Publisher's Summary

Through good times, bad times, and times of war, Cole “Rush” Allen grew up in the Chaos Motorcycle Club. Along this journey, he watched his father, Tack, and his MC brothers fight, sweat, bleed, and die to steer the club to legitimacy. And they’ve got one more battle on their hands. A battle they have to win.  

But when Rush meets the woman who put herself right in the thick of it, he knows he has to stop at nothing to get her out.  

Rebel Stapleton has lost someone she loves to murder, and she’s the kind of woman who’s going to do something about it. She puts her career on the line, and her life, to bring the man who did it to justice.   

That is, she does this until Rush Allen intervenes.  

Chaos is at war, and they’re about to face the ultimate showdown. They’ll have to negotiate skeletons from the past, enemies becoming allies, and loved ones in the line of fire on their ride to be...free.

Wow just wow

The first thing that came to mind when the last word was spoken. I read the reviews before starting this book and was prepared to be disappointed. I am a long time KA fan (I’ve read or listened to just about everything she’s written multiple times) and have been pretty disappointed in the last few books she’s written. I’m very happy to say this book completely blew me away and is the best thing I’ve listened to in a long time. I will say it was not at all what I expected and yet it was the absolute perfect ending to the beloved Chaos series. For those who got irritated and/or may get irritated in the beginning when she jumps to Beck, keep listening (from other reviews that’s where they got frustrated and stopped listening due to the multiple POV changes in the beginning) she ties it all up in a neat little bow and it all makes sense when you get to the end. I will say if you’ve never read KA before, don’t start with this book. At least listen to or read Motorcycle man and the whole Chaos series and if you can bear it, the ménage story in loose ends or some of the book won’t make sense. For those of us who have read or listened to pretty much everything she’s ever written, I think this book was written for her biggest fans. Those of us who’ve continued to listen and read even though we make not like everything she’s done and some of her explorations, we’ve continued to stick by her anyway knowing what she’s capable of and hoping that the next book is the rare gem we can sink our teeth into and want to revisit it over and over again. I hope for all of you, as it was for me, this is that book. Great job KA, it’s been a while for me but you finally did it again!

Disappointed

I have to say l love about 95% of the books Kristen writes but this one was very disappointing. I was really excited to hear Rush's story because I have read the whole series but Rush and the heroine story fell flat. They meet, fall instantly in love and that was it, no character development for them. Also the book has about 40% of there story. Rushes story is split up with about 8 or 9 differant story lines going on at the same time. This book is so scatter that it's hard to keep track of what's going on. There is also another couples love story going at the same time Rush's is but the other couple has more character development the the main story line. I felt more for them than Rush and his story. Also if you dont like sexual assault or rape scenes do not read or listen to this book.

Oh RUSH!

Oh my word, this book. I am sad it is the last in the series but so, so, happy with how this book was done and how it all wrapped up.

Not only do we get Chaos, but we get some cameos from some of our favorite series. The Rock Chicks, Dream Man, Honey and of course Chaos, it really worked and just how they all come together in different ways to make this book so perfect.

I don’t feel like we are done and gone forever. The action and obstacles these character face really made me see why Rush’s book had to be last. I loved who becomes his leading lady it was kind of iconic how fast they become something more. But what I LOVED was that it didn’t feel that fast at all. The characters and the storyline were so well done that it felt like they had known each other for years instead of days.

It has been a few hours since I finished and I just can’t get how well done this book was, knowing it’s the end of a series but not feeling that it was the end really has seemed to stick with me. I can’t wait to see where Kristen Ashley will take us next.

The narration, I am just a fan no joke Kate Russell just does male voice so well and her Tack voice I can’t even. But I love that it’s always just a little different for each fella. Phenomenal can’t wait for what is to come.

Could not get enough, makes me want to re-read the Chaos series again. Love Kristen Ashley’s way of weaving other series lead characters in her books.

Huge let down!

The only good thing I can say about this book was the narration. I have loved this series so much, and wanted to love this book, but I absolutely did not. Kristen Ashley has always written slightly quirky characters, but writing weird for the sake of weird seemed to be her goal here. The sex elements in this story were not good, from the Dom stuff with Rebel’s brother and the parts with Baneto just seemed really gross to me, not a subject I want to read. I think that Kristen, from her last series she wrote wanted to put that element in this book. Didn’t want to read about the whole Dom, Sub thing with that series, really didn’t want that in my Chaos books either. All in all this book just wasn’t worth my time and I plan on returning it, because this is a book I would NEVER re-read again!

Excellent

So, just finished this one and I have to say I'm glad I read it before I saw some of the reviews. Personally I enjoyed it. My only complaint and the reason it's not a five star for me is that I would have liked for Rush to have his story told without being part of the series wrapup. I enjoyed finding out what happened to some of the most despicable characters we've seem throughout the series but I also would have like more Rush and Rebel. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone who hasn't read the entire series since so much of it is series wrap up. If you've been a fan all along I think you will enjoy it. Narration on this bugged me a bit. The narrator actually did an excellent job but with the vast majority of the characters being rough rugged biker types of felt of hearing a female voice for those parts.

