Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"Beautiful Disaster is insanely addictive. Beautifully sexy, beautifully intense, and beautifully perfect. Jamie McGuire has written a damn good book." Jessica Park, author of New York Times bestseller Flat-Out Love

Review:

"Characters, backstory, goals, motivations and conflicts are a great mix of angst, crippling inner demons and harsh real life. The pace has a rhythmic beat of two steps forward, four steps back as Abby and Travis grapple with their fierce attraction. Jamie McGuire writes with no holds barred. She writes with honest reflection on young people who move through life by their own rules....The entire cast lives hard, fights hard, and certainly loves hard. Deliciously intense." USA Today

It all started with a snippet. A friend posted a small one from the book and it intrigued me enough to find out what book it was from. I bought the book and went in to it with no expectations having never read the author before. Beautiful disaster had me hooked from the first page. There's just something about the dynamics of the relationship between Abby and Travis that draws you in.

This new adult contemporaary novel by Jamie Mcguire features two dysfunctional characters who are inexorably drawn towards each other despite their foibles and flaws. The book is a fast paced romance that proves two broken halves can come together to create a harmonious new whole.

I know there are so many "high brow", great books that were published in 2012 - but for pure, escapist fun, Beautiful Disaster was for me. Can't wait for Walking Disaster.

Just call me Pigeon!
