Rated 5 out of 5 by from loved it! After reading beautiful disaster I was sad it ended till I found this gem. I loved reading Abby and Travis' story. But being to read it from his side of the story was a bonus. Can't wait to read the other books featuring the Maddox boys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from loved it! Love Love Love Travis. This book sucked me from the first page. I laughed and cried all at the same time. Jamie McGuire is a fabulous writer and I especially love how she has written Walking Disaster in Travis's POV and Beautiful Disaster in Abby's. I am so excited that she has created another book about another Maddox brother. Keep them coming

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good point of view I liked the first book more. Seeing Travis's point of view was a good way of seeing somethings. It gave u a better understanding of the person he is and how he saw Abby. I enjoyed it. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good point of view If you love Beautiful Disaster, you will love this. Reading it in Travis' perspective is so different and you find out his reason for the way he is. I fell in love with Travis even more in this book. Great read and I am now on the second read of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good point of view I couldn't put this book down! A captivating and unique story. Also, even though the first book (Beautiful Disaster) is the same story but from another character's point of view, Walking disaster was just as gripping!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Male POV was necessary After reading this book, the story seems more complete, despite some of the repetition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Male POV was necessary Wow, what a way to end the story of Abby and Travis. It made the book so much more enjoyable having already had Abby's point of view but also getting to see what Travis was feeling at the same time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved this one I esp loved the after that was added, with them out of school. It was nice reading it again but from a different perspective and knowing what he was doing when Abby was doing something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Walking Disaster It is a really good book. It is nice to ready it from his view

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awe I didn't mind the repetition of the two stories. It was nice to see things from Travis's POV. The mans side. They were crazy for each other and just when yo thought you were taking her side, you could see his side too, his heart crumbling worse than hers.... romantic. I didn't like the epilogue though. I didn't need to know about what happens to Benny. The end with Jim was good enough, made me cry. Really enjoyed no books, read them both in two weeks at Christmas. Very relaxing, and now my teenaged daughter can read them lol

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed I expected this book would be a continuation in the storyline of the first book, Beautiful Disaster, except in the perspective of the male character as it mentioned on the back cover. However, it was like reading book one over again. All quotes amongst the characters are exactly the same. Sure you get a different perspective but it wasn't anything special. I tried, but couldn't even make it to read the whole book.... I was very uninterested as I knew exactly what was going to happen next. This book left no surprise for the reader and was a waste of money.

Rated out of 5 by from A fantastic other perspective! I thoroughly enjoyed reading Travis's side of the story, although the story was the same, it was still very refreshing to read, and I loved this ending more than the one in Beautiful Disaster as it gave readers a sneak peek into the couple's future.

