Review: Riot by Jamie Shaw


When Dee Dawson meets sexy mohawked guitarist Joel Gibbon, she knows it won’t be long before she has him wrapped around her finger. No guy has ever been able to resist her… but Dee’s met her match in a player like Joel.

Dee’s not the relationship type—not after seeing the pain “love” has caused her friends and family—yet she’s desperate to make Joel want her more than anyone else. He quickly becomes an obsession, and when a reckless attempt to make him jealous ends in disaster, Dee turns into the damsel in distress she never wanted to be. With her carefree world crashing down around her, the last thing she needs is Joel’s pity.

But Joel is suddenly determined to prove he cares, and no matter how hard Dee tries to push him away, he refuses to let her shut him out. Now the girl who swore she’d never say those three little words must choose between guarding her heart and losing Joel forever… or falling head-over-heels for the tattooed rock star of her dreams.


I absolutely loved this book and this series! Dee and Joel’s story is steamy, dramatic, and amazing! I love how their relationship begins as a game where they are dancing around each other and then before they know it, they are falling in love and in denial. Joel is so d*mn swoon-worthy, at 40% I am falling head over heels for Joel. At 56%, I contemplate stopping because I know that my heart is going to hurt and break. Then the remainder of the book I simply can’t put it down until it is over because I need to know how it ends.

I love how Riot also gives me a glimpse into Shawn and Kit’s book (Chaos). Its not overly done either, there is just enough to peak my interests without taking away from Dee and Joel. This story just make me happy, by the end I was wearing a cheesier grin. I loved how Dee and Joel seamlessly complete the broken parts of each other. I still love Adam the most though.
