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.
This is one of those books that I put off reading, and now I’m wondering why the hell I waited so long.
I freaking love Abby and Travis. They are both stubborn and refuse to back down from each other. Abby is such a great character. She wants to start a new life, and fear she will fall back into her past if she becomes entangled with Travis. Travis is tough, and doesn’t give a damn what people think of him… until he meets Abby.
I love the roller coaster of emotions these two characters go through. People are definitely not what they seem. Travis and Abby prove this point. Beautiful Disaster shows crazy love at it’s finest.
