The title says it ALL! The girls really do love Travis Walker, but how can you not, after reading this book! After not graduating with his class, he is now 19 years old, and trying to finish his senior year. Since, his father is in prison, and having to work to support his mom, i.e. pay rent, pay bills, and “try” to keep food on the table. While is mom is ill, and not capable to work. Going to school, is just on the back burner for now. After, the school helps him to get a job, he is excited, because maybe now, he can get caught up on the back rent that he owes.  He does not have a problem getting girls, he can just go to the club, and instantly pick up women! He has all the moves! When he first see’s Kat, he wants her so bad, but she doesn’t make it easy. When he meets her best friend, Zoey. Everything changes.  I couldn’t help to feel bad for Travis, that boy cannot get a break. It’s just one thing after another. And He thinks that he will turn out just like his dad. That boy has a heart of gold! I definitely recommend this book!

Girls Love Travis Walker by Anne Pfeffer is a fantastic book. It is a heart warming story and had my attention from the very beginning.  Travis Walker is a nineteen year old handsome young man whose life has been turned upside down. His father is in prison and mother is sick. He is trying to take care of himself and his mother as best as he can. With his mother being sick and not working, Travis has to be the man of the house and figure out how to pay the bills, keep food in the apartment and a roof over their head. They are financially struggling to keep ends meet. He decides to drop out of school so he can find a full time job and bring in a paycheck to be able to pay the rent and bills.  Travis’s difficult journey has begun. He has a very long road ahead of him. Will Travis be able to stay strong and help him and his mom get through their situation?    As I was reading this book, my heart was breaking in pieces for Travis and what he is going through. I could feel the rollercoaster of his emotions. Anne Pfeffer is an awesome author and she has done a fantastic job. It is the first book I have read from her and I am looking forward to reading more of her writing in the future. I definitely recommend this book to my friends.

Received the book from the Tour Host for an honest review I loved this story! And the main character Travis Walker, in real life I would have admired him and have the utmost respect for him. Although the name of the book gave you the idea that you will come across a man that is into women, the plot will bowl you over. Yes, there are women who falls madly in love him, are crazy about him, even tells lies about him to boost their own egos, and yes he likes them as well. In the process he scores many warm nights in their arms but walks away with no thought of them again. It sounds typical male many women would say, but that was not the main focus of the story.  The main plot will grip your heart, leaving you helpless at times because you can not help him with his continues troubles. Taking care of a sick mother while his world falls apart. Trying to do the right things but back fires in his face with catastrophic results. You see how his selfish attitude turns into sacrifice, laying down his own comforts and life to help the people who needs it the most. Young, strong, determined and proud he had all the capabilities to move forward but lacked in support from supporting characters and trust that cause him much heart ache. Believing he was like his father, that is a loser, gambler and prison inmate. Infatuated with the firefighters he met, after a rescue attempt right in front of him, he enrolled into a program to secure his future and you see how this young man blossom into a mature adult. Befriending a young lady Zoey, who worked at the Community center, helping her in many ways through out the book and you are part of the beautiful romance that developed between them. But it was a long road to travel, a difficult road that left a few tear marks on my cheeks and in the process of evacuation, loosing everything he owns you learn more about him as a person making his character believable and sincere. Zoey's character was also strong, an independent young woman with a heart of gold, supporting him the best she can but at the end his pride almost cost them their relationship.  Fast paced and well written this story will keep your attention till the very last page. Highly recommended to all readers with a love for the unexpected within a romance.

