South Hills Meet up Beautiful Disaster: A Novel Jamie McGuire

Please Bring a Chick Lit book suggestion if you have one!

Not sure what to bring?  A chick lit book that is out in Paperback. Here is the definition of Chick Lit: Chick lit is genre fiction within women's fiction which addresses issues of modern women often humorously and lightheartedly***  Sometimes we do slightly deeper books than this, but we always do women's fiction that's not too heavy so if you don't have time to read it you can still come & enjoy yourself.


Description of Beautiful Disaster:

The new Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate number of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance from the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend, 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 wants—and needs—to avoid. He spends his nights winning money in a floating fight ring, and his days as the ultimate college campus charmer. Intrigued by Abby’s resistance to his appeal, 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’s apartment for the same amount of time. Either way, Travis has no idea that he has met his match.
