Review: Mayhem – Jamie Shaw

Posted January 11, 2015 by BookBud in BookBud / 1 Comment

22552579When college freshman Rowan Michaels meets gorgeous, up-and-coming rock star Adam Everest, she knows a player like him is the last thing she needs after her ex-boyfriend shattered her heart. But she can’t stop thinking about the kiss they shared on his tour bus.

On the first day of school, Rowan is stunned when Adam saunters into her French class. He’s soon failing miserably, and, on a whim, she offers to tutor him. But Adam doesn’t recognize her as a makeup-free, glasses-clad college student—a far cry from the beautiful, mysterious “Peach” he met at his concert.

During a wild weekend on tour with the band, Rowan can’t help falling for the sweet guy buried beneath Adam’s rocker persona. Yet she knows she could never compete with the girls constantly throwing themselves at his feet. She’d just end up hurt … again.

Peach is all Adam thinks about, though, and when Rowan realizes this, she has a decision to make: stay just friends to protect her fragile heart … or reveal the truth about the night they met and admit she’s fallen completely, hopelessly in love with him.

Reviewer’s Thoughts

Cute, in a Disney sort of way. I felt like I was watching one of my daughter’s favorite singer Disney shows. It was not my regular read but with that being said I think it is great for a young girl to read. Rowan and Adam meet at a concert that his band is performing at. Rowan see her boyfriend of two years ( who she is living with by the way but never slept with)  cheating on her. She is so upset and walks out of the bar and runs into Adam and they have a make out session to end all make out sessions. He doesn’t know her name and refers to her as Peaches. Well they end up in the same class in college and he doesn’t recognize her, because she was all dolled up and now she is nerd girl. See… Total G- rated movie.  They become friends again  when she has to go on the road with him to tutor him, all the while she knows who he is , but he doesn’t find out until later on. They each have a set of friends who are both hilarious and supportive. The only negative thing I can say is I quite didn’t get the ages correct. They seemed to drink a lot but were they still 18 or over 21? I went back a few times and couldn’t come up the answer. Over all.. I would give it 4 cute and fluffy stars.

I am a stay at home mom who rather be reading than doing house work. I am an old fashioned kind of reader. I love my romance books to be romantic with a side of angst thrown in. I also love to read murder mystery suspense books. The more suspenseful the better. I just love to read. I've been reviewing for Cocktails and Books since May 2014.
