I loved this book!! How could this be a debut novel?? For me, it was perfect! It pulled me right in and never let me go! Mia is a college student when she meets Flynn, an older drifter who is nothing like she would ever go for but for some reason she is drawn to him. Flynn comes with many mysteries and Mia tries to get him to knock down the walls to his heart and let her in.They have a wild relationship until one day, Flynn disappears. No note, no good bye, no anything! Mia is devastated and she never really gets over him. Fast forward, twelve years later. Mia is married to someone else, not really happy but trying to get on with her life. One day, she gets a call from her best friend, Roxanne, a doctor. She tells Mia that Flynn is back. He was in a really bad motor cycle accident and is barely hanging on. All of her old feelings come rushing back to Mia and she runs to him.Beautiful Disaster took hold of my heart and pulled me right in to the story of Mia and Flynn. I found myself hurrying through the pages because I had to know how it was all going to come together in the end. I was not disappointed. I can't wait to read more by Laura.
