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 was thinking about it a lot, and I think I owe this amazing book a review.

This story was so complex. There is this girl Abby, who has a secret. You don't get to know this secret so easily. And then, there is this boy Travis. He is a badass – he fights, literally.

Everything starts with a bet between them. Abby loose. And she needs to stay for one month at Travis's place. And everything begins.

Abby meets a guy – Parker – which is charming, friendly, good, has a Porsche, and he likes her a lot. But of couse Abby lives at Travis's place, so the thing is a bit complicated. And if this wasn't enough, all people at College think she and Travis are friends with benefits. Which sucks for Abby.

Travis on the other hand is very.. Well, he's changing his habits. He has a lot of issues, but he's trying to solve them. With Abby's help.

This story is such a beautiful story. On one hand you have Abby with daddy issues, on the other you have Travis with mommy issues (the psychologist in me must say this). They are so different, and yet, so very alike. I loved them both.

If you haven't read this book yet, I'm seriously recommending it to you! Because it's fucking unbelievable and so, so worth it! It's full of great happy moments and greater heart-breaking situations. A beautiful disaster, indeed.
