Enjoyed it, Loved it, Devoured it!

Wow, K.F just doesn’t disappoint! I was looking forward to this story because Cassie is a fun and crazy character, introduced to us in the Growing Pains series. Cassie’s chaotic personality shines through right from the beginning and the anticipation of meeting her match is sparked. A match well worth the wait…

Cassie is skeptical of her ability to pull off her role as gay friend Peter’s girlfriend at his family gathering and that skepticism shoots through the ro

pretty good character development, and relatable leads, but sometimes I got annoyed reading it. The wine tasting trip was too long winded and seemed inconsequential to the plot. Same with the part where he meets her friends. It wasn't terrible overall, but it wasn't amazing either. Just ok.

OH MY EVER LOVING BISUITS I needed a good read! I absolutely LOVED this book. K.F. Breene is AMAZING and I love how realistic her stories feel. It's like you are one of the group just sitting back and watching their shenanigans, and in this book there are definitely some shenanigans!

This is a spin off from the Growing Pain Series, which if you haven't read them you better get on that train, but Love & Chaos can be read alone. This is Cassie's story after the series and she is put into a stic

I received an ARC from KF Breene and I was so happy that I did, If you are looking for a Romance (NOT erotica) novel that is NOT part of some long series this is it! This was so good to me that it made me want to start the Growing Pains series and learn all of the characters stories. You did NOT need to read the series to enjoy this book though.

I loved that this brought up some real issues - being yourself in the face of rejection, having your past hold you back from your future, family strife a

***ARC for an honest review***

I loved Love and Chaos. Cassie is one of my favorite characters in general, so I was super excited to learn that she was going to have her own story. I was not disappointed.

I think it's fair to say that Breene knows how to write a fantasy male character. I adored Jace. He was alpha without being over the top about it, a nice guy, hot, tattooed, hot. Did I say hot? Right, caring and is all about taking care of the people he loves. Seriously, the dude was perfect. Of

I read the first 3 growing pain books quite awhile ago, this is the 4th book but it is also a stand alone.
I really like the fact it actually can be read two ways. It should appeal to people like myself who love continuing characters and those who want to read a book then bang! it's done. This is nicely written for those two audiences in one book. The story line is one I am starting to see more of theses days. KFB addresses the continuing challenges of the gay community, and how a persons fa

I've read a lot of K.F's work now, she never fails to please. Love and Chaos is certainly no exception.
Her characters are always so refreshing, down to earth....normal, a trait you don't often find in romances. Cassie is just fabulous, the girl every woman wants to be and the woman every guy wants to...get to know "better" and Jace, her perfect man; tattoos, looks, personality, motorbikes....**sigh**.
The storyline, although not completely unfamiliar, is still unique enough and realistic enough

Can Love trump prejudice
Gay friend (Peter) and his boyfriend (Marcus) asks Cassie to pretend to be girlfriend to Peter for family get together. Oldest Hot brother Jason (Jace) and Cassie hit it off but she’s “taken”. Jace just got rid of a cheating fiancé. But Cassie doesn't know that so she thinks Jace is off limits as well. Peter ends up spending most his time with sister-in-laws and Cassie plays the sports with the brothers and spend even more time with Jace. Peter is afraid to come out to f

I received an ARC copy of Love and Chaos and, as with all of K.F. Breene’s book, I instantly fell in love. If you want to read a true romance that will make you laugh out, has some hot sex scenes (but doesn’t rely on sex to create the story), with lots of strong personalities to keep things fast paced then you will love this story as well.

Breene creates characters that are real, so full of personality and I really relate to each of their struggles on some level. She makes me laugh, cry and love

If you read the Growing Pains series you must read this one. This is the story of Cassie, i loved her in the Growing Pains series so i was really happy to read her story. It is standalone and very interesting. Dialogs betwen Cassie and Jace are so good, funny, sexy... Oh and the sex...well.. read it and you will see it for your self.
In this story Cassie helpes her gay friend Peter whit familiy issues. His family doesn't know that he is gay, so he brings Cassi to play the role of his girlfriend.

