Book Club Friday- what i have been reading

I have decided to join and after doing so i started adding the books i have bought over the last year and have not read! I also have about 3 on my NOOK that i need to read, so this was easier than making a list :) So, i am linking up for Book Club Friday with Heather

My good friend Janelle got me this book for Christmas, we decided to start reading it at the same time so we could talk about the book as we went, well i was having trouble sleeping a couple nights and finished it in about 3 nights. Haven of Obedience by Marina Anderson, the front cover says "Devoured Fifty Shades"
Here is the book description from Barnes and Noble
Devoured 50 Shades? Now you're ready to enter the Haven of Obedience.
Twenty-something Londoner Natalie Bowen is envied by many, but her personal life is a disaster.

Then she hears about an exclusive weekend retreat called The Haven, a place that specializes in introducing people to pleasures they could never have imagined. Shocked at the idea, but unable to resist finding out more, Natalie decides it's time to put her hears behind her.
Once at The Haven, Natalie meets the enigmatic and disciplined Simon, a man who is used to getting what he wants. And he's decided he wants Natalie...

I gave this book 3 stars, i thought it was interesting, but i also thought it was missing something, but i am to sure what! It was a very quick read, which is nice and the plot was different than a rich man meeting a woman haha :) Have you read this book?

 The next book i pulled off my bookshelf was Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McQuire, i bought this book quite a few months ago and i wanted to read it, it just never seemed to happen! I am so sad i waited so long to read this book!

Here is the description from Barnes and Noble
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.

I started this book and finished it 2 days later, i really thought it was good! I kept you wanting to read because you were never sure what was going to happen, it also had a few surprises! I am looking forward to Travis's side of the story in the next book which is said to be available in April 2013.   Have you read this book? What did you think?    I am looking forward to starting Gone Girl this weekend!
  Happy Friday, what are you doing this weekend?   Until next time!
