LISA'S REVIEW: Beautiful Disaster (Jamie McGuire) Beautiful #1

Title: Beautiful Disaster

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.

I really loved this book. The story is very different from others I have read. I fell in love with bad boy Travis right along with Abby.


This book was very well written and kept me reading right until the end. The characters all had great background stories that had you hooked from beginning to end. I loved being throw into the world of underground fighting and the college life in this story. All the characters were easy to love. America's fiery personality, Abby the tormented quiet girl, Travis the bad boy fighter, and Shepley the manager. The story has twist, shocks, love, heartbreak, and happily ever after. A defiant must read for all.
