Product description

Product Description

You’re never really out until you’re dead. That’s what the mob bosses, gunrunners and car thieves of Seattle will tell you, anyway.

Zeth Mayfair, ex mafia enforcer, has other ideas. Since falling for Sloane, he’s managed to turn her life upside down. Now, he’s determined to give her a stable, happy and, most importantly, safe life. If that means he has to sleep with one eye open and one hand on a shotgun, then that’s what he’ll do.

Mason Reeves is just looking for a way to take care of his sick sister. Since their mother left, things have been hard, and they’re only getting harder. Prescription meds don’t come cheap, and working as an auto mechanic only pays so well. If he wants to give Millie the life she deserves, he’s going to have to earn it with his fists. And who better to teach him how to fight than the guy who took down the biggest gangster in Seattle?

You can try to get out…

You can try to be good…

You can steer clear of trouble…

But it’s only a matter of time before trouble comes looking for you.

*** Zeth and Sloane are back alongside a cast of new characters in the new Chaos & Ruin series ***

Violent Things is Book 1 in this, the sister series to Blood & Roses.

You can read this book if you haven't already read the Blood & Roses series! Upon delivery of the book, you will find an in-depth synopsis of the previous series, should you wish to jump straight into Violent Things but are yet to meet Zeth Mayfair & Sloane Romera.

Of course, Violent Things will be more enjoyable if you start their journey from the very beginning. If you choose to do so, the reading order for the Blood & Roses series is as follows:

***Gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review***

Zeth & Sloane are back!!!!!!

We see Zeth has mellowed out (slightly) and is on the straight path, Sloane is still working at the hospital working all the hours god send, Zeth and Michael still running the gym Blood & Roses.

Zeth being his naughty commanding self is still pushing all of Sloanes sexual buttons which leads to some Hot Hot sex scenes and a return of the Black Duffel Bag!!! how I have missed that bag!!!

We get to meet a new character called Mason Reeves, right from the get go I loved his character, he isn't without his own personal problems which I'm guessing could get worse as DEA Lowell rears her head and also a few other characters but I'm sure Zeth and Michael will get to business and sort it out.

We see the transition in Zeth and Sloane's relationship which also surprises Zeth as it goes into a deeper level of emotions which I absolutely loved.

With drama,passion and humour Violent Things has a promising start to an excellent series, one which I can wait to start the journey of reading.

Violent Things is the first in the new Chaos and Ruin series by Callie Hart, you need to have read the whole Blood and Roses series first to follow the story line and one or two twists that arise. It's time line crosses over with Hell's Kitchen so be prepared for a few Italian's causing issues for Zeth, hot action and everyone fighting to do the right thing. It's an intense, emotional and action filled quick read but full of what we all wanted: more Zeth and Sloane, a surprise or two and an ending that leaves you begging for more!!

This is a short read with Zeth and Michael working together at the Blood and Roses gym whilst keeping eyes forever open for anyone looking to cause chaos in their lives, just as Charlie's gone doesn't mean their won't be consequences for them. One night their bloody sparring is disturbed by Mason Reeves; a desperate and driven young man with the weight of the world on his shoulders, Zeth sees something within Mason but can he be the man to help him in his hour of need? He's a mechanic by day and needs extra cash so fights by night to raise the cash he so tragically needs, but being in such a position leads people to make choices they usually wouldn't, will Mason make the right decision when offered a chance to make money?

Sloane is still focussed upon her work, settled in her new role as Zeth's girlfriend but can she ever make amends with Oliver Massey, her co worker, or has too much happened to make things right between them?
One thing is clear Zeth and Sloane still have a deep connection and will cross any line to be together.

First up - must say that I recieved a copy to review from author.
BUt besides that, Callie - thanks so much for giving us another dose of Zeth and Sloane! I have LOVED this couple right from the start - Deviant was a massive hit with me and then the Blood and Roses series just got better.

I was glad that Zeth is still just as badassed as always, but he is tempering it with some sweet - even if he has no idea what he is doing.
It was amazing to see Zeth and Sloane settling in with each other - B&R was such a action packed rollercoaster for them and us as readers, that this was a nice change of pace - but I don't believe it will last. Zeth is just too much of a action man! It was great to see Michael again - I still find him an intriguing character - and I am waiting patiently for his story.

In Violent Things, we also saw the return of a not so favourite character - the dreaded DEA agent, who is unfortunatly still after our man Zeth.
We had the pleasure of meeting a new man - who is gonna be a awesome badass himself - I can just feel it; Mason is looking after his sick, little sister and trying his best to survive. And from the looks of it - the man has balls of steel, as he has been breaking into Zeth's gym after hours.

I always recommemd Callie's books to people who like their romance dark, the Blood and Roses Series, the Dead Man's Ink Series and now the Chaos and Ruin Series. Callie, keep em coming!!

MORE Zeth 'Motherfukin' Mayfair!

This is the first book in the Chaos & Ruin series which is a spin off from the Blood & Roses Series series and takes us back to Zeth and Sloane.

Violent Things not only centres around Zeth and Sloane but also introduces new characters; Mason and Kaya and of course brings back Michael

Zeth is living the good life, on the straight and narrow (or as straight and narrow as it's ever gonna get, I mean come on... It's Zeth 'Motherfukin' Mayfair - He's never gonna be a fully law abiding citizen) running his gym.

Sloane is back at the hospital working crazy long shifts and having crazy hot sex with Mr Deviant himself (Zeth).

But you know what they say; good things don't last forever! between a call from Roberto Barbieri (check out offering Zeth a job and Agent Lowell sniffing around, how long will it be before the good life comes crashing down around Zeth and Sloane?

I absolutely loved this book! I highly recommend this book
