The author picks and chooses which parts she wanted to devote this additional perspective to...There's not much rhyme or reason to it. There is also little additional information given to the reader, with the exception of the twelve page epilogue.

Synopsis

How much is too much to love? Travis Maddox learned two things from his mother before she died: Love hard. Fight harder.

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.

It’s interesting to see Travis’ neediness up close, helping us to better understand his temper. Readers can really see what Abby’s on-again-off-again high jinks did to the poor guy.

It seemed like a no brainer for me. I loved Beautiful Disaster so I should have loved this book too. Unfortunately, it didn’t live up to my expectations.
