My Review

Jagger Black has been a character I’ve wanted to know more about ever since readers met him in Hound and Keely’s book, so when I found out both Black brothers would be getting their stories told, I couldn’t wait to dive-in, to see the kind of men they became and how they honored their father’s legacy as well as Hound’s place in their lives. 

Jagger and Archie – Timing has never been on their side when it comes to one another, which might have been a blessing in disguise because who knows if things would have worked out at any other point before these two got their actual shot at being together. 

I’m all about a couple having a solid foundation, so the fact that these two had so many encounters throughout the years establishes their connection, early-on, and makes it make sense when things between them seem to go quickly once Jagger finally decides to go all-in.

The secondary characters involved in each and every Chaos book is what always makes the hero and heroine’s journey that much more special and the fact that there’s a huge back story that plays into Jagger and Archie’s present and future offers up great insight into the past and just how connected this brotherhood is. 

I always expect the feels when I pick up a KA story, but with Jagger and Archie’s respective pasts of loss and heartache, I should have known that it would be an emotional read – one that pulled at my heartstrings so many times. There are beautiful, hopeful, and heartbreaking moments in the book, all of which clearly illustrate who these characters are and where they come from and by the time I reached the last page of their story, I knew that this would be one of the books that stayed with me long after I was finished reading it.

I’ll never get enough of this series, so anytime I can head back to this MC and check-in with these alpha males and their old ladies is a win for me.

Excerpt

 

“You wanna know what I think?” Hound asked.

Jagger tipped his head back to look at his dad.

Then Hound told him what he thought.

“I think you’re in. And I think if you walk away from this girl, you’ll regret it for the rest of your life. And I think I’m here to tell you that because you need another voice sayin’ something you already know.”

“That’s what I think too,” Jagger admitted.

Hound nodded, and again he did it only once.

“Then I’ll look forward to havin’ her over to dinner and celebrating with your mom that she can finally stop worrying about you because she’s feelin’ you shoulda been done sowin’ those oats about five years ago.”

Jagger grinned at him.

His mother had never been at one with the way Jag tackled life, considering he’d always been about wresting as much of it as he could for his own.

Dutch was the quiet, responsible one.

Jag was…

Not.

Hound reached out and caught Jag by the neck, gave him a squeeze, a shove, then let him go.

And Jagger felt better.

“So, what’s her name?” Hound asked.

“Archie.”

Hound looked him right in the eye.

Then he burst out laughing.

He settled back into the bar, his fingers cradling his brew, and he was shaking his head.

“Archie and Georgie. Fuck,” Hound said.

Jag hadn’t thought of that, both him and Dutch finding girls with boys’ names.

He grinned, leaned back into the bar himself, and replied, “She doesn’t have red hair and freckles, and I seriously doubt her best friend’s name is Jughead, but I think she might have a bit of tomboy in her.”

“Well, son,” Hound picked up his beer and tipped it toward Jag, “you’re about to find out.”

Jag grabbed his beer and tapped necks with Hound.

And he was grinning again.

Because Hound was right.

He was.
