Review: Mayhem (The Order of the Wolf #5) by Angela Addams

He will rock her world… once he shows her how he really howls.

By night, Mayhem howls out monster rock hits to roaring crowds, and lives the rock ’n’ roll dream. But lately he wants more than empty sex marathons with lusting fangirls. When he spies a beautiful redhead at his latest album launch party, his wolf howls only for her.

He can taste her sweetness and innocence hovering just beyond his grasp, but it’ll be a delicate task showing her the side of his life no one ever sees. When the sun rises, and his wolf form takes over.

Fledgling rock magazine editor Hannah knows the minute she lays eyes on Mayhem that she won’t fit into his world. But that doesn’t mean she can’t fantasize that she’s the only woman wrapped around his smoking-hot body.

One kiss—one perfect kiss—and Mayhem is ready to seal the deal of and for a lifetime. But before he can properly introduce Hannah to both halves of himself, she is gone without a trace. And the rapidly cooling trail smells distinctly of Hunter…

Warning: Contains a pack alpha/rock star with an attitude. He’s HOT. As in whole-lot-of-trouble hot. Set-your-panties-on-fiyah hot. Make-you-want-to-climb-into-this-book hot. Sensitive readers be warned, once he zeroes in on his mate, he’s not above breaking a few rules to get what he wants.

I am guilty!  I loved the cover and then I read the blurb! Hot wolfshifter and leader of a rock band-oh yeah I’m in!

Mayhem is a quick read that centers on the lead singer of the band Riot, named Mayhem a wolfshifter, and a human named Hannah.  It’s book five in Angela Addams paranormal Order of the Wolf series. I have not read the other books in the series but I never felt lost while reading this, so I considered it a standalone.

Mayhem is a rockstar and is so tired of the groupie scene.  He just wants something real-a mate like his band members have. One night he meets Hannah and knows she’s his mate.  He’s hot and so sexy, but also a bit scary. After an amazing kiss, she finds she’s under his spell too. Hannah doesn’t believe he wants her plain and forgettable self-not when he can have whomever he wants whenever he wants. Mayhem sets out to make Hannah believe he’s the one for her and slowly introduce her into his “other” side.

Things happen very quickly in this story.  I understand the mating draw and why Mayhem professes his undying love so quickly.  But it was very fast. Hannah is overwhelmed. Understandably so. She never has a chance to learn about Mayhem and the band until she’s kidnapped by his enemy.  She unfortunately is enlightened by them instead of by Mayhem himself.  Hannah also learns facts about herself that puts some things into perspective for her. 

I like paranormal reads more and more and am glad to read some that have some unique characteristics.  The idea that Mayhem’s pack doesn’t have the ability to shift when they want because they are too young is different and outside the norm.  I really liked that.  It presented a certain problem that has to be dealt with on a daily basis for these guys.  We get glimpses of all the band members with their mates and I liked them enough to go back and want to read their stories too!
