What They Say
Raised by the Black Jacks, Naiya Kelly grew up fast, furiously, and with little to lose. But now that she’s put her MC days behind her, she is free to do what she wants—until she meets a man who imprisons her, body and soul. She swore she’d never give her heart to a biker, but Holt is the most passionate, protective man she’s ever known. But will Holt be forced to betray his one true love to exact his revenge?
For what it's worth, this was an intriguing read, makes me glad I read it, and to know to steer clear in future as reading about motorcycle gangs who like to kill each other make me feel weird/nauseous/mildly frightened. There's also a very good chance I could never watch Sons of Anarchy, as I suspect that is much, much worse. What I liked was that Holt and Naiya were kinda the same people, in many ways, and seeing them look out for each other, in their revenge mission was sweet, kinda (because they were, after all, still trying to kill someone, although Viper really did deserve for people to kill him, because he really was horrifically awful).
On the flip side, it drove me to the edge of distraction to read about sweet butts. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT A SWEET BUTT IS BUT OH MY GOD HOW DEGRADING A TERM. It's clearly a term for girls who hang around motorcycle clubs, but if I had done a shot for every mention of the word sweet butt, I would have been drunk before I was even a quarter through the book. It riled me up so much I'm writing about it!!!! If I never see that word/term again it will be too soon.
Chaos Bound was an intriguing read, I read it in a couple of days and the chemistry between Holt and Naiya was fantastic, although Tank was my favourite character. I loved Tank, he seemed to sweet and sensitive, despite his name. I feel like if I'd read the other books in the series I would probably have had a better handle on this book, but as a standalone it worked, you just felt like there were bits missing, holes that needed filling, etc, but apart from that it was an interesting, enjoyable read.
