Teaser Tuesday (17): Beautiful Disaster


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.


Here's two teasers (Yes, two. And I'd put more if I could) from Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire. I have a love/hate relationship with this book. I love it, then I hate it, and I love that I hate it. It's causing me so much angst I'm having flashbacks to when I read We'll Always Have Summer...

"It's not funny. Do you want the whole school to think I'm one of your sluts?'

Travis frowned. 'No one thinks that. And if they do, they better hope I don't hear about it." {Beautiful Disaster, Chapter 3}

"You're not jealous, are you, Pigeon?'

'Jealous of what? The STD-infested imbecile you're going to piss off in the morning?" {Beautiful Disaster, Chapter 3}

Goodreads Synopsis of Beautiful Disaster:
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.

  1. I can kind of see why. I can't wait to read this still. I don't get why reputation/popularity is so important at college. at HS maybe, but also in college? seems a bit excessive

    1. True. The main character Abby is a little overly concerned with reputation and what people think of her. But it's still really good!
