…if you liked Beautiful Disaster I think you will probably like this as well, after all is there such as thing as too much Travis? I don’t think so. ~ Under the Covers

Travis Maddox likes two things, women and fighting and he indulges in both as often as he can, but all that changes when he see Abby Abernathy; the empty encounters he has no longer satisfy him and all he wants to fight for is her. We saw Abby’s point of view in Beautiful Disaster, now we get to see through Travis’s eyes in Walking Disaster.

I was both excited and a little dubious about Walking Disaster; excited because I really loved Beautiful Disaster, especially the gorgeous bad boy Travis Maddox, and dubious because it just seemed a little…unnecessary, Travis’s thoughts are pretty easy to guess, even without reading a book from his POV. Now I have read it, I have come to the conclusion it was a little of both.

I am going to start up by saying straight up that I preferred Beautiful Disaster this is mainly for the reason I stated above, I found it easy to guess what Travis was thinking but with Abby, without knowing why she does some of the things she does, she just comes across as a bit of an indecisive bitch. BUT, that didn’t stop me from enjoying this book; after all I know what it is going on in her head already.

One aspect of Walking Disaster that did add new and interesting parts to the story was seeing Travis with the rest of the Maddox clan, it was great having a deeper look into his family. So although this book didn’t really add much else to the preexisting story, it did add was a few more Maddox boys for us to gawk and drool over. Which I did. At length. I look forward to reading their stories, especially Trent and Thomas.

It sounds a bit like I was bored reading this book which, maybe I was little after all I was going over something I had read before, but there was enough in it that I eagerly read along and I am already excitedly anticipating the next book! I did enjoy this book, if you liked Beautiful Disaster I think you will probably like this as well, after all is there such as thing as too much Travis? I don’t think so.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
