Another beautiful book written by Kate Brian. In the story Ariana Osgood returns to school and she befriends with her ex, to move on with her life. Later on in the book Ariana's characer becomes brutal. It was too good to put down the book ( )

Ariana Osgood is settling in to Briana Leigh’s life. She’s now enrolled at a private school and is returning to the privileged life she’s accustomed to. She was one of the popular girls at Easton Academy and she’s determined to be the same at Atherton-Pryce Hall.

Things begin to quickly fall into place for Ariana, now known as “Ana”. She’s befriended the right clique and has tied up loose ends to her past. Or so she thinks. When her former crush and nemesis learns where she is, Ariana will stop at nothing to keep her new life.

Beautiful Disaster is the second novel in the Privilege series – the spinoff from the Private series. Ariana is a character readers will love to hate. At times, you will feel sympathy for her until she concocts a new plan to do away with the competition. Ariana is ruthless! I have to say, while reading the Private novels, Ariana had a quiet presence, a character that is easy to forget. Which made the truth behind Thomas’s death that more shocking.

In Privilege, readers see the REAL Ariana and it’s quite frightening. In Beautiful Disaster, Ariana is portrayed as paranoid. Her confidence is slipping as her life begins to slip out of control. I have to say, I was exhausted while reading about Ariana’s scheming to keep her past hidden!

Beautiful Disaster ended on a cliff hanger, one that could possibly destroy Ariana for good. Fortunately readers won’t have to wait long to see what happens next. Perfect Mistake, book three, will be released in October. ( )

This was an another amazing entry in the sick, twisted and glamorous world of Ariana Osgood. I could not put it down! Beautiful Disaster picks up where Privilege left off, and just got better the further I read. Ariana is such a great character. She can murder and eliminate any threats that threaten her, yet walk around and mingle in society easily. Ariana is so insane, but her story is just so interesting to read about.

Kate Brian does such a great job writing the Privilege books. The writing in both Beautiful Diaster and Privelege just flows and captivates you.

The ending was perfect, and leaves readers pining for Perfect Mistake, which comes out in October this year. ( )
