Chaos (Mayhem #3) by Jamie Shaw
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 on 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.
Chaos is the third book in the Mayhem series and is about Shawn and The Last One To Know's newest rhythm guitarist, Kit.
The prologue turns the clock back six years and explains Shawn and Kit's past and when the first chapter begins it has still backtracked a little from when Riot ended. I wasn't sure I would like Shawn after how he treated Kit when she joined the band in Riot but I liked Kit instantly.
Reading Chaos completely changed my opinion of Shawn and I loved the two of them together. We also get to see more of Leti in this book, which I loved because he's one of my favorite characters in this series and we were introduced to Kit's four awesome, overprotective brothers - one of which hits it off with Leti (but I won't say which one!).
Kit acts all tough and strong on the inside but the reader sees that behind the walls she's erected flashes of the vulnerable teenager she was still crept through.
The plot moved well and I waited for the inevitable moment where Shawn and Kit's past would come to light and OMG that part was perfect! I was laughing and embarrassed all at the same time.
Overall, this is possibly my favorite book of the series so far. I didn't want to put this book down and found it easy to finish the 380+ page book in about a day and a half. This series is fantastic and definitely a must read for fans of rock star romance and romance in general.
