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. Warning If you re easily offended by cursing andor aggressivity then don t FUCKING read this I am literally losing it This book contains one of the most disturbing scenes I have ever read in any book EVERSo here s one excerpt from the book Abby slept with Travis and left his apartment in the morning without saying goodbye This is his reaction a few hours later Travis is a fucking wreck He won t talk to us he s trashed the apartment threw the stereo across the room Shep roommate can t talk any sense into him He took a swing at Shep when he found out we helped you leave Abby It s scaring me Abby he s gone fucking nuts I heard him call your name and then he stomped all over the apartment looking for you He barged into Shep s room demanding to know where you were Then he tried to call you Over and over and over she sighed His face was Jesus Abby I ve never seen him like that He ripped his sheets off the bed and threw them away threw his pillows away shattered his mirror with his fist kicked his door broke it from the hinges It was the scariest thing I ve ever seen in my life THIS IS NOT OKAYIt s not okay it s not okay it s not okay it s NOT NORMAL BEHAVIOR A few lines later Abby calls him and everything s back to normal NO I M SORRY BUT NO YOU NEED TO STAY THE FUCK AWAY FROM HIM Stalker A person obsessed with another to the point of insanity IE following one everywhere calling constantly showing signs of irrational sick and unhealthy behavior that can sometimes lead to extreme violence It drives me insane to see how stalkerish behavior is considered as hot This book is really really disturbing and I don t understand how it could get published I got til chapter 9 and basically I can t take it any The guy Travis suffers from very very VERY serious problems that should lead him straight into a shrink s office if not prison I m serious Hey you girls out there who gave that book 5 stars saying you want a Travis in your lives in WHAT language do we have to tell you it s NOT normal behavior And thank God that you haven t met a guy like him because then that would be fucking dramatic Don t you understand how pathetic it is all this characterization into unrealistic hyper sexualized robotic male figures These stories are all the fucking same The guy is drop dead gorgeous he s dangerous he s sexy he wants you even if you re plain like hell and what he feels for you goes beyond words Edward Cullen Christian Grey Patch Cipriano Kellan Kyle Travis Maddox Damen Auguste or Dimitri Belikov they re all the same Girls NO ONE is going to want to watch you sleep or forbid you to go visit your friends or try to kill you because they love you so fucking much because that s not what NORMAL people do If you ever have the misfortune to get involved with someone like that GO FILE A FUCKING RESTRAINING ORDER already I find it appalling that young girls actually read this thinking this is exactly how they want to be treated like someday We re not pets No fucking one in the world should be allowed to force you into behaving like a child And I m also thinking about boys they re not exactly the target audience but still reading this must lead to wonder if this kind of behavior is what chicks like It just spreads some sort of sickening message be aggressive show your jealousy as well as the fact that she s yours have no limits be in control use your strength to make a point don t let her do what she wants because she doesn t really know what s good for her You know better It s so hard to be a teenager to try to find who you truly are fiction that is destined to be read by young people has some kind of role it should set examples instead of showing dysfunctional and extreme codependent relationships like they re normal because they re notHey YOUNG ADULTS That means you re becoming a damn citizen that you ll study get to vote graduate get a job and make a living How could you ever want someone to be that intrusive To go as far as breaking your car down so you can t visit a friend yes Edward fucking Cullen I m talking about you because YOU STARTED ALL THISDon t you realize it s an offense to your FREEDOM when a guy s literally forbidding you to get out of his house even after you ve asked him to let you go When he s dragging you out of the car because you re making out with someone all this when you re not even involved with him When he s making you feel like shit because you re seeing someone else In fact I won t even get started on all the stupid reactions of Abby What kind of girl dates a sweet guy and then goes sleeping in another man s bed every night when she HAS a choice She s just a stupid lying and masochist teaseThen she encourages Travis to beat the shit out of someone in the middle of the cafeteria Seriously Just because someone whistles at her or something she says like Teach him some manners and Travis throws himself on the man Jesus HONESTLY are you a beast or something The poor guy ends up curled up in fetal position covered in blood and unable to move WTF How can you stand this No really how can you read this How can you accept it Where is your sense of civility or your instinct of protection towards the human kind How come no one in the cafeteria stands up and tries to stop this Easy answer Because everyone is fucking terrified to get hurt Like that s normalIt scares the shit