My story isn’t unique.
Isn’t rare.
Which is, I guess, what makes it so sad.
The story about a girl who falls in love with the wrong man, lured by tender gazes, devoted promises and gentle touches. The gentle touches disappear and she’s held captive with ugly insults and brutal beatings.
It’s common, this story. My past.
I can’t change the past.
I wouldn’t even if I could.

Anne is amazing. Really, that is all this review needs to say. But since that doesn't tell you anything about the book and blah blah... here goes.

This is one of my favorites of Anne's. I thought the heroine, in particular, was incredibly engaging, the hero was just the right kind of overprotective alpha, the cast of side characters had a lot to add to the story. To be honest, it gave me old school KA vibes in a lot of parts which was awesome.

4 1/2 slow burns!

This book isn’t like other books written by Anne Malcom yes it has a very protective possessive hero, and a strong smart kind heroine and yes (yay) we get previous character’s in this book to enjoy but the book is a beautiful slow burn done very well. Though Lance and Elana don’t jump in to bed together right away and they both have to work and wait for them to get to be together the wait is very much worth it and we get to see these two amazing characters not only fall in love

"I couldn't decide whether he actually was a rude asshole or just super mysterious and damaged. The hotness was distracting."

Another addition to the addictive Greenstone Security series. The author knows exactly how I like my #AlphaAssholes and gives it to me every time. They're broken and badass and oh so bossy...sigh. 🖤

Warning! This story will raise your blood pressure in more ways than one. You'll want to embody Rosie and take matters into your own hands one minute and then be ready to to
Another case of it’s me, not you, so I’m stopping this one at 34%. This book is highly rated, so clearly I’m in the minority on this book. I really like the author’s writing, so I had hoped to overlook the things that were bothering me, but sadly it’s just not working for me :(

The constant long internal dialogue (even in the middle of conversations) is so overwhelming and often unnecessary. The repetitive use of the word ‘frickin’ (is that even a word?) combined with the heroine’s pov written in
***5 ‘Something Damaged. Something Beautiful.’ Stars***

Talk about all kinds of slow burn goodness!

This book had my heart bouncing around all over the place from start to finish. I laughed, I swooned, I got all teary and sniffly and I really wanted to gut someone with a spoon. And when I got to the end, I really wished there were more words to read because I didn’t want to say good bye to these characters at all.

I adored Elena and Lance. These two definitely kept me on my toes. Elena is so st

My story isn’t unique.

Buts raw, real and heartbreakingly beautiful.

This is the fourth book in the GreenStone Security Series.

So its been a couple days since I finished this book and this book left me speechless. Not many books can do that but lately Anne Malcom has been doing that. I don't like picking favourites but this book by Anne has simply become one of my favourites. Not just the storyline but these characters.

Speechless. Mesmerized. Spellbound. Chaos Remains by Anne Malcom was every one of this feelings and then some more. I cannot believe the sheer power and brilliance of her words. This story hit each of my weak spots. Raw. Gritty. Honest. Dark. Twisted. Edgy. Intense. My heart was gone from the very first chapter.

I love reading about broken people. Because these stories talk about inner strength and fighting spirit. In my own dark times I gather inspiration from them as these people remind me that

Gahh! What can I even say about this book? I’ve read all the books in this series and the interconnected series. They’ve all been amazing, so I expected nothing less with this one. Chaos Remains packed in loads of feels that had me tearing up throughout the book. I just love, love, LOVE a broken badass. And don’t even get me started on a strong heroine. The ultimate combo which Anne delivers every. single. time.
Chaos Remains is actually a part of three series of books that I recommend over and

I wish I could give this book ten stars! It is truly the best book Anne has ever written in my opinion! I laughed, I cried, my heart broke and then was put back together. Lance and Elena just became favorite couple!! I can’t even put into words how magnificent this book was!!

I absolutely love Anne Malcom. The way her mind works will just blow you away, and I love every single bit of it. I have been a fan of hers for awhile now, and even though I love each and every story, she just keeps getting better and better. She blows me away with her talent.

In Chaos Remains we have so much feels going on. I do not want to give away any spoilers but I will do the best I can. I feel for the female lead so much. She is such a strong character and tries so hard to take care of he

Sometimes in Chaos comes Peace

Things that make me happy:
1. Coffee/Wine (You will always find one or the other, and sometimes both at the same time, in my hands)
2. Books
3. Magic
4. My tribe of friends, including my amazing son
5. Anne Malcom

Okay to be fair, there are other things too, but I was trying to make a point here. I could go on and on about how amazing this incredible author is but I figured adding her to my top five list would show how extraordinary she is. Part of that reason is this ser

I received an ARC of this book from the author and I voluntarily reviewed it. Thank you Anne Malcom!

