BEAUTIFUL DISASTER by Jamie McGuireMY HEART IS FULL OF LOVE!!

The story of Travis and Abby is a great read and is written quite well. Travis – “Maddox” is rough, wild and incredibly sexy. Abby is a good girl trying to put some distance between her current life and her dark past.  What Abby finds with Travis makes for a good love story, but I found that I both loved and hated these characters. Pulling the two together over a “bet” wasn’t as engaging as it could have been. I wasn’t really sure I appreciated their complicated attraction. The sexual tension that builds through the first half of the book is captivating, but I was not fond of how beating someone to a pulp was glamorized. The second half of book is a bit rushed, and I believe portrayed drinking and illegal fight clubs as hip. I can’t decide if their love story was truly beautiful, or like watching something so dysfunctional it is hard to look away. The story gets high marks for strong dialogue and fantastic supporting characters. This always brings life to the main characters. Even though I wasn’t fond of the way Travis and Abby meet, this is quality story-telling with a well-crafted plot. There is a great deal of passion and suspense which ignites interest. I enjoyed my happily ever after ending and will read the retell.
