First, if you haven’t read Beautiful Disaster then STOP, and go read it.
That being said, I wanted this book so much, more than Midnight Sun (Twilight from Edward’s POV) and finally an author actually did it. How many times have I secretly asked this, begged even and Jamie McGuire did it, retold the same story from the male’s POV. If you fell in love with Travis in BD then you will absolutely want to marry him in Walking Disaster.
The story was the same and then it wasn’t, it was refreshing to see it from Travis’s POV, I mean I thought I had the whole story with BD but I now know the full story. I loved having the other half of the story, I felt a little disconnected to Abby in this book, but that was because this wasn’t her story. She had her story told, now it was Travis’s, which meant more Shepley, whom I love (best supporting actor, ever) and more Trenton who I can’t wait to hear his story. Travis and Abby’s relationship is very tumultuous and seeing the story from his side show’s you just how much (homeboy crazy).
Everyone who had read BD knows the story so I’m spoiling anything when I say this; the breakup scene from Travis’s POV was
I thought it was sad told from Abby’s POV, but from Travis’s POV It killed me! Even though I knew what was going to happen it still got me. There is something about a guy as tough as Travis ‘Mad Dog’ Maddox literally losing his mind over a girl. Although its fiction us women out there all want that guy (if we don’t have him already) that will be our Travis.
The Epilogue was a good way to wrap up the story without leaving anything left to question and we got a glimpse into what happens later in life for everyone. I wasn’t left disappointed, thank you Jamie McGuire.
4 out of 5 stars.
