Adelaide McGregor was spinning out of control, in a world of pain that no one knew anything about. She put up a front, displaying a picture perfect girl that everyone wanted to be, but no one was truly there for her. Then she was sent away to live near her grandparents due to bad behavior when her mother decided she just didn't want to deal with her any longer. Without a penny to her name and no where else to go, her life was uprooted to North Carolina. Everything seems to be changing for the better with her fresh new start until she meets a guy who flips her world upside down all over again. Sometimes you have to make it through the struggles of imperfection in life for everything to come out as complete perfection, but Della hasn't quite learned that lesson yet. (via Goodreads)

Chaotic started out so formulaic and had a little angst. Della was really sort of a bad girl. I actually disliked her at first because she was really unlike-able. Although I kept my mind open because I know she experienced something that made her like that. Ta-da! She really did experience something that was really not a normal occurrence for a girl her age. It was unbelievably annoying especially it was her Mom's fault. Seriously though. Her Mom!!! But that didn't make me like her either, I'd be honest that I want to punch her all throughout the story!

When Della moved back to her Grandparent's house, I immediately liked Nash for her. He was the sweet guy that every girl wants and that guy who was always taken. Of course, Della wouldn't mind right? She might be opening her legs to a lot of guys but she wasn't one to break other's relationship. At least, she still has some dignity left.

Then Della started to go out with Justin, the bad boy type every girls falls for. At first, I hated Justin but as the story went on, I actually liked him! Weird thing is, I didn't feel how their relationship started. I swear my life right now. It's kind of insta-love but it wasn't. It's really weird. To the point that I can't even explain it! But I know when their relationship was already in the middle. I don't know if I forgot when they started to feel something for each other or if it wasn't really written. I really don't know. I swear. But I felt sort-of swoony when they were together. Especially their first date. Who knew bad boys can give a girl a proper date? So yeah, that's what made me give in. I have a soft spot for bad boys who do such sweet things. And really, I think Della deserved that. They sort of saved each other. Justin became a one-woman man already while Della was able to be that behaved woman her parents and grandparents were waiting for.

Although I think, Della still have some issues on her own. Sure, Justin did something really stupid. And honestly, if someone did that to me, I think I'll just pass out or something. Kidding aside, Della had the right to just ignore Justin. But she did feel something for him! Not like with other guys before. So I guess that's a start. I really do think she really have to accept what happened to her before so she can move on. Maybe we'll see that in the second book?

Before I finish this review, I have to vent out how much I hate Della's mother. My goodness. I think her Mom have some psychotic problems. No really. The reason she divorced Della's Dad? That's just so really stupid. I swear I can give some theories on her personality. I hope her mom's attitude will be explained in the next book. So even if for just a little, we can understand her actions. Or not.

Chaotic has some serious issues tackled. It also contains sexual scenes which I didn't read. Again. I don't want to invade their privacy, duh! Weird me, I know. Although I have to be honest that some of the issues weren't tackled well enough for me. That's just my opinion, okay? I'm sure you'll feel different since we have different perspectives. I also may not have really connected to Della in such a deep way but I sort of get why she was being that kind of girl. But honestly, Chaotic was a nice read. I really find its premise promising. It'll show you how such imperfections must be accepted because the only way we can see beauty in someone is through their imperfections. I'm hoping there will be more in the second book!


This is such a funny scene! Well, for me! Enjoy!

EXCERPT

"Oh yes, because up until now those decisions have been so wise." Touche mother, touche. "And about those decisions, have you decided on where you will be attending school? You don;t have much time and you should have already submitted applications for any of the schools that are worthwhile. I'm sure Gerald could put in a word, if necessary."

"I have a few weeks to decide still, I'm sure I'll figure something out, But I don't think I need any of Gerald's influence. I'd prefer to do things on my own." I gave the waiter a wide smile as he sat my chocolate-drizzled banana-stuffed French toast down in front of me, and he gave me an equally flirty one.

I bit my life as he held my stare for just a second and then cleared his throat with a shake of his head, setting down my mom's plate in front of her. I saw the look of distaste flash across her face but was quickly covered up by a pasted on smile. I wasn't sure if it was because of my breakfast choice, which, by the way, I had found out was oddly the perfect cure to a hangover, or the fact that, Derrick, as his nametag read, was paying attention to me.

"Really, Adelaide?" She hissed as soon as he was out of earshot but not before he have me a qick wink. Hmm..now those hands looked to be skillful and could occupy plenty of my time.

"Didn't you learn your lesson the first time you spread your legs? You are too young to be so...experienced." I choked on my cucumber water at my mother's words and looked around to see if anyone had heard. Honestly, I really wouldn't care but she was all about appearances and was constantly worried about her image.

"Don't worry, mother. I'm not being stupid about it, I'm on birth control, and whichever penis I pick is most certainly wrapped. So when and if I feel the urge to spread my legs, just know I'm being one hundred percent safe. Even if I'm not exactly laying back and spreading my legs, you know there are so many different positions I love to try out. Have you ever heard of the Dolphin? It's fairly tricky but once you get the hang of it, can be amazing. It also helps that I'm so flexible," I added loudly before laying my napkin on my cleared plate.

My mother's face had burned a bright shade of red halfway through my little speech and I couldn't help but pat myself on the back. I said a silent thank you to Marley for making Madison and I look at that Kama Sutra sex book. Who knew all of the knowledge could be used for more than one thing?

"We will finish this discussion at home Adelaide Elizabeth. Just know that I'm very displeased with your behavior." She drained the rest of her fifth mimosa and stiffly smiled at Derrick when he returned with the bill.

He titled his jet-black head towards the bill that my mother was holding out and wiggled his eyebrows at me before leaving. I'm guessing that meant his phone number was listed at the bottom. How original. If you're going to give me your number, at least don't give it to my mother. She might end up actually using it for herself.

I was actually shocked I enjoyed it. No pun intended. I really had a bad feeling about it on the first few pages, you know! But I was glad that I somehow liked it as the story went on.
