Check out our review for the awesomesauce new release SEDUCTIVE CHAOS by A. Meredith Walters. She is a favourite here at Flirty and Dirty. And her stories tell you why. Don’t forget to read the excerpt and view the trailer!!!!
Cole Brandt was the self-centered and philandering lead singer for Generation Rejects
Vivian Baily was a flaky, attention seeking drama queen.
Apart they were challenging…together they were complete and total chaos.
Cole and Vivian were two people who should never have been together.
Yet they crashed into each other at every turn.
Their relationship was anything but stable. But it was passionate. It was messy. It was hopelessly seductive. And it might possibly drive them both insane.
They fought. They made up. They screamed. They made love.
They hated and they loved in equal measure.
And now that Generation Rejects are starting to hit it big and the band is on the road, temptation and massive egos could very well spell the end of their roller coaster.
If only they could stay away from each other.
But Vivian has finally reached her breaking point. Tired of their endless cycle, she is ready to say goodbye to Cole for good.
Yet Cole isn’t one to go away quietly. Particularly when he is starting to realize exactly what he stands to lose if Vivian walks away.
As his world begins to turn upside down, Cole realizes that the one person who can hold him together is the girl who may no longer want him.
Love can be a comedy of errors, particularly for two people who never seem to get the timing right.
And In the crazy world of rock and roll, the hardest lessons to learn just might be the ones with the sweetest rewards.
Hey BB well Firstly how delighted are we to be back reviewing together? VERY!! J So the first words to come to mind Favourite so far BB! This book had me right from the beginning because of the instant intrigue I had with all the head games Cole and Vivian played with each other. I mean seriously BB if messing with someone’s head was a Olympic sport these two would be winning gold…
What about you Naomi I know we loved the other books so what did you think?
Hey BB firstly let me agree.. it’s great to be back doing a review together again. 😉 I really really enjoyed this book. I mean like you have said the head games and twisted psychology of Cole and Viv were epic and I found myself thinking REALLY! Your gonna let him get away with that but then Viv would explain and as much as you didn’t want to get it you kind of do.. Scary Huh!! These pair were so brilliantly matched as polar opposites!!
Okay Davetta now for your view on our Rocker Cole??
So I kind of feel I should duck when I say this to you BB… I LOVED Cole *ducks and waits for flying shoe* I know that he is a complete douche and so full of himself oh and such an ass but….. hey he made no promises of wine and roses he made it clear from the very beginning and he just wanted the rock and roll lifestyle. If it helps any I tried to ate him but I just couldn’t do it. BB if you put your hand on your heart would you not agree that he could not be any more sexy of he tried.. I mean come on BB Cole is a Rock God right??
So Naomi what say you on Cole Rock God or Rock Douche???
Okay Okay BB I will put my hand on my heart and tell you that for a lot of this book I didn’t like him and would say Rock Douche *hangs head in shame* I really tried but I just kept thinking ‘Holy Sh*t’ if he treated me like that I would have ripped off his junk! But this is why I love reading, the more you read the more you learn about why characters are arrogant narcissistic pr*cks (yes that was my initial description of Cole) and then it all starts to change. Behaviours fall into place and you start to get that warm fuzzy feeling. Although I am not so sure everyone will feel that way.. but that’s what makes this book great.
So Vivian the minx what were your thoughts Davetta??
Well I will start as always by saying how much we don’t like a weak leading lady in our stories do we BB? I think that some people may read this book and think just that. I don’t see it that way at all in fact I think Viv was made of some real tough stuff and a very honest person about the woman she was. I think she craved attention so much at times it was her downfall but she owned that sh*t and I think that was when she truly began to shine.
What do you reckon Naomi do you agree with my take on Vivian?
Well well well what a filthy little madam Vivian turned out to be hey BB!!! But I have to say I agree with 110%. I don’t think Viv was weak and at times I think it took real courage to just be who she wanted to be, and do who (oh I mean what..lol) ever she wanted to make herself happy. I have to say at times I did get frustrated with her because she even admitted she was ‘Bakersvilles prettiest doormat’ and I just thought she could do better… but hearing Coles side of the story helped you get over that. I think on some levels she was just as arrogant as Cole and that’s why they made for the perfect match.
Okay so last but not least our joint opinion of Seductive Chaos?
Well I think we both agree that Viv and Cole’s relationship (if that’s what you can call it.. as they certainly didn’t!) was so completely and utterly destructive from the beginning that the title of this book ‘Seductive CHAOS’ was just hitting the nail on the head. But that is what made you want to turn the pages in this book because you wanted to know how they could ever get anywhere with each other when the basis of your ‘relationship’ is rage jealousy and filthy f*cking with a lot of arguing in-between. We would have to agree that there are times that you think that it won’t work and we found our hearts broke a little at the prospect of them going their separate ways.
But this book was about more than just a messed up relationship. It was about trying to find your way in the world as an adult and making the right choices when others are ther influencing you. It’s about the fact there is always someone out there waiting to make things shitty in someone’s life so they can swoop in and take advantage when you’re at your weakest point.
But most of all to us it was about the importance of true friendship and about just how fragile it can be. But love is love and if you’ve got it then it can conquer all. No matter how much Chaos surrounds it.

I pressed myself up against Cole, my face an inch from his. My heart was thumping wildly, my blood was buzzing with fury.
“I am sick of your bullshit, Cole. You better walk the line tonight or you’ll be sorry. Do I make myself clear? I didn’t come all this way to be humiliated by you. If you want me here, then fucking act like it,” I hissed.
Cole’s eyes snapped and sizzled, his chest heaving up and down. He was flushed and just as furious as I was.
Then he grabbed the back of my head, his fingers curling into my hair and smashed his mouth down on mine.
The kiss was bruising and forceful. This wasn’t about romance. This was about domination. I bit down on his bottom lip and could taste his blood.
He pulled away, his lips swollen and bleeding. “I’m happy you’re here. Is that what you want me to say? Is that what you want to hear?” He grabbed my upper arms and pushed me back against the wall, his pelvis thrusting against mine.
“Does that make you happy?” he demanded.
I couldn’t take my eyes away from him. He was gorgeous. And he made me feel completely and totally alive. I craved this manic insanity that I only seemed to experience when I was with him.
Why couldn’t I be content with nice and normal? Why did I crawl over broken glass for this madness?
Why did I allow Cole to degrade me and humiliate me over and over again? Why did I scream at him and make a scene just so I could get this reaction from him?
What the hell was wrong with me?
What the hell was wrong with us?
I was so turned on I could barely stand. I wanted him to take me then and there. I didn’t give a crap about the people openly gawking at us. I thrived on it.
I wanted the hard press of his body against mine. I wanted the chaos.
“Yes! It makes me happy,” I bit out, giving him that tiny victory.
“Good,” he said, leaning in and kissing me tenderly on the nose. His thumbs caressed the side of my face. A remarkably gentle act from such a volatile man.
“Stand in front. I want to see you when I sing,” Cole murmured, leaning in to kiss me on the mouth. And this one wasn’t hateful or angry. It was soft and almost loving. And it shook me to my core.
Then he was gone and I stood there, my back against the wall, trying to catch my breath, not sure what the hell had just happened.
