Blog Friends Book Club Review - Beautiful Disaster

Now that we all have had time to read this wonderful book Beautiful Disaster we think it is time we answer a few questions. Lindsay and I came up with the below list of questions that will be answered by both of us. If you have any other questions we would love to have you send them to us!

How did you experience the book? Were you engaged immediately, or did it take you a while to “get into it”? SHAREE - this book had me engaged from page 1. I enjoyed right of the bat. LINDSAY: This book had me at page one, mostly because of this . . .

. . . The F word had me at hello and then the story pulled me in mighty quickly.

How did you feel reading it – amused, sad, disturbed, confused, bored, etc…? SHAREE - I felt differently throughout the entire book. At first I was drawn in and captivated by the scene and up tightness of the main character. Then I was intrigued by how he found her "more" then just a girl/woman like he normally does. Then there were many parts of the book that I was fearing that he would die because the bond was finally so strong with both. LINDSAY: I thought this book was very intriguing. The characters personality's were so different from one another so it kept me wanting more at all times. If I felt anything It was probably excitement. I guess I'm not as aware of my feelings as I should be. Who knows.
Do the main characters change by the end of the book? Did they grow, or come to learn something about themselves? SHAREE - I believe that both characters evolved through this book, both for LOVE. She finally accepted her love for him despite her FEAR of the common elements of her past - while he finally allowed himself to LOVE someone not just in the bed. He opened his heart even when he had no experience to go off of. LINDSAY: I think they changed, but only because they brought out the best in each other. They learned to love and trust and that made them better people. I guess priorities changed as well.
Is the ending satisfying? If so, why? IF not, why not – how would you change it? SHAREE - I was pleased with the ending. Young kids doing what young people do - fall in love. Tattoos (hello I am a big fan of names on my body).  LINDSAY: I thought the ending was well done. I grew attached to these characters and honestly wanted more. I wasn't mourning it like Fifty shades or anything- I just could of used a second book just to continue reading more and more about them. 

Would Travis be someone you would be interested in dating given he was a "bad boy" with a side of anger issues? SHAREE - oh yes I would. Well I would as soon as he started chasing me and adoring me like Pidge. LINDSAY: Absolutely! The way he literally fought for Abby melts me.
How did you feel about Travis and Abby's break up? SHAREE - I felt that it was warranted due to eachs self issues. LINDSAY: It was semi painful and I was SUPER glad they figured it out. I mean they tourchered each other. For real. I couldn't deal.

Like or hate "Pidge" nickname? SHAREE - I loved the nickname. I think it was cute and only for her from him. 
LINDSAY: Hate. I mean I thought it was super cute what Travis did with it, but not something I would want to be called.
