Beautiful Disaster

Beautiful Disaster
Jamie McGuire
Simon & Schuster
goodreads

synopsis:

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, 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 ultimate college campus charmer. Intrigued by Abby’s resistance to his appeal, 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’s apartment for the same amount of time. Either way, Travis has no idea that he has met his match.

I'm torn. On one hand, I really liked the connection between Travis and Abby, and on the other hand, their relationship was a mess.

There was a lot of drama in their relationship. There were so many times in this book that I was like "why are you doing this to yourselves?!". Really, so much of the suffering could have been easily avoided if they were just more honest with each other. Sure, everyone keeps secrets, but why does it happen so often in novels?

All that aside, Beautiful Disaster was a great guilty read. I really liked their connection, especially when things were going well.  Abby and Travis had great chemistry, which is probably why I've seen so many others rave about it. I thought the storyline was really good, and I liked that I had no idea where the story was going.

I've seen that there is a new book coming out from his point of view, which could be interesting!

I'd recommend this book to people who liked Twilight and Fifty Shades of Gray; Jamie has tapped into that connection that's all consuming when you read it.

  1. I've read a lot of mixed reviews on this one. Was the writing any good, or was it a very story/character driven book that made you not want to notice crappy writing. I loved Twilight, crap writing and all, but absolutely detested Fifty Shades of Gray because I couldn't ignore the unbelievably bad writing (I mean, get a thesaurus, woman! How many times can a girl blush?). Anyway, if you're me, do you read this one, or skip it?

  11. Nozomi Entertainment mirrors what they did with the replica handbags first season to good effect with this set. The series is made up of four thinpak cases inside a heavy chipboard box hermes outlet. The box is particularly good as it captures the feel of the show just right. The front panel features a full length shot of fendi replica Yumi and Sachiko together in a near embrace while the statue of Maria is watching from being them, all framed in an elegant border. The logo looks great and the inclusion of the Lillian symbol adds to how right it all feels. The back side of the box has a really nice piece of artwork as well as it features the three http://www.cityofwestwego.com/home.asp bouten together laying down on the grass looking up with soft smiles to their faces. The next generation indeed.
