You can tell you have stumbled across a great author when they are able to make you cry, feel that kind of emotion for someone you have yet to form an emotional attachment to. But whilst reading the prologue. Yes the PROLOGUE! I was crying like a baby. On more than one occasion I was reduced to tears.
The relationship between Travis and Abby isn't easy. In some places it isn't even pretty. The budding friendship is great, the steps to becoming more than friends is awkward, yet beautiful. What comes next is messy and emotional and this is one of the things I really love about Travis and Abby's relationship, the fact that it isn't perfect. They aren't perfect. Travis's reactions to some of the scenes are over the top, but when you can see inside his head you can understand why maybe he reacts a certain way.
I loved the epilogue. To see their happily-ever-afters, its something we don't get to see very often and I think sometimes you need it. Now all that's needed is for me to go find my copy of Beautiful Disaster and read Abby's POV.
The prologue broke my heart, it truly did. It was touching, beautifully written in the sense that it's "simple" from the mind of a toddler but somehow it was more powerful because of that.
I loved Travis in Beautiful Disaster but this takes him to a whole new level. Jamie McGuire is incredible, it's almost like Travis ceases to be a fictional character at some point and becomes real. She has truly gotten into his head and produced absolute perfection.
There are hilarious bits, heartbreaking bits, and most importantly, answers to any questions you could have from BD.
My only surprise, was that although I'd wanted to shake Abby a few times in BD, I adored her and fully supported her. In Travis' mind, I almost didn't like her. I almost felt like he deserved better and on reflection, that's amazing. Two books, same story, different POV and somehow it becomes a flawless contrast, which totally changes your feelings and in doing so, you understand Travis more. you understand his reactions and feelings because hey, in his head, Abby is as clear as mud, whereas when you're in her head, he's just acting a bit crazy!!
I feel like I'm going to be very much in the minority, but I didn't really like the epilogue. It really didn't work for me. There are two parts to it, him and them. The "them" part I loved, the "him" part I hated. (I don't want to give it away to anyone yet to read).
Regardless though, this is absolute perfection and I think even readers who were a bit on the fence with BD would love this story retold through Travis. Wow
This is Beautiful Disaster' s shall I say sister story?? As its not the 2nd book it's the 1st book written through the eyes of the beautiful Travis Maddox
I was so excited to read this book from Travis' s POV as when I read beautiful disaster I was always thinking "God what's going through Travis' s mind"? "Is he crazy"? ;)
This book is so different and perfectly balanced from each POV (I secretly love Travis' s book better----- just putting that out there!) Ha
Even though from the get go I knew what was gonna happen in the story and I think that made it more heartbreakingly gut wrenching crazy (for me anyways) as I couldn't stop the tears flowing.....Looking at it from Travis' s POV is sheer brilliance.
But reading this "sister" book to the "original" book it's liking reading a different story as Jamie McGuire has some very special scene' s and chapters that aren't in the "original" book and I just loved them those scene' s just finished this truly beautiful love story off.
I'll never get enough of Mr Travis "Mad Dog" Maddox and these 2 books I will forever cherish.
