#2.5 A Beautiful Wedding


A Beautiful Wedding is a must read for fans of the series. I couldn’t wait to read it and just had to read it in one sitting.

A beautiful wedding develops the story of how Abby and Travis became Mr and Mrs Maddox. Of course nothing is ever as easy as it seems when it comes to this couple. But that is why they are so lovable. There life was never easy, so why should one of the biggest days of their life be any different.

This could be read while still reading Walking Disaster, if you wanted to match the timelines up more, but is not necessary.

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.

#2 Walking Disaster


Walking Disaster was really refreshing. It was so exciting to be back with Abby and Travis, only this time to see it through Travis’s eyes. So many things seemed to make more sense now. Small gaps were filled in and more questions were presented, along with answers.
The story is just as intense as the first novel and never falls short of amazing. Travis is an intense and exciting character. It was good that he got a book of his own. I felt every emotion that he had and relived his heartache.
It was nice to see a mans point of view on love and relationships.

Abby Abernathy doesn’t drink or swear and she works hard. Abby believes she has buried her dark past, but when she arrives at college, ger dreams of a new beginning are quickly challenged by the university’s walking one-night stand.

TRavis Maddox, sexy, built, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby needs – and wants – to avoid. He spends his nights winning money in a floating fight club, and his days as the notorious college Lothario.

Intrigued by Abby’s resistance to his charms, Travis tricks her into his life with a simple bet. If he loses, he must remain celibate for a month. If Abby loses, she must live in travis’s apartment of trh same amount of time.

Either way, TRavis has no idea that he has met his match. Or that this is the start of an obsessive, intense relationship that will lead them both into unimaginable territory.

Intense? Yes Dangerous? Yes Addictive? Hell Yes!!!

Once this book was in my hands I just couldn’t put it down. Abby and Travis’s story is so intense and so real, I felt like they were real people living in the real world with me. I was so sucked in, that nothing else mattered til I had finished read the book.
However once I finished reading, it felt sad to leave their world behind.