out of me to see that some people are able to read such violence and yet remain flippant and oh so casual like it s no big deal It makes me wonder if they ever witness a real beat up would they react Would they care Or has modern entertainment succeeded in making all forms of abuse look so cavalier that it doesn t shock anyone anyTravis kept opening the door when Abby was with her date on the porch late at night or coming in the bathroom when she was taking a shower refusing to get out and generally being so nosy it was a shocking wonder how NO ONE told him to fuck off And that bitch didn t even say ANYTHING It s so genuinely dangerous when a guy s emotionally abusingblackmailing you or yelling at you for not obeying him or trying to manipulate you It is BUT romantic I don t give a damn whether the guy s a vampire or an angel or a fucking rock star or if it was a bet or not it s just NOT okayHow could violence keep being depicted as something acceptable let alone romantic They re at a party and he hits a boy who TOUCHES her ARM Honestly It s not a game And she keeps forgiving him every single timeHow do you think real abusive relationships start What do you think are the profiles of the men who end up beating up their wives andor showing extreme paranoiac behavior Did you just look at that guy Did you fuck him Are you cheating on me Don t you lie to me bitch I can see it in your eyes This is how it ends people You just wait a couple of years Abby Just wait until he loses it AGAIN and ends up taking a fucking swing at youAgain awfully stupid and arrogant Abby stays at Travis s apartment and she sleeps in his bed because she doesn t really have a choice Fine But the guy s bringing chicks in the living room having a big loud threesome And one day later he takes Abby s hand acts all warm and fuzzy saying stuff like You re better than this I m not fucking you like I fuck the rest of em that s why I treat you different don t you ever get near boys or I swear I ll destroy them He even says I ll end up in prison if I hear you slept with someone else When you read something like that your fucking alarm must spark off I don t know what to say any because honestly I feel like I shouldn t even have to say all this in the first place This should be like SURVIVAL INSTINCT What is this message that s conveyed Should we girls be standing on the corner watching our love interest that pretendedly loves us fuck his brains out with the whole planet and calmly stating I can deal with his behavior because well he s really hot Or because he s so romantic that he managed to nickname her after the most stupid volatile on earth aka PidgeonNO FUCK NO Why would you want to lock yourself up in some scary relationship where in the end you just lose everything your independence as well as your right to have a life that doesn t exclusively revolves around him Why would you want to give up your liberty as an individual in order to be so tied up with your love interest that you can t even breathe on your own And for those who pretendedly realized that it wasn t healthy but yet managed to like the book anyway why would you want to witness such a relationship What s the pleasure in contemplating two people who never ever realize how deep they ve fallen into violence and abuse EDIT I don t care whether Travis supposedly changes at the end of the book I don t care for his pseudo redemption andor efforts What matters are the facts here and now that Abby acknowledges them while they re horrible and still manages to stay with Travis I couldn t finish the fucking book because I was feeling sick to my stomach and I insist on saying the characterization of the love story was goddamn awful and should never be seen as something okay So do you honestly think I care when you say I should have finished it before writing all this Give me a fucking break I have witnessed abusive relationships in real life this book depicts the beginning of one and the memories alone are enough to make me wanna puke I sure as hell won t force myself to undergo the whole 400 pages Besides I read on some reviews that spoilers At some point he won t let her get out of the apartment because he thinks her clothes aren t appropriate enough Therefore he forces her to change Okay May I send you back to the This is not okay behavior part of the review They get married at Las Vegas at 19 That after him getting an Abby tattoo she gets one too that reads Mrs Maddox I d like to talk about this for a second I m a firm believer that you can love someone in an unconditional way without having to show it with material proofs Marriage and tattoos What is this Travis unexpectedly got an Abby tattoo without warning her without considering the conseuences of such an act but I guess I m asking too much from him considering he s got tribal tattoos all over his body Anyway Travis emotionally challenged her and so she got one too Again what is this A leash that she will never ever be able to free herself from What if their relationship doesn t last What if they get a divorce Basically until the day she dies she will look at her skin and remember that at some point in her life she chose to mark herself not as a person but as a wife As someone s something And that s just terrible So Breathe In my humble opinion I think it is better that I just don t finish it Like everI m writing all this because I feel so