I would I loved the story. IT was simply the title. A beautiful disaster!
The love the main character ends up having for the man but she doesnt realize it....and vice versa.
i cant remember it was a while ago since i read it. But the end fire scene sticks out to me.
I just came off of fifty shades and i was looking for something similar. This def was NOT IT lol but it was a great read anyways!
Close to the top
All of it.
I can't wait for Walking Disaster to come out
If they like romance and YA...its a little older than YA, but a good story with interesting characters. Sometimes the Travis character bugged me a bit (come on guy, get a backbone). But it was cute and I can totally see a movie in it....which I think they might be doing.
God no! What more could there be to tell?
This was a completely enthralling book. One of those you need to listen to on a weekend, so you can keep the ear-buds on, for the entirety of the book. The characters scoop you up into their world, and won't let you go. The two main characters of the book, Abby and Travis get involved in a volatile relationship, that neither can pull themselves away from, when the reader can easily see it would be for the best. It's not your typical romance novel, and I don't think I can even categorize this book. It's an emotional roller coaster for the characters and the listener. I try not to analyze it too much, and just chalk it up as one of those books, that I couldn't put down, and really don't understand why.
If the characters had matured over the course of the book.
Constantly pressured speech.
Everyone but Finch.
Trying to come off 50 Shades of Grey Trilogy (both written and audible - I did both multiple times) I went to Bared to You - while interesting...they were "50% of 50 Shades"
No more..worth reading, but I was looking for "more". Beautful Disaster was that, was touching and it just grabbed me in a visceral way. You felt again with reality young love with the emotional roller coaster of this age group! I read it first and had to get the audible! LOVE both! Travis & Pidge are unforgettably real and you just fall in love with them! I can't wait for Walking Disaster (Travis' POV)!!!! Audible, don't let me down! I'll look forward to listening to this as well!!!!!
I bought this book to listen to in the car on one of my longer trips and though I had already read it, I was pleasantly surprised to listen to it with another's inflection. Emma Galvin made everything completely believable and enjoyable all over again.
Travis is such a wreck but absolutely irresistable in his desperation to be loved!
Admittedly the relationship between Abbey and Travis is like a demolition derby but angst and emotion and bad boys in love will win me over every time!
I listened to this book in one sitting, starting it on a 5 hour drive, then staying up late into the night to finish it. I found myself loving it and hating it at different parts, but I honestly think it meant that I was really invested in the book. When the characters were having problems, I was upset, and when they were good, so was I. I also give credit to the performance for that too. And I loved Travis, he had problems... But the author does well with character development so it worked out.
A lot of reviewers have mentioned the "abusive" nature of their relationship, and I personally feel that this is a little bit of an exaggeration. He throws temper tantrums (trashes his bedroom when she leaves him at one point), but he never did anything that would actually harm Abby. He's pretty much the same "over-protective bad boy who falls fast for the plain girl, brings her into his scary world, is super broody and dangerous, and eventually becomes a softie because of some magical taming quality that only she has the power to use." ...with way more complexity and no paranormal element.
Overall, I think this book is pretty unrealistic, but if you just remember that it's fiction, it's a "black tar heroin addiction" of a read and I thought about the characters and love story for days afterwards. In fact, writing this review makes me want to listen again...
I've already recommended it to a few friends. Try it!
*sidenote* The author is currently working on the publication of the book from Travis' perspective. I'm ridiculously excited to read this, because there are a few parts where I wanted to grab Travis and shake him, yelling, "what are you thinking?!" Now, I will know, and I think I'll love Travis and Abby even more!
yes I love it!
Travis he is awesome!
yes she did a great job!
I love it I cry and laugh with this book it was awesome!
can't wait for the next book so exaited she is writting it!
I loved this book! I loved the relationships and the growth of Remy. So relatable. Maybe not the fight club but still the college experience. I absolutely loved it. I can't stop thinking about it!
