Description

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.

Une romance qui se dévore comme du petit pain

Une romance qui se dévore comme du petit pain, et qui m'a fait passer du très bon temps. J'ai écouté cet audiobook un peu par hasard, et je me suis tellement laisser prendre au jeu que je l'ai écouté en quasiment une semaine ! Il s'agit pour moi d'une très bonne évasion au coeur d'une romance sur un fond musical.

Dès les premières pages, j'ai accroché avec le personnage de Rowan. Elle me ressemble énormément et j'ai retrouvé beaucoup de mes réactions chez elle. Elle n'a pas l'habitude de sortir dans les clubs comme Mayhem, elle aime la musique mais n'est pas forcément fan du groupe qui va se produire, et elle est éperdument amoureuse de son premier petit copain. Malheureusement, ce dernier ne s'avère pas être celui qu'il parait, et cela va la briser. Dee, sa meilleure amie, sera là pour la réconforter, et lui éviter de faire la bêtise de retourner vers lui. Cette amitié entre les deux jeunes femmes est forte. Elles ont beau ne pas avoir le même caractère, elles se complètent énormément. Dee est la plus excentrique, elle amène un côté frivole à leur relation, tandis que Rowan est plus posé et calme.

Ce coureur de jupon va faire fuir toute envie de relation chez Rowan, bien qu'elle soit attiré par lui. La voir se battre contre ses propres émotions et surtout se retrouver dans des situations qui vont la mettre mal à l'aise, m'a fait sourire de bien nombreuses fois. Adam a beau être un bad boy, il n'en reste pas moins attendrissant par moment. J'ai beaucoup ce personnage absolument pas fade, et pas du tout plat. Il a ses qualités comme ses défauts !

Le roman se lit rapidement, je ne lui ai pas trouvé de longueurs. Certains passages ou situations peuvent sembler invraisemblables, mais finalement on oublie cette partie réaliste pour ce concentrer sur nos personnages et leurs sentiments. Rien de rocambolesque, mais une romance très agréable, qui nous sort la tête de notre quotidien.

Sooo sweet.

Very sweet young adult romance. Loved the chemistry between the characters. Very nice read, relaxing, not as much drama as the usual bad boy rocker books.

YA/ New Adult, College Aged, Rock Star, Romance

Would you consider the audio edition of Mayhem to be better than the print version?

Never read print.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Mayhem?

Lol, "Please?"!!!

Have you listened to any of Andi Arndt and Adam Verner ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

See below.

Any additional comments?

OK, so there is only one other review on here (at this time) and I think this book deserves a review from a different prospective. This is a YA/ New Adult Romance novel, with college aged students as the main characters. Personally I enjoyed the pace of the novel. I think the interaction between the female lead and male lead was... enjoyable, frustrating, and funny at times. Yes, they don't really get very physical till the last few chapters (excluding the beginning). And wow, ya, things get a little steamy. All I have to say is 10, 9, 8... Any who, they have some great chemistry going on through most of the story, whenever they are together. The story focuses mostly on the getting to the b/g relationship. So they have a relationship throughout most of the book just not in a relationship during the plot. But fear not there is plenty of teasing going on along with the crazy frustrating reasoning on why they can't be together. Lol, I admit even I got a little confused on their reasoning at times. But the author took what could have been a used story line and went off in a couple different directions I wasn't expecting. And I think that's what made the book for me. That, and great supporting characters (Peaches friends), some pretty funny moments, and well Adam! "Please?" made me do the stupid fan girl giggle thing (I hate that, but jeez!) Which leads me to the awesomeness of the narrator, Andi! Who made you forget you weren't watching a movie but listening to a book, and she was the only voice speaking. Enough said. A job well done. Now, the random male narrator at the very end did kind of throw me out of the story a little. I just wasn't expecting it. I think he did a good job, but I just wasn't a fan of the sound of his voice. I just couldn't picture that voice on Adam. Huh, oh well. The change of view was interesting and different (I actually think I liked it, I think). Plus it warped up some loose endings. So what can you, do? For its genre (YA/ New Adult romance) I think this has to be one of the better novels I've listened to. Perhaps in the top 10. Needless to say if you aren't interested in this type of genre then I wouldn't recommend. But if you are and you enjoy handsome, sweet, bad boy rock stars and corny HEA endings I recommend this novel and can't wait for the next one to be released! In disclosure I am in the targeted age group for this novel.

