Beautiful Disaster – Jamie McGuire

 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.


This book is amazing – one of those that you cant put down when you start. One of those books which effects your emotions.  It’s such a complicated roller-coaster ride – quite like Travis and Abby’s relationship!  I love how he calls her Pigeon, at first I didn’t get it but now I do.  There is a lot of abuse in this book, no domestic violence but lots of guys getting beaten up which is quite gruesome but in a strange way I found myself okay with it.  People are comparing this book to a drug.  And I agree, it’s a book which pulls on your heart strings whilst at the same time makes you feel annoyed because you just want them to get the hell together already!  I’m gutted that I have to wait until next year to get my next fix but I’m so looking forward to the sequal.  The author is a genius.  I imagined Travis to be a beefier version of Professor Green.

I’m rating this book as a must read.
