Review: Mayhem (Mayhem #1) by Jamie Shaw

When 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.

Where to start, where to start???? This book is HOT! When you have a rock star who actually has a softer side than the one he exhibits, who wouldn’t want to throw their panties on stage and hope for the best? But lets get down to business…

Rowan (Peach) is so cute and adorable in her innocent ways. Thank goodness she has a wild friend, Dee, to push her limits or else this chance encounter with the rock God that is Adam might not have happened. Yes, Ro offered to help tutor Adam in French, but Adam isn’t really thinking that “tutoring” will be going on during their weekend.

Adam clearly doesn’t have an issue with attracting chicks, but after his evening with Peach, it seems like he’s just not that interested in them. A flirt? Hell yeah, but a sweetheart down to the core.

The way their relationship builds throughout the book is wonderfully written. I really loved that we as readers are allowed to not only grow to love Adam and Rowan, but the other band members and friends as well. Some of my favorite moments were when the band would get together after the show to hang out.

But I’d have to admit that my favorite scene is when the gang is hanging out playing a drinking game with cards. What transpires is absolutely beautiful and I just couldn’t get enough. That being said, I REALLY wish I was there and pulled a seven, just saying.

Would I recommend this book? Without a doubt. I’m so caught up with these characters, I can’t wait to read the next installment, Riot, because this book was simply….Mayhem!
