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.

One of my favorite guilty reads/bad boy books

Mar 04, 2018

I really enjoyed it! The story takes you through their struggling relationship and you won't want to miss a page. I'm currently reading the next book "Walking Disaster" which is Travis' POV, and I must say it's quite interesting!

This novel always makes me feel exhilarated and shows that love comes in many forms.

New York Times Bestseller????? I made it through two chapters and I can’t believe I punished myself for that long. Perhaps I put the book down to soon but I just couldn’t put up with the stupidity of the characters.

A complicated romance novel. When Abby Abernathy meets Travis Maddox, she never expects to fall in love with him, as he’s the complete opposite of her. However, after losing a bet, Abby moves in with Travis for a month. They gradually spend more time together and become more than friends. This book shows how raw love can be, and what sacrifices people make for those they deeply care about. A roller-coaster ride of emotions and exciting surprises throughout!

Travis is officially my new book boyfriend. He is such an annoying character at times ,and he is such an amazing character at times. I fell in love with him. This is a laugh out loud, cry,vent, jaw dropping kind of book. you'll love it!!!

Some people say that is book is not that good. That the story goes from yes to no between Abby and Travis. However, I think this book is just wonderful! Beautiful Disaster is the only book that I can re-read more than once, and I never have gotten bored. I think that this book has a wonderful plot, and is really interesting. Though I do agree that the Abby and Travis shouldn't have taken the whole book to be together, then break up, then be together for about the rest of their life. I personally think that I would like to know something about the wedding, or America point of view about this.

During the first disc, I wanted to quit, but I pressed on once I understood the conflict and was looking forward to how the author was going to resolve the issue. What a disappointment! This story had great promise, but the author lacked the ability to craft the story and its ending. Additionally, I felt the author was irresponsible in glossing over the fact that the two main characters took no responsibility or had seemingly little remorse for violent or illegal activity.

Wasn't what I expected. The book isdialogue driven, which I liked. But I didn't like the type of relationship between Travis and "Pidge". It seemed so unhealthy, and his possessive behaviour turned me off to him. When Pidge was given the opportunity to get out of her bet with him, I think any other rational woman would have left, instead of putting herself through that roller coaster of emotional drama. Halfway through the book the plot picked up after we find out her life story, and why she behaves the way she does. But it wasn't until then that there is any real cohesion. Until then I got so tired of the back forth between the two. GET IT TOGETHER ALREADY is what I kept thinking. Frustrating read at times. But entertaining. Not enough for me to read the second book though.

Two stubborn college students meet at a fight and through a bet end up living together. Slowly Travis and Abby's relationship takes many turns. Fights. Motorcycles. Fires. Romance. This book is for anyone who enjoys a little bit of feisty spice in their reading. Recommended by A.L., Medina Library, MCDL
