Through good times, bad times, and times of war, Cole “Rush” Allen grew up in the Chaos Motorcycle Club. Along this journey, he watched his father, Tack, and his MC brothers fight, sweat, bleed, and die to steer the club to legitimacy. And they’ve got one more battle on their hands. A battle they have to win. But when Rush meets the woman who put herself right in the thick of it, he knows he has to stop at nothing to get her out.

The first thing that came to mind when the last word was spoken. I read the reviews before starting this book and was prepared to be disappointed. I am a long time KA fan (I’ve read or listened to just about everything she’s written multiple times) and have been pretty disappointed in the last few books she’s written. I’m very happy to say this book completely blew me away and is the best thing I’ve listened to in a long time. I will say it was not at all what I expected and yet it was the absolute perfect ending to the beloved Chaos series. For those who got irritated and/or may get irritated in the beginning when she jumps to Beck, keep listening (from other reviews that’s where they got frustrated and stopped listening due to the multiple POV changes in the beginning) she ties it all up in a neat little bow and it all makes sense when you get to the end. I will say if you’ve never read KA before, don’t start with this book. At least listen to or read Motorcycle man and the whole Chaos series and if you can bear it, the ménage story in loose ends or some of the book won’t make sense. For those of us who have read or listened to pretty much everything she’s ever written, I think this book was written for her biggest fans. Those of us who’ve continued to listen and read even though we make not like everything she’s done and some of her explorations, we’ve continued to stick by her anyway knowing what she’s capable of and hoping that the next book is the rare gem we can sink our teeth into and want to revisit it over and over again. I hope for all of you, as it was for me, this is that book. Great job KA, it’s been a while for me but you finally did it again!

Troy Brennan: Every Southie in Boston knows that name. The son of a dead mobster. The heartthrob with steel-blue eyes. "The Fixer" who can make or break you in this city. Oh, and my new husband. Sparrow Raynes: That's me. No one seemed to remember my name up until he barged into my life. But then he caged me. Kidnapped me. And killed every chance I had to run away from the place where we grew up.

Needed dual narration. A man doing the woman’s POV was a little weird. She’s done dual narration before, not sure why she didn’t this time. Would have made a good audio book great. The male narration was spot on. I’ve heard a few books with a female southie narrator in other Irish mob books, she would have been perfect and raised the narration to 5 stars.

It takes seven hours of audio to get to the point as to why Millie sent high away. Some of it was interesting but mainly it was agonizing and unnecessary. Once you get past the first seven hours the book is actually pretty good and is more classic KA. I’ve read most of her books and have also listened to the audio of most of her books. I am a huge KA fan, however, the first seven hours of this book are extremely disappointing. I just read ride steady and loved that book. I also loved the previous books in the chaos series, however, this one was more like some of her older books from other series that have loads of detail, except in this series the agonizing details aren’t necessary - they are bikers after all. After reading the crisp clear writing of the prior books in this series, I was surprised to discover that she self-Published this book and not through the publisher of the prior four books in the series and then it made sense as to why it was so different from the rest in this particular series mainly being there was a lot of unnecessary mumbo-jumbo in this book. I don’t know why she published this independently other than the fact that maybe she got tired of the editors taking out a lot of the unnecessary mumbo-jumbo but honestly there was a lot in this book that didn’t add to the story and in some cases was frustrating and distracting because it really wasn’t necessary. She could’ve narrowed the first seven hours down to a couple of chapters and maybe an hour and had the same effect that the entire seven hours did. If you love KA you’ll enjoy this book once you finally find out why Millie broke up with high, if you’re new to KA, I wouldn’t start with this book. I am a huge KA fan but I have noticed in the recent years that her books have been hit or miss as opposed to in the early days where they were all hits. No author can have every book be the best book you’ve ever read but in the early days I was never disappointed in a KA book, where in recent years I’ve curbed away from some of them based on reviews from readers who have read the majority of KA’s books. Basically if they didn’t care for it I’ve steered clear of it too because I’ve discovered my taste runs the same as theirs. When KA is on her game her books are phenomenal but when she’s off they just drag forever. Fortunately she Has about 50 or so books that are spot on and only a small amount that are not so good. In saying that I guess I put this book somewhere in the middle it’s the first one of her books I’ve read where I didn’t care for the first part of it but really enjoyed the second so that’s new. However, I read a review that actually stated that and I kept hold of that review and continued to listen even though I wanted to turn it off and I’m really glad I did because the second half of the book was close to what you would expect from KA. I do wish this had the dual narration like own the wind did. I actually wish they all had the duel narration like own the wind. overall if you can make it through the first seven hours it’s worth the read or listen to continue to hear about the ongoing‘s of chaos.

