of the first book in the Maddox Brothers Series, BEAUTIFUL OBLIVION, and I’m stupid freaking excited for it. If you loved Travis, you are going to drop dead over Trent. You guys there's a whole family or brutally hot boys – and we really need to just thank Jamie by sending her all our love, cookies, wine, first born children…(too far?)
Many of you have probably read a first chapter excerpt in HAPPENSTANCE, but if you want even more Beautiful Oblivion, this week is going to be super fun for you because Atria Books is sponsoring an excerpt chain and giveaway JUST so you can get an extra sneak peek at Trent and Cami’s story, and I have part of that excerpt right here.
****ARE YOU READY? ****
After another half hour of studying and chewing at my barely there fingernails, my stomach began to growl. I ambled into the kitchen and opened the refrigerator. Ranch dressing. Cilantro. Why in the hell is the black pepper in the fridge? Eggs . . . ew. Fat-free yogurt. Even worse. I opened the freezer. Score. Frozen burritos.
Just before I pressed the buttons on the microwave, a knock sounded on the door. “Raegan! Stop forgetting your damn keys!” My bare feet padded around the breakfast bar and across the beige carpet. After twisting the bolt lock, I yanked on the heavy metal door, and I instantly crossed my arms over my breasts. I was only in a white tank top and boxer shorts, no bra. Trenton Maddox stood in the doorway, holding two white paper sacks.
“Lunch,” he said with a smile.
For half a second, my mouth mirrored his, but then it quickly disappeared. “How did you know where I live?”
“I asked around,” he said, walking past me. He sat the sacks on the breakfast bar, and began pulling out containers of food.
“From Golden Chick. Their mashed potatoes and gravy remind me of my mom’s. I’m not really sure why. I don’t remember her cooking.”

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.
