New York Times Bestseller????? I made it through two chapters and I can’t believe I punished myself for that long. Perhaps I put the book down to soon but I just couldn’t put up with the stupidity of the characters.

A complicated romance novel. When Abby Abernathy meets Travis Maddox, she never expects to fall in love with him, as he’s the complete opposite of her. However, after losing a bet, Abby moves in with Travis for a month. They gradually spend more time together and become more than friends. This book shows how raw love can be, and what sacrifices people make for those they deeply care about. A roller-coaster ride of emotions and exciting surprises throughout!

Travis is officially my new book boyfriend. He is such an annoying character at times ,and he is such an amazing character at times. I fell in love with him. This is a laugh out loud, cry,vent, jaw dropping kind of book. you'll love it!!!

Some people say that is book is not that good. That the story goes from yes to no between Abby and Travis. However, I think this book is just wonderful! Beautiful Disaster is the only book that I can re-read more than once, and I never have gotten bored. I think that this book has a wonderful plot, and is really interesting. Though I do agree that the Abby and Travis shouldn't have taken the whole book to be together, then break up, then be together for about the rest of their life. I personally think that I would like to know something about the wedding, or America point of view about this.

Wasn't what I expected. The book isdialogue driven, which I liked. But I didn't like the type of relationship between Travis and "Pidge". It seemed so unhealthy, and his possessive behaviour turned me off to him. When Pidge was given the opportunity to get out of her bet with him, I think any other rational woman would have left, instead of putting herself through that roller coaster of emotional drama. Halfway through the book the plot picked up after we find out her life story, and why she behaves the way she does. But it wasn't until then that there is any real cohesion. Until then I got so tired of the back forth between the two. GET IT TOGETHER ALREADY is what I kept thinking. Frustrating read at times. But entertaining. Not enough for me to read the second book though.

Two stubborn college students meet at a fight and through a bet end up living together. Slowly Travis and Abby's relationship takes many turns. Fights. Motorcycles. Fires. Romance. This book is for anyone who enjoys a little bit of feisty spice in their reading. Recommended by A.L., Medina Library, MCDL

I sat and read this book in less then a day. It was so addictive. I didn't want to stop. Kind of like these characters., I was hooked! The story itself was great, I found the writing to be a little bit off, but a great read none the less. This story is from Abby's point of view and the next in the series, Beautiful Disaster, is from Travis's view. Two sides to each story - makes for an interesting concept!

I couldnt put this book down! The tension between Abby and Travis will drive you crazy!

A patron review from the Adult Summer Reading Game: "This was the first book in the series and it was hard to put down. You are introduced to the love story of Travis and Abby."

The first book in the Maddox brother series, followed by Walking Disaster which supposedly is this same story but told through Travis' point of view. "Hurts Sooo Good" type of story about Abby, a freshman student at Eastern with a dark past and Travis, also a student at Eastern who made his name by fighting at underground arenas and is the University's Sex God and one-night stand. I enjoyed this story very much and can't wait to read Walking Disaster.
