INTENSE. DANGEROUS. ADDICTIVE.
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 wants—and needs—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 will grab you instantly from the beginning with a force so tight there is no chance to let go.
Abby is starting a new life. She is trying to escape her past with her best friend America at her side. America convinces Abby to go to an underground fight. Shelpey, America’s boyfriend, cousin is fighting.
Travis, the tattooed, defined, fighter wins his fight, and notices Abby after blood is sprayed all over her after his winning punch. Travis is drawn to Abby, and wants to continue a friendship with her. Abby knows that Travis is not the kind of person for her, but she cannot deny being drawn to him.
After Travis and Abby make a bet, she loses, and this will change their friendship relationship.
Abby’s past catches up with her, and Travis is more than willing to help Abby out of the mess.
Beautiful Disaster is an incredible read with the love-hate relationship between Abby and Travis. America and Shepley are always at their side. Travis definitely has a hotness that cannot be ignored. As the story unfolds, Abby’s past is revealed and you gain an understanding on why she is trying to ignore her attraction to Travis. Abby is definitely stubborn, and that attracts Travis even more. She is far different from the other girls that seem to throw themselves at Travis’ feet. However, even Abby cannot deny any longer how perfect Travis is for her.
