Walking Disaster (Beautiful #2) by Jamie McGuire

Walking-Disaster-Cover-2 by Jamie McGuire

I read this book and then and reviewed it on Goodreads back when it came out. However, I never reviewed it here, even though I frequently use it an example of misogyny in the romance genre.


And here are some quotes from the book’s “hero” (and one or two from the “slutty women” characters – meaning not the heroine!):

“I heard that, skank.”

She had the hair of a porn star.

I nodded. “Ladies.”
They hummed and sighed in harmony. Vultures. Half of them I’d bagged my freshman year, the other half had been on my couch well before fall break.

She leaned forward on her elbows to make better eye contact. I felt the urge to shudder with disgust.

No way was she a slut, though. Not even a reformed slut. I could spot them a mile away.

Did women deserve to be treated like sluts? No. Did sluts deserve to be treated like sluts? Yes.

However, if I took that whore home, bagged her, and released her strings-free, I was suddenly the bad guy. Nonsense.

“First of all . . . I have standards. I’ve never been with an ugly woman. Ever.”