I love a feel good love story and a Rock Star!

YES!!! I love a good book with very little unnecessary drama! This was a great book! It has rock stars, college students, great friends and love, what more could you ask for?

Adam is a rock star and comes across at first a little douchy but that lasts about 2.5 seconds for me! He is actually a good guy who meets a girl once and can't stop thinking about her. Don't get me wrong, he's a slut and a jerk to other girls but only the ones who care only about his career. Rowan is a sweet girl who is naive and innocent (yep my one eye roll in the book). She has a great heart and wants to help Adam even if he might not deserve her help. She has a crappy ex who thankfully makes his own bed and paves the way for Adam! This book just made me happy all around! Started Riot as soon as I finished because I NEEDED Dee's book!

Andi Arndt was great narrating this book as always! Not really sure why they has a second narrator for 1 chapter but Adam Verner did good in small part he narrated but he didn't fit the voice of Adam to me.

Slow burn with a scorching finish

My best Audible buddy recommended this one to me and although I tend to not enjoy rocker books, I absolutely loved this one. It takes place with the characters in college, so NA which is perfect for me.

The slow, slow burn of this story kept me amped and wanton and just when I was going to get frustrated, the explosion happened and it was so good and so amazing.

Andi Arndt narrates 99% of this book with Adam Verner just having the last chapter. Andi is perfection with any character but she excels at alpha, bad boys and that's what we had here. The one chapter Adam did was great.

Surprised by how much I loved this book!

What a good listen! I got this solely based on the reviews, and they weren't wrong! The perfect amount of drama, comedy, and sex appeal kept me hooked and I couldn't stop listening. Rowen might have gone a little crazy sometimes, but it was part of her wholesome, naïve charm. And yes, Adam is the perfect rockin', swoon-worthy hero. If you like this genre, you'll love this book!

Fantastic listen

This story is so well written with an exciting hero and strong heroine that really draw you in. The supporting characters are fun and developed well. By the end, you feel like you are part of the story, you know everyone so well. As stated by other reviewers, the sex does not come until the end, but it comes at the perfect moment for the story. So many authors miss this concept. Sometimes a story needs more sex scenes, but so many times they are just thrown in to fill pages. I was never bored, never felt the story was missing anything. Yes, it is more of a YA, but a good romance is a good romance, no matter the age.

I love Andy Arndt's narration. Her first performance for me was Lick, one of my all time favorite rock romances. She did an excellant job here as well.

If you love a romance that will stay with you long after you finish, don't let this one pass you by. I will be following this auther for more great romance...

Great Start to a New Adult Series !

Shaw is a New to Me author and I am so glad that I gave MAYHEM a chance cause I really enjoyed the storyline, the characters and I am so excited to get my ears (hands) on RIOT and see what happens with Joel and Dee!

Sometimes a New Adult can get too angsty and depressing, but MAYHEM was just the right amount of secret crush emotion mixed with tons of humor and just light-hearted goodness! Great debut for the series!

Cute Young Love Story

I really enjoyed this one. The characters are college age so if you are not into young adult mentality you might not enjoy it, but it was NOT full of a lot of drama and angst mentality that some young adult books have. I loved the chemistry these 2 had from the very beginning and that she didn't just hop into a hot relationship with him even though most would have and even though I usually love a good hot book. Though it states it is narrated by 2 people it is 95% narrated by Andi Arndt, which I personally loved. Adam only narrated at the end of the book for the epilogue from the male character POV.

Not the deepest of books but quite enjoyable

First of all I adore Andi Arndt, she is consistently good and has a way of making you connect to the characters. The story wasn't too deep but it was a fun and sweet listen.

Want to read it again and again!!!

I have not read a Jamie Shaw book but had this in my wish list. Saw other's raved about it so I gave it a try. I am so glad I did. This was a great love story of opposites attract. The characters were great and the storyline fun. It brought me back to my college days and first loves. It is a must read.