Rated out of 5 by from I read it and I loved that last two chapters of the book. I can't believe it took so long to write when the last two chapters were different. I skimmed alot of the book because it was the same as beautiful disaster. I was disappointed....expectation was too high and it let me down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT READ!! I was recently referred to read Beautiful Disaster which I read incredibly fast as the book was amazing. I am so thankful that I did not have to wait too long for Walking Disaster as it was torture enough to wait the couple weeks for release. I was sceptical of this book at first as I didn't know if I was going to read the same book again with a different point of view or if I was in for something else. Without spoiling it, you are in for something else. I loved the additional back story and thought processes that Jamie puts into this book for Travis. Personally, I loved him in BD anyway but after WD well Travis is just....sigh, speakless. I loved how we got to see more of Travis and what he did without Abby. My fav parts: Travis after Abby's birthday party and after the fire. I also loved the Prologue and the Epilogue that was written for this book, the Prologue gives us a much better understanding of Travis and his home life and the then Epilogue just completes everything perfectly. I can't say that I relate to the characters or their situtations as I am an adult but I love reading books with strong, clean stories and this has it. This was a true page turner for me and I would highly reccomend this book to anyone who just loves to read a great book! Don't forget to read Beautiful Disaster as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Beautiful Disaster I absolutely loved this book. I was always curious about Travis' perspective on things and this book covered all that. I couldn't put it down. This is a great read!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW HOTT!!! Between beautiful and walking disaster it hard to pick of these two books because i love them both in each side from these two characters but in this book after the book was finish when they got marry it went into more of there years of marriage which was great i love that but i still think there should be more books of these two lovers but i still hope for . but honestly i love this one and beautiful disaster and i can see myself re reading again .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVED IT.....Amazing!!! I was anxiously awaiting the release of this book after reading Beautiful Disaster last year and I'm very happy to say I was not disappointed. I loved reading the events and development of Travis' and Abby's relationship from his point of view and also seeing that he was equally tortured with aspects of their relationship and himself. I really liked the prologue, it added further depth and understanding to his feelings and why he was the way he was before meeting Abby. I also enjoyed the epilogue. I truly loved the book and can't wait for the stories about the other Maddox brothers to come out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, Love, LOVED I read Beautiful Diasaster last year and it became one of my favorite books so I was waiting with baited breath for Walking Disaster and I had very high expectations and I am so happy to say that they were all met. Reading this story in Travis's POV was so great, he is so tortured and it really helped understand some of the decisions he mad ein the first book. I will say that if you want to read this book you should read Beautiful Disaster first because I just think things will make more sense. I only have one complaint for this book there were some things that were glossed over, haveing read Beautiful Disaster and remembering all of these great cute moments bewteeen Travis and Abby I was looking forward to reading those in Travis's POV and for some of them thye were skipped over or glossed over, that was a bit dissapointing but other that I have no issues. I loved the Prologue and Epilogue for this book I loved how we got to see in their future at the end of the book. Overall this book was sooooo amamzing and I am so happy that the other Maddox brothers are going to get books. With an amazing begining,middle and end this book was just about perfect. :0)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Travis' perspective Having read Abby's point of view in "Beautiful Disaster", I was curious to read Travis' perspective in this novel. While the story follows the same path, we learn that Travis' view is as tortured as Abby's was, for similar but different reasons. You can read these two books in any order with the same result. The epilogue in this book was a bit ridiculous and totally unnecessary. However, I did enjoy the male's perspective on his all-consuming love. I cheered for Travis/Abby from both of their perspectives.

Rated out of 5 by from I can't even put into words how or what I feel for this book. I have been anxiously waiting for this book to be released ( the first time ever for me!) After reading the first reviews that came out, I started wondering if it would live up to all I had hoped for, and it was so far beyond anything I could have wanted. I have read Beautiful Disaster a number of times now and loved it. I have never had such a strong connection to a book before, so I had high hopes for this book. While reading Beautiful Disaster, I felt like Abby, I had so many connections to her and her ups and downs with Travis, fighting what she thought she shouldn't want, trying to want what she thought she should etc. The way Jamie McGuire puts you into her world is like nothing i have read before. I was nervous that Travis' POV would cast a different light on Abby and make me see her differently. However, seeing Abby through Travis' eyes made me fall in love with them both all over again. I could never have imagined this book could actually make me laugh out loud one moment and then bring me to actual tears the next. I loved the little moments we didn't get to see in BD, when Travis wasn't in the story, when he trashes his apartment after Abby leaves him, him taking care of her after her birthday party etc. I also loved how much we got to see America fight for what she knew in her heart was right for her best friend. The connection with his family and how much he needed them brought a whole new level of depth and admiration for Travis. I am so sad that it's over, but I love who Jamie brought peace and closure to their lives for us. Although I could read about them forever. I would have loved to read about every step in their lives. For me there are a few couples in literary history that hold special places in my heart: Elizabeth Bennett and Mr.Darcy, Anne and Gilbert (Anne of Green Gables) and now Abby and Travis. I so look forward to anything more that Jamie writes about any of these characters.
