Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire REVIEW

Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire

bought


Synopsis from Goodreads
The new Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate percentage of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance between her and the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend America, 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 needs—and wants—to avoid. He spends his nights winning money in a floating fight ring, and his days as the charming college co-ed. Intrigued by Abby’s resistance to his charms, 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’ apartment for the same amount of time. Either way, Travis has no idea that he has met his match.

Dear fans, please don't throw rotten tomatoes at me, but I disliked this book immensely.


The name for once is apt. The relationship portrayed in the book is a disaster of major proportions. It's a trainwreck, it's something that your mom keeps telling you might happen if you don't listen to her, and frankly I will be surprised if there is a book #2 because Travis and Abby have no future together.

She is blind and madly in love, he is obsessive, has major anger-management issues and is extremely volatile. Yet they get married at nineteen. In Vegas. After a great row and big reconciliation. *double facepalm* 

This song is all I could think about when I was reading this book...




So, if you are in the mood for lots of sex, plenty of screaming and drama blown out of proportions, if you like a trainwreck, you will be alright reading this book. Me? It just made me incredibly angry.

I can believe that Abby and Travis can be happy, but I would have believed it more if they spent 10 years in separation, grew up and learnt from their mistakes first before getting back together... :) 


One thing I loved though is Abby's part in Vegas, although I felt that it was cut too short.

Ахаха, эта книга довела меня до белого каления! И проблема её в том, что я совершенно не вижу как отношения Эбби и Трэвиса могут работать? Как они могут быть счастливы?


Она - дурёха в розовых очках, он ужасно ревнивый, столкер, взрывной и вспыльчивый.
В книге много секса, постоянных ссор и драм, раздутых до невозможности, от которых просто устаёшь. После очередного скандала голубки ещё к тому же решают сбежать в Вегас и пожениться. В 19 лет.


Единственная интересная деталь - это способности Абби профессионально чистить клиентов в казино, благодаря её талантливой карточной игре. Всё остальное мне было читать больно. 


Я знаю, что многие читательницы от этой книги были в восторге, но уж точно не я. Я бы больше поверила в хэппи-энд для этой пары, если бы они расстались и встретились через 10 лет, повзрослевшие и наученные опытом. То, какие они сейчас? Как говорил Станиславский "не верю". Я не вижу как такие отношения могут сработать...


4/10

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
