Warning If you re easily offended by cursing, and or aggressivity, then don t FUCKING read this I am literally losing it.This book contains one of the most disturbing scenes I have ever read in any book EVER.So here s one excerpt from the book Abby slept with Travis and left his apartment in the morning without saying goodbye This is his reaction, a few hours later Travis is a fucking wreck He won t talk to us, he s trashed theapartment, threw the stereo across the room Shep roommate can t talk [...]
DELETED AND READDED BECAUSE SOMEONE HAD IT BURIEDBeautiful Disaster opens up at night in the basement of an empty academic building on a college campus where a fighting betting ring known as The Circle is being run This is where we meet Travis Mad Dog Maddox, the male romantic lead He, of course, wins his fight The female lead, Abby, is attending the fight club for the first time that night She ends up with blood on her cashmere sweater and a new name given to her by Travis, who doesn t even bot [...]
.4 22 16 Edited to add spoiler tag didn t realize I never checked it 4 years ago.02 25 12 Now that I ve read this book twice, I can say absolutely without a doubt that I hate it It wasn t me being stupid and not realizing how great a book was until the second reading, like it was the first time I read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer s Stone and Milkweed It really is just an awful book.Every single character in this book is an absolute idiot with the exception of Kara, who is the only character wit [...]
I m not sure what to write about this book The reviews for the book were SOOO incredibly misleading I thought Travis was going to hit her, or come close, the way everyone was going on about the abuse in the book I get it, it was intense But having seen real abuse with my own eyes, in real lifeI didnt understand what everyone else saw that made it be worse and stand apart from all other books.This is a book about an alpha male Just because it s not a paranormal book and instead, a contemporary, i [...]
WowTravis, Travis, Travis I liked him, I hated him, I liked him againI worried about his sanityen I loved him And, oddly enough, I had a lot of the same feelings about Abby So many times I wanted to scream at her, then him, then her again Great, complex characters I loved this Wonderful story, wonderful world, wonderful author

This book is a nightmare It s as if Jamie McGuire reached into my brain, found my worst nightmare, wrote it down, and then charged me 13.99 to relive it But that s not all I read this book on an 8 hour flight from London to Toronto This book and I spent 8 hours together, in coach seating, with nothing to do but surrender to the impossibility of an escape There was nowhere to run and nowhere to hide, as this book stared up at me, begging to be read Give me a chance, it said Just because my author [...]
Nope Can t do it It s just too horrible I ve reached my max saturation point of stupidity.
5 stars with a caveat, and by far my most difficult review to write to date.I m honestly baffled by my response to this book because I not only enjoyed the story, but I also gave it high marks In many ways this book is everything I hate in a Young Adult romance, but I still found myself enthralled, giddy, and starry eyed, regardless of how annoyed I became at time In fact, I felt like I was at odds with myself during most of it There was my latent teenage self, all starry eyed and idealistic, wh [...]
I haven t been this pissed off reading a book since Bad Romeo Beautiful Disaster was a cluster eff of a read managing to throw everything I hate in a book into one novel.My first issue with this book are the characters Our leading lady is Abby Abernathy Then there s our leading man Travis Maddox I can capture my feels for both of them at the same time I HATE THEM I CAN T STAND THEM Actually that really undersells how I feel towards them but whatever Abby is DUMB there is no other word I can use [...]
I read this book right after shameless plug I wrote my first book, Slammed Speaking of Slammed, who do you think would win in a fist fight between Travis Maddox and poetry teacher, Will Cooper Haha HAHAHAHA BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Let s look on the bright side Will Cooper would write a really kick ass poem about his hospital stay.
Jamie McGuire s Beautiful Disaster is the worst adult contemporary romance novel I ve had the displeasure of reading I m imagining I ve raised a few eyebrows with beginning this review on that note You might be thinking Well, aren t you being a little melodramatic, Rose It s just a book it can t possibly be that bad, right exhales slowly Let me state for the record I m a person who likes reading many different kinds of romances because I m an avid reader and genres know no bounds with me, for th [...]
This book isn t beautiful, it s just a complete disaster Travis is psychotic, abusive, and overprotective I cannot believe shit like this gets published.
Jamie McGuire Putting the woman s movement back 200 years D It saddens me that someone from my own gender is writing such shallow and mindless dribble I know the economy is bad, but damn have some pride If you were able to get through this book without throwing up I have to applaud you I had to stop reading at page 225 because I was becoming physically ill It wasn t the subject that sickened me, it was HOW the subject was being written The characters and their reaction to Travis obsessive behavi [...]
