Born to a King of Chaos patch holder with a case of wanderlust and a self-centered mother, twenty-one-year-old Nevada Weber is used to taking care of herself. She’s spent her life skating by on her wits and pure determination. When she lands in a situation, she can’t haggle her way out of, she’s forced to rely on another brother for help.

Club enforcer Gage “Wizard” Carmody has done his job too well over the years. Icy and numb on the inside, he walks around in a prison of his own making. When the bright green-eyed girl he helped raise winds up unclaimed and in need of protection he steps in seeking redemption. In a life where destruction lurks just around the corner, they discover something with the potential to bring healing and happiness.

But when you live in Chaos nothing goes as planned.

***Kristin – #NerdGirlSoldier’s  Review***
I love biker books. They’re always raw and gritty but with just a splash of romance. These books always have the most alpha males and the toughest female characters in my opinion. This book has those elements so overall I enjoyed it. Wizard is without a doubt an alpha male who cares for the people in his life, but he struggles tremendously with his feelings for Nevada. When he sees Nevada not as a club brother’s daughter but as a woman, he starts to reevaluate his feelings and consider a one woman relationship. Ms. Colt did a wonderful job with Wizard; while she made him a sturdy male character, she didn’t make him so strong that he wouldn’t be able to grow. Nevada was an usual biker chic; she wasn’t like most of the daughters raised in motorcycle clubs in that she was bounced around from house to house. Her dad, Hulk, left and so the brothers stepped up to raise her. I think this really plays a huge role in how Nevada develops throughout the book. She’s afraid to be loved because all she knows is abandonment. This is key at a later part in the book that made me just cry.

While I enjoyed the story and was entertained, I did get confused with the alternating POV’s. I wasn’t sure until further into a paragraph or chapter if it was Nevada or Wizard that I was listening to and it made it hard to follow. I also feel that the further I read the more rushed it felt. In my opinion I think if the last few sections of the book had been stretched out, it would have read a little slower. There are some questions that aren’t answered and for the most part I can live with not knowing since there’s no cliffhanger and it’s got a happy ending. Try it for yourself and see.
