Assigned the role of keeper of her older sister, Calla, Bluebell Strong has spent her life cleaning up messes. Frustrated, unappreciated, and repressed, Blue drifts away from her family. Suddenly, a jail sentence lands Calla in prison. She then becomes her nephew, Bolton’s guardian. Pulled headfirst back into the life of the Kings of Chaos M.C. she struggles to find a balance between who she must be and who she’s always wanted to be. Bolton’s father, Shadow, the man she crushed on since she was a teen, returns from prison. These back to back events forces her to choose between duty and happiness.
After serving three years in jail for a brother, Kings of Chaos enforcer, Shadow is done denying himself. The silent man, known for making problems disappear spent years holding onto a secret that kept him from the one thing he wants most, Blue. Beneath the hardened exterior of this Warrior, rests a heart that beats for one woman. Laying all his cards on the table, he risks upsetting the balance among the Strongs and the club to complete the family he always wanted.
This is the second book in the kings of chaos series and just as awesome, if not better, than book one! Bluebell Strong has always been there for her sister Calla, even when she didn’t deserve Bluebell’s kindness. When Calla gets arrested and is sentenced to prison the family relies on Blue to take in her nephew Bolt. Shadow, Bolt’s father, is also in prison due to get out soon and Blue has been in love with him since she was a teen and was heartbroken when she thought he chose Calla over her. When the truth about Shadow and Calla’s relationship comes out all hell breaks loose and Blue finally puts her foot down on being a door mat for Calla and the rest of her family.
This is a real page turner, I read it in one sitting because I just didn’t want to put it down. Loved it! I really enjoyed the progression of Blue coming out of her shell and growing a back bone. Also loved that Shadow is a total bad ass on the outside but a big softie at heart. This is a great series and I can’t wait for more!

Shyla Colt grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, but has lived a variety of different places thanks to her wanderlust, interesting careers, and marriage to a United States Marine. She’s always loved books and wrote her very first novel at the age of fifteen. She keeps a copy of her first submission letter on her desk for inspiration.

As a full-time writer, stay at home mother, and wife, there’s never a dull moment in her household.
She weaves her tales in spare moments and the evenings with a cup of coffee or tea at her side and the characters in her head for company. A self-professed rebel with a pen. Her goal is to diversify romance as she continues to genre hop, and offer up strong female characters.