Where do I start... This book had me in tears only 2% in. TWO PERCENT. That's not a lot of time for the author to take you in their grasp and make you feel emotion. It takes great skill to do that, and Malcom has that skill. She is a true wordsmith, and this is her proof (and there are many more proofs).

Firstly, I want to tackle the subject of fear. It is the underlying constant in this whole enti

Lance and Elena.

I have read this authors books from the beginning but recently I've found a lot of the characters seemed the same and they were very OTT so for that reason I nearly didn't read this book.

It was amazing, really amazing.
It is really funny although it deals with some difficult issues as Elena is running from an abusive ex.

She is a single mum with the most amazing, funny son. He is hilarious. Watch out for the scenes with his backpack.

Lance is a brooding, almost silent Hero. He liter

Chaos Remains is part of the Greenstone Security Series and is book 4. This is by far one of my FAVORATE books by this author... I LOOOVED it.

This is book is a very slow burn, very emotional, and completely heartbreaking. Lance and Elana are absolutely perfect. Two very damaged souls coming together and healing as one.

Lance to me kind of reminded me of Bull's character from Out of the Ashes.. dark, broody, kept to himself, and so very damaged.. and Elana, she was a breath of fresh air. With e

Chaos Remains is the fourth installment in the Greenstone Security Series by Anne Malcom. If you haven't read the Greenstone Security books yet I highly recommend getting on that pronto! 

With everything life has thrown at Elena, she is still one positive, light hearted and caring woman and parent. She is a woman that puts her child ahead of everything within her life including eating. She is running from evil and fear and is trying to keep her son safe from all of it. Lance has a pa

I have had this window open for most of the day trying to think of an appropriate review to write. I have loved each of Anne's books in a different way. This one is no exception. It is a slow burn of 2 people who have been damaged by their past that made my heart hurt for them.

"Elena was all kinds of dark right now, she needed some light. Some peace in this chaos."

Anne has a way with words that I feel deep down in her characters. She has a way of describing their demenor, how much they fight fo

I can’t even begin to explain the pain, angst and pure gut wrenching emotion this book exhibited whilst I was reading it. I was kicking myself because whilst I was busy with reality, I somehow managed to miss this book. But no matter, I have rectified that situation and I’m glad I did. Anne Malcom continues to prove why she is a boss when it comes to these kinds of stories.

I’ve absolutely missed these guys, not just the Greenstone hotties, but the Greenstone ladies. Lance and Elena’s story abso

Yay! Anne Malcom’s back with a new dark and sexy story and I loved it. I run either hot or cold with some of this author’s works. Some are amazingly mind blowing and some just meh. I’m so happy to be able to say that this story was wonderful. The heroine is strong, a survivor, and completely relatable. The hero starts off gruff and a bit of an ass, but you just know he’s got some awful baggage. I’m completely in love with Lance now though. It’s a wonderful slow burn romance - somehow this may be ...more

This is book four in the Greenstone Security series. These are so good I highly recommend you start from book one and get stuck in.

Although this is a slow burn I think this pulled out more emotions than
the other books in the series.

Elena and Lance. Wow you sure had me on the edge of my seat.

Fantastic read that I couldn’t read fast enough yet at the same time I didn’t want it to finish. So so good. Read the Greenstone Security now.

Ok so I just finished reading this. My mind and heart are truly spent! I knew id love it but after reading Lance's story I can't say enough how beautiful this was. I loved Nathan to the point that I would catch myself just laughing at his cuteness. Loved this book so much I finished it in 3 days. I called it beautiful but yet it wrecks you all in the same way. ...more

Definitely one of my favorites!

“Ever since then, ever since I’ve been around you, I don’t feel afraid like I used to. I’m afraid of what I feel for you. It unsettles me. It terrifies me. Because of how powerful it is. A feeling that shouldn’t be that powerful considering you barely speak to me.”

Elena and Lance story was magical in a rotten monstrous kind of way if that possible! Clearly with Anne everything is!

Chaos Remains: Greenstone Security (4)

What a book. This was one of 3 series by Anne Malcom, that intertwine. I chose to read them together. Got couple out of order but this I feel made an excellent last. Elena had left an abusive marriage with her young son changing their names, but now he'd found them, he threatened her, punched her in the eye, then the next day took their 4 yr old son from school. She got lucky when she stumbled into Greenstone Security. They got her boy back and warned him of

Another fabulous book

This is another fabulous story from Anne Malcom who is one of my go to authors since I first read about Gwen and Cade. She has a very unique writing style which, in this book, I felt was slightly different.
This was Lance and Elena's story who are like chalk and cheese and are thrown together when her son gets kidnapped and she wanders into Greenstone Security. They both feel something between them even as they clash in her despair and their obvious differences.
