We can tell you all the reasons why Travis is awesome, but you really need to the book to find that out. HE is amazingly sexy and so damn adorable when he messes up that it's so hard to be mad at him. So here is the visual we have as our man Travis....
The new Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate number of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance from the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend, her path to a new beginning is quickly challenged by Eastern University’s Walking One-Night Stand.
Travis Maddox, lean, cut, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby wants—and needs—to avoid. He spends his nights winning money in a floating fight ring, and his days as the ultimate college campus charmer. Intrigued by Abby’s resistance to his appeal, Travis tricks her into his daily life with a simple bet. If he loses, he must remain abstinent for a month. If Abby loses, she must live in Travis’s apartment for the same amount of time. Either way, Travis has no idea that he has met his match.
So I believe this is my second time reading Beautiful Disaster and I'm pretty sure I can read it again right now, that's how good it is. It's definitely one of those books you can't put down and when you're done, you want to start at the beginning again. Sadly there will not be a sequel to BD, and though I am sad about that, I can completely understand. Sometimes it is better to leave it on HEA note, then try and force more. Good news is Jamie is publishing Travis' POV of BD titled Walking Disaster, I so can't wait till next year to get my hand on that. You can preorder it HERE
