Publisher's Summary

The new 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 needs—and wants—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.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No, from an adults point of view, the story wasn't engaging. The scenes held no passion other than a vanilla inexperienced tone. The 'fight ring' was a concept that might fascinate a teenager, however an adult wouldn't be interested in this style of behavior.

What will your next listen be?

Not sure

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator was awful, the entire story blurred together with no separation or sensualisation of certain aspects of the book

Any additional comments?

Overall, this book is for teenagers who know nothing of romance as this book is far from giving you the 'aww' that most of us are after.

Where does Beautiful Disaster rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Honestly don't have an order but if i did it would be pretty high up there

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The two main characters Travis and Abby really balance each other out not just with there personalities but with their back stories as well one doesn't out shine the other and i honestly think they fit together perfectly from events like poker night with the brothers (hustlin) which openned up for more stories to thanks giving (which was adorable yet heart smashing) to Abby's trip to the Tattoo shop (Mrs Abby Maddox) the characters fit so perfectly dysfunctional it was like making a peanut butter sandwich stuffing it up and having your mum put it back together and cut the crust off bread for you.
weirdly put but emotions are weird and food is yum
