Beautiful Disaster - Jamie McGuire ★★★★

Tattoos, underground fight clubs and being the one that can change a man is every girls dream. Abby Abernathy is just another ordinary girl; until she goes to a underground fight club one evening and comes face to face with Travis "Mad Dog" Maddox. From that first moment, Travis is interested in her, but she wants nothing to do with him. One little bet changes everything, causing Travis to go against every reputation he has and Abby becoming who every girl wants to be.

I gave Beautiful Disaster 4 starts, because by page roughly page 22, I already had a book crush on Travis. Once you get a book crush, the ratings automatically go up. He seemed "perfect" with the tattoos, the boxing (I thought of Tyler Durden :::swoon:::), he says the right things and even wears his pants in that OMG! way. Then he goes and screws it up a few times. Mainly by bringing some girl back to the apartment and also ending up being a vagina. He seemed way to clingy and totally dependent on Abby. For being this big tough hot shot, he seemed a little desperate for Abby. It was a little annoying. Man up! But in the end, I still have my book crush on Travis.

My only other comment...where the heck were the authorities? Cops never seemed to be around and I must say, you would think cops/campus security/The Dean would step in when someone is punching someones face in at the schools cafeteria. A few things just seemed very unrealistic, but the rest of the plot makes up for it.

More than likely, I will read #2. Walking Disaster, even though it is the same exact story just told from Travis' point of view.
