Area Info

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.

Rogue Chronicles Entry No. 68

Cover & Title: I'm a sucker for tattoos, and that the butterfly theme was brought back for this adds cute points. And I think the title is more than fitting, because Travis was pretty much chaos on legs.

Plot: There wasn't that much new stuff added to what we already knew from Beautiful Disaster, and sadly I can't say that the new perspective makes it more interesting. Also, the parts that were added weren't much to squeal or swoon, either. However, I liked the ending that gave us a glimpse a bit more into the future, because it was (cliché! and) cute.

Characters: I totally loved Abby and Travis in Beautiful Disaster. However, reading it from Trav's perspective wasn't as effortlessly as I remember the original to be. I thought it missed something. Flair, feeling, flow. Abby wasn't the same, and somehow Travis wasn't, either. Considering that I was so looking forward to meet those two again, it was a mayor disappointment.

Overall: Certainly not the best re-tell from another perspective, and definitvely not what I hoped it would be.

  1. I think it must be hard to retell the same story again, though from a different perspective. Especially as the reader already knows what will happen... Sorry to hear that this didn't haven't as much of a flow to it for you as the first one did. I wasn't the biggest fan of Beautiful Disaster so I think I will skip. Lovely review!
