We all have a past, and in Abby Abernathy's case, sometimes that past is a dark one that we'd really rather forget about for a while. In the critically acclaimed novel Beautiful Disaster, Abby has done a great job of creating a brand new life for herself that's far away from the person she used to be.
Abby is now the epitome of perfection, and as such, she ventures off to college. The fact that her new wardrobe rivals that of the girl next door, and also the fact that she no longer curses like a sailor or drinks like a fish, is proof that Abby is a very different person, indeed.
It's difficult to know whether it was fate, or sheer coincidence that brought Travis Maddox into Abby's life. Travis was the type of person Abby knew she wanted nothing to do with. He was the campus "heartthrob" and resident "bad boy". It isn't long before he sets his sights on Abby, and he becomes even more determined when he finds out that she wants nothing whatsoever to do with him.
Travis is determined to win Abby's affections one way or another, and a bet seems to be the best way to do that. Travis challenges her to a bet that will offer them one of two results: Either Travis will refrain from sex for a month, or Abby will live in Travis' apartment for a month. Abby has obviously done a great job of painting the new picture of her life for Travis, who still has no idea that she has a dark past. It won't be long, however, and he'll begin to understand that he's in for a few surprises with this new "relationship" that he wasn't counting on.
