Book Review: Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful Book 1) by Jamie McGuire

Beautiful Book 1
Title: Beautiful Disaster
Author: Jamie McGuire
Series: Beautiful Book 1
Pages: 416
My Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥

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.


Beautiful Disaster has been on my radar for a while, and I was finally able to get my hands on it! I absolutely LOVE Abby and Travis!! Even though they drive each other insane, there is no denying that they are absolutely perfect for each other.

I could personally go on and on about Travis Maddox for hours. He is just as the synopsis says, everything Abby wants and needs to avoid, yet she cannot stay away from him. I don't blame her one bit! There is so much more to the Travis "Mad Dog" Maddox than everyone else sees, and Abby finds herself to be one of the few that he will truly let in. He still is not perfect, by hey, who is?

Throughout the book both Abby and Travis find themselves struggling with their feelings for one another, and this is one emotional roller coaster ride. I never knew how I was going to feel! One moment I loved Travis, then the next he would just piss me off! However, Abby would then turn around and do the same thing! In the end though, you cannot help but root for these characters and hope that they find their idea of happiness!

I cannot wait to crack open the next installment, which is completely from the point of view of Travis himself!

Book Review: Cold Blood (Dirty Blood Book 2) by Heather Hildenbrand

Dirty Blood Series Book 2
Title: Cold Blood
Author: Heather Hildenbrand
Series: Dirty Blood #2
Pages: 366
My Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥

Wood Point Academy is not at all what I expected. For one thing, it looks like a cross between military school and Buckingham Palace. Everyone stares, the floors shine so bright you can see your reflection in them from a mile away, and no one smiles. Unless they're kicking your butt in the process.

At least I've got plenty to take my mind off the fact that my psycho cousin, Miles De'Luca, keeps calling and declaring his love and promising to come for me just as soon as he's destroyed anyone standing in our way. Wes isn't going to like that idea. So between Miles, Wood Point's evil welcoming committee, and the drill sergeant hottie trainer from hell, I just keep asking myself, how did I end up here?


After reading about how Tara was going to be sent to a school for hunters, I thought "okay, this is going to be a filler book." However, I was surprised, and definitely in a good way! I think that attending this school allowed Tara to see exactly what Wes has gone through his entire life. When she walked down the hallway she would get snide comments just thrown at her left and right. Luckily though, she was able to find two misfits that weren't afraid to be her friends. Logan and Cambria certainly were misfits, but they were just what Tara needed!

One thing is for sure, if you doubted the idea of Tara as fighter, then you certainly won't anymore!!! She refused to back down from any fight throughout the book, whether it be with her cute trainer, or a group of feral werewolves. 

Hildenbrand once again did a fantastic job, and I cannot wait to see where the series goes from here! Tara is learning so much more about herself and has some huge decisions to make. At least she will not have to make them alone though, she has a whole bunch of "misfits" that love and support her!

"You catch more fliew with honey, ever heard of that?" He Shrugged.
"I don't like flies. They're annoying." He grinned "I'd rather catch hell." 

"Eww. You guys are talking about the library aren't you?"
"Yeah." I smiled. She wrinkled her nose.
"No thanks. I'm allergic."
