Finally, the highly anticipated follow-up to the New York Times bestseller Beautiful Disaster.
Can you love someone too much?
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. But just when he thinks he is invincible, Abby Abernathy brings him to his knees.
Every story has two sides. In Beautiful Disaster, Abby had her say. Now it's time to see the story through Travis's eyes.

From the moment you open this book, it is clear it is not a retelling of A Beautiful Disaster (book 1). The prologue of WALKING DISASTER provides great insight into Travis where book 1 keeps both Abby's and Travis's backstories a mystery for much of the book.
I thoroughly enjoyed the telling of this story from Travis's eyes. His POV added to the story that was told in book 1 and allowed the reader to bond with him even more.
Travis's love for Abby and his attraction to her is tangible. The hold she takes on his soul is relayed with depth of emotion and heart touching detail.
WALKING DISASTER makes also wonderful use of secondary characters. Travis's family, his father and brothers, made for some wonderful scenes, and poker night from Travis's POV was classic and laugh out loud funny.
Shep and America are present and intertwined into this story but this time you see the other side. You see them really understand the effect Abby is having on Travis and you know they understand how different Abby is from other women for Travis.
The final critical scenes from Beautiful Disaster told in Travis's POV here in this book became even more emotional.
This was wonderful read!
I enjoyed WALKING DISASTER more than the first book, and I'm very much looking forward to Travis's brothers' stories.
The ending of this book was really well done and definitely has me hoping Thomas's story is next!
