Beautiful Disaster

Beautiful Disaster
By: Jamie McGuire

Outer back cover: GOOD GIRL - Abby Abernathy doesn't drink or swear and she works hard. Abby believes she has buried her dark past, but when she arrives at college, her dreams of a new beginning are quickly challeneged by the university's walking one-night stand.
BAD BOY - Travis Maddox, sexy, built, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby needs - and wants - to avoid. He spends his nights winning money in a floating fight club, and his days as the notorious college Lothario.
IMMINENT DISASTER? - Intrigued by Abby's resistance to his charms, Travis tricks her into his life with a simple bet. If he loses, he must remain celibate for a month. If Abby loses, she must live in Travis's apartment for the same amount of time.
OR THE START OF SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL? - Either way, Travis has no idea that he has met his match. Or that this is the start of an obsessive, intense relationship that will lead them both into imaginable territory...

No, just no. After reading it I think the picture on the cover is quite apt, but it's not a ""healthy" read.

The relationship between Abby and Travis is written to make the readers want it as well, when really, if someone finds themselves in a situation like that they should get a restraining order! The only "sane" person in the book is looked at as a bitch, someone no one wants to listen to.

Saying that, some relationships are like described in the book, which is sad, and of course the people in said relationship doesn't want to listen to anyone else, but they are unhealthy relationships and I don't think they should be promoted as something good! Sure, it's fiction and a bad boy can be tempting, but there has to be a limit.

Usually after I read a book with a relationship I want part of that relationship for myself, this time, I hope I never find myself in a relationship like that!

Not only was the relationship bad, the story itself was very mediocre.

I will not be keeping this book.
