I liked this book up until the trip to Vegas and when Abby left Travis. I actually liked them together, and thought the relationship was beneficial on both sides up until then. I even thought the Pidgeon nickname was cute, but then I'm a sucker for nicknames. However, after the breakup, Travis showed his insane-crazy-beat-everyone-up-want-to-practically-kill-himself side that is NOT healthy at all, and I was praying that Abby would stay broken up with him. This was the "beautiful disaster" that I thought was implied by the title of the book - their relationship allowed them to grow up in a way, but it wasn't a healthy one that would last long term. Therefore, I was very disappointed when they did get back together, and GET MARRIED, and seem all happy-go-lucky-love-eachother-forever-nothing-will-change by the end. I did like Abby's character up until the point that she decided that she wanted to get back together with Travis (and getting a "Mrs. Maddox" tattoo?? Basically permanently branding herself - wtf?). I don't see this relationship lasting.
So the conclusion is, really liked the beginning of the book, disappointed with the way the author decided to take the story at the end.
