My book boyfriend #29 Travis from Beautiful Disaster

My book boyfriend is hosted by Missie @ The Unread Reader

The very irresistible but quite literally bonkers mad Travis "Mad dog" Maddox from Jamie McGuire's Beautiful Disaster is my book boyfriend this week.

Abby or "Pidge" as he calls her is the only girl not to immediately fall for Travis's charms and they become good friends but as their relationship develops Travis really falls for Pidge in a big way and they end up having an explosively volatile relationship.

Some Travis Facts:
He's a bare knuckle fighter.
He is a complete alpha male and women love him.
He's madly possessive with an explosive temper.
He's actually very intelligent.
He's got tattoos and a motorbike.

“I clinked my bottle against his.
“To being the only girl a guy with no standards doesn’t want to sleep with.” I said, taking a swig.
“Are you serious?” he asked, pulling the bottle from my mouth. When I didn’t recant, he leaned toward me.
“First of all…I have standards. I’ve never been with an ugly woman. Ever. Second of all, I wanted to sleep with you. I thought about throwing you over my couch fifty different ways, but I haven’t because I don’t see you that way anymore. It’s not that I’m not attracted to you, I just think you’re better than that.”
I couldn’t hold back the smug smile that crept across my face. “You think I’m too good for you.”
He sneered at my second insult. “I can’t think of a single guy I know that’s good enough for you.”   

“I know we're f***** up, alright? I'm impulsive, and hot tempered, and you get under my skin like no one else. You act like you hate me one minute, and then need me the next. I never get anything right, and I don't deserve you...but I f****** love you, Abby. I love you more than I loved anyone or anything ever. When you're around, I don't need booze, or money, or the fighting, or the one-night stands...”

“You can’t tell me what to do anymore, Travis! I don’t belong to you!”
In the second it took him to turn and face me, his expression had contorted into anger. He stomped toward me, planting his hands on the bed and leaning into my face.“WELL I BELONG TO YOU!” The veins in his neck bulged as he shouted, and I met his glare, refusing to even flinch. He looked at my lips, panting. “I belong to you.”

You NEED to read Beautiful Disaster it is absolutely fantastic, Travis completely made the book for me. Thanks to the very gorgeous tattooed Parker Hurley for being a perfect Travis.


  1. Even though I was not the bigger fan of this book, I must say that Travis had his moments of hotness.

    At the beginning I liked him a lot, mostly when he tried to get under her skin (or clothes or whatever, LOL).

    He is too aggressive for my type, but still hot I guess ;))

  2. Love that cover, this book sounds interesting. THat last quote in particular is amazing. Parker Hurley seems like the perfect Travis, he's gorgeous.
