Born to a King of Chaos patch holder with a case of wanderlust and a self-centered mother, twenty-one-year-old Nevada Weber is used to taking care of herself. She's spent her life skating by on her wits and pure determination. When she lands in a situation, she can't haggle her way out of, she's forced to rely on another brother for help. Club enforcer Gage "Wizard" Carmody has done his job too well over the years. Icy and numb on the inside, he walks around in a prison of his making. When the bright green-eyed girl he helped raise winds up unclaimed and in need of protection he steps in seeking redemption. In a life where destruction lurks around the corner, they discover something with the potential to bring healing and happiness. But when you live in Chaos nothing goes as planned.
Spun is the first in a series about the Kings of Chaos motorcycle club. Nevada is a twenty-one year old who grew up in the club. Her parents were distant and she was shuffled around to various homes growing up. The club was her one constant but also made her feel beholden. While trying to figure out her next steps she gets into a bad situation. Her way out is Wizard, a fellow life time club member.
- Nevada and Wizard are fully fleshed out characters. They both have consistent voices and the choices they make fit in with their world.
- The story was solid and ancillary characters and plots meshed well.
- I could see a series flowing from the world created.
- Some terms for the female anatomy could be considered offensive. However, in the situations and the background of the characters it did not bother me.
- It was referenced a few times that the Kings of Chaos MC was not like you saw on TV. As an avid SOA watcher I know what they were referring to, however this is a fictional book set in a fictional world and I didn’t feel that that reference was needed.
- Wizard is introduced as older than Nevada’s father and as an uncle figure to her. This is just slightly creepy to me. Age differences are fine but to specifically say he was like her uncle and took her to her dance classes when she was little was just a little gross to me.
- There were a few consistency issues, which just make me nuts. Nevada was said to be 5’ 8” and then was called petite. Wizard’s dad died when he was 2, then it said he was raised by his father. An injury in an arm was then referenced to be in a leg.
Overall – I enjoyed this story. As an avid SOA fan this series could fill my MC void well. The characters fit their surroundings well and the plot did not drag. Other than a few small issues it was really enjoyable. I would read the next in the series without a doubt. You can find this as an e-book on Amazon.
