Book Review: Walking Disaster (Beautiful Book 2) by Jamie McGuire


Beautiful Book 2Title: Walking Disaster
Author: Jamie McGuire
Series: Beautiful #2
Pages: 433
My Rating: ❤❤❤❤

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.

 
Going into Walking Disaster I expected to see Abby and Travis' story from a different point of view. In other words, I expected to see mostly all the same scenes from Beautiful Disaster, just from Travis' perspective, not Abby's. I wasn't wrong. Some scenes are indeed repeats from the first book, however, McGuire expands upon some scenes and manages to weave in a few new scenes.

I loved Travis "mad dog" Maddox in the first book, and felt the absolute same in this book. He is extremely rough around the edges, and we saw how much he changed when he was around Abby. This book gives you so much more than that. We are able to witness first hand the transformation he went through and how deep his feelings really are. It is absolutely fantastic!

The back cover explains that there are two sides to every story. It's not often that an author gives you both sides either. This seems to be happening more and more, and I am so grateful for it! Don't get me wrong, not all books and series need to do this. Even when an author switches between points of views in the book is enough.

McGuire was able to add a little something extra to Walking Disaster also...an epilogue! It was absolutely perfect and I wouldn't change it, not one bit! Although it's not necessary to read both books, I highly recommend to! Do not read them back to back though, take a break in-between...trust me.
