Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
OK so here is the overview -
The new 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.
Now here is my review -
Mmmm mmm mmm....what good girl doesn't love a bad boy. Lol. I LOVED this book. Now, I'm DYING to get an autogaphed copy! If you want one too, it can be pre-ordered at Barnes and Noble.
Ok enough promotion lol. There has been a lot of talk about a movie...and I know this isn't exactly a review of the book, BUT - if anyone has seen the Maroon 5 video for One More Night - HE is how I picture Travis Maddox! All tattooed and yummy!
Ok, NOW my true review - I loved it, I didn't like the somewhat dysfunctional relationship Abby and Travis had at first...and it was a little tiresome all the ups and downs...I wanted to scream at them and say, "JUST BE TOGETHER ALREADY! Everyone else knows it's going to happen...so just let it."
However, I did like how complex the characters were. I liked the multiple story lines, I kind of wish we could see more of Travis' roommate and Abby's friend's story...but it looks like there may be a follow up and will be a series - so I can't wait to see what the author brings in next for the crazy lovebirds.
This is the my first read of any of the authors titles and I have to say that I have now founds a new favorite author!
