The new 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 needs—and wants—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.

"Beautiful Disaster is insanely addictive. Beautifully sexy, beautifully intense, and beautifully perfect. Jamie McGuire has written a damn good book." (Jessica Park, author of the New York Times best seller Flat-Out Love)
This is my all time favorite love story. So raw and captivating. Loved loved loved the narration and story. Perfection!
It was definitely one of the better ones.
I have never came across one that compares in this genre.
Travis, he was not your typical college student, but he was so much better than expected.
I had this on my wish list but a friend was reading it and told me I had to get the book. I am so glad I listened to her. This book is a great read. I cannot wait until the book from Travis's point of view comes out.
Absolutely and I have. Love the love hate relationships.
The last fight. I was so frighten that we would loose Abby or Travis. It didn't look good.
Their first bedroom experience.
Yes, I would have loved too.
A good read
Love this site! I have a very busy job, so listening to audio books enables me to keep up on great stories!
Yes, Emma Galvin is great!
When after so much drama and back and forth, they finally get together.
Each character's voice is very realistic. She helps to paint a picture.
I've read a lot of reviews about this book and there are many strong opinions about Travis. People have called him crazy, psycho, possessive. I can see this, but I also can't help but be sympathetic. To be loved so much it drives you crazy, I couldn't help but love that. Travis is all over the place, so is Abby for that matter, but I think that works for them. It was very touching.
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.
