If you have been following the series, you may remember Rosalie from early on, as the ex-girlfriend that Shy scraped off when he got with Tabby. Hurt and looking for her slice of happy, Rosie got involved with another motorcycle club, Bounty, through her new man, Throttle. Only Bounty is not on the right side of right like Chaos, and they have gotten embroiled in crazy ol’ Benito Valenzuela’s crime syndicate. In an effort to get her man free and clear of the mess, Rosie began informing on the club to Chaos. As you can imagine, things did not go well for Rosie when Bounty discovered her perfidy. On the mend and vowing off men, Rosie is not ready for the whirlwind of the Chaos family. I liked Rosie and what we learned of her character. This was a short novella so there was not a ton of character development, but I liked what I did see. She was loyal to her family and had good role models in her parents. It seems like Rosie’s dad was something special, and she was looking for a man to follow in the same footsteps. Like many of us, Rosie made some wrong choices, but she recognized the good when it was finally in front of her. I was glad that she didn’t try overhard to push it away, and was brave enough to accept what Chaos and our hero were offering.
Everett “Snapper” Kincaid seems to be somewhat of an anomaly among the Chaos crew. He is a quiet brother that likes his solitude… but that doesn’t mean he has to be alone. I loved that he was a reader (with a shout out to Steve Berry), and that he and Rosie were happy secluded in their carriage house with a good book. While all of Kristen Ashley’s men have been alphas, I think Snapper is lower on the scale of hot guy alpha behavior. He has a quiet strength but it wasn’t all caveman in your face like some of the other guys (not that there is anything wrong with that). I was happy that Snapper was finally getting his shot at Rosie, as it seems he has been waiting for an “in” for a long time. And I was equally happy that Rosie opened up enough to allow him the opportunity.
So this being a novella, things moved along at a fast clip. I would have loved more time to get to know Snapper and Rosie, but I think we will be seeing more of them in future books so I won’t complain to much. The ending of this story absolutely killed me and I may have yelled a little as I woke up the guy sitting next to me on the airplane. Oops. I apologized and blamed Kristen Ashley. 😉 I think all my fellow die hard KA fans will understand when they get to those last two words… The End.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from the author through Inkslingr PR.
Rosalie is done with men and MC's especially. Snapper wants his shot (and has for a while) so he treads carefully around her. Rosalie owns her part in what happened to her but feels she paid a steep price. She can't wrap her head around Throttle not only taking part in this, but in being the one to kidnap her and bring her there for this punishment. She takes a long look at her life after the passing of her father and does not like what she sees. She was left behind by Shy, hooked up with Throttle almost immediately after and then started to have feelings for Snapper. She thinks she needs to stand on her own 2 feet for a while and I totally understood that. She didn't want to need a man in her life and realized she never truly grieved her father's passing. Her mom points out that she was trying to replace her dad and Rosalie agrees.
Snapper wants his shot badly. He sets her up with what he feels she needs in order to move on. Chaos embraces her and Rosalie is left reeling. The impromptu housewarming party was nicely done and showed all of the Chaos family enjoying themselves immensely. Rosalie lets Snapper know where she stands on the issue of a relationship. He vows to change her mind and sets about doing just that. I liked how he gave her space but made sure she knew she was not alone. His ability to read her was nicely done. He didn't hesitate to lay it all out for her, including his true feelings and how long he felt them. He was a true KA alpha male in some respects, but also a gentle soul. I did like how KA was able to convey the relationship between Tabby/Shy and Rosalie/Snapper in a way that made sense.
Overall a very good read. It did set up what appears to be a chaotic future for Chaos and its members. We got a glimpse as to who Hound is going to be pursuing. We also got a glimpse that there is a serious problem within Chaos. I can't wait for that ride...
