Lissa's Review: Havoc (Mayhem #4) by Jamie Shaw
REVIEWER PURCHASE PUBLISHER: HarperAudio
NARRATOR: Saskia Maarleveld & Will Damron RELEASED: February 21, 2017 GENRE: contemporary romance LENGTH: 11 hours and 40 minutes FORMAT: ebook, paperback, audible
When Hailey Harper left her family farm to enroll in veterinary school, she had a plan: keep her head down, ace her classes, and most importantly… don’t upset the uncle paying her tuition. Translation? Don’t piss off his dramatic, self-absorbed daughter, Danica, even if she’s a nightmare to live with.
Falling in love with her cousin’s rock star ex-boyfriend was definitely not part of the plan.
As the drummer of a now-famous rock band, Mike Madden could have any girl he wants. He’s sweet, funny, romantic, talented—and the only guy that’s ever made Hailey’s heart do cartwheels in her chest. The more she gets to know him, the harder she falls, but Hailey knows they can never be more than friends… because Danica wants him back, and she’ll fight dirty to win.
Mike is falling for Hailey too, but Danica’s threats and his rock star life—music video shoots, international tours, obsessed fans—could tear them apart before they’ve even begun. Hailey isn’t sure she’s the one for him, but Mike’s waited years for a girl like her… and he’ll do anything to prove it. FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
This series is by far one of my favs. Havoc is a great romance. Hayley is a kind-hearted person, but she has the devil on her shoulder aka Danica. She tries and tries to bring her down, but in all honesty, I believe she’s always been threatened by her. Cause Danica could never be anything like Hayley. Mike, the lone drummer who's been waiting for the perfect woman to come into his life. Who ends up finding it. There were a lot of moments again, where I’m just yelling at Hayley. Like, don’t listen to your witch of a cousin. But what happens, in the end, is Justified. I don’t think I’ve ever hated a character as much as Danica. I love how Hayley and Mike came together. They were perfect for each other and all the obstacles they had to go through, were worth it. I have to say I’m going to miss listening to this series and these characters. After listening to the series, I have no idea what I’m going to listen to next. Jamie is a very talented writer, and I love how she’s able to make these characters so relatable. The narrators were terrific as well and highly enjoyed listening to the narration. Overall, Five Boundless Stars.
