Beautiful Disaster

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Jamie McGuire

Narrated By: Emma Galvin

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Date: July 2012

Duration: 10 hours 31 minutes


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.

    Fun story that kept me listening..couldn’t help but fall a little in love with Travis myself. The only thing I wished for was more electric love scenes..the kind you’d expect from a fella like Travis. Excellent narration. Definitely looking forward to more.

  • Catherine F.

    Enemies to lovers. It was a good enough read if you like the trope, which I do.

  • Amanda S.

    I couldn’t put this down. The writer is very vivid and definitely defines the characters well. The only reason I give it 4 stars is the love scenes. They weren’t that intriguing. The narrator did a great job with switching from one character to the next. Im going right now to get another Jamie McGuire audio.
