If you are into immature winey female that while throwing tantrums state that they are adults and should be treated as such this book is for you. This book could have easily been cut in a third and still would have been too long. It's just the same irritating story over and over again. If you are waiting for Olivia to grow up and for the book to finally turn the corner and get better you are wasting your time.
If you are looking for Drama and uncertainty...this is for you. This book gave my whiplash! The fact that Olivia can go from over the hills in love to hatred in a 10 second period made me be uncertain of what emotion to feel from her.
No, I will not buy TK Leigh again. Book 1 was intriguing but book 2 and 3 were repetitive craziness.
The narrator was okay but I felt like the author thought I was stupid. Repeating the same things over and over just makes me want to fast forward. I ended up putting the book in a high speed read to get it over with!
I feel like Cam was unnecessary. The whole Las Vegas party was built up as important and then a huge let down. I also felt like the Prologue was unnecessary.
I wanted to choke both the main characters Alex and Libby. So much time wasted on secrets and lies. They both are madly in love with each other, but yet they stubborn and pig headed
This is the 3rd book in the series must read or listen to the others to understand this one.
i loved the whole series!! Alexander is too hot and soooo sexy! couldn't get enough of this story! read all 3 books in this series in one weekend! thank God for audible.
I likes this series from the start, the second book was a bit of a disappointment to me but I was hoping the third would hold a strong conclusion and it did not disappoint! I loved this book, the author did an excellent job keeping me on the edge of my seat and keeping me guessing. I love when you think you know what's going to happen or what's going on and out of nowhere the author twists things in a way you never imagined. Can't wait for more from this author in audio!
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
They've been through Hell and it's only going to get worse in this emotionally-packed, messed-up, tangle-filled drama Olivia and Alexander find themselves in when the shocking secrets that Alexander has rightly or wrongly withheld. But they slowly get revealed leaving Olivia dazed, shocked and heartbroken..... sadly, more than just once.
Meanwhile the mysterious enemy is laying his evil trap by recruiting the help of the greedy and the spiteful and when his trap is finally sprung we get to see just who the mastermind behind the terrible web of lies and deceit is..... and what a mouth gapping shocker that was.
It's got so much heartache and angst but there's also buckets full of sex, suspense, twists/turns, passion, romance and edge of your seat nail-biting tension when things take a bloody, dangerous and vile turn. Told from various POV's but mainly the H/H's and the Narrator did a wonderful job in injecting all the necessary emotions that every bitter-sweet scene called for and brought to life each character.
Worth a credit? This isn't an easy listening, lovely, feel-good, sweet romance.... no it's a cruel, brutal and emotionally draining listen. It's also a well-written, heartbreakingly intense plot about love and betrayal so when these two lovers get their much deserved HEA ending all you can do is sigh with relief that their tumultuous love story has reached it's beautiful end. A non-stop listen and a credit well used.
This book was beyond amazing! Gorgeous Chaos is the final book in the Beautiful Mess trilogy. It gave me everything I was looking for to end Olivia and Alexander's story. There was drama, suspense, angst, trauma, friendship and love. You will laugh, cry, scream and have heart palpations when you read this, but it is so worth it!
Audiobook Addict. It's all about the Listen. Mostly Romance, but I do branch out a bit. Reviews are my honest opinions-popular or not.
The narration was good. See my review of Book 1 for more detail.
Book 3. Alex is still keeping secrets. For MONTHS. Even after being advised, warned and even subtly threatened to spill ASAP or lose everything. The repetitions of 'I want to tell her the truth right now…. weeks later….I should tell her the truth… weeks later….Alex, you need to tell her……. weeks later…..Maybe I'll tell her….etc.' are just obnoxious at this point. Alex and Olivia are both as dumb as a box of hair. I now hope they stay together because they deserve each other. I just hope they don't have kids. With 2 sets of total moron DNA, they'll just end up politicians. Seriously, Cam and Chelsea dodged bullets with these idiots. Simon is back in play, and I'm considering rooting for him to succeed. The public music therapy sessions at the pub are absolutely ludicrous----like bar patrons are just SO interested in how Olivia feels. ("Hey guys, let's go to that bar where that whiny chick brings everybody down all the time," said nobody…ever.) The ridiculously hot, rich supposed "psychiatrist" doesn't recognize that Olivia is an unstable waste of skin and is inexplicably unable to move on when he can have anyone he wants? C'mon! He barely knew her prior to "falling in love" with her.
Whatever..there are just SO many "I call bullshit" moments in this trilogy. Does Alex man up and tell the truth prior to it being revealed by someone else? Of course not. Does Olivia handle the truth like a grown up, or even a mentally stable human being? Of course not. Do I want to track down the author's less-than-stellar editor and explain the difference between "infer" and "imply" prior to yelling at her for wasting hours of my life with this unnecessarily long, meandering, babbling, horrifically draining story of 2 incredibly useless people, complete with cliffhangers? YES! (Bumping to 2x speed just to get through with 6 hours left to go. I am proud of my perseverance to have lasted this long at only 1.25 speed.) Holy crap, the narcissistic cow can make even a memorial gathering all about her. Will someone PLEASE put a bullet in her? (sigh) SO…Does it all work out in the end? Well… yeah. I guess so, but sadly, I no longer care.
In the event that I have been too vague, this trilogy was a chore to get through. I, however, do NOT blame the author, and believe it or not, I look forward to future writings. The writing itself is good--there's just WAY too much that needed to be cut and polished for this to be a finished product. This would have been an absolutely stellar single novel IF you cut the entire second book, rewrote Alex to where he grew a pair and was a believable SEAL/security expert and rewrote Olivia to have a small amount of impulse control and to be strong enough to handle the basic struggles of life prior to the last couple of chapters of book 3. Where were the editor and publisher, on vacation? How on earth did they allow this to be produced as is? With a rewrite and some serious editing, this has the potential to be ONE, 12-ish-hour, fabulous, standalone novel. Regrettably, in its current state, it's just a total waste of money/credits and 31 hours of your life.
