Synopsis: Finally, the highly anticipated follow-up to the New York Times bestseller Beautiful 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.
Disclaimer: I received this book as a galley courtesy of the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
I appreciated the prologue, because it gave us a little bit of insight as to how Travis may have developed the emotional issues that he has . I also enjoyed the last two chapters an epilogue because we got to see beyond and the ending that we experienced in Beautiful Disaster. We got a glimpse of their lives together 11 years into the future, and to see that they were still together and happy was nice. A bit unrealistic, but still nice anyways. It almost makes all the crazy, ridiculous drama they went through worth it because they got their happy ending after all.
With that being said, I feel like I was one of the few left out of the loop on how wonderful this book is. Don't get me wrong, it's decent. Not bad at all. The writing style is identical to her previous book, so if you liked that book, theoretically you'll like this one. If after reading Beautiful Disaster you find yourself wondering what happens to Travis and Abby later in life, then I'd recommend this book. Other than that, if you don't want to feel like you've re-read Beautiful Disaster again, I would just skip to the end. That's the biggest difference anyway. If you thought that Beautiful Disaster was just okay, don't read this as it's more of the same.
