|“To douchebags! he said, gesturing to Brad. And to girls that break your heart, he bowed his head to me. His eyes lost focus. And to the absolute fucking horror of losing your best friend because you were stupid enough to fall in love with her.”
― Jamie McGuire, Beautiful Disaster
“You know why I want you? I didn’t know I was lost until you found me. I didn’t know what alone was until the first night I spent without you in my bed. You’re the one thing I’ve got right. You’re what I’ve been waiting for, Pigeon.”
Now tell me, how can you resist a guy like that? I can’t remember how many times I have read this book. I have even lost count the times I have marked the pages so I can easily review my favorite scenes, highlighted every crazy lines that Travis and Abby have sweetly thrown to each other.
Meet the Characters:
Abby Abernathy: a girl who was trying to leave outside the shadow of her dark past. She moved town and changed college with America, her best friend and the only person aware of her past. Not only did she witness it, but countless times she helped Abby escaped from it.
Travis Maddox: the bare knuckle fighter who tends to sleep around with almost every woman in the campus. His irresistible charm makes them hard to say no! But he has some issues… a lot of them! He is possessive and overprotective! He had his fair share of life misfortunes and had never figured out how to cope with them. But he was the perfect match for Abby!!!
The Love – Hate Story:
Can Travis Maddox finally be tamed and be perfect enough to deserve Abby’s love?
Can Abby manage to get through the ugly things that came between them?
Can they both hold on to what they believed in despite the damaged pasts that have shaken them?
Crazy, exciting and insanely addictive! The intensity and passion that Jamie McGuire has created between Travis and Abby will definitely gets right under your skin, with all those emotional and tremendous “push and pull” scenes…it will surely make your head spin!
Their relationship may not be a prime example of what most people would want to be involved with, but i found it certainly unique and inspirational. I love the idea that LOVE can make someone want to change. It isn’t easy to change! Changing a behavior or a habit takes a lot of time, consistency and recognition. We are who we are because of how we were raised and the experiences we’ve had. So changing a person would mean a lot of compromise and negotiation.
But my lingering question was…
“how much of yourself should you change for the one you love?”
Well I guess, it’s really not about the ups and downs, its about who you ride it with that makes the whole journey worthwhile.
…watch out for the second book , with Travis’ pov!
more exciting things to come for Walking Disaster , April 2013!!!
