I have recently read Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire. It is a story about “good-girl” Abby, who goes to Eastern University with her best friend, she thinks that she has put enough distance between her and her rough childhood. She meets Travis Maddox, who is a hunk of yumminess, Eastern University’s resident bad boy. He is lean, muscular, and covered in tattoos, what else could a girl need. Travis spends his nights fighting in an underground fighting ring and bringing home a different girl most nights. He meets Abby and they become friends. Abby goes to one of his fights and makes a bet with him, if he loses he has to remain abstinent for one month, but if he wins the bet Abby has to live with him for one month.
As you read this book you see them fall for each other. Once I started reading it I couldn’t put it down, it is intense and they both are perfectly stubborn. Abby tries to stay away but she can’t and when her past shows up will Travis leave her hanging or will he be there for her?
Ms. McGuire weaves a very addictive love story. She has a way of making you feel what the characters are feeling. I am now reading Walking Disaster (book 2); this is from Travis’ perspective. I have read some things about people reading the books concurrently. I will let you know how this works out in my next review!—Brooke Vickers
