Editorial Reviews

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

"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)

"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.

The title says it all. These two are in fact a beautiful disaster. Abby and her best friend decide to attend Eastern University to get away from Abby's past and start somewhere new where no one knows her. The last thing she expected was to end up at an underground fight club and catch the eye of Eastern University's ladies man. Travis Maddox can be a real jerk and rage machine, but he's dealing with a lot of underlying issues that he tries to escape with destructive behavior. McGuire writes an amazing book with a unexpected back story regarding Abby. One that is different and exciting to watch unfold. I loved the writing. This book has it all, great writing, fun and sexy characters, witty banter, screaming matches, fight club, and VEGAS! Can't wait to read what comes next from McGuire!

Original review @ [...]
No, no I will not start this off with a memorable quote or particularly witty comment from the book because besides the fact that there is nothing remotely memorable or witty in this book I will not give it the satisfaction. I am sorry and must make a disclaimer here. As a rule, I am not mean about books, I do not enjoy being rude about another person's work but this book I could not let slide. Preview: I found it offensive, degrading and overall a complete slap in the face to women everywhere which is why I will be so heated in my thoughts on this. I read this book roughly a week and a half ago and I am still enraged that I wasted my time. In fact, the more I think about it the angrier I get because I know people who love this book and that fact alone gives me the urge to go into a blind rage.

Anyways, I will write this and let out all my aggression and then be done thinking about this. WARNING: SPOILERS HERE...YOU'VE BEEN WARNED.

This book has so many things wrong with it I do not know where to begin so to summarize; Abby is a freshman at college, Travis is a sophomore and the resident guy who sleeps with everyone on campus. He fights in an underground fighting club where he beats the living daylights out of random other students for money. Classy guy already, right? So Abby is best friends with America who is dating Travis's cousin/roommate Shep, thus they meet and for some unknown reason after banging 90% of the student body he becomes enthralled with Abby who is immune to his, erm, charms? She tries to fend him off in a complete mature and rational way...when she sees him she purposely wears pajamas, no makeup and glasses...um, ok?
