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…. (via Goodreads)


This is one of the most realistic New Adult novels I've ever read. No kidding. It just felt so honest and real.

Yes, Travis was such a flirt. But then he became like that for a reason. I'm not even saying that what he did was right. All I'm saying is the fact that he became what he was for a reason. Unlike with some other characters I've read, I cannot truly understand why they act like that. As for Travis, it was truly understandable.

Everything that happened in Travis' life seemed so common in a lot of people. That was what made it feel so realistic. Also, there's more to Travis than being a sort-of douchebag and suddenly falling in love. His whole life was practically a wreck and falling in love was like in the least of his expectations but it came and from then on, he felt the need to strive more and achieve more. 

His passion for being a firefighter was so admirable. It's one of those things you wish everyone will realize. I mean, not to be a firefighter but something else even. Even after all the struggles he encountered, he still wanted to be that something who helps other people. I also like the fact that he didn't give up for his Mom. Damn, I wanted to strangle his Mom. No, really. She was the adult. He didn't even finish high school then she was telling him to keep that apartment. I was so frustrated. But then I realized that his Mom was sick and tired.

The romance even didn't disappoint. Travis thought that it's all about looks but then he realized there's more to it than just the outside and that is, personality.  It was kind of funny when he actually realized he was falling in love. Like it was never meant to happen or maybe he just didn't really think he could experience it. But he did and it was really honest. Just so romantic. Oh, and you'll be surprised as to how love came to him. Just when he thought he was actually smitten by a girl, someone made him feel it even more.

Girls Love Travis Walker is a nice NA novel. A lot of people can actually learn one or two things from Travis' life. Failures, hopes, forgiveness and love are all here. You'll never be disappointed and yes, you'll swoon because Travis was really a gentleman and a nice guy.
