My Rating- 4 STARS
Synopsis- 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.
My Review- Although I didn't enjoy this quite as much as I did from Abby's POV in Beautiful Disaster, it was so fun to be inside a mind of a guy with temper issues, commitment issues and Love issues.
Travis was taught a few important lessons from his mum just before she died; Love hard and fight harder. I really began to understand Travis and the way his personality shines when he is around Abby. He has fallen in love with the one girl who seems oblivious to him, his charms don't work on her and he enjoys her company as a friend as well as wanting something more. It confuses him and puts him in a place, within his own mind, where he doesn't know how to act or how to show this girl that she means everything to him. When she is out of his sight, he panics. Making him quite obsessive. The thought of anyone touching her sends him over the edge, which makes him possessive. Not the best qualities to have in a relationship and it puts a lot of strain on them.
Before Abby he was lost, slept around and only knows how to vent his anger on using a girl for the
night and drinking or in the Fight Clubs he uses to earn money. He hates himself when he does it but cant seem to stop when he gets emotional. When he and Abby fight, he goes back to his old ways. Abby is forgiving, but he doesn't entirely want her that way. He wants her to care about what he has done...he just doesn't want her to leave because he messes up. And that is the disaster of their
relationship. Both of them have serious issues that hurt the other, but they are made for each other, no matter how much it hurts them.
Travis becomes frustrated when he near enough changes his life for Abby and thinks she barely
notices, but Abby has the best pokerface he has ever seen. He knows she is running away from a life and from a person who has hurt her before, someone a not like him. She runs from him everytime things get tough and it messes with his head, makes him panic and fight. Its all he knows how to do. So he fights his hardest to keep her close, even if it makes him look like a violent madman. Its such a messed up tale that I cant help loving it!
Overall, I really loved this book and cant wait to read more by this author.