I have to tell you, by the end of the book I think I was in love with Travis WAlker.  He was a pretty amazing character and was so sweet and caring, if a little skewed up.  But honestly, don’t the best characters tend to be screwed up? Anyway, back to the book.  Travis drops out of school to start working to help take care of his mom and keep a roof over their heads.  Along the way he starts getting further and further out of sorts, and just doesn’t know how to keep up. The writing and the story in this book were incredible and I devoted it in one sitting.  Seriously, I loved this book (which is why I gave it the 5/5! and trust me, that is rare!) Travis kept trying to be a man and take it all on and not trust anyone to help him.  But, I don’t think I’m giving too much away when I say that we all know how that goes. The most amazing thing that happens to him is Zoey.  Up until her he had been a player and hadn’t really settled down, but in Zoey he finds someone to ground him and help him get ahead, or at least start making a dent. I think the most real and true thing of rme in this book was the fact that this kind of thing happens all the time. People loose their homes, people live in their cars. People have to make choices about which bills to pay. It is a scary road and I hope that none in my family ever has to go through it, but unfortunately, we can’t see the future. I think this book portrayed this sensitive topic in an amazing and sensitive way. Bravo!

Everything about her makes Travis yearn for things he has never felt before. Travis sets out to woo Kat, but he keeps his life and past a secret from her because he fears she would now love him if he told her the truth. Anne Pfeffer spins as story about first love and second chances. Travis is gorgeous and his knows it, but even though his looks can get him girl after girl, he is lonely and nobody knows the real him. Kat really sees Travis, and she knows that he is not telling her everything, she just wants him to trust her. Will Travis tell Kate everything, or will he lose the only girl he has ever loved because he cannot face the truth. Girls Love Travis Walker is a fast read that focuses on the characters and their emotions. You can't help but fall in love with the real Travis. You will hurt with him, hope with him, and love with him. A great read! I was given this book in exchange for an honest review!

  I was all set not to like Travis since it seemed like he was going to be a perpetual one-night stand.  But then I found out he really wasn't.  Early in the story he comes upon a crash and calls 9-1-1, helps one man stop bleeding, and leads rescuers to another one who had gone over a cliff.  He was intoxicated with the rush when the firefighters went over the ledge and saved the man's life.  The firefighters were pretty impressed with him as well and invited him to visit the fire station.   Through a program they offered for high school students, he soon found himself really believing that he could have a future as a fireman, the catch was that he had dropped out of high school.  Now, he didn't drop out just because he was lazy.  His dad was in prison and his mom was sick so it was up to him to take care of her.  The only work he could find was during school hours.  The money he made barely covered rent and soon he was volunteering at a soup kitchen in order to bring home food for him and his mom to eat.  It was there that he met the girl that would change his life and his attitude towards dating.   I had a lot of respect for Travis, except for the fact that he didn't trust anyone and so wouldn't even let those closest to him know how down on his luck he and his mom were.  He had to hit rock bottom and not even then was he willing to ask for help.  I would like to read another book about Travis and see where his life heads after Girls Love Travis Walker.

Girls do indeed love Travis Walker, though for the first part of the book I had trouble figuring out why. He comes across as kind of a jerk, and at first it's difficult to root for him the way he treats girls.  Then something amazing happens. Or awful, if you think about it. Travis' world falls apart. He has to drop out of high school to try and keep a roof over his and his mother's heads. Money is tight, and no matter how hard he tries, Travis can't keep things from slipping away. His father is in prison, giving Travis just enough doubt to make him worry that he will end up the same way. His mother's health is rapidly declining, and the local free clinic can't even spare a doctor to look at her, the best they can offer is a grumpy nurse who keeps insisting it's just depression. The power gets cut off. The phone was already cut off. Their land lady threatens to kick them out every time she sees Travis. He's so far behind on the rent that there is no way he can even hope to catch up.  Travis has only two things that keep him going: the Fire Department’s Discovery Program, which is the first thing he's ever been really good at, and the girl he meets at the community centre.  As his life continues to disintegrate, those two things seem more and more out of his reach. The Discovery Program is only for high school students, and sooner or later they are going to realize that he's no longer attending school. The girl may spend every day trying to save the homeless and downtrodden, but she might not be so interested in dating one of them.  I'm not sure when, but somewhere in the course of the story Travis grew on me. And then he broke my heart. Have some tissues handy, because this story gets downright emotional towards the end.
