This week's Tease comes from
Walking Disaster
Jamie McGuire
First - The Blurb:
Finally, the highly anticipated follow-up to the New York Times bestseller Beautiful Disaster.

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.
Second - The Tease:
Abby leaned in again, and this time I let her come close enough to touch her lips to mine. She looked up at me, serious and resolute. "Don't make me beg," she whispered against my mouth.
No matter how noble I'd intended to be, those words coming from her mouth destroyed me. I grabbed the back of her head and sealed my lips against hers.
Third - My Thoughts:
After reading Beautiful Disaster and loving it, I just had to read Walking Disaster and get inside Travis's head. Seeing the story from his perspective was awesome and helped me understand him better. He is a broken soul, but not beyond saving.
Seeing Abby from his side was also interesting. She's the first woman aside from his mother that he has ever loved. Experiencing romantic love for the first time, he certainly runs through some very intense emotions as he tries to win Abby's heart.
Knowing how the story ends, made it a little easier to read through those intense emotions.
My Rating: 5 out of 5
