Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire (Guest Blogger Review)

Walking Disaster - Jamie McGuireSummary from Goodreads

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 bestseller Beautiful Disaster Abby had her say. Now it’s time to see the story through Travis’s eyes.

Paperback, 432 pages

Trish’s Review

I’ve just finished this book. I’m a bit late on the uptake here as I didn’t read Beautiful Disaster before this one which is from Abby’s point of view, however, it didn’t matter all was explained in this one but from Travis’ point of view.

I have to say Jamie McGuire knows how to write. She grips you from the prologue and this makes you want to keep reading then once you start you really dont want to stop. I devoured this book in just a few days. I kept saying to myself just one more chapter, then 3 or 4 later I would stop. And I will be reading more of her books without a doubt.

The characters in this book are great, she has really got the insights into what you need to know about the characters right, you get to know them inside and out. Travis is a so called bad boy but on the inside he is just a helpless boy whos mum died when he was younger and hes taken her words to heart and he lives to try to fulfill what shes said. Hes not perfect but then, who is?

Abby is great she is trying to have a friendship with a man who is trying to woo her, she does a great job of resisting and their relationship that develops is fantastic. I cannot wait to read Beautiful Disaster which is from her point of view. She has a troubled past, which comes out later in the book.

Shepley and America are two great characters to have running alongside Abby and Travis. They take care if everything and act as nurturing agents to everything that’s happening. You get to know them as well not on a really in-depth level but just enough to make you love them too.

I love how this book never stops or slows down it keeps going right to the end. The epilogue is great as well, I’m glad she did this as I would of always been wanting to know the ending.

I’m so happy that she has written more books, I cannot get enough of this author.

5 stars
