BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:



This was a whole pile of beautiful.

Beautiful Disaster did all sorts of cray cray things to my feelings when I was reading it. I don’t think anybody who has read and enjoyed Beautiful Disaster will forget Travis Maddox.

I loved being back with Travis and Abby. Sure, Abby and I have had our moments, but bottom line, they were meant for each other.

We get the emotions from the fire and we get Abby and Travis getting married.

I gotta say I loved the wedding. Very Vegas.

I did enjoy the pre wedding girls get together with the jelly shots. I myself have only partaken in the jelly shots a couple weeks ago for the first time. Ha! What a great game to use them with.

I am glad that Jamie touched on the 'fire' because I have to admit it kind of was brushed over in Beautiful Disaster. 

Lives were lost.

I’m still not sure how I feel about how they got out of it. Is it believable that everybody that survived would stick up for them? Adam paid the price. I can’t help feeling that Trav was just as much in the wrong, but hey, I won’t dwell on it.

I think I may have liked that handled better.

Abby is protecting her man. Goes against all things lawful, but it is a book.

Do I really want Trav behind bars?

Nope.

Travis has such passion for his Pidgeon.

"I know. This is crazy. I just wanted it so bad, Abby. This crazy is my sanity."


A most touching moment with Trav’s mum. Gotta say whenever she pops up in spirit, it does make me want to grab a tissue. She sounds like a beautiful person.

Travis Maddox was the kind of gorgeous every girl dreamed about, and he was my reality.


Can’t argue with that!

A wonderful novella not to be missed.

Bring. On Trent’s book...

"Hey," Trenton said, breathless and sweaty. He pulled a few yellow strands of fake hair from his face.

"Did you lose a bet?" I said.

"As a matter of fact, I did."

Taylor and Tyler were across the room, slapping their knees and laughing so hard they could barely breathe. 


...then hit me up with all the other ‘T’s ‘ in that family.

I gotta say, after that Epilogue in Walking Disaster. I am so up for a Trav book X amount of years down the track. All grown and ... well if you haven’t read Walking Disaster. I shall not spoil.

  1. I think this was a story that really needed to be told. And I'm really glad Jamie decided to tell it! I must admit I agree with you.....I'm really glad that Jamie focused on the fire in this book--it really was a bit too glossed over in the other books.

    Awesome review. Can't wait until Trents book. I want a WHOLE series on the Maddox boys!!!

  2. Fans really love this book. It sounds like Travis' "redemption" is complete because of this. Someday I'll read this series...
