Well, in true Amo fashion, I’m sitting her at the end of In Peace Lies Havoc just staring. I don’t want to pick up another book. I don’t want to do anything. I want to stare at my kindle and hope more chapters appear, because I’m so in love with not just Kingston and Dove’s story, but the whole Midnight World she created.

I am head over heals in love with Kingston and all the Brothers are just to die for. I l

"I’ve lost my life to four men and they haven’t even killed me yet."

I live for these characters! The Sons of Kiznitch own my heart! In Peace Lies Havoc is Amo Jones at her very best!

Here's what I loved:
The characters!! These guys and girls have already imprinted on my heart!

The angst level is perfectly balanced! My anticipation grew after each successive chapter. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see how the story would. It’s a fast paced read that reads really well

OMG!!! When Amo Jones said she is bringing her readers a whole new series, she definitely did not pull her punches. Good Lord - In Peace Lies Havoc (IPLH) was FIYAHHHH! Kingston and Dove were PHENOMENAL. Their story was filled with crazy sexual tension, shocking plot twists and the high octane - adrenaline pumping writing style we have come to love from this author. I LEGIT die for this Midnight Mayhem world!! This is Amo Jones at her finest!

If you've ever read one of her books, you know things aren't ever what they seem, so you start trying to figure shit out from page one. You will try and fail to spot plot twists coming, and you won't actually breathe easy until you reach the end. If it's a series, you can forget that sigh of r

How do I even begin to describe the the absolute awe and love I have for this book and this author.

This book was deliciously dark, twisted, sensual, angsty, deviant, and completely captivating. The way the world of Midnight Mayhem came together. Each intricately woven piece creating this unique masterpiece that readers can lose themselves in and escape to. A madness that I would devour time and time again, because Amo’s words are worth losing my sanity over and over again for.

"Welcome to Midnight Mayhem. We are not a circus, we are not a carnival..."but what Midnight Mayhem is, is one hell of a ride! In Peace Lies Havoc the first standalone in the new Midnight Mayhem series by Amo Jones is the most creative most unique story I have ever read! The writing is so magically descriptive I pictured every scene as clearly as if I was a ticket holder in the front row.

In Peace Lies Havoc is EVERYTHING!

Sinfully sexy and deliciously dirty, it’s Amo Jones at her best. It’s twisty and dark, everything that I come to love in an Amo read. I’m hooked. Addicted, and jonesing for more of the Midnight Mayhem world.

Dove, King and the rest of the characters now own me. Every word.. Pure perfection. All consuming from the beginning to the end.

As usually Amo Jones has me wishing for just one more page. Her words slay me and keeps me hooked. I couldn’t put thi

You bet your booty I’m getting that tattooed. Right up my alley.

Alright so here’s the deal: Amo Jones writes stories that have the ability to twist you inside out, force you into a smoking habit, and have you questioning if you’re just too dumb to figure it out or if she’s just THAT good.

She’s that good.

The author's mind is a dark and twisted place and I want to live there with her. She created a whole new world with characters I both loved and loved to hate. Off-the-charts intensity that kept me captivated until the last word. And that beginning...I was completely in awe by the end of the prologue. This is a book that you won't want to put down.

Amo Jones has created a new genre - Amorotica. There's nothing that compares to it. It's edgy, erotic, enticing, and I never want this new Midnight world to end! IPLH is A Jones' BEST writing to date! In true Amo-fashion, she has created a world that is oh-so easy to escape to. It holds every fantasy, gorgeous being, and magical and suspenseful scenes that you just do not want to disappear or end. I did NOT want this book to end! Not only did I fall completely in love with Dove & King, but w ...more

It’s so intense your almost afraid to turn the page! King & Doves chemistry is off the charts plus all the twist and turns have you a mess! You never know what’s gonna happen!

Are you ready for a little Mayhem? Amos books should come with warning labels: Will cause you bouts of insomnia, hot flashes, wet panties and the need to be choked. This right here is Amo at her absolute best, reading this just solidifies why she is Queen of Mind Fuckery!! She has crafted a multi-layered tension filled ride full of all the twist and turns that you can handle and some you can’t, keeping your ass firmly planted on the edge of your seat.

