Fans of Beautiful Disaster are going to love this story just as much as I did!! While reading it though, I did pull out my copy of Beautiful Disaster so I could cross reference the story. To read some of the same scenes from different both POV’s, was so engaging!!
Being inside of Travis’s head was an interesting twist into his and Abby’s relationship. I was able to get a different perspective and it was still just as awesome. The amount of passion that Travis has is just amazing. Travis treated woman as play toys before meeting Abby and discarded them just as quick as he picked them up. He changed drastically once Abby caught his eye. He thought he found someone worthy of being in his life but they both had issues in their lives that kept them apart.
I really do love Travis!! He has that serious front, but it all just a cover. He is compassionate, but it just takes the right person to find the true Travis. He may fire up easily, but it is usually to defend those he cares about. However once all of his faults were out, I still couldn’t help but love him!! I saw Abby a bit differently through Travis’s eyes too, the way that idolised her from the start and the feelings he had, whilst Abby was trying to deflect him.
Some of the Travis’s POV’s that I was hoping to see weren’t actually in the book and were simply glossed over, but it still didn’t take anything away from the amazing story it was. Those who haven’t read the first book will probably struggle with how the story unfolds, so I do recommend you read Beautiful Disaster first. The Epilogue… OMG!! Loved it!! It was fantastic to see something new in the world of Travis and Abby, which had so much emotion and little surprises!! I cannot wait to see more of the Maddox brothers in the future books!!
Thank you to Simon @ Schuster Australia for the copy of Walking Disaster that I won through you guys!
