Author Info: website

Rating: ★★★


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

Another book I found that I forgot to post the review 0-o Do not worry there is no more books after this since from now on I will write a spreadsheet for all the book that I read.

I read Beautiful Disaster sometimes last year but luckily  I still remember what I want to say. This book attracted me due to its amazing synopsis.  I know some people do not like it because Beautiful Disaster is a little bit mature and contents some bad words. But really it did not bother me much and as of today when they have a new category New Adult, this book fits in perfectly. New Adult is likely YA but the main characters will be in college or in their 20s and the love interest will be more mature with a few/or maybe alot of cursing.

Let me tell you why this book had draw me in the first place despite I dislike the cover and the book itself did not receive a lot of attentions. What you will be getting into is this: a bet that made Abby to move in with Travis (the bad boy reputation with a mess up sex life) for a month. There sure will be drama but it's manageable (HighSchool drama is the worst in my opinion) and some fun moments. It's a really quick read since the story is fast paced. I love Travis more than Abby, I found her somewhat annoying in the middle of the story. Abby came off strong but when she knew she had feeling for Travis, she just became a little bit paranoid.

As a conclusion I like the storyline, it's sure a fun/ pleasure read =D