Umm.. I want more. As it's always the case when Amo Jones writes, it's a wild and crazy ride and you can't even expect the unexpected because Amo's worlds are just that original and unique.

ARC generously provided. All thoughts in this review are my own.

I don't know how she does it. I read The Elite King's trilogy about a year ago and my mind was blown by the world that was created. The lore and the back story.. I seriously thought this was a one off. The ace up this autho

It’s safe to say that no one brings my deepest, darkest fantasies to life like Amo Jones! Her brilliant, twisted crazy mind is so freaking beautiful I just can’t get enough! Some may say she can go too far but I say f@ck that take me all the way! She pushes boundaries, takes the reader on a twisted wild ride that they will never recover from and she does it all with a beautiful smile on her face and seriously THANK YOU AMO; THANK YOU!

Welcome to Midnight Mayhem. Please do enjoy yourself. We only ask of you one thing, keep your sanity intact.

Midnight Mayhem is not a circus nor a carnival. There are no animals nor are there rides of the mechanical nature. Oh no, Midnight Mayhem is your every nightmare brought to life and your darkest most sinful obsessions made tangible. Mind Tricks. Stunts. Deceit . Power. There is no limit. No forgiveness. Only the clock striking midnight and the mayhem that follows.

Amo fucking Jones. Insanely fancy mind and brilliant storyteller. She’s the only one who can create a story that has no right to exist in the real world, but which still amazes with its reality. The world of Midnight Mayhem has its own laws that do not apply to mere mortals. Like Alice who fell into a rabbit hole, you are sucked into a co

Bex (Beckie Bookworm)

Love this authors work, she's the queen of misdirection and mind games and I always know I'm gonna get one hell of a ride along the way.
This one, as usual, doesn't disappoint and is set in the world of Midnight Mayhem a travelling X-rated entourage of visual delights and mayhem with a very unusual recruitment process.
This was as intriguing as it was confusing, a totally unique read that I had no clue most of the time what was actually occurring.
With dark themes and blurred sexual boundaries, this had a major dark edgy vibe to it

In Peace Lies Havoc is all consuming. Kingston and Dove will have you on the edge of your seat. You gotta love the push-pull going between the two. The heat between them is scorching but that fire is easily doused by the coldness King emits towards Dove. Amo writes stellar characters that not only dominate the pages of the books but your headspace even once you have finished reading. You are left with one major book hangover as you wait patiently for the next book in the series to release. In ty ...more

Can I please give this book more than 5 stars because it 100% deserves it. This was one hell of a wild ride, just as I thought I’d figured out what was going on, Amo Jones just sat there laughing at us all and instead dropped a bomb into the mix, completely throwing everything off course and making me question my sanity.

In Peace Lies Havoc is a phenomenal story with mind blowing Midnight Mayhem madness. I'm in awe of Amo's incredible mind.
Entire Midnight Mayhem world and Kiznitch Brothers shocked me, penetrated into my core but I crave nothing but more of them.
Everything what I thought I would find in this story wasn't even close to what it turns out to be. If you think for a second you can figure out Amo's next move, think again!

Speechless. That is how I am left after finishing In Peace Lies Havoc by my reigning queen of mind fuckery, Amo Jones. The magic she weaves into the storylines, makes you addicted to her words, falling in love with the bad boy asshole, rooting on the heroine who takes names and kicks ass later.

In Peace Lies Havoc will have you believing just that. When th

Amo Jones is a USA Today & Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author, totally winging this author thing (she's probably doing it all wrong). She likes cake, loves wine, and her religion is magic (Slytherin). She's a profound work-a-holic, but when she's not writing, you can find her chilling with her kids & Husband at the nearest beach, with a cocktail in her hand.

“Beat snorts, leaning into her bag that’s near her ankles and dropping a book onto the table. She points. “Join the club.” My eyes fall on the cover, the bright green title catching my eyes first. The title is simple. MANIK. The cover image is of Aeron’s chest, but where his face is supposed to be, there are ravens flying out.
“Wow! You have a book?”
She waves me off. “I didn’t write it, but yes. It’s the story of how Aeron and I met. I’m all for creepy stories. I wouldn’t recommend this author, though. “She drinks too much, procrastinates a lot, and is easily distracted.”
