Yeah, I did n't expect to read this and there 's a bit of a tal that I 'll tell when I write the full review.
This was about what I expected it to be- a bit on the cheese side, had some offenses to offer to the table ( misogyny chiefly, but even very few type of casual racism ... fun times, not.) But believe it or not, ravis was probably more tame in this retellin than he was in either Beautiful Disaster or Walking Disaster ( did n't mean he lacked annoying points) .Abby on the other hand ... I 'll talk about it in the full review.
There 's a nove, it 's about the shotgun wedding that Travis and Abby have in Vegas.
But the awful thing about life is that you could say you will never touch another book in a series or by a specifi author, and somehow it comes back to bite you in the bum when you actually end up in a shotgun scenario of your own where you do the complete opposite because you 're drawn, in all places and spaces, within a bookstore.
The story takes place after the fire in " Beautiful Disaster "- where Travis and Abby escape the devastation and on their pat to Vegas to have a " shotgun " wedding.
bby marries Travis under false pretenses.
Hanna wanted to marry Travis for that?
Abby, filled with anxiety over the whole measure of things, decides to have the shotgun wedding in Vegas so that she can save Travis from getting arrested on behalf of the events of the fire.
Jessica does n't tell Travis that he might be suspect wanted for questioning in this whole ... situation.
Even when Trent points out the tupidity of that plan, Abby 's like " Do n't tell me it 's funny. " =_____= Travis does suspect Abby 's hiding something, but mostly he thinks she 's on edge about the dinne and might get cold feet.
He even considers an attractive Chinese girl and thinks ( paraphrased) " If I were my old self and not with Audre, I would totally bang this chick. " Yeah ... nah, he has n't changed at this point of the stories.
It 's a pre-written letter to Travis 's wife about her " special " boy and telling Abby in so any words to take care of him.
But honestly, there 's no way that Travis 's mother would know how her fathe would turn out to be, and I was n't getting the motivation for his wife to write to his wife here.
So Travis never knew that Abby ... really lied about her easons for marrying him so quickly.
The narrative fastforwards about a year later some time after that to show Abby and Travis having a traditional wedding in the Carribean.
Randall is noted around this time to have his anger issues under wraps because he " has n't punched anybody " in a while according to Abby.
I took issue with the very few presentation of the storylines of color here- what with the aforementioned Chinese girl and the presentation of a limo driver who addressed Travis as " Mistah Maddox ", but then spoke without a dialect for the remaining phrase.
