You all know by now that i love stories with musicians, but this particular band "The last ones to know" are pretty amazing and one of my favorites!!!

They are not just a band, they are a family... A very bonded family and i like that!!!

My fangirling mode it started in Mayhem...

First i fell in love hard with reckless Adam freakin' Everest...
Then i caught by surprise from Joel, who i never thought that he will ever get into me!!!
And now, after all this time, it came this sweetheart to shake me up.
Schade Marmelade. Der dritte Band war leider viel schwächer für mich als die ersten beiden. Ich kam einfach nicht mit Kit klar, ich hab ihr die toughe Rockerbraut nicht abgekauft. Außerdem hab ich zwischen ihr und Shawn keine wirkliche Chemie gespürt (erst auf den letzten 100 Seiten). Shawn mochte ich zwar an sich, jedoch fand ich ihn im Gegensatz zu Adam und Joel aus den ersten beiden Bänden etwas blass gezeichnet. Der Schreibstil war trotzdem wieder sehr angenehm und die letzten 100 Seiten moc ...more

I love books that break the mold just a little bit, especially in the name of Girl Power. CHAOS is like that. I'm always happy when authors put girls in a non-traditional position that sets them up to surprise and delight their male counterparts. And, maybe even make them a little mad. That's especially fun.

After the prologue, which sets the stage for Kit's and Shawn's present-day feelings for one another, Chaos backs up the timeline a bit and overlaps with RIOT (Mayhem #2). It opens w

I wanted to read Shawn's story from the first pages in book 1 Mayhem, sadly to get to his story I had read book 2 Riot, which was a complete flop for me, so *fingers crossed*, book 3 as in Chaos, God help me, let this book be better than the previous ones...


p.s. Yeah, have I mentioned how I love rockers? No? Well, I do. *wink*
so, let's give this a try ;)

and unfortunately, this was slightly better than book 2 and much worse than book 1, so that leaves Mayhem the best story in the series...

Jamie Shaw does not disappoint.


What beautiful freaking chaos.

OMG! Ich liebe diese Reihe einfach 😍😁.
Solltet ihr sie tatsächlich noch nicht gelesen haben: Lest sie!!! 💕
Dieses Buch hat mir besser gefallen, als der zweite 😁 vielleicht war er sogar so gut wie der erste 🤔. Shawn war einfach toll und perfekt 💕.

Ich kann es kaum abwarten den letzten Band zu lesen 😍😁.

This book will make you

Oh, how I love never ending CHAOS!!!

But really, Kale stole my heart, and I want so much more of him.
And of course I love Leti. Can you send him my way, pretty please???

Jamie Shaw ist wirklich meine absolute Schreibgöttin 2017 im New Adult Genre, und ich fühle mich wie zuhause und geborgen, wenn ich ihre Bücher lese!!! 💝
Die Geschichte um Kit und Shawn war für mich etwas schwächer, als seine Vorgänger, einfach aus dem Grund, weil Shawn viel zu selten zu Wort gekommen ist!
Diesmal ist man als Leser die ganze Zeit in Kits Kopf, und verfolgt größtenteils ihre Denkprozesse.
Ich bin allerdings eher ein Fan von Konversation, von Schlagabtäuschen, Diskussionen und Streit

Great addition to a great series.

Chaos, Book 3 in the Mayhem Series did not disappoint. It was so good I literally went through the gamete of emotions. I laughed, I cried, I got pissed, I was elated, I had chills and well I just plain rocked. If you haven't read this series it is definitely one to pick up.

Let's just say Kit was so Bada$$ that I couldn't help but love her. She was so tough yet vulnerable. Her sass and spontaneity were refreshing. What I loved most about her was that she was true

Vor sechs Jahren hatte Kit auf einer Party ihr erstes Mal mit Shawn Scarlett, doch danach rief er sie nie wieder an.
Als sich für Kit nun die Gelegenheit bietet, als Gitaristin für die Band The Last Ones to Know vorzuspielen, ergreift sie sie sofort. Selbst wenn es bedeutet, mit Shawn zusammen zu spielen. Es war überhaupt Shawns Talent mit der Gitarre, der sie zum spielen gebracht hat und sie bewundert ihn immernoch. Aber kommt sie darüber hinweg, dass er sie wohl vergessen hat?

Where do I begin...CHAOS WAS FREAKING AMAZING!!! Each book, I learn more about the characters and love them even more! I seriously just want to crawl inside the book and hang out with the member of The Last Ones To Know!!!

A hero in a book is only as strong as his heroine counterpart and Kit was amazing!!! Kit and Shawn have a lot of history and when they re-united, there was a lot of pent up resentment, misunderstandings, and feelings. If they would have just got it all out in the open from the
I looooooved this. Like I want to hug it, loved it.