I rarely review books unless the author is a friend of mine However, I thought I d say something about this one I put off reading this because I d read the reviews and the ones that complained about the editing issues worried me I don t like reading a book for enjoyment and find myself mentally editing it the entire time OMG, I am so glad I gave in and read it It s insanely good Yes, there are errors but honestly I was so wrapped up in the story I didn t care It is really edgy and I wouldn t cal [...]
My Review on Walking Disaster No Spoilers The book Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire has been all around the Blogosphere lately It became available on Netgalley and many bloggers are currently reading it This book has caused many controversy and has earned some really nasty reviews, still, the book has an average rating of 4.13 I recently stumbled upon a review that said very very no so nice things about Beautiful Disaster, and it also mentioned that everyone that rated this book with 5 stars [...]
I read this because it tops so many lists here on and I wanted to see what the hype is about but it sadly didn t even begin to live up to my expectations I actually believe this may be the worst book I have ever read The characters are poorly developed, the writing style just appalling, I never really understood their motivations and the narrative never gave them time to react to situations This felt like it had been written by a twelve year old to me.This takes place over 2 semesters at college [...]
I need to hear you say it I need to know you re mine I ve been yours since the second we met ooooo sigh what can I say about this book except that its reeeeally good, HIGHLY addictive and utterly captivating You literally feelcompelledto keep turning the pages You just can t stop No joke Abby and Travis meet in college He s a tough, charming, insanely hot, tattooed badboy who also is a womanizing A student who fights in a ring at night and once he meets Abby, he s just captivated by her Abby is [...]
WARNING THIS BOOK IS LIKE CRACK Because you feel like such shit for reading it, but you can t stop yourself from reading it anyway There were typos than I could count, the dialogue is just so cheesy it s cringe worthy, the boy is such a Gary Sue, BUToh my Lord I could NOT stop myself I was so grossed out by myself for liking it, my boyfriend was grossed out by me liking it, but I couldn t pull myself away The IssuesThe boy is a character OBVIOUSLY conjured by a woman and a HUGE Gary Sue He s a [...]
I know we re fucked up, all right I m impulsive, and hot tempered, and you get under my skin like no one else You act like you hate me one minute, and then you need me the next I never get anything right, and i don t deserve you but i fucking love you, Abby I love you than I ve loved anyone or anything, ever When you re around, I don t need booze, or money, or the fighting, or the one night stands all I need is you You re all think about You re all I dream about You re all I want.okay, well i u [...]
I have a little dilemma with reviewing indie books On one hand, I get it why authors might prefer to go down the self publishing road With an industry that gives us Halo and Hades, I d be disheartened too The thing is, indie writers face a lot of difficulties getting their stuff out there and making a profit, because the general assumption is that self pubbed books are poorly written, poorly edited things that no agent wanted to take on So I was very conflicted about reviewing this book.EDITBut [...]
I think this is my favorite book I m still book hangovered Where should I begin Ummm , yeah Travis I belong to my beloved, and my beloved is mine I loved him , many people may consider him as immature but his will for love was unbelievable Travis is fighting illegally ,he is hot , he has tattoos and all the girls want to f ck with him I wonder why innocent eyes AbbyShe was just an innocent girl who fell for someone that reminded her , her past.She bet with Travis and this gave an interesting twi [...]
Now that I have officially joined the Kindle army, I felt that it was an appropriate time to start checking out the burgeoning e book and self published market Only a fool would underestimate the growing power and influence of the e book market in relation to mainstream publishing and I ve noticed several particular books coming up time and time again amongst both my GoodReads friends and the book blogging scene in general This book is one of them I d be lying if I said that I ever thought this [...]
Travis Maddoxwell if that name doesn t make you fangirl, I don t know what does Thanks to my mother who recommended me this book, otherwise I never would ve picked this book up I went into this book blind because I heard a lot of mixed reviews about it so I didn t know what to really expect when I read this book I really really liked it That s pretty much all I can say There was nothing I didn t like about it I like a hero that s possessive and gets jealous because ultimately it means that the h [...]
And another one bites the dust.
Update December 2011 original rating dropped I realized after much thought that the ending really bothered me I wish view spoiler the author had worked in an ending that would have appeased both those who wanted the relationship to die, and those who wanted the relationship to succeed, in such a way that would have been responsible Perhaps some therapy would have been in order hide spoiler Review revised to add a warning You may cringe at the ridiculous amount of nickname usage in the book.Beaut [...]
I can t really be bothered to write my usual style of review I m the last person on the planet to read it, so summarizing the plot just seems a waste of time Instead, I m going to skip straight to my criticism.First off, if you don t like first person narration, this is not the book that will change your mind It uses the device particularly poorly Our narrator, the heroine, at times has too much insight into the minds of others and at other times has too little knowledge of her own mind None of [...]
