Gemma & Stefanie’s Review
Alexis Noelle does an incredible job with this MC story that is fast paced and filled with drama. The author covers a very serious subject in a sensitive manner. The way the author has covered this topic really opened my eyes to the effects that domestic abuse has on the person involved. This saw me experiencing many feelings throughout the story and this is one of the reasons why I loved this book. My heart broke many times throughout the story and then over times I had a big smile on my face at the sweetness that the hero showed the heroine in the story.
Jasmine was one of the strongest characters that I have read within a story, she saw herself as weak but she was anything but weak because she lived through hell and survived. My heart broke so many times for her and I was amazed by the way that she got through everything. Despite the heartbreak and pain she endured in her life she still survived.
Cutter was an alpha male that had a gentle side when it came to Jasmine. He was a protective and loving character that I absolutely adored. I really enjoyed the way that he helped Jasmine to see how beautiful she was and the strength that she had within her. Cutter was the type of character that you can’t help but love instantly.
Mayhem is about Cutter a member of an MC and the boss of a local strip club Ambrosia. He comes across Jasmine when she comes into the club to interview for the assistant job. There is an instant connection but there was more to Jasmine then meets the eye and Cutter was determine to find out.
Mayhem is the perfect title for this book because the events within this book were complete mayhem. This was a dark and gritty read that has some dark themes throughout the story. However, this was an incredible read that had me on the edge of my seat throughout it. The author done a great job with this story.
This book makes me want to find Alexis Noelle and hug her. This is an extremely heart wrenching story that I hope is a complete work of fiction. This does a great job talking about a very serious issue in a way that is eye opening and uplifting. I have read some stories dealing with abuse before but none like this. I cried for Jasmine and in the next chapter I cheered for her too. There is a wonderful message here that I think a lot of women need to read and for that I am grateful for this book. All that being said, this is also one of the sweetest sexiest books I have read too. So, if you want a book that is going to rock your world, this is it.
Jasmine is a woman I will learn from, she is in a very messed up marriage when we meet her. She is broken, but she must keep going, she must find a job and her last resort is working for Cutter. Cutter belongs to a Motorcycle Club and runs one of their businesses. When he meets Jasmine he knows right away that something isn’t right but doesn’t know just how bad it is until one day he sees it for himself. As Cutter and Jasmine’s relationship grows we see some disturbing things, but we also see the real Cutter come out.
This was not an easy read. This had me retching a few times and wishing that I have never laid eyes on it, but it was so engrossing that I had to finish it. I had to believe that there was a happy ending for these two. I am still shaken by this book and I think that I will be for a very long time.
