Blurb: 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.

And a teaser from Chapter 8 to hold us over:
Shepley walked out of his bedroom pulling a T-shirt over his head. His eyebrows pushed together. “Did they just leave?”
   “Yeah,” I said absently, rinsing my cereal bowl and dumping Abby’s leftover oatmeal in the sink. She’d barely touched it.
   “Well, what the hell? Mare didn’t even say goodbye.”
   “You knew she was going to class. Quit being a cry baby.”
   Shepley pointed to his chest. “I’m the cry baby? Do you remember last night?”
   “Shut up.”
   “That’s what I thought.” He sat on the couch and slipped on his sneakers. “Did you ask Abby about her birthday?”
   “She didn’t say much, except that she’s not into birthdays.”
   “So what are we doing?”
   “Throwing her a party.” Shepley nodded, waiting for me to explain. “I thought we’d surprise her. Invite some of our friends over and have America take her out for a while.”
   Shepley put on his white ball cap, pulling it low over his brows so I couldn’t see his eyes. “She can manage that. Anything else?”
   “How do you feel about a puppy?”
   Shepley laughed once. “It’s not my birthday, bro.”
   I walked around the breakfast bar and leaned my hip against the stool. “I know, but she lives in the dorms. She can’t have a puppy.”
   “Keep it here? Seriously? What are we going to do with a dog?”
   “I found a Cairn Terrier online. It’s perfect.”
   “A what?”
   “Pidge is from Kansas. It’s the same kind of dog Dorothy had in the Wizard of Oz.”
   Shepley’s face was blank. “The Wizard of Oz.”
   “What? I liked the scarecrow when I was a little kid, shut the fuck up.”
   “It’s going to crap every where, Travis. It’ll bark and whine and … I don’t know.”
   “So does America … minus the crapping.”
   Shepley wasn’t amused.
   “I’ll take it out and clean up after it. I’ll keep it in my room. You won’t even know it’s here.”
   “You can’t keep it from barking.”
   “Think about it. You gotta admit it’ll win her over.”
   Shepley smiled. “Is that what this is all about? You’re trying to win over Abby?”
   My brows pulled together. “Quit it.”
   His smile widened. “You can get the damn dog…”
   I grinned with victory.
   “…if you admit you have feelings for Abby.”
   I frowned in defeat. “C’mon, man!”
   “Admit it,” Shepley said, crossing his arms. What a tool. He was actually going to make me say it.
   I looked to the floor, and everywhere else except Shepley’s smug ass smile. I fought it for a while, but the puppy was fucking brilliant. Abby would flip out (in a good way for once), and I could keep it at the apartment. She’d want to be there every day.
   “I like her,” I said through my teeth.
   Shepley held his hand to his ear. “What? I couldn’t quite hear you.”
   “You’re an asshole! Did you hear that?”
   Shepley crossed his arms. “Say it.”
   “I like her, okay?”
   “Not good enough.”
   “I have feelings for her. I care about her. A lot. I can’t stand it when she’s not around. Happy?”
   “For now,” he said, grabbing his backpack off the floor.
