Beautiful Disaster
Annnnnd I’m obsessed again. This is getting a little embarrassing :roll:  I’m halfway through the book, and I’m already antsy about it being almost over. What am I going to do when there’s no more Travis? How am I going to ever look at another bad boy again? It seems each time I find another one of these “bad boy” books, I think to myself, “this one can’t be beat”, and then boom!!! I find another badder and hotter then then the last. Hotter than Brian of Rock Me? Hrmmm… okay, no.

Almost as hot, yes. And here’s why I say almost. Travis (the “hero” – and I’m using that term lightly here) is quite something – sexy (tattooed? but of course!), strong (he’s an unbeatable street fighter/sorta UFC fighter)  intense, and emotionally addictive. But… a little scary. In the head.

So while Brian still rules my “bad boy” world, I’m currently hooked on Travis!! I just can’t get enough of him.

Oh for sure… he’s a total player (the absolute worst of them all, so far). He is arrogantly obnoxious, wants to fight everyone that just look at him wrong, destroys his apartment like a rockstar tears apart a hotel room, but deep down?

Wow. He has made me *sorta* cry twice. Halfway through folks, and I know it’s gonna get bad.

So far my only two complaints, is at times this book feels a tad “YA’ish” (young adult) with certain issues that concern them. And again. In “reality” Travis is scary. The run away from his as fast as you can, or pay the consequences later if you ever decide you want to…

But this isn’t reality, now is it? And I’m just gonna “go with it”. Have fun with it. Whether I know better or not in real life, it’s always fun to let go a little, and a portion of my brain is telling my “logical” portion to sit down – stop alerting with the red flags. Just be quiet, cause she’s loving this story, and logical Maryse is bein’ a buzzkill.
