Blog Tour: MAYHEM 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.

Praise for Mayhem:
This book is exactly why every girl has a rock star fantasy. Love, lust and good times on the road make for a fun and sexy romance that will make you want to drop everything and run away on tour with the band.

   — Jay Crownover, New York Times bestselling author

There’s no better feeling than staying up late to finish a great book. Mayhem was totally worth losing sleep over.
   — Tiffany King, USA Today bestselling author

"When the door opens behind me, I sit up straight and hurriedly sniff in my tears as I wipe my shaking fingers across my slippery cheeks. I hear the flick of a lighter, and then someone sits down next to me on the stairs, puffing a cigarette. When I look over at him, I nearly choke.

He gazes back at me, starting at my hot-pink heels and then raking his way up, and then he chuckles. “Are they letting people in yet?”

Adam. He’s ditched the shades and cap, and now his dark brown hair is framing his gorgeous face, stretching almost to his chin. I look away quickly, hoping he can’t tell I’ve been crying.

“Sorry about that,” I say. And I hear the hoarse sadness in my voice, but I couldn’t keep it out.

When he reaches over and brushes my tangled hair away from my eyes, I tense.

“Is everything okay?” he asks, and I half laugh. No, everything is not okay.

“Everything’s fine.”

“Then why have you been crying?”

“No reason.”

“You get all dolled up to sit outside of rock shows crying by yourself?”

I lift my gaze to stare into his eyes, and something in them makes me believe he really cares. Or maybe that’s just what I want to see, but I suddenly need to tell someone. “My boyfriend’s in there.”


“With another girl. I just caught him cheating.”

Adam takes a deep puff of his cigarette, nodding as he sighs it back out. “Want me to fuck him up?”

I laugh, and he smiles at me. “Would you?”

“If you want me to.”


He shrugs. “Because I offered.”

“Why’d you offer?”

“Who knows why I do anything I do?” He stares at me while I wait for an answer. “I just do.”

That’s a good enough explanation for me, so I look back to my knees again, letting out a shaky breath. I can’t believe I just laughed. At a time like this, Adam Everest made me laugh.

“Anyway, your boyfriend is a dumbass,” he says out of nowhere.

“How do you know?”

His gray-green eyes wash over me. “Look at you.”

I blush like hell, but I know he’s just trying to make me feel better. “You thought I was an idiot when you first saw me.”

Adam chuckles and shakes his head. “I thought you were cute as a peach.” His lips hold the cigarette in his mouth as he stands up, holding a hand down to me. My heart stops; Adam Everest is offering me his hand. In faded denim jeans, all torn up at the knees, and a fit olive-green button-down rolled up to his elbows, he makes my heart race to a nonexistent finish line. “Come on, Peach.”

I take his hand, and he lifts me to my feet, leading me away from the building. “Where are we going?”

“To get you a drink. I think you need one.”

“I’ve had a few,” I think out loud, slowing to a stop.

Adam gazes over his shoulder at me, his eyebrow cocked when he asks, “Are you saying you don’t want another?”

I take a moment to consider his question.

Just a moment, and then I keep walking." --Jamie Shaw, Mayhem


I adore rocker romance books and this is no exception. The fact that Adam isn't just a rocker, but a college student adds a different dimension from a lot of others of this genre and makes it stand out from the crowd! I love the vulnerability of Rowan after being cheated on. It certainly makes her very real. Adam has a bad boy exterior but when he is with Rowan we see his heart of gold. The perfect combination for a book boyfriend!! I loved all the surrounding characters, the camaraderie between them added humour and depth. This is a really enjoyable book and I'm glad to have been introduced to this author and series. I give it 5 stars and look forward to Riot, the next in the series!

Girls who were traded in this world never lasted long before it destroyed them, and the Gypsy Brothers had the blackest touch of all.
She blinked her huge eyes, and tears fell from them, running down her cheeks and hitting his hand. He lifted his hand off her lips and brushed more tears from her cheeks with his fingers.
Dornan wanted to tell her she shouldn’t cry. That crying implied weakness. But, as the saltwater leaving her body burned on his hand, he said nothing. Because the minute he left the room, he was going to press his tongue to every one of her tears that had fallen onto his skin and taste how sweet they were himself.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

WOW!! It takes true talent to write a series of books that make you ABHOR a main character, only to write another story that will allow you to feel compassion for that same character! Ms. Germain has accomplished that feat with flying colors.  BRAVO!! It surpassed my already high expectations! You will not regret reading this book and enjoying every bloody minute of it!

