Flirting with Chaos (Crazy in Love #1)
by Kenya Wright
Chaos never felt this good!
Warning: Adult only! This novel is Dark, Twisted, and really Sexy! Absolutely not for the weak at heart.
Blurb: Rain’s been washing blood off her hands for far too long. After five years, she accepts the fact that she’s still a little crazy but feels as if she’s finally gotten it all under control.
Parties, drugs, and sex flood Jude’s life, and music and scandal run through his veins. He’s the son of a rock god and grandson of a jazz legend. It’s no surprise that his own star is on the rise, and with so many groupies vying for his attention, his childhood best friend Rain keeps him anchored in reality.
She’s nothing like him—an art student with no idea of her own beauty, who would rather curl up with a sci-fi novel than party in the spotlight. Everything changes when she asks him for a unique favor: she wants him to take her virginity. He’s more than willing to oblige, but things get complicated when his pervy father gets involved. Meanwhile, intense feelings rise to the surface, ones neither Rain or Jude are prepared to deal with.
If their relationship has any chance for survival, she must finally confront the demons of her past, and he must face the addictions of the present. When the smoke clears, will they find that sex between best friends was a good idea, or will they discover they had been Flirting With Chaos the entire time?
This book was a seriously messed up trip, so of course I loved it!
Rain and Jude have known each other for most of their lives. Both of their father’s were members of a legendary rock band. They were next door neighbors and they were living the dream. Until one night Rain’s father died. Since then, Rain just hasn’t been herself.
Jude is the bad boy son of a rock star and grandson of a Jazz legend. He is set to have an epic career. He and Rain have been best friends forever. So when Rain shows up on his doorstep on her birthday and asks him to take her virginity, he is taken aback.
Jude and his father have a highly unusual relationship. Some would call it progressive, some would call it seriously messed up. Jude has learned to cope. He finds solace at the bottom of the bottle or in a pill.
But Rain is not all she seems. She isn’t as put together as everyone would like to think. Jude knows the truth, and he may be the only one who truly understands.
When Jude agrees to help Rain, he has no idea how far he will fall.
Rain needs to be saved from her fear. Jude needs to be saved from his addiction. In the end, they may have to save each other.
This story took a lot of bizarre twists and turns and I loved it. This is not a cut and dry love story. It is a little dark and twisted. It is also an amazing tale of redemption and true love.
I would categorize this book as a New Adult romance. Jude and Rain are both just finding their way in life. Rain is the virgin and Jude is the ladies man. There was a slow sexual tease at the beginning of this book that built to a climax. And when it peaked, it exploded!! HOT!
Jude is dealing with issues of a burgeoning addiction. Rain has demons in her head that she has been running from. They both live a life of excess. There were definitely some very dark moments, but there were also a lot of very tender and sweet moments too. The dialogue was amazing. The writing was outstanding. The characters…brilliant.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a story that doesn’t quite fit into any molds. I thought this author did a superb job of making this amazing story come to life.
