This is such a well written love story by author Jamie McGuire.
Cori Gilileo
She wrote a story that isn't poorly written, really, but just wasn't a book I could get into and seem to appreciate like a lot of other people out there.
Lovin' Books
A very real, classic love story, full of drama passion and romance.

"When you're around, I don't need booze or money or the fighting or the one-night stands ... all I need is you. You're all I think about. You're all I dream about. You're all I want."

There are thousands of reviews of this series already, so why must I post another one? Well, I do feel the need to say something in tribute of the one and only Travis `Mad Dog' Maddox!

But first, I did something different - I read both books together concurrently and I really enjoyed it. Abby's POV (book 1) serves as the backbone of the series and then Travis' POV (book 2) adds to it and it's such a treat to read his thoughts and feeling - to get even closer to the enigma that is Travis Maddox.
Whether you are planning to re-read or if you have not read series yet, I highly recommend you read them together in tandem. The experience was epic!

This book centers on a new college student with a hope to stay out of trouble. Of course the first thing that happens is that she catches the eye of the school "bad boy".

I enjoyed the dynamics within the first half of the book, even how the sexual tension between Maddox and Abby was sometimes unbearable.

This is not a book about perfect love, and happily ever after. Don't get me wrong, the ending wrapped everything up with a pretty little bow. However, the relationship was so raw and emotional that the rollercoaster that was their relationship became quite stressful. By the end of the book I just wanted them to stop fighting! I believe the ending was a bit hasty, and the epilogue a bit silly.

However, the plot about Abby's past is truly creative and unexpected. I am not used to books about dysfunctional and unhealthy relationships. If you are sick of Twilight harmony and love, this book encapsulates everything human about a relationship. The love, tears, sex and fights. There is a relatively good understanding of reality, with some strands of a life that most of us are unaware of.

If you like lust, illegal college fight nights, poker and of course good sex, I would tell you to take a chance on this one.

What a freaking roller coaster ride! I just could NOT put this down, and stayed up until the wee hours of the morning for 2 nights in a row to read this! Beautiful Disaster is the PERFECT title for this book, because that is exactly what Travis and Abby are...

I feel I should say that this is not typical YA, and is meant for college aged teens and adults. There's violence, sex, language, and a VERY unhealthy relationship - borderline toxic... that said, this book was fantastic. I relived some of my college experiences, and I may have cried, a bit. I look forward to reading Jamie's other books!

Six words, tree sentences: Buy it. Devour it. Love it.
And you will absolutely love it. I give you my word.

Beautiful Disaster is a heartwarming and heartbreaking, beautifully written, wonderfully told, passionate and often witty love story, that doesn't just explore the warm, sweet side of love, but also the complicated and messy side. I was so enthralled by it that I didn't want it to end.

I devoured every word of it, adored Abby and Travis (this two were truly a beautiful disaster), and I hope there will be more and more YA novels with 18 to 20 year old protagonists.

It was an amazing ride, full of great characters, exciting and sigh-worthy moments, drama, laughter, and countless emotions. Kudos to you, Jamie McGuire!

This story owned me from the start. The opening line hooked me and the characters held me in their world until the conclusion. Maybe this was because I related so much to Abby, and Travis seemed to be based upon my husband. Whatever the reason, I couldn't put the book down, especially in the middle of the character's conflict. There's no way I could have slept! I had to finish the book before going to bed, and was very pleased with the ending.

I FREAKING LOVE THIS BOOK! There's just no other way to say it. I started reading it and all I wanted to do was read this book without stopping but of course I had to go to work, so not doable LOL! However, I finished it in like three sittings and as soon as I was done with it, I started reading it all over AGAIN! That's how much I loved it. I'm in the process of re-reading it and I'm taking it slower savoring every second. This book has me smiling all day as it pops into my mind and maks me sigh and daydream. It's simply wonderful. Perfectly written with it's wonderfully flawed characters and messy relationships. I can't wait to read this writer's other books which I had also inadvertently already purchased because they had caught my attention but now that I have read this one I'm really looking forward to reading; once I get over my love affair with this one that is. Get this book and read it, you will love it.