At nineteen, she's got her entire life mapped out, and what a good life it's going to be: graduate from college, move to America, and finally be free from the stifling grip of the Cartel.

Keela Daley is stressed out with nightmares and memories from her past, they are haunting her. She has no time to dwell on them as she is moving out of her dog box sized apartment and into her first house with her fiancĂ©. Moving house is a dreaded task, and Keela would love nothing more than for things to go quietly and smoothly, but when you’re engaged to a Slater brother, nothing goes quietly or smoothly. Nothing.
Alec Slater loves his woman. He also loves playing games and surprising her. Picking moving day to do both, turns out to be a failure of epic proportions. Alec wants to make it up to Keela for his mistakes, but as the day goes on, and things go from bad to worse, he doesn’t know if living with him is something she wants anymore.

What started out as a simple day of packing and moving house turns into the day from Hell. Unwanted house guests. Business propositions. Alcohol. Pregnancy tests. Panic attacks. Fighting. Arguing. Sex, and everything else that is crazy and represents the name Slater. Keela has a choice to make, and not one she will make lightly.

Keela adores Alec, and what Keela adores, Keela cherishes.

Pre-Order Keela Now!

Keela Teaser #1


Alec's lip quirked before he shook his head and looked down to the kitchen drawers. “Are you eating and then packing or packing then eating?”
Was that a serious question?
“Eatin' first... duh,” I replied.
Alec blew out an extra amount of air as he smiled. “Sit down then, I'll make you something.”
I shook my head. “Thanks for the offer, but I'm just goin' to have some yogurt and fruit.”
Alec raised an eyebrow. “Why?”
I deadpanned, “I've been talkin' the past week about dietin'.”
Did he listen to anything I say?
Alec glanced down at my body then back up to my head. “It's working, you look great.”
He was so full of it.
“Oh, bite me!” I grunted. “I haven't lost any weight yet, you lick arse. Stop lookin' to get some extra points with your silly compliments.”
Alec grinned. “I'm not fishin' for points, I was just pointing out that you look great. Even if you lose a little bit of weight you will still look great. What does that tell you?” he asked.
I shrugged my shoulders. “That you're a chubby chaser?”
Alec laughed. “No, smartass. It means you look great as is. Nothing you do can improve how beautiful you are, Kitten. You're naturally stunning.”
I stared at Alec and snorted.
“I'm not having sex with you today.”
“You say that everyday and guess what? We still have sex everyday... twice yesterday if I recall, three times if you include last night.”
“I get it,” I growled. “I have a weakness for your cock. No need to rub it in me face.”
“There is always a need to rub my cock in your face.”


Every book in this series just gets better and better the more we get to know the characters. Kerala follows on from Alec and really for most enjoyment you should read them in order. Keela and Alec have had a whirlwind romance built on a pretend relationship, however the chemistry and passion between them is electric. They argue over the small stuff but this is what makes the book hilariously funny. Author L.A Casey writes humour better than anyone I've read.I love the Irish dialect features, this makes the characters much more realistic and is part of what makes these books stand out from the crowd! I adore all the Slater Brothers and their girls. The camaraderie between them all is simply beautiful. Who wouldn't want brothers as hot and protective as this gang.This book is definitely up their on my favourites list and I easily award it 5* ~ Rosie

Landry Phillips and Madeline Ponder were lifelong best friends.  They had seen each other through every day of their young lives, until Landry joined the Marines and was deployed to Afghanistan.  Madeline waited, and worried, until the one late night phone call she had prayed she would never receive. In that one instant their lives changed forever.  Could Madeline help Landry find his way through the darkness that threatened to swallow him whole?  Or would he be lost to her before he realized she had truly been his from the very beginning?


From the cover to the last word, this book is great. Never before has a cover so accurately portray the storyline itself. This book deals with a serious subject matter in a compassionate, realistic yet enjoyable (if that's the correct word) manner.  Can Life long friends ever become lovers? Well with what Landry and Madeleine have to overcome you would guess that the odds are stacked against them but maybe not? I love how this book was written in a duel pov this really makes the book have so much more depth. I really enjoyed this book from an author who was new to me. Thank you for not shying away from difficult subject matter. I award this book 4 stars ~ Rosie
