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.

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.

Shawn and Kit... yep they rocked it. I LOVED THEM!!!

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???

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

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 don't know how I ended up getting the third book of the series, but it c
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.

Shawn and Kits story was funny, sexy and awesome!!
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

Kit Larson is about to make her rock star dreams come true. Since fifth grade, when she was inspired by a middle school performance to pick up the guitar, she’s loved only two things besides her crazy family: the guitar and Shawn Scarlett. After an amazing audition, Kit’s been selected as the new guitarist for Shawn’s band, The Last Ones to Know.

Kit’s ready to seize this opportunity—as long as she keeps her heart out of things. Shawn broke it years ago—he may not remember Kit but she remembers e

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

In my combat boots, torn-up jeans, and loose tank top, I'm severely overdressed standing behind bikini-clad cheerleaders who wouldn't know the difference between a Fender and a Gibson even if I smashed both over their bleach- stained heads.

I can never stress this enough: I'm deeply in love with the characters that Jamie Shaw has created here. Especially with Leti and Mike (I was just now debating myself out of choosing a quote from one of them to start this review because they are both so aw

*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

First there was Adam. Then there was Joel. And now we have Shawn! Chaos is the third book in the Mayhem series that revolves around the band The Last One to Know, and the one I was most looking forward to. I do have to say, Riot is my favorite because I connected a lot with Dee, but Chaos is definitely a close second.

I wanted Shawn’s story as soon as I met him in Mayhem , and then my excitement grew once Kit was introduced in the second book. I was dying to know what was going on between

I have been looking forward to Chaos since Mayhem first released. (Mayhem is the first book in this series but each book can be read as a standalone.) Shawn is the lead guitarist in the band The Last Ones To Know. He and his band mates are looking for someone to fill a spot in their band and the only person who was good enough was Kit Larson. Shawn was her first love and he was the person who inspired her to pick up a guitar for the first time. But they had a history and Kit wasn't going to let ...more

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

What a freakin' amazing book. If you could see me when I finished reading it you would understand why. I am a huge Mayhem fan, then to follow up with Riot I crushed so hard for Joel, but now I think Shawn is my main man. Where could this book go wrong, nowhere. Jamie has a way to writing that draws the reader in from page one. You don't suffer from trying to push from page to page hoping you will love it, it just happens right away.

Chaos takes us back to when Kit and Shawn first met in high scho

A story about right timing and things happening, or not happening, for a reason...

Another great story by Jamie Shaw, that sucks you right in and doesn't let go until you read the last word, leaving you craving for more.
Kit, the main female heroine, is a stubborn young woman, who grew up with four older brothers, and learned to be always on alert. Being a strong person and a true fighter doesn't stop her from overloading her head with self-doubt and constant over-analyzing of everything Shawn, th
Irene Sim
Shawn and Kit have a past. And it's not good. There is a lot of tension between them, partly because they dont know each other's motives and partly because there is a lot of chemistry between them. Watching them creating songs and finish each other's thoughts and trying to avoid putting labels on what they have together was as beautiful as frustrating..
OMG, I love Shawn so much <3

Chaos it's the third book on the Mayhem series. It's a story full of strong emotions, super funny moments, serious moments, hot moments, and obviously super hot rockstars! I laughed, I cried, and I felt every single one emotion in this book! It's amazing how Jamie can tell a story and make you feel it like your own. You did it again, Jamie! <3

I love this series so much! It keeps me smiling with each book. I loved Kit's perspective and her experience in the band. Kit and Shawn's history is complicated, but their present could be magical - and at times it is. It's sweet and romantic and downright sexy, but they have to figure out what they want, why they keep their secrets, or all they will have are a couple of broken hearts.

We get to meet Kit's brothers - who add a lot of humor to the story (and maybe a new group of characters for a n
