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.

So sad it's over!!

I'm so sad that the author has said the main character's story is over, so there will be no more to come!! I absolutely loved this series.

not the same as the first, and better even

From knowing that this book has the exact same storyline as the Beautiful Disaster but just different in the narrator, I was not expecting much out of it. I wasn't even going to try it because the first book was just an "ok" to me, but I did see reviews saying that the two books somehow work out in a way that this one is not tedious and just repetitive.

After I finished the book, I would have to say that I am actually quite impressed and turned out I like this second book more than the first one. From a different perspective, it is quite a different story. Definitely Abby doesn't seem to be as annoying in this book compared to the first. He shows nice views and thoughts to the things we already saw in the first book. I mean, they are also kind of predictable seeing how obsessed he is over her. But it's still quite an entertaining read.

Smart, sexy, cool.

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

The voices add so much more dimension to the characters. They help you see the depths of each character and the story they are telling

What did you like best about this story?

It was sweet. A Cinderella tone to it, but Travis was the princess.

What about Dan Bittner’s performance did you like?

His voice was sultry, sincere, and believable

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

Yes, I was definitely hooked after the first chapter and it was bitter sweet when it was over.

Any additional comments?

I hope Jamie McGuire continues on with the other Maddox brothers.

2nd times a charm

If you could sum up Walking Disaster in three words, what would they be?

Hot, Heartbreaking, Breathtaking

What did you like best about this story?

I really liked Travis's POV better!!

Any additional comments?

While I loved Beautiful Disaster, I loved this version better. It helps females get into the heads of the male species. There are parts that you question about what happened in Beautiful Disaster and this book has most of the answers.

Perfect!

I think I prefer this story to the original! It doesn't go chapter by chapter with the 1st but, close. Love the detailed ending. Well Worth the credit.

Dont bother

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This is the exactly the same as the first book, but just read by a guy :( the only good thing was the epilog at the end, which shows a slight sliver into the future. I was very upset cause I thought for sure it would be amazing.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jamie McGuire again?

yes

Which scene was your favorite?

the epilog

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

It is neat to hear the other side of the story!

Would you listen to Walking Disaster again? Why?

Since I read Beautiful Disaster just before this I felt like i did read this twice... It is a great story but there is not much that is different between the two...

Have you listened to any of Dan Bittner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, this is my first time listening to him.

An Intense Love Story from Travis's side.

What did you love best about Walking Disaster?

I loved how it was Travis's time to tell this love story from his view. To be able to see and feel the other person version is very unique in a love story series.

What did you like best about this story?

I love the ending in the book, it was a modern " ....and they lived happily ever after."

Have you listened to any of Dan Bittner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first book narrated by Dan Bittner but I will be searching for others from him.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed, I cried and I swore at Abby's character for being so blind and stupid at times.
