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 love all Amo’s alpha

"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

The plot is solid!! Very

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!

IPLH was absolutely incredible. I loved the entire

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

"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!

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.

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 this book down.

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,

5 Stars The Queen of Dark Romance Does It Again!!!

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.

Dove is quiet. She speaks only when she has something to say. Life has left her little to be upbeat

Be warned: You need to clear your schedule before you open the cover of this book. With nothing more than 26 letters, Amo becons you into the pages, then grabs you by the throat and yanks you head-first into the opulent, terrifying, sexually-charged, dazzling, dangerous, multi-layered world of Midnight Mayhem. In Peace Lies Havoc is one of the most exciting, imersive, original books I've ever read. Or should I say, experienced. I give it five black and lilac-striped stars!

“All things sinister taste like honey.”

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.

I genuinely had no fucking idea what was going on in this book. I was both turned on and terrified of the Brothers of Kiznitch but I desperately wanted to

"His voice is like silk, soft enough to coax, but strong enough to wrap around my throat and choke me."

The mysterious, and decadent worlds this Author creates is among my very favorite to disappear in to, but this....this upped the ante that had my brain scrambling, my heart beating a mile a minute, and my whole body on FIRE. The unknown is only hidden in the shadows by the sheer basal attraction that can't be denied, yet that love/hate ignited like gasoline and a thousand matches. King and Dove

„Welcome to Midnight Mayhem. We are not a circus, we are not a carnival, and the only thing that you should be afraid of losing tonight, is your sanity…”

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

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 ...more

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!

”Well, well, we’ll, look who’s going to be sleeping... with monsters.”

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.

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.

So where to being with this review. I'll start of by saying I was very much looking forward to reading this book. I'm a fan of Amo's work and this book is literally all over my timeline on FB, plus I stalk Amo on the regular.

I went into this blind having only seen a few snippets here and there, not sure what to expect other then Amo is known to be quite the story teller. None of her books are what I would call main stream and that's part of why I love her as an author.

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.

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 authors sleeve. She'll never

Wow wow wow Amo has done it again and completely blew my mind this is one of her best books I’m completely in love with the world she’s created and she has once again shown why she’s our queen.
Her words will suck you in from start to finish and will leave you wanting more.

The Brothers of Kiznitch are alpha sexiness overload! I never read a book that made me bite all my nails off and scream way to many times out loud! This is that book! 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!

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!

"That's the thing with King and me. We write our story in invisible ink, so no one else can read it."

If you are an Amo Jones fan, then you are already prepared for the #MindF***KAlert that always comes with one of her stories. In Peace Lies Havoc definitely falls into that category and will have your head spinning with all the amazing characters, secrets and surprises.

In her usual brilliant way, the author put me inside the head of Dove, but she didn't know what was going on half the time so I






I don't remember when was the last time that I was reading only the one book for three days because I'm usually reading three books at the same time.

This is the first book I've read by Amo Jones and I loved it!!!

It was a crazy ride.

And I didn't want to finish it.

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.”
