Review: Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire


Beautiful Disaster


Summary:

INTENSE. DANGEROUS. ADDICTIVE.

Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate number of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance from 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 wants—and needs—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.

My Thoughts:

Based on the summary,, there is nothing special about this book, which sort of why I did not read this book earlier than I did. I did some research on this book and I found tons of reviews which gave me quite a headache. Some people claimed this book as horrible while others can’t stop praising this book. I ended up reading this book because curiosity got the best of me. And guess what? I was so glad that I read it because it was nothing but awesome! Okay, moving to the story. This story is about Abby and Travis. Abby went to one of Travis’ fights and she caught his eyes,. And sparks flew instantly. However, Abby was warned not to get close to him because he was basically a manwhore. He proposed a friendship, and she took it. And then one day she lost a bet to him so she had to stay with him and sleep in his bed for a month. Things went out of control when Abby started dating a guy and Travis showed his displeasure of it. And one thing led to another and then bam, they had sex. Abby left right after the night which angered Travis, a lot. He went all nuts and then after a few fights they got back together. ;) Talking bout the characters, Abby is your typical girl. A lil bit insecure but knows how to stand on her ground. And Travis is just Travis. He’s overprotective, sweet, caring and everything a perfect boyfriend is, except that he’s hot tempered. I love them both though, and together, they are the perfect ‘beautiful disaster’ .The premise may be a little bit boring, but give it a try before judging it ;)

My rating:
5 Stars
