Inspired Reading: Beautiful Disaster

Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful, #1)Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

At first glance, Beautiful Disaster appears to be your typical good girl/bad boy romance. However, Abby Abernathy and Travis Maddox are deliciously complex characters. At times, Abby’s willful denial of reality is extremely frustrating. I had the same urge to hit her upside the head that I did when Bella strung Jacob along in the Twilight series, insisting they were “just friends.” Things only become more complicated as Abby and Travis’ relationship progress. But I found myself involuntarily sucked into their story. It brought back all the intensity, vulnerability, magic, and desperate longing of first love. Abby and Travis’ passion for one another is beautiful and leads to a string of disastrous consequences. Jamie McGuire crafts a tale full of hope, redemption, and self-acceptance. In my experience, it’s nearly impossible for young love to last, but like me, readers will root for Abby and Travis, and believe that maybe these two can work it out–dysfunctional as they each may be.

Thank you NetGalley for this e-read!
