A New York Times and USA TODAY bestseller about a good girl dangerously drawn to the ultimate bad boy. 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.… (mais)

Not only did I dislike the story, I felt the writing was weak and relied too heavily on cliches ("He was afraid of nothing. Until he'd met me...I had become his weakness.")

But far, far worse than this was the message -- loud and clear and repeated over and over again from pages 366-416 -- that:
1. A woman is nothing until she belongs to a man, ESPECIALLY not unless she says it while she's having sex with this man, who happens to be the only man she's EVER had sex with (while he's been free to sow his oats).
2. The goal of sex is marriage. Pages 369-416 confirm this awful, restrictive, hopelessly antique view, with the end of the book being absolutely fixated on it. This wouldn't be so bad -- I have nothing against marriage -- were it not for the rather grim message that marriage expressly confers ownership rights on another human being. Ugh.

All in all, this hugely popular book (among the female aged 18-25 set) represents a giant leap backward. Wa-a-a-y-y-y back. ( )

Really not a fan of this book. Main character is a virgin, love interest is an emotionally damaged player/bad boy who beats the crap out of just about everyone who talks to main character. If they weren't both really possessive and crazy, it would be an abusive relationship. Really, they're impulsive and unbelievable. Not even any redeeming sexual chemistry/sex scenes. Good thing the book is short! ( )

This book crops up on so many best of romance novel lists and finally I got to it.

Wow, I thought, this is yet another Romance sub-genre for me - one I haven't come across before. Perhaps it is because I haven't read many that are classified as Young Adult yet.

I found the dilemma that Abby faces very real - the blurred line between friendship and intimacy. Wanting to protect the former, yet plenty of yearning for the latter. Travis's attempts at change and his powerless when riled - not characters I'll forget too soon.

Of course, being romance, innate forces overtake thought-out plans in who will suit you as a partner - at least for Abby.

The writing allowed you right inside the characters - it was excellent - and the audiobook narrator matched this: Emma Galvin.

At 10.5 hours, it's a little over my ideal of about 9 hours max, and as I was listening a couple of minor side trips struck me as superfluous or strung out.

Four stars because everything about this was fresh to me.

Have just looked at the reviews below and it is gratifying to see my points reiterated. I appreciate all who have left their comments. It's as close as I get to talking books with anyone! ( )

I did like the first part of the book before time expired on the bet. I try to stay away from Young Adult books but I saw this listed in the adult department so I thought I was safe. But, I think I'm too old to appreciate this book. I would hate to have a guy act this way with me. I'm not interested in the sequel and I sold this autographed copy back to amazon.com immediately.

When Abby met Travis, a smoking, gambling, fighter with a bad reputation, he was exactly the sort of boy she was trying to avoid. Yet somehow he was the exact boy she could not seem to get away from. Despite her best efforts Abby was falling for Travis, but with her stubbornness and his determination this relationship was never going to run smoothly.

Beautiful Disaster is entirely Abby's point of view of her volatile yet passionate relationship with Travis, a relationship that is at times the equivalent of a train wreck. Watching, or reading, this mishap called love is scary crazy and yet you can not turn away from the disaster that is Abby and Travis. A roller coaster of a book that fully lives up to its title. ( )
