Walking Disaster


Can you love someone too much?

Travis Maddox learned two things from his mother before she died: Love hard. Fight harder.

In Walking Disaster, the life of Travis is full of fast women, underground gambling, and violence. But just when he thinks he is invincible, Abby Abernathy brings him to his knees.

Every story has two sides. In Beautiful Disaster, Abby had her say. Now it’s time to see the story through Travis’s eyes.

Review & Thoughts

So I want to start by being completely honest. I had my reservations about this book. I didn't understand the point of rewriting a the same book just from another POV. I was getting annoyed that it seemed a lot of authors were going to be doing this. That being said I will HAPPILY admit I was wrong. This book is not even close to being the same as Beautiful Disaster, I mean yes the events are the same but the emotions and thought process behind this book is completely different. And there is some stuff that we didn't get to see in Beautiful Disaster.  That being said if you have an reservations or preconceived notions like I did you should throw them out the window and READ this book.
4 out of 5 Stars

So this book had me in tears with in 5 minutes. The prologue was beautiful and touching. Getting inside Travis's head was incredible.  His intense emotions which we only got glimpses of in BD were amazing to see from his POV. I have to say I believe I enjoyed Walking Disaster more then BD. It's just something about how the story unfolded and seeing it thru Travis's eyes. I loved watching him struggle with his feelings for "Pidge" , maybe because in BD I often got annoyed with Abbey I had just wanted her to get her crap together and be with Travis. And the epilogue reading the entire book is worth it for that last chapter!
