Girls Love Travis Walker - Anne Pfeffer http://divainpyjamas.blogspot.com.au/2013/08/girls-love-travis-walker-by-anne.html
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.
