I'd been buying books for my new kindle and this one was repeatedly recommended. At first I was a bit put off, thinking the title sounded a bit too much like a twisted romance novel for me but then, after seeing it recommended a good eight or nine times, I caved in and bought it. Oh. My. GOD! I am so pleased I did. I literally sat and read the whole thing in a matter of hours. Complete and utter page-turner. I couldn't get enough of it and loved the ending (it caught me completely off guard!). I don't often go for books I haven't heard of or authors I don't know any work by, but this truly is a fantastic book and you will not be disappointed. The characters were realistic, the emotions were raw and I found myself tearing up multiple times during the end of the book. I honestly cannot recommend enough. You need to read this book!!!

I absolutely loved Beautiful Disaster - for me, it was one of those books that you can't put down, but you also don't want to read too quickly because you can't bear for it to be over. Because of this, I started reading it over, as soon as I finished the book the first time!

I noticed from Jamie McGuire's website that she has plans to write the story from Travis' perspective and I can't wait for this to be released. I think I fell in love with him just a little bit reading this story.

I adore books that have, at their heart, a passionate love story where you feel the characters' attraction, obsession, joy and pain as their relationship develops and this book delivered it in spades.

By Sarah (Feeling Fictional) TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 9 Oct. 2012
Format: Paperback
It's hard to know where to start when it comes to reviewing Beautiful Disaster. This is the kind of book that readers have either loved or hated and I have to admit to enjoying every minute of it. If you want to read about a perfect and healthy relationship then this isn't going to be the book for you but if you like your stories with a lot of angst between two dysfunctional people then you'll be completely hooked. Whether you end up loving or hating it you are pretty much guaranteed to have a strong reaction to this novel and if you ask me that is the most important thing I look for when I'm reading a book. I want to have characters I connect with and care about - even if I don't agree with the decisions they make or their actions.

Abby has moved across the country with her best friend America wanting to start a new life where nobody knows about her past. She is determined to be the good girl, the one who works hard, finishes her homework and doesn't spend her time going out partying. The last thing she expects or wants is to attract the attention of Travis - the campus bad boy, king of one night stands and boy every girl wants to be with. But with America dating Travis's best friend Shepley they are thrown together socially. Abby has no intention of being another notch on Travis's bed post and is determined to remain immune to his charms but Travis isn't used to being turned down. The very fact that Abby tries to resist him makes him want her even more and when a bet ends up forcing them to spend more and more time together sparks are bound to fly.

I don't want to say too much about the story line because this is a very character driven novel, in fact until towards the end of the book the focus is very much on the developing friendship between Travis and Abby.

When I read the blurb for this I must admit I didn't think it was for me. Good girl meets bad boy at University blah blah so I was thinking it must be a young adult book about frat boys. But then I saw the warning "For Mature Readers" and this intrigued me. It was a cheap download and had also had some good recommendations so I thought "why not?". Oh boy am I glad I did! I could not put this down - I was hooked from the first paragraph to the last word. It was what I like to call one of my "flip flop" books. You know that feeling you get in the pit of your stomach when you know something fantastic is happening. Abby (Pidgeon) and Travis were just so believable, enthralling and raw! It was wonderfully written and takes you on the roller coaster ride of what is their relationship. It also kept you guessing and no way could you predict what was going to happen next. In fact at certain points in the book I just didn't want to read next as I kept thinking something bad is going to happen, it's going to leave me heartbroken. I was not disappointed with this book at any point and shall never again judge a book by it's blurb. Absolutely fabulous. One of my all time top reads. I want more Ms McGuire!

I have had this book sitting on my kindle for months and to my shame , I have just skipped past it.
Finally I perched myself on the sofa and started to read - and what a fabulous read it was - OMG - Travis what a man!!
Loved it- Ms McGuire I am so sorry it has taken me so long to get around to reading your novels but i must say I am converted - you are a genius!!
Mr Maddox it was an absolute pleasure to spend a few hours in your company - you made me laugh, you made me cry but most of all you made me smile !!

First class piece of writing - BRAVO!!!!!

This book has been on my TBR list for what feels like forever and it has taken me forever to get to but I DID IT!!! and O.M.G am I glad I have finally read it. It isn't often that I fall incredibly hard for characters however Travis Maddox, I just don't have the right words for him. He is everything you search for in a bff and he never seems to let you down. He isn't the only reason I absolutely adored this book but he is a major part of that. It didn't take me long at all to get into this book and I think even before chapter 2 I was in love with the book and its characters. I absolutely LOVE Jamie's writing and her story telling, it makes you feel like you are a part of the book and right there with the characters- saying that there were many times I found myself shouting at the pages, for many reasons. I love Pidge and Travis's chemistry and their banter. The friendship that builds is amazing and even through the ups and downs in the book its always there and it just gets better as the story unfolds. In all honesty there isn't anything in the book that I didn't enjoy and I am quite happily moving on to the next book :)
