I absolutely loved this book! As usual, Jenika Snow delivered another sexy and exciting read with the second book in her newest biker romance series. Mayhem is the follow up book to Hard Core, and it was even better than the first one.
Jenika Snow is incredibly talented at world building and pulling the reader into her character’s drama. I was intrigued by Mayhem from the beginning, but as this series grows, I become more and more engaged with each of the characters. At first, Mayhem seemed like a hardened biker who unabashedly coerced Butters into sleeping with him to save her brother. Then I realized that he genuinely cared about her and that deep down it scared him, but he was willing to do anything to keep her safe. Even if it meant starting a war. Now Butters was much the same; afraid of her feelings for Mayhem, so she resisted him. She was an okay heroine for the alpha biker because her loyalty was strong. How else could she keep helping such a stupid brother.
Just like always, the writing style was excellent. The characters were vividly described and grabbed my interest right away. The author even opening up the way for the next book with Fury, the MC Prez. Now I come to my favorite aspect of the book. The love scenes were even more explicitly described than usual. This book was a red hot read that included some negotiation.
I enjoyed reading this book and already look forward to the next book in this great series.
