Book Description

Set in the same time-frame as Beautiful Disaster, now we hear the story from Travis' point of view.

Travis lost his mother at a very young age, but before she died she taught him two important rules... Love hard. Fight harder.

Growing up in a family of men who like to gamble and fight, Travis Maddox is a tough guy. Known for his bad reputation with women, and feared for his incredible fighting skills, all the boys want to be him, and the girls simply want him...

Abby Abernathy is the first girl to treat him the way he feels he should be treated, with dislike and disinterest. It is her lack of interest that sparks his determination to win her round.

Will the invincible Travis 'Mad Dog' Maddox be defeated by a girl?

    5.0 out of 5 stars No 1 Alpha Male 1 Feb. 2014
    By Lewlin
    Format:Kindle Edition
    The story that started in Beautiful Disaster from Abby's POV is retold in Travis' POV. I think I preferred this book. It was nice to see what makes the bad boy tick, what floats his boat, what's going on in his head!!

    Ms McGuire captured the very essence of Travis and all the dialogue and his thought processes were totally in his character. Not once did I ever think Oh no he wouldn't say or do that. Not many female authors can write a male POV but Jamie did it well.

    Loved Travis even more, if that's possible!!

    Format:Kindle Edition
    ‘Walking Disaster’ written by Jamie McGuire is in some ways a continuation, but mostly an alternative version of the first novel ‘Beautiful Disaster’ the author wrote.

    In the shortest possible way it can be described as a retelling of previously published novel from Travis perspective, the other main character besides Abby that reader had met on the pages of predecessor. Therefore the very first question is what the book offers new, whether you will like it if you loved the first and did it managed to bring (and how much) new things. And the answer is twofold: yes and no.

    The only original and add-on thing compared to the original reader will find inside is ‘Epilogue’ which may seem a bit redundant and too sweet, but still it’s the new material. Also looking on the positive side the reader will be able to find more things about Travis background and his origins, what was happening during fighting in Vegas and how he felt after break-up.

    Speaking about the not so good things the novel books for the most part transcribe actions, even the dialogues because of which reader will have a strong sense of déjà vu all the time. Thus is quite questionable how interested the audience will be for another side of the story, but since it was a masculine side and women always want to know how men think I believe that was the reason the author has made this challenging decision for the sequel. Although it must be recognized that this is an imaginative and bold move that is not encountered often.

    For those who didn’t read the prequel Jamie McGuire wrote a romantic novel that will be loved by romance lovers, for its theme presenting a bit predictable teenage love but also providing lot of excitement for reader.

    Title: Walking Disaster
    Author: Jamie McGuire
    Publication Date: April 2013
    Publisher: Simon & Schuster UK

    How much is too much to love?
    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. Just when he was invincible, Abby Abernathy brings him to his knees.

    Every story has two sides. In Jamie McGuire's New York Times bestseller Beautiful Disaster Abby had her say. Now it's time to see the story through Travis's eyes.

    Finally the wait for Walking Disaster is over and for huge fan's of Abby & Travis couldn't have been more excited for this, I know I certainly was.
    The first book Beautiful Disaster is Abby Abernathy's side of the story and how she thought of Travis, Now in this book it's bad boy & womaniser Travis Maddox's side of the story and what went on deep down in that handsome head of his and why he fell for Abby so hard...

    Yes, this book is a love story but deep down there is darkness and edginess between them both with plenty of trust issues but that is what makes us readers love the couple ever so more.
    Travis and Abby are both at college which is where they meet, Shepley( Travis' cousin) and America(Abby's best friend) are also mentioned in BD and WD an awful lot, which are both great characters too.

    It starts off with Travis being a little boy and his mum in hospital is slowly but she gives him one last piece of advice, "Love Hard...Fight Harder...

    Ok, where to start...., love and gallons more love for Mr Maddox? Yeah, that sounds about right.

    Obviously, I'll have to start by profusely stating my love for BD. Forever ingrained in my epic books list, it's safe to assume I, along with everyone else, fell madly in love with Bad Ass Maddox. The prose and characters were beautiful and I loved every second of living in one very steamy apartment ;). I read tons of books and BD was the first book I read where I was enthralled, enraptured, shocked, amused and every other emotion under the sun, all in the very best ways possible. Each scene was essential to the plot, with no unnecessary babble to (unnecessarily) chunk it out, and not once did I find myself bored and wishing the plot would hurry itself up! It was perfectly written and now forever seared into my brain.

    That said, exactly the same stands for WD! I loved every second, and reading Travis' POV was both a new insight and beautiful retelling of BD. The male POV is handled brilliantly and the relationship between Shep and Travis written to perfection. It's a gift in itself to be given the opportunity to delve into the mind of the best loved and lusted Travis Maddox and I loved every millisecond. Fast paced, action packed and with plenty of steamy bits, it definitely deserves it's five stars.

    I have been known on the whole to read books from a female POV and for this reason WD is probably one of the first books I've ever read from a male POV, and some male POV it is! Never once did I feel let down or disappointed, regardless of the sky high expectations I had from BD.

    Contrary to some of the negative reviews I've read, I'd like to add some of my own points.
