Review for Chaos by Jennifer Locklear - 4 out of 5
SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -
He’s older, sophisticated, and harboring secrets.
She’s intelligent, beautiful, and emotionally numb.
On the surface, advertising executive Jack Evans has it all. Blessed with striking good looks, a thriving career, a stylish wife, and an adoring daughter, he’s still struggling with personal turmoil. And when his wife abruptly leaves, it’s up to Jack to care for his child alone while picking up the pieces of his broken past.
While doing so, Jack is drawn to the up-and-coming executive, Kathleen Brighton. She’s stunning and intuitive—and everything he needs now that the divorce is finalized. As he falls for his sexy colleague, Jack worries that Kathleen may not be able to handle the chaos of his life. Will Jack escape the mistakes of his past to capture the future he deserves?
MY REVIEW -
Chaos is the sequel to Constellation, and I think it's best to read them in order. Although, Chaos is more of a prequel story to Constellation. When I started reading Constellation, I did want to know how Jack and Kathleen ended up together, so I was glad to see Chaos is the story of Jack and Kathleen before they became a couple. Chaos is told in Jack's POV, and goes into his life before, leading up to, and after his move to Bend, Oregon. There's also some chapters in the time period after the events of the first book. I really liked those chapters because they really show how Jack is feeling about the situation with Kathleen, and for Kathleen. Jack made some bad choices in his life that have added discourse to his relationships; especially his marriage. The writing is a little formal, but overall, it draws you in. The connection between Jack and Kathleen is wonderful, and these two have some intense chemistry. Once I started reading, I didn't want to stop. This is a mature love story, and I find the story of Jack and Kathleen very interesting. This story has a satisfying end, but there is still more story to be told, so I hope the author writes fast, so I can have the next one!
