Book Club Friday #21

I have kinda been a reading machine lately. ;) I really love it, and it gives me something to post for y'all on Fridays! :)
 
Linking up with Heather and Katie!
 
 
This week, I'm sharing Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire.
 
SO many of my friends had read this book, and I actually bought it a while back. It was sitting in my kindle library and when I saw that the author tweeted about a movie being in the works, I knew I had to read it immediately!
 
 
Book description from GoodReads:
 
The new Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate percentage of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance between her and 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.  
 
My thoughts:  
 
Oh my God. This book was amazing, and I flew through it in less than 72 hours. All I wanted to do was read it, and had no interest in putting it down. The story of 2 young college kids is captivating, and I found myself rooting for Travis while wondering why I didn't hate him at the same time. It was very conflicting, but I loved it all at the same time.  
 
I gave it 5 out of 5 stars!  
 
Have you read this book before?

I've had this on my list for so long. Recently, I've thought of taking it off because there have been so many reviews of it being horrid. I see quite a few comments in addition to your review though - so I will def have to give this one a chance!
