Not worth your time

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.

Overkill

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

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.

Would you ever listen to anything by T. K. Leigh again?

No, I will not buy TK Leigh again. Book 1 was intriguing but book 2 and 3 were repetitive craziness.

How could the performance have been better?

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!

What character would you cut from Gorgeous Chaos?

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.

Every trope ever

This is a review for the entire trilogy.

Stupid descriptions...like someone giving an "irritated yet contrite look"...wut?
Unrequited love? check.
"big plot twist"? check...although I saw it coming.
Unrealistic bad guys? check. They were so one-dimensional.
CIA guys, navy seal guys, everyone is filthy rich so the story doesn't really have to take into account that they should GO TO WORK and can't spend all day in bed? check.
This female lead is rather unlikable. I can't even figure out why ALL the guys in the book fall madly in love within a day of meeting her. She is a semi-functioning alcoholic who whinges and whines about EVERYTHING despite regular therapy.
Amnesia? check.
Repetitive sex scenes? check. (even if what some of what they do isn't "vanilla", by the time you've heard it for the FOURTH time, it becomes rote...also? Author needs to find a word other than "undone". I got SO sick of hearing that one.)

***spoilers****
Faked deaths? check.
Implausible motivations? double check. Like...she leaves him because she's protecting herself from having to live without him...?
Utter stupidity? quadruple check. They JUST got back together for the third time and she realizes mid-coitus that she forgot to take her birth control and they decide together that he should come inside her.
People are trying to kill her suddenly for something that happened over 20 years ago because of course they are.
She was pregnant, but she lost the baby when she was raped, shot and repeatedly kicked and then she's in a coma, but at least she no longer has amnesia.

***end spoilers***

This is not an original work. It's every story line general hospital ever had all in one series (minus the Cassedine weather controller machine from the 1980's)...and I wasted HOURS hoping that it would get better.

The ONE thing the author does well is describing sadness. The narrator was meh.

Slow books, seemed like it was the authors first time writing romance or she is young without a lot of life experience.

Is definitely Chaos

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.

Reasonable story

But terrible narration. The male character Sou des like an idiot. No one talks like that.
