Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
Now, Scarlett is 21, has been cut off by her wealthy father, and is happily living her life as an artist. Dylan has made a name for himself as an app designer, and is no longer the gutter rat that he was back in high school. Even though he knows he should stay away from Sienna’s little sister, he can’t help himself. “Starlet” always makes him feel like he’s worth something. She always had faith in him when no one else did.
It’s a really bumpy road for Dylan and Scarlett, and not just because she’s afraid to tell her sister they are together. He runs so hot and cold, partially because he still doesn’t feel like he’s worthy of her and he’s got some major demons in his past thanks to his messed-up childhood. But there’s a sweet connection that they have, and once Dylan gets over himself, their relationship really blossoms.
Until, of course, it falls apart thanks to big sister. I kept waiting for the reason why Dylan was so hung up on Sienna to be revealed, and once it finally was, it wasn’t what I was expecting. It worked with the parameters of the story, especially explaining how hateful the girls’ dad was toward him.
Hurt by the situation with her sister, Scarlett backs off and takes off — leading Dylan to make a big grand gesture to win her back. It’s sweet, it’s over-the-top and it really shows how much he loves her. She’s not Sienna. She’s Scarlett. And she doesn’t have to be anything but Scarlett. That tattoo. Swoon. That HEA left me with a huge smile on my face.
Sweet Chaos is a standalone, but there is some of Dylan’s history that is referenced from his sister’s book, Wilder Love. I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
