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.
FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
Mayhem is an unexpected rock star romance, the type of romance that we all want.
Rowan is the good girl, been with the same boy for the last three years. She feels like her future is all planned out, till the unexpected happens and she’s thrown practically in the arms of Adam Everest, the young rockstar god all the girls swoon for. But Rowan’s different, she doesn’t exactly give in, on a whim. This was so such a well written, beautiful story. Some moments are so heartbreaking and ones that are full of love. At first, I was taken aback by Rowan; She was questioning a lot about Adam’s intentions. Which is understandable. But then I realized that she just didn’t have the highest self-esteem after what happened to her. Adam honestly is pretty impressive. This is the first book that I’ve read of Shaw’s, so I’ am hooked. Already purchased the second book in the series. Can’t wait to just in again, in the world of Mayhem. Overall, Five Boundless Stars
