Review: Beautiful Disaster

Genre: New Adult-Contemporary
Author: Jamie McGuire
Publisher: Self-published
Release Date: 2011
Book: Bought

"The new Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate percentage of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance between her and the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend America, her path to a new beginning is quickly challenged by Eastern University’s Walking One-Night Stand.

Travis Maddox, lean, cut, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby needs—and wants—to avoid. He spends his nights winning money in a floating fight ring, and his days as the charming college co-ed. Intrigued by Abby’s resistance to his charms, Travis tricks her into his daily life with a simple bet. If he loses, he must remain abstinent for a month. If Abby loses, she must live in Travis’ apartment for the same amount of time. Either way, Travis has no idea that he has met his match."

I am sucker for love. Everyone who know me knows that. So when a friend of my recommended this book I couldn't resist and bought it. It's books like that this that make me wonder why in the world is she not freaking published! If she was this book would be flying off the walls! This book is awesome sauce! The whole nine yards! The whole enchilada! And if I could, I read it over and over again I would. Oh wait...I already did that!

So what made me fall in love in this story. The plot. Hands down the plot. The plot is simple. Cute bad boy. Good girl running away from her past. Mix together and BAM! Let me tell you that I could not stop smiling and laughing so much. Even my hubby got a little jealous at the fact of me smiling like a teenage girl on the couch! The plot is awesome. I loved that is filling to the reader with every page turn. There's no boredom, no confusement, just pure entertainment till the very last page.

The characters of this book totally rocked my world. I love Travis. His smile, his smart remarks, his corky smirk that makes me what to grab his face and kiss him! Travis is sooo him! I love that Ms. McGuire gave such a great insight to Travis that the reader feels as if you know him. It's like you've been friends for a long time. And Abby. I love this girls as well. She strong, level-headed and knows where she is going. She doesn't play games, but tells the truth like it is. She reminds me of :)

The love interest in this book is great. I loved reading the up and downs of Travis and Abby. Cause like them no relationship is perfect. To see them conquer their past together, to grow and rely on each other is so lovely! 

A Beautiful Disaster achieves an engrossing and entertaining love that everyone will fall for. A rich, powerful story of love and friendship, A Beautiful Disaster excels in everything I hope for. Courage, strength, and a love that is so rare to find.


I give it 5 BITES!

Happy Reading!
