Beautiful Disaster by: Jamie McGuire

Publication Date:
August 2012

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 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.
My thoughts:
This is one of those iffy genre books. It can be classified as Young Adult or Adult. It does have some explicit content, not as if it were Fifty Shades of anything. But I would take care if letting a younger teen read this. 
I love the friendship between the top female characters they have a strong friendship, that in fact I would love to have with someone. You always need that one girl that will have your back no matter the situation. In this book they help each other out. Grante4d most of the time it seems one sided I can tell how much they love each other and the sisters have each others in their corner. 
Travis is hard to get to but somehow Abby has done it. I don't know whose more in love with who, but hope things work out for them. I would hate for things to tear them apart. Especially after the ending. Which I didn't expect.
My rating: 
5 stars
