Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire

My Review

Jamie McGuire is an author I’ve known about for a long time. I read Beautiful Disaster when it first came out and loved it. I was in the midst of a fairly busy writing career of my own when her Walking Disaster (Travis’s POV) came out, so I never got around to reading it until now. One thing about this story that blew me away is the similarities that Travis Maddox’s backstory has to my Tristan White’s backstory in “The Venture Capitalist.” Both young men lost their mothers at an early age to cancer. While reading the prologue of Walking Disaster, it made me go back to The Venture Capitalist and read Tristan’s backstory again. It’s uncanny how great minds really do think alike sometimes, and we tell a story that has similar plot points, but in a totally different way.

Unlike my Tristan, Travis is a wild man. In fact, he meets Abby during college, so he’s very young, but very intense in his feelings for her. Tristan has intense feelings for Keisha, but he’s very polished in his pursuit of her. Travis pulls out all the stops and then some. OMG, this guy was like a bull in a proverbial china shop. From the moment he gave Abby her nickname–Pigeon–I was a goner! And my the introduction to his brothers. There are Maddox Twins–Tyler and Taylor! Much like Tristan and Nathan, my twins, these Maddox Twins are scorching, and not only because of their career as Firefighters. Then there’s Trenton, the tattooed tattoo artist, and Thomas the FBI Agent. So, Walking Disaster has reeled me in, so I’m currently binging on the rest of the Maddox Brothers stories.

So far, I’ve completed Trent and Cami’s story, Tyler and Ellison’s story, and Thomas and Liis’s story. Each story shares more about each of the brothers and interweaves the overarching story of the Mobster that Thomas and Travis will eventually take down. I’ve even read former FBI Agent Scott Trexler and Darby’s story. Jamie McGuire writes stories about hard-loving men, who pursue their women in such a dogged fashion, you can’t help but root for them.

So, read the Maddox stories in the Beautiful series. You’ll be glad you did.


How much is too much to love? Travis Maddox learned two things from his mother before she died: Love hard. Fight harder.

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.

Only Between Us by Mila Ferrera


Last semester, Romy escaped from an abusive relationship with the guy she’d thought was the man of her dreams. This semester she’s putting herself back together, determined to reclaim her passion for art and for life. When she signs up for a painting class at the local art co-op, the possibility of passion becomes very real — in the form of her teacher, Caleb. Both mysterious and seriously hot, Caleb bares his soul on his canvases, and Romy’s fascinated by what she sees.

Caleb is just trying to keep his head above water. Caring for his traumatized, unstable sister is getting harder every day, and his paintings are so dark and bleak that no one is buying. Teaching classes at the co-op is no longer enough, and now he’s going to have to sell more than just his art to the wealthy, sex-starved women in his classes. But when Romy comes along, she makes everything more complicated. She sees the truth in his paintings — a truth no one else has realized, until now.

Romy and Caleb might have a real shot together — one that could heal them both. But when ghosts from their pasts re-emerge, determined to keep them apart, will they be strong enough to hold on to each other?

Blake by Victoria H. Smith



A chance encounter in rural Texas leads two strangers to a love over thirty years in the making.


Her trip across the country led her to me, my town—my booth on my lunch break and I never forgot her. I never forgot our conversation or her… taste when I’d been fortunate enough to have it.

She had me in a world where she was mine and, even though the experience of her had only been for a short while, I took that memory into the rest of my life, Anita… the girl who spoke of dreams.

She reminded me of my dreams and that it was okay to have them. I made those desires into reality years later, after a fallen marriage and a lifetime of hesitance, but never once did Ann leave me.

I never thought I needed anyone when the girl with talks of dreaming finally made it back into my life over three decades later, my family and the strong boys I raised into men all I needed. Anita sure proved me wrong, because not only did I need that woman, I lived for her once I had her back in my life.

My sudden heart attack may have brought us back to each other, but our history…

It gave us both a second chance.


“Romance Novels paint beauty in colors more charming than nature, a describe a happiness that humans never taste. How deceptive and destructive are those pictures of consummate bliss!”
