As a book addicted, I'm gonna make a review of some books that I read, and post it biweekly at wednesdays.
You'll see a lot of romance books, cause at the moment is what I'm reading the most. I'l start with one of my favorites.
This is going to be my first book review so I hope you like it and feel free to ask or comment about. I'll rate the books in a scale of 1 to 5 stars.
And without further due, here's the review of .....
Book Title: Beautiful Disaster
Author: Jamie McGuire
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Book description: 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.
Review : This is a 4 stars book for me. Once I read the book description I was caught. I had to have this books. Good choice on my part.
This storyline is realistic which says a lot because I'm not into romance books that doesn't seem that it could actually happen in real life. They are both in college and we both know a lot happens in college!!
As it's said in the book description Travis is a no-commitment kind of a guy. He probably slept with 90% of the girls in Eastern University. Abby is a girl with a secret, and she's trying to run from her past (and the person from it) so she moved to another state to move on with her life. I don't think that Abby secret is that a big of a secret but it sure does good thinks to the plot.
Travis and Abby met at one of Travis' fights. He's intriguied with her and she sure doesn't want to end up in bed with him. I think that in the begining Travis sees Abby as a challenge even when he said he doesn't.
There's character development in the book, you see Abby change from a think-first-act-later kind of a person to a act-first-think-later. Travis is the most unstable character, he overreacts a lot a his behaviour is sometime, quite frankly, scary. You start to understanting the whys. I swear that sometimes I wanted to kick Travis in the @$$ and put some sense in his head
The secondary characaters are really good and I really, really like Abby's best friend America. I think that she's the only normal person in the book and she's undoubtedly my favorite character.
I didn't quite like how it ends because I think is the less realistic part in this whole book but it was nonetheless cute.
It's a must read. I truly recommend this book.
Hope you like it
