Beautiful Disaster...

Beautiful Disaster
By: Jamie McGuire

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 America, 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 charming college co-ed. Intrigued by Abby’s resistance to his charms, 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’ apartment for the same amount of time. Either way, Travis has no idea that he has met his match.

I have been such a romance novel book nerd lately. This one was a little different, in that it wasn't racy & didn't require a glass of Moscato to read it. I really enjoyed this book. It was different than I thought it would be. Lots of twists & turns. For anyone wanting to get away from the normal, trashy novels, check this one out. It is a well written breath of fresh air...two thumbs up!!

Bared to You: A Crossfire Novel...

Bared to you
by: Sylvia Day Book Description:

He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I'd never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily... 

Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other's most private worlds...and desires.

The bonds of his love transformed me, even as I prayed that the torment of our pasts didn't tear us apart...

I read this book as soon as I finished the Fifty Shades Trilogy. There were alot of similarities between this book & Fifty Shades of Grey. In my opinion, this book was written a little better. There was more dialog and less raunchy love scenes. If you love racy, romance novels, this one should be on your list to read. I am going to check out more of Ms. Day's books next!! 

From what I understand, this series will also be a trilogy. The next book, Deeper Into You, is set for release in October of this year.
