The third novel in Jamie's fantastic Mayhem series reunites lead guitarist, Shawn, with a girl from his past who is determined to show him what he's been missing.

From the moment she saw Shawn Scarlett perform at a school talent show, Kit Larson has loved two things: the guitar, and the gorgeous, green-eyed boy who inspired her to play. But one careless night in high school shatters her hope of ever being more than a notch in his bedpost.

Six years, two bands, and one mostly mended heart later, Kit s about to make her rock star dreams a reality as the new guitarist for Shawn's band, The Last Ones to Know. He may not remember their reckless night together, but Kit has never forgotten ... and she's determined to make him eat his heart out.

The release of their new album means a month cooped up on a tour bus, sleeping inches away from the ridiculously sexy musician she's never quite gotten over. And as Kit gets to know the real Shawn not Shawn Scarlett, the rock god, the player their attraction becomes too hot to resist. But the past is paved with secrets, and when they finally surface, Kit could lose everything: the band, the music, her dreams ... and Shawn.

I happily discovered Jamie Shaw as a brand new writer in "Mayhem" the first book in her rockstar series. I wrote a really positive review mentioning that although she was a very new writer she would hone her craft in books to come. I went on to read "Riot" the second book in the "Mayhem" series. I loved seeing the improvement and growth of her writing and how her characters got richer and more dimensional. I was so connected with the characters I anxiously waited for "Chaos" book 3 to emerge. I was wonderfully surprised when I was given a copy of Chaos pre-release from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. I admit I started the book and finished it in one evening. The characters just reached off the page and dragged me into their lives. I was totally engaged and could not put it down. We meet Shawn, our hero originally in book one as Adam's best friend and sometime smartass. In this novel he was still a bit of a manwhore enjoying his time being a young man with new fame. I thought he was a hoot and I was looking forward to learning more about him. Then in Book 2 we again saw him and got just a glimpse of our heroine Kit. This novel is Kit and Shawn's story. It starts back in high school and stalls. JS does a great job of letting us get into Kit's 15 year old headspace so we understand the angst she lived. I have to admit living that angst for 6 years was a bit much. I know at 15 you feel things deeply but by the time you are 21 and have had college and numerous boyfriends/hookups since, you would think it would have been a fond/or not so fond memory. I think holding to angst so tight and not letting it go even a bit is what caused me to rate this book 4 instead of 5 stars. Shawn..oh my poor Shawn, he just isn't quite sure what is happening. I absolutely loved sharing his feelings and connecting with him so much deeper in this novel. I do have to admit that Kit is the star of this book. She is one of the coolest main characters I have read in this genre. She is a true rock chick and I adored her. Her brothers were fantastic and so confrontational I could see the interactions clearly in my mind. Kale, Kit's twin is a wonderful sub story in this novel and watching him come into his own sexuality was like watching a bud finally bloom. It really touched me. The writing was sharp, the plot line engaging and clear but the characters is what makes this book stand tall among it's peers. I admit I not only want to read Mike's story *desperately* but also I would love a spinoff series of Kit's brothers. They are all unique individuals on their own but a real belly laugh when they all are together. I have to admit I have a real soft spot for Ryan and would love to read his story. As you can see I have nothing but really great things to say about this novel. I'm delighted to watch this author grow with each new book and I know we readers will be enjoying her "voice" for many books to come. I give Chaos a shiny 4 star rating and a t'irla recommendation to make this one of your top summer reads. This is part of a series but can be enjoyed as a stand alone novel as well. You really need to meet this group of rock-stars and their rock chicks!

Perhaps you know the feeling of putting your head on a guys shoulder and having him wrap his arm around you pulling you close to him? That's the feeling I have when I think of Chaos. I've loved both Mayhem and Riot so I was so excited to get to Chaos! Adam. Joel. So love them. I was curious about Shawn though. He's kinda the heart of this band, taking care of things and keeping things rolling along towards their goals. But that's not really who the angry Kit remembers from six years ago. He wasn't a great guy then. And now, he's trying his best to take the signals from Kit. Both of them holding back a little and keeping truths quiet. And Kit? She's strong and following her dream even if it puts her so close to the guy she gave her heart to though he never noticed. Fighting her attraction to save more heartbreak, she rocks the guitar and becomes a rock star in her own right. Really love her strong sense of self. The girl can rock some combat boots like no other. I loved how these two grown to know each other. The roof - Kits and another, the kitchen on the bus, a certain guitar, a laundry mat, and so many more -- all draw these two together and I loved that. Little pieces of truth that are pushed away by these two combine to make some serious misunderstandings. And I hurt for them both. And when things burst into the light, there was hurt on both sides. The rocker trope combined with the characters I loved from the first two books, this one is a must for anyone who's read the series or anyone who just loves good romance!

Another great read in my new favorite romance series. I love Kit and Shawn! Jamie Shaw really knows how to write a book but make it not seem like a book - it all feels real, if that makes sense. I've said it before and I'll say it again - anything she writes, I'm buying. It's not even a question. Adam and Rowan are still my favorite couple, but Dee and Joel, and Kit and Shawn are right behind them. I love everything about this series - the humor, the romance, the drama. If it's Jamie Shaw's goal to give her readers new book-boyfriends, she has succeeded 100%. I love the guys in the band The Last Ones to Know, and every character that Shaw creates! *I also love Kale's story in this book. It's important, and Shaw gives it just the right amount of attention - Kit is still in the spotlight, but Shaw makes sure that the story isn't just about her and Shawn, and she incorporates Kale's story so effortlessly and seamlessly. Like I've said about a thousand times already, Jamie Shaw's books are so believable and fun to read. If you haven't read her stuff yet, you're really missing out. I need Mike's book now!!

To say this series just gets better with each book is an understatement. Chaos was just as addicting as the first two books. The characters a rich and full of life! You become so much apart of their story that you can't but the book down. Kit and her brothers are fall in love with them all. If you like rock star books this series is a must read! It is going to be hard to wait for Mike's book!

My Thoughts: Talk about reeling you in from the start! The very beginning of the story is when Kit and Shawn are younger and share an intimate moment together. Right after, they're separated and don't see each other for years. That's when Kit joins Shawn's band. She knows who he is, but he doesn't seem to remember her. The two of them have a rocky start since Kit knows so much about him and she keeps giving him attitude. After some time, they become friends and eventually something more. It's super sweet AND super sexy. But considering the past they have, the truth is bound to come out and Kit knows this. What she isn't prepared for is how it does. Can they find a way to move beyond the past? Chaos is an awesome rockstar romance! You're gonna be laughing and smiling and giddy all at once. Kit and Shawn have this amazing chemistry--as friends and something more (not to mention all the moments where it's below the surface). I enjoyed it all the way through, could barely put it down to take care of stuff in real life, it was just so captivating. Definitely interested in reading the rest of the Mayhem series and more by Jamie Shaw! My Rating: Very Good

Kit is finally getting her dream of playing in the band she has loved since high school. The only catch the boy she has loved since she was 15 is also in the band. Chaos is the story of Kit and Shawn. You will laugh till you cry. This is a must read if you love hot rockers! Note this is not a stand al one book. Books in order are Mayhem, Riot, and Chaos. You will be (im)patiently waiting for book 4 of this series.
