Walking Disaster: A Novel

Walking Disaster - Jamie McGuire I just finished Beautiful Disaster the other day and decided to jump right into Walking Disaster. In the first book I fell completely in love with Travis Maddox and his intense, flawed ways. Beautiful Disaster is told entirely from Abby's point of view. But there are always two sides to every story and in Walking Disaster we get the story from Travis' point of view. I was so excited to jump into his head and find out what he was thinking. I didn't think it would be possible to love Travis more but I was wrong.I really think more authors should write a second book told from the perspective of the male character. I loved getting to see what happened on Travis' side when he and Abby were apart. In fact I loved this book so much that I rated it higher than I did Beautiful Disaster. A lot of books are told from alternating POV's but I think this is the first time I have read a book told solely from the male characters perspective. I loved every minute of it. You really get to see the real Travis in this book. Someone who isn't as confident as he wants everyone to think. Someone who second guesses himself. It was nice to see this side of him and made me love him that much more. Yes, he is flawed and yes, he is very intense but you get a real sense of why he is this way and it all starts to make sense.Much of this story is the same as Beautiful Disaster just told through Travis' eyes. It really didn't matter to me though. It was great to see everything through his eyes and get to know his true feelings. Perhaps the most amazing part was the epilogue. This was an entirely new part to Abby and Travis' story. It takes us well beyond the Epilogue from the first book. I was swooning and gushing all over the place. It left me in a big puddle of goo.This is a great companion novel to Beautiful Disaster and I couldn't recommend it more. Make sure that you read the first book before picking this one up. You will love getting to see the vulnerable side of Travis that we didn't get to see in the first book. Under that hard exterior he just wants to be loved.