Judge for Yourself; but personally, I Loved It!

I absolutely loved this finale to the Chaos series. I have read a lot of reviews where people did not like it. They complained about the constant jumping around, introduction into some BDSM stuff (The Honey Series), not enough Rush and Rebel and too many other people being brought in. My opinion is; listen to the book and judge for yourself. Don’t make a judgment call based on others opinions if you’ve already invested yourself in this entire series. Yes, there is a lot of jumping around but there has to be in order for you to get the full story and know where everyone is at, what they are doing and why. I don’t see how this book could wrap up the entire series and everything going on in the club if it only focused on Rush and Rebel and didn’t dive deep on everything else.

Heads up, I don’t think this book can be read as a standalone. Not if you want to be familiar with all the players in it. The amount of POV’s and other characters will leave anyone who hasn’t read all the previous series KA has written, lost and confused. This book has an all-star cast from prior series in Dream Man, Rock Chick, Unfinished Hero’s and some from Honey. Personally, I was not interested in The Honey Series only because I prefer male Master’s and wasn’t into the female being the Domme, but I did listen to the series a while ago and I was glad I did. That series introduces you to some big players in this book, especially Rebel’s brother Diesel. I also recommend listening to More Than Everything, a short novella in Loose Ends, which is on Diesel, Maddox and Molly. Absolutely adored those 3 and their story.

There were many tense, emotional moments and many laugh out loud moments. I have always loved how kind and sweet and funny the Chaos men can be when they don't have to be tough. I don’t want to give anything away, but just give it a listen. You may have to rewind a few times to make sure you are following along (like I did), but it was well worth it (in my opinion).

I absolutely adored Cole 'Rush' Allen when I met him in Motorcycle Man and he grew up to be every bit as sexy, protective, possessive and sweet as his dad. Rebel was the bomb. She was smart, sexy, loving, loyal and protective. They were the perfect match.

It wasn't easy saying goodbye to the Chaos crew. These characters stole a piece of my heart when I met Tack in Mystery Man and hasn't let up since. With each new book and new characters I only fell deeper into the world of Chaos. This book was the perfect ending to the series and was a great way to say goodbye. I hope we get more glimpses of them in possible future books.

As far as narration, I have always enjoyed Kate Russell and I thought she did a stellar job with all the different characters and emotions she had to portray.

Loose ends untied WTH

1. I thought Maddox and Diesel’s loose ends were tied up in...”Loose Ends”. Is this Loose Ends pt. 2?? I was very disappointed with all the sub/dom/mmf content in the Chaos series. I LOVE Chaos and I was NOT looking for more of the honey series story in this series. 2. Rush and Rebel’s story was so under developed. I was way more interested in Jana and Beck’s story than theirs. 3. The investigation and crime content I believe was well done, as far as I can tell. 4. I heard too much of KA’s voice in this, too much soapbox and agenda pushing and seemed tacky and self righteous. If you want to address bigotry maybe you should save it for another book so you can develop the characters better and give well rounded points of view. This just read like one person’s opinion and perspective about all the parties involved. Not very objective, or empathetic to other points of view. Which I believe is an authors job unless they are writing an opinion piece. When you read fiction you want to be transported not feel like you’re being preached to or told how to think. It’s up to the reader to make up their mind.
5. Rebel seemed like the Polar opposite of Leah from the vampire series you wrote. Which isn’t a good thing. She showed no opposition and strength of will to even try to imagine not dating Rush. She threw a little sass but it was almost like you didn’t want to waste time writing to develop their relationship. There was virtually zero conflict between them.
I know I am being harsh but this book just rubbed me the wrong way and did not give off the “Chaos” vibe I’m used to.
6. Using Benito’s sex tape as leverage to humiliate him seemed counterintuitive towards the tone and message of majority of the conflict in the book between Diesel, Rebel and their immediate family, don’t you think?
This is a hard pass for me. Usually I can listen non stop to a 20something hr long KA book but this one I can barely finish. Which makes me sad.
LASTLY, I was so looking forward to this narration because it’s the “Chaos” voice, but I had to put the speed on 1.25 because I didn’t know what the hell was happening with all the slow speaking. Threw me off completely.
LASTLY, LASTLY, the dialogue is always funny. So I liked that but it did not outweigh the bad. SORRY.

Loved it

I love absolutely everything about this book, except that the series is ending. But with all of the crossovers, I know we'll be hearing more about Chaos.

Audio perfection!

Where do I even start?
I’m so out of my wits in love and still in shock that I just finished my last Chaos book!! OMFG!!!!
HOT MESS HERE!!!
Free is a beautiful ending to one of my favorite all-time series!
Kristen Ashley brought Chaos series full forward with this final chapter! Just stealing a little more of me and making me fall harder for these badass bikers! The bond, the love, and the soul were utterly spellbinding. Just catapulting over you like a bald of love and a web of pure serenity!


I lived and breathed for every new Chaos releases. It’s almost as though a piece of my family will be lost forever!! But we still have the books and audiobooks to reminisce with, curl up!
