I know I've been handing out five stars like Halloween candy, but of the four I've rated that high this year, this one ties One Good Reason for the best I've read this year. Anyone who wanted to like Beautiful Disaster but just couldn't hang with the deeply internalized misogyny and textbook abuser archetype hero need to read this book. Everyone else needs to read this book too, but those readers especially deserve to treat themselves. It's well written and populated with fully-developed characters. A strong theme of respect and empowerment for women runs throughout without ever getting preachy. The heroine is self-saving and the hero is just a beautiful person.Go! Go buy and read this now!
