Walking Disaster is a companion novel to Beautiful Disaster; it’s the same story told from Travis’s perspective, but also very different. I loved Beautiful Disaster, and I devoured this book as well. I was up until 3 AM finishing this book, and it didn’t matter that ultimately I knew what was going to happen!
While reading Beautiful Disaster, I loved and hated Travis. He’s possessive, jealous, and has a quick temper. Abby and Travis’s stormy relationship is borderline toxic, OK, it’s pretty toxic… but really, they’re a beautiful disaster and I couldn’t help rooting for them.
There are two sides to every story, and I really appreciated being inside Travis’s head in Walking Disaster, and reading the story from his perspective. I loved seeing Travis’s vulnerable side, and understanding his emotions in certain scenes that I was weary about in BD. I also really enjoyed seeing his relationships with his Dad, brothers, and best friend Shepley.
I highly recommend reading Beautiful Disaster first (if you haven’t already), as some events are referenced or glossed over without much detail, and I think it’d confuse new readers. Walking Disaster is a must-read for fans!
