Romancing Riley

There usually has to be some sort of romance involved for me to pick up a book. Anything with a strong emotional undercurrent is bound to get my attention. Contemporary, PNR, H/C & M/M are my favorites.

Walking Disaster: A Novel

Walking Disaster - Jamie McGuire I did enjoy this book from Trav's point of view. Honestly, I think I preferred it from his perspective. It made him a much more sympathetic and better character. Quite frankly, there are times I hated Abby with a passion while reading this book. Having said that though, I think the story was better told from her perspective. You cannot read this one without having read Beautiful Disaster. I'm not quite sure what I expected from this book going into it. I really enjoyed BD despite all the heat it got for Travis' behavior. But this one was...I don't really know. I didn't dislike it, but I didn't love it either. It was a good story, and I loved Travis, but I was a little underwhelmed. I was really torn on whether to give it 3 or 4 stars to be honest. I ended up giving it a 4 because of how much I fell in love with Travis during it.For some reason, I thought that maybe we would get more new material out of it. Yes, I understand that it was the same story being told under a different POV, and by all means, she nailed that. I enjoyed reading Travis' thoughts and feelings and seeing the story from his side. I just expected more from it I guess and it didn't fully live up to my expectations. And honestly, perhaps they were too high for any author to live up to. There was just something that felt missing to me after all was said and done. The prologue and the epilogue are really the only new material in the book, a little throughout in random scenes that Abby was not involved in. So, I guess there was new material, but maybe it just wasn't enough for me to justify reading the same story twice. I don't know why exactly I felt there would be more to it than there was, I just did. That said, Walking Disaster was well written and parts of it did tug at the heartstrings because I truly loved Travis in this story. I just didn't love it as much as I hoped I would.
