See what our review team is saying about Deception And Chaos

Normally in these stories, it's the man who can't commit or wants a relationship. This tale of broken people is a little in reverse. It's book three in The San Diegan series but you don't need to read the first two books. It can definitely be read as a stand alone. Sam is a broken woman who didn't grow up with any kind of love. Because of this, she never learned how to be loved or give love. She does have a good friend with benefits with Alex. As their relationship deepens, Alex decides he wants more but Sam just isn't able to give back. Does Alex have it in him to get Sam to change her mind? Is Sam too broken to let Alex in?

This book was friggin awesome! From page one you are thrown into the things that nightmares are made from. Dark, disturbing.... my kinda read. Reminded me of two of my other favourite authors, Ker Dukey and K Webster. That ending!!! Wow. What a cliffhanger. That’s all I’m saying because I don’t want to ruin it for others! No spoilers on this one! A MUST READ!

What a read!

From the first page it dives straight in to the deep stuff. There is no holding back. Lots of twists and dark moments. It takes some time to get to the coupling, so be patient, but having said that it certainly keeps you on the edge of your seat. And seriously, that ending..........

Gah! This dark and twisted story had me hooked by page 1. With all the emotions i felt, it was as if i was right there. Great read loved it cant wait for book 2!!

Deception and Chaos is just that, it is deception and full of chaos! And I loved every minute of it!!!! Sophia has been to hell and back, but is unknowingly saved by her brother and his band of brothers. One of those brothers is Creed, the Devil. It's so easy to see what Sophia sees him. There is a definite trigger warning with the beginning of the book, but it is part of the story. Reader be ware this story does end on one hell of a cliffhanger!!! I am biting my nails waiting on the next one so I can find out what happens next!!!

Sophia Cova lived a quiet, normal life, shadowed in sadness after the loss of her parents in a tragic airline accident. With her older brother being her only living relative and her anchor, Sophia is sure she’s destined for a brighter future. But that was until she was taken.

Stolen from her mundane, orderly life, she was drugged, and woke to every woman’s worst nightmare.

With only four grimy basement walls and a rancid mattress, she loses her sense of time, and preserves what’s left of her dignity by hurtling herself into the safety of her mind. The men, the beatings, they come and go with no reaction, until she hears one word that sends an arctic chill through her body. Sold.

On the eve of Sophia’s bidding, all hell breaks loose in the mansion of horrors. Gunfire and screams erupt all around her, as panic rises.

Snatched by one monster only to be taken by another, Sophia slowly starts to learn that not everything is as it seems. When secrets unravel, and the twisted game of cat and mouse ensues, The Puppeteer pulls his favorite strings and chaos brews. Lives are lost while the clock ticks, and only time will tell who will be killed next…