Too long

This book was definitely wordy. It was meant to be a quick read but turned into a week of trying to finish because of the schizo main lead. She had some serious ADD issues. Jace was so amazing I loved him. All the male characters were a trip. Perhaps because I tried reading book one and DNF'ed it and then skipped to book four I missed a lot of the dynamics in the friendships. Either way the scenes of drinking were just beyond obnoxious. The only redeeming scene in the book is when Peter

So happy about this book! Loved getting to see Cassie in a starring role, and getting into her head. Such a great story with tons of laughs, but enough drama to keep it interesting. This series is what really made me connect with K.F. Breene and her works. I couldn't be happier for this addition to the series. Just a fantastic read, and couldn't have asked for more with this one. Love Cassie and Jace...such complimentary personalities that just work together. Plus all the steam between ...more

This book was really really great.
I need more of Jace and Cassie!
The epilogue just wasn't enough.
I haven't read the other books in the growing pains series so I don't know much about the other characters but it so didn't matter.

Jace was just the best everything about him I loved.
I can only hope this author would put out a novella or something more of these two. I could have read about them forever.

Just the type of book I love. Low on drama, smooth fun loving relationships. It really was wo

I fell so hard for this book, Loved Cassie's attitude toward life. Jace was immediately struck by her beauty and her allure for life. Their chemistry was HOT. This book is just simply amazing. I loved every minute. Tons of laugh out loud moments. Love K.F.s wit, it shows through out this book. I now have a new book boyfriend (Jace, omg)
Thanks K.f. For another amazing book. I look forward to what's next.. If I could give Love and Chaos more than 5 stars I would.. Highly recommending this to all

I was lucky enough to be given an ARC of this book.

It took me a couple of chapters to fully get into the book and to warm to Cassie, but once I did I could t put it down. Jace is seriously hot, and the chemistry between him and Cassie is evident from the get go. Peter is a sweet guy, and I would have liked to have seen more of his relationship with Marcus.
As you'd expect from K.F.Breene there are some smoking sex scenes, but these added to the story.
The ending was perfect, and I did end up carin

Once again K.F. Breene brings her stellar writing ability to one of my favorite characters. Cassie has such a strong personality, and Jace suits her perfectly! When you add in the conflict with Peter and his family, the formula produces a funny, sexy, can't-put-down book. I can't wait to see what she does with the "friends"!

Ahhhhh! LOVE! CHAOS! Put them together and you get this fabulous book that consists of a great love story full of quirkiness. I fell in love with Cassie from reading K.F. Breene's Growing Pain series (which if you haven't read yet, GET TO IT! The first book is FREE!) and I couldn't help but fall for Jace. Seeing their story evolve was delightful! I can always count on K.F. Breene!

First i will say that the Growing Pains series has been my favorite series so far. With that being said, Love and Chaos was a fantastic addition to the series. There was still the sarcastic, whitty banter and realistic situations. Goofy characters always make my reading experience more enjoyable.
I highly recommend this book.

Wow! Highly recommend!! This story had me laughing so hard I could not put it down once I started. Cassie agrees to help her gay friend, Peter, by pretending to be his girlfriend for a week long family gathering. Then she meets his family and with them, Peter's very HOT brother, Jason (Jace). The chemistry between the characters in this story makes it an awesome read!!!!

Great side story to the Growing Pains series! It gives you more information about Cassie, the sister. If you haven't read Growing Pains, you should! You don't have to read that series to understand this one but it helps and adds to it!

An endearing story that had me loving Jace. Cassie is just the perfect, fun loving, down to earth person that Jace needs. I was also curious about Peter and dying for his story. Thankful this story was not short, I enjoyed the anticipation to the end.

What a fantastic book! Cassie's story was a lot of fun to read and the banter between the characters made the book go by before you know it and wish it wouldn't end. I really enjoyed the first three books in the series but loved that Cassie had her own story. I would recommend this book to anyone!

As I settled into the vibrant city, it quickly became apparent that, while I thought making and editing films was great fun, I lacked cinematic genius. For that reason, my career path quickly changed direction. My next goal was a strange childhood interest, conjured at the ...more
