When I read the first book in this series, Brooklyn Girls, I fell in love with all the girls living in that brownstone in Brooklyn. Each girl has a different personality and each is facing issues that are different and unique to them yet similar to each other at the same time. I guess you can say many of the issues are quintessential to the 20s, like discovering what it is you want to do with your life and who you want to be. Heck, I'm a little over a month out of my 20s and I'm still trying to find the answers to those questions.

Angie came off as a total wild child in the first book and in Love and Chaos, the book focuses on her while also focusing on her room mates, Pia, Julia, Madeline, and Coco whom we met in the first book. If you're worried about not having read Brooklyn Girls before Love and Chaos, don't despair. While the characters are the same, the books can be read independently of each other as there is little to no mention of what happened in the first book.

I must say getting up close with Angie made a world of a difference for me. I was able to learn what molded her behavior and attitude. I appreciated seeing her view her own behavior and release what was wrong and what she needed to do to change it. Angie may have seemed out of control, but I saw her as someone who was misguided and didn't know how to handle what was going on. Her solution to any sort of trouble/problem was to run away. Yes, Angie makes some poor choices. Who hasn't? I loved how she dealt with them afterwards. Not only did I feel as if I could relate to Angie, I wanted to be one of her confidants and just tell her she was on the right path and to be strong. It turns out she figured that out on her own.

The second story in this series (about Angie this time) turned out very interesting.
I personaly liked the main character very much.
She made poor choices, but had always good intention and I liked to be in her head.

After professing my love for Brooklyn Girls last year, it is no surprise that I was looking forward to reading Love and Chaos. Gemma Burgess hits it out of the park yet again, with a vividly told tale. Complete with emotions and situations that I found easy to identify with, Love and Chaos has certainly earned a place as one of my favorite reads this year.

This second installment of (mis)adventures is narrated by Angie, the wild child, the party girl. I was worried I wouldn’t connect with her, since she and I are basically polar opposites. But I shouldn’t have feared – Burgess managed to make Angie easy for me to identify with by writing about familiar situations, particularly the hunt for a “dream job”.

Sure, Angie is brash and frank. She’s impulsive, and prone to the flee instinct in lieu of staying to fight. Her partying habits, and tendency to drink too much, made me wrinkle my nose a time or two. But all these things are a result of her upbringing, especially the way she understands love and craves it for herself. This isn’t an excuse, however, just an explanation.

It may appear that Angie isn’t the most likeable character, but that’s not true. Angie is also a talented designer, to whom fashion is like breathing and style is as natural a facet of her personality as breathing. She is loyal and extremely protective, with the capacity to fight on behalf of her friends. She can be brave, and funny, and also the kind of person who just lights up the room. My favorite thing about Angie? She harbors a secret stash of romance novels that she enjoys reading.

Apart from the five girls still living together in Rookhaven, the one other thing Brooklyn Girls has in common with Love and Chaos is the search for a job.

I love this book and I love this author! Captivating and inticing: once I cracked open the first page I couldn't put it down. Gemma Burgess is now one of my favourite authors. I hope she releases more novels within this series! As a twenty-something , the books were extremely relatable for me, and often laugh-out-loud-funny. 5 stars for sure!

It felt like this book took forever to be released, but the wait didn't disappoint!

I loved the first Brooklyn Girls novel, and I was excited to read about Angie as I knew she'd be an interesting character. In the beginning of the novel, Angie is reckless, hurt, and beginning to spiral out of control. However, she is also one of the nicest and honest people you will meet. As the book progresses, we see Angie make choices after recognizing her own poor actions that changes her behaviour for the better, and she grows into a happier and better version of herself. I found Angie a relatable and likeable character, as are all the characters in the book, and especially the male lead, Sam :)

I absolutely loved Brooklyn Girls: Angie. And it reminded me once again why Gemma Burgess is one of my favourite authors- nobody writes like she does! I cannot wait for the next Brooklyn Girls novel, which is about Coco- hopefully the wait won't be too long!
