Unrivaled- Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire

So I’ve read a lot of books. Romances are my norm most of the time. I read fiction, lots of fiction. So the best book I’ve read so far is Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire. I read this book, based on over hundreds of positive reviews that I read online. I'd been looking for a book with a hero just like Travis and imagine my delight with this find. In a store someone might not give it a second glance because of the book cover; it doesn't shout romance and love. I'll admit at first I was reluctant because of the cover but the saying is true, never judge a book by its cover because this book absolutely blew me away. It is a beautiful story. The hero Travis is so tortured but more than that, he loves the heroine so intensely. Now I'm not going to review this book because I know I'll just rattle on and on and possibly ruin the book for possible readers.
          Travis loves her so much it makes him crazy at times. He's so possessive of his "Pigeon". (I've still not really gotten the nickname but i think it's cute nonetheless.) I love this book so much that I'm starting it over again. I love reading romances where the hero is the one thoroughly involved because it seems too many times, that the heroine is the one portrayed weakly and submissive, loving the hero more than he loves her. Travis was a refreshing character out of the sea of very similar ones. He was passionate and well just so intense about Abby that I even fell a bit in love with him too. They face many obstacles but through it all their love for each other remains true.
          This blog post is meant to be short so in sum, check this book out. You'll most definitely love it because I know I did. Another book I recommend is the Fifty Shades series by EL James. But I'll get to that in my next post. It's a keeper just like Beautiful Disaster.

I need to refresh the awesomeness that is this book before I can give a good review so for now I'll link you to other reviews for this amazing story.

**For mature readers. Contains sexual situations and strong language**

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.
