Beautiful Disaster – Jamie Mcguire
File: PDF, 1.69 MB
Beautiful disaster is based on a story between two main characters, Travis and Abby. This takes place over 2 semesters at college. Travis is a manwhore student, one of those nasty, jealous, possessive, violent guys who earns his money by bare knuckle fighting. He treats women terribly – very much wish you thank you ma’am and kick her out the door 2 seconds later.
The story opens up at night in the basement of an empty academic building on a college campus where a betting ring known as The Circle is being run. This is where Travis ‘Mad Dog’ Maddox, the male romantic lead wins his fight. The female lead, Abby, is attending the fight club for the first time that night. She ends up with blood on her cashmere sweater and a new name given to her by Travis, who doesn’t even bother to ask for her name before arbitrarily deciding on ‘Pigeon.’ Abby has a past she wants to escape – her Father was a successful poker player whose luck ran out when Abby turned 13 and so he hates her now! Initially resistive, Travis manages to trick 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.
So, in short, it’s a Beautiful Disaster, because even though their relationship was, well, a Disaster, it was still Beautiful, Travis being the best version of himself he could be when he was with Abby, wanting to be the right guy and making the right choices, and Abby learning to take chances and also learning that sometimes life has other plans for you, and that this plans are often the best choice.
