I cannot believe I don’t have a post for this one. And honestly, all that I remember is that I loved at the time, despite being kind of a regular one, a romance, yes, but no fantasy in there. Yet, it hooked me for a time. 💞
Now, there is a movie in the making, and for some reason, I am excited about it. I am not feeling the actors that much, but I want to watch. Filming ends this week, and Jamie has been giving us regular news on it, and it’s making me want to read the book again. There are two sides of Beautiful Disaster, from Abby’s point of view and from Travis’, and the one from Travis freaking Maddox was too much excitement. I mean, he is on my list of favourite male characters in books, so there I admit that bad boys do hold their appeal.
Okay, so my memories are fuzzy because I read this one ages ago, but I want to give the description, and you can decide from that.
About Beautiful Disaster
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 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.
So, I think you might know where that bet led and how this ended up being a romance-filled one in the end. The slow burn, the denial, the heat, the chemistry, Beautiful Disaster is one of those books that can make you go into a binge read of romance, new adult, and spicy books. I know it did with me, it was one of the first ones I read in this genre, and it all went up from there. I actually should thank Jamie McGuire for this one, I haven’t read the other books related to this one, but I have them, and they have been waiting; the series related to Beautiful (this one) is The Maddox Brothers Series.
If you’d like to know more about the movie, you can check out Jamie’s Instagram. Sorry, this post is starting to look a little sponsored. I swear that it’s not, if it were, I would tell you.
Moving on, have you read this book? Or any book by this author? I think she has a good style, I don’t know about the other books she has published, but the few I read were good enough to make me write this and recommend it, so that’s something. 😂
I think I am going to stop now and leave it at that. I do hope you found a new read, and if you’d like, you can come back for more, remember that this month will continue as such, with old book reviews and some about new reads that were published long ago but are new to me.
Thank you for sticking to the end, dearies! And don’t forget to like or follow the blog for more. 🔔💻
“Let me guess, it’s the love of your life?” I said quoting Travis’ statement about his motorcycle.
