Beautiful Disaster - Jamie McGuire


This is the fifth book in my run of new books (see here), and by far the least satisfying I have read so far. This isn't to say it is a bad book (it has 4.2 on Goodreads) but the previous four had been so good that something had to let the team down eventually. 

I picked it up on Amazon fairly cheaply and I read it in a couple of days - it is quite easy going and doesn't deal with particularly hard issues.

In fact, it's basically just about a college girl who falls in love with a bad boy, and then the issues they face with each other. It actually has a ridiculous ending and the story doesn't rally have any real depth to it - it is very much a bad boy love story aimed at teenagers that want to read a slightly dirty book. Anything that could be expanded on to add more is skirted over quite quickly and some events are quite unbelievable. I'm not sure why I picked it up in the first place, but hey ho.

I must reiterate after the above - I'm not saying it's a bad book, it's just doesn't float my boat. That being said, I can see teenage me loving it. It's got a pretty cover too, so I'll give it that.

(Googling shows me this is actually the first of a Fifty Shades of Grey style trio...who knew?)

Have you read this book? What did you think?
