Beautiful Chaos by Alex Tully

Stand Alone

Publication Date:  June 16, 2016

While most seventeen year-olds work part-time delivering pizzas or whipping up frappuccinos, Brady O’Connell’s job is a little less conventional. Helping his dad with the family ‘business’ is a responsibility he doesn’t take lightly, especially when thousands of dollars are being exchanged. There are rules to be followed, timetables to be kept. But when his best friend Jay gets backstage concert tickets, and business interferes with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet their favorite band, Brady decides to break the rules, just one time.

And one time is all it takes to send his life spinning out of control. When an envelope full of cash ends up in the wrong hands—specifically in the hands of a pretty red-head named Vivienne—things get messy in a hurry. Where Vivienne goes, a whole lot of chaos seems to follow.

But sometimes…chaos is a beautiful thing.

From the author of Hope for Garbage comes another fast-moving, emotionally-charged tale, full of plot twists that will keep you guessing, and true-to-life characters you will root for. Most of all, this is a story of first love—crazy, chaotic first love—love that hits us hard, and never lets go.

My Thoughts

Brady helps his dad run a bookie business and one night him and his friend get tickets to go to a concert.  So he has to hurry collecting/exchanging money the night of the concert so him and his friend are not late.  One customer, Sutton does not show up before they leave for the concert so they drop it off at his house.  Sutton was not home, so Brady hands the envelope of money to a girl who he thought was his daughter, Vivienne.

Brady finds out Sutton does not have a daughter, so Brady has to go hunt down Vivienne to get the money back.  But Vivienne ends up losing the money and her and Brady go and try and find the money.  They end up liking each other, but they go through a lot of chaos to actually be together.

First of all I am from Ohio and I love the Cleveland Browns, so to read a book that the main character is a fan of the Browns was really cool.  The Browns are terrible but you definitely are a fan for life. Anyways, I thought the book was ok, interesting but not really engaging.  It ended up being a cute romance, but nothing over the top.

I received a copy from YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.
