Welcome to my tour stop for Girls Love Travis Walker by Anne Pfeffer. This is a New Adult contemporary recommended for ages 16+.
To nineteen-year-old high school dropout Travis Walker, women are like snowflakes--each one different, but beautiful in her own way. He can charm any girl he meets, and yet down deep he fears he'll always be a loser like his jailbird father. As the landlady threatens to evict him and his sick mother, Travis takes a job he hates and spends his evenings picking up girls at a nearby night spot. When he enlists in a teen program at the local fire station, he finds out he’s amazing at it. Then he meets the smoking hot Kat Summers, enlists Kat’s friend Zoey to help him woo her, and falls in love for the first time ever. But he keeps the details of his life secret. His girl will never love him back if she knows the truth about him….
Travis Walker is a 19 yr old boy who hasn't always had the easiest life. It has been cruel and quite unkind to him in general. He has to be the man of the house in a way. Not only is his father in jail but his mother is sick and jobless. But what's a young kid to do when he can't seem to stay afloat the the boat we call life?
Obviously the title gives us some perspective on Travis. All girls REALLY do love him but Travis isn't much of the long term kinda guy...if you know what I mean. Who can blame him? He's gorgeous and women have a hard time saying no. That stuff gets old though; incomes Zoey. She's a great heroine to look up to; she's brings a side to Travis I love. The chemistry between the two is sizzling hot but it's not explicit.
I loved this story so much and I think other readers will love it just as well. It's great to see such great characters come together and overcome the trials and tribulations that were set upon them. Girls Love Travis Walker was not what I expected; in a good way.
I can't wait to see what other books the author has to offer us.
