Girls Love Travis Walker by Anne Pfeffer Review Tour & Giveaway

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 loves women. He has a body made for worship and just his smile can bring women to their knees. While he can have his pick of women, Travis barely has a roof over his head. He can't afford the rent and eviction is looming. He is a nineteen year old high school student, repeating his senior year... And failing. His father is in prison and his mother won't leave the comfort of her bed. Life is hard being Travis Walker. 

Needing to find full time work, Travis temporarily leaves school to start a meaningless heavy labor position, but it isn't enough. On his break between shifts, a stroke of luck brings Travis to the local community center, housing day care for children, and a soup kitchen for the homeless, or those down on their luck. Entering a weekend voluntary junior firefighters training position, Travis is starting to feel that maybe his life is worth something after all.

Kind hearted and effervescent Zoey doesn't want to change the world, just to brighten the lives of her local guests, seeking a warm meal and a friendly ear. Travis is undeniably sexy, but his warm, sensitive side lured her in. Currently in a one sided, unfulfilled relationship, Zoey is torn between taking a chance and protecting herself from the likes of Travis. Travis is slowly falling for her, while his world is crumbling.

Things have never looked so bleak, when Travis is evicted, he moves heaven and earth to secure his mentally ill mother a bed at the women's homeless shelter. Living on his car, with no job, no future and eating from dumpsters, will he inevitably lose Zoey as well?

Girls Love Travis Walker begins where most typical, bad boy themed contemporary romances start... But that is where the similarities end. Travis isn't a bad boy, he loves women but wont allow himself to become attached, it's an escape, a chance to forget and experience a deluded form of love for those few moments. 

He is only nineteen, but has the weight of the world on his shoulders, his mother being ill, two months behind on their rental payments, some days he can't afford to eat. But Zoey quickly becomes the bright spark in his life, and what begins as a fragile, intense friendship, soon turns into a tender love, something Travis has never felt before.

Well written, entertaining and tragically beautiful.
