Welcome to my tour stop for Girls Love Travis Walker by Anne Pfeffer. This is a New Adult contemporary recommended for ages 16+.  The tour will consist of reviews, with a few guest posts and interviews.

Girls Love Travis Walker by Anne Pfeffer
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….


5 - Heartfelt - Stars!

First of all, I'd like to state that the guy on the cover is a perfect Travis! He is exactly how I imagined him to be throughout the whole book. Ain't he hot?!

I am not going to lie, I am finding it real hard to write this review . The synopsis doesn't reveal much and I hate writing spoilers.

How was  Girls Love Travis Walker? It was everything I had hoped for...AMAZING! I don't have one bad thing to say about it and I wouldn't change a thing! It was wonderfully written, had me pulled in from the start, and I fell in love with Travis. Not only with Travis, but also with the girl he falls for -hard-who has a very kind soul.

This book pulled at my heartstrings like you wouldn't believe. Travis has a great head on his shoulders, but its like the universe is playing a cruel joke on him. No matter how hard he works or how positive he stays, the cards are always stacked up against him. His life is falling apart all around him and he is left dealing with it all on his own. Without realizing it, he doesn't need to suffer alone, but he keeps everything hidden within. He is terrified of losing the girl he loves if she finds out about his circumstances. Not only does fear consume him,  but shame as well. Fear and shame become his best friends. But Travis continues to put one foot in front of the other and tries not to left life beat the crap out of him until he can no longer get back up. This is what I admire most about the young man.

This book also touched me  on a personal level. I have been in, somewhat, the same position Travis found himself in as a teen. And more so, my older brother. My brother dealt with way more than Travis or me, combined, and at a much younger age. I want to give the author, Anne Pfeffer, a huge thank you for writing this book. This is the first book that I have ever read on this subject matter. I hope its not the last.
