Meg's Review:I don't know how today goodbye. Well I do, but I don't want to. At least we will have Cam's book coming, so I don't have to say goodbye to this world. I digress, back to Olivia and Alexander. This is the last installment of their wonderful adventure. I had a lot of expectations with this book, I had questions and I wanted answers. T.K set her own bar high with the pervious books and did so well knowing that she would shatter us with this novel. Shatter is exactly what she did. Olivia has a lot to find out, and a lot to come to terms with once she does FIND OUT. Alex has a lot of secrets that he is holding close to his heart. DOn't fret though, even with all this weighing down on him, he's still got it. Some of the scenes in this book had me fanning self. Oh My, Mr. Burnham. So much needed to come out during this book, and I really didn't know how we were going to get all the answers without it feeling rushed. How was Olivia going to deal with it all? Well T.K. does it flawlessly. I NEVER saw some parts coming. They were out of the left field for me. This book is really like watching a movie. Some parts had you on the endue of your seats, while some were so emotional your breath gets caught in your throat.
"I know, Olivia, and I will never stop loving you. I've loved you since the day you were born, and I'll love you until the day you die. And I plan on making it up to you every day in between."A 5 star read for sure. If I could rate it higher I would. A Perfect ending to this wonderful series. Arc provided for Honest Review.
Let's take a moment of silence here people because this book stole my damn heart. Writing this review will help me lick my wounds and come to terms with the end ... Olivia and Alex's beautifully crazy love story has ended. I hope I am not the only reader that feels emotionally invested and depressed when I finish something magical and this my friends ... this is magical.
For those new to the series, Gorgeous Chaos is book 3 and final installment of Alexander and Olivia's story. Please read the books in order starting with A Beautiful Mess, A Tragic Wreck and finally dive deep into Gorgeous Chaos :)
Kept in a veil of secrecy over her past, Olivia is feeling nervous. Is there a reason she can't remember and what exactly do her dreams mean? Falling in love was never in her five year plan and marriage, umm no. Who can resist Mr. B though? From the moment their eyes met there was vivid recognition and extreme passion. Not just physical chemistry, but emotional need for each other. Moments apart were difficult for both of them, but reuniting was beautiful.
Confidentiality and secrecy were part of Alexanders world. His work required it, his life expected it, but Olivia, did she deserve it? Internal conflict ran heavy in these stories and I loved that. I loved that even when Alex thought he was doing something right, he questioned himself. And I loved that Olivia had a smart mouth and would demand her needs to him.
Have you ever seen an accident? Watched it happen in slow motion and just yelled nooooooooooooo, but knew you could do nothing? That is how I started reading this book ... knowing that the volcano of emotions were about to overflow and all I could do was watch. Gorgeous Chaos kept me on the edge of my seat and I honestly could not put it down. I was so desperate to find out Olivia and Alex's fate. The twists and turns made me gasp with shock. I love how just as I was thinking about a character, blam, the character appeared and had their own closure. The conclusion of this story was amazing. It was exactly what I expected; dirty, delicious, amazing, emotional, frantic, cosmic, the stars aligned with a perfect ending.
This book hits you with a 1-2 punch combo straight to the gut. It is steamy and sexy and sensitive. It is beautiful, and tragic and certainly gorgeous. If you are looking for something amazing to lose yourself in, grab these books. You will not be disappointed!!
T. K. you crazy good author. Every detail was thought out .. I could feel that. The play list was fantastic. The details in this book were on point excellent ... from describing the weather to describing the wardrobes of these characters, I could see it, I could feel it. That is art my friend. If there was a writing museum, this work of ART would be on the wall for us all to see and touch. Thank you, for this and for everything I know is to come.