One of the best KA books I've heard in a long time. It was fresh, original, beautiful and still had all the best things we love about KA books. I hope in the future she writes Roam and Sniff's stories once they've become men. I think that would make a great end to a great series since they've been so integral since the 4th book. I would say Darius too but at one time she mentioned writing his book in the series she starts with Mace and Stella moving to LA as Darius supposedly goes with him. If not, his should be next, then R & S.

I have read almost all of KA's books and loved nearly every one of them. I have to say this book was one of her worst. Considering she now has a publisher I'm quite surprised they didn't trim the fat This book was just entirely to long and detailed. I usually love that about her books, the amount of detail she gives making it easy to picture the scenes in your mind but with this book there was just to much. I think the reason for that is because a lot of it really wasn't very interesting and I found myself quite bored at times. I have listened to many of her books this length multiple times and lost sleep because I didn't want to wait to hear what came next. This book was not that way and I don't think I want to finish this series. I'm surprised she detoured to this less than par series for her when she has others to finish that are awesome and people can't wait to get the next book. I'm sure she doesn't or didn't think this series would be below her normal standard but unfortunately it was. I do have to say the idea was good and there were scenes that were great and if her editors cut out the mumbo jumbo in between and just stuck with the meat and bones as well as the funny and cute parts it would have been a great book but alas they didn't so it is definitely sub par for KA. If you've never read her books before you may or may not like this. Her hero was fairly typical of all her heroes and they all talk pretty much like this one except he wasn't as strong, protective, outspoken or determined as most of the others. The heroine however was very different for her, they are usually stronger, funnier, more stubborn, have wittier comebacks and are pretty smart mouthed towards their man when he gets bossy making them pretty awesome and not at all this refined, quiet, reflective, reserved, docile, or quirky. I guess the biggest disappointment was that sparks usually fly between the H/h and that just didn't happen here. They fell in love yes but it was a slow burn and it just drug on way to long. If you didn't like this book try Rock Chick, Mystery Man, Sweat Dreams, The Golden Trail or any books from those series as they are all really good! If you are a regular KA fan and love the books above and the series that go with them unless you can get this on sale and have some spare time I'd skip it and get one you don't have from her other more popular series or re listen to one of your KA favorites.

Oh and the audio was not the best. The heroine talked way to slow, the kids voices were to deep, and there wasn't much emotion throughout most of the story which also made it seem to drag on forever!

Good book that will stay with you. However, there is some pretty extreme violence-death matches with kids having to kill kids. I had to skip through those parts. There is also rape, murder, etc. typical stuff for a mob book. The story is heart wrenching and actually made me tear up a few times. Does have HEA but not as satisfying as it could of been if the epilogue had been farther down the road than just 6 months as the hero was still really broken. It would have better if it was at least 2-3 years instead. I read for free through romance club. Unless you really like that type of book and don't mind really dark stuff, don't waste the credit.

This was a tough book to listen to. I have never had to deal with the hard issues discussed in the book however I am a born-again Christian and believe in the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongue's as a form of prayer. The way the book describes the use of this by the cult is extremely difficult to listen to as it is extremely twisted from its original intention which is what Cults do. I think the part that was the most difficult is the fact that there really are cults like the one described in this book in the world that do exactly what was done to the main character and other characters in the book and for those of us who are born again Christians it's extremely disturbing to realize that people would use something that God created as good into something used to twist others minds into believing that what they are doing to them is right as well as deceiving themselves into believing that what they are doing is from God when it's coming straight from the pit of hell.
