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.

Not really as I was not a huge fan of the narrator's voice in this version versus the girl's voice who read Beautiful Disaster. But it was still fun to listen to.
Well obviously Beautiful Disaster as it's from Abby's POV. This book allows you to get a glimpse into Travis and what makes him tick. Also, you get to experience the anguish, love, passion, and longing he has to be with Abby and how much he truly loves her.
He was good with the emotion in Travis' voice during certain parts, but it seemed that during other major parts in the book, his emotion was not portrayed correctly as to how Travis was really feeling.
The entire book moved me, but I really enjoyed getting to know Travis a little more from the inside, versus what Abby saw on the outside. You can really tell that he was in love with her from the second he saw her and decided to take on the challenge of Abby.
Travis and Abby...What a joy. From the perspective of Travis, I rate Book 2 better than the first book of the series. I hardly notice the genre.
Jaime Mcguire showed Travis a man capable of accepting tears, fear and heartbreak without sounding cheesy. Dan Bittner was brilliant in his narration.
Lastly, I enjoyed the epilogue. Good job to both author and narrator.
I am a sucker for a good book. I would take it over food any day. I will read anything that is put in front of me.
Dan Bittner brought this book to life! Jamie McGuire is a major genius... This was a really good story.
The characters are lovable. I don't ever remember college being like that.it Sometimes it felt a little petty. But you get lost in it. I did have a roommate with a boyfriend named Travis with tattoos and precincts ... Kinda funny
Omg! I fell in love with his voice... He made cursing sexy
The first chapter made me cry.
I LOVED this follow up to Beautiful Disaster! I thought hearing the inner thoughts of Travis pulled the pieces of their love story together...and I thought the author did a great job of telling the same story, yet not being repetitive. Unlike other reviewers, I enjoyed replaying specific scenes (not all of the scenes) but hearing the other side of the story...isn't that what we all want - to know what the other person is thinking?
I really loved the writing as well., specifically the dialogues - between Sheply and Travis, Pigeon and Travis, America and Sheply..I thought the author did a great job of really making it feel like we were there at college with them - just the right amount of cussing and drinking (all things that happen in college) without it being too much. And the narrator was FABULOUS!! Wow...he really brought Travis Maddox to life for me...I felt every emotion that he felt - it is amazing how much difference a narrator can make to an audiobook.
I highly recommend this book, but I would read Beautiful Disaster first.
The love story of Travis and Abby. I love his point of view.
No but he was awesome!!!!
Loved the little bit of potty mouth in this love story. I can absolutely feel Travis's love for her. Since I listened to Beautiful Disaster first, I would recommend listening to either or first, since the story is from each of their perspectives. Definitely recommend Walking Disaster and Beautiful Disaster.
Walking Disaster was a great book (though as a companion - not stand alone)! The epilogue was an amazing look into the characters' future! Great job Jamie!
The story told from Travis' perspective lended us a deeper view into the Beautiful Disaster story.
Amazing, wonderful, fulfilling!
The epilogue was amazing! That will stick with me for a long time to come!
Yes it was and I pretty much did.
Recommended for EVERYONE!
I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
Walking Disaster: Disaster, Book 2 is a great follow-up to "Beautiful Disaster":Book 1 as the story is told from the point of view of Travis! It is really fun to read the same basic events as told by both the leading female and male, granting the reader two perspectives. I am looking forward to more from the author, Jamie McGuire. She tells her stores with great description and vivid emotions that are expressed through engaging characters.
Dan BIttner did an amazing portrayal of Travis, as well as the entire cast of Walking Disaster. I could listen endlessly to his narration.
Definitely credit worthy! Enjoy...
The whole book was sooooo good.
Travis, he makes you want to have a man love you like that.
Never listen to Dan Bittner before, but he is now one of my new fav narroaor.
yes I couldn't put it down like the fist book and love the second.
Hope she writes more books about Travis and Abby and America and Shep even maybe about all the Mdddiox boys
This amazing book wrote in Travis's POV was excellent beautiful disaster was one of my all time favourites until this came out. Jamie McGuire makes the characters so real and believable. I can't wait for more of this author maybe more from Trent,Tyler,Thomas and the twins? Would also love to read America and Shepleys story. Way to go Jamie Loved this book
