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.
Sometimes a book comes along that just grabs you and once it has you in it's clutches you will never forget it! Well Beautiful Disaster is one of those books for me! Two college age students meet at an underground fight held on Eastern University Campus. Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She don's her cardigans and preppy clothes with pride. Abby has reinvented herself and she is convinced that she will not stray from her this new path and life she created. She will not be the girl she once was. Abby attends this fight with her best friend America who happens to be dating Shepley. Well Shepley is the cousin and roommate of Travis "Mad Dog" Maddox who is in the ring that night. He made his entrance shirtless to the cheers of the crowd! He appeared relaxed and unaffected and he was described as having "lean muscles stretched under his tattooed skin" Oh boy and this is where I started to fall in love with him and I can so picture this............. Travis is known as a "player" around campus! He doesn't do relationships but he does a lot of "one night stands". Abby "Pigeon" as Travis calls her wants nothing to do with him at first. A bet is made. A bet is lost and Abby has agreed to live in Travis' apartment for a week.... Now see I have no self-restraint so when I lost that bet, because I would ensure I did, I would be doing this.................... A friendship is formed a bond is made. Will Travis & Abby become more than friends? Can Travis change his reputation on campus as a "player" that ALL the girls want? and as for Abby has she ALWAYS been a "good girl" and what's in her past that she is so insistent on remaining on the straight path? Well if you've read my reviews you know I don't hand out spoilers and you have to read the book :) But I can share some of my feelings that I experienced while reading the book! There is a scene that takes place at Travis's apartment on his couch that had me doing this............................................... If I was Abby and I had to watch all the girls that gravitated to "Mad Dog" well I would pay to do this....................................... The story is told from Abby's POV and that works for this but I think there were definitely some vibes of this nature going on............... Beautiful Disaster is one of those stories that will pull out each and every emotion which makes it such a FANTASTIC read! There were times where I laughed, I was mad, I was excited and then times I just........ towards the behavior that Travis exhibited but when you are experiencing feelings you aren't accustomed to I guess he would deal with them the only way he new how, and what do you think that was!! There was a certain part of the book where I literally................. and when I finished the book this was my first thought................. This is more than 5 +++++ star read for me!!!! I cannot put in words how much I love Travis & Abby!!!! How much I love America & Shepley :) yes I had more than a few laughs at their expense and I didn't mention them much in this review because I was truly consumed with all things related to Travis & Abby. If you have't read this book I recommend you read it NOW and do it very soon cause in 67 days Walking Disaster comes out which is the same story but told from Travis POV!! Yes I'm fan-girling hard I preordered it and I cannot wait. I have a severe book crush on "Mad Dog" Go, go now and get Beautiful Disaster :) If you've read it before well do what I did read it again :) in preparation for Walking Disaster cause you can never have enough of Travis!!!!
