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.

HOT HOT HOT!!!!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Walking Disaster to be better than the print version?

I think you get something diffferent with audio.. It really is all about the narrator and the characters being believable.

What does Dan Bittner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The voice of Travis is everything I could have ever wanted. Travis is hot and steamy.. I melted as I listen to this book.. It is clearly 5 stars.. Thank you Dan Bittner you did a great job as the voice of Travis.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did not want to turn it off.. it was a consistant 11 hours of Travis

Didn't live up.

2.5 STARS

Oh my. I can't believe it.

Let me start off by saying that I listened to this book. Thank God for Dan Bittner (honey read me the phone book any time).

The prologue made me simply uncomfortable. It was awkward and unrelatable.

Here's the thing, I LOVED Travis in Beautiful Disaster. Loved him. I loved his passion and his need for Abby, but I couldn't stand him in this book. He started off as in BD a womanizer, a ladies man but I never thought that hearing his thoughts would be so revolting. When he finally came to terms with his love for Abby he became this whiney needy child, throwing tantrums and fits which didn't translate as being so childish in BD as it did in WD. Don't get me wrong, I love the way he loved her, I loved his passion and at times his need for her, but mostly I was annoyed. I was annoyed that Abby was a drug to him, love isn't about being enveloped by someone else, it's about sharing your lives, it's about loving the person you become when you're with the one you love.


Epilogue- hmph. I usually love when books tie up neatly, when you discover that yes they did live happily ever after, but this pair of books was about how two screwed up people can make something beautiful together, so I feel like knowing where they ended up years later wasn't something I needed. I like who they became, I just didn't feel like it added to the story.

Dan Bittner- I cried when Travis cried. I laughed when Travis laughed. Thank you for being the best part of this book.

A MUST HAVE companion to Beautiful Disaster!

I had read Beautiful Disaster several times before the audio came out. Once I had the audio I listened to that several times. I had fallen in Love with the story and characters from the very first read. So, when I heard Walking Disaster was coming out I was all on board and counting down. This book/audiobook is the same story but absolutely different at the same time. I loved finding out what exactly was going through Travis' head and knowing the male perspective during certain situations. I also delighted in knowing what was going on during scenes Abby wasn't around for. All the scenes between Travis, Shep and America just rounded out the whole story and gave you a better perspective on Travis' character.

For those of you who haven't read the first book, I highly recommend reading Beautiful Disaster First. So, really quick, This book is about two people, Abby and Travis, who both have damaged pasts. The odds of them getting together and making it last are against them. Their hurricane love story takes you through a whirlwind of emotions and slams you into a wall or two during it's tumultuous ride.

I have only two semi-negative comments. One, while Dan Bittner did an awesome job narrating, I still had a preconception of Travis' voice being a little more rough or tough; and during intense emotional times of the story, I felt his voice should have given more of that inner turmoil, on the brink of breaking kind of vibe. Second, I am going to be perfectly honest. Beautiful Disaster is still my favorite between the two and continues to be on my favorites list.

With that being said, I loved this book and absolutely recommend it. Two thumbs up to Jamie McGuire. A definate must have companion to Beautiful Disaster!

Beautiful

This story is just as amazing as when I read Abby Abernathy's side of the story.
Having first read Beautiful Disaster I fell in love with the characters and story. After learning their was another side of the story told from Travis Maddox's view I knew I had to get it. I was lucky enough to find it on audible and be able to get it as my first free book. The narration was amazing, I loved Dan Bittner's performance as well as his voice. It was very relaxing to listen too and made the experience very enjoyable. Even more so than I was expecting it to already be.
I can't wait to read her other works and would definitely recommend this book to people who not only liked Beautiful Disaster, but to also those that like a thrilling and captivating story.

Wow! This should have been the 1st book!

If it's possible I think I like this book better than the first one! His POV show how much he loves Abby. Not to mention Dan Bittner did an amazing job narrating.