Kit is an awesome MC. I love the way she handles her older brothers. She's a kick ass guitar player who isn't afraid to stand up for herself. Unless it has to do with Shawn. The two of them have serious history and it was interesting to see how it all revealed itself. There were some things I didn't see coming and a few I expected, but all of it was entertaining to read.

I thought I was going to love Shawn's story, and rate it at least a 4 star. However, I feel like Kit ruined that for me when she walked into his adult life -and they both kept secrets and pretended not to know/remember certain things. Too many lies, pretending, and secrets. Who can have a good relationship based on those foundations? It would make anyone constantly guess, second guess, and be insecure about their feelings and the other person.

I think this book would have benefited from Shawn's

Shawn and Kits story blew me away! I laughed, I cried, I swooned, all within the first few chapters...sigh...this book gave me some serious feels. If you love a good series that sucks you in from the start and never lets go, then this is the series for you! And that includes this latest story Chaos. I loved Kits passion and drive and determination and Shawns honesty and straightforwardness even when it came to admitting his faults. Their love story is definitely complicated but in the end legend ...more

I don't know how Jamie Shaw does it, but her books are just THE most amazing books I have ever read! She dominates this genre. Just like the first two books, this book was no exception, it was absolutely mind-blowing! Kit and Shawn were a really spellbinding couple, and the fact that I basically read this in one day says a lot. The story had a constant dramatic, romantic, emotional and wonderful storyline that I was totally addicted to. I can't even say how much I enjoyed both the progression be ...more
Devoured like a cupcake with a cherry on top.

Being a lover of Rockstar romance reads each book in this series is a breath of fresh air. I loved Riot and Mayhem before with the angst,laughs,drama and great characters.

Loved Kit she was such a kick ass character it's always good reading about a fearless female although her insecurities shone through with Shawn the boy she had loved and admired for so long, she was once bitten twice shy.

Ich fand Shawn in den ersten beiden Bänden so großartig! Hier ist die Geschichte irgendwie hinter ihrem Potential geblieben und irgendwie hätte ich mir jemand anderen als Kit an seiner Seite vorgestellt. Dennoch ein tolles Buch & ich liiiiiiebe die Larsons!!

Πολύ ωραία και η τρίτη ιστορία της σειράς Mayhem. Μας έσκασαν λίγο η Κιτ και ο Σουαν αλλά όταν έγινε η ένωση το αποτέλεσμα ήταν εκρηκτικό. Και δεν θα μπορούσε να είναι διαφορετικό με την τρέλα που κουβαλάει η Κιτ , αφού είναι καθαρά γονιδιακό το θέμα. Όποιος έχει διαβάσει το βιβλίο και έχει γνωρίσει την οικογένειά της, αντιλαμβάνεται σε τι αναφέρομαι. ;)

Rating: 4 / 5 stars

This book was a lot more fun than Riot, which isn't saying much when you considered how depressing Riot was.
Kit and Shawn were... well, they had their fare share of angst (but it wasn't as much as Dee's and Joel's). I think I did like Shawn a bit more for not thinking with his dick and trying to fool around with all the groupies.

I don't know how to feel about this book. I had such high expectations for this book, especially since Kit had been a girl that had been wronged by

Ich behalte meine Wertung nach dem Reread bei: 4,5 Sterne!
Ich mag Kit (auch wenn sie zwischendurch echt einfach nur strunzendoof ist, aber wer ist das mal nicht und zum Glück hat sie ja Leti, der das Nachdenken für die übernimmt) und die Perspektive von einem Bandmitglied ist auch toll, man lernt die Jungs ganz anders kennen als in den ersten beiden Büchern oder im letzten. Shawn ist mir definitv weit sympathischer als Joel es in Band 2 gewesen ist, und auch Adam hat er ein wenig voraus.

When Kit first knew Shawn Scarlett, it was in middle school and he was her inspiration for music and playing the guitar. In high school she had a huge crush on Shawn, and so one night she goes after him, trying to be bold and daring and shares a night with him, loses her virginity and ends up with a broken heart. Now its been six years, and Kit is talented and she has a chance to make her dreams become a reality. So she tries ou

*ARC courtesy of publisher via edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

Rockstar romances are my new guilty pleasure, and should be yours too. After having read Kylie Scott's Stage Dive series, I immediately fell in love with the trope. Though, pretty much, the rockstar trope is usually a good girl-bad boy romance, Chaos has its own pretty little twist in the usual trope and made me want a rockstar for myself.

This time, the heroine isn't an
