3.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing and fulfilling, June 25, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Beautiful Disaster (Kindle Edition)
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.

I think this book was totally LAME!! ANd I can't believe some people gave this 5 stars. The plot and characters are completely silly and unrealistic. Don't waste your money on this garbage.

I loved your review it says exactly the same thing that I was feeling. Well put about if you wanted a picture perfect book then find a more Twilight type book, where the worst thing is she might have to become a VAMPIRE or the whole VAMPIRE population might show up in town and kill everybody, please. I could see this book being a movie because despite that there are some seriously exaggerated, at times emotion/actions but there is always stuff cut out of movies, too. I liked it, not sure what I expected and it was nothing like I expected but I loved it - great book!

I really wanted to leave a review of this book, but everything you said was what I would have said, especially about the end being tied up in a neat bow and the epilogue being silly. In fact, if the book had ended with no epilogue, I would have probably liked it even more. That being said, I'm surprised by how much I still think about this book and these characters . I finished the book in a hurry, then I had to spend several days digesting it, going back and re--reading scenes (and not just the steamy ones). It got under my skin in a very unexpected way.