MAD about this book Women fought and still fight every day so we can be treated as euals and not as objects I m not going to sit still and pretend this book didn t horrify me Because it did It fucking did big timeAlso believe it or not but I m not doing this to tear the author down I don t really care about her my review isn t about her but about the book It s nothing personal I respect her as a human being I just feel very sorry for the messages she conveys through this everything but Beautiful Disaster EDIT 2 Yeah so About that There seems to be some kind of Reviewers VS Authors movement here on Goodreads but also on Twitter etc Since the author of Beautiful Disaster made me be a part of it I ve decided to join here two links The first one is a blog post written by author Hannah Moskowvitz Check it out it s really good Second one written by Nafiza on her blog And I have one thing to say you go girl EDIT 3 One because McGuire just doesn t know how to let it go EDIT 4 Yes I know this is way too long already but I wanted to add something For the trolls who ve been telling me for the past fucking year that this is just fiction not only do you come off as stupidly paradoxical for being on Goodreads in the first place because it s a website for people who feel passionate about books but you re also wrong When you read a book for entertainment purposes only you re relaxed and receptive almost vulnerable as unconsciously you assume that what you re reading is okay and right otherwise it wouldn t be published would it Therefore you don t really pay attention to the real meaning behind what you re reading After all It s just a book right Wrong Sometimes you have to wake up and realize that what you re reading is in reality a dangerous stinking piece of shit Yes it s a book but young girls read this and unconsciously absorb the messages that are being sent and then it has an impact on the way they carry out their personal lives without even realizing that stupid books like this one contributed to giving her a black eye and pushing her down the stairs Because they ve been reading about that hot behavior for so long they ve been sexualizing it and they ve been associating it with good looks and of course with the ultimate perfect happy ending In reality it doesn t work like that You can t change someone who s damaged and unstable just because you love them no matter what the books try to tell you Don t waste your time trying And the fact that Travis Maddox is described as being extremely hot is a manipulation that tries to trick you into thinking that if it s beautiful then it must be good Think about that a weird ugly guy who follows you around and destroys his apartment because you didn t pick up your phone wouldn t be hot it d be creepy as fuck And that s what I m asking you now try to think beyond the good looks and the sugarcoating that goes with it that the medias are trying to feed you and just think by yourself By the way it also leads to fucking idiotic bitches who tweet about how they wouldn t mind being beaten up by Chris Brown because he s so hot What the fuck There aren t enough words to say how wrong this is What do I care you say I care because I m a woman and reading this makes me ashamedWake the fuck up girls and never accept being treated like that You are an individual you are important and you matter Your decisions will have impacts You deserve so much better than someone like this Travis fucking asshole Let him go die in a fucking hole and go lead your own life like the independent and free person you are And please destroy the person who will so much as try to tell you otherwise Finally last but not least Due to some comments it feels like it s time to clarify some stuff If this review pissed you off or offended you you should know that I don t give a shit about well what you think If this is about my swearing or my aggressivity you were warned from the very first line and I don t have anything to say to you about it You knew it was a 1 star rating so basically no one forced you to read but yourself Get over it and move on Simple asAnd I know I mentioned the 5 stars ratings girls and all but really it was just semantics don t feel like you should comment my review to express your disagreement or your undying love for Travis cause whatever you say it won t change the way I feel I mean it don t comment Because I don t give a fuck about what you have to say Unless it is interesting of course But if you re here to defend the psychopath and try to explain how in the end the relationship comes full circle or why his unacceptable behavior is only masculine and protective please SAVE YOUR TIME And mine Obviously we won t get along and if you can t understand what I m trying to say then it s fine keep loving Eclipse and Blood Promise and Hush Hush I mean it s cool Honestly I m serious tastes and perceptions and ideals are all different and I don t have a say in this and neither do you So well you can just save your time with the comments And fuck off already Thank you

    5 stars with a caveat and by far my most difficult review to write to dateI’m honestly baffled by my response to this book because I not only enjoyed the story but I also gave it high marks In many ways this book is everything I hate in a Young Adult romance but I still found myself enthralled giddy and starry eyed regardless of how annoy
