Publisher's Summary

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 thought he was invincible, Abby Abernathy brings him to his knees.
Every story has two sides. In Jamie McGuire's New York Times best seller Beautiful Disaster, Abby had her say. Now it's time to see the story through Travis's eyes.

Travis Maddox 2.0!

Although Beautiful Disaster wasn’t my favorite book I did like Travis so I gave this one a shot. I absolutely loved this story from his POV. Although the plot is a bit repetitive, it felt more like a “behind the scenes” look into Travis and Abby’s story. It gave me a better appreciation for the first book. (Perhaps Travis's side of the story should have been told first?)

I enjoyed the narration, story and overall feel of this book so much more than Beautiful Disaster. I’m glad I gave this one a try. And the epilogue was amazing!

Simple AMAZING! Better than Book 1!

OMGOOODNESS! How do you write the exact same story... better than the first from another POV...!!! This is really hard to do and McGuire nailed it...

I was so nervous about this book b/c I didn't want my original impression of Travis Maddox to change, not one bit... WOW... This book is like.... it is like....

Ok...first... I was scared some scenes from BD would be redone from Travis POV, which I felt were already done from his POV in BD... but you know what... McGuire apparently felt that way too, because not one of those scenes where redone...

Second... I was so wanting to hear the other side of the virgin/smex/leaving scene... When Travis smashed up everything in BD... OMG! SO much better now that I have see it from Travis POV... WOW... WOW.., I loved the silent rage... it was like Travis was raging on the outside... going all crazy, smashin up the house... but inside... he is complete numb, silent... dead... quite... just broken...! OMG! Who writes like that...? McGuire I will read anything you write!

Third... Beautiful Disaster (BD) is how the outside world sees Travis Maddox...very tough, brutally honest and a "Maddog" right... But this book... is like the inner turmoil of that very ruff shell... but deep down...Travis is soooo very innocent... OMG! WOW WOW... and how he loves Abby! His Pigeon...

And the epilogue! WHAT! YESSSSS! I always wondered what Travis and Pigeon life would be like after college... Soooo cool!!!

*Extra*: Remember in BD when America said Travis and Shep talk... Well boy do they... all thier conversations are exposed~!!! LOVED IT!!!
