Meg's Review:

So Beautiful Disaster begins following Abby. Easygoing smart strong willed heroine. Her friend and her attend an underground fight where she first lay eyes on Travis. Not your typical meet since she is very unimpressed with him and his macho badboy type. Been there done that and she knows better. Travis on the other hand is beside himself and interested. People don't react to him like that and he has decided he is worth getting to know. Eventually he succeeds in creating a friendship with Abby, though he all but follows her around to accomplish it. This friendship slowly deepens to a love thats, well.. interesting :D They have their ups and downs, and their relationship definitely goes through trials. But they have a love thats worth the fighting. Literally. So Travis, Tattooed, sexy, lovable, sometimes asshole. He risky, proud and gorgeous, whats not to love about him. The minute he is introduced you know he is going to be a heartthrob in the book. You KNOW he is going to cause drama, and you KNOW your going to do 180's the whole book with hating and loving him. Travis was also a fresh drink of water in the fact that he was very obsessed with Abby. She is his reason for everything and he is devoted to their happiness. Some people argue his obsession was worrisome, but I see it as he found a reason to be the person he wanted to be. He changed some big things in his life to make things right between him and Abby and in the end it was a good thing for them both. I Loved this. I loved his devotion and I loved the crazy chase that was their relationship. Abby wasn't your typical heroine, which I also loved. She wasn't the timid self doubting girl. She was strong and decisive and comforting when she needed to be. She also calls him on his shit regularly. I mean yes, they have their blow ups. But usually she comes right out and calls him on the behavior. It was refreshing and entertaining. I loved every character in this book. Every single one. Usually I find myself attached to the heroine, but in this book I became emotionally invested in everyone's outcome. Each character felt like a real person, like someone I knew in real life. This book is an amazing read. It has everything. The Love, the struggle, the handsome to die for man, and the strong lovable heroine. You really can't not love it :D SO go buy it and get reading!



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.
